Reasons I Liked Guitar Class Today

1. Learned the cords to Coldplay, “Yellow.”
2. Rufus Wainwright was made fun of.
3. Duncan Sheik was talked about.

Maybe next week I’ll bring up Ryan Adams… my teacher doesn’t know who the White Stripes are. Teacher all up in the folky singer-songwriter shit (see Rufus and Duncan). Will introduce to Stripes. Teacher run for cover.

Totally Dissed by the B&N Dude

I’m on the telephone with the Barnes and Nobel people to inquire about some books I need for class and I said, “I also have another query…” “Query? Oooookaay,” he says. I was just dissed by the B&N guy. It’s not my fault that my vocab is extensive… and honestly, I really have no idea why I said “query” instead of “question.” I’m a freak.

Sorry:

See what Care Bear you are.

Ditching the Brit, Big William style.

Oh, and if you haven’t seen the Lego-tastic White Stripes vid for “Fell In Love With A Girl” check it over at the Beeb radio.

We like old interview, to remind us what has happened and where we are now. SS-style.

The Right Way to Start Off Your College Career

One of my friends, who shall remain nameless started out his/her school semester in fine freshman fashion, sleeping through his/her first two classes of the day and completely missing them. Awww. Hahaha. Aw.

Hmm.. Combustication is like a trip down NYUK memory lane. Link from the Journal of Kire Nelad.

I just woke up like 40 minutes ago to the sight of Kylie Minogue. I’ll have to watch again at 2 so I can see the whole video. And it’s totally poo outside. Raining.

Holy mother of god, someone find me a ticket to the Starsailor/Charlatans show. They rocked D-town last night. While in Down Under news, Ryan Adams covers the White Stripes’ “Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground” on Tuesday at the Metro in Sydney. Ok.

Mollly Ringwald Sighting!

Dude. Where the hell was I when all this celeb-spotting happened? Not that I’d know what the guy from Fuel looks like… but Molly Ringwald! Skott at Dorktown got the goods… and was also at The D thingy. Were you one of those scary screaming boys that made me terrified for my safety?

Hey- this photobooth thing is pretty cool over at Michael’s site.

Today’s linkies were brought to you by Nick‘s link page.

Make some tough decisions about the Brit Awards. Power to the people!

All about Eddie

A little PSH moment for y’all (It’s totally been so long since I’ve seen the Hoffman… over a year!) courtesy of The Drifter.

Music of the moment: The Velvet Goldmine soundtrack (in honor of Ewan‘s hot eyeliner look… snatched from Eddie Izzard?… speaking of.. Which Eddie Are You? I am: Surreal Izzard: You talk bollocks all the time, and don’t care who knows it. You are King Pig from Hell, and talk to strange people on buses. Your underwear is conspiring against you, and if James Mason was here, he’d have something to say about it. And that something would be WEEEEEEEOOOOOOOOOOEEEEEEOOOOOOOOOOOO).

It’s a Berliner!

I enjoy Peter Stemmler. Sometimes he does portraits of famous people… other times it’s just naked ppl… curiously- usually chicks… but we also like Krispy Kreme.

Check out the freakin’ Soap Machine. So funny (and NOT office- friendly- be warned)!

Actually.. come to think of it, there are a LOT of naked cartoon women on that Quick Honey site. Jeez…

Speaking of doughnuts, I got pictures back from Berlin (um.. yeah.. almost a year later) and there was a picture of me eating a doughnut, and I’m trying to explain to Jen and Debbie that there must be some reason why I’m eating a doughnut, but I can’t remember why it’s suppose to be funny. Jen quietly peeps, “It doesn’t have anything to do with Eddie Izzard, does it?” I stop and think and scream out, “YES IT DOES! THAT IS A BERLINER!! AHAHHAHAHAHA!” So there is a picture of me eating a Berliner… you know… in Berlin. And that’s funny, you know?

Hawhawhaw… What? You don’t know the KennedyI am a doughnut” speech? Dear lord, get yourself some Eddie Izzard “Dressed to Kill.”< Indie update... for those who care, Le Tigre @ Warsaw (That’s in Brooklyn, kids!), just announced 2 nights – a benefit – Jan 24/25

Word up to the D-town hommies! Did I mention how I want that t-shirt Phil Hoffman wears as Lester Bangs in Almost Famous? I think I might have mentioned it… it says “DETROIT SUCKS.” I find it amusing. You know, ’cause its… Phil.. and AF and.. it’s funny.

Neil Marcus is at it again (that music freak!) this time it’s Blues and 60’s Rock (whatever that means) and The Stripes are on top! Take THAT, you elfin Icelandic crazy woman who charges 75 dollars for her shows!

Oh, finished About A Boy. I liked it. It’s not High Fidelity, but still enjoyable. I so don’t see Hugh Grant as Will (but YEAH Toni!). I love how you can finish a Hornby book in one day.
