All American Rejects <3 The Internet

What is with the All American Rejects and their music videos recently. First there was "Dirty Little Secret" (which was a while ago), the theme of which was Post Secret, and now "Move Along" (I'm not sure how old it is, but I only saw it recently) appears to have taken its theme from a YTMND. I don't know if it was intentional or not, but


I'm not mad or anything, I just feel cool for noticing it (unlike the "Juggernaut Bitch" reference in X-Men 3).

Mp3 Monday: Leslie

I watched French music TV channels a lot while I was in Paris. One song that played a lot was "L'envers de la terre" by French singer Leslie. I'm not sure what the song is about, but from the video I'm going to assume it's about aliens. The B-side to the single of "L'envers de la terre" is "Tell Me (Supa Station)", an English version of the single. The lyrics were clearly written by someone whose first language is not English, but it is still enoyable with an "ooh, you got me" chorus.

I'm Back!

I have returned from my vacation with many souveniers and an empty wallet. I bought 5 CDs that should last me all the Mp3 Mondays until September at least, and plenty of other stuff that I can't remember now that really doesn't matter to this blog (although I did see a French Buffy the Vampire Slayer novel that would have interested Holly; I took a picture of the cover but didn't buy it). But besides all the stuff I bought, I have also come back with the lesson learned that I should never leave the country during the World Cup in case the country I go to makes it to the finals and the locals are out partying and drinking until the early morning while I am trying to sleep.

Tomorrow I'll put up a review/recap of the first episode(s?) of Project Runway 3, and hopefully this weekend I'll take a break from the pop culture and put up some pictures of my trip.

Mp3 Monday: Paris Edition

Hello dear readers! This is my first post from overseas! I am currently in Paris and over the next two weeks will also go to Brussels and Amsterdam (making it back home the day after ProRunS3, of course). To make up for last week when I forgot and next week when I won't have computer access, I have three mp3s for you to enjoy.

The first song is "Paris In The Rain" by Alcazar. Despite the song title, it's actually not raining here now. Interestingly enough, the first time I heard Alcazar was on the first time I went to Europe (when I went to London in 2002).

The second song is "Kiss From A Rose" by Angela Aki. This is a Japanese cover of the song by Seal, who is married to Heidi Klum, who is the host of that show that I will be missing while away. Angela also sings the theme song for the video game Final Fantasy XII, "Kiss Me Good-Bye".

The third song is "Na seniku" by Atomik Harmonik. They are a Slovenian band that came 3rd in the Slovenian Eurovision preselection, and they perform polka-style music. I have no special vacation-related reason for selecting this song; everyone could use a little polka now and then.
