Hard–Fi

5 out of 5 stars

"The next major british band" – Q Magazine.

Featuring songs such as 'Cash Machine', 'Hard to Beat' and 'Tied up to Tight', this CD is a very interesting listen. Playing on the street-society that is our age, Stars of CCTV incoperates everything about the life of urban Britain.

'Stars of CCTV' follows the story of a swollen credit card and the poverty which many youths are constricted by. We are all working for a cash machine..which is quite true. 'Hard to beat' has now become a regular club anthem and sports a catchy chorus and some wicked lyrics.

Stars of CCTV perfectly captures life's highs and lows, the good times and the bad times. 'Living for the weekend' is a tribute to going out on a saturday night for forgetting life's worries. We are all the stars of CCTV, and it's not aimed to show up the "chav lifestyle" and back-up social stereotyping or anything. It's a CD about life as we know it and the CCTV camera is simply a big metaphor.

This CD is a great listen, an urban masterpiece with a sound reminiscent of some of Oasis' tunes and some suburban 70's music. It's definetly quite different and cannot really be classed under one genre as it holds a bit of many: indie, pop, rock, reggae. It's a great start-out album for the guys from Middlesex, and Richard Archer (vocalist) is already tipped to be the next best thing when it comes to lyrics.

Definetly worth a listen.

So I look like…

Hmmm…this celebrity look alike machine thingy results are a little dubious.

Apparently I hold a close resemblence to:

1) Chelsea Clinton. No thanks.
2) Keith Richards. A man…
3) Kate Winslet. I can deal with that.
4) Wener Heisenberg. Another man.
5) Venus Williams. Oh dear.
6) Madonna. Hmm.
7) Britney Spears. Eww…I hope not.
8) Julie Andrews. No freaking way.
9) Scarlett Johansson. Hell yeah.
10) Sophia Loren. A classic!

Ups and downs…not sure why two males came up. I should be and am quite disturbed. Must be a glitch in the system…yesssss.

Australian Princess.

Today, in my blissful "i'm not going to do anything today" mindset, watched some of the outrageously stupid programme called "Australian Princess" where some ordinary Oz girls try to become a British Princess on Paul Burrell's (the butler we love to hate! No, we just hate him) and some crazy woman's judgement.

Having nothing better to do with their lives, these girls get trained in making tea "the proper way", serving lunch, making conversation, standing up straight and boating…whilst being told to lose a few pounds and that they are common because they don't usually use tea strainers.

The whole show is ridiculous. Paul Burrel (a.k.a Paul "i'm famous for trying to posh" Burrell) made me want to enter the royal bloodline just so I would have a good chance at killing him. He readily downgraded the rest of Britain and called us all "miffs" just because we don't set our tea cups and saucers at the 5 o'clock angle and because we don't spend 30 minutes making a cup of tea. The "cardinal sin" is apparently putting milk in the cup first. Well Paul, if you knew your tea history, some people would consider putting milk in their tea a sin in itself. It also became clear just how sad this man is: He bases his whole existence on the fact that he knows the royal family. Paul, you're still a butler…which traditionally is marginally better than a slave. And personally I'd rather not spend my life serving at someone's beck and call. So stick that up your pompous pipe and watch Spartacus! And you are certainly no Blackadder III.

The other judge person calls herself an "etiquette expert". This means that she has this "holier than thou" attitude and she thinks she can tell girls to lose weight..all while she looks ugly and while her double chin wobbles. Ah, but she worked for the Queen! So she must be important! Her self-importance levels are sky-high. She lectures the girls on being "lady-like" and tells them off for being too boisterous etc…but is it "lady-like" to be offensive and a loud-mouthed hag?

The girls, suffice to say, are all quite silly and should not change. Why anyone would want to actually be a princess nowadays is beyond me. Attention, I suppose.

The programme annoyed me.

Including songs such "Run to you", "Remember" and "One night love affair", this double CD compliation is anyone's ticket to some seriously good stadium rock.

Bryan Adam's talent of capturing 'the moment' is what makes his material just so listenable. Whether or not you might call yourself a Bryan Adams fan, there is bound to be at least one song on here which you will undoubtedly find yourself loving because it sums up one particular moment of your life.

