Neu rave Keef!

Oh dear......


The amazing rock snobs at The Guardian love Girls Aloud's new album.....I want!

You're left pondering an album that by any standards seems pretty irresistible. It's witty, diverse, experimental and viscerally thrilling: what more do you want pop music to be? Frankly, the sort of person who claims they find nothing to love here is like the sort of person who claims to hate the Beatles: they're either posturing or they're an idiot. Either way, you should pay them no mind.

Cool List

The NME published its annual list of all things cool this week. My girl was in the top ten. Kate Nash is so cute, I want to keep her in my pocket.

Ahhhh, election season in Iowa

Actual convo between my mom and my brother.

Mom- (pinko commie- fangirling) "I got to shake Barack Obama's hand! At the Port Of Burlington! Wheeeeeee!"

My brother (former Republican-fanboying)- "Really? Because I saw John Edwards at the Pizza Ranch."

Seriously, you could swing a dead animal around anywhere in Iowa right now, and hit a presidential candidate. And they've all been calling the house. I keep telling the Demos, "I have not picked my boyfriend (or girlfriend) yet. Let me alone." Though I am leaning towards Dodd. Because he seems to have sense, and doesn't appear to take Rahm "Fucking" Emmanuel's word as law. Bless.

Oh, Peter.....

Darling. You must stay away from camera phones. And ideally, smack.

Babyshambles drummer Adam Ficek has spoken to NME.COM about Pete Doherty's recent drug relapse, explaining that the singer was "distraught" about the event.As previously reported on NME.COM, Doherty was filmed taking heroin on Friday (November 2).He said that the first thing that the singer did when the news broke was sort out a return visit to a drug rehab."He's distraught, he really is," explained Ficek. "But there's no point in dwelling on it - going back into rehab is exactly the way to deal with it."It's a small glitch in his recovery. People don't go into rehab after years of drug use then never dabble again. I support my friend and I hope it's a one-off. He's still in a great, great place and he's still in the best shape I've seen him."

and from Drew

Speaking exclusively to NME.COM, bassist Drew McConnell applauded Doherty's self-made decision to seek professional help, and slammed the person who videoed his relapse. "We heard they [The Sun] were going to run a picture the day before, but I assumed it was going to be dug up old footage," McConnell said."When you've just come out of rehab and trying to stay clean with all your might, then some cunt comes round your house with a bag of stuff and a cameraphone, it must be hard to stop yourself."McConnell went on to explain that, despite Doherty's relapse, he was confident his bandmate could still make a full recovery. "He's more than capable of eventually being 100 per cent clean", he said."The guy needs professional help - the fact that he is seeking that help is a giant step in the right direction."

Say what you will about Pete, but the guy has some amazingly loyal bandmates.....

'You Talk'

New single from Babyshambles. Dre's jacket looks like a McQueen. Mmm.....

Ukraine, Crimea, poppy flower field

This week's sign that the Apocalypse is upon us

Garth Brooks has overtaken Elvis to become the best-selling solo artist in history.
Let me sum up-

a cheeseball singer who gets credit for writing songs when he contributes important lyrical elements like adding "and" or "the," who RIPPED OFF BILLY JOEL'S ENTIRE ACT and who over-sings everything- just beat The King to become the best-selling solo artist in history.

People are amazing........
