Its good news. the Guardian reports: British physicists and official timekeepers around the world will insert an extra second or "leap second" into the new year countdown to bring the most accurate atomic clocks in line with the astronomical day. As the saying goes "every second counts" so use your second wisely ;o) Happy New Year Everyone!

My favourite player had a magnificent game on Sunday - he ruled the park thanks to Rafa Benitez finally building his whole team formation around his star player. With Gerard on form like this you don't need a striker (even of Torres' quality). But as my mother always used to quote me from the Bible: "pride comes before a fall." Maybe pumped up from his amazing individual performance against Newcastle (5-1 was the final score) maybe with the opposition fans cheers(!) still ringing in his ears Gerard went home to…

Some might think this is the sign of the end of democracy! Tonight's victory in the Strictly Come Dancing final of Holy City star over the former S:CLUB 7 singer has really niggled me. Against the expert opinion of our panel of judges the public have voted for Tom Chambers and Camilla Dallerup when it seemed clear to this biased blogger that Rachel Stevens and Vincent Simone were clearly the better dancers. It seems that the John Seargent Factor looms on where a person's popularity trumps their ability. Some say…

What does the song Hallelujah mean ? Whose version is best Jeff Buckley or Alexandra?
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 12-18-2008
Well it looks like for the first time in UK Chart history the same song is going to be number one and the number two . And it will be a christmas number one and two at that! The song in question was a work of art and a labour of love from Leonard Cohen who apparently made dozens of attempts over the course of a year to write this song. Whether you love the Alexandra version straight from her X factor winning performance or if it's the connoiseur's choice…

Here's my list of favourite CDs of the year. 1. Day and Age the Killers I have been a big killers fan since the Mr Brightside single on Hot Fuss. Unlike many of the reviewers I quite liked Sam's Town especially songs like: Can you read my Mind and When we were Young. I initially got agitated about the "Are we human or are we dancer" lyric from the latest single Human - but it such an amazingly put together song - with the rest of the lyrics being so…

[youtube=http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=4jgswWMlUN8] thanks to Simon Fogg who put me onto this new U2 video as they cover a classic Christmas Rock and Roll song by Greg Lake. What do you think he means.. Hallelujah Noel be it Heaven or Hell The Christmas we get we deserve? That must have been a hard lyric for Bono to sing when you compare it with Band Aid's "well tonight thank God it's them instead of you..." Christmas Blessings Krish
