Hot diggity dog!

This weekend is starting to look better and better.

1. I saw "Harry Potter and the Order Of the Phoenix" tonight. It was good, though "Azkaban" will always be my favorite movie, because of the Ian Brown* cameo.

2. I don't have to work because.....

3. .....of a family friend's wedding tomorrow night. OPEN BAR! WHITE PEOPLE FLAILING ABOUT TO 'YMCA.' (quit giggling, Joy)

The last wedding this group all went to, my dad "went to sleep" at the after-party,and woke up the next day with a full face of makeup. My cement truck-driving dad.

I am ignoring the fact that the final Harry Potter book is being released as I write this because, well, I've no time to read it till Sunday. This is absolutely killing me, by the way. KILLING ME.

*I swear, my iTunes started playing 'This Is the One' as I typed that. Scaaaarrryyy.

I hate to alarm you, Kaz, but this clip involves nearly all of our favorite Brit rock stars....

Love it when Wee Kieran throws the award up and catches it one-handed. Also, there is an appearance of The Best Trench Coat Ever. And My Beloved Noel and My Darling Mani....

I would be lying my ass off

if I claimed that I didn't squee when reading the following-

According to an industry insider, Jimmy Page and Jeff Beck are going to tour as The Yardbirds this fall alongside founding bassist Chris Dreja and drummer Jim McCarty. The tour is said to kick off this October. It’s unclear who will be the reformed Yardbirds’ lead singer (original vocalist Keith Relf died of electrocution in 1976).

Heavyweight Champion Of the World

I know I'm a bit behind on this, but I absolutely love this song by Reverend and the Makers. The Rev (Jon McClure) is a F.O.A.T. (Friend Of Alex Turner). Song has a fantastic groove....And Jon's a nice Northern boy.

I wasn't going to post any more pictures of my favorite musicians for a while. But then I thought, "Who the hell am I kidding? It's rock boy season!" So here is a picture from Ibiza Rocks, of Serge in The Best T-Shirt Ever and Thomas in his glasses. I adore his glasses.

I'm a feminist, for God's Sak
e. I'm not supposed to objectify people based on their appearance. But. These. Two. Make. This. Next. To. Fucking. Impossible.


A picture of shirtless Carl Barat with crazy face is still, well, a picture of Carlito with no top on!

I would love to see this!

Though not really in keeping with my Cinderella-esque existence, this would make a wonderful birthday present for me.

So cool!

Cheap Trick are set to perform The Beatles' 'Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band' in Los Angeles from start to finish in celebration of the 40th anniversary of the landmark album.

The performance will take place at the Hollywood Bowl on August 10 and 11.

The American rockers will be accompanied by the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra as well as Aimee Mann, Joan Osborne and other special guests.

In addition to performing the entire album, the artists will play several Beatles favourites including 'Magical Mystery Tour', 'Norwegian Wood' and 'Eleanor Rigby'.

Rolling Stone's Italian edition

Is the best magazine, ever. Why? This photoshoot with Kasabian. Possibly the best picture in the history of photography.

Okay, maybe not- but it's right up there.....

Blimey, is it hot in here?

Thank God

Though I may have gone over to the dark *cough, cough, Blur* side, I was still thrilled beyond words when Kazza found EVERY OASIS B-SIDE EVAH! for me to download today.

Everything is right with my world. I still believe in peace, justice and the Mancunian Way.

I am spending my free time tonight reading foreign policy journals, and am by no means watching this.

But DAMN, does Becks look great!

I can't top this title line

"Dinna Look Back Into the Sun"

The View head into the recording studio over the next couple of weeks to record their own version of Libertines favourite ´Don't Look Back Into The Sun´. The song will be produced by the ex Suede star Bernard Butler and will be showcased on a show celebrating 20 years of BBC Radio 1. They´re also hoping to persuade a couple of likely lads to join them on backing vocals.
