More Bits & Pieces
Another set of snippets for you today. Sorry bout that, but this new puppy is taking up 99.9% of my time right now, so I haven't been able to set aside time to write! Whilst I'm on the subject, if anyone has suggestions on what to call the dog, please let me know. My cousin suggested such gems as Megatron, but that one didn't go down too well with the rest of the fam! He's an 8-week-old Staffordshire Bull Terrier, check the pic to the left.
A previously unreleased track by Blockhead is currently available to listen to on his MySpace page. The track is a remix of something he made for Omega One and it's called Off The Horizon. Pretty laid back stuff, typical down-tempo Blockhead hip-hop – get it checked.
Australia's best kept secret, Lior, is coming to the end of his Australian tour. He plans to next do a couple of shows in the UK during June, and then he will go straight in to the studio to work on his second album. If you have no idea who Lior is, he's a singer/song-writer from Sydney. His sound is similar to Nick Drake and Damien Rice, but with a real Australian twang. Check out his MySpace page.
Eurovision winners Lordi are apparently furious after a Finnish magazine unmasked the lead singer by way of publishing a photo of him out-of-costume. Actually, reading in to the stories, it is the Finnish people that are furious – for want of a better phrase, the public have gone spastic about this outrage. The story gets funnier… it seems the people worked themselves up in to such a frenzy that they went from cancelling magazine subscriptions to actually staging a protest. However, only three protesters turned up to the planned protest. What went wrong? Did the protest clash with Big Brother?
I'll quickly dispel an internet rumour; Dave Grohl is not dead.
I'm not sure whether I should be laughing at this story or not, but apparently a French rapper named Monsieur R is facing a potential prison sentence for calling his country a slut and vowing to piss on Napoleon and Charles de Gaulle. He will either get three years prison or €75k fine for his creative lyrics. Listen up rappers; watch your fucking mouths!
I don't want to spend too much time discussing this one but Paris Hilton has already set to work making her debut album. It will apparently merge hip-hop, reggae, and pop sounds. One track will be a cover of Rod Stewart's Do You Think I'm Sexy? Right, I've had enough talking bout her now, everyone knows it's gonna be shit, but I thought it would be humorous to let you know this bizarre news – but it's ended up being more nauseating then humorous. I'm sorry.
That'll do for now. Don't forget to suggest some names for my dog!
