  • Go Team Morrissey!
  • Good news for people who like bad music.
  • Chart hearts The Killers.
  • I am ridiculously excited about I ♥ Huckabees. If only for the ♥.
  • Finally! A book dedicated to just Given'r.

  • Monday, September 27, 2004

  • Last Friday we attended Event In The Tent (Wooo! Niagara Grape and Wine festival!) where we had the great pleasure of witnessing Oliver Black (like a female-fronted Datsuns) and Lowest of the Low (Ron Hawkins I heart you) before passing on The Trews (in favour of drinks and dancin' at Red Square). Good times.
  • Saturday I was sick so I went home to see the parental units and spend the whole glorious day in bed reading and becoming obsessed with America's next Top Model. Fuck off. I'm still awesome
  • And yesterday I was in Nerd Heaven at Word on the Street (which fuckin ruled) before putting the Manc back on a plane home to merry ol Engerland... And before I crawled into bed last night I was whisked off to see Shaun of the Dead which is totally BRILLIANT! I think it's the best movie I've seen all year - it's got everything you could ever want (including Morrissey)!
  • Sadly, I don't think I'm gonna be able to make it to Bloc Party's show at Revival tonight. My girlish dreams of making out with Simon White have been crushed.
  • The Music's sophomore album, Welcome To The North, entered the UK charts at #8 last week!
  • Stereogum has the hook-up for Gwen Stefani's first solo single "What You Waiting For?" which I found it slightly annoying at first listen.
  • Super Furry Animals classic ‘The Man Don’t Give A Fuck’ has a new video (directed by the band) featuring footage from the 1999 Glastonbury Festival... Choose your poison (i.e. your connection speed): Shite/OK/Awesome.
  • Goldie Lookin Chain are about to embark on their An Ounce Don’t Come For Free UK tour. "We are trying to recreate Robbie Williams ’ Knebworth gig, only indoors, and without the helicopter, and without Robbie Williams . We will attempt to recreate some of the electrical atmosphere RW created with such tracks as ‘Angels’ and ‘Let Me Entertain You’ and that other song that he did. We won’t be performing any of these songs, but we will entertain some people. And if that doesn’t work, Billy is fully prepared to drive a four inch flathead screw through his flaccid member. Behold, the 12th greatest show on Earth."
  • Liam Gallagher is a nice guy. Fuck that! We liked the rock-star asshole better!
  • Mischa Barton is easily our favourite Canadian bitch.
  • The wedding pics were bad enough... Seriously Britney, what the fuck?
  • Some Blogs Are Better Than Others is equal parts awesome and terrifying. It's times like these I'm glad no one knows about us!
  • Sunday, September 26, 2004

    Happy Birfday to the amazing Bryan Ferry and to our Lesh! We heart you!

    Friday, September 24, 2004

  • We can all look forward to a new Oasis album next Spring!
  • Leaked! U2's "Vertigo"!
  • Phil Spector's in major troubs.
  • Because you know you care about Britney's marriage license.
  • On October 11th, Electric Six will make their new song "Vibrator" available for download on their official site. That's mighty generous of them!
  • New Manics!!! Still not as awesome as old Manics but it's Manics nonetheless!
  • Travis is after my heart with today's edition of Free Music Friday featuring Futureheads, Kings of Convinience and a Sophie Ellis Bextor reference.
  • Scenestars is so best... We adore them... Air's "Playground Love" might be the greatest aphrodisiac since chocolate (or maybe alcohol in my case). It doesn't hurt that the song also recalls memories of that Levi's commercial starring a very wet, very hott Gael Garcia Bernal... Mmmm... And if you're feeling a bit naughty (and the slutty kind of fucked-up) you can also hit up Peaches "Fuck The Pain Away".
  • Miranda's a lesbian!?! WTF!?!
  • OMG! I hope you all watched the The O.C. special, "A Day In The Life", last night. Sigh. So much hottness. Novwember 4th can't come soon enough!
  • I'm asking for Confessions of an Heiress: A Tongue-in-Chic Peek Behind the Pose for my birthday. I hear from a very reputable source that it is "delightful" and I couldn't be more proud that our girl cracked the Top Ten on the New York Times Best-Seller list. Love her.
  • Students punished for having stripper pole in on-campus apartment... Just another reason I heart the student life.
  • Thursday, September 23, 2004

    I know... I know... I'm a bad blogger... Slap my wrist...
    I guess I've just been too busy these past 24 hours with school, my Mancunian houseguest, and going out/getting drunk/kissing gay men in what little spare time I have...
    If you're not on
    LiveJournal yet I suggest you join immediately (it's free) - if only so you can gain access to my exciting "Friends Only" entries.
    I shall return tomorrow afternoon to win back your love.

