With Just A Hint Of Mayhem

Music trivia, useless info, extra added random stuff and the odd rant from me

“Princess Leia, where are you tonight and who’s laying there by your side?” May 3, 2012


Today is May 3rd which must mean that tomorrow is Star Wars Day right? Of course it is; May the 4th be with you! I thought I’d celebrate this with a couple of Star Wars related tracks. Notably Ash, they did a cover of Cantina Band as a B Side to their classic single “Girl From Mars“. They also opened their album ‘1977’ with the sound of a TIE Fighter, whilst their label was called Deathstar.

Then there is Blink 182’s “A New Hope” from their ‘Dude Ranch‘ album which I believe is about Princess Leia. Then there is the classic Sarah Brightman and Hot Gossip 70s hit “I Lost My Heart To A Starship Trooper” which mentions Darth Vader in the lyric. And finally you’ll hear “Chewbacca (What A Wookie)” by Supernova a song that was featured on the Clerks soundtrack.

 

“Call all you want but there’s no one home” July 5, 2010


Lady GaGa 'cracks' the 10 million mark

Is it just me or does this little piece of news seem a little weird to you as well? Lady GaGa has become the first living person to have more than 10 million FaceBook fans. But even stranger for me is that she is only in sixth place overall. The top 5 are Texas Hold ’em Poker, Michael Jackson, Mafia Wars, Facebook and the US TV show Family Guy. She recently overtook Barack Obama who languishes on a measly 9.8 million. I’m really pleased that Farmville doesn’t get a mention though. You can click here to read the story on the BBC’s Newsbeat.

Actual proof that Elmo is in fact a skinned Ewok

Whilst we’re talking strange here is another great story from Newsbeat; Elmo off of Sesame Street sings Beyonce and Alicia Keys whilst being interviewed by the delightful Natalie Jamieson. Click here to read it. I think I prefer his Beyonce to his Alicia. Does anyone really say Hubba Hubba anymore? Apart from Elmo obviously. Did you know that before he got his big break providing vocal arrangements and backing vocals for David Bowie on the ‘Young Americans’ album a certain Mr Luther Vandross wrote and sang for Sesame Street?

'Nuff Said!

And finally on this tour of some slightly odd stories we move on to Justin Bieber. The young Canadian’s Twitter page has been the subject of what I think is an excellent prank. With no restriction on the eligible countries his ‘fans’ were asked to vote for a country he should visit. Imageboard (wtf?) website 4Chan nominated North Korea and in the past couple of days the land of Kim Jong Il has moved from 24th place to 1st. Voting closes on July 7th, so come on, you know what to do, get on over and vote for North Korea!

There have also been some altogether more nasty hacks on his videos and such. These caused his YouTube videos to link to porn sites and spurred completely unfounded rumours that he was dead and that his Mum would be posing for Playboy. Click here for the story on the Beeb

Kim Jong Il (will he ever be known as Kim Jong Well?) contemplates the visit of Mr Bieber
