Gome of the Week
JLo and Britney are getting talk shows (maybe)!
This is good, because I've been having trouble catching them randomly on TV, so now I'll know where to find them.
By the way, that picture of Britney looks like me after I take a shot of tequila.
This Week's Link That's Probably Not That Great
Stallone Trivia - This is biff's kind of party. Click on the "Play Now" icon and test your Sly knowledge. There's a lot more fun trivia on the rest of the site too.
I think I got 9 out of 25 on the Stallone quiz. Pretty sad.
This Week's Movie You've Probably Never Seen
Bananarama: Video Singles (1987)
Found this the other day and just couldn't pass it up. I like to remember the days when girl groups were hot, but kind of in that awkward gangly way. Makes you feel like they might actually have some musical ability.
If this video has any faults, it's that it only has four videos on it and "Cruel Summer" is not one of them.
But let's hear it for 1985/1986!
This Week's Record You're Probably Not Listening To
Ween - Quebec (2003)
Dean and Gene are back, and they're browner than ever. This just came out yesterday and I just bought it today and I'm just now listening to it for the second time on my headphones as I write this.
Anyway, it's a good mix of stuff from the Pure Guava era and their newer sound that they brought on White Pepper.
Rolling Stone gave it two stars so that's a good sign. Same rating they gave Ween's last album and the last couple Faith No More albums, which are all brilliant.
My favorite lyric so far: "The checks all bounced/ I came in your mouth."
Still no idea what the title is about.