    Sex and the suburbs.
  • So my first ever DJ experience hosting a British night, SWANKERS, at Red Square was a great success in that lots of (good-looking) people experienced great tunes, cheap drinks, dancing and good times! Thanks for everyone who came out (especially the out-of-towners)! I heart any job that permits me to play my favourite songs, kiss boys and girls, drink, dance, and gets me laid. You made me smile! And thanks for the positive response my friends and for deeming me the hottest girl DJ ever (in St. Catharines anyway). Bless your hearts.

  • From Ambitious Outsiders (who got it from NME)
    Recently Robert Smith of the Cure made a comment on the Lollapalooza Festival cancellations addressing Morrissey in the process.
    Asked why he thought Curiosa had been such a success when the Morrissey-headlined Lollapalooza had to be cancelled due to poor ticket sales, Smith smirked,
    "Because Morrissey thinks he's a lot bigger over here than he actually is.."
    And the Cure? "I don't mean to be big-headed but we could go and play anywhere..."
  • As if it wasn't clear enough where WE stand in this great debate... Here's more reasons to join our winning team!
  • The Music Want You To Recognize Their Songs, Not Their Faces. We lurve them.
  • Stereogum has the Futureheads remix of The Streets "Fit But You Know It".
  • How much do I wish I was in NYC...
  • White Trash Socailite meets Goldie Lookin' Chain. Geeks out.
  • Don't be left in the dust! Quick! Jump on the bandwagon!
  • I once knew one of the filmmakers of this controversial new Nicole Kidman film... It's nice to know he's as fucked up as I thought he was.
  • Worst idea ever Hef. Really.
  • And yeah, I finally have Internet access in my new apartment... It only cost me my sanity - and $150 (thank you Nerds On Site) - but I did it!
  • It was our first day at school today. We wore a see-through shirt and subsequently made lots of new friends.
  • Tonight is the soon-to-be infamous White Trash theme party... I would just like to offer my thanks to Britney Spears - her recent fashion faux-pas are proving to be a great inspiration to me.
  • Noel Gallagher has no friends. I know a few people interested in filling the position.
  • Pete Doherty's gone home to his Mum and Dad's to get clean. He started with a bath. HA!
  • Speaking of... The new Libertines single will be What Became Of The Likely Lads?
  • The Datsuns are clever boys.
  • It's Free Music Friday over at 10:51 Toronto!
  • The Toronto International Film Festival has kicked off!
  • Earlier this week my friends Aaron, Sean and Shaan (the "BROCK JOGGERS CLUB") ran amuck around the Brock campus. I was fortunate enough to witness over one hour of the videotaped magic at a party on Tuesday and now you too can catch a glimpse of the genius HERE and HERE!
  • Wednesday, September 08, 2004

    So where's the party tonight?
  • Franz Ferdinand won the Mercury Music Prize!
  • The Music's "Freedom Fighters" e-card.

  • Rilo Kiley have a cute and quirky new website!
  • Paris and books... Together!
  • Because Wednesday is Hump Day and I would hope that "humping" would usually be preceeded by a "date" of sorts, I present to you The Pre-Date Pep Talk!
  • PS: Don't Fuck On My Car!
  • Tuesday, September 07, 2004

    I'm on my own again. I celebrated by putting the "I Only Brake For Morrissey" bumper sticker back on my car. Rock'n'roll.
  • If you know me at all you know one on my FAVOURITIST bands is theaudience. Today Scenestars graciously offers up one of their best tracks for your downloading pleasure... Ladies and gentlemen... A Pessimist Is Never Disappointed!
  • I don't suppose Paris' body comes with the jewerlery does it!?!
  • Slow news day... The Killers are afraid of flying.
  • Madonna was right - there is nothing better than classy shoes... "According to press rumours, Madonna is refusing to wear any shoes by Manolo Blahnik after the designer made derogatory comments about her acting abilities. Poor Madge will be suffering for her principles: she once said wearing them was better than sex." What a tragic loss for the material girl.
  • Because Nancy Sinatra is unfuckingbelievably yawesome. Yes, awesome with a "Y". Yawesome bitches.
  • OMG! I'm not the only one who launches "sandwich" attacks at people! Remember my song to the tune of Hot Hot Heat's "Bandages"?
  • Yeah Yeah Yeah's video for "Y Control".
  • Because I love this Canadian bitch!
  • Remember, Morrissey is for life - not just for Christmas!
  • Morrissey is love!

