Video Premiere: Fischerspooner "Never Win"
At the risk of turning into a Fischerspooner fansite, I highly recommend the
new video for Fischerspooner's forthcoming single "Never Win" that was released today. I wrote earlier
about the duo's inspiration for the song. It is a brilliant video that combines the duo's sense of experimental art with a glossy pop
finishing. Counter culture goes mainstream. Check out a goofy Casey performing
as the lead singer in a band and getting hit by a
bottle. Well-done guys.
Dannii Minogue Performs at Gay Day
While Kylie Minogue is recovering from breast cancer treatment at home in Australia, her sister Dannii will be headlining the 7th Annual Gay Day at Paramount's Great America tomorrow. A portion of all proceeds will benefit the San Francisco Aids Foundation.
Danni shared her compassion and concern for her sister in a public statement, "This news is very
upsetting. However the cancer has been diagnosed at an early stage and
we are all very optimistic that everything will be ok. We’re all very
thankful for the endless messages of love and support Kylie has been
receiving – I know all your kind thoughts will mean the world to her as
she gets better."
"Kylie's been touched by the many fans who have asked if they can send cards or flowers," her sister adds. "She has suggested that instead well-wishers might like to make a small donation to the Cancer Council in her name."
Meanwhile, Dannii is in the final stages of recording her much-anticipated fifth album. The first single "You Won't Forget About Me" was released in Europe last year.
