Champers and nibbly bits.

George Michael gets angry on the Beeb and plans to sue everybody in his path...Pitchfork (typically) slams the new Razorlight, which I love (though they hated the first CD too)...Time Magazine critics ponder Madonna's relevance in 2006 (and end up feeling okay with her)...Cokemachineglow does nice reviews of Lily Allen and The Pipettes...Streisand becomes an old lady - it had to happen eventually...IntoTheGroove posts the new Robyn / Basement Jaxx collab called "Hey You"...Perez Hilton gets wry on the tiresome subject of Lance Bass...xtuna looks decent for the first time in years...REM's new IRS best-of has a good tracklist, due 9/11/06...I am a bit meh on The Killers new album cover, posted at Chart Rigger, while MTV reviews the CD and calls it grandiose...Kofi's Hat has the new Edie Brickell track. Time stands still for Mrs. Paul Simon, but the track is not bad!...I agree that Midlake's easy-yet-dark new song "Roscoe" sounds like an outtake from Fleetwood Mac's Rumours. Just listen to the opening guitar line. This band is the Parker Posey of music blogs and Yellow Stereo has some more tracks...I have a treat for you pop whores tomorrow - my newest obsession whose new single is one of this year's pop masterpieces. Hints: she is very very blond and foreign... Brittle Lemon can probably guess who she is.

"Blonde and foreign"? That only half-describes me, so I'm hoping that it's Ms. B. Z.

you got that right. Expect an Xolondon Gift Basket in the mail (which is much better than Feces Gift Basket from "Six Feet Under" btw)
