  • I LOVE Jarvis Cocker's video for "Don't Let Him Waste Your Time". SIMPLY AMAZING!
  • Arctic Monkeys are talking to Dizzee Rascal about a collaboration on their next album.
  • Because it's a slow news day... Some of my recent favourite YouTubes: here, here and here.
  • OK so there might not be a post tomorrow as I'm going last-minute Christmas shopping after work followed by Happy Mondays DJ night. Maybe I'll see you there.

    me and the nme

  • So the good news is that apparently I'm quoted in the NME Yearbook this year. The bad news is that I'm quoted blasting my beloved Morrissey and using lots of colourful language. Ah well!

  • Lady Sov thinks men should wear bras to, uh, protect themselves from stray bullets.
  • Chart's listed their Best Overlooked Albums in 2006.
  • Muse will be supporting My Chemical Romance on a Spring US tour. Uh, I'm not as diaappointed with this pairing as I probably should be.

  • Remember to watch Colbert VS The Decemberists tomorrow on The Colbert Report! I'm gonna have to drink lots of tea to stay up so late! ;)

    we don't care about no grammys

  • The Grammy nominees were announced today… but they’re all shit so I’m not going to bother.
  • Pete Doherty made his big fashion debut! (In a parking lot!)
  • Alex James has been hinting at a Blur reunion.
  • The Flaming Lips have had a street named after them in their hometown of Oklahoma City.
  • Fuck yeah! There’s an orchestral Super Furry Animals album on the way! (After their next “speaker blowing” album!)
  • Lily Allen wants to add a puppy to her tour rider. Because clearly she’s awesome.

    it's only natural

  • Not a whole lot of music news on the wire today…
  • The Guardian examines The Killers new video for “Bones” directed by Tim Burton. Sounds like a great video… shame the song is shit.
  • Audrey Hepburn’s dress from Breakfast at Tiffany’s was auctioned off for £410,000 (about $923,000 Cdn). Even I would argue that it’s worth every penny for such an iconic piece of fashion.
  • Hey boys there’s a Victoria’s Secret special on TV tonight… But you’re only allowed to watch for the purpose of getting gift ideas!
  • Also, wear your White Ribbon tomorrow boys! And if you don’t have a white ribbon you can just substitute by forever showing respect for the women in your life ;)
  • Reason #284674 Clubland scares me.
  • I’ll be back tomorrow with better dirt (hopefully)!
