Pete. Honey.

Babe, ya got to lay off the smack. It's making you look an idiot. Seriously.

And quit enabling him! British public, I'm talking to you. Seriously!

D'ya want another Sid Vicious situ on your hands, I ask of you? (Not that you handled that particular incident yourselves, but I digress).

Go State!

By all that is Holy, beat the freaking Jayhawks! For God's Sake, please!


Better than The Maltese Falcon? The Philadelphia Story? Easy Rider? The Godfathers (I & II)? Pulp Fiction? The Great Escape? Foxy Brown? Chinatown?

I am not convinced. Ah, but such is life.

Gee, I think Paul might feel strongly about this

Hee. Hee. Guess it can't be summed up any more bluntly than this.

God, that was a terrible pun. My apologies.

Okay, I think someone at Aunty Beeb has gotten into someone from Madchester-era Manchester's stash.

Shaun, Bez- I'm looking at you!


I have to say, I agree with the first four picks. But putting The Arctic Monkeys in at #5? Not sure I'm willing to buy into the famed Brit music mag hype that caused my beloved Stone Roses to implode.

Also Franz's debut ahead of Rubber Soul? Are you JOKING?

Sometimes, you have moments where you feel, "Gee, if everyone in this place knew this bit of information that I have, I would be worshipped as a minor goddess, like Persephone."

Or maybe it's just me. Bit of a problem with meglomania, I have.

This weekend, in Chi-town, I was at the Gap on Michigan Avenue. Got very cute, cheap fuschia ballet slippers for 10 bucks. Probably made by toddlers, but there you are.

At said store, "All These Things That I Have Done" came on over the stereo, and all that I could think of, "Jesus, I'm good friends with a lot of people who went to high school with Dave Keuning." (Word up, Carrie's O(W) and D(S), Jimmy C, Plants and Tommy DK:)

And, I felt very smug and cool, if only for a moment. But, that's what it's all about, innit?

(The song sounded great, and there was more than one person singing along to "I've got soul, but I'm not a soldier)." I felt like I was in on a great f-ing joke, you know, when you feel smarter than everyone in the room. But, only for a moment.

This goes in the "Oh Thank You, Jesus" category

Please, let this be true. The title of the article.

And.... Kim walked up the aisle to "Mockingbird?" WTH? Isn't that a tad, I don't know, CREEPY? Well, at least it wasn't the song where he fantasizes about killing the woman. Because that would be weird. Well, weirdER.

How. Does it feel?

Sorry, couldn't resist. Ooh, must be unfaithful to Mr. Weller, and listen to New Order.

This makes me feel better

Nothing like reading an article by another obsessed fan, to make you feel better about your own fangirl status. That being said, I got "Stanley Road" this weekend. Special edition. Have listened to it roughly 20 times since Friday. Very good, that.

See kids? These are QUALITY awards.

And I'm not just saying that since I own albums by all of the Best British Band & Best International Band nominees. Okay, maybe a little. Damn, I'm good!

**Okay, I don't actually own The Arctic Monkey's album yet. This would be difficult, as it hasn't been released in the Colonies yet. But I will, darn it!
