This must be the place Blog

Had to post this:

Had posted the MGMT cover version below which on second viewing, is actually slightly dodge and posted when I was in my ‘oh-my-god-MGMT-are-the-bestest-band-ever’ phase. Yikes.

This is the problem with blogs – they keep all your dodgy music moments on file for all the interwebs to see. Forevers like. So I couldn’t let me last post be that video. Not that this is my last post either, but ya know what I mean.



Can’t get it out of my head

It’s probably to do with my burgeoning Allison Iraheta obsession (17 year old currently rocking it out on American Idol) but lately, I cannot get this song out of my head:

Heart – Alone

I think it may have to be my new karaoke song. Sorry people.

EDIT: This happens to me EVERYTIME. Why do my videos always disappear as soon as I post them? Le sigh. Anyways, it *should* be up there now.



Love her, love her please

I’m not usually a massive American Idol fan.  I’ve always found the young hopeful’s quests for stardom a bit too desperate sometimes and it lacks the humour of X Factor (apparent from the required ‘whacky’ auditionees at the beginning of every season – they’re even more ‘whacky’ in the States o’course).

But this year, I’ve been kind of following it through the repeats on TV3 on lazy Saturdays and one lucky afternoon, I flicked on to this girl:

She’s sixteen years of age. Six.Teen. Her voice is pure gorgeous and as the classic line goes, she could sing the phonebook. I think, bar Leona Lewis maybe, she’s the only ever person I’ve seen on a reality programme like this, that I’ve actually wanted to buy their album. I want her album now. Right now.

Simon, mind that girl please, she’s a talented ‘un!

EDIT: YouTube and WordPress are not my friends 😦 I posted this ages ago, sauntered off happily and the video never published. Boourns. Fingers crossed it’s up now!



Just what I need on a Monday morning

A 30 second video of cute babies dubbed over with hilarity:

“Take these broken wings, and learn to fly again….”

And congrats to all the winners at the Irish Blog Awards! Hope everyone had a faboolous night and by the looks of it on Twitter, it seems so! Good on ye.

What a mournful song title 😦

Kanye West’s new vidja – Welcome to Heartbreak:

It’s trippy, man.

K so it’s Friday night and I’m staying in ’cause I’m po’ – don’t judge me. There’s feck all on the tellybox (well until Michael McIntrye delights us all on Jonathon Ross) so right now, I am entertaining myself with a few tunes on the old school PC down in the back room. Man, it’s cold down here; thank God for this vodka.

Anyhoo, it’s probably at least 3 years since this old piece of poo PC was turned on, and hitting shuffle on windows media player is throwing me up some rather enjoyable ‘classics’.

Strolling down memory lane:

All Saints – Never Ever

The Blow Monkeys – You Don’t Own Me (sometime in the 80’s – google not obeying)
By the way, I am so so tempted to link to the Bette Midler/Goldie Hawn/ Diane Keaton version from First Wives Club ……. that I will:

Amerie – 1 Thing (2005)
embedding disabled – (ballsack)

Audio Bullys – We Don’t Care (2003)

Outkast ft Killer Mike – The Whole World (2002)

The Pogues – Rainy Night in Soho – good choice shuffle; GOOD CHOICE! – (1991)

Deepest Blue – Deepest Blue (2004)

Right, I have to stop there before I fill this entire blog with Youtube vidjas. I could go on all night, but I actually started this post 10 hours ago (this computer is so fucking slow) and I have to watch Michael McIntyre on Jonathon Wossy.

Happy Friday Y’all!

Snow. SNOW! Yaaaaaaaay!

I don’t know why snow makes me so ridiculously excited but it does. I probably haven’t seen proper snow since the 90’s and it makes me feel like I’m nine years old again. A nine year old with a desk job however.

It’s a nice start to the week though, especially after such a fun-packed weekend. Went to see the Bodies Exhibition on Saturday which was very interesting indeed. I couldn’t quite take in that I was looking at actual corpses – they looked almost plastic to me – but it was fascitinating stuff really. The place was a bit too jammed for my liking though so by the end my inner grump won out so I left and headed up to the coffee area ‘up inside upstairs’ (seriously, the sign says that on one of the main doors – how Irish is that?!). Mr Darragh Doyle has a great post on it here with a lot more detail. The exhibition that is, not the weird coffee sign.

Yesterday morning, myself and himself watched Michael McIntyre: Live at the Apollo. The man is a legend. An absolute legend. I have never laughed so much so early on a Sunday morning. Well apart from Christmas Mass (dodgy folk group ‘singing’).

Lookee here – it’s so true!

Finally, yesterday evening, we managed to get tickets to Slumdog Millionaire in Dundrum. It’s been sold out there every night for aaaages. Unless you got up at four in the morning to book them, you’d be seated practically in the screen but yesterday, we managed to get the last two decent seats. And it was so worth the wait. What a gorgeous, gorgeous film. I am unashamedly jumping on the Slumdog fan bandwagon – I loved it. It’s not perfect of course, but nothing beats walking out of a film with a smile on your face like that.

Right, I’m off to make snow angels. I wish!



This week I’ve been mostly working out to…

Ok, I hate the term workout, but it seems to summarize the actual activity of flailing my arms and legs about wildly for 40 minutes and/or ’til my face turns purple.  I’m kidding, really I look like the girls in Eric Prydz’s Call on Me video. I even have the matching leg warmers to prove it.  Maybe. 

Anyhoo, here’s a list of what I have been mostly flailing about this week, just to prove what quirky messed up taste in music I have.  Like you didn’t know already.

 
1. Britney Spears – Trouble

2. Britney Spears –  Toxic

3. Justin Trousersnake – Sexy Back

4. Donna Summer – Hot Stuff

5. The Mock Turtles (Fat Boy Slim Remix) – Can You Dig It

6. The Killers – All These Things that I’ve Done

7. S Club 7 – Reach for the Stars

8. Nelly Furtado – Maneater

9. Kanye West – Gold Digger

10. The Killers – When You Were Young

11. Passion Pit – Sleepyhead

12. Tina Turner – Simply the Best
