Word for the week: Halo


The XBox 360's flagship game Halo 3 comes out today in the States. No, it ain't coming out in an Ellen Degeneres sense. Though if it did, I'm not sure the fanboys would peacefully warm up to their iconic Master Chief sporting an indigo armour with fuchsia patterns, nibbling on samosas and and powdering those darlin' aliens' faces with MAC's latest line. I, on the other hand, wouldn't stop laughing my ass off.

The Cure - Halo (from Join The Dots)
'Friday I'm In Love' is the darling, but methinks this B-side to that single is the true heart-tugger.

Gillian Welch - Red Clay Halo (from Time (The Revelator))
With this deft, self-assured bluegrass ditty, Welch celebrates the frumps of the world.

Appleseed Cast - Mountain Halo (from Peregrine)
In the company of Peregrine's emo shoegazers, 'Mountain Halo's industrial chunks pierce like nine inch nails.

The Bruces - The Electric Halo (from Shining Path)
Lambchop guitarist Alex McManus's side project strums a belly-dancing banjo in the key of Wilco.

Alice Cooper - Halo Of Flies (from Killer)
Closet-Christian shock rocker apes Julie Andrews mid-song. If he were an Austrian nun scampering the hills, I'd join that monastery yesterday.
