Biggest midget in the game

I'm searching for any reason to watch The O.C. now that it's up against Grey's Anatomy and 30 Rock. My poor DVR can only tape two things at once and the only reason it's slotted ahead of 30 Rock right now is my weekly post on it.

Because of the Supersized NBC lineup, I missed the first half of the episode, but I did manage to catch the first five minutes thanks to a YouTube post, and the 5 stages of grief sequence was artistic - very un-O.C. like. Is this what we have to expect from Schwartz and Co. going forward? We'll see, but considering the episode was called "The Metamorphosis" we could see a more creative series from now on.

Musically, the covers project continues, this time with Syd Matters covering the Welsh band Super Furry Animals with "Hello Sunshine" and Editors taking R.E.M.'s "Orange Crush." Meanwhile, Ryan hasn't completely returned from his South of the border run (that makes two of us,) as he's now working at a Mexican restaurant, and apparently Ranchera All Stars is the house band because they contribute a whole five songs to this weeks mix.

But the song and artist I'd like to call out is Lady Sovereign, who's "Love Me or Hate Me" provided a short glimpse of the old Julie Cooper ("If you love me then 'thank you' and if you hate me then 'f*ck you'".) The self-proclaimed 'Biggest Midget in the Game' (she's 5'1") throws down some mad grime rap and helps Julie (along with tequila and some Chingy) get her grinding on the dance floor with some local youth.
