i like isiah cos he dunks!i know it's almost 24 hours since the pistons dismantled the lakers 100-87 in the nba finals, winning the crown, but i didn't have time to post today. met up w/ fow's again at o'flat's, drank several dollar coors light drafts, got the 'no means no' & '1st oj, now kobay...stay away from the white women' chants going again at the bar. even donnie darko played in the finals again. now granda, he looked horrible, missing 1 shot badly, missing 2 free throws, & appearing to be totally phased. he even had the ball stolen from him like scott baio was defending him in the invisible man. be that as it may, all those dodgy LA smugfucks are eating their shite talk from the past 10 days. the best part is hearing all the stupid rubbish metro-detroiters say on camera when they're drunk. stuff like (my all-time fave), 'i like isiah cos he dunks!'. i heard so much stupid gibberish on the news. expect much the same at the parade tomorrow.

seacrest...douched!the new carson daly, ryan douchecrest, torches simon cowell in an interview which ironically was w/ the 'straight' times newspaper of singapore. seacrest said cowell is too harsh on un-talented contestants, & crushes their dreams of recording terrible albums filled w/ suicide inducing cover songs. although i'm not a big fan, cowell is the ONLY reason to watch that show--god forbid someone's actually honest on fox. & he was on the simpsons this past year as a pre-school admissions screener. who the hell is seacrest? i never heard of him until fall 2003, the 2nd season of idol. this guy was that brown-noser in high school you hated. who sucks more D on that show, paula abdul or seacrest? toss up.

andy or peabs?andy dick pleads not guilty to drug possession rap from coachella. i know this bust was revealed post coachella by every blogger, but who gets pinched by a rent-a-cop? what a fucking tourist. he went from getting busted for coke in '99 to pot in '04. nice slide. it should have been at least heroin or speedball. even i know that. he kind looks like a deranged eccentric peabs, no?

who knew rivers cuomo started a blog? me neither. he's posted 3 new songs on it though. & i thought i was too late to the party.

rue, more buzz than phantomyeah you're always, up to no good. phantom planet singer alex greenwald does a peta promo, poses w/ a baby chicken, & spews the worst quote ever, 'there's a lot of horrendous things that go on, not to everyone's knowledge (re: chicken farming). people should be aware of it, & not just how cute little chicks can be'. who do you think you are chris martin? maketrade...worst

the grizz forwarded me this badly drawn boy buzz earlier (since i can't find a link)...

badly drizzedAstralwerks is proud to announce the addition of Badly Drawn Boy to its roster. The new album One Plus One Is One will be released on July 27, 2004. In a world where the prolific are seen as freaks and consistency is frowned upon (people like to think of musicians lost, scrabbling pitifully on the ground then rising again- it makes for good copy) Badly Drawn Boy (AKA Damon Gough) is mighty hard to deal with. But there's something else. For Damon is not only consistent and prolific (his last two records, The About A Boy Soundtrack & Have You Fed The Fish? were released just seven months apart) he is, as a writer, still in the ascendant. The piano and guitar parts on One Plus One Is One will have you asking if our unassuming hero is really the author of almost all you hear. And the passionately positive lyrical themes will, allied to tunes you swear are so classic they must have come from some ancient mother-lode, have you smiling. Damon's music finds the innocent in everyone and disarms time & time again.

Badly Drawn Boy began work in June 2003 at Stockport England's Moolah Rouge Studios. Damon had decided he wanted to be nearer to his home for the making of this LP, as most of Have You Fed The Fish? was put together in LA. Moolah Rouge is just a 15-minute cab ride from his house. You don't get jetlag during the journey from his home outside of Manchester to Stockport. And you get to see your kids now & again. the greatest singer in the worldThese things were important. One Plus One Is One is a simpler & more spacious record than the micro detailed Fish. It was meant to be that way. Sure there are some sonic shenanigans and a playfulness that speaks of the relaxed atmosphere this record was created in, but it stands or falls on the quality of the songs. It stands.

One Plus One Is One is fundamentally organic & computer free. It has the space & darkness of Gainsbourg's Melody Nelson, the pagan folkiness of Paul Giovanni's Wicker Man soundtrack, & the universal positivity of Jesus Christ Superstar. It's that ambitious and it connects- w/ songs about passing on good fortune, looking after your friends, encouraging the basic humanity in all of us, and always finding the love that makes us more than monkeys. The US release of One Plus One Is One will include the bonus tracks, 'Don't Ask Me I'm Only The President' & 'Plan B'.

moving on to 'things you don't care about', today was a bad day. shockey's were bugging me all day to get some stuff done. i've spent alot of time recently contemplating things that need to change for the better. no, i'm not talking about weekend surgery in vegas or anything. i'm talking quitting smoking on july 12th, for good. i've quit for 3 month stints twice, but stress has always made me crumble & light up again. i've started walking ~4 miles/day, & in a few weeks that will be 3-4 miles running per day. not looking forward to the murder my lungs are going to go through, but who wants to die of lung cancer. duhvs, drinking will need to be curbed, cos nothing knocks you off the wagon faster than binge drinking.

i'll stay away from the career arena, but that's one too. it's buzzless to find that 4.5 years out of school, i'm not real content w/ (my area of work). glad i spent >40 grand on the degree. worst. although i didn't win the big game lotto last night, i did win $3. if i won, i wouldn't have to worry about any of this crap. maybe friday i'll win? yeah, i'm gonna do that. also, i think i'm going to stop being a smart-ass prick so much. when pressure torques my bp, i'm going to drop a 'serenity now', kramer stizz. from bitter smoker to happy non-smoker? some say implausible. we shall see. the patch coupled w/ weekly sessions w/ a topless hypnotherapist can work miracles.
