Bookmarks: Some stuff to read on the internet

Two lists [via Largehearted Boy].

First, New York details why I Kissed A Girl isn't the song of the summer:

5. Actually, everyone seems to hate it. "I Kissed a Girl" hasn't gotten a decent rap remix, but it sure has been parodied and ironically covered. Among the more notable were Max Vernon's version that left all pronouns intact, "I Kissed a Squirrel," and another parody with fart jokes. The Song of the Summer should be the coolest kid in class, not the awkward one that everyone picks on.

Then, the Guardian lists the ten best uniforms in music. Or nine best, and this:
8 Bay City Rollers
Three-quarter length jump suits (see below) with signature tartan trim, sir? Pop-perfect mix of Scotland's '74 World Cup squad and Kubrick's Droogs.

That uniform list is rubbish. It's like they've just listed the first few uniformed bands that popped into their head. The Residents? The Polyphonic Spree? Hell, bloody Slipknot have more interesting uniforms than half the bands on that list (except of course, Devo, The Village People and Kraftwerk)

I mean The Hives? They wear suits. Isn't that like listing every band pre-the mid sixties?
