The Strokes Are Buying Coney Island High?

I just got a craving for fried chicken. I’m listening to The Avalanches and craving chicken. Turkey will have to do.

I think you will all be happy to know my room is SO clean. It’s so lovely and neat and clean.

Whoah. Wait a minute. Was Stephen Daldry suppose to be gay? Now he’s not gay, but I didn’t know he was suppose to be gay… or did I? I have to go searching for those clips about his “surprise” friendship with dear Jamie Bell.

Oh, and by the way, someone needs to get me “Your Favorite London Sounds.” According to the LMC website, you need to send 12 GBP (for us overseas folk) to LMC Ltd, 3.6 Lafone House, 11-13 Leathermarket Street, London SE1 3HN. Perhaps I’ll just have to go pick it up myself when I go back to London… it’s sold at Rough Trade, Covent Garden; Smallfish, Hoxton; 323, Highgate; British Library, Euston; and Tate Modern, Bankside.

If you’re by Rough Trade in Convent Garden, go ahead- be trendy and check out Duffer, which is also on Shorts Garden.

Check out this interview with Albert… he talks about his problems with diarrhea, Halloween, and the Guru.

From Buddyhead: The Strokes are buying the old Coney Island High club and turning it into a private rehearsal space. All it takes is a phone call to daddy for some people.

I Can’t Believe I’m Saying This…Charlotte Church Rocks…and Other Random Stuff

From Indiana… it’s the Albert Hammond Jr. show!

The quizzes on Acting Straight weren’t nearly as funny or good as they should have been. I’ll stick to eMode and The Spark, thank you very much.

Dear lord. I never thought I’d say it, but Charlotte Church freaking ROCKS! Read:

The first to feel the force of Charlotte’s acid tongue was former mop-topper Beatle Sir Paul McCartney. Asked about the World Trade Center attacks, Charlie told Metro: “There was Paul McCartney saying: ‘I witnessed the crash’. Who cares? Thousands witnessed it.”

And poor old Britney Spears didn’t escape her remarks either. Although Charlotte admitted that she thought Britney was “great” she also said: “There is a contradiction in the way she says she is going to keep her virginity and then sings ‘I’m A Slave For U’.”

Congrats to Sigur Ros for winning the $10,000 prize for the worst named award ever, the US Shortlist Music Prize. “Mercury Prize” has such a better ring to it.

Oh, and who else thinks Ryan Adams broke his right hand while he while trying to dislodge the big stick up his … ahem?

Look, it’s Eddie. And Cate, lovely as always.

Kate and Sam Mendes. Yow!

Heathrow, I miss you so much. Go ahead, add a terminal… will they have to make up new tube stop maps to include T5?

Hurry up, you can still enter this contest to write a caption for everyone’s favorite Presidential turkey treat!

And is it me, or is Reuters getting racy with its practically hard-core porn pictures? Just ’cause it’s old doesn’t mean it’s still not porn!
