Random Coldplay and Ronan Keating Gossip

Chris is such a dork. I wonder if he still fancies Hilary from JJ72. You know I wanted to shout out, “SING SOME NELLY FURTADO!” during the CP show, but I resisted. Remember fan zines? They still exist. Quote of the day from Mark of JJ: “I’m Mark from JJ72 and I play guitar and …

My Computer Is Holding My Digipics Hostage

The war between my camera, Nikon software, and my operating system rages on… after 6 hours of additional fighting, rebooting, crying, tech support, and batteries pooping out, I’ve come to the conclusion that I will never see Chris Martin’s singing mug on my computer.

JJ72’s Mark Greaney Doesn’t Really Care for Coldplay

Weird Quote of the Day

Ladies and Gentleman… the weirdest quote of the day come from The Independent in London, England: “Ben Knowles, editor of NME said: ‘Because of the size of the market in the US, it is more conducive to cutting-edge music [like the White Stripes and The Strokes]. Bands like Coldplay and Travis have been commercially successful …

The New York Times Can’t Tell the Strokes and the White Stripes Apart

*Snort* I still find this funny. The Times sucking it up big time. Oh the irony of the mixup!: The picture caption on Thursday with the Pop Life column, about bands that are bringing new energy to rock ‘n’ roll, referred incorrectly to a highly regarded recording by the White Stripes, which is in the …
