Our friends downstairs at MTV Hive have kicked off a brand new series: "Weird Vibes." In their first installment, they prove that they aren't afraid to ask the indie bands of the summer if it really is easy to have all of that buzz surrounding you. You may be surprised to hear the answer -- and yes, it's apparent that these artists read what you write on blog message boards about them, so be nice people.
Mix in there some of the most eye-popping videos you'll see this summer including this wild clip from Grimes that may just be the ultimate video for Lady Gaga's "Hair" that never was. Watch the Show Below and Get More at the Hive:

After making an auspicious entry into the late-night talk-show fray 16 years ago, Conan O'Brien took over the most revered show in the history of the medium on Monday night. In an assured and consistently funny premiere episode of "The Tonight Show With Conan O'Brien," first guest Will Ferrell (arriving literally on the shoulders of a slew of strong men) and musical guest Pearl Jam kicked off a week that's set to feature A-list talent galore, including Tom Hanks, Green Day and Gwyneth Paltrow.
Everything old was new again: Conan is working again with one-time sidekick Andy Richter (now the announcer) and buoyed by the sounds of Max Weinberg and the Tonight Show Band (seemingly abandoning their Max Weinberg 7 moniker.) Indeed, to any fan of O'Brien's body of work on "Late Night," the show felt quite familiar, if maybe a little amped up.
Of course, the biggest difference in the morphing of "Late Night" into "Tonight" is the new locale in Los Angeles. If the opening show is to be an indicator, it's clear that California will be ripe with material for the Tonight writers. The show began with a cold open of O'Brien ticking off things on his to-do list before starting his new job. Aghast that he'd forgotten to move to L.A., O'Brien was followed on an odyssey across America, running Forrest Gump-style through Wrigley Field in Chicago, past the St. Louis arch, taking time to make a pit stop in a Victorian doll museum, before arriving at his locked soundstage.
