Steve: No Elvis, it's a good idea, I'm just wondering if there's maybe something a little bit more glamorous for your fake death, I mean maybe you could take a bullet for the president?
Ricky: Huh, what and shit all over him? Just shit myself?

For what it's worth, I'd argue that Arular and Kala are two of the best albums released in the 00's. The latest stuff hasn't quite reached the same level as those two, but they certainly have their moments as well.

May I ask how you met her?

AGREED!!!!!!!!!! I'd nominate an Arular track if Bad Girls wasn't in my head

I could have nominated dozens, but I'll go for the song that introduced me to her in the first place.

I thought for a while we were only going to get SRs (obviously invalid) entry and this was heading for cancellation... but no! And I'll take Calum's post as a nom - here's a vid for it: -

With 1 day left less than 10 nominations have been made, so the "Double nominations" rule is in effect. People who have not nominated yet are free to post a nomination as usual - but those who have already nominated a track can also put forward another one. Entries still close tonight (just after midnight GMT). For reference, tracks already nominated are: -

Bad Girls
Come Around
Meds And Feds
Paper Planes
Sunshowers

Not my thing again this week, though I have voted as always (along with 2 other people so far).

(I may do a special round next week to loosely tie in with the Pilkipedia 10th anniversary.)
