hoa, I drank too much tquila. I'm seriously buzzing....I am
going to try to get this out but please undesrtand I'm hammered
here... I'll tell you about this week's stories. Okay. There's
this one about a woman who laughed at her pretentious friend who
thought he was famous, but he was full of it... That was a good
one. And then there's this piece about the Geraldine Fibbers who
are relaly cool, they aren't like those wusses at the Lilith Fair,
these women don't take any shit, okay? Whoa, relax Zamfir, relax....if
I sit still the room will stop spinning. i wish somebody would
turn off that damn bossa nova music. Okay time to move on, we
also got a story on Whiskeytown, which is where I feel like I
am right now. Didn't we have a story about them last week? Can't
reember. But here's the story. Speaking of cowboys with their
"y'all-ternative" music, read here for more information
about No Depression magazine, where they talk about that kind
of music. That country alternative stuf.f And if you like the
country style but also Irish, like the Pogues, you might like
the Keltic Cowboys. Click HERE for a story about them. Ow.
Damn, this isn't working. I need water or Pepto. I think I'm gong
to barf. Better hurry... oh yeah, there are a few stories about
Christians in this week's issue. Remember Amy Grant? I always thought
she was little miss prissy Christian, but after I read this I
thought she was kinda cool. She seems sad though. Another article
talks about a new kind of Gospel music where they use a hip-hop
beat. I wonder are there any Christian rappers yet? Wouldn't be
surprised. Okay now for my favorite part, if I can get through
this without spilling it...here's some good reviews of good bands
I like. This one talks about Negativland, who once did a song
full of Kasey Casem saying the f-word (for real). it was Excellent!.
It also reviews Tan Dun, a Chinese classical guy who is probably
cool. I can't list all these reviews but I will tell you that
this article has reviews of El Caminos, techno dude DJ Soul Slinger,
and some band named Cagnee and Lacee and that's real cute, huh?
Ugh....I'm gonna puke, better hurry.... Another review
talks about a compilation of local bands around Tucson and San
Diego and.....another one tells about concerts with Cheap trick
and some other band.s....gotta go!!
If anything in this section offends, annoys or perturbs your senses,
here's your place to scream like an angry punk rocker.
