Today I shall review the news, a bit like the way they do on the television.
First up is The Independent. Yesterday’s edition saw an interview with Primal Scream frontman Bobby Gillespie, marking the release of the band’s new ‘Dirty Hits’ compilation, and one particular passage caught my attention.
Strangely enough, I lived in this very flat at the time and was also part of the shoot (on the video I’m the silhouetted dancer on the left hand side of the screen with the long hair, fact fans). What the journalist fails to mention, probably wisely under the circumstances, is that not only were we dancing to the Happy Mondays when the footage was shot, but the entire room was chanting ‘Booooooby Gillespie, is a wanker, is a wanker’ for much of the duration. It just felt like the right thing to do at the time.
Meanwhile, over at the November edition of Maxim Magazine, the inside back cover features a hilarious quiz, the object of which is to differentiate between a series of murderous, civil rights-abusing dictators and a selection of homosexuals, simply be examining their moustaches. Priceless stuff indeed.
Highly amusing, I’m sure you’ll all agree, and not at all like a certain online quiz I made last February, the object of which was to differentiate between a series of murderous, civil rights-abusing dictators and a selection of porn legends, simply be examining their moustaches. No, I don’t see any connection or resemblence there at all, none whatsoever.
Someone’s making money here, and I want my cut.