  • Plus One ruled on Friday. If you weren't there you suck.
  • This weekend we finally made it to the cinema. We saw Vanity Fair and found it very aesthetically pleasing (especially the Johnathan Rhys Meyers parts!) and a treat for someone like me who adored the book. We also saw trailers for a bunch of movies we wanna see such as Wimbledon (because Paul Bettany reminds me of my old guitar teacher I had a massive crush on), Alfie (because its Jude Law), and The Mototcycle Diaries (because the only thing better than Gael García Bernal is the story of Che Guevara)... Wow, I'm really boy crazy...
  • Congratulations to The Libertines for entering the UK album charts at #1! Just another reason Peter and Carl should kiss and make up!
  • Peter Doherty's in lurve!
  • OMG! The O.C. Season 2 preview!
  • Oh Britney... I'm completely speechless... At least she's proving to be an excellent source of inspiration for the White Trash party on Friday!
  • Bernard Butler and Brett Anderson's new album will be "special".
  • Andrew Kendall has gorgeous pictures of the Reading Festival!
  • Ambitious Outsiders has your hook-up for the new Interpol vid! We heart!
  • Check out the tits on the one on the left! Thanks Cecie!
  • Buy Noel Gallagher's Rolls Royce!
  • And speaking of Gallaghers, what's the deal with the Oasis DVD launch at The Mod Club this Thursday?
  • How to make a Versace salad!
  • And because I love stuff like this that reminds me being 12 years old again.
  • I'm moving today, (er, in a few hours actually) so updates over the next few days will be sporatic! And Happy O-Week my fellow students!
  • Thursday, September 02, 2004

    I came, I saw, I camped, I missed my computer...
  • Andrew Kendall has pictures of Pete Doherty's court appearance yesterday. Despite arriving in style, Pete was sentenced to four months in prison but the judge suspended the sentence for a year.
  • The making of The Killers music video for "All These Things That I've Done".
  • I just want you to know I reserve "Captian Bring Down and the Buzz Killers" as the name of my band.
  • Pictures of Morrissey at Carling!
  • The video for Ian Brown's new single "Keep What Ya Got" (featuring Noel Gallagher)! The King Monkey still looks stunning and when Ian and Noel hug my heart melts a little. You can watch it on Windows Media Player and Real Video too!
  • And just because I heart Beyonce.
  • It's all about Plus One tonight but the countdown is on bitches!
  • Wednesday, September 01, 2004

    Gone camping... See you bitches Friday at Plus One!
  • Peter Doherty is sentenced today.
  • The Von Bondies split!?!
  • The new issue of NME features Morrissey & Carlos. LOVES IT!
  • The Streets new video for ‘Blinded BY The Lights’ depicts Mike Skinner at the point of collapse after a night of pills, ooze and blowjobs... So its nothing new...
  • OMG! In my quest for rock'n'roll slash fic, I've discovered people exist that DON'T LIKE MORRISSEY! What's wrong with them? Is there a support group they can join to see the error in their ways?
  • Robbie Williams wants to out out electro CD's as his alter-ego "Pure Francis". WORSTEST IDEA EVER!
  • From Broken Language:
    federline (fed ur lein) intr.v.
    1) to come up
    2) to effect, in any fashion or manner, a "Vanilla Ice"
    3) to create the circumstance for future palimony payments
    4) did I mention "to COME THE FUCK UP"?
  • Keira Knightly doesn't think she has the boobs to be a Bond Girl. Who needs boobs when you're THAT beautiful?
  • Remember last September when my Grandma wanted to hook me up with Colin Ferrall who was hanging out in the "graveyard" built her backyard? Well he filmed a movie there. Here the trailer.
  • Support the Blackspot Sneaker. Props to my boy Isto for keeping me awares.
  • AHAHAHAH... This kid fucking rules at life! He's the real-life Napoleon Dynamite! Interpretive dance bitches!
