sunburnt in springtime

  • Arctic Monkeys outdrink Noel Gallagher. Seriously? I'm disappointed. Liam would have never let that happen.
  • Chris Martin whores himself out for another charity.
  • Elbow frontman Guy Garvey wants Radiohead to sign a deal with his record label. I guess he figures it's worth a shot.
  • Razorlight think they're "better than Arctic Monkeys" and I have to agree.
  • The Raconteurs have announced some North American tour dates. The only Canadian date (thus far) is in Vancouver.
  • The new video from The Streets for "Never Went To Church". It's a sad one!
  • The first five albums from Jesus and the Mary Chain are being re-released this July.
  • Torr has new singles from Keane and Cooper Temple Clause.
  • Snoop Dogg's been banned from the UK which I don't think is very fair...
  • Paul McCartney's seperating from his wife and they're blaming the media for their split. Riiight.
  • The Cannes Film Festival will kick off tonight with the premiere of The Da Vinci Code which is a film I normally would avoid for various reasons (Tom Hanks, religious content, buzz, etc) but, I confess, I'm actually looking forward to seeing it thanks to the combined sexiness of Audrey Tautou and Paul Bettany. Sorry for rambling on there for a minute.
  • Damnit! We've lost Keira Knightley to Kabbalah! Nooo!
  • Season finale of America's Next Top Model tonight. I'm cheering for Joanie or Danielle - pretty much anyone except that bitch Jade.
  • I'm making a new workout playlist for my iPod. Anyone have any suggestions?

    If the Garvey/Skinny Dog Records + Radiohead union become a reality, i think my head would soooo explode!

    Dunno about you, but "Where the streets have no name" (original studio off the Joshua Tree or even better the live from Mexico - Pop Mart tour version), has always made me strip to my tiddy whities and run around the block. So i guess it would work as a work-out song.

    (Ok, i haven't done it yet, but it makes me want to do it.)

    Well, we may have lost Keira, but we've regained Britney, who says she does not study Kabbalah anymore because her baby is now her religion.

    As for workout music, mix in some Tralala (you can find them at the end of my friends list on MySpace) with your Pipettes, and you should be set!

    Janice - Ahahah, it would be a pretty cool partnership!

    Jon - Wow! I didn't realize you had a blog, let alone podcasts! That's great! Thanks!

    Gilberto - Ahahahah, I'll give in a whirl. I just hope I can keep my clothes on.

    Tom D - You have very similar taste in music to a friend of mind. So smiliar its scary! Aha! Thanks for the list!

    Thierry - Yeah, I saw that but I'd take Keira over Britney ANYDAY. I'll go off in search of Tralala right now.

    Rebecca - Ahahah, well clearly you're a contender in rock'n'roll drinking battles!
