    Oh, how I missed this section!
    Something nice/interesting/a bit controversial/always entertaining/sometimes hilarious to read while having lunch!

    That Robert Burton-Bradley is an ASS! Not that I know him.. ;)
    But I love Sat In Your Lap vid!

  3. Elizabeth says:

    Gwyneth cannot sing and I am appalled that she covered Kate’s song.

    • Rob't says:

      What’s interesting is that Ms Paltrow didn’t even try to reinterpret it. It sounds like an average karaoke night performance.

  4. Lane says:

    While I agree that the “Sat In Your Lap” video is a pretty bad (I love the song itself), I still watch it because she is incredibly hot in that video. No – I’m not that shallow and have loved Kate’s music, lyrics, voice and artistic choices for many, many (many) years. I’m just saying that although she is “beautiful” in most videos, I think she is particularly “hot” in that one in an early 80’s way – even with the roller skating bulls and stu-stu-stuttering edits still making me roll my eyes after all of these years.

  5. The article about Autotune is ripped off by a spam blog. It was originally written by Tom Ewing for the Guardian. The original is here: http://www.guardian.co.uk/music/musicblog/2011/apr/07/tom-ewing-auto-tune

    Please do not reward “Farmville Cheats and Codes” for stealing other people’s work by giving them incoming links.

      Thanks – I will delete the link, and note that I already linked the original in the “Directors Cut” news items. Thought I had seen that word “slathered” recently.
