Que Es Mas Macho!? (Audiophile Edition)

Amy Winehouse or Regina Spektor? (See samples in the audio snackbar)

Amy's got that big vampy sound, copping swagger from Etta James... flaunting her drug problem as she rekindles nostalgia for R&B's dangerous divas. If it doesn't make you dance, it ought to at least make you strut around your living room, dripping your PB&J onto the carpet.

Regina's got quirky creativity... she's PJ Harvey, Elvis Costello and Joanna Newsom rolled up in a crepe with an eggy bearnaise sauce. Her album is probably more varied than Amy's, and it clearly flexes more IQ points per composition. Plus her album cover doesn't feature an embarrassingly assy font.

Hard to say which is actually mas macho? ALCOA says, you make the call!

Regina Spektor rocks my world; your sample of Amy Winehouse hasn't made me think I would change my mind.

I think that font is called Newton-John.

And Jamie, thanks! I'll drop Sam a line.

Grammar slam aside(it's the intrinsic teacher-part of me I find difficult to control even in subjects in which I am not fluent), the game was fun.

BTW, how and why did you configure that "John and Oliaya said" response? What signifies that?

We are no longer john.
We are no longer olaiya.
We are now assimilated.
Resistance is useless.

Eww... you've turned into one of THOSE couples...

I refrain from comment on couple-dom. I know not of Regina. I groove on the scary Amy Winehouse thing. She is a thing to be grooved on. So there.

Note to self: probably best not to read blog bits and comment late at night when really should be finishing work so you can go to beddy bye and then be all incoherent and shit.

BTW: Laurie Anderson coming to Madrid. Considering attendance. Hmmm.
