Today's BGLU News by Toya

Scott Weiland

You know I have been loving Scott for quite some time now. I don't know what it is with me and heroin addicts but God bless them. Scott Weiland of Stone Temple Pilots was recently arrested after being pulled over for driving at night with no lights on. They found illegal drugs in his car and have yet to disclose what drugs these were. Chances are high that these weren't Flintstone chewables. Boo, get it together. For me, for our children. I'm kidding. Get well soon. Hell, get well NOW!

Did yall see Ross kiss the fool out of Charlie on Friends!!? The moment of truth came last Thursday night when Ross Geller put his thing down on national TV and hooked up with honorary BGLU Aisha Tyler. Word has it, her character will be around for a while. Now we know America is not ready for this. This is the final season of Friends and we all know that Ross has to end up with Rachel. But in the meantime, do your thing, Ross. Do it well.

Don't Sleep on This Record: Anberlin's Blueprints for the Black Market (Tooth And Nail Records)
Tia and I are absolutely in love with the new Anberlin record, Blueprints for the Black Market. You want to be down, trust us. "Ready Fuels" is THE song of the Summer and is so eighties, it sounds like it should have been in the last fight scene in Karate Kid. "Hey Johnny, give him the body bag! Yeah!". I have seen them categorized as Emo which irritates me to no end because this album is clearly, solely rock. The lead singer does not sound nearly whiny enough to be Emo. Lead vocals haven't been this good on a rock record for some time now. Anberlin will be on tour this summer with Further Seems Forever (my fave) so be sure to check them out.
