jb@home Rockstar Choices

A few weeks ago I wanted to thank the top three jonobacon@home comment posters at the time (Adam Williamson, Ethan Anderson and Vadim Peretokin) for their contributions to the site. I offered to buy them a DVD or CD. Well, I figured it would be interesting to show what they picked, although I am not going to say who picked what.

So the choices were:

Mamma Mia! The Movie

DeVotchKa

Wall-E

I have no idea what in the name of all that is sweet and furry is DeVotchKa. Some kind of Progressive Vegetarian Grindcore? :P

Thanks guys!

    LOL! Mamma Mia! I must say while I absolutely hate ABBA, Pierce Brosnan can only rule in everything, right? I think I’ll have to see this myself… :lol:

    Devotchka is Russian word Девочка written using Latin alphabet. It means a girl.

    Wikipedia says: “DeVotchKa is a four piece multi-instrumental and vocal ensemble that fuses Romani, Greek, Slavic, Bolero, Mariachi (and many more styles) music with American punk and folk roots. They take their name from Anthony Burgess’ Nadsat word for “young girl,” which is itself derived from the Russian word (девочка) of the same meaning.”

    I have the “A Mad & Faithful Telling” Album, it always puts me in a very good mood

    WALL-E is enchanting… Yeah mate, that’s coming from me, it is actually enchanting… Now don’t make fun of me for thinking that. I’m still a tough geordie at the end of the day.

    Jono, seems to me you want to encourage comments on your blog.

    This is worth nothing if commenters can’t choose to get updates on the comment thread via email. In fact, even if you reply to this comment, I will never know :-).

    Imho the Rss feed is not effective. Get the ‘Subscribe to comments’ plugin for WordPress.

    “Vegetarian Grindcore” Gave me images of Quorn mosh pit… and in turn made me spit lemonade over myself. good times.

    Devotchka was used as the background music for a “Gears of War 2” commercial, a Microsoft game on Xbox 360.

    Devotchka is Russian word Девочка written using Latin alphabet. > It means a girl.

    Something you’d know if you watched Clockwork Orange, and if you haven’t, well that says something about you.
