I love this band more than I love unicorns.

and I love unicorns... a lot.

The band I'm referring to is, of course, Cobra Starship.

I love Cobra Starship lots, they're my second favourite band (because, of course, nobody beats Garbage).

I've seen Cobra live twice now, and I love them a ridiculous amount. As you can see from the above picture, the band consists of 4 boys (Gabe, Nate, Suarez & Ryland), and one ridiculously hot girl (Vicky-T).

I don't really know what to say about the band, other than they're freaking awesome, and you should definitely listen to them if you haven't already. They have at least one song suited to everyone, and basically, they're better than you.

Myspace, Youtube & Google them. Now.

Personal favourite songs: Smile for the Paparazzi, Angie & Prostitution Is The Oldest Profession (And I, Dear Madame, Am A Professional)

Go. Now. Go support the #25 on my Hot 30 list ;-)

Bye. x

Come on babe, why don't we paint the town?

Well hello there.

Tonight, I went to see Chicago starring the all-round awesome guy, Jimmy Osmond & Emma Barton (Eastenders' Honey Mitchell) and I thought I would share with you how INCREDIBLE it was.

I've seen Chicago on stage about 4/5 times before, and I've seen the movie so many times that I've lost count. Tonight's performance was the best by far.

As expected, Jimmy Osmond was fantastic. I knew he would be, because... he's Jimmy Osmond. I'm not really the biggest Osmond fan, although I appreciate that they're a big deal, and they're pretty cool (Merril is my favourite, I strongly dislike Marie). He was a brilliant Billy Flynn, proving that even an Osmond can play sleazy.

Emma Barton was, in a word, sensational. I'd known before tonight that she was a very talented singer and actress, but was unsure how she'd perform. She absolutely blew me away. She made a brilliant Roxie Hart, and was the best I've ever seen. (My biggest regret is not seeing Jill Halfpenny as Roxie!)

The rest of the cast, I'd never heard of before, but I was very impressed with Twinnie Lee Moore, who played Velma Kelly. She's very talented, and definitely somebody I would like to see perform again. Also, she is absolutely stunning. Not really relevant, but I thought I'd throw it in there.

I was generally impressed with the cast, although I felt that the actress who play Mama Morton (I've forgotten the actress' name now, and can't be bothered to get the programme) didn't suit the role. She was talented, with a very good voice, but I felt she lacked the sass that the character calls for.

Anyway, my point it, if you get the chance to see this cast perform, you should. They were fabulous and I had an amazing night.

And remember... stay away from jazz and liquor, and the men who play for fun!
