Mixtape: Jag älskar den här låten...
Sam Sparro in his new g;asses, via Twitter.
Did I mention that Sam Sparro responded to one of my Tweets? That's the weird thing about Twitter - you can just gab with all the greats (and not-as-greats).
I had my first big(ish) party ever last weekend and it was a roaring success. If you've been sitting around saying you need to fix up your place or plant some stuff, just decide to invite 30 people over and you'll get it all done.
I checked out the new Xenomania-backed "rock" band Vagabond. They have a new tune called Sweat Until The Morning (video) that's okay. The vocals are really affected and stagey, but the music is very smooth. Stick to what you know, Mr. Higgins.
Once again Perez takes the dirtiest route (re Dustin Lance Black's dickpics) and then twists it into some high and mighty about nude pics. He fancies himself an activist. PH is an attention-seeking jerk and I am SICK of pop stars kissing his ass. That means all of them, even the ones I love. If your kid were ugly, druggie or naked, he would cash in. Those who live by the sword...
Not even the Soul Seekerz can make the Jonas Brothers decent. Too bad they never did realize their album title, Lines Vines and Trying Times, is a cocaine reference.
Chastity Bono becoming a man. That fits into the didn't-see-it-coming-shoulda-seen-it-coming category, doesn't it?
Whatever happened to that La Roux creature? Did she get domestic with La Boyle?
James Banbury, who played a big part in Sarah Nixey's superb solo album, is back with an electronic band called dadahack. They've got a sleek tune out called Hello that you can hear on myspazz. I generally like tunes with vocals, but like Microfilm's songs, this is good for driving a sexy car.
Pixie Lott: She's like Sienna Miller + Natasha Bedingfeld visually (meaning dull) and the music is like a hybrid grown in a lab: Gaga + Winehouse. Catchy pablum
Patrick Wolf "arrested." Talented artist, obnoxious attention seeker or, as a fellow Tweeter Apollo commented (cleverly), a "rampant fanaticist." He tends to blame journalists.
D'luv and XO's new pop group has a debut single and we look so cute in the video, which is called Give It Up Turn It Loose.
I have never liked the Like A Prayer album cover. I'd have preferred this beautiful shot.
Early response to the a-Ha album: a disappointment. No Max Martin surprise or random songs that sound like CSNY. Just more midtempo mush. Torr, what do you think?
Kylie celebrates her 41st in Rome. She's on the right: http://bit.ly/129DDI - and this one too: http://bit.ly/7T8wI
Maxwell's new single Bad Habits is a meandering disappointment after the lush Pretty Wings.
A space cadet for years, maybe one day I'll be an astronaut. Don't like Just Jack's new single Doctor Doctor, but you should play another new one, Astronaut http://www.myspace.com/just...
Finally, geeks will inherit the Earth...
PS: I think the title of this post means "I love this song!" in reference to the clip above.
