I would just like to declare my undying love for Cerys Matthews. I love her. And no matter how much "she descends into old fogeydom". I still love her. Her debut solo album (with the yummy Bucky Baxter!) is called 'COCK-A-HOOP'! … The woman is clearly a genius!

  • I just watched Last Night in film studies. See this movie. Fucking fantastic.
  • Today’s hint that I might be a bit too obsessed with cute, shaggy-haired indie things? Mariah telling me:

  • “Val, I think you use the word ‘indie’ as an excuse for you to like ugly boys!”

    Ouch! The truth hurts!

  • I want to free everybody! … But first you gotta buy me the shirts! Need a reason? "How can R. Kelly sex us up if he is in jail?"
  • An oldie but a goodie... Am I Emo?
  • “I am sooo emo right now... I just threw lint at someone before collapsing to the ground in tears…” - Oh God. Why didn’t anyone stop shoot me?

    Live Forever! A film about Britpop! How did I not know about this? I can barely breath! You gotsta check out the trailer - if for nothing else - to see Liam’s reaction when the interviewer tells him that he looks like a girl! Ha! I haven’t been so excited about something since...
  • I finally got the January 2003 issue of The Face with Craig Nicholls on the cover this morning!
  • Interpol was on “Last Call with whatshisface” last night. InterPaul is so pretty he makes me wanna drink bleach. (Oh and I still have mad love for the ‘PDA’ vid where they all look sooo dark and powerful and stuff that it burns.)
  • The Music are starting to get the love they deserve. Bless! Our boys are gonna be on Dave Letterman March 18th! And I for one am not too proud to admit that I *heart* Phil and that Rob looks *gasp* HOT in the new video. Respect.
  • Radio 1 is finally starting to show some love for my other boyfriends in OK Go! Jo Whiley’s making “Get Over It” her ‘Pet Sound’ this week... It’s about fucking time.
  • I don’t know how I feel about Roddy’s sweater… I think it looks terrible live (see Brixton Academy) but I love it onscreen (see “A Modern Way Of Letting Go”). Hmmm.
  • Justin Timberlake wears a dolphin costume and chills with The Flaming Lips... WHY?

  • My favorite boys next door, THE MUSIC, shoot the breeze. (I guess Adam can talk after all… just not to girls.)
  • “SpideyMouse” invaded Sociology1F90 today. The rodent proceeded to dart around my section (causing widespread panic and chronic leg-lifting on my part for fear it would climb up my flared cord pantlegs) before Spidey” displayed super-mouse powers by climbing up the freakin’ walls on the opposite side of the lecture hall only 5 minutes later. I don’t know whether to be scared or impressed.
  • Quotes from “Fuck Hair”
    “So he’s kinda a bit of a fuckhead huh?”
    “The guy’s hot and his sister’s super-fuckin’ hot”
    “Do these people of Flint give a flying fuck about Miss America? … Now I’m sure she’s a very successful porn actress in the San Fernando Valley or something like that… That’s what all former Miss America’s become.”

  • Conversation of the day
    Valerie: “I like Britney Spears… she’s hot!”
    Mariah: “Ick! She’s a slut!”
    Valerie: “Yeah but so are we.”

    Happy Birthday Nick Valensi! Stay beautiful! Oh and speaking of the birthday boy... Big Bird’s gone missing!
    ... Oh and I for one am not ashamed to admit that I watched Dawson’s Creek last night for Jack Osbourne’s cameo. Oh yeah!
    This week’s Popbitch is a doozy!
  • New music terms for 2003: Tetris Pop. Acts created to fit a specific youth demographic identified by marketing executives. For example: Avril Lavigne.
  • Gak Attack! Club installs Goffey Shelves. Since Soho House's infamous "dropped E" incident in which Jude Law's toddler ate someone's ecstacy tablet, the club have taken steps to rid themsleves of their druggie reputation. (Our suggestion: get rid of their entire clientele) All the flat surfaces in the toilets have been replaced with slanted shelves to make gak-snorting impossible. The club have christened these new surfaces "Goffey Shelves" - in honour of Danny Goffey, the Supergrass drummer, legendary caner and host of the party where the baby ate the pill.
  • I’m thoroughly disgusted. T.A.T.U. are YOUNG lesbian popstars. Ick! Sad thing is I bet this will be huge in America.
  • Oh and check out this Guess The Paedophile game.

