So, in some sort of ironic twist it turns out my rant the other day was rather popular. Cant entirely tell if that was cos of the mp3 I put on there, or if word did genuinely spread bout some cracker having a moan! But either way, people were clicking buttons out there.
You may have heard of the stencil graff artist Banksy, well Mark B sent me a link to a story on Banksy’s latest stunt – although I’m not sure why it took the BBC nearly three months to write about this… “Paris Hilton targeted in CD prank”. Basically Banksy altered the artwork for the new Paris Hilton CD and put his ‘doctored’ copies (500 of) in about 40 stores nationwide in England. Here’s the front cover (take note of the sticker)…
You may notice that Paris’ breasticles are on show, but more interestingly the sticker has been altered with some pretty amusing fake song titles. The inner parts of the sleeve have been totally altered too, you can see the pics at The Gossip Rag. Some people really slag off Banksy, but the way I look at it is that he is extremely creative and has a great sense of humour – no-one ever died as the result of a Banksy stunt – I’m glad for his contributions, makes life a little less boring. Plus Paris Hilton is a dickhead and her music sucks! God, and you thought I was gonna be adult about things!
In what has been labelled by some *cough*NME*cough* as “breaking news”, Pete Doherty (of continuous tabloid drug exposé fame… oh and some singing) has avoided a jail term. The judge has deferred sentencing till December as Pete has been a very good boy at rehab – watch this space… or not.
Whilst we’re on the subject of NME, they’ve launched a campaign to find out who threw the bottle at the lead singer of Panic! At The Disco. They want to hear from anyone that threw crap at My Chemical Romance too. Supposedly it is for an upcoming feature as throwing bottles at people is a serious issue. Oh, also if you’re an emo kid that’s ever got a slap for your poor taste in music or dress sense, then they want to speak to you too. Oh the humanity.
Mos Def got arrested at the MTV VMA awards the other night. Something to do with being disorderly whilst performing his track about Katrina, that slags off Bush and co. They were asked to wrap it up, then when they didn’t the police started arresting members of his entourage, and then him. He was released shortly afterwards, but I wish they’d have arrested the organisers of those awards instead – I watched bits of the show, it was crap. Highlight was that band OK Go prancing about on treadmills. Still, I’m sure everyone was eager to see who would win the Best Ringtone award, hmmm.
Enough of this trivial drivel (don’t try to say that when you’re drunk), allow me to share a track I think you
should might like…

Now, unlike the other day, I do actually know for sure that this Radiohead cover is by Damien Rice! I wonder how many more covers of Creep I could possibly find?
Before I forget, RIP Steve Irwin – a tragic loss.
