So, I've got loads of QI icons now. Yay. Possibly overkilly-yay, but yay nonetheless. I've watched the first series of it in the past week or two. When does series 2 come out on DVD? *taps impatiently*

Also, the person who did the QI icons had some Whose Line Is It Anyway? ones too, one of which had Ryan Stiles & Colin Mochrie OTP. Which is just so right, somehow. Aww.

The BBC has the top ten Sounds of 2007 tips. I've heard of Cold War Kids, but only because I read something about them yesterday. Possibly because of the BBC tip. And I've heard of Mika, but only because I subtitled his single the other week. I used to know about music *sob*

Anyway, I do like Mika. You can listen to the single Grace Kelly here (probably, and I should mention that I had to load it in an IE tab before it would work). It makes me bounce around cheerfully, and it mentions (and sounds vocally similar to, in some bits) Freddie / Queen. It's available to download from Monday, according to his very funky website (though it's Flash, so YMMV), and yet I can't find it leaked anywhere online. Bah. Can't save it from Media Player, I don't think, and the video isn't on YouTube, though his Jools appearance is.

Scarily, I've found listening to Radio 2 has improved my musical knowledge in the last year or two. I first heard Grace Kelly a month or so back, and they play it almost every day at the moment. It's great, isn't it? I think the Freddie Mercury thing is deliberate.

Yeah, it's fab! From the snippets on the website, his other songs sound pretty good too. And yeah, I'm sure the Freddie thing is a deliberate homage.

I'd never seen QI before. So guess how I spent 4 hours last night?
Including that episode.

It had me, and eveyrone else here who hadn't seen it before, dissolve into fits of laughter quite frequently.

It sounds a bit Queen, doesn't it. And Butterfly Ball too.
