good afternoon, Sheila B. and everyone!
yes this Grimes is gorgeous!
gotta track down that M.I.A. version of "Jimmy" -- not sure if i have heard it??
speaking of Bollywood and "Hard Day's Night" (well sort of) . . . which WFMU DJ boys are going to take on "Boy With Luv" for the next Marathon Finale?!?
(all kidding aside -- want to know more about BTS' choreography; some of their videos look totally Bollywood influenced, at least to my eyes)