    My Professors and TA’s are all crackheads. Examples are as follows:

    “Now I kinda feel like a creepy sex-ed teacher… Whatever gets you off… That’s what we’re here for!” - “Fuck Hair” after discussion on the “fucked-up, creepy gynecologist” and “boys who can’t keep it in their pants” in High School.


    “This school is shit!” – Professor Nicks (Film) also on High School.


    “Echinacea? Give me the good stuff! The good drugs! The painkillers!” - One of my many stoner professors complaining about his cold.

    I just realized MTV’s True Life “Fat Camp” was being repeated and thought of how much Meghann might enjoy it (as I imagined her laughing her non-existent ass off last time I saw it)… Anyway, I call and greet her with “Whatchya doin” and without hesitation she says, “Watchin’ fat kids on TV”. Hahaha… I hate skinny folk… But I’m excited cos we’re gonna go get nachos after its over!
    I’m seriously considering transferring to Mooney Suzuki University! (Link from Laura)

  • Building on my last post… The actress/rockstar trend hit an all time peak yesterday when ACTRESS Natalie Imbruglia and ROCKSTAR boyfriend Daniel Johns announced their engagement. Additionally, there are rumors floating about that Drew Barrymore and Fabrizio Moretti are tying the knot. Meep!
  • Today’s film seminar was good too (despite discussion on the 30-minute documentary we watched about SORTING MAIL on Monday. Ick!) I was ever so pleased to hear some more words of wisdom from “Fuck Hair” the Film T.A. “Aha! Fuck You! That’s not what that is… Jackass!” Brilliant. Oh and we also learned that he has a girlfriend so at least his hairstyle is authentic…
    My girl Lyn had a rather amusing reaction today in Sociology lecture. After our Professor briefly mentioned a woman who gave birth to a baby girl that was over 12 pounds Lyn blurted out “That’s not a baby! That’s a turkey!”
  • Interesting observations: Moaning Myrtle from Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets (which is ace!) reminded me of Meg White. I think it was the pigtails. SEE!
  • Oh and in their new video for “Alright Alright” Sahara Hotnights singer Maria looks like Dolf De Datsun. SCARY!

    Actresses are the new models... All the cute rockstars want one of their own. Fab and Drew, Chris and Gwyneth, everybody else and Winona.

    Still totally loving The Vines and the fact that they creeped into Muchmusic's Fromage 2002! They came in 4th for Cheeziest Group Video for “Outtathaway”. Ed The Sock was a brilliant commentator:

    "Either singer Craig Nicholls is stoned out of his gourd or he's having the longest orgasm on record (shot of Craig's contorted face). When I first saw this video I thought it was all an act - nobody could be that stoned and still stand up - but then I watched this interview..."

    MM: This is the third time you've been to Toronto this year...
    Craig: (interrupts) Right... (rubbing face, squinting)
    MM: Pretty major! Touring a lot...
    Craig: (interrupts) Ya... yeah we are... (trying to concentrate)
    MM: How are you feeling? I mean you're just going around and around and around...
    Craig: (interrupts) I'm really indecisive... My brain is expanding and going the other way as well so it's
    getting smaller and bigger at the same time so...

    (back to “Outtathaway” video)
    Ed The Sock: “Apparently I was wrong!”

  • Charlotte Church is such a dumb-ass. TORONTO IS IN CANADA. CANADA IS NOT AMERICA. Someone give that girl a clue... or a geography lesson... or even just a map.
  • The Vines kickstart the new year with some rock'n'roll drama... It seems the boys have cancelled their upcoming tour and been sent back to Oz for a time-out after Patrick and Craig had a brawl onstage… I'm not worried. I bet they've already kissed and made up!

  • HAPPY NEW YEAR! Here are some suggested new years resolutions for you...
    If you are a girl and you are skinny you should eat something.
    If you are a boy and you are pretty you should start a band.
    If you are a rockstar and you wanna make out with me please gimme a call.
