Last week catch-up

I thought I'd do something clever. I'm not sure it works, but I've done it now.

Now, maybe I can find time for some Top 10s...

Edited after Roz complained - it was one long run, partly to communicate that I don't feel I stopped. But no point annoying lovely[scary] people like her

Manufactured Pop

I blame lupercal. Totally. If he hadn't told me about "Russian Schoolgirls in the rain" I'd never be watching the mpeg I am now.

What amused me, apart from the schoolgirls kissing in the rain is the website for the group which gives the rundown on the young ladies, the details of their manufacture. http://www.tatu.ru/eng/about.shtml. But, for your amusement some choice comments:

"Both Lena and Yulia sang in a children’s group Neposedy Yulia had to leave the group after she was accused of obscene behavior and corrupting other singers."
For the shooting the video "I’ve lost my mind" Lena had to lose almost 10 kg and Yulia had to cut her hair and color it black.
Girls haven’t got computers at home so they can look through the mail only at the producer’s office, but they don’t talk in chats and do not answer letters.
Recently new mail boxes for the girls have appeared where you may send all your wishes."
