I think I actually typed the wrong thing. I meant "more people hate it than care enough to buy the singles". They watch and vote for the entertainment and the drama, not for the music. And Simon Cowell knows it - he's staged the whole show around it. Nothing ever happens that he hasn't foreseen or at least planned for. The man is a genius.
That's why we can all look forward to watching a pair of talentless morons with ridiculous hair prancing around doing unspeakable things to what were once real songs. He got the callers' money, and I'd bet my left nut that he's also getting a cut of every single contract that comes out of that place, with him backing or not.
Incidentally, from what I can see about 30 million people voted in the 2005 national elections (excluding Northern Ireland).
The road itself looks cool, but 84km? In an actual race, once the leader is in place long tracks become hotlapping because there's no need to alter their line. Shorter laps mean more passing which means more thinking and more drama.
What it has proven is more people hate the X Factor than vote for it. I think that itself speaks volumes, about the state of TV viewing, the reasons people watch these kind of shows and the music industry itself.
1. Passed my driving test (at the beginning of the year).
2. Recorded our album.
3. Got a new(er) car.
I reckon that's about it actually. I've still totally failed to win the lottery every time I entered so far and I'm not a global superstar yet. Which sort of sucks. But I guess there's always next year.
And widdling. Playing loads of notes really quickly is only cool if you whip it out once in a while. Doing it all the time makes you a one-trick pony. We can all do tapping if we really want to.
Being a good musician is not about what notes you play, it's about knowing when to shut the f*ck up.
I have to admit though that an acoustic guitar is a good one for picking up chicks. It's a very intimate instrument and when you see someone playing one you know that it's them doing the work rather than some effects board.
My Leon's tyres are crap in the bad weather. I don't know if it's running summer rubber or what, but I've spun the front wheels a few times on just wet tarmac. God knows what it'll be like when I take it out on the snow tonight. Go diesel torque power
The PS3 has the better graphics card (search for the RSX stats against the Xenos) but a less intense colour pallette. One does transparency better. One has better integrated network stuff. But in terms of gaming hardware, both 360 and PS3 are fairly evenly matched.
it's all about the exclusives. Uncharted or Gears of War. GT or Forza. Blah de blah or woop de do.
I've liked Eliza since the moment she came onto the scene in Buffy. Her character was way more interesting than any of the Scoobies.
I've started stalking her in Twitter and eventually our paths will cross. Especially right now since she's vulnerable due to her broken arm
All private sales are "sold as seen" and that's the same thing that a lawyer would tell him. There's no comeback on it and he should know better. Especially if he's been doing retarded stuff like sticking screwdrivers in spark plugs. Even if it had been working before, that act alone could have messed it up and there's no way to prove it either way.
Here's my Viper parked on my driveway. Well, it's not mine exactly, but it's the same as mine. Well it's not the same as mine, but it's the same colour. Well, not exactly the same colour, but one from the same visible spectrum.
Because when our producer asked us to bring him an album which we liked the overall sound of, our guitarist brought Joe Bonamassa's "Sloe Gin" so ours is getting mastered at the same place.
This album is a veritable international collaboration. Scottish singer, English guitarist and Drummer, Anglo-Australian bassist, Welsh producer, Kiwi studio engineers and we had a session Hammond organ player record his parts in New Zealand. If only the string quintet had been European or Asian we'd have it sorted.
