I 'urt my h-elbow
Having received Fifa 07 for my PSP for Xmas (a clever financial move from my other half meaning I also got Tiger Woods 07) my hands were beginning to seize up and my elbow cracked with every corner kicked, every tap-in netted, every pass completed. I have spent the last while managing Barnsley, you see, and they (i.e. I) just ain't good enough.
Luckily, with the internet at my fingertips I could scour the cyberworld seeking out underhanded ways in which I could allow my team an advantage.
And soon there it was: Pass to goalkeeper,Run to the D,Kick fullpower and the striker will snaffle it and enter into a one-on-one with the 'keeper.
Oh mighty Barnsley's luck changed and soon we were in the playoffs.
But they just couldn't beat Cardiff and then the fucking PSP packed up.
I'm sorry lads.
There has been alot of noisy music around, hasn't there? Isn't it great? While Crystal Stilts had a few hiccups at their recent gig, Wavves rocked it hard not so long ago and of course the blogs are all in a frenzy over 'noise' bands and retro-shoegaze bands and so on.
One of the standouts from this gaggle (or should that be gaggggggle?) is LA's Dum Dum Girls, which is one librarian called Dee Dee. Here's a lowest of the lo-fi example of her tuneage.
Hey Sis - Dum Dum Girls
You also may have heard the one-man band Blank Dogs being namechecked by many of these noisy acts like Crystal Stilts or Vivian Girls. Blank Dogs are/is certainly not for everyone so here is a decent example of what to expect.
Blank Dogs - Ants
Blank Dogs - Three Window Room

EDIT: How the FUCK did I get that Yahoo Media Player to work on my page?? I don't know but expect alot more music from now on. Class.
EDIT 2: Just realised linking to a pornstar's Twitter could end up skewing my 'visitor' stats. Could be as interesting as the time I used the terms 'Animal Collective Merriweather Post Pavillion' and 'rapidshare' in the same post...
