Pete Doherty behind bars

so Pete Doherty of The Libertines/Babyshambles has been arrested and will spend about 3 months in prison. That sucks. His situation always saddened me, he is such an amazingly talented musician who has some really fucked up things in his life.

Babyshambles - Janie Jones [mp3]

on another note, I finally got the new Panic album. I adore it. when people said they had a butt load of Beatles' influences, they weren't kidding. I heard some Aretha Franklin too haha. a formal review will shortly follow.

Panic at the disco - When the day met the night [mp3]

finally, Bob Dylan has been awarded a Pulitzer Prize.

sexual self sufficiency.

I forgot how often I used to watch this video. you can't watch it once. it's more addictive than nicotine. the director wanted to make it look like The Strokes were achieving orgasms. needless to say, the effect was achieved and then some. to me, this song is the perfect answer to sexual self sufficiency.

The Strokes - Reptilia [mp3]

and also a great tune to have on repeat for 5 miles and/or a whole bunch of ab exercises. boo ya.

I cannot wait until Albert's album comes out in June and he begins touring. because the sooner he does that, the sooner The Strokes will be out with a new album and the sooner I can achieve nirvana.

I was listening to "Sunshine" by Matt Costa and windows media player continued with the Little Miss Sunshine Soundtrack, one of my favourites. That record got me to listen to Sufjan Stevens, so I am pretty indebted to that. Damn good movie too.

I thought I'd share this:

Devotchka is brilliant, I'm glad they're getting noticed nowadays.
