It's gotta be strange twist of fate
What a week it has been already. I've been busy, man. You know... fuckin' for tracks.
I promised a pic of Patrick Wolf's new hair and that is it above. Ironically he was saying that he finds it creepy when adults hold stuffed animals.
A recent visitor found my blog with this fetishistic Google search
I am lovin' the nicknames for this year's American Idol crop: Melinda is Sista Shrek, bless her, and bald Phil is Philferatu!
Slant has a piece on Madonna's Erotica album, revisiting it with a new review. I've had an idea for awhile of doing a week of posts as if it was a year like 1992 and this makes me think I should do that sometime.
The Killers have a new song, Move Away, that will be on the Spiderman soundtrack. Surely a Culture Club cover. But not.
The lack of Bjork leaks makes a point about record companies having more control than they exercise. That single is due out Tuesday and most people have not heard anything more than 15 seconds.
Jeff Buckley Best-Of-CD coming out in May
I am a wee bit umoved by My Beloved Mutya's new solo single, Real Girl. That Lenny Kravitz track was a high point of my hawt summer of '91, but it just seems a bit obvious/safe as a sample. The chorus doesn't even sound like it's in her key. Still, it's a likely hit.
Torr goes off on Robert Smith, who continues to wear that stupid hair and stupid makeup, bless his bitter heart.
I believed every April Fools joke out there (the Bjork, the Hype Machine one, all of it). I am such a sucka. The best one was Depeche Mode's elaborately done Dave Gahan restaurant. Sorry Varant, I would have gone there with you!
Out Monday in the UK: Lucky Soul's debut album with its gorge cover. Review coming soon.
Tonight at the gym I almost got off the treadmill, I was so not into it, but then I had an Olivia Newton John moment that woke me up: Xanadu, Twist of Fate and Livin' In Desperate Times. How brilliant! The middle song has aged quite well!
