Some Bits & Pieces
In an attempt to not bore the pants off you, today I have some snippets of news and thoughts…
Gnarls Barkley have deleted Crazy as a single. So, you can no longer buy the track Crazy on it's own. They claim that fans could get tired of the track (shock horror!) and that could in turn mean people don't go to their shows. [INITIATE CYNIC MODE...] I think it is just a way to make sure that anybody that has yet to purchase Crazy (all 4 of them) go purchase the full album. Pretty clever thinking, I guess. As a side note; I didn't think too much of St. Elsewhere, a few cool tracks, but pretty average and very short.
Previous MySpace feature on this blog; Grudle Bay Riots, have put up a new track on their MySpace page. It's called Mr Master and is definitely a cracker. Nice acoustic samples alongside a solid beat and some sweet strumming. Good instrumental piece by those boys – check it out.
"To all those bastards who don't like my music – you're all adults, you can switch your radio off." Those were the words of the mighty James Blunt after receiving a truck load of
ornaments awards. So, some of those bastards are starting to. Essex FM in England will no longer be playing You're Beautiful and Goodbye My Lover. This was actually in response to research that suggested James Blunt was becoming tiresome. Tiresome? Yeah, just a little bit.
'Rapper' Fabolous was apparently a little upset that by the time he arrived on the MySpace scene there were already 19 pages claiming to be him. So he had the admin shut them all down. Not one to dwell on an annoyance(!), the gold mouthed fella even posted up a track to diss these so called "MySpace thugs" – classic lyrics include; "You shooting e-mails, you a Internet thug/ You a MySpace addict, caught on Internet drugs" and he added "I guess they were doing it for the chicks or whatever you can get out of it. They was probably getting all types of free shit. But I had to shut that shit down. You never know what niggas is doing with your name." Wow, real profound.
If you have any spare time left after reading the masses of text found on this blog, please take a look at my pal Linda's music blog; Eardrums Shall Fail. It's a top read.
That's about it really for today's bits & pieces, but if you have interesting nuggets of info to add, please feel free to leave a comment. The funnier the better, could do with a laugh!
