In a few hours of television I heard Franz Ferdinand's "Jacqueline" in a commercial for Saab, Dodgy's "Good Enough" for Carlsberg beer, Reef's "Place Your Hands" in a car commercial and Elastica's "Connection" selling hair dye. Television suddenly became awesome.

  • Monday, October 18, 2004

    OK... Fresh start, new week, still exhausted from the last... The Libertines were brilliant on Friday (tho not nearly as fabulous as last time)... It's just not the same without our Pete... Carl lacks the passion he once had... Sigh... And, yes, it was I who bumrushed the stage during "I Get Along"... You love it.

  • "Underwear Goes Inside Your Pants" music video. From my Mariah on Fi'ah.
  • Jon Stewart for President!
  • Morrissey vs. Clay Aiken: Who’s Rock’s Greatest Celibate? I dont even know where to begin...
    1) Morrissey (our personal lord and savior) should never be compared so someone as trivial as Clay Aiken.
    2) Clay Aiken and "rock" should never be in the same sentence.
    3) Everyone knows I am Rock's Greatest Celibate. Bitches.
  • Speaking of which, Anthony Bogaert, a psychologist and human sexuality expert at Brock University in St. Catherines, Ontario (the university I'm proud to attend) conducted a study that found that 1 in 100 adults are asexual. I kinda wanna be that one percent just so I can get the t-shirt: "Asexuality: it's not just for amoebas anymore."
  • Friday, October 15, 2004

  • I just want to add something on a personal note... For someone who doesn't live in (or near) the city I spend quite a bit of my time there and there are some Toronto scenesters that are really starting to piss me off. Everyone knows who they are. Everyone hates them but pretends to like them. I think they are MEAN bitches and I'm sick of their scene-core monopoly. Why the fuck is everyone ass-kissing? It's fucking pathetic! The city is big enough for everyone so I suggest CERTAIN BITCHES drop the chip off their shoulder, play nice and STAY THE FUCK OUTTA MY PATH. Oh and another thing, if you fuck with my friends you fuck with me - and you really do NOT want to fuck with me. Kisses bitches.

And for the encore: There Is A Light That Never Goes Out. Sigh.
    I'm too happy to think or even try to articulate.

  • I've missed Pete Doherty... Babyshambles are the cover story on the NME this week. It sounds like a good issue cos there's lots of other goodies including pictures of Jack White smearing peanut butter on a naked man, a feature on the new breed of groupies, this Libertines poster, and my beloved Lauren Laverne talking “porn and health worries”. Sounds promising.
  • I didn't think it could get better than Ian Brown but Franz Ferdinand in Harry Potter as a band of ugly sisters sounds fucking awesome!
  • We saw our friend Laila (particularly her adorable blond mop of hair) featured prominently in Boy's fantastic new video for "Same Old Song" and it made us happy.
  • I don't like Gwen Stefani's new song very much but the video is fucking amazing!

  • Red Square was taken over by hippies on Friday night.
  • SWANKERS on Saturday night was absolutely shambolic due to me + alcohol = evil. Oh and I didn't make out with anyone (but I'll let you tell people we did). So... Yeah... Let us never speak of that night again...
  • The Killers tonight kids! I don't think I'll be after-partying because...
  • Friday, October 08, 2004

    HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO MY FELLOW CANADIANS! (And good luck avoiding the "Turkey Dump"!)
  • Countdown to Morrisey: 3 days. The Dears frontman Murray Lightburn wept for two hours after getting the call infroming him would meet his idol when his band opens for Morrissey in Toronto this Tuesday. I almost wanna weep with joy for him.
  • Chloe Sevigny: Professional Morrissey Groupie. How sad.
  • Carl Barat says recording the Libertines' second album with co-frontman Pete Doherty was "nasty". Geez, you'd never know by listening to the album...

  • Gwyneth Paltrow says doesn't wanna be a Yoko Ono. Who does Gwyneth? Really?
  • Oh God I hope this is a sick joke... Avril Lavigne wants to play Courtney Love in a film about Love's life. Courtney says, "Avril rocks and is pretty enough to play me!". No comment.
  • Sarah McLachlan actually does something really cool.
  • The Anatomy of the Away Message.
  • Thursday, October 07, 2004

  • Blur's new DVD Starshaped is out today! It follows early Blur from 1991 to 1994 across Europe with lots of candid footage and live performances. Worth checkin out.
  • From today's Popbitch: "Steve Mason, the guitarist from 90s Indie-rockers Gene is now a male model, spotted recently auditioning for a bank advert wearing only Speedos."

