Keef sings! For my money, best song off of 'Exile.'

NO- Round and Round

After much deliberation, I think this may be my fav New Order song. The video is v.v.v. cool, anyway.

I know

that it's kind of superficial and shite, but I love Nelly Furtado. Why?

1. My sister-at-heart, Joy, and I had a bang-up time at her concert in Houston


Nelly says the following on her iTunes Celebrity Playlist-

2."Live Forever"- This song and video made me think that music could save the world. Really, I think that Liam could have just rocked my world."
3. "Don't Look Back In Anger-" Noel was also formidably attractive. And he always saved the day. And I loved Liam's blue sweater in this video. Swoon..."

Rudy Can't Fail?

I love Keith Olbermann. "Rudy Can't Fail" (Clash song) was the blurb onscreen when he talked about Giuliani stumping for Rick "Man-On-Dog" Santorum.

Absolute brilliance.

And in other Pirate-related news

The Guardian has a gallery of 'who's who' in POTC....

Mmm, I'm kind of feeling Jack Davenport right now. Though again, not actually.

He's kind of got the Viggo Mortensen in LOTR- thing going on in this movie. You know, when he was all dirty and wet and riding a horse? I know you were thinking the same thing, you filthy birds.

(Boy, I'm all about the abbreviations today, huh)?

Moment of silence, please

Rolling Stone has a Johnny Depp Gallery. Articles, piccies (allegedly- can't get the link to work). Sweet Baby Jesus, look at the pretty!

Though not here, obviously. Though I do love me some Good Doctor.

Whatever, part deux

This is vastly superior to the TOTP version. And definitely shows that my beloved Noel was definitely not the worst-looking member of Oasis, circa 1994. God, he's a freaking SUPERMODEL compared to Tony McCarroll and Bonehead.

If I needed

any more confirmation as to how superior my musical taste is, just check out some of these choices for 'best second album ever.'

Britney is mentioned. So is Good Charlotte. As is Clay Aiken. Jesus.

(though in the posters's defense, many of the choices were decent).

Looky here! Best debut albums of all time

"The Velvet Underground & Nico", from 1967, was voted ahead of "Marquee Moon" by Television and "Are You Experienced" by Jimi Hendrix in the survey by Uncut magazine.

01 The Velvet Underground "The Velvet Underground & Nico" 1967
Television "Marquee Moon" 1977
03 Jimi Hendrix Experience "Are You Experienced" 1967
04 The Stone Roses "The Stone Roses" 1989
The Band "Music From Big Pink" 1968
06 The Clash "The Clash" 1977
Led Zeppelin "Led Zeppelin" 1969
Joy Division "Unknown Pleasures" 1979
Roxy Music "Roxy Music" 1972
The Stooges "The Stooges" 1969

Uncut is the Brit rock-snob mag for the rock snob of a certain age, but I'm certain you could infer that by the dates above. That being said,
look at #4! Yeah, boy!

I have the albums by the Roses, Jimi, Velvets, Band, Clash and Zeppelin. I'm not quite Rob Gordon enough to enjoy Roxy and The Stooges. The former has to do with I know exactly one of their songs 'More Than This,' and that's due to Bill Murray singing it in 'Lost In Translation.' The Stooges? I'm just meh about them. Yes, I understand how seminal they were, but I can't be bothered to listen to them. Though I really like to read Iggy stories. What a scamp! Hee hee.
