I think I better write about this now, before I forget.. some of my favorite web searches for my site have been: “saves the day gay,” “i hate coldplay,” or my personal favorite…. “ryan adams emo.” WHO THE FUCK TYPED THAT IN? It doesn’t even make sense. Ryan Adams has been called a LOT of things (like “good” and “rock”) but EMO? That’s a new one, kids.

You know, I forgot I had this up.

Oh shit… Looks like it’s Valentine’s day at Town Hall with Rufus Wainwright for this year… Um. Is it a GOOD thing to go to a gayboy concert on V-day? Will it jinx the year? Also, Rufus on Leno on the 15th of January.

And god, don’t you hate that the Euro cheapens sex in Berlin? Oh wait..

Dude… this country is messed up. We have totally BIZARRE methods of mass propaganda… like showing Osma bin Laden in a suit and telling the Afghani people, “Usama bin Laden the Murder and Coward has abandoned you!”

And answering the all important question… Which David Bowie are you?

The Divine Comedy do an accoustic set at Joe’s Pub, Feb 12.

Boasting at least three of the crucial Brit pre-requisites – a shaggy fringe, blue denims and a bad hangover – he not only speaks so timidly that he often fails to register on my tape recorder, but is also the first (and last) person I’ve chatted to for any length of time who makes no mention of the atrocity at the World Trade Centre.

As Walsh struggles for things to say between bites from his bacon sandwich, I almost start wondering why we look to people whose essential aptitude is writing and performing melodies to provide us with the answers to big questions.

“I think it’s because Ash and Mogwai see us and Coldplay and Travis who say very little, and they’re thinking, ‘We do all this self-promotion, and these bands just come out saying, We’re nice lads from Wigan, listen to our songs. And they sell more records than us.’ The funny thing is, I don’t actually mind Mogwai. I’ve listened to their records and thought they’re pretty good.”

He laughs nervously at the suggestion that his songs rely on an unusual maturity of emotion. ‘It’s because I worry about everything too much. I might be happier if I went out and got drunk all the time, or if I’d gone to university, but I don’t think I’d have fitted in. I’m not very clever. This was the only thing I was any good at, really.’

Check out the new Turin Brakes gear.

I’m sorry… Rolling Stone is really weird… Alfie (and FALKNER!!!) gets on Michael Ansaldo’s list.. and JEEP is NUMBER ONE on Steven Chean’s list!??!

Oh yeah, I think I need to mention once again that “Answering Bell” by Ryan Adams sounds a helluvah lot like “The Weight” by The Band.
