Bob vs Paul vs Noel

I have to say, I've got no real issue with Bob Geldof calling on Paul Martin to get his act together and come forward with the 0.7% of Canada's national gross income that was originally proposed by Lester B. Pearson to be devoted to aid by 1975. I think that this is probably the most noble cause of celebrity, whether it may seem pompous or not. After all, when was the last time that the Canadian media criticized a celebrity for attacking George Bush Jr over his foreign policy?

My main beef about Live 8 is the absolutely awful lineup that they've put together for the Canadian venue. I mean, really, does anyone out there want to see Our Lady Peace this summer? I'd rather eat glass. I would, however, consider attending if only Mel B would just stop holding out on the Spice Girls reunion.

I mean, what is she doing in California that's so important?

Also, leave it to Noel Gallagher to bring a ray of warm sunshine to the issue:

"Are they hoping that one of these guys from the G8 is on a quick 15 minute break at Gleneagles [in Scotland] and sees Annie Lennox singing 'Sweet Dreams' and thinks, 'F**k me, she might have a point there, you know?' Keane doing 'Somewhere Only We Know' and some Japanese businessman going, 'Aw, look at him... we should really f**king drop that debt, you know.' It's not going to happen, is it?"

Can't you feel the love of Oasis, warming you deep down in the cockles of your heart?
