Asher Roth, Janelle Monae, Byron Ward, Tim Kash, John Loscalzo, Matt & Kim, Clipse, Tony DiSanto, Kim Stolz and More At The Woodies Afterparty

December 14, 2009 — 3

The Woodie Awards afterparty is always quite wonderful on many, many levels, most of which can't be discussed. In the heart of a recession, it's not like there's gonna be a holiday party, so this becomes a holiday party. It's a perfect combo of drunk artists, drunk celebs, drunk executives, drunk fans, drunk bartenders, drunk security, drunk...you get the idea. This year I stayed sober and found myself in hilarious conversations, including one in which a colleague asked if I attended the show this year. Attended? Um, yeah, dickfor. Anyway, here's some of what I remember... - DiSanto and I had a drink and talked about I can't remember what and even if I did I couldn't write it down here. - Kim Stolz slipped me her badge because I'd given mine to someone else so they could get into the party. - I had a great talk with Nick from Seven2 about how he needs to meet Kevin at Area/Code. I hope to work more with them both. - VJ Dana Sky and Nick Brown from The Real World were dancing and having more fun than anybody. - VJ Tim Kash analyzed the Woodies, in depth, which surprising I really needed and appreciated. - Clipse drank. - Byron Ward and I spoke about wtf comes next, and he told me about his comedy showcase thing, which I'm going to check out. - Asher Roth and I hugged. - Gina Esposito I thanked and thanked and thanked. - Chris McCarthy hooked me up. - John Loscalzo looked hot. - Doug Everson makes me happy. - Will I Am, I lost you... - Zooey, I am sorry. - Kim (of Matt & Kim) and I toasted her and Matt's huge performance, not to mention their surprise Best Video Woodie win (I called it months ago!). And then Asher Roth and Janelle Monae went and did this...

Naked At Woodie Awards Rehearsal

December 1, 2009 — 0

The best thing about rehearsing for this year's Woodie Awards: Soundcheck for The Dead Weather. Jack White = Pure Genius. (Even though he wouldn't let me film it.) The second best thing about rehearsing for this year's show: The bike messengers Matt & Kim brought. Eight messengers followed Matt & Kim on bicycles from Brooklyn to the Roseland Ballroom. The plan was for Diplo to spin a wicked set, then Matt & Kim and the bike messengers would arrive at Roseland, ditch their bikes, blast onto the stage, and the messengers would undress to become a naked chorus. We are perfectionists, of course, so we just had to rehearse this over and over and over to make sure they were, you know, undressing at the right time and everything.... After their actual performance at the Woodies, Kim (Stolz) caught up with Matt & Kim. Matt got Kim to admit she likes getting naked more than she lets on. Then they talk about the size of Kim's chest... Set your tivo -- Woodies hit MTV this Friday night, December 4th, at 10pm.
