POP MUSIC IS BRILLIANT PART DEUX

December 7, 2009 at 10:51 pm (Lulz, Musical)

Added to the slices of pop gems mentioned below, I felt the need to post these two videos for entirely different reasons

Lostprophets – ‘where we belong’

Wow. I want to hate Lostprophets so bad – Watkins comes across as a smug, arrogant cunt, they’re filthy rich, can have poon on tap and the whole consumerist bling bling image thing they give off is totally against the spirit of punk rock and hardcore…

The thing is, (and I don’t mean to namedrop here) having met Watkins during the whole Flash! Flash! Flash! Photography roller coaster thing…the dude’s simply a complete legend. Sure, he’s a bit cocky, but the guy literally can do whatever he wants simply because he’s Ian Watkins. Consequently he does some pretty rad things like take a bunch of normal dudes from London and let them support them on various shows, letting them bring mates like myself along for the ride, as opposed to simply fuck underage girls backstage.

And, most importantly, the band (there’s 6 of them remember) can write some FANTASTIC songs. ‘It’s Not The End Of The World…’ was terrible. Utter shite. This, is not. This is good, nay brilliant, nay outstanding. One of the best songs I’ve heard this year and when it’s released will probably be one of the best singles of 2010. It contains one of the best rock choruses I’ve heard in years and is the best pop/rock song of that sort since FFAF’s ‘Into Oblivion’ which is a masterpiece.

If Lossy P’s can write an album full of hits like that, it’ll be a genius. Balls to returning to the older metal with the DJ and wierd hip-hop inspired interludes, STADIUM ROCK like this song is much better

R Kelly – ‘Pregnant’

Words fail me. Seriously, the dude is such a genius. Highlights include

– “knock you up” as the little backing vocal”
– “until I met this girl in a club with an unbelievable booty, the sweetest girl in the world to me and on toppa that she’s a cutie…”
– “but I keep seeing this big old house with a pickett fence and a daaaawwwg’
– “So put that girl in the kitchen”
– “I just wanna put somethin’ in you”

You wanna know what’s dumber than people who moan about who gets voted off X-Factor?

People who moan over the fact that other people moan about who gets voted off X-Factor!!

I see so many more status updates on social networking sites bemoaning the fact that some people watch a popular tv show… than from the people who actually give a toss about the results!

So those who don’t care…suck it up, don’t watch, and let the rest of the public get their fix of dalendless dwads and wondering what wonderfully revealing outfits Cheryl will wear next. I can never understand why people complain so much about something they’re not interested in when it’s just so easy to ignore.

M Bison

Just Sayin'

Though it did make me think more pop singers should dress like Cammy. M Bison was probably the lamest Street Fighter character.

So good. Numerous lolz have been had at this. I actually have loved it for ages but never knew the right moment to add it here. I can’t decide if it’s funnier than the Bracewar one though which is a bit longer and has a funny expression on one of them.

Integrity are the better band however.

We jammed at Phil’s and got 2 new songs sorta laid out. Simpler than before, which I think is good. Still heavy and aggressive, but hopefully will allow Ash to express himself a bit more vocally and get more singalongs. It was awesome trying to bust out the doomier and experimental stuff but at the same time I didn’t join a band to show off my guitar skillz, simple singalongs are generally more fun to listen to.

Phil was looking after Amy’s cat as well who is a mentalist, hence deciding to post the video now.

I can’t think of a title

just wrote a fuck off huge blog fully describing the last few days and realised how fucking boring it must have been to read. So instead I’ll sum up with pics:

Friday, at home with my housemate just discussing our personal lives and what we’re up to – bit of a catch up. It also consisted of a lot of….

Saturday:

2 tickets to Portman Road – £60. Petrol to travel back – £40. Emotional trauma from watching Ipswich get trashed 4-0 – £40 (pints and taxi). Getting to see the stand named after the greatest manager of all time, and have legends from that era parade the FA and UEFA cup around the stadium and be part of a great atmosphere celebrating Sir Bobby – Priceless.

But good Lord we were awful. What was more depressing was how the stadium started emptying at 70 minutes and the painful lack of chants come 4-0 down. I wanted some ironic banter ‘we’re gonna win 5-4’ and that, but no. I guess i need a picture, an awful free header which basically started the downfall. We looked pretty decent up until the first goal, but from then on t’was men against boys.

But yeah, fun night at the pub after catching up with old friends. I did see a friend of an ex who said ‘Alex! You look like a thug now….but you don’t look gay anymore’. Cheers love.

SUNDAY

CHILLAX. Drove home eventually for hangouts with Chaddock whilst listening to Fest bands. Really excited now, Small Brown Bike have been added, and slowly I’ve discovered more decent bands I’ll wanna see. OOh poster

MONDAY

Industry showcase type things. Free booze and food.

Here’s to a good week! Leeds this weekend!
