Coupling - Stuck in the Giggle Loop

Favourite song lyrics at the moment...

Having recently bought The Church's Starfish album from iTunes (it includes the song Under the Milky Way, which was made slightly less obscure by its inclusion in Donnie Darko), I just love the following:

"I'm priceless, you're worthless, but it's not a bad match," from Blood Money

and "Wear a gun and be proud, but bare breasts aren't allowed," from North, South, East and West.

Anybody out there on the Flist (or beyond) who's never heard anything by The Church, I shall just give a quick rec for Gold Afternoon Fix, Priest=Aura, and Sometime Anywhere as they're my particular favourites of their albums. If you like intelligent rock/indie music, they're well worth checking out.

Coupling - Stuck in the Giggle Loop

Oh, and speaking of music...

Okay, I forget who told me about this (I think either Tim or Misha need to claim responsibility), but, I quote from Wikipedia:

On December 1, 2008, a campaign was started on popular Social Networking site, Facebook, to get Rick Astley To Number 1 at Christmas. The group attracted nearly 30,000 people in its first week active. The campaign has also been named "The Ultimate Rickroll". The campaign's main objective is to not only rickroll Christmas itself, but to protest the Christmas Number 1s in the past which have been dominated by such competitions as the UK's X-Factor. The campaign is actively advertised on many websites from forums to mass social networking sites such as Bebo, Myspace and Facebook as well as having its own YouTube channel. Campaigners are encouraged to get as many people as possible to download Rick Astley's 'Never Gonna Give You Up' from iTunes between the 15th and 20th of December 2008.

So. Yeah. Go on, buy Never Gonna Give You Up from iTunes. You know it makes sense. In a kind of weird, warped way, at any rate...
Mince Pies

Mince Pies

I'm always surprised when people say they don't like mince pies, 'cos I think (bias here) they're lovely. Why limit them to Christmas? They're scrummy whatever time of year it is.

What do the wonderful folks of Flistland think?
