Everything Sounds Like Coldplay Now Video
Mitch Benn & the Distractions' video for "Everything Sounds Like Coldplay Now" gently spoofs the World's Biggest Band (they've conquered the world! I saw it on the cover of some magazines last month). Good video, they don't over-do it, and of course it includes some walking on the beach...

On a brighter note for Chris Martin, People magazine has named his "finger and hand designs" the year's #10 top style moment. According to "People", he "provoked questions about the tape on his fingers and lines on his hands. The tape draws the eye to the equals [sic] sign, which pays homage to his pet cause, fair trade."
