I am having a heart attack of potential awesome!! I was looking in my site stats and saw someone had Googled “Keith Richards Gary Oldman” and while it’s obvious how they ended up here eventually, I decided Googled it myself anyway. Results? A myriad of links about GARY OLDMAN NARRATING THE AUDIOBOOK OF KEITH RICHARDS’ AUTOBIOGRAPHY. HEART. ATTACK. Amazon (.com and .ca) is currently listing the audio book readers as [...]
In a fit of obsession, I got last minute tickets to the second Paul McCartney show last night and went with my sister. The crowd last night was better than the one previous, but it’s only in going to back to back shows that you realise how scripted and rehearsed they are when he starts making all the same jokes in the same places or telling all the same moderately [...]
Um, best concert of my life? I THINK THAT’S A YES. More details to come when I finally find a set list online, but suffice it to say I promptly came home and ordered tickets for tomorrow night’s show because I need to experience this again. ETA Okay!!
In what can only be a clear case of temporary insanity, I just spent $275 on a ticket to the Paul McCartney concert in August. Holy crap. I decided last night that perhaps I should try to see him in concert. I am, after all, a lifelong fan of Los Beatles and I owe it to myself to see at least one of them in concert before the remaining members [...]
I’m unlikely to ever buy another Guitar Hero game now that I have Beatles Rock Band, but I’m super excited to see that Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock features The Rolling Stones’ “Stray Cat Blues”. OMG. This just solidifies my desire for someone to make Rolling Stones Rock Band. I mean Christ, if Aerosmith gets its own version of Guitar Hero, surely someone can make a Stones-specific game? ABKCO, the [...]
A friend of mine messaged me excitedly at lunch to tell me that of all the people who could have been casually visiting the cultural institution she works for yesterday, it was none other than KEITH RICHARDS who decided to show up. Keith Richards! People, I love this man. Take my love for Gary Oldman and multiply it by a thousand and you don’t even begin to come close to [...]
Right now on Twitter, the trending topics are as appears in the image on the right. I♥JonasBrothers? I♥Justin Bieber? I’m having a Billy Mack moment: But wouldn’t it be great if Number One this Christmas wasn’t some smug teenager, but an old ex-heroin addict searching for a comeback at any price? INDEED IT WOULD. For the love of all things holy, someone please help me make “I♥KeithRichards” a trending topic.
Keith Richards’ autobiography is apparently due out in the fall and Maclean’s says that his love of books [is] among the surprises in his forthcoming memoirs. Except anyone who knows anything about him remembers that the reason the man fractured several ribs several years ago was because he fell off the ladder while reaching for a book in his library. So, not surprising! Still, he has some nice thoughts on [...]
A) “So Lonely” by the Police is a fabulous and unfortunately simultaneously emotastic song. B) This is my favourite song by the Police, so I feel compelled to share my favourite songs by my Top Ten most listened to artists in the last six months, according to Last.fm. The Beatles — “Get Back” Bob Dylan — “Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right” The Hollies — “Jennifer Eccles” (As a boring [...]
As we get frightfully close to Valentine’s Day, I would like to share with you some amazingly romantic and thought provoking lyrics from one of my current favourite songs, “Elenore” by The Turtles. Elenore, gee I think you’re swell And you really do me well You’re my pride and joy, et cetera Yes, the “et cetera” is actually included in the song as a lyric. I love you so much [...]
