Goodbye 2007. Goodbye Blogspot.

2008-01-01T14:31:01.321-10:00

I do be not good with words so I'll make my point using pictures.

Here's Monscooch on Blogspot:

That's the best I could do at summing it up. The address is www.monscooch.wordpress.com and it is purty. Update your blogrolls and RSS feed if you have time but first, you shall buy me some orange sherbet.

So that's three major losses in a row now. Hopefully, with Portsmouth coming up, we can make it four! Come on the pool! Wait, that's not right.

Amy Winehouse: 1983-20XX

2007-12-16T13:39:09.088-10:00

Here's proof that there's too many mutha uckers in the world finding their way onto our peaceful internet with the arrival of WhenWillAmyWinehouseDie.com. Sick punters sign a pre-condolence form and predict when Amy will go the way of Janis Joplin in order to win an iPod Touch. So far there are already 2400+ entries including these tasteless nuggets:
(image) -im am really sorry if i predicted your death
-Thanks for the iPod!
-you get what you deserve
-Merry Christmas World!
-She's got a little life left in her. I mean, she's got to suffer as much as she has made us suffer. Plus, isn't it the good who die young? Country music told me so, and country music is missing some teeth, too.
Here's her breakthrough single 'Rehab' featuring Hova himself, Jay-Z:

Coming Soon: Best Movie To Ever Feature A Drill Bra

Here's the trailer for Kataude mashin gâru (soon to be known as The Machine Girl to us western folk):

That's crazy ass shit there, son. It kinda reminds me of the time my left hand became dismembered in a ham and cheese sandwich related accident and I attached a portable vacuum to my elbow. It seemed like a good idea at the time but it's starting to get a bit annoying now. I do however get a lot of attention from the ladies- boo yeah.

T-Pain is a great big phoney

2007-12-16T13:39:03.146-10:00

(image) I've never been a fan of T-Pain. Most of his songs are weak, he talks like a fool and has no writing ability. Here he is performing without his digital voice, for once:

Here's proof that anyone can sing using T-Pain's digital aid:

Liverpool Watch: Marseille

It's hard to put into words how lucky the Kop are to qualify at the last minute but as five time Formula 1 World Champion Juan Manuel Fangio would say "Hello. I'm Juan Manuel Fangio".

A lesson in Liverpudlian accents

2007-12-12T13:32:41.508-10:00

Here's a clip from Walk Hard- the upcoming movie "from the guys who brought you Superbad and Knocked Up" (expect to see that on every comedy from here to Christmas 2009). It features Jack Black, Paul Rudd, Justin Long and Jason Shwartzman as Paul McCartney, John Lennon, George Harrison and Ringo Starr, respectively.

Watch the first 10 minutes here and in case you don't have a ZIP code try this: George Bush, 7-6-46, 20500.

I'm still undecided about spending nine precious Euro coins on this one film. The trailer looked alright, I suppose. The first 10 minutes of every comedy starts with the basic story prologue, making way for the jokes that come in a few minutes later, right? It was the same case with Titanic. 150 minutes of prologue and then all the sinking ship hilarity ensued.



Song Of The Week: The Amy Edition

2007-12-10T13:54:21.860-10:00

I'm going to steal a comment made on the (lazy) YouTube video because I can:"Gorgeous song. Probably the most beautiful thing I've ever heard. Video is kind of creepy though. It's like a tribute to a dead person. This woman is so incredibly talented, it's heartbreaking to see her in the state she's in. I hope this song is a huge hit, it deserves to be!".Those would probably be my sentiments as well. I'd prefer to hear this repeatedly over the Christmas period instead of The Pogues or whoever wins X Factor in the coming weeks.I'd actually like to see this get to number 1. It would be a huge morale boost to Amy (since her mum can't get through to her). Even though the accolades she keeps on getting, don't mean crap to her, maybe if she tops the Christmas charts, that might stop her going the same direction as Kurt Cobain and other troubled singers .It wouldn't be the first time a depressing song topped the UK Christmas charts:1986: Jackie Wilson - "Reet Petite"1987: Pet Shop Boys - "Always on My Mind"1988: Cliff Richard - "Mistletoe & Wine"1989: Band Aid II -" Do They Know It's Christmas?"1990: Cliff Richard - "Saviour's Day"1991: Queen - "Bohemian Rhapsody" / "These Are the Days of Our Lives"1992: Whitney Houston - "I Will Always Love You"1993: Mr Blobby - "Mr Blobby"1994: East 17 - "Stay Another Day"1995: Michael Jackson - "Earth Song"1996: Spice Girls - "2 Become 1"1997: Spice Girls - "Too Much"1998: Spice Girls - "Goodbye"1999: Westlife - "I Have A Dream" / "Seasons In The Sun"2000: Bob The Builder - "Can We Fix It?"2001: Robbie Williams & Nicole Kidman - "Somethin' Stupid"2002: Girls Aloud - "Sound Of The Underground"2003: Michael Andrews featuring Gary Jules - "Mad World"2004: Band Aid 20 - "Do They Know It's Christmas?"2005: Shayne Ward - "That's My Goal"2006: Leona Lewis - "A Moment Like This"See? How many of those songs aren't depressing? A more complete list can be found here on Stereogum.[...]



