A selection of Amy Winehouse’s teenage lyrics and a “to-do-list” has been found in a “stash of dumped school books,” Britain’s Sun reports:

They also include diary entries the Rehab singer made when 17 in 2001, the year before she landed a recording contract.

In one Amy, who has fought cocaine and booze addiction, urges herself to “live like the bombshell I really am”.

In another she tells of her lust for a fella named Felix and writes: “There’s too much sexual tension.”

Amy, now 27, scrawled lyrics amid course work for an English Literature A-level. She wrote “Amy’s Songs” on the front of a red notebook.

Lines include: “I’m digging myself into a hole/These days I’ll just work when once I had so much soul.”

Another verse starts: “Drain my drink & order more.” And a third - “Find someone with whom I can come undone” - predicted her future with junkie BLAKE FIELDER-CIVIL.

The books were found in rubbish on a North London street.

Amy’s to-do-list includes: buy a flat, buy a car, buy a sunbed, get a gym membership - all of which pales into insignificance when compared to what Amy eventually did do.

BLING!

Cause Small Change got rained on with his own thirty-eight
And a fistful of dollars can’t change that,
And someone copped his watch fob, and someone got his ring
And the newsboy got his porkpie Stetson hat”

Jarvis Cocker meets legendary ‘Top Of The Pops’ DJ Jimmy Savile

image
 
Jimmy Savile has been a pop culture icon in England since the early 1960s when he was a host on BBC TV’s “Top Of The Pops,”  NME Awards presenter and Radio One deejay. Savile’s pimpalicious fashion sense, platinum page boy, monumental cigar and ego converge in a larger than life character that is both charming and a wee bit appalling.

Jarvis Cocker presents his top ten rules for making the perfect television pop show. Rule number 8: Get Jimmy Savile. From British TV series “Favouritism.” As Savile blows hard, Cocker is like a sail in a hurricane.

Steampunk Etch-A-Sketch

While many of us are taking back those unwanted Christmas presents, or donating them to our favorite charities, here is a superb, hand-crafted gift - a steampunk Etch-A-Sketch, made by Reddit user halokitty for a friend.

Nothing on here is hot glued or slapped together. The screen is vaccu-formed to give it that old-timey bulbous look. The outer wood frame is custom built, painted, and wet-sanded to give it that gloss. The inner brass frame was laser cut. All the bits and pieces come from old machines and fittings. Nothing came from Home Depot. Some of the hoses and valves came from a 1902 boiler we just removed from our basement. Everything is made to fit and screwed or bolted in place. We were going for a grown up version of those old activity centers for toddlers- lots of levers and knobs and toggles to mess around with. Also, it still fully functions as an Etch-A-Sketch. Circles, however, are still a pain in the ass.
