Speaking of music and bringing the LULZ

current mood: haaaaaaaaa

Iggy [Pop] and the Stooges Tour Rider - Apparently written by roadie Jos Grain, the Iggy rider is peppered with witty gems, tasteless asides, and typos.

Cauliflower/broccoli, cut into individual florets and thrown immediately into the garbage. I fucking hate that.

Yo, Beatles fans, how do you feel about this?

September 15th, 2006 (07:38 pm)

current mood: curious
current song: Not the Beatles!

The Martins — [[Sir George and]] 36-year-old Giles is also a producer, with a CV including Kate Bush and Elvis Costello — are here to put the final touches on an extraordinary new Beatles project, a so-called "mash-up" album called Love. The disc takes elements from more than 130 original Beatles tracks and meshes them together into a "panorama of sound," as Sir George puts it.

Giles hits "play" on the console in front of him, and out blasts the Beatles as you've never heard them. The basic track of "Lady Madonna," for example, has been superimposed onto drums and percussion from the White Album's "Why Don't We Do It in the Road?" and "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da." Somewhere in this stew is Eric Clapton's guitar solo from "While My Guitar Gently Weeps," plus other ambient noises and sounds. The effect is thrilling and contemporary. "We thought, if the Beatles were together today," says Sir George, explaining the record's ethos, "what would they be playing? That was always in our minds."

I'm a big fan of Phil Spector's "wall of sound," so panorama of sound is a step in the right direction. But the Beatles? Hmm...

Drive-by spamming

August 25th, 2006 (04:54 pm)

current mood: busy

Ever decide to better yourself by watching some Headline News (ha! ha!)? There you are, absorbing the latest national and world news, when eventually it's commercial time. And suddenly, the world's most annoying commercial comes on. It has two lines, consisting of, "HEAD ON! APPLY DIRECTLY TO YOUR FOREHEAD!" These two sentences are looped for what seems to be an eternity. Finally, you decide you just can't take it any more and just chuck your TV out the window. Aww, now you'll never know this week's entertainment news! And forget about watching those reruns of "Walker, Texas Ranger." (Yes, I know you watch it.) But at least you'll never have to listen to the Head On commercial again!

chocotaku has not only made this amazing icon, but I love the way it was presented.

Go Canes!

Congrats to the Carolina Hurricanes, your STANLEY CUP-winning team!

Although to be honest, how many of these players are actually from either North or South Carolina? :-P

And I'm not even a hockey fan, hence my using the Huskers icon. Tee hee!

And maybe people will speak positively about North Carolina in the media when it comes to sports now? Well, until more shocking revelations come out about the "Duke lacrosse scandal."

Hey, fellow Arieses, check this out!

From Susan Miller's Astrology for June:

There is one day I would like to flag for you as possibly problematic, and that's due Monday, June 5, plus or minus two days. On this day, Uranus will shoot a tough glance to the Sun, so be very careful to have your car tuned up and well maintained, lest you experience car trouble on your trip. Have your cell phone powered up, too. Be sure not to drive under the influence of alcohol either (not with Uranus in Pisces, which rules alcohol), and you should be fine. This is why we study astrology, to be mindful of what we need to do!

Also, there is a full moon on June 11th that will be in a tough angle to Uranus. :-(

I know at least six of you on my Flist speak French, so can one of you answer this?

May 26th, 2006 (02:58 pm)

current mood: curious

Isn't it redundant to say "a certain je ne sais quoi?" I thought the French phrase actually meant "a certain something."

And yes, I'm too lazy to Google. But not too lazy to ask my wonderful French-speaking comrades about this. *bats eyelashes*

Last evening we went dancing and I broke your leg.
Forgive me. I was clumsy and
I wanted you here in the wards, where I am the doctor!

Friends Cut

May 13th, 2006 (02:41 pm)

current mood: lethargic
current song: "Le Le Low," Hot Hot Heat

I did cull my Friends List somewhat today. It wasn't of people I don't like or something. Just people I rarely talk to or who rarely talk to me, accounts of people who have moved onto different accounts, and a feed or two. I'm glad I got to know everyone on my FList and I wish those who were cut much love and luck in life, though some of them will never see this message because they don't use their accounts. ♥, folks!
