Not sure who comes up with these ideas for Late Night with Jimmy Fallon , but man they're doing a damn good job. In a Brady Bunch-esque set up, Miley, along with Fallon and The Roots, perform an aacapella version of "We Can't Stop" that honestly sounds 10x better than the original. Her album, Bangerz , is in stores now.

Ahmir Thompson, aka ?uestlove from The Roots, and their producer, Steven Mandel, are secret "Elvis freaks." One of their early discussions about agreeing to their gig on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon was the possibility about playing with Elvis. The Roots took the job, and Elvis has now played on the show five times. From these collaborations, the seeds of something bigger grew, and that came to a very funky (and political) fruition with Wise Up Ghost, embedded as streaming tracks in this Guardian review, and available in a single stream from a fan on YouTube. If you'd like to hear more about how the "remixing" of some prior Costello pieces (Pills and Soap, National Ramson, and Hurry Down Doomsday, to name a few songs), Costello and Thompson spent about 40 minutes with NPR's World Cafe, or you can read their interview with the Guardian.

Jimmy Fallon and The Roots have already scored viral hits with their adorable acappella versions of the Sesame Street theme song, “All I Want for Christmas Is You” and “Blurred Lines”, and now alongside Miley Cyrus they’ve fashioned their own version of the controversial singer’s smash “We Can’t Stop”. Appearing in Brady Bunch-style squares, the late night host, his house band and the twerking pop star breathe new life into the ubiquitous single. The performance is a far cry from the singer’s more explicit antics of late, but unlike some of her more recent choices — this one is earning widespread praise. Check out the video above and let us know what you think. Does this performance make Cyrus more endearing?

Miley Cyrus continued her media blitz on Tuesday’s “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” and decided to keep her clothes on while pursuing music superstardom with a new tactic: Singing. The pop star performed her single “We Can’t Stop” a capella style with host Fallon and his house band, The Roots. Also read: Miley Cyrus Blasted by Stroke Association Over ‘SNL’ Tongue Joke The performance was a welcome contrast to her strip-club-style choreography and outfits at the 2013 VMAs that are forever engraved in the world’s collective memory. “I actually Love this video,” one commenter wrote on the “Late Night” blog. “Good job Miley, and with your clothes on even!!!” See video: Miley Cyrus Talks Sinead O’Connor, Says VMAs ‘Went Exactly as Planned’ “Only Jimmy can make it so I can hear the words and start to like it,” another new fan wrote. It appears that some people still prefer judging musical performances with their ears these days. Maybe there’s hope for America, after all.

One of the favorite beers from my recent Portland trip. I had one while I was there and had to bring one home as well.  This orange hued beer has a big hop aroma and the taste is really herbal and spicy with a background of citrus. All three tastes play well together.  Certainly a NW hoppy beer as opposed to a San Diego HOPPPPPPY beer but I like the difference.  Glad that Artisan Ales in Pasadena will be bringing Double Mountain into SoCal, now we just have to get their single-hop beers as well.  Plus the label hints at a certain different Cluster.  Very cool. I have been listening to the latest Elvis Costello album (do they still call them albums?) “Wise Up Ghost” that he made with The Roots and I am still trying to say if I really like it or if it is just so different from the mainstream that it pricks my ears up.
