Sister Act

KCRW's Morning Becomes Eclectic has turned me onto The Chapin Sisters, a 3-girl group of singers and their musical stylings. They're kind of like a cross between Sepultura and Bambi.* I recommend you check them out, especially their cover of Britney's "Toxic". Joy.

I found out their next show is going to be here in LA, a mere number of blocks from where DarthMoridin toils. Double Joy.

Are you still here? Click the link, dammit!

* They sound nothing like this. I just wanted to see if you were awake.

But who knew that Sepultura would have an official web site? The Brazilians are still in full effect. Yo. Dog.

I checked them out back when you mentioned them in response to one of my Britney posts. They don't play in NYC and you can't get their CD! What the hell, Chapin Sisters. What the hell.

Fear not, fMyster! They'll have an EP out soon. Also, if you're clever, you can download the songs from their web site. Their version of The Cure's "Boys Don't Cry" is a good one.

Who is that uncredited dude stiffly walking away from that explosion? Is this a new Terminator film? How do you not put Sigourney Weaver in your poster?

How to write like a gossip columnist

Anyone can do it!

Just keep in mind to never use your source's name, and always play up a celebrity's reaction to something using the following words:

Blast
Slam
Fuming

Here's an example:

"Latigo Flint blasted reports that his guns do not actually fire live ammunition."

Use them in combination!:

"Gil slammed fellow carnie Sal's insinuation that he got a bit too personal with a badger. "It was cold and he wasn't even there!" the one-eyed Whack 'em Cats operator fumed."

That's right, kiddies. Anyone can write a gossip column. And with the internet, anyone can publish it, too!

p.s. Don't forget to put a salacious slant on everything. And blow things out of proportion, too. In fact, you may want to change your middle name to that.
