(I've tried patience)

Dum de dum de dum...

...today started out really bad and now appears to be fine, so, eh...that's good.
I woke up late this morning and when I went downstairs to apologise for missing breakfast I burst into tears. They were like "Um, this is hardly a reason to cry is it?" and I was like "Well, no, it isn't, is it?" and I didn't know why I was.
Then ten minutes later I realised it was because I'd had a really WARPED dream last night and I'd been very unhappy in it, but I never cry in my sleep so I think it was kind of substitute tears. If you see what I mean.
Steve Tyler from Aerosmith adopted me; but I was in love with him. Eeeeeeeeee. Rates high on the scale of eeeeness.


Sometimes someone says something or I hear something that just reminds me how fantastic my band are. It was Val again this time. Khanada. ~cries~ Just the most beautiful song.

Yesterday I was finishing the tapes for asrana - all done now, hon, just the lyrics to be written - and I suddenly realised I was in the middle of recording a song, and I didn't know what the heck it was! I'd been listening through the CD with it on and heard it and gone OH WOW, that's freakin' BRILLIANT, I HAVE to record it - but what it was? Not the foggiest.
So I came and looked it up and it's 'Never Say Never' by Romeo Void.

I hope someone knows it. It's fantastic.

What were you on?


How come you can write this, and yet come up with this?

Simon? Why did your band sing this? Or didn't they?

Oh, PRICELESS! Ahem. Val, you might find the first line of this funny. Extraordinary what people hear in lyrics, isn't it? ROFLMFAO

Oh, and Val? Can you explain this and this? 'Cause I sure as hell can't.

Thank you, thank you, sing365.com!

More pricelessness....

...this time from an uninformed journo-wannabe who needs a spellcheck, some Duran Duran liner notes and a kick in the head - not necessarily in that order.

On Duran Duran's first album :
</i>This is an great first effort by Duran Duran, combining a "Roxy Music like" sound and a nice synth overlay made for an exceptional debut. This album contains some real New Romantic classics on it, "Planet Earth," "Tel Aviv," "Is There Something I should know (I'm not sure I would call this song "New Romantic," It seems miss placed on the album.), and "Girls on Film." I have always felt that Duran Duran would have been better off without and drummer and let Nick Rhodes use a drum machine instead (becoming more technology based). They really out did themselves with "Tel Aviv," its a great instrumental and the song also reminds me of the David Bowie "LOW" album. A wounderful piece of work by an unapreciated band (critically).</i>

Nick Rhodes. Famously, Duran Duran's drummer. Uh-huh. Just look what he said about Medazzaland :

Finally Duran Duran did a mostly electronic album, this is the area where I think they would shine the most. But there still having some problems (aside from John Taylor leaving), the lyrical content is kinda lacking. Aside from the lyrics it is a great lisen, you do not have to be a Duranie to enjoy this album. The first track on Madazzaland is great, this is what the band needs to experiment with, more instrumentals and playing smaller venues (the seven and the ragged tiger days are over guys). I feel if they played clubs (when promoting this album and the ones to come) and focusing on the lyrical content this record could have been a great "underground" hit.

Duran Duran, famed for their underground appeal. Of course.

My favourite review by this bloke, though, is this one, of Pulp's really quite mediocre album "This Is Hardcore" :

An amazing follow up to the popular "Different Class" album, a bit darker than its predecessor and a bit better! Although different class is a brit-pop/glam classic I feel This Is Hardcore is slightly more sophisticated. If you are a Roxy Music fan you will enjoy this album, it reminds me at times of "For Your Pleasure." I'm really thankful that Pulp is not a mainstream band here in the states, just think of the offal people that would contaminate such an intellegent band and album.

How come he can spell "predecessor" and "sophisticated" and not "awful" and "intelligent"?
Pulp = The New Roxy Music. Who knew?
