Amoeba & Paul

Okay, you caught me. I was surfing the celebrity cheese as I'm ought to do and came across this...

Paul McCartney -- No Love for Jennifer Love? - TMZ.com

When I stopped laughing (oh to be Kenny G's girl...sigh), I realized, wow Amoeba got Mc Cartney to play at a in-store show! Impressive. I hadn't seen the Hollywood store until January of this year. Its huge! Good for Amoeba! I hope this helps sales. I hear they treat their employees pretty well and have a rockin' Holiday party that in the past has included big name private shows.

Patti Smith 12

What is Patti Smith's 12? Welp, its her recent collection of 12 cover songs. I picked it up from the library (you know that place known for books?). My favorite is her take of "Smells Like Teen Spirit." Check out the Spinner article below, it has the video featured.

Oprah Winfrey: From media mogul to store owner - USATODAY.com

Oprah Winfrey: From media mogul to store owner - USATODAY.com

Another footnote to my fascination with Oprah. I wonder if something like this will propel her fame or repel people who think its overexposure? She's Oprah though is there such a thing as overexposure? You'd think the magazine would have qualified, but that's doing really well.

I guess in essence its going to be akin to the NBC store in New York.

This is Amy Winehouse; this is Amy Winehouse with a Mirror Shard

Friends of mine recently bought me tickets to Amy Winehouse's San Francisco show in September as a birthday present! I'm so excited! I hope that she stays sober enough to actually show up and sing.

If you aren't familiar with Amy Winehouse. She sings in that wall of sound, girl group, throw back kinda way. Her album Back to Black is brilliant. Sample her music either on her official site or here.

Then stay tune, in September I'll give you an update!
