Top Gear USA: A British Import You Won't Want to Miss

Posted By katie henry on Aug 7, 2010 at 11:13AM


When Top Gear announced they were heading to the States with a full throttle version of their popular BBC show I jumped for joy but remained skeptical. Would their winning formula of quick, dry humor translate to an American audience? Fast forward six months to the unveiling of the History Channel's sneak peek of the first season, I'm happy to report things are looking good. The faces are new — and might I add, incredibly adorable in a frat boy kind of way— but the premise is still the same, fast cars, fun missions, and miles of open road and hijinks along the way.

No word on who may be joining them along the way though, I have a strong suspicion they'll sprinkle in a few A-List Hollywood names much like their British counterparts. Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz were recently spotted taking a lap around the track for the UK crew, in which Tom set a new course record — it's nice to see he still has the need for speed. The trailer is a little more Dukes of Hazard, a little less James Bond but I have high hopes for this wild bunch! I'm throwing out my wish list of hot hunky men I would like to see whipping around the track: Bradley Cooper, Patrick Dempsey, Ben McKenzie, Ben Affleck, and Adam Brody of course! Who would you like to see get behind the wheel for some high speed racing action?

Joss Stone

Posted By Jennifer24 on Apr 15, 2007 at 2:20PM

Dear All,

I was first introduced to Joss Stone (aka Joselyn Stocker) back in 2003. I was at my Chapters Bookstore where they have integrated a music section (housed in a sort of cafe style building, in the center of the store), when I was browsing through the Jazz section of cd's. I know...cd's; an almost thing of the past what with downloading online (avec iTunes and the newest Ares). I happened upon Joss Stone, The Soul Sessions, and was blown away by her powerful voice. Thinking that she was a late commer to music, due to the sher maturity of her voice, I was amazed that she was only 16.

The Soul Sessions demands a serious look and feel for good music, with great beats, a dose of sass, and real heart and feeling thrown into each and every song, prime example, 'Some Kind of Wonderful'and 'I Had a Dream'. I read in an excert from an early Joss interview that when she sings, even in person she sings with no shoes on thus allowing her to feel unrestricted and really put feel into her performances...and by golly miss molly....can you ever feel her power:)

This cd is an excellent addition to any music collection.

p.s. Check out Joss' other two cd's 'Mind, Body, Soul, and the newly released 'Introducing Joss Stone' which will have you bopping along on the city bus....as it does for me. :)

cheers,
Jen

p.p.s Smile Cause Your Beautiful!

Arctic Monkeys- Favourite Worst Nightmare

Posted By Mainly Obsessed on Apr 7, 2007 at 8:23PM

The Arctic Monkey's are releasing their sophomore album, Favourite Worst Nightmare on April 24 (Not sure if that's UK only...sorry) But I'm kind of excited. Rock on indie rockers! They're a model for the success of peer-to-peer sharing.

Dirty Pretty Things

Posted By Mainly Obsessed on Mar 25, 2007 at 11:45AM

Here's a band that's new to me that might be old to you. Dirty Pretty Things founded by Carl Barat (Libertines) in 2005. I guess I'd describe them as Punk-Rock or Indie Rock. I like their sound; they have catchy melodies without drifting into the soft rock category. Here's two of their songs, "Deadwood" and "Bang Bang You're Dead" from their album Waterloo to Anywhere.

Odd Pairings

Posted By Mainly Obsessed on Mar 24, 2007 at 3:59PM

Well Timbaland's been everywhere lately. We've seen him with JT, Nelly Furtado, and now even Coldplay. The American hip-hop producer has been slated to produce some of the tracks on Coldplay's next LP. The band's front man, Chris Martin, chose Timbaland because he is looking for a "new sound". I personally can't wait to hear this album.

The Fratellis

You've heard of the Fratellis. They were featured on a recent iPod + iTunes commercial. The song you heard was called Flathead. They are an indie group from Glasgow. They have a more ballsy sound than anything I've posted before.....Here's a taste"

Paolo Nutini

Posted By Mainly Obsessed on Mar 24, 2007 at 1:29PM

I apologize for being away for so long! Paolo Nutini is a singer/songwriter from Paisley, Scotland. His influences include David Bowie, Damien Rice, Oasis, the Beatles, U2, Pink Floyd and Fleetwood Mac. He has a really soft smooth sound. Here is a sampling of New Shoes from his album These Streets.
