I have yet to find a more cogent analysis of the foreign policy espoused by Bush and his neocon buddies than this. |W|P|107213018151332567|W|P||W|P|danpawley@gmail.com12/13/2003 07:09:00 AM|W|P|dan|W|P|Wind up sharks can be fun. And now I guess it's time to start thinking about my Records Of The Year as if I was a quality monthly music mag. But don't worry, you won't find any old people trying to be hip by pretending they like Beyonce and Justin Timberlake here. The only way I like Timberlake is with his head on a stick. In no order, but as they occur to me... The Ultimate 50s & 60s Rockin' Horror Disc - a collection of horror themed rock n'roll tracks. Any album that features a song called "Watusi Zombie" is going to be alright by me. Pitman - It Takes A Nation Of Tossers - UK hiphop from (allegedly) a coalminer. Funniest record of the year, dissing everything from The Streets to The Matrix, and all in a funny accent. "There is no spoon." "There fucking is, I ate my Weetabix with it this morning" More when I think of anything half decent that actually came out this year. |W|P|107126780163377682|W|P||W|P|danpawley@gmail.com12/10/2003 05:02:00 AM|W|P|dan|W|P| Probably the best online shop in the world I see Neil LaBute (Mormon, misogynist, but still dull) is writing a remake of The Wicker Man. He has moved it to California and set it in a matriarchal society. So it's not really The Wicker Man at all, is it? Idiot. Don't even get me started on the new version of Battlestar Galactica, or casting Keanu Reeves as John Constantine. From now on I am only going to watch films made by Mongolians.

If only Holden Caulfield had had a stuffed tiger. |W|P|107048849350105500|W|P||W|P|danpawley@gmail.com12/01/2003 05:29:00 AM|W|P|dan|W|P|This is a new piece by Joolz. It's very good. My friend Rich sent me a charming email about the Weakerthans show he saw last night. My favourite part was the girl who described the band to her friend as being "Like emo, but with more words". |W|P|107022433243054886|W|P||W|P|danpawley@gmail.com
