The Week That Was: May 9, 2008

I took this pic in Italy last month, thinking it was very "springtime." That's right -- look the F out, Western art world!

Jeez, y'all are suckers for schmaltz! Earlier this week I did a somewhat personal, nostalgic "Throwback" post ("These Are Days You'll Remember"), and between the e-mails and comments, it seems folks like knowing D'luv has a beating heart.

So, for those interested, below are five more similar posts from the past three years -- in descending order of hotness -- all of which are personal stories wrapped around the music of the era they occurred during.

At the very least you'll get to see tragic pics of young D'luv:

* Someone Who Won't Leave Me Feeling...
* It's Tearin' Up My Heart
* Don't Walk Away, Boy
* Ride On Time
* Back When Bernard Sumner Was Hot

Other than that, Madonna announced she's embarking on the "Sticky And Sweet" tour, but fuck that humorless old transvestite -- the real tour to see this summer is Pete Burns from Dead Or Alive, who's doing gigs (with Human League) in the U.S.!!! Holy Jesus, it'll be more enlightening than when that geriatric queen, the Pope, came through last month!

Here are the dates that were announced for Pete Burns' "Regeneration Tour":

July 26 New York City @ Live Nation
July 27 Farmingdale, NY @ Crazy Donkey
August 2 Las Vegas, NV @ Planet Hollywood
August 4 San Diego, CA @ Viejas
August 5 Los Angeles, CA @ Gibson Theatre
August 7 Salt Lake City, UT @ Usana Theatre
August 9 San Francisco, CA @ Mezzanine
August 11 Saratoga, CA @ Mountain Winery

Clay Aiken, who posed for this lovely photo over at Planet Hiltron, released a new album this week, On My Way Up There or Here's My Vagina or something. There's really not much to say about her that hasn't already been worded gloriously in Chart Rigger's Clay Aiken banterview. You can find it and all past banterviews in the sidebar drop menu.

    The geriatric queen, the pope!
    That is SOOOO funny, maybe because I'm Catholic!

    Glad you got a chuckle, John... hopefully you didn't feel the guilt that came along with it.

    Is this run by a 12 year old in middle school? Seems so. How idiotic. Some people will do anything for attention. And I'm not referring to Clay Aiken, who has more class than whoever posts these things.
