Talk about going to the extreme

Perry Farrell has formed a new band with Extreme's Nuno Bettencourt on guitar and No Doubt's Tony Kanal on bass. They are called Satellite Party.

Out of respect for Farrell (and as difficult as it is), I am reserving judgement for now.

What? no Flea? I saw Dave Navarro on the INXS show and cringed. Listen to Nothing Shocking and put a candle in the window for all of them.

Seems I heard Dave Navarro has a mom or some other close relative in Austin and comes and sees her often. News to me. I've not been privy to any Navarro sightings.

And speaking of privy, I would caution all of you to avoid having Kung-Pao shrimp for brekkie.

This mention of INXS reminds me of Paula Yates. I always liked her because she believed, as I do, that Michael Hutchence died, not of suicide (as the police thought), but of auto-erotic asphyxiation, seeking, as it were, "a new sensation."

Anyway, I heard a cool fucking story about her funeral. After the main part of the ceremony, her pallbearers marched up to her coffin and picked it up while her cover of "These Boots are Made for Walking" played.

The men lifted the coffin to their shoulders, and when the song got to the point where she says, "Are you ready boots?...Start walkin.'," they stepped off at that exact second and carried her out of the church. that must've been pretty cool to see.

Forgive me--I have so much free time.

I must continue on the Paula Yates topic. Triple J fave Pete Doherty is the cover boy of the latest issue of "Interview," and I read (not in "Interview") he gave a very uneven performance at Live 8.

He later attributed this to the fact that apparently Peaches Geldof, one of Bob Geldof's oddly-named daughters (by Paula Yates), ran up to Doherty just before he was to take the stage with Sir Elton John, grabbed his ass, and made all sorts of nasty suggestions in his ear. The whole thing left him, to say the least, terribly distracted, especially since Live 8 was Peaches's daddy's operation.

Miss Geldof has since vehemently denied doing this.

Happy birthday, old man! How many rings are there through your trunk?

maybe it's too early to say, but perhaps a better name for that outfit would be DOUCHE ROCKET!

This really belongs further down on the page, but no one ever seems to check back on the older posts, so here goes:

Bankston, let's just say I'm old enough to be your brother.

Well, crap. Just check aldaily.com for a link to an article about that Madonna and Child painting mentioned earlier.

Huh. I would've figured you were young enough to be my son had I sired any in adolescence.

What are your celebration plans? You gonna get smashed on mojitos or just hang out at home with your best gal pals and eat cookie dough and talk about boys? (Yes, JW, I stole that last bit from "Buffy.")
