Hi Everyone!

Not much to say, other than you guys seem very busy!

Waar's al die boertjies heen, Jannie en vennote het julle almal die skip verlaat en laat nou ons pragtige eiland swig onder die soutie aanslag. Gelukkig vir die rooinekkies was Generaal Boer (ja, ek is bevorder) baie druk besig om die papiertjies in gelid te hou, en kon ek hulle nie in bedwang hou nie!! Die dag sal wel kom wat die groot Boer weer die eilande sal terug eis vir my en my mede patriote, idiote en sielsgenote.

Groete - die Boer!

Hi - me here with my humble opinion on what could be a sensitive issue for some... most of you will probably ignore it and buy it anyway... but at least then YOU'LL HAVE BEEN WARNED!
The new Kylie Minogue album "Body Language" is probably one of the worst albums this year! Goodness knows what she tried to do with this, but IT DOESN'T WORK! The first single "Slow" (not to bad and not too good) is the standout track, the other songs are mostly examples of some of the most uninspired music recorded this year... quite a disappointment (we loved her two previous albums "Light Years" and "Fever", but unfortunately THIS IS NOT LIKE THOSE!)
Anyway, not to be nasty, but just to warn you - if you see this cover in the stores - resist the temptation and AVOID buying the album, otherwise you'll most probably be DISAPPOINTED!

Well, I fell for it - and actually gave my copy away after one listen. Yes, it's THAT bad!

I agree - what a bad album! But have you seen the video for "Slow"? Kylie surrounded by loads of half-naked guys in speedos... YUMMY!!

Will’s album is also No.1 with runaway sales (47K+ & 21K ahead of Dido at No. 2), Westlife is down to No. 4 and Kylie’s album plummets to No. 27 (why am I not surprised?).

I have Wednesday's figures, which look pretty similar, except that BEP is now at #2, and I don't think Shane Richie will be able to catch up.

Thanx Popmaster

Yeah, quite interesting how releases in the UK get changed (not just the titles, but also the dates) and cancelled. Quite an onslaught of "Christmas" singles, isn't it?

True. A little advice to everyone out there - AVOID The Fast Food Rockers & Cheeky Girls (unless you are a huge fan)! These are crap beyond anyone's imagination, especially FFR, which sounds like it was recorded in a poorly set-up'd home studio somewhere in Mexico.

Instead, head straight for Delta & The Idols' versions of Happy Xmas (War Is Over) - both are superb, the latter only for Susanne Manning's fabulous contribution. (And, to think she bowed out of the Idol-race on Saturday, to make way for the Gareth look- & sound-a-likes - apart from Michelle who has one the worst singing voices I've heard [well... erm, since Gareth] and is there only because the judges & public feel bad about the way they treated Rik Waller last year).

Expect three versions of Happy Xmas (War Is Over) in the UK Charts soon as the original John Lennon will also be released, and gets heavily promo'ed as we speak.

Their latest smash hit comes with a GREAT video... so if you haven't seen the new "Miracles" by the Pet Shop Boys yet... you're in for a treat! (just wait for a few seconds - it should start automatically...)

Truly inspiring and uplifting lyrics... has anyone ever made you feel like these lyrics describe?

Miracles - Pet Shop Boys

Clouds drift away
when they see you
Rain wouldn't dare
to fall near you here
Miracles happen
when you're around
Somehow the grass is much greener
Rivers flow faster and cleaner
Being with you
no matter where
sunlight breaks through
and suddenly there's

A bluer sky
whenever you're around
You always bring
a bluer sky
a brighter day

Thunder is silent before you
Roses bloom more to adore you too
Miracles happen
when you're around
The sunset is deeper and longer
The scent of the jasmine is stronger
Stray dogs don't bite
Birds start to sing
Lightening daren't strike
You suddenly bring

A bluer sky
whenever you're around
You always bring
a bluer sky
a brighter day
Birds fly
even higher in the sky
Sun shines
It's a new day
