Sweet Hell - Mercury 2007  
This year's Mercury Nominations have been released, and ho-hum:

Arctic Monkeys - Favourite Worst Nightmare
Dizzee Rascal - Maths and English
The View - Hats Off to the Buskers
Maps - We Can Create
Bat For Lashes - Fur and Gold
Klaxons - Myths of the Near Future
Jamie T - Panic Prevention
The Young Knives - Voices of Animals and Men
Fionn Regan - The End of History
Basquiat Strings with Seb Rochford - Basquiat Strings
Amy Winehouse - Back to Black
New Young Pony Club - Fantastic Playroom

THE VIEW?!

Needless to say, Arctic Monkeys and Whinehouse are favourites. It's an annoyingly mainstream list - normally the Mercurys is the one award that will nominate more obscure genres/acts, but this year, it could be the index of the NME. And quite possibly is.

I'm gunning for Bat For Lashes or Young Knives myself.

I wonder what her acceptance speech would be like. I don't wonder what she'd spend the prize money on, though, because that's obvious. Hairspray and Jack Daniels. For real.

You think she will be capable of speech? Standing upright is beyond her!

True. In that case, I wonder what her being carried onstage and headbutting the microphone, breaking another tooth in the process, will be like.

Oh God, that's a horrible image...
