I think every generation has a show like Degrassi, a teen soap opera which appeals to a cult teen audience and baffles everyone else as to what the appeal is. I tried Degrassi, quite specifically the Kevin Smith ones, and didn't get it at all. Just as if you show me an episode of the OC I'll make the same face a baby makes when you try to explain the theory of evolution to it. And yet, tucked away at the back of my DVD collection are all 6 seasons of Dawsons Creek.

Back on subject, I downloaded the live off of Jonathan Ross performance of 'The Lost Art Of Murder' by Pete Doherty which I listened to earlier. That's a good song.

I'd suggest that every generation has a different series of Degrassi.

I think you're probably right although I think there was a break which skipped mine. I'm not sure though. Either way, my point was more that these shows are more about the relationship you form with them atn impressionable period in your life. Dawsons Creek was Sunday morning television every week.

Or maybe it's just that I have a thing against Canadian melodrama. I don't know.

Well there you go - everyone can know understand why you hated Hostel Part 2 so much. The numerous Degrassi references were entirely lost on you therefore diminishing your comprehension of the entire spectical.

It's not that simple. Never watched Dawson's Creek, but was it not just a shiney teen soap. Degrassi, as per Grange Hill, was a series intended to present 'adult issues' to kids in a manner they could empasise with (porn, sniffing glue, teen pregnancy, mental illness, training bras, etc) and it broke a number of taboos, plus won plaudits for the way in which it handled its subject.

I may be wrong, but the original series was Degrassi Junior High, followed by Degrassi High. This was during the mid-80's and they were shown on BBC1. Then in the early 90's you had Degrassi Talks, which was in fact the Degrassi actos in a studio discussing issues with the teen audience. Now you have Degrassi the Next Generation. There was also a film showing what happenned to them when they left High School. These weren't shown here.

I bow to your Degrassi knowledge. I've only ever watched the show in passing, and the only episode that sticks in my mind is the one where some girl gets addicted to vitamin tablets someone told her under the pretence that it was some kind of mind altering drug.

For me... Tokyo Pinsalocks (imagine Bjork fronting CSS, in Japanese...) plus Asobi Seksu (MBV influenced New York band with Japanese singer)... oh, and the new Kate Nash album...

Sorry, I love Kate Nash.

for me its anything thats in my itunes library,but i usually choose the solaris soundtrack by Cliff Martinez such a superb score a good one to play in those early hours after a night out,or Mark Ishams Crash ost.

More popular music tastes 30 seconds to mars, i first got into them after watching the Core on dvd, Echeleon was used in the closing credits,Muse,Linkin Park, Tiesto damien rice,and the list goes on :) !

I'm firmly into Gogol Bordello at the moment, I'm LOVING their stuff!

Also.....
Wednesday 13
My Chemical Romance (or My Chemical Snowpants as they're also known)

I would like to point out before the ridiculing begins that it is purely because I'm going to see them both this year! (And I'm a sucker for the lead singers but sshhhhh!)
Have you heard of my friends capital letter and comma?

No? Well perhaps you should try them sometime... correct usage will do wonders for your social life.

Good choice, although I'd have to say my favourite KD album is Fatal Portrait.

Today so far it has been:
Blind Guardian - Tales From The Twilight World
Wolf - The Black Flame
Bathory - Nordland II
