Check out The Stripes at John Peel. Jack is getting weirder every day. Now I think he thinks he’s Alex in A Clockwork Orange. Oh A Clockwork Orange. O.
The Nintendo Game Cube. Otherwise known as “One Way To Become the Most Popular Person In Your Building.”
Hyperventilated today. I’ll explain further after Wed.
Julian Casablancas + Beck + DNA = Adam Green… who is ONLY 20 YEARS OF AGE! It’s a crime. Thou shalt not covet anti-folk stars younger than yourself.
I still love this interview Kimya did with Crud Magazine. Notice how she pulls a “White Stripe” and claims Fabrizio Moretti is her cousin.
Oh, if he only knew. Jules… way back in the day of Reading; “No, no, Iï¿½m glad we played on the Main Stage ï¿½ thereï¿½s a lot of people here and you donï¿½t want to see fans getting crushed. Thatï¿½s not very cool.”
In the John Stossel “Give Me A Break,” category… from Splendid. Can’t we think of more clever rumors?:
Were you near the stage when media darlings The Strokes played in Chicago? Did you notice the fan directly in front of the stage, taunting frontman Julian Casablancas by calling out requests for Kraftwerk’s “The Model”, Madonna’s “Vogue” and other runway-inspired tunes? And did you notice when that fan was oh-so-discreetly escorted backstage and beaten within an inch of his life? Most industry insiders know that Casablancas has an artistic temperament, and thinks that his punk rock image depends upon his being thought of as “just plain folk”, despite the fact that daddy John is a big and somewhat controversial name in the modeling business — but beating up fans? Puh-leeze, that went out with Sunny Day Real Estate…
You know what else? I figured out who Jack White’s voice reminds me of. The enjoyable Vince Vaughn. Both of them need to be on Ritalin. Bless.
Music of the Moment: “Screwdriver,” The White Stripes (John Peel Session); “Push It,” Stereo Total; “Since I Left You,” The Avalanches; “A Stroke of Genius,” Christina Aguilera vs. The Strokes, “Tie Up My Hands,” Starsailor.
I did some transcribing at work today. Chris Klein (you know, the one with the “man breasts”) is such a dummy. I can’t divulge what the contents of the interview were but all’s I’m saying is that he must really like cookies. It’s the only question he found interesting, saying “Oh… wow. That’s a great question. There are so many great cookies out there.” Yeah. Inside of head status: just as empty as we thought.
In other news… Betty hooked me up with a review of the Pittsburgh show written by her friend. Ol’ Johnny Boy is less than enthusiastic about The Ol’ Stroke-ies. Notice how it’s “all about the music” but not really.
But back to The Strokes- NME has something to say about the Detroit show– Mista Ken Taylor seems to be all about the mighty mighty poptones- ranking on The White Stripes in favor of exhaltation of the New York Gang of Five.
Ah Kylie. Queen of all things pop.
So much for this site being more sophisticated and refined. The pop culture maven in me is winning out. I just had to share the horror of these *NSYNC bobbing-head dolls.
And Eric, you win. The new Bjork is very good. I like it a lot.
I’m also listening to Tori. This is all very shocking, I know. I can hardly believe it myself. But let’s keep this in perspective.. Those *NSYNC dolls are far more upsetting.
I’m trying to get the word out about these dolls. I fear some of us might go into extreme shock if we aren’t forewarned about these things. I know I’m shaking.
And really… if this level of intelligence was just too much for you, I’m going to take it down a notch by re-posting this genius link again that was recommended by Sarwat. Never do your own swearing again! …. That is, unless you choose to. NOTE: Not to be used in a place where you’d be embarassed to have your computer scream, “F*ckin’ c*nt!”
