have I mentioned lately that I love Ryan Ross? because I do.

This is Tokyo Hotel, they’re getting their makeup done, outside in the parking lot for everyone to see, oh and also they were playing their own song from their very large monster truck, from a very large stereo. By far the most entertaining thing I saw.

keep rocking being yourself, Ryan Ross. oh, and have babies someday with keltie. just so the world will die from the cuteness.

Matt Pond PA is giving out a free EP, which you can get here. linesthroughlines recommended it so I'm dl'ing it right now.

4AD Records is giving out a free compilation album to celebrate the holiday season. the albm features artists like TV On the Radio, Bon Iver, The Mountain Goats, etc. head over here to download the album (e-mail required). [via HearYa]

HearYa says that Billy Corgan is a huge prick. I was reading through he quotes he picked out from Corgan's interview with Greg Kot but I stopped after "Who’s above us? Who’s lighting the culture on fire? Nobody."
you can read the interview here, if you aren't as lazy as I am.

Simon Kuper talks about how the popularity of other sports may help football and fight obesity in India: India can fight the flab by gorging on other games.

I really should read Run of Play more than I do. As in, right after he updates that blog.

Cristiano Ronaldo took his shirt off the second the match ended and walked off, gently steaming, like someone who'd been hoping to take his shirt off under better circumstances. Dimitar Berbatov walked alongside him, wearing the scowl of someone who'd really prefer not to take his shirt off and who resents the tacit peer pressure imposed by the heat and vanity of the game.

the thought of Berbatov resisting Ronaldo-inflicted peer pressure makes me grin, in spite of everything. *g*

and I really dislike this new version of hyperlinking on posts. it freezes my screen :(

Pete talking to about homophobia, changing the scene and his bands. Some interesting tidbits, like this one

His new career was Fall Out Boy, a pop-punk band that left the local hardcore scene for more melodic rock pastures, in part because the homophobic violence they witnessed at shows pissed them off.

And don't tell anyone, but this made me go 'awww'

“Being ambiguously flamboyant really does help,” he says. “I’ve had so many people come up to me and be like, ‘I felt OK to come out of the closet after you said this.’ And I’m like...” He looks shocked, even overwhelmed. “When someone says that to me -- it’s not an event I’ve ever been through, so I don’t know what to compare it to. I don’t think I even understand how important that is to someone’s life.”

And when the Euro ad spot appears and it goes 'And the Germans are the ones who can celebrate now' I just want to yell at it to shut up. Jennifer Doyle is not helping me to get over it. Neither is Pitch Invasion. Great pictures, though. But this Ugly Betty marathon is helping a bit.

an amazing article by Jennifer Doyle on football and art and fans. Read it, even if you're not a fan of sports. It's amazing, seriously. She also has an interesting football blog, From A Left Wing.

and wanna know who's putting out free albums for internet frequenters like us? Tiny Echoes and Empires, that's who! go get 'em.

also, this is so not cool, Becks. stop eroding my faith in you.

Gerard's letter


*reluctantly lets go*

one of the reasons I love Couple? they have opinions and articulate them well. like this.

and all of CRon's 42 goals.

I'm still annoyed but damn that kid's amazing. (but I guess that's common knowledge by now.)

although - wait. Eamon Dunphy certainly does not agree.
