This is supposed to make her seem less Hipsterlame? A Radiohead cover and intentional "shock" video?

Yawn. I liked Radiohead better when they were called Brian Eno.

I need to listen to 4 hours of Buddy Holly just to get this "ironic" crap out of my brain.

In fact, I think I'll listen to Zooey Deschanel covering the first punk. That should hit the spot.

I have a pretty good irony detector, I think, and I don't see the wink in what Palmer's doing. Just because she's picking up and comment on elements of the surrounding pop culture? We all do that. There may be elements that aren't to one's taste, but the eclecticism and spontenaity and the sense of not giving a shit what anybody thinks -- thumbs up.
