W hoa, I drank too much tquila. I'm seriously buzzing....I am going to try to get this out but please undesrtand I'm hammered here... I'll tell you about this week's stories. Okay. There's this one about a woman who laughed at her pretentious friend who thought he was famous, but he was full of it... That was a good one. And then there's this piece about the Geraldine Fibbers who are relaly cool, they aren't like those wusses at the Lilith Fair, these women don't take any shit, okay? Whoa, relax Zamfir, relax....if I sit still the room will stop spinning. i wish somebody would turn off that damn bossa nova music. Okay time to move on, we also got a story on Whiskeytown, which is where I feel like I am right now. Didn't we have a story about them last week? Can't reember. But here's the story. Speaking of cowboys with their "y'all-ternative" music, read here for more information about No Depression magazine, where they talk about that kind of music. That country alternative stuf.f And if you like the country style but also Irish, like the Pogues, you might like the Keltic Cowboys. Click HERE for a story about them. Ow.

Damn, this isn't working. I need water or Pepto. I think I'm gong to barf. Better hurry... oh yeah, there are a few stories about Christians in this week's issue. Remember Amy Grant? I always thought she was little miss prissy Christian, but after I read this I thought she was kinda cool. She seems sad though. Another article talks about a new kind of Gospel music where they use a hip-hop beat. I wonder are there any Christian rappers yet? Wouldn't be surprised. Okay now for my favorite part, if I can get through this without spilling it...here's some good reviews of good bands I like. This one talks about Negativland, who once did a song full of Kasey Casem saying the f-word (for real). it was Excellent!. It also reviews Tan Dun, a Chinese classical guy who is probably cool. I can't list all these reviews but I will tell you that this article has reviews of El Caminos, techno dude DJ Soul Slinger, and some band named Cagnee and Lacee and that's real cute, huh? Ugh....I'm gonna puke, better hurry.... Another review talks about a compilation of local bands around Tucson and San Diego and.....another one tells about concerts with Cheap trick and some other band.s....gotta go!!
