Taylor Swift on SNL

Isaac Lekach :: Monday, November 9th, 2009 9:30 am

This weekend had some notable happenings: Julian Casablancas began his residency in Los Angeles, the Fun Fun Fun fest took place in Austin, Texas and Taylor Swift performed double duty on Saturday Night Live (host and musical guest). Of all them, Swift’s is perhaps the least Death+Taxes-y, but here’s the thing-we’re a fan of anyone that clowns on Kanye West. Watch her opening monologue after the jump.



Spike Jonze & Kanye West’s Short Film

There’s a video floating around where Spike Jonze slaps Kanye West during the making of their short We Were Once A Fairytale. The behind the scenes footage, while staged, requires far less patience than the short film does. Click here to see it.  Find WWOAF after the jump. If you’re going to watch the film we recommend fast forwarding to the seven minute mark. No offense Jonze, but there’s only so much West we can stomach-that said, we rather enjoyed watching him disembowel himself.

Welcome to the kind of official reintroduction of D+T’s links round-up, appropriately titled ”Today In Music.” If you live in New York City (and you don’t happen to reside under a rock situated smack in the middle of the mainstream), then you probably know that there’s a huge music fest going on called CMJ-which means there’s a hell of a lot going on in music today. Regardless, we have slogged through the spiraling corridors of the Internet to bring you a wholly fresh batch of links. Click your brains out after the jump.
