The State of Pop According to Noel Gallagher

Noel Gallagher on Miley Cyrus:

I think there’s a trend, unfortunately, in the game, at the minute, of girls desperately trying to be provocative or desperately trying to – in inverted commas – “start the debate” about some old shit or other. Because, really, they’re not very good.

It’s just embarrassing. Be good. Don’t be outrageous. Anybody can be outrageous! I could go to the Rolling Stone office and fucking shit on top of a boiled egg, right? And people would go, “Wow, fucking hell, that’s outrageous!” But is it any good? No, because, essentially, it’s just a shit on top of a boiled egg. That’s all it is. If I was to go to your office and play you a song that I’d just written that was amazing, that would be better, wouldn’t it?

OLYMPIC Maps

One of the things I seem to have inherited from my father is a love of maps. I have a closet full of them. A nice big folder in the back of the computer with a bunch too. To me, the best maps are of places that no longer exist. (ie. Prussia, New Spain…). But throw in some statistics and you get my nerdy heart pumping… link

That was a close one.  Account error almost erased this whole site. (And I should check my yahoo mail more frequently).  But everything is in working order now.
