I'm a Jew... I'm small... I'm homosexual... and I live in Sheffield ... I'm fucked
We watched The History Boys last night. Essentially it really is Dead Poet's Society, with homosexuality, but it is such a charming and endearing little film that it is well worth seeing. And as it takes place in a boys' school in Sheffield in the 80s, there's a killer soundtrack as well. Well worth seeing.
And it being set in Sheffield of course made me think about one of Sheffield's favourite sons, the mighty king - Jarvis Cocker. Jarvis played Vancouver last night, a show which, had it been at an all ages venue, I would have made a serious attempt to attend with Eva. But alas we were forced to save our money. Did anybody hear any reviews?
I've been listening to a lot of Pulp lately. I'm coming at an appreciation of Pulp sort of backwards, as I never paid them too much attention before, but since I love Jarvis so much I've been listening with a keener ear. They really were pretty great, especially for a band started by a 15 year old Jarvis.
This video of Common People makes me lol. It's pretty cheesy, but such a great song, and Jarvis is still such a baby, but oh so sassy:
Time to hand out this week's Labia Award. The field was stacked once again this week, making this judge's job exceedingly difficult, but it is with great pleasure that I announce that this week's winner is :
