I wish I hadn't watched two episodes of this. Its a pretty horrible game of spot the gay guy. One boy has a hairdryer, this was a very big deal and apparently conclusive proof. They do all sit around on haystacks on the elimination bit though, and there's a Chad.

Oh to be in America on St Patrick's day. Don't forget I am part Irish as I've been there on holiday. Twice. Went out to Fibber McGees, a local Oirish pub last night with my hommies which was fun. Got to see everyone in green with the comedy hats on. We listened to traditional music of a funk band playing covers of famous Oirish artists like Prince, Dave Mathew's Band and Nelly. I was quite impressed by their cover of Dave Mathew's Number 41 which included a sax solo which was long enough for three of us to go off to the loo, wait in line and then come back out again and the guy was still going for it. Marvellous. Also was very impressed by the ladies in the loo who were teaching each other the secrets of big hair and a lady was being shown how to backcombe for the biggest effect. What a super place.

What are they trying to say. Everyone knows 1976 was a fantastic and historic year when one of the world's true greats was born. It should indeed be celebrated. Specially March 1976.
Was 1976 all it's cracked up to be?

The BT sponsored movie quiz on thier site is cool. You have to race against the clock to get 19 questions right, if you get one wrong you go back to the start. Took me a few goes to get to the end but managed it in 49.65 seconds. You need to get about 14 secs to make the leader board. Empire Online.
Never mind the quiz has gone now.

Listen to new Wilco stuff. I think you have to get quicktime to hear it though. As a thank you for your support over the past year(s), WILCO are also offering a six song EP for fans who own “Yankee Hotel Foxtrot”. W I L C O
I expect this has been big news all over. The five peice to become a fourpice and no doubt split soon. They're no Boyzone, and they were no take that.

A news story brought to my attention by Luke
. Serious musician and highly respected artist Jamelia has questioned the suitability of Peter Andre's Mysterious Girl as chart topping material. Having seen Mr Andre and his pecs live on several occasions I can confirm the song "mysterious girl" is marvellous. I still remember how it goes whereas I couldn't name a single Jamelia tune. But what do I know? I'm not a "real music head" afterall.

I got to watch the Oscars
last night. Being on the East coast it didn’t finish till midnight for me. 3 HOURS!!! and an hour before that of the red carpet stuff with Joan Rivers on E!
Quite exciting in bits, shame we had to sit through all them rubbish songs up for awards. Jamie Lee Curtis's cleavage was most eye catching and Sandra Bullock's Wedding Cake dress was intriguing. Couldn't quite distract from the rubbish job her and John Travolta did on their comedy skit while presenting. Always good to see Phil Collins though.
