hanging in there

  • Hey kids, updates might be at night now since I've begun looking for full-time work.
  • Soooo I didn't really talk about Live 8... The Toronto show was shitty but I loved watching Greenday in Berlin and pretty much everything from the stage in London. Obviously I loved Pete and Elton but I was also very impressed with Coldplay and Richard Ashcroft mostly on account of how good the former Verve frontman is looking... Mmmm.
    But yeah, Pete Doherty was my highlight because even though he looked like he didn't even know what day it was, he still managed to put on a stunningly shambolic performance.
    Relive the magic bitches!!! Everyone loves our Pete! Elton John likes to kiss him and even Bob Geldof's been defending Pete in between trying to save the world. Loves it.
  • Oasis are still the funniest, most entertaining band ever.
  • Carl Barat talks about finding the confidence to go solo (read more over at the XFM site) and Pete Doherty's Babyshambles are heading out on a UK tour in support of "Fuck Forever". Brits please check it out so I can live vicariously through you!
  • The new Sufjan Stevens album 'Illinois' has been delayed due to issues with the cover art. The snobs over at Pitchfork gave it a glowing review!
  • Dodge has loads of Decemberists covers! Oh how I've missed him!
  • Mike at Take Your Medicine found this cool (educational) link on The Origin and Uses of British Swear Words. Hot.
  • Today's my Mommy's birthday and someone she works with gave her Funeral since she discovered Arcade Fire are her new favourite band when I was away. I'm so proud.
  • Ricky Gervais is just a man with a dream... a dream of skinhead gorillas riding the Tube. Amazing! Thanks for the link MikeD.
  • My friend found this hilarious clip of a guy with a Johnny Borrell (Razorlight) mask over his head and dancing to "Golden Touch". Amazing!
  • I sorta wish I was knocked up so I had an excuse to buy the adorable 'Lil Popbitch' tee.
  • Sometimes when I feel sad I look at Juanzo and he brings a smile to my face.

    Ned - Okay okay...

    Jody -

    Pete's straight now with Kate...

    But there was rumours he and former bandmate Carlos had a little something more than friendship... Same with a heroin addicted poet/musician he named The Wolfman.

    And yeah he used to work as a rent boy (male prostitute).
