Give Paris’ daughter some advice

I see how Paris Hilton’s life and recent prison stay has provided her with perspective and wisdom that she wishes to pass onto a daughter one day. “When I have a daughter I have a lot of good advice for her,” said Hilton.

I’m kind of wondering what advice Paris might have to offer. Here’s a couple of ideas:

  • Panties aren’t just for after Labor Day – you can wear them all year round.
  • Porn can be a way out of Beverly Hills.

July 10, 2007 – a music lover’s wet dream

Very rarely will there be days like this. No fewer than 5 stellar new releases putting a drain on my wallet. Here they are in order of acquisition.


Interpol – Our Love to Admire (7/9/2007 11:51 PM) I had the foresight to pre-order this from iTunes. I’m not sure what I got for my pre-order other than having it 9 minutes early but for a band that I expect to be one of the important acts from the U.S. in coming years – those are a precious 9 minutes.


Spoon – Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga (7/10/2007 8:09 A.M.) Praise to eMusic for having this one early on the day of release. Entertainment Weekly gave this an A+ this past weekend so I’ve been waiting something less than patiently.


Smashing Pumpkins – Zeitgeist (7/10/2007 11:26 A.M.) I revert back to 1997 and pick up the latest pumpkins release. Mind you I didn’t love the 1999 Pumpkins as much as say the 1996 Pumpkins but I’m an optimist.


Crowded House – Time on Earth (7/1/2007 11:26 and 7 seconds A.M.) I can’t believe I forgot this one was out today. This is me reverting back to my 1992 self because that’s when I became a big CH fan. I’ve followed them and Neil Finn ever since, so this was an automatic. Thank Best Buy for having this on an end-cap.


Mark Ronson – Version (estimated pick-up: 7/11/2007 6:30 P.M.) – I looked in vain at Best Buy for this but to no avail. Tomorrow I’ll get it at Main Street Music in Manayunk [Update: looks like iTunes added this late – update acquisition time to 7:30 PM or so). Another Entertainment Weekly pick of the week – Ronson specializes in doing really cool whacked out covers. I think his cover of Radiohead’s “Just” is better than the original. Sacrilege I know – listen to it though. On this CD he works with artists such as Amy Winehouse.

I’m cut off after tomorrow. Kristen is taking my debit card. (Of course I still have 65 downloads remaining at eMusic).

Random Ten: July 4th edition

Happy 4th of July all:

  1. Metal Firecracker – Lucinda Williams
  2. Independence Day – Elliott Smith
  3. 4th Channel – The Delgados
  4. Holiday – Green Day
  5. Firecracker – Ryan Adams

  7. December 4th – DJ Danger Mouse
  8. Fourth World War – Ted Leo and the Pharmacists
  9.  Sparkle – Afterhours

A special place of honor for a song that didn’t come up – 4th of July by Aimee Mann. What an exquisite song regardless of when you hear it.

Live free or Die Hard

I will refrain from making obvious sexual jokes about the title of this movie but I will say that this movie was the best action movie I’ve seen in years.   Almost as good as the first, but better than any of the other two that have preceded it.       Yes there are times where you have to stretch to suspend disbelief, but it was definitely worth our $11.75 (yes $11.75 because we decided to spring for the Imax screen – decidedly not worth the extra dollars.)     Anyway, Bruce is as kickass as he always was and the plot made sense and moved along quickly.

Yippie ki yay Motherfucker!
