New CD releases for February 1st

Not much happening here in musicville this week. I am lying, there is lots happening, but most of it is too dull to report here. I have assembled what I consider to be the best of what was available to me at the time. If you have an opinion on anything you see here then leave a comment. Sometimes people have alternate opinions and I would love to hear what you think about my musings. As always, hover over the image for a link to purchase. Enjoy.

Dear Tina - Does Size Matter?

Dear Tina,
I am 19 years old, 5 ft 6 and weigh 290lbs. My penis is 4 inches long and 3 inches around when erect. Will it get bigger as I get older? I have heard that losing weight will make it grow. I am concerned that I will be unable to satisfy my girlfriend with it. What can I do?

Please help, Desperate Reader.

Bono finally finds what he is looking for

U2's The Joshua Tree was released in May 1987 to universal critical acclaim, but 1 song from the multi-million selling album has perplexed listeners for nearly 25 years. On track 2, Bono sings 'I still haven't found what I’m looking for' causing people to query exactly what Bono needs to find so desperately that he wrote a song about it.

WTF? - Horror-scopes

As the rotation of the Earth slows, the direction of magnetic North is shifting towards Moscow, causing chaos for pilots trying to land at a Tampa airport.

This is however of miniscule significance when compared to how the accompanying celestial shift has caused me to move from being a challenging and impulsive Aries to a conservative, concrete Taurus.

Top Ten posts of 2010

Originally Scheduled for 12/31/10
but you just can't trust some people to get things right

The end of the year draws ever closer and it is the time for being retrospective.

Since the inception of My Twist News Slap the Penguin in July 2010 we have uploaded over 130 posts, and have made at least 7 people laugh (we get fan mail and various comments saying so).

Using a mirror to look back at 2010. Clever.
Oooh, nobody has ever used that mataphor before
