Low Level Scott Cain Appreciation of a Sensible Degree
Top 6 Reasons Scott Cain Rules:
1. He covered an Oasis song
2. He sings songs (well, not plural - YET) about Hilary Duff
3. He taught us that Crazy People Rock
4. He called his debut album 'Controlled Folly'
5. He inspired one of the most hilarious Cameron Adams comments ever
6. He sung a Coldplay song at his original audition
Britney & Liz-O-Vations
Ok, I'm obsessed with Britney Spears to the point of sickness at the moment. It's now hit 6 days straight of listening to nothing but her music. (I should be doing The Britney Life or something, really). And I don't think I'll be stopping any time soon.
It's kind of sad though...Listening to her old music and remembering that she was the best popstar ever, and then remembering what she's like NOW. I'm keeping the faith that she will be back though.
Anyway, a proper Liz-O-Vation is in store over the next few days! Yay! And it will most probably have a Britney theme. I don't really know what she has to do with Sky Mangel or the Beatles though...then again, they don't have much to do with each other either.
From tonight's Neighbours, care of Dr Kennedy:
'Life's like a journey. You hit a pot hole, you put your foot down and you move ahead'
I think they've recycled a script from this time last year and crossed out Stu's name, don't you?

(I had to scan my own copy of the Popstars 3 CD because I couldn't find any online. Yes I do own it and yes I do still give it the odd spin, thanks)
Anyway, forget last night's Australian Idol - yesterday it was all about Popstars 3 if you REALLY wanted to get to know your Idol finalists.
If, like me, you were sad enough to:
a) Tape every episode of Popstars 3
b) Keep them for almost 3 years
c) Spend all of Sunday afternoon re-watching them
then you would have also witnessed the following:
Anthony Callea's audition! If you are anything like me this would have caused you shriek in a mixture of horror/joy/excitement, and to rewind the tape back 5 times to watch the footage again.
Fact! Anthony used to enjoy the odd blonde highlight in his hair
Gabriel Cabrera! This was hilarious for so many reasons. 1, I remember this audition very well. Gabs quit his hairdressing job to try out for Popstars, then delivered a most horrifying audition piece. That's funny enough just on it's own, but it's double as high-larious when you also think about how well he did in Australian Idol (IE - NOT VERY).
Most importantly though, even though he was feeling a bit sick, he recovered at the last moment to sing in time. The show ALWAYS goes on with Gabriel!
A possible shot of Ricki-Lee! I'm not 100% sure it was her...I did pause the tape to have a closer look, but it still wasn't clear. I remember reading she tried out for Popstars, but I think she might have been too young for this series. Nevertheless, those few seconds she was on screen were the best moments of the entire show. She really showed the other contestants how it was done.
Now, let's talk about Scott Cain for a moment.
Do you know what, I KNEW there was a reason I'd liked him at the time. For one of his live performances he sung Don't Look Back In Anger! This automatically makes him better than every single other popstar/idol contestant, because no one else has ever done an Oasis song. Thinking about it actually, I'm surprised Marty never did...he could have literally gone to town with Live Forever.
Also, before it even GOT to the Oasis performance, I'd realised Scott was pretty bonza. I guess that's why
So many questions, why am I so real?
I've had Britney's Greatest Hits for almost a week now (I think the store put it out way early), so that is plenty of time to form the opinion that it is amazing. I didn't actually mean to get it, but then I saw it and it looked so sparkly, and it had a bonus disc, so I had to.
The cover looks shit on screen, but in fact it is not 'bogey green' but instead is metallic silver, which is reason enough alone to get it. Another amazing fact is that, on the back it SAYS that is has the 'darkchild remix' of Overprotected, but it's not! It's the original! I don't know how or why, but it is.
I really love (I've Just Begun) Having My Fun as well. So I think it's worthwhile to buy even if (like me) you have all her albums. It's the ONLY cd I've had in my player for the past 5 days straight. It really is pop perfection.
