☆ Thumbs’ Up to “the imdb”; What I’m Listening To/Things You Should See ☆
First off, thanks to all of you wherever who did whatever, whenever that made my imdb stats jump so high this week.

Then– of course, what’s a little…screen-saver/site-scan shopping?
Granted, I can’t fight off the lyrics that come to mind of someone who truly understands the meaning of the word irony: Lily Allen. Her demo “I Don’t Know” is such a strychnine-soaked smiley-faced commentary on contemporary society; rarely a day goes by that the sardonic lyrics don’t get queued up on the ol’ iPod.
