Well, did they or didn't they?
Mere hours after we were delighting in the news that Petah and Kate had exchanged nuptials, we now hear their handlers denying the rumours. Oh how cruel! We are being denied a much needed fairytale wedding. And after we all spent so much time speculating what it would be like to be invited to that wedding reception.
We have also been hearing rumours that Graham Coxon has finally rejoined Blur, but sadly after our hearts stopped fluttering madly and we went searching for substantiation of that news, we found no confirmation. It appears too good to be true. Unless you are a diehard Oasis fan, that is.
To drown my sorrows, I then went cd shopping.
Did I mention that for Christmas I received Neko Case's early cd, The Virginian, and Melissa McClelland's newest cd, Thumbelina's One Night Stand? I haven't given the latter much of a listen yet, but I am quite thrilled with The Virginian. It is deeply immersed in country music and Neko just bellows out the songs, but oh my it sounds fine. I love her cover of Bowling Green.
Today I scored Great Lake Swimmers' Bodies and Minds (which I really should have picked up at the Folk Festival this summer) along with Jarvis Cocker's new solo cd, Jarvis. I'm listening to that one right now, and while I admit that I am not the world's biggest Pulp fan (don't tell Eva - she'll be so disappointed), Jarvis' solo work is gooo-oood!
