The Rich Girls Are Weeping

18 September 2006

Trendspotting. Or, I can't write a big entry today -- busy.

Clang-a-lang-shabang-a-alang. The upsurgence of the postmodern girl(esque) group. Take that, Pipettes.

The Affair -- Andy (site)
The Long Blondes -- Last Night On Northgate Street (site)
The Noisettes -- Malice in Wonderland (site)

(Relatedly, we missed The Like @ The Beauty Bar last night because of the rain. Additionally, the last three posts at Angels Twenty have been about The Shangri-Las' "Out In The Streets" and various covers.)

Franz Ferdinand redux: Killers remixes that are infinitely better than the original tracks.

The Killers -- When You Were Young (The Lindbergh Palace Radio Edit)

OMG, because I LOVE YOU PEOPLE, here's another go for you:

The Killers -- When You Were Young (The Lindbergh Palace Radio Edit)

ETA: That's it. Someone else will post it soon, I'm sure. Keep your eyes peeled!

And: HOW COULD I FORGET? Pls. go see Shearwater as they wrap up their tour, 'kay? They were in NYC over the weekend -- I sincerely hope you were there, yo, whilst we were melting during the I Love You But I've Chosen Darkness show. Anyway, Shearwater is in Salisbury, Maryland tonight and Washington DC tomorrow. You'd better be there.

Speaking of that show at the Beauty Bar: Hey dude with the 'stache and the Onitsuka Tiger shirt (real specific, huh?), were you checking me out? Or the gorgeous girl behind me (I didn't see her, but I assume she was a looker, because most of the women there were...). Do tell!

Oh, right! We thought The Black Dahlia was great. Sure it was mudddled, but wasn't the book? And the whole sad affair in general? Seriously. I seem to have revised my opinion of Hilary Swank. And yes, Cindy's Dream Casting, the one-two punch of Josh Hartnett and Aaron Eckhart, worked extremely well. Additionaly, I think most of the bad reviews stem from the fact that no-one in our politically correct times is ready for the way people speak in James Ellroy's Los Angeles. Which is probably a lot how they spoke for reals in the 40's. Just sayin'.

Also: mp3 blogs get a Manolo. Ok, well, more like a dirty, foul-mouthed, and wonderful Gerard. Because if we can't laugh at ourselves and call a spade a spade -- what's the point, really?

And while we're on the topic: David Sylvian. Will. Always. Be. Hotter. Than. ALL. Of. You. Carry on!

dave sylvian. sigh. seriously, i'm not sure who is a greater personofication of settled, secure, serene masculinity: sylvian or bryan ferry. neither one ever cease to amaze me, but i think sylvian has always been a symbol of what i've spent the past few years looking for. that i think i've found it, minus ten of maturity, makes it all the more frustrating. god, he's amazing.

wouldn't a bryan "suave motherfucker" facsimile suffice in a pinch? that way this works out neatly: i get japan, you get roxy. i get prada, you get armani. i get experiemental, you get super pop and gay. or is that all too complicated?

well, that conversation with baby jesus was mostly meant to be from your pov, but yes! (;

i'll TOTALLY take the ferry-copy, you can have the sylvian-imile.

wait, wait, wait. does that mean we BOTH get men in italian-cut trousers, though? because i'm NOT sure i'm okay with that!

i'm going to sit here and hope that sylvian--as an archetype--continues to wear english cut trousers with a sassily exagerated break.

see you in 30.

The Killers is gone, baby, gone. What did that take, like five seconds? Can you re-up, please?

And I really like the original. Although I'm totally on the Killers-are-not-crap side of the fence. I believe its just me and Ultragrrl.

i'm still terribly gutted that gerard vs. bear isn't gerard cosloy. i was all excited, planning some headline like "sports fan and fancy dancer gerard cosloy of matador mocks gorilla versus bear's chris in endless display of music blog wankery." shucks. ;)

The Long Blondes have been around much longer than the Pipettes have.
