friday favorites: october 8

WATCH IT: videos I peeped this week that you should too
Jimmy Fallon's tribute to Ben & Jerry's (with Ladysmith Black Mambazo) is hilarious! It's currently on the B&J homepage in honor of October being Fair Trade month.

Weezer sang with Hurley (Jorge Garcia) onstage in LA- a live shout-out to the namesake of their new album, "Hurley".

HEAR IT: songs I downloaded this week
I'm in love with KT Tunstall's new album, Tiger Suit. I saw her play an acoustic set in July, including most of the songs from Tiger Suit. On iTunes you can even buy her cover of New York I Love You But You're Bringing Me Down- live from the performance I attended at Hiro Ballroom! A fave: (Still A) Weirdo.

DO IT: things to add to your calendar
Tomorrow is Oktoberfest on Governors Island! There's no cover charge; beers are $7-$12. Last year the event drew a crowd of 3,000, so get there early! The festival runs noon to 5p; the ferry starts running at 10a from South Street.

John Lennon would have been 70 years old this weekend. You can see a free screening of a new film- LENNONYC in Central Park to celebrate. There's also an exhibit of Lennon's artwork this weekend in SoHo. 

New York Comic Con is this weekend! I am totally a geek at heart, and absolutely wish I was attending. I've wanted to go to NYCC for years... I think I'd even geek out so much as to dress up. Faye Valentine anyone? One really awesome event that I'd love to attend is Lord of the Rings at Radio City. They're screening Two Towers with the accompaniment of an orchestra!
