1) My iPod appears to have died. It keeps switching itself off and on but won't connect to my computer or give me the menu screen, just the endless black and white apple screen of doom. Those of you who know me know that this is heartbreak in electronic form. I had 76GB on there of lovely, lovely stuff.

I can't be without an iPod and I gave my previous one to a friend. :::verklempt:::

2) Iran's missiles are pastede on, yay!

3) David Gray is angry that interrogators are using his music to extract information from prisoners in Iraq.
I was wondering what kind of music would make me beg for release and I think for me it would be gangsta rap. I could stand Celine Dion, for the singalong factor but if someone played me Ani Di Franco over and over I would cheerfully lose my hearing.

What would be the music that would make you crack?

4) I love this song: The Quest Bryn Christopher. It sounds like Amy Winehouse by way of David McAlmont and Motown.

5) Pop quiz, hotshots: can you think of a movie in the past five years featuring a female leading character who was not defined solely by her reproductive system or relationship to the male hero?

Poll #1221192 Oh Hollywood, I despair

A film with an interesting female protagonist is...



Cos all I've got is Pan's Labyrinth

ETA 6) BRADLEY WHITFORD AND RUPERT PENRY-JONES IN A THING ON TELLY! Burn Up It also has Neve Campbell in it, but you can't have everything. It's written by Simon Beaufoy, which may or may not be a good thing.

I also watched Bonekickers on Tuesday, which is Da Vinci Code meets Time Team meets Indiana Jones. I am not sure whether it is magnificent cack, or just cack.

'Agadoo' by Black Lace. The defense rests.

TY for alerting me to 6, I knew it was coming (but not when) and frankly BW love would be much appreciated. Anything to stop me thinking about THAT right now would be useful...

I appear to have lost my iPod :( You have my sympathies.

Oh, and Transamerica with Felicity Huffman, currently doing the rounds on Sky (I believe) I hope a woman playing a man who's about to be a woman gets into the definition...

You're going to be thinking about THAT until you're done. Face it *g*

Was I the person you were talking about in your music post this morning. I only ask because I was embarrassed to answer if it wasn't then I felt embarrassed not to answer and oh, god, to NOT BE SO DAMNED ENGLISH.

I loved Transamerica but I want a big damned action movie with a female lead who is not a misogynists self-satisfied nightmare, and Hollywood does not want me to have one, the bastards
