The Darkness - Bass Guitar Pick!

My friend and I went to see The Darkness play last night. We got there early, and got to stand right up against the stage in front of Franki Poullain. During the show he handed both of us picks:

Great show. I can't recommend a Darkness show highly enough. They're a really tight band with a great stage performance and kick-ass songs.

Happy Birthday Liz Phair! (Liz Phair - Supernova)

The first song I ever heard by Liz Phair was Supernova. I heard it on a late-night station in Maryland while driving home from where I was staying. This song came on, and they gave it a bit of a run-up about how it's the latest and long-awaited CD from Liz Phair.

About 2 seconds in I cranked up the radio and never looked back from Liz Phair fandom.

I love "You walk in clouds of glitter and the sun reflects your eyes
And every time the wind blows, I can smell you in the sky
Your kisses are as wicked as an F-16
And you fuck like a volcano, and you're everything to me."

I think she likes him.

Bonus live version on Letterman!

The Buggles - Video Killed the Radio Star (Live)

Honestly, I found this looking up songs by The Undertones. I had no idea these guys ever did anything live.

It's good, too:

The Undertones - My Perfect Cousin

"He thinks that I'm a cabbage, because I hate University Challenge."

It's okay Feargul, I only know University Challenge from The Young Ones.
