From bands like Metalachi to Ryan Adams giving Taylor Swift songs a Smiths makeover , the inventiveness of an idle musical mind just never ceases to astound. Given enough time and ennui, and humans will always find a way to amuse themselves by reconfiguring existing sounds, images and ideas. Witness the latest. It's probably already been all over your timeline, as it's in the process of going viral and soon to be edging out the clip of the couple serendipitously sharing their pregnancy announcement with the world. It's a band from Phoenix called Okilly Dokilly, which, as you'll no doubt recognize, just happens to be the catch phrase of a certain Simpsons character. "Myself and our drummer (Bled Ned) were in line at a grocery store, entertaining ourselves by coming up with really cutesy names for really hardcore, brutal bands," said the band's frontman in an interview with Rip It Up. com. au , explaining how the handle was conceived. "The name Okilly Dokilly came up and was very funny to us. "We ran with it," he added. "I contacted a few friends (Red Ned, Thread Ned and Stead Ned), and here we are. Most of us have played in other bands around our hometown. This is definitely the heaviest sounding project any of us Neds have done. The Arizona outfit has a set of demos on Bandcamp if you're dying to hear the rest of the tunes. "Nothing At All" — as in, the stupid and sexy one himself saying, "It feels like I'm wearing nothing at all" — with its Offspring-owing melody is probably the best of the bunch. Give it a listen, and then head to the Trunk Space in on Saturday, Sept. 5 in Phoenix if you feel like road tripping. It's their first show. Talk about getting the word out. Great gimmick. Yes indeedy. Read more from Dave Herrera at bestoflasvegas. Contact Dave at dherrera@reviewjournal.

Well, it’s official. Larry is real. No, no, sorry, just kidding. What’s official is that Louis Tomlinson, boy band One Direction’s adorable little Yorkshire terrier, is, in fact, going to be a dad. We heard the news some weeks ago , but until today, Louis himself had not confirmed it. This morning, Louis and the rest of his band (minus Zayn, of course) said good morning to America on the show Good Morning America , and host Michael Strahan... So how are you feeling. ” Now, I’m sure this question was pre-approved—I doubt Strahan just came out of nowhere with that. he’s a charming TV host, but he’s not a gotcha journalist—and, in response, Louis said , “Thank you. Obviously it's a very exciting time. So thank you. ” There’s video:. So, there you have it. This baby, which Louis is having with stylist Briana Jungwirth, is real. It’s happening. And, bless him, Louis says he’s excited about it. Sure, he and Jungwirth are just friends, and, yes, he’s but a lad of 23. And an unplanned pregnancy is often a surprising and difficult thing. But, like Louis said, it’s also exciting. And it’s not like Tomlinson and Jungwirth are working part-time at the Tesco and will have to live on the dole when the wee one arrives. They’ve got finances, they’ve got careers. They’ll be able to provide. It’s going to be fine. They’ll be fine. But will we. I mean, this is still pretty big news. It changes everything. One Direction will bring a new life into the world. Sure, they’ve given us all new life—new hope, new faith, new love—but we’re talking about an actual person. And I’m not counting that clone of Harry that Simon Cowell has locked up in his underground laboratory. That thing is an affront to God, plus Simon has stopped taking my calls about coming to visit it. So we won’t count that. This baby, then, is the first actual new life that One Direction is responsible for. And that’s something. It has profound effects. There will soon be a young human being to be concerned about. No longer can we carelessly speculate about love lives. Because that could hurt the child. Sure, sure, we could all say the easy things, like, “Briana will make a wonderful surrogate for Harry and Louis,” but we won’t, will we. Because that wouldn’t be right. We must think of the baby.
