The Virgins: Possibly not so Virginal?

Several items must be addressed, in no particular order.

Item numero uno: Franz Ferdinand, but not as flasy, enough said on this topic.
Item numero dos: Predictable =’ s tacky + skanky first video.
Item numero tres: Stellar tour locations, you guys have great tour style already!
Item numero quarto: You make me want to disco hard all night
Item numero cinco: Will we see your shiny cute faces in Spin anytime soon?
Finalamente: BTW, you ‘virgins’ have good taste in strippers.

Also,I am not so hip on their lyrics but their sound sort of grows on you like a fungal infection. They almost seem like more of a manufactured bands then a happenstance garage band.

Specimen One:
“Lately I can see you’re scared
Cause we're growing up
Maybe if you changed your hair
You'd be good enough
Kids I used to know that died
Now they're not around
I wonder what they think of life
When they're looking down” Ferando Pando

I give it 2 out of 4 Kitty Paws!

Katy Perry: Cherry Flavored Saccharin Delite!

But is that a good thing?

Have you heard of her yet? What you haven’t heard about this new (some what ripped off)act? Well she is classically beautiful and she is crooning about kissing girls and liking it.

"I got so brave, drink in hand
Lost my discretion
It's not what, I'm used to
Just wanna try you on
I'm curious for you
Caught my attention
I kissed a girl and I liked it
The taste of her cherry chap stick" I Kissed A Girl

Words that come to mind to describe Katy Perry
Word 1: Cute
Word 2: Vintage
Word 3: Quirky
(not a great adjective list, sadly it gets worse)
Staying power? Not sure at this point. Katy may have potential to have a terrific follow up album or she may fizzle out like other young talents in Hollywood. I suppose only time will tell if she will pull or a Brittany or an Alanis.

She reminds me a lot of Lilly Allen, just minus the whole spoiled British princess part. Her sound is fresh and fun, just in time for cool summer evenings. I recommend all windows down, “I Kissed a Girl” blaring, wind blowing through hair and a cherry slush a la Sonic.

Her whole album is a little on the random side. She is acoustic, electro-industrial-dance. Katy's first release off of One of the Boys is “I kissed a girl” which is a fantastic electro-industrial-dance power ballad. However, the electro-dance theme does not persist through the rest of the songs on the album. “Thinking of You” is the classic girl strums guitar and reminisces about love lost, her vocals in this song are a mash of Abra Moore meets Shakira, seriously, hear it out.

I recommend:
Hot N Cold
I Kissed a Girl

...........And that Miss Perry seriously consider giving Dita Von Tease her idenity back.

Under the spell of Under the Black light

I am not really sure what about this album became so addictive… Jenny Lewis has the voice of a divine indie goddess and her three accompanying gentlemen strum and drum with their souls fully engaged. The lyrics and harmonies of this album are muy fantasico tambien.

My some of my favorite lyrics:
“Betrayal is a thorny crown
You wear it well
Just like a king
Revenge is the saddest thing
Honey, I’m afraid to say
You deserve everything”- Break’in Up

“I been whored and I been gored
I been less and I been more
But I never thought I’d see you
As I did today
Till the angels hung around” - The Angels Hung Around

“It is a lion's science fiction wings,
Just like a jolly dizzy for zero, one, three times
The size of the people that came before.
Me and you and what we'd do for money” - Dreamworld

My top songs on the album are:

Break’in Up , Silver Lining, The Angels Hung Around, and Under the Blacklight

Actually the whole album is great: preview?

I give it 4 out 4 kitty paws!

Juno, Alaska?

No Juno the flilm silly!

I actually loved this film, however; this love turned to like shortly after the Juno craze began. I was a big fan of Diablo Cody's writing. Her stripper novel. Anyhoot, I just think the film was too successful, too fast. There needs to be sufferage in the film industry!

Oh well I still lke the movie.

I will actually be traveling to Alaska in May. My little brother is getting married to a girl from Alaska...not Juno, Alaska. She is from a tiny town named...well I actually forgot the name.

I suppose this will be all for now.

Perfect Fit

The Velvet Underground. I know they aren’t new but they are new to me. They are like a second hand sweater. They are already broken in and splendid. You cozy up in it and feel like you are in a serene sanctuary.

Crimson and Clover – delish!


Spider solitary is the devils tit to which I suckle at. Pitiable
