    I listen to The Strokes now. Because I kind of fell in love with Julian a bit. I don’t know whether I had ever gone back and given The Strokes a chance if there hadn’t been his solo album (which I still think is more superior to whatever work he’s done with his band), but it’s his voice in there, so... couldn’t resist. And I don’t think he’s as pretentious as he tries to be in interviews. I held bad misconceptions of him due to them being associated with a certain "scene". He may be deemed guilty of giving birth to the modern “hipster movement”, but he himself seems genuine. At the end of the day, it’s not his fault that his style sprung so many unidentifiable copycats (for the record, I can’t stand the likes of Franz Ferdinand or Arctic Monkeys). I'm not an apologist for anyone in the music business; I tend to psychoanalyse and pick apart personas, and I like him. …

    Just one more month to go after this, then my ludicrous monthly assignments can finally calm down... I don't mind listening to all of this music, but writing, linking and tagging all of this stuff can be very tiresome. Still, November's been a good month thus far, but before I get started... X Factor, despite not having any really good contestants this year (Stacey is adorable but not strictly an international star, same going for Olly and Joe, Lloyd shouldn't have been in the finals in the first place really and Danyl is quite clearly so unlikeably loathsome with his big voice as to make me try to scratch my eyeballs out), is still as galvanisingly awesome as ever, what with everyone FINALLY coming around to appreciating how lovely and astute Dannii Minogue is compared to the others; Christmas is nearly here, which means I'll have to unearth both versions of Black Christmas for yuletide merriment (and on top of that both versions of the remake…
