It's quite possible that I'm your third man, girl, but it's a fact that I'm the seventh son

You guys are the best! Thanks to a last minute donation from Josh, we're up to $105 on our trip fund. When this started, I was going to be thrilled if I managed to sucker people into giving me $10 so I guess you're all 10 times better than I thought you were.

In other London news, it looks like we're going to have some special events lined up for our trip. Carrie wanted to go to a club called Fabric while we're there and it turns out that Fatboy Slim (yes, that Fatboy Slim) will be doing a set for a benefit show on Thursday. Also, Damon Albarn (from Blur and Gorillaz) will be DJing, too. It's like the 90's have come back!

Tonight's review will be short. The first of Declan's albums in the letter "E" is Elephant by the White Stripes. It is my least favorite White Stripes album, and I don't even like the band as much as I think I should.

I mean, I feel like I should be a really big White Stripes fan. They're a little crazy and I love it when Jack White is sporting a jaunty moustache, but man, that whole guitar and drum thing just doesn't do it for me. Get Behind Me Satan won me back a little bit but I often just find their albums repetitive. It's good thing I didn't buy this album. Shawn actually just gave me a copy. I guess he knew what was coming.

Well...that sort of saves me from having to say that I thought this album blew. But, I can't resist saying how much I don't like the White Stripes.

I don't mind too much if other people like them - just as long as they don't make me listen to them.

And Eileen, I'm always glad to buy crummy albums and give them to you so that you don't have to go out and buy them. That's just the kind of friend I am.

Agreed on the White Stripes. But the Raconteurs album is really, really good, and you should get it if you don't have it already.