In my opinion, it doesn't matter how intelligent song lyrics are, how good the guitaring is, how good the vocals are…if the music grabs you by your senses then it's worth it. The song lyrics are no Bob Dylan, the guitaring is no Brian May and the drumming is no Ringo…but Bryan Adams does well in all aspects of the music. The lyrics are truthful, capturing the thoughts of one particular moment, like when you meet someone new and you think you are head over heels over them. The music itself is something you can move to, sing along to and something which would be fantastic to hear live.

Not only does he look good, but his unique voice is something which distinguishes him from other artists.

It's just so easy to listen to. I'm not afraid to admit I like Bryan Adams…he's a legend! Conquer your Bryan Adams social isolation fear (something which I believe exists…for no good reason!!!) and go forth and buy a copy!

Things I did today…

Writing about an entry you don't have permission to view

Hearing about Jill's grand day out inspired me to tell you all about my day:

Today I got up at about 10:00am (not much of a lie-in but when you consider I start lectures 4 out of 5 week days at or before 10:00am, this is good!)

At about 2:00pm I headed onto campus and had some lunch in the Arts Centre, but it was bought from Costies. (It was rank actually..it was a chicken pasta salad a.ka. the most oniony soggy pasta I've ever had.) I then went to the library. I was accompanied by Adele. We spent about 2 hours in the library and then headed to Tesco, thinking we'd be good and go there instead of the more expensive Costcutters. Well…it was a right nightmare and a half. Tesco itself was really busy and there were screaming brats everywhere and mothers who use push-chairs as battering rams. Plus, when you are buying for more than just yourself, you have to make decisions. Hard decisions such like "what kind of bread do we get?!", "do we get this bag of prawns, or that bag of prawns?!". The list continues. We finally got to the checkout and left the shop (me with a huge bottle of olive oil in my rucksack which couldn't have weighed any heavier if it tried.) It felt like we had left our souls in Tescos.

Avoiding the "lets steal a trolly" option, we walked to the bus stop laden with all sorts of stuff and then had to stand at the cold bus stop for about 45 minutes waiting for the freaking bus. It was not fun at all. Food shopping trips have a real way of depressing you, and if someone had said something along the lines of "you smell" to me i think I would have punched them or just cried!

So we finally got on the bus and sat in various traffic jams. At last we got to our stop and walked the final leg of our journey back home…absolutely shattered!

Then woe beyond woes, the real kick in the nuts was that we hadn't actually bought any meat at all…so we had to go to the co-op to get some for dinner. We made spaghetti carbonara with chicken and bacon. Tres bien!

And then we started…THE CLEANING. Our kitchen was such the biggest mess on the planet so we missioned the clean-up. Everything is now spotless. We even disinfected the inside of the bin and cleared out the fridge and cleaned it. Even the floor was mopped.

Then we all sat down to watch this Channel 4 programme which counted down the pop star/band/whatever who sold the most singles. We all had our money on the Beatles (what legends)....but no. As they were about to annouce the "winner" I suddenly had this niggling doubt. After the Beatles were number 2, we started to think it might be Pink Floyd. But no, I thought…something doesn't seem quite right. And then I had this horrendous image: What if Cliff Richard won this? What if Cliff Richard proved to have sold the most singles…ever? This horrific image was realised. "How and why?" springs to mind.

And now here I am to tell the tale.

I can write really long entries about nothing – useful essay skill there.

Edit: I only have 2 and a half months left of being a teenager!?!?!!?!?! Jesus Christ! That just hit me around the face like a wet fish.

Edit 2: Daniel Craig is the next Bond…officially. You heard it here first! (You probably didn't.) Strange choice…a blond Bond. Nice stubble though.

I am proclaiming my love for Jack Johnson.

I shout out from the roof-tops:

"I love you, Jack Johnson!"

My god, his music is amazing. I bought 'In Between Dreams' ages ago, then yesterday came across his two other CD's, 'On and On' and 'Bushfire Tales.' Yoink!

Fabulous stuff.

"Future complications in the strings between the cans,
But no prints can come from fingers, if machines become our hands,
Then our feet become the wheels,
Then the wheels become the cars,
Then the rigs begin to drill until the drillin' goes too..far."

Going to Washington on Tuesday. Then going to New York on Saturday. Then flying home a week later.

Operation "get as much of a tan as possible" has officially begun. But first, I've got a party to go to. Going to the same place where I saw the hot band last week. Hope it's good!
