I *heart* New Order
Wow, did you guys see New Order sing the Joy Division classic Love Will Tell Us Apart on the Kimmel show? If you didn't get a chance to catch it, check it out here. Al's fave and a timeless classic. They just had a concert here in the Bay Area. I didn't watch it coz I saw them already when they came out with the Republic album in 1993 or 1994 (gosh forgot the year) with my date and former co-worker at the time at the Shoreline Ampitheater in Mountain View. Two awesome bands, 808 State and The The, opened for the New Order then. I heard that the Chemical Brothers were gonna open this time around. Saw the bros twice in the late 90's and they were always such a trip.
Also, I suddenly remembered few days ago when Al pinged me via YM that Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes were a couple now. At first I thought he was joking and how did he know that when he's not into celebrity gossip at all? Funny, but he said he saw it in the news and I still thought it was a rumor. I guess it's true after reading it everywhere. But what was truly funny is the fact that Al went out of his way to ping me at work with this 'important news' of his - and mind you, he ended it with Btw, Tina Fey is also pregnant! He cracks me up!
