Cal Bears Football 82: The Play

Watching this video of The Play, including new footage of the mayhem on the field and the exchange of The Axe.

Was it necessary for the Cal fan to give John Elway the finger after he had just had victory snatched from his hands? No... But the rest of the celebration was beautiful.

Go Bears!

New Natalie Imbruglia!!!

Now I'll go on the record saying that Natalie Imbruglia is my favorite pop singer/songwriter, but I don't know how I feel about this song. This is probably the first Natalie Imbruglia song that I don't like.

Considering that I have all four of her cds and almost all of the cd-singles (for the b-sides), I can't believe that I've found a Natalie Imbruglia song that I don't like. But the bright side is that this song has brought a new video (which she looks great in as usual) and a new album is forthcoming. And with some luck I might even be able to score a promo banner for her new album.

Here's another new song "My God." I thik that it's better than the other song, but nowhere near anything that she's put out before.

Her new album comes out in the UK on October 5th. Though I am not feeling "Wild About It" or "My God" I am looking forward to the 1st single "Want" which is co-written by Coldplay singer Chris Martin and produced by Brian Eno.

"A bit annoyingly we've given her the best Coldplay song of all time," Martin said when in Australia in March. "Half of me wishes we still had it. But she sounds brilliant on it." (Here's the whole article.)

That sounds like a song that can make up for these sorry excuses for a Natalie Imbruglia songs. I just hope that they release the album in this country so I don't have to buy an expensive import again.

If I lived in the UK I could already pre-order it here. To read why I'm such a big fan of Natlie Imbruglia (besides her beauty and great songwriting) read my previous blog entry on her that I wrote in 07.
