The miniature arrow of truth

I was going to do one of those graphics which lists things beside a gigantic arrow in order to illustrate how some things are better than others. But I'm too stupid to work out how to put links in it.

So, in descending order of amazingness, I present "A big list of things I have stolen found on the ineterents".

:: Amerie's new single, Gotta Work.
Amerie now has two singles that sound exactly like Beyoncé's Crazy In Love. This is no bad thing, as Crazy in Love rips the shit out of every record released since, oooh, Dire Straits' Brothers In Arms (nb: joke). Here is an Mp3 for the curious [Amerie - Gotta Work]. I will give a big wet kiss to anyone who can tell me what the sample is.

:: Bjork dresses up for her new album cover.

I want a costume like this, and I want it now bitches.

:: Charlie Brooker on those irritating Mac and PC ads.
"The ads are adapted from a near-identical American campaign - the only difference is the use of Mitchell and Webb. They are a logical choice in one sense (everyone likes them), but a curious choice in another, since they are best known for the television series Peep Show - probably the best sitcom of the past five years - in which Mitchell plays a repressed, neurotic underdog, and Webb plays a selfish, self-regarding poseur. So when you see the ads, you think, "PCs are a bit rubbish yet ultimately lovable, whereas Macs are just smug, preening tossers." In other words, it is a devastatingly accurate campaign."

:: Timbaland's Shock Value album.
Half of it borders on genius. Half of it is the violent misogynystic rambling of a deluded egomaniac. Buy Robyn's album instead.

:: Halle Berry gets a Hollywood star.
Man, she really loves that sidewalk.

Or maybe she just fell over. Who knows?

:: Clive James on 24.
"How hard can an actor grit his teeth before they shatter? Kiefer Sutherland grits them to the point where you imagine a Ming vase in a vice. When will they explode?"

:: Alanis Morisette's April Fool joke.
She did an "hilarious" cover version of the Black Eyed Peas' My Humps which
a) Is a year late
b) Labours the point somewhat
c) Makes you yearn for the original.
