... Even Ultravox.

Ultravox, circa 1982:

Muse, circa 2009:

How amusing it is to see everyone half my age is suddenly discovering early `eighties style power pop as if it's the latest and greatest new thing.

... Yeah, I'm reliably informed that these new boys Are Stephanie Meyer's Favourite Band (please don't ask me to elaborate), but I won't hold that against them. Once they get a bit older they could actually be rather good indeed.

Maybe Stephanie Meyer could 'Sing For Absolution'... not that she'd get any, but she might regain a smidgen of the rest of the literary world's respect for it.

I'd really just rather ignore the entire phenomenon. Unfortunately it's difficult when it's filling up the bookstores and movie theatres and everywhere - even the University Bookshop in Dunedin (which I'd have thought would have had more sense) had a big display on them the last time I visited.

Although this being cranky about the movie theatres may be just because I never had the chance to actually go and see Dances with Smurfs before it finished its run down here...
