Your argument is sound, nothing but sound

“I saw a hat being thrown from behind me and it hit Amy’s beehive.”

with 4 comments

In what reads like an orgasmic tale of being bit by a rabid dog, the man from the Glastonbury festival who was hit by Amy Winehouse describes the experience.

Hot Topic is going to be getting into the digital music realm. That almost seems like it’s been a long time coming. What bothers me more is this Project (RED) thing that sounds like a total con scheme. But hey, at least you get a “crackerjack surprise” once a week!

Whaaaat? Conor Oberst sits down to cry with talk to Marissa Moss at the Huffington Post. My personal issues with him and his music aside, at least he’s honest enough to admit this about The President Talks to God: “I don’t even know how much of a song it is–it’s more like a commercial to a point of view.”

Okay, I’m not joking: whichever judge is citing Joni Mitchell in their rulings should probably, like, stop.

Stereogum tells us new tune by The Verve has surfaced for those interested.

Oh dear. Peter Gabriel is going to cover Vampire Weekend on his forthcoming CD (apparently it’s been delayed about as long as GnR’s Chinese Democracy?). “I think playing with yourself makes you go blind after a while.” Hopefully someone will let the guys over in Vampire Weekend know that.

For anyone who is 13 who still gives a damn about Slipknot, apparently the band is going to release a new single tomorrow.

Sort of old news at this point, but for anyone who is curious, here’s part of Barack Obama’s iPod playlist. It is actually really true that a guy like Ludacris is a great businessman. I’m not sure why or how he came to be one, but he is. Besides, who can’t relate to this?

An ongoing feud between Jay-Z and Oasis took place regarding the Glastonbury festival. Noel Gallagher (that dude from Oasis, you know?) wuz all like, “No bitch, I ain’t takin’ no negro at mah music festival.” And Jay-Z was all, “I’m gonna play Wonderall so that everyone gets one more chance to hear how hard it sucks.” …Or something.

  2. Hey, I love Peter Gabriel. At least up through So, anyway. I dunno, though… eep.

    The funniest thing about that Amy Winehouse story is that she has a beehive.

    Also, you got somethin’ against Joni Mitchell? *angryface* Definitely better than quoting the Dead in a judicial ruling.

  3. Heh heh, I was just joking about the Peter Gabriel / Joni Mitchell thing. The Dead are so much worse than, well… pretty much anything. My mom is really into Peter Gabriel. XD When I went to see Ted Leo, he was in the progress of playing an entire Gabriel CD before he came on stage. S’yeah, I don’t, like, listen to him, but I don’t have an issue with him either. I’ve heard a lot of his stuff and it’s one of those things for me where it’s fine, but at the same time not something I could listen to a lot for some reason. Dunno why.

    And yeah, no real problems with Joni Mitchell either. For some reason I was confusing her with Joan Baez. And I really dislike Joan Baez.

  4. The only song I’ve heard all of more than once by old Pete is “Salsbury Hill.” It’s OK, just not something I get excited about.

    The only thing I think of when it comes to Joni Mitchell is the movie Love Actually. MY GIRLFRIEND MADE ME WATCH IT I SWEAR.
