Why hadn't I heard of Amy Winehouse before the Brits? She seems cool...weird, but cool.
I can't say I was as happy about Take That as you were, but if I sat on Barlow's lap, I'd probably feel the same. (will you bring that glass next time your over, just so I can LOOK at it?)

You know what's weird...I picked Nexyjp to win best non - poof limey band of the year. How did they do?

wonderbug said...

moxy - you should def check out the amy winehouse....
in fact...you can download it with this link: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=WEJHROMG

i met her when she came to do promo on her first album...very norf london - but, i liked her.
this album is VERY good.
mark ronson produced a lot of the songs and i LOVE his stuff (he did a bunch of stuff with lily allen and some songs on the last robbie album)...

and, i'll bring the glass.
i didn't drink out of it for many years...but, now krankie uses it to drink his cocktails.

krankie: you're the poofy scotsman of the year.

You're all the way over there, and we're all the way over here.