  • Pete Doherty was joined by new girlfriend, Death In Vegas' Dot Allison at a triumphant performance with his band Babyshambles last night.

  • The Delays do some ghostbusting.
  • I think Victoria Beckham just enjoys pregnancy because it allows her to actually eat for a change. We like it when Skelator eats. We like our Skelators with boobs...
  • ... On the other hand, Paris Hilton's extreme hottness inspired me to just eat raw baby carrots for lunch. (And yes all you Ana's and Mia's, I know baby carrots have more sugar=calories=fat then the big ones.)
  • I am not a fan of A Perfect Circle but I am a fan of anything anti-Bush... and their new video for "Counting Bodies Like Sheep to the Rhythm of the War Drums" definately qualifies as Anti-Bush. You can check it out on Windows Media LOW/HIGH or RealPlayer LOW/HIGH.
  • Speaking of which, Democrats are pretty.
  • I need a The Internet Is For Lovers tee.
  • What Weight Watchers recipe card from 1974 are you? I am Fish 'Tacos.' "You might think you're exotic and worldly-wise, but in reality you're just a bunch of crap on toast. Repeat after me: 'just because you put something in quotation marks doesn't make it so.' And 'taco' isn't Spanish for 'toast.'"
  • Wednesday, October 06, 2004

    I just had lunch with my Mom and Grandmother...
    I commented that we were 3 generations of groupies and we all had a laugh and my Grandma gave me a high-five. A HIGH FIVE. No jokes. Best ever.
    Grandma = Awesome. She expressed regret at not bringing her "Cripple Tag" when trying to find a parking space at the restaurant (keep in mind, she is in no way disabled). She discussed the cool Pirate patch she gets to wear after her eye surgury. She told me about her encounter with Sinatra and his "henchmen" again (cos I like that story). And of course she made tons of awesome politically-incorrect derogatory comments like, "Oh, you know so-and-so, he's one of those Europeans we don't like... (mimicks slitting neck)..." Oh man, my family rules so hard.

  • For the records has the 411 on the future of Toronto's brilliant C'est What?
  • OK so that stupid book He's Just Not That Into You: The No-Excuses Truth to Understanding Guys is #1 on the Globe & Mail's bestseller list, #2 on and #2 on NY Times... It's not all a loss because Jon stewart's America (The Book) is #1! (Stolen blantently from Duarte who we heart!)
  • I predict that Team America: World Police will be the greatest R-rated movie starring puppets ever made!
  • Who doesn't love a big British cock? (Safe for work!)

  • Ultragrrrl = the new Tony Wilson!?! But hotter obvs!
  • Everyone's buzzin about this new book He's Just Not That Into You: The No-Excuses Truth to Understanding Guys. OK, WHO THE FUCK needs a book for this? Listen ladies, save yourselves some cash and follow my free advice...

  • He's Just Not That Into You If...

    1. You want to see more of him than he wants to see you.
    2. You have to call him after a few days to see whats up and make plans.
    3. He doesn't adjust his schedule to make time for you.
    4. He's not constantly trying to get in your pants.
    5. You're worried that he's into you so much that you have to go out and buy a book on the subject.

  • Paris was booed offstage by clubbers in Miami! Assholes!
  • Her publicist has also responded (poorly) to claims Paris drops the N-bomb in her new sex tape but didn't deny actually the allegations. Paris, honey, ditch that bitch and call me.
  • If Paris Hilton lived in Southern Ontario she'd be at SWANKERS on Saturday night, dancing on tables and making out with me. Seriously.
  • Oh and before I go... Robbie Williams sees dead people! Hahahaha!
  • Monday, October 04, 2004

  • Yusuf Islam (aka Cat Stevens) in The Guardian on his FBI interagation last month.
  • Peter Doherty will be getting political next weekend as a speaker at the European Social Forum in London when he should be performing with The Libertines and en route to makeout with me in Toronto... But he's forgiven... Fighting racism is a good excuse...
