The still, tranquil quiet of the Magic Box is momentary broken by the sound of the fabric of time and space being split as though cut by some subtle knife. Through the portal that has been open steps the Box's warlock. He pauses for a while as if acknowledging some invisible "silence" sign before striding toward the comforting velvety cloak of the darkness beneath the stairs.
Rack quietly ponders the question at is usually the reserve for late night DJs, namely "is there anybody out there?"

Well I guess that everybody must be off leading busy lives or enjoying themselves.

Anyways, I wish that I had some great piece of news to talk about or something that might be a distant relation to that that we term "interesting" but alas I don't. Still, I notice that Britany Spears has got married again. Hopefully this one lasts longer than some of the stuff I have in my fridge. JoA did well getting nominated in two categories, Best actress (drama) and best series (drama). Considering the strength of the opposition there was little chance of it winning, but quite an achievement for a first series in getting nominated.

Later than normal but with a bit of sadness I bring you this Track of the week. Why the sadness I hear you ask (or is that just some crickets chirping), well on Thursday I found out that Johnny Ramone had lost his battle with cancer, so this week's offering is "I wanna be sedated" by The Ramones
The Ramones rose to fame in New York in the 70s with their brand of unpolished, high-energy songs played at breakneck speed. They were possibly the founding fathers of punk and helped pave the way for British punk bands such as the Clash and The Sex Pistols, but never really matched the commercial success of those that followed them.
The Ramones are best know for their downbeat, nihilistic songs such as "Blitzkrieg Bop," "Teenage Lobotomy" and "Now I Wanna Sniff Glue" as well as the more subtler " Sheena is a punk Rocker". All famously brief and counted in with a trademark "one-two-three-four!" introduction. The reason for picking "Sedated" is that it has a Buffy connection. Spike idly croons it whilst on a phony stakeout with Buffy in the season five episode "Crush" and it originally appears on the Ramones' 1978 album "Road to Ruin" and is also somewhere on radio magic box.
Johnny is the third member of the band to die in recent years. Singer Joey Ramone, born Jeffrey Hyman, died in 2001 of lymphatic cancer. Bassist Dee Dee Ramone, born Douglas Colvin, died from a drug overdose a year later. A documentary, "End of the Century: The Story of the Ramones," should be on release in cinemas shortly, and former Ramones drummer Marky Ramone, if I'm right the last surviving member, has overseen the recent release of a DVD called "Ramones Raw."

Just time left to say a customary..."take care all" or as The Ramones might have put it "Hey Ho Lets Go"
