This may not be exactly an original observation - to the extent that I may have made it myself on this 'ere very journal - but y'know that thing where you put a CD in your computer's CD drive and iTunes handily looks up a database to tell you what CD you've just put in...well, I swear the people who fill in the "Genre" field must be on something heavy duty, probably illegal, and possibly highly corrosive. Either that, of they're just taking the mickey. I mean, Beverley Craven's music could not even by the slimmest of margins be described as "rock", and Daniel Bedingfield's Gotta Get Thru This is definitely not "Easy Listening".

I had to giggle, though, at whoever had decided that one of Martyn Joseph's CD singles deserved the tag "unclassifiable". Because to a certain extent - and I mean this in a good way - he is a bit.

I'm still quite fond of the label Tim came up with to describe All About Eve's music: Pseudo hippy gothic folk rock & blues, which I think covers all the bases...
Coupling - Stuck in the Giggle Loop


Just finished watching season 2 of Chuck,, that was a damned impressive season finale. I can't believe they fitted it all into one 40 minute episode.

Although I hope my own wedding isn't quite as disastrous as Ellie & Devon's.

And I just loved that bit of music that played over the beach wedding. Might have to iTunes myself a copy of it.

And yeah, if anybody from NBC reads this blog (small chance, but it can't hurt): RENEW IT FOR A THIRD SEASON!!!

I might just have to eat regularly at Subway. *g*

Writer's Block: Folktales of the City

What is your favorite urban legend? Have you or anyone you know ever been fooled by one?

I've always been quite fond of the stolen biscuits anecdote, which Douglas Adams always swore blind had happened to him.

My utter utter favourite, though, has to be the vanishing hotel room, which I still think, with a bit of tweakage, could make a seriously good Doctor Who episode. Mr. Moffat, if you're reading this..?
