If I could do impressions

If I could do impressions I would phone up Rory Bremner posing as Kevin Lygo. I would tell him that his programme was being axed, because he is shit, and his programme hasn’t been funny for at least ten years and those John bores are about as entertaining as sitting on a fire.

Blog awards — we need your help

I’m usually not too keen on blog awards. In fact, I despise all of them except for the ones that I’m nominated for. In other words, I despise all of them. But Clairwil has had a brainwave.

Radiohead LP7

Dead Air Space (for the uninitiated, it’s Radiohead’s slightly strange blog) is certainly busy these days. Hopefully this is a sign that an album is imminent (at last)!
