The Pipettes, The Flaming Lips - White Christmas

Today I bring two different versions of "White Christmas," one by the Pipettes and the Flaming Lips. The Pipettes version is fantastic, emphasized with gorgeous vocal harmonies and a wonderful upbeat arrangement. It's short and sweet. The Flaming Lips version on the other hand, while interesting and untraditional, it sounds like its being sung by a bad Kermit imitator. I love Wayne, I really do, but this just isn't his finest hour. I've found a video of the song being performed live during 1999, and it sounds a little better there, performed on an actual megaphone. Maybe if you can shake the Kermit thing...but I just can't. Maybe I'll think of it as a forgotten song from the Muppet Christmas Carol. It's been far too long since I've seen that.

Thanks for the Pipettes song!
Also, I found your blog because I was trying to find the album art for Nice's self-titled album. I actually have the album on my computer if you want me to send it to you. It's pretty great.
I don't know much about them besides the fact that Randall Lee was in it; he's also associated with the Cannanes and Ashtray Boy, which are both bands worth checking out.

Anyway, my email address is glennie11 at yahoo dot com if you want the album. Just make sure there's nothing about penis enlargement or the fifty billion dollars I won in the Nigerian lottery in the subject line so I don't mistake it for spam.

Difficulty in achieving orgasm along with decline in sex drive is a common side effect of medications such as Xanax. Men under the prescription of anti-depressants are constantly searching for a safe and natural way of improving their desire for sex http://www.viagrathunder.com

So far it seems that generic Cialis works better and has more lasting effects than other drugs used against impotence, which makes this particular drug more appealing. If you are in need of a drug that can help you get easy, quicker and long lasting erections then cialis is the answer. People looking for cheaper alternatives can go for generic cialis but only when you are sure of the pharmacy. http://www.buy-cialis-online-now.com

Just after its launch in the market, viagra has created a niche for itself as the most effective medication for treating male erectile dysfunction across the world but alongside, the effectives of herbal Viagra products in dealing with male sexual problems cannot be ignored. Herbs and plants are, however, extensively used as sex stimulants worldwide and details present at http://www.pill-care.com inform you that the highly utilized sex boosters collectively known as herbal Viagra are namely, gingko biloba, yohimbe, horny goat weed and muira puama.

Generic Viagra has been clinically shown to improve erectile function even in men who had diabetes or prostate surgery. The pill contains this component that helps increase blood flow to the penis and may help men with ED get and keep an erection satisfactory for sexual activity.

I tried to download ad-aware after I got infected, but it will not let me open or download ANY antivirus software to quarantine or remove this spyware virus. It just keeps giving me popups that say I have been infected would you like to activate your security software and then ads like Viagra will appear. I don't know what to do since I cannot download and run an antivirus to remove this! PLEASE HELP! [url=http://gordoarsnaui.com]santoramaa[/url]
