The ‘blogsphere’ has been getting all over-excited about lady actor Zooey Deschanel and man music wotsit M.Ward, erm, making music. It’s not hard to hear why. The stupidly good-looking duo met making even more beautiful music for a film called ‘The Go-Getter’ in which young Zooey starred and the rest, as people like when to say when it’s late and they can’t think of anything clever, is history. Albeit very recent history.
Two points to make here, I think.
Zooey? What is going on with that name? Well… there’s a story in the paper today that, and I paraphrase here, parents are increasingly falling a long, long way, right from the very top in fact, of the stupid tree when it comes to naming offspring… It’s hard to fathom why you would punish your child with Samiul, Lora, Conna or An. There’s more than one Cam’ron in the UK… and there are apparently 23 versions of Isabelle (including Izzabella and Yzabel). Ten parents called their little girl Lily-, and yes, that’s not Lily-Rose, or Lily-May, just Lily hyphen. And a couple in New Zealand were stopped from calling their son 4Real because it contained a number. They called him Superman instead.
Second point? Completely forgotten. It’ll come to me.
– Yes. They do have a MySpace
– Doesn’t look like debut album, ‘Volume 1’, has a UK release yet, but you can the thing on import for an unbelievable £7. That’s CD, posted to you, from America, £7. And who says the music industry is in trouble.
