But, but I decided that I was over you…

Gwen Stefani stop vexing me so!gwen-stefani-sweet-escape.jpg

When you decided to go out on your own, I admit I was curious and yet more than a touch reserved–because how often does a successful band send their lead singer off into a successful solo venture that doesn’t alientate the artist’s original and faithful fans?

So you came out with “Cool”, and I liked it. Annnnd I liked the video, so much so that it made me like the song even more.  But for that one song that I liked there were many (many) things I didn’t like, perhaps even hated, such as: “Hollaback Girl”, the Harajuku crap, the outfits (oh god the outfits), “Rich Girl”, that “Wind it Up” bullshit that killed Buggie‘s favorite “Sound of Music” song,  you know,  just to name a few.

Then I had to hear “Sweet Escape” this weekend and again last night and…I love it.  And I mean l u r v e it. I love everything about it.  The kicky beat, the cheesy yet sweet lyrics, the woo-yee-hoos that sandwhich those seemingly heart-felt verses.  Love. It. Love it so much that I am going to spend my last iTunes dollar to buy it. Gwen, you’ve demonstraded to me (see above examples) that it’s too much of a risk to purchase your entire CD, so I will just have to go in with my $0.99 every now again when you come out with the kind of stuff that put you on the map in the first place.

But girl, please, stop this yo-yoing!  I can’t take it. Do I hate you, or do I love you? I just don’t know anymore and it’s going to drive me crazy.

If I could escape and recreate a place that’s my own world
And I could be your favorite girl (forever), perfectly together
And tell me boy now wouldn’t that be sweet?

    I hate her. My hatred burns like a thousand Peeps on fire. She must either go back to No Doubt or die. There is no middle ground.

    She is the lame.
    She has not the talent.
    She is annoying and should go away.

    Two new studies show why some people are more attractive for members of the opposite sex than others.

    The University of Florida, Florida State University found that physically attractive people almost instantly attract the attention of the interlocutor, sobesednitsy with them, literally, it is difficult to make eye. This conclusion was reached by a series of psychological experiments, which were determined by the people who believe in sending the first seconds after the acquaintance. Here, a curious feature: single, unmarried experimental preferred to look at the guys, beauty opposite sex, and family, people most often by representatives of their sex.

    The authors believe that this feature developed a behavior as a result of the evolution: a man trying to find a decent pair to acquire offspring. If this is resolved, he wondered potential rivals. Detailed information about this magazine will be published Journal of Personality and Social Psychology.

    In turn, a joint study of the Rockefeller University, Rockefeller University and Duke University, Duke University in North Carolina revealed that women are perceived differently by men smell. During experiments studied the perception of women one of the ingredients of male pheromone-androstenona smell, which is contained in urine or sweat.

    The results were startling: women are part of this repugnant odor, and the other part is very attractive, resembling the smell of vanilla, and the third group have not felt any smell. The authors argue that the reason is that the differences in the receptor responsible for the olfactory system, from different people are different.

    It has long been proven that mammals (including human) odor is one way of attracting the attention of representatives of the opposite sex. A detailed article about the journal Nature will publish.
