I want him to be my long distant lover…is that weird???
Really? No. REALLY?!
Singing along in an imitation voice to Wild Beasts must be THE MOST annoying trait my new neighbours have had to deal with….
I can’t wait for the K’Nex take of Drunk Girls
Russell Brand has written a surprisingly touching and intelligent post on the news and the nature of addiction: http://www.russellbrand.tv/2011/07/for-amy/
There are a fair few who have screamed out in some sort of rage/bemoaning about this hubbub surrounding her death (with those seemingly finding it hard to believe that people could be empathic towards more than one thing at once, as evident in the first comment, quite common). But there are plenty of others who have claimed the ‘great status’ with similar backgrounds John Belushi could have had a massive, Bill Murray-esque (Peter Venkman was created for him), film career before dying of a speedball after becoming a heavy drug user. Still, he is greatly regarded. Similar with River Phoenix, Chris Farley, Brad Renfro. And musicians like Jay Reatard, Joplin and even Jeff Buckley. History will set her as great because of her music, regardless of what happened around or after that…
As a longtime Videogum commentator (whenever I could think of something awesome to say), I am EXCITED about this and hope it brings a more active Stereogum comment community. I must say my music love slightly peaks above my TV/Movie love, so this could be interesting….
Also, I GOTTA WIN!
I think Mr Vernon has a soft spot for George Michael…
I know it was a Bonnie Raitt track first BUT George Michael did a relatively successful cover AND Gayngs have covered ‘One More Try’ from the 80s heartthrob/00s mess for Daytrotter before….
As a music fan with a mother who played George Michaels solo work to DEATH as a child, I can feel the love….
As a tiny bit of a Northern Soul Nerd (primarily through my father who was a proper Northern Soul Scenester back in the day and still DJs around the Midlands here in the UK), it is pretty lovely to see some of the dance moves here and there.
Had no idea the US Skins had utilised it though! The American one!? Not even the British one?!?!
Indie Twee Christmas Time? ALL SYSTEMS GO!!!!
