I’ve uploaded all of the b-sides individually for download. For reference, they should have all been on the album. “Cherry Bomb,” most definitely. I’m a sucker for vocal distortion, and this one’s chock full of those unpredictable stutters. It’s like “Speakerphone” ‘s less homosexual cousin-in-law. “Do It Again” is a bit happy-go-lucky, and as I’ve mentioned, “Carried Away” makes acid tripping look tame in retrospect.
It’s the cover of Danity Kane‘s new album, Welcome To The Dollhouse! I don’t know why, but I root for Danity Kane. Maybe it’s because I was so invested in Making the Band. Maybe it’s because I like to watch Shannon fruitlessly adapt to the ruthlessly ghetto-fab vibe of DK that she is so obviously unable to replicate. But most of all, their songs (more specifically, their choice of producers) are fairly well made products.
Onto the new album cover. Once again, I remain disappointed from the band’s disinterest in sharing wardrobes with the lead from the same-named Indie movie from 1994. Blasphemy.
Despite all this, the cover is something above average. It’s not perfect, but I’m brought to days of DC3′s Survivor, and am aroused accordingly. Of course, it’s not perfect. The title font is atrocious, and Aundrea looks a bit straining while lying down. Also, Aubrey is a Photoshop Robot with voluptuous breasts. Actually only Dawn and Wanita (okay, so that’s her real name. She goes by “D. Woods“, but everyone knows she should be representing the Wanita) look fairly natural here. But overall, I’m rooting for them.
Okay, you can call this one a comeback. Britney has been shocking me daily by actively participating in positive decisions, starting with the completion two of the four hair styling appointments to rejuvenate her sorely damaged hair. Pictured above is the mid-result…Smashing! It’s nothing to write home about, but at least the tracks aren’t showing anymore. In the meantime, she’s been working out at the Millennium Dance Complex on the daily, often teaching classes with little children. Baby steps, no pun intended.
And so, with her father helming the conservatorship, her brother as a co-trustee, and her mother on good terms, Britney is finally being surrounded in the positive energy and love that she was so deprived of for nearly three years. Rumors are popping up that she’s preparing for a tour of major proportions, but my skepticism will not allow such nonsense to be taken into serious consideration. Regardless, I’m proud of my baby, like always.

College is taking its toll on me, but I refuse to let it take my dignity on the way down to ruin. I’m rebelling by making a blog post about Britney. An important one, at that. An official remix of Britney’s new single, “Break The Ice” has been released on Promo CD’s everywhere! Download it below because it’s hot fiya. Don’t let the initial beats fool you, it gets cowbell-fierce in a few moments, and then continues to break it on down.
P.S. Merry Valentine’s Day to all! May your vases be filled with roses and carnations and your chocolates without trans fat. (It’s non-digestable, you know?)
Alright, enough with the teaser photos and single covers. Here is the video in all its Elizabethan glory:
