Ohh, so that’s how memes start!

As Chris Applegate says, this was absolutely screaming out to be a meme. Jawbox has done it aswell. But I refrained from calling it a meme in my post because I didn’t want to be responsible for starting one. Looks like I’m getting the blame for it anyway. Uhh, it was his fault! No, his! […]

Children’s presenters turned floggers

I’ve just seen Ortis from CBBC presenting on Quiz Call. Bahahaha. I hadn’t realised he’d sunk so low. He is still as irritating a presenter as always. But Peter Simon will always be my favourite children’s television presenter turned Egyptian cotton towel flogger. Ironic thing is that Ortis used to present children’s consumer programme Short […]

Glasgow funnies

Just got back from Glasgow. It wasn’t my choice you know; my parents took the lot of us. My brother’s girlfriend is up here at the moment aswell, which meant that there was five of us squashed into the car. On a journey as long as the one between Kirkcaldy and Glasgow, this was nothing […]

Time Wipe

I seem to be having trouble posting a comment on Will’s blog, so I’ll say my bit here. He gives us advance warning that this week’s edition of Charlie Brooker’s Screen Wipe is a 50 minute long US edition, which means that it clashes with Time Trumpet! I wouldn’t have realised that! Did they mention […]

I can’t be arsed getting angry

I can’t be arsed getting angry. But whilst terrorism is boring, civil liberties aren’t. So I’m just going to link to a lot of people who have got angry today. I did stick these on the linklog, but there were far too many good posts today so I thought I’d make a proper post to […]

Time Trumpet

Armando Iannucci has got a new programme, which is always good news. It’s got a brilliant title — Time Trumpet — and is due to broadcast in the autumn. It is a clip show set in the future, looking back to the years 2007–2025. Here are some preview clips (via The Whiskey Priest). And oh […]

Big Brother’s Big Saviour

This year’s Big Brother has been a pile of old bum apparently. A bunch of the original housemates turned out to be possibly too ill. A series of stunts devised by the producers has backfired — the Golden Ticket housemate turning out to be an immense dullard, and the building of a “secret house next […]

Modern Toss is okay

None of these really deserve a post on their own, so I’ll just post them together. First of all, I watched Modern Toss last night on Channel 4. It got a bit dull towards the end, but a lot of it was very funny. I haven’t enjoyed watching a television progamme so much for a […]

Worst. Album title. Ever.

I saw an advert for Shakira’s latest album. Shakira — she’s the one with different vocal style based on every farmyard animal from the chicken to the cow. Anyway, the thing that I found interesting about this advert was that it never actually mentioned the title of the album. Quite crafty of them really. Who […]
