How was your Thanksgiving? Gram Rabbit's record release party: the good, the bad, the drunken louts. After one crappy band, Miche is riveted to the musical stylings of Crooked Cowboy and the Freshwater Indians (with "Heroes, part 1"). Not so much with Bloodcat Love, though Miche liked the Iggy-style nakedness of the lead singer. The drunken stupor he was in? Not so much. Props to Josh, the guitarist, though. Miche couldn't stick around for Gram Rabbit, who went on after midnight. Sadly, Indie 103 has discontinued its podcasts, quietly and without fanfare. The three Indie podcasts Miche really wanted: Check One Two, Dead Air and Passport Approved. And here's why. However, John Fogarty was on Watusi Rodeo this weekend (not in person).

Some Emmy moments rehashed. Miche is rooting for Heroes at this point. Visiting Tom O'Neill's Hollywood Museum with Boomer (from The Envelope). Marilyn Monroe's dresses! Tons of amazing stuff. You must visit. Emmy slights: No Friday Night Lights? No Lost or 24? No Craig Ferguson? Well, at least we do have "Dick in a Box" to look forward to. Pippa Rogers with "Anyway," available on the Podsafe Music Network. A bit about Twitter and Second Life. Then, on to the music! Second Hammer show: The Pity Party and The Little Ones. Everyone's birthdays. Everyone's dancing. Check One Two night: Hearts of Palm UK (Miche so digs the lyrics of their music), Thailand, the crowd favorite Happy Hollows and Good on Paper.  Third Hammer show: Low vs. Diamond and Castledoor. Amazing rocking night. Check One Two night: Moving to France (can that singer be any cuter?), Saint Motel (who may've been called Turkish Rocket in a former life), the dark Division Day and forget the last band.

Miche loves to dance at the Viper. The Emmy nominations come out tomorrow. Miche's bold prediction? Friday Night Lights to win. Miche's track record with Drama Series at the Emmys. Miche saw the latest Harry Potter, and enjoyed it, mostly. Miche was digging Halloran's interview (94.9) with Tom Delonge from Angels & Airwaves. Miche wishes there was a Dead Air podcast too.

Miche hips a soldier in Iraq to Indie 103. (Listen anywhere in the world: http://www.indie1031.com/listenlive.php)  Miche can't tear herself away from Dead Air long enough to record this show. Chuck P. is awesome! Why Indie 103 is different from other terrestrial radio. Summer belongs to Indie 103 and Check One Two. Magic awaits at the Hammer Museum, or at least Check One Two Volume III CDs. Miche gives a less than positive review of the first Check One Two night at Universal City Walk. However, she loves the heck out of Go Betty Go. And so does the Hispanic crowd, who loved the English-Spanish songs. The Willowz (who are on the Check One Two CD) with "Jubilee", available on the Podsafe Music Network (http://music.podshow.com). Miche's favorite Indie shows. Miche won tickets to hear Buck Henry speak at the L.A. Film Festival. He speaks about "The Graduate" and "Get Smart", and his experiences. Poor Charles Grodin. The dying film critics. Boston's Fireking with "Come & Go." (http://www.myspace.com/firekingrocks) Exciting Emmy news, hot off the presses, thanks to Tom O'Neil, Chris Beachum (aka Boomer) of The Envelope.

Miche's bad day, and how The Shys saved it. Miche's life changed that day. The Viper Room is far from Miche's, but walking is fun! The Automatic Automatic UK goes where no other Check One Two band has gone. And yes, we do mean the lighting fixtures. Miche is a dancing fool. The Adored seems to be missing a singer, but were fun anyway. The Red Hearts sets Miche to dancing also.

Saying hello to the world. The wondrous Check One Two 3-year anniversary. How bringing flowers to the doorman when there are two lines around the block is a really good thing. Big props to the gentleman named Caspar who rules the door. Shapes of Race Cars is already playing. Bumping into Scarlett Johannsson. Adam 12 from She Wants Revenge is spinning tunes. Check One Two the show on Indie 103. Miche digs Low vs. Diamond in a big way.  Something for Rockets put on a great show. Miche only liked the LA bands. Then the drunks start stumbling in. What not to say to a woman you want to pick up. The rooftop jacuzzi proposition. What Miche is doing this Monday night. And how to really pronounce Montmartre Lounge. Ziggy Marley with "Into the Groove," available on the Podsafe Music Network (http://music.podshow.com) The two movies Miche watched: Ocean's 13 and Knocked Up. While looking at George Clooney is always a good thing, Miche didn't think much of the third time around. Ellen Barkin rules. Miche LOVED Knocked Up, much to her surprise.

We start off with some California Dreamin, courtesy of the Monterey International Pop Festival (and the Mamas and Papas), available on the Podsafe Music Network (http://music.podshow.com). To the Angels vs. the Baltimore Orioles baseball game. Collect all your Indie 103 baseball cards now! Miche loves fireworks, too. Miche has always rooted for the Detroit Tigers. Miche is math-phobic because of her dad, but at least he taught her to love baseball. Miche viewed two World Series. People sure do like to drink, though. One must have a hot dog at the ballfield. Pinks is LA's hot dog place. Check One Two night was testosterone city. Nico Vega. The Ringers. The Gray Kid. Nico Vega's female fan base. The lead singer of The Ringers is great at simulating sex. Do we see panties? It's hard not to like a guy who grabs his cock onstage. How Lonely Love doesn't have to be. So many TV people in the audience. (We won't name names, but NBC prime time...) "There's no smile like the smile on your face." Salala by Angelique Kidjo, featuring Peter Gabriel, available on the Podsafe Music Network (http://music.podshow.com) Some rule changes at the Emmys, which will benefit The Sopranos.

"Is This Love?" by Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, available on the Podsafe Music Network (http://music.podshow.com). Yes, she says. John C. Dvorak is now at Podshow. Congrats to him (and us!). Check One Two night at the Viper Room has such great music! Last week: Divisadero, Berko, Twilight Sleep and Lo-Fi Sugar. Miche liked Berko the most. Lotsa TV actors in the crowd. The performance piece cabaret that was Lo-Fi Sugar. On Blast on Miche's MySpace page. "Wanna Lose Control?" by On Blast (podsafe for me). A couple more Indie 103 events you should seek out: Autolux on June's First Friday event at the Natural History Museum; Art Walk in Culver City with a concert after by Giant Drag (www.lacma.org). Why does Miche support a terrestrial radio station? Cause Indie 103 is cool, that's why. (Oh, and Mr. Shovel did play Berko, my bad...) Upcoming: the Cinematics at Montmartre in Hollywood. Emmy Moment: Supporting Actor in a Comedy. 1. Jeremy Piven, Entourage 2. Neil Patrick Harris, How I Met Your Mother 3. Rainn Wilson, The Office 4. Justin Kirk, Weeds 5. Jon Cryer, Two and a Half Men 6. Kevin Nealon, Weeds 7. Ethan Suplee, My Name Is Earl 8. Michael Urie, Ugly Betty 9. John Krasinski, The Office 10. Ed Helms, The Office or Kevin Dillon, Entourage The last day of Cannes. Do you have favorites? Michael Moore's Sicko and the two Red Balloon movies are the ones Miche wants to see. R.I.P. to Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip. Miche hated this week's episode. Studio 60 lasted less time than Sports Night. I hate you, NBC. Best of luck to you, Aaron Sorkin.
