It's... blimey, Wednesday. And updates of any kinda have been somewhat lacking in the last week and a half but we do have a good excuse, having spent the time being laid low by what we believe to have been a dose of the flu, but what fully trained medical personnel may well refer to as a dose of the sniffles. Either way, we found it nigh on impossible to motivate ourselves to actually get out of bed and eat, let alone sit down and provide witty commentary on the pop scene, not that the inability to do the latter has stopped us in the past, of course. Anyway, in the midst of our disease induced misery, we managed to work up the strength to hit record on our video control and so here, somewhat belatedly, is what we learnt from this week's Top of the Pops:-
- There were lots of boxes of washing powder on stage for the Sunset Strippers run through of Falling Star, presumably because use of a white powder is the only way you might get any enjoyment out of this idea free travesty of a song.
- Tyler James can fuck right off.
- The new Destiny's Child video, Girl, seems to be based around the concept that Sex and the City would be improved if there was more of a musical vibe to the show, failing to realise that the easy way to improve Sex and the City would be to wipe all the tapes and broadcast the Keystone Cops instead.
- 50 Cent can fuck right off as well.
- Phantom Planet's California is the theme tune to rubbish TV series, The OC. If we wanted to watch rich Americans act like twats, we'd just turn on the news and find out what George W Bush has been up to. (Satire)
- Despite what you may have been led to believe by the title of their new single, New Order aren't actually that fond of Kraft cheese slices. If they were, the extra calcium would no doubt have helped strengthened Hooky's spinal column and he would be constantly flopped over, having to play his bass guitar dangerously low as a result.
- McFly are number one. Go and join 50 and Tyler, thanks.
