No Time Like the Presents 

If you're anything like us, then not only will you harbour a deep seated grudge against the world, but you'll also, despite their being less than a week to go, still not have bothered your arse doing any Christmas shopping and the thought of actually getting started is getting less and less enticing with each passing second. Fear not, though! HMV and Virgin are open well into Christmas Eve and buying all your friends and relatives CD's really is the best way of letting them know that you care so little about them that you could only be bothered visiting one shop to buy all their presents. But what should you buy? Well, as advertisers all know, every single one of your family members is nothing more than a lazy, easily marketable to stereotype, so here's the official Talent in a Previous Life Present Guide to give you a few clues:-Or alternatively, if you want the people you now to have a happy christmas, you could get them the poptastic Girls Aloud best of, the rather lovely new Yusuf Islam album - yes you do, he used to be Cat Stevens and Ronan Keating's unable to go longer than a month without churning out another slipshod cover of Father and Son - the underappreciated Pet Shop Boys offering or The Pipettes' We Are The Pipettes, the single greatest album released this year. Cheers!