The 8th Of December

2007-12-10T13:50:31.840-10:00

(image) ... is special to me for a few reasons. To start, it's the anniversary of John Lennon's death so I go about listening to as much Lennon music as I can in one day. Today is also the official start of Christmas (the previous five plus weeks of festive decorations don't count) and is also considered one of the biggest shopping days before the mad Christmas Eve rush. To combine those two celebratory reasons of mine, here's John Lennon with "Happy Xmas (War Is Over)":

Celebrating their birthdays today are two greats; Sammy Davis Jr. with one of my all time favourite songs- "Mr Bojangles":

Sinead O'Conner was born today too. This song, written by everybody's favourite eccentric artist formerly known as a symbol, Prince, is the beautiful Nothing Compares 2 U:

Some say it's one of the best music videos ever made. I think it's quite boring. It could've used a car chase or some explosions at least.

Viral Videos of the Week

2007-12-02T13:14:26.216-10:00

"I thought Europe was a country?". In her defence, she (Kellie Pickler) is very cute. Until she starts talking that is. Then it's just a case of wanting to take a hammer to the head.Two Cats Talking:Two Cats Talking (and what they're really saying):What Would Jesus Buy? Relevant, especially in this time of "good will" (i.e. crazed shopping). Here's the synopsis: Reverend Billy and the Church of Stop Shopping Gospel Choir are on a cross-country mission to save Christmas from the Shopocalypse (the end of humankind from consumerism, over-consumption and the fires of eternal debt). It comes from Morgan Spurlock of Super Size Me fame. His new project sounds interesting too. Here's the WWJB trailer: A classy marraige proposal via the cast of Scrubs:This clip could easily be a deleted scene from Hostel- Part II (If you were insane, that is):It's called Chocolade Haas. Some of the comments on the video include:-Laaa..laaa..laaalalala-stomachable video!dear rabbit we'll always love you.rest in peace!-you a fuckn idiot!what the hell you need to post this shitting video?i'v been hungry just a second ago.. now i'm depressed and a big angry.i'm stomachached, i need to vomit and cry.-If it was a block of chocolate you wouldnt feel like that. I love how the pieces in the background are all the same colour and texture .-I think the most interesting study is not the video, but rather, the wide range of feelings and emotions it caused in each of us...[...]

I sure as flip will. Zach Snyder (director of 300) has just uploaded the following photos up to the Watchmen site to reassure fans of the graphic novel that he is not going to mess it up. These photos could not be more perfect:

The Key To Reserva

2007-12-01T12:52:15.889-10:00

"But it has to look, it has to be the way he would made the picture then, only making it now, but the way he would make it then. If he was alive now making this now, he would make it now as if he made it back then."
-Martin Scorsese on preserving Hitchcock's 'The Key to Reserva'.

I can't embed the video (yet) but if you enjoy the art of film, you should check out Martin Scorsese's adaptating a Hitchcock script that was never filmed. It may be viral advertising but it's viral advertising at it's best.

Evel Knievel dies at the age of 69

2007-12-01T11:43:41.446-10:00

(image) According to the ever-reliable Wikipedia entry on Evel, "he was assassinated by ninjas under the command of hip-hop musician Kanye West. Rest in peace". For some reason, after some crafty edited, the story now reads that "he had been ill for years, suffering from hepatitis C, as well as diabetes and idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, an incurable condition that scarred his lungs". The full story is here on ABC-news.com.

Here's Evel Knievel doing what he did best at Caesar's Palace:
