Even Outer-Space has a Glass Ceiling

James Mercer (from the Shins) and Brian Burton (Danger Mouse) will soon release a video for “The Ghost Inside,” a track from their recent collaboration, Broken Bells (which Cydney wrote positively about way back at the beginning of march).  EW reports that starring in the video alongside Mercer and Burton will be none other than Mad Men‘s Christina Hendricks.

Hendricks plays a hard-working android who wants to retire to an outer-space resort community. The voyage brings Hendricks’ character into contact with Mercer and Danger Mouse, a.k.a. Brian Burton. On that meeting, Mercer remains mum. When it comes to her spaceship trip, he only offers, ”Things happen along the way that make it difficult.”

Poor Joan.  So savvy and competent, yet nothing ever seems to work out in reality the way we imagine it will…even in space.   Especially in space.

Anyway, sounds pretty fun to me.  If it has androids, chances are I’ll like it.  And if there’s one thing that Noise Narcs might like even more than Twin Peaks, it’s Mad Men.

Broken Bells, “The Ghost Inside”

Completely Tangential Update: Remember MTV’s Undressed? Yeah you do.  Turns out you can watch all six seasons for free online.  You’re welcome.  In the last four episodes of the first season, Hendricks stars as “Rhiannon,” a high-school senior staying with an older girlfriend in LA so she can visit college campuses (and get a head start on being free from her parents and their no-boys-allowed policies).

    Screw you. Why would you tell me that Undressed was available? Do you think I needed MORE ways to waste my time? Really? You’re the worst Noise Narc.

    • Heh. I regret nothing. Everything about that show is awesome, especially the soundtrack, the acting, the writing, and the filming, though un/fortunately I was wrong about being able to watch all 6 seasons. Only the first is available; that’s about 10 hours worth.
