...yo dre drop the verse

Oh, hey, what's this? A new header? Could it be?
As is custom, I will now proceed to dissect this new "masterpiece". I was in mad, passionate love with my old header, and I still do prefer that one, but I was very ready for a change. This one has a "notorious celebrity holding alcohol" theme, though Keith is, as always, the exception to the rule. The picture of Amy Winehouse taking a shot while holding a baby is one that never ceases to amuse me. I love how happy Jimi Hendrix looks in that picture and Cory Kennedy looks rad as always. Keith Richards isn't holding any alcohol, but the beauty of this picture is the shirt. The "play on, playette" is a reference (of course) to one of my favourite songs, "No Diggity" by Blackstreet. The "you're either on the bus or you're under it" is a little complex. It's paraphrasing the famous Merry Pranksters' use of the phrase "on the bus" as a state of mind, and I've heard "on the bus or under it" in reference to my beloved P-Funk.

Welcome to the inside of my brain.

Alcohol and rockstars are wonderful together. I like the header. Last time I made a new header, I spelled Confidential wrong. It was up for like, a week. I was embarassed....
And now we're friends on the space. Nice.

I think I could get lost in your head. Winehouse is C-R-A-Z-Y.

Oh Amy....
I am impressed that that baby looks so comfortable, I'd be terrified if I were him.

The irony in the Amy picture is great. But I must say, I've never been able to get on the whole "Cory Kennedy" thing. I depise people who just party for a living while doing some modeling on the side or something, and often live off of their famous parent's income. Even though Cory's parents aren't famous, she still bothers me, but that's just my opinion.

lol amy and the baby will always make me laugh

ellie said...

You always find the pic that's perfect for your blog. I don't know how you do it.

Very cool.

oh god amy

Alix d'Laire said...

ok, imho best header ever. Keith Moon asks a question best answered by, "The one guy alix would screw no questions asked, definitely in the 60s and quite possibly still now". Oh Amy Winehouse! Thou crackest me up. Plus tje pranksters... Mountain Girl equals God.

Mariel said...

that's awsome... LOVE that picture of Jimi Hendrix

Alix d'Laire said...

I think this is your best header yet. Keith's question can be answered by "The one person Alix would screw no questions asked, definitely in the sixties and probably now as well." Seriously though well done. Amy, thou crackest me up as well.

Alix d'Laire said...

I may have accidentally commented twice...make that three times now...sorry. *cringe*

Aretha said...

I love your header but I think you should put some real masters picks like George Clinton and Prince on it too

riz said...
