CHICK NIX FLICKS' PICK: We're starting to worry a little that the Dixie Chicks are hitting on us or something - after all, short of stopping making the country-music-by-low-numbers they do and starting with some Broadcast type ambient soundscapes, they could hardly do more to try and ingratiate themselves with us. Hot on the tail of being just about the only (non-politically active) Americans to actually attack Bush before the Iraq war, they're now about the only people in the entertainment industry to speak the truth about Arnie's bid to become King or Superhero or whatever the part he's reading for in California right now is. Emily Robinson spoke to a German paper, saying "America should be governed by people who have a clue. I hope he doesn't win." Which is, of course, spot on and right.

As a footnote, Ananova suggest the post-Bush "outburst" banning of the Chicks music from some US stations was "amazing", which suggests the people who report for ver Nova don't really know very much about the American media at all.
