Not much going on today - still unmotivated I'm sorry to say. Must try and generate a bit of traffic for this useless blog. Some keywords could be useful - naked Brittney perhaps??

This Lee Hazlewood guy is still around. I sent him a blank email by mistake. Must check out his music....and it's good to see he's listening to the new Lambchop album these days too.
Thanks to Instapundit for this piece. An interesting comment on the neutrality of European states.
I wen't to seet the movie "Don't Say a Word" last night. I originally hoped to see Ocean's 11 but it was booked out. Anyway I was so tired I almost fell asleep through the film. It wasn't bad though - quite a well plotted and paced thriller. The notion of the girl leaving her doll in the grave and remembering the number was a bit spurious though. Still - there would be no drama without dramatic licence. I must check out where I've seen that girl before - I thought she may have been in 'Grosse Point' - with dark hair??.

Hmm - might go and see Josh Ritter live next Monday night - will check out his music first.
I've been listening to the new Lambchop album -Is A Woman today at work while wading through the hundred emails waiting for me. It's quite different to Nixon - more reminiscent of 'How I quit smoking". Takes a bit of work on first listens - which is always a good thing. I think its great though - current fave track is 'Flick'. More later...
Back today - still in one piece but struggling...

Fantastic! This briliant short has been nominated for an Oscar. This is where the real Irish movie making talent is. (Whats more, one of the other animated shorts on the shrtlist is also an Irish production). Best of luck to Ruairi! Download fiftypercentgrey here.

Now downloading the remaining tracks from the BMRC album. See how the DVD player works with MP3's.

On a related note I dug out Psycho Candy for a listen at the weekend. I've never been able to get into this 100% - I much prefer Darklands and their later albums.

Oh dear - for only the third time in my like I walked in my sleep last night. Nearly ended up in my flatmates room. I opened her door but stopped then. Fuck but it could have been embarassing. It was some kind of dream I was having (related to weblogging I think). hopefully she didn't wake. If she did I'll have questions to answer....

Feckin' work....this neo-industrial society is the pits..Smoke Signals
Impressed with the version of Gin and Juice by the Gourds - heres the lyrics (by Snoop Doggy Dogg)
Intro: Dre
*man pissing*
Heah hah hah!
I'm serious nigga one of y'all niggaz got this ass motherfuckin up
Aiy baby, aiy baby... aiy baby get some bubblegum in this motherfucker
Steady long, steady long nigga
Verse One: Snoop

With so much drama in the L-B-C
It's kinda hard bein Snoop D-O-double-G
But I, somehow, some way
Keep comin up with funky ass shit like every single day
May I, kick a little something for the G's (yeah)
and, make a few ends as (yeah!) I breeze, through
Two in the mornin and the party's still jumpin
cause my momma ain't home
I got bitches in the living room gettin it on
and, they ain't leavin til six in the mornin (six in the mornin)
So what you wanna do, sheeeit
I got a pocket full of rubbers and my homeboys do too
So turn off the lights and close the doors
But (but what) we don't love them hoes, yeah!
So we gonna smoke a ounce to this
G's up, hoes down, while you motherfuckers bounce to this
Chorus: repeat 2X
Rollin down the street, smokin indo, sippin on gin and juice
Laid back [with my mind on my money and my money on my mind]
Verse Two:
Now, that, I got me some Seagram's gin
Everybody got they cups, but they ain't chipped in
Now this types of shit, happens all the time
You got to get yours but fool I gotta get mine
Everything is fine when you listenin to the D-O-G
I got the cultivating music that be captivating he
who listens, to the words that I speak
As I take me a drink to the middle of the street
and get to mackin to this bitch named Sadie (Sadie?)
She used to be the homeboy's lady (Oh, that bitch)
Eighty degrees, when I tell that bitch please
Raise up off these N-U-T's, cause you gets none of these
At ease, as I mob with the Dogg Pound, feel the breeze
beeeitch, I'm just
Verse Three:
Later on that day
My homey Dr. Dre came through with a gang of Tanqueray
And a fat ass J, of some bubonic chronic that made me choke
Shit, this ain't no joke
I had to back up off of it and sit my cup down
Tanqueray and chronic, yeah I'm fucked up now
But it ain't no stoppin, I'm still poppin
Dre got some bitches from the city of Compton
To serve me, not with a cherry on top
Cause when I bust my nut, I'm raisin up off the cot
Don't get upset girl, that's just how it goes
I don't love you hoes, I'm out the do'
And I'll be

Rollin down the street, smokin indo, sippin on gin and juice (beeotch!!)
Laid back [with my mind on my money and my money on my mind]
Rollin down the street, smokin indo, sippin on gin and juice (beeotch!!)
Laid back [with my mind on my money and my money on my mind]
