Credit to my friend Curtis for pointing this one out.Â KT Tunstall.Â Also from Scotland.Â Check it out.
Yes, she's playing all the parts herself.Â Setting the loops live, as she plays.Â Here's another.
This is the most talented musician I've seen in a long time.Â Holy cow.

Don't look now, but I think we're in the middle of the biggest British Invasion since the 1960's.Â Not only are we getting some fantastic music out of the British Isles, but the best music these days is British.Â To whit: Joss Stone, Alabama 3, and now Sandi Thom.Â These artists have a sound that is more authentically American than the real thing.
Sandi's sound is bluesy and energetic at the same time.Â Fun lyrics, good range of styles, and great arrangements.Â Her first album has already gone platinum.Â Check it out.

Two thumbs up!
I don't know how this movie got on our Blockbuster queue. We didn't recognize the director or any of the lead actresses. The only connection was one of the minor characters was also a minor character in Run Lola Run.
The basic premise is two girlfriends becoming teenagers. There's a wonderful combination of little girl activities and sentiments, which give way to more and more adult themes. The characters are richly drawn and compelling.
Why would a guy want to see this movie?

Stealth, Dirty Love, and Legally Blond: The Musical. Guess which one of the three was good.

REVIEW / Vista launches / Should you buy it now? Here's what the new Microsoft operating system has and why you may want to wait
"We all know that Microsoft has been copying Macintosh since 1984," he said. "It looks like it, it acts like it, but it's not as good. Vista is the worst example of this I've ever seen."

I've these browsers in the last month so I thought I'd do a review of all three.

I know I've talked about this before but here it is again.Â Gimp and Photoshop are both professional-level photo editing programs.Â Photoshop is produced by Adobe Corporation and costs around $900 for the full program.Â Gimp is free and open-source.
So, which one is better?Â The answer: they're both the same, unless you're doing professional CMYK printing.Â If you don't know what that means, then the answer is simply: "they're the same."

Two thumbs up!
I was expecting this to be a typical piece of cute, sentimental fluff with normal-looking computer graphics.Â Oh look, big-town car is stuck in small town and learns to love them.Â Awww.
