Today’s Noelism: Noelpocalypse

18 February, 2011

I sometimes leave the room with a, ‘John Lennon was an idiot’, just to watch the explosion,” Noel once said about how to stir up his brother.

This is the greatest Noelism ever committed to print.

Liam Sounds Sane. For Once…

24 January, 2011

From Danger Bird Records:

“There was never any fear with Oasis,” says Liam, “You knew people were going to dig it because it was Oasis. But I’ll be honest, when the gigs come round with Beady Eye, we’ll be shitting it, because it’s a new thing. We’ve been rehearsing the live set for the last two weeks though and it’s sounding great. The template for Beady Eye is the same one we had for early Oasis. Put out a lot of great singles not on the album with great B-sides, keep it flowing. What happened with Oasis was you’d end up on an 18 month world tour and you wouldn’t have any time to put new music out. When you get big, it slows you down. When you start out fresh, it’s all about the tunes. And remember, we’re a new band, we’re not going to get above ourselves and start thinking we can play stadiums and arenas, we don’t want to jump the gun, we want to go out and do small gigs, get back into that vibe then do another album, and take it gradually, stay in the moment of being a new band.”

That sounds… level headed. Normal, intelligent, in fact. Maybe Oasis splitting really was the best thing for everyone…

I Knew There Was a Good Reason…

For being proud of my Romanian heritage:

Yes, that’s right, an overly sexualized advertisement for car insurance featuring women in their underwear bouncing on aerobics balls with lesbian undertones. That’s what my life has been missing!

This is Actually Good…

10 January, 2011

I don’t care that it’s basically a rehash of “All You Need is Love”, or any other middle-late Beatles songs for that matter. As generic as it is, this is a top tune. Maybe Beady Eye’s new album will transcend being “tolerable” and actually be good. Only the time will tell.

Also, is Andy Bell giving a throwback to his awesome specs from 1994 Glastonbury?

That’s A Lot Better…

3 January, 2011

I dare say that this is much better than Liam and Co.’s first single…

Liams Lost It Completely…

14 December, 2010

I don’t think he cares in the slightest about what he says in interviews anymore and, yet, instead of coming off as “devil-may-care” Liam from the good ol’ days, he comes off as a near-geriatric shell of his former self, who talks a lot and doesn’t have a lot to say.

From NME:

Liam Gallagher has told NME that he thinks Beady Eye’s debut album ‘Different Gear, Still Speeding’ contains songs “as good as ‘Definitely Maybe’, if not better”.

I miss Noel…

Christmas Awesomeness…

29 November, 2010

Can’t wait to see the new viddy from Coldplay. Digging the swinging 6/8 beat at the end there.

#grillventure begins…

Beady Eye.

10 November, 2010

I’m not saying its bad. I’m not saying its fucking terrific, either. At least its music. I look forward to hearing more.

For the Last Time…

10 November, 2010

Lesbians area a good thing. Jeez…

From Melbourne, Australia.

On the night of her school formal, Hannah Williams found herself all dressed up with nowhere to go.

After inviting friends to her home for ”pre-drinks”, the 16-year-old stood on her doorstep and watched her classmates file into the darkness to attend one of the highlights of the school year.

ress and went to bed.

A few weeks earlier a teacher had told the year 11 student she couldn’t attend the dance with her 15-year-old girlfriend, Savannah Supski. She was asked to bring a male instead. ”It made me very upset. I thought it was unfair so I didn’t go,” she said.

”I put a lot of effort into trying to fix things. I had meetings with principals; looked through the Equal Opportunity Act; all my friends put posters up around the school and the teachers ripped them down. There was an easy solution; they just needed to let me go with my girlfriend.”


Blood on My Netflix DVD Part II

4 November, 2010

Here’s a close up.

Blood on My Netflix DVD?

4 November, 2010

I like blood and guts in my movies, not on them…

Does that look like blood on the sleeve holding my Netflix disk? If it is, WTF? Also, how do I submit a complaint about it, it doesn’t seem to be an option under any of these subjects:

Maybe Punks Not Dead Yet…

22 October, 2010

Keith Morris’, of the Circle Jerks, “I Don’t Belong”. This video conjures up the question of why there isn’t more politically charged punk making its way into the mainstream right now? Hell, politically charged music in general, for that matter. You’d think there’d be more kids running around with spiked hair, bad DIY dye jobs, wallet chains and a “fuck-all” attitude raising hell in the suburbs of Cincinnati or Omaha like in the 90’s. Unfortunately, though, the truth is, there isn’t. The baby boomers are resembling an attitude closer to this than the younger generations with their tea party bull shit. And, you know what? That makes me sad.

What’s up with that youth of today? (Also a great band).

What the Hell is this?

21 October, 2010

I don’t know whether to get aroused or run away?

Stop Looking At My Moms…

11 October, 2010

This kid has more flow than most MCs twice his age. And respect for the ladies…

Man Woman Wild…

20 September, 2010

I used to watch this show called World’s Most Extreme Homes. The host was cool, she was cute and British and made the show more interesting.

I’ve often wondered whatever happened to her, as she was a good host I assumed she was doing something in Britain and I wasn’t able to see it/hear about it.

Well, the host was none other than Ruth England and I’ve just learned that she is part of the husband-wife team that hosts Man Woman Wild on Discovery Channel. This is cool, as she is a cool lady. I am now a bigger fan of this show than before. I was always more of the Man Vs. Wild kind of guy, but I can fit this into my schedule.

Happy Birthday, Liam G.

20 September, 2010

Happy Birthday to Liam Gallagher, who turned 38. Old bastard…

Ya, That Seems Fair…

Son of Murdered Father Suspended for Having Red Eyes [From Crying]

Oh, paranoia and zero-tolerance, what would the world be like without you?

Can Advertising be Art?

9 September, 2010

Based on this ad by Guy Ritchie and starring Jude Law and some hot chick, for Dior, I’m going with no. But it can be cool. However, this Dior ad is no where near as cool as this ad:

Today’s Noelism…

9 September, 2010

“My days of waking up with someone else’s chandelier in my bed are over. I’ve got kids now, I’m more chilled out.”

Another Celebration…

31 August, 2010

Here is another random-ass goal celebration from Icelandic team Stjarnan. They’re getting weirder and weirder. This one was better than the last one, though, so whatever, its funny.


26 August, 2010

I shall supply no caption for this…

Haha, Stupid Hipsters.

25 August, 2010

This is from the beer menu at one of my favorite local haunts, Rocks. Its always been sarcastic, but this was a great addition to the menu.

Walking Dead…

25 August, 2010

This is the new trailer for “The Walking Dead” from Frank Darabond, dude who directed Shawshank Redemption. Am I the only one getting a 28 Days Later vibe from the first half of the trailer? I’m not saying its a total rip off, its from a graphic novel, but 28 Days Later did this concept perfectly 8 years ago. Regardless, I will be watching the premier on AMC on Halloween. Scratch that, I’ll be watching it the next day with a hangover.

Not Nearly As Good…

17 August, 2010

But here’s another goal celebration from Icelandic team Stjarnan.
