Sting is an insufferable twat

July 15th, 2010 · Comments Off on Sting is an insufferable twat

I doubt it’s news to anyone that Sting is an insufferable twat, but Dave Itzkoff of the New York Times had the point hammered home in a recent interview that The Guardian has snarkily whittled down to its most abhorrently pretentious bits, which I am more than happy to share with you now: “Ask Sting […]

Gorillaz’ Rider: Jar of self-righteous organic peanut butter

March 5th, 2010 · Comments Off on Gorillaz’ Rider: Jar of self-righteous organic peanut butter

The Guardian’s Dr. John Briffa deconstructs the health benefits (or lack thereof) in the Gorillaz’ rider. Murdoc’s rider • A magnum of Dom Perignon 98 – love this mixed with orange juice • Rum – Murdoc home-brew special.

George Michael: candidly crazy

December 15th, 2009 · 2 Comments

Reading this interview between The Guardian and George Michael, one comes away with the impression that Michael is kind of a paranoid loon. And not just your typically famous, crazy-person-musician-type loon, either. This goes beyond most self-absorbed celebrities and their notoriously dysfunctional behavior.

Gold and hilarity both ensue. Oh, and I just got an email from Nasty Little Man owner, Steve Martin: “Activision is responding […]

The Sex […]

Will there ever be another Crass?

July 8th, 2009 · Comments Off on Will there ever be another Crass?

The Guardian’s John Robb questions whether punk legends Crass – or a band with similarly extreme ideals – could exist in today’s musical and social climate. Are kids today too cynical to buy into such ideals? Was Crass’ success outside the mainstream merely a product of extraordinary times? The band played its last show 25 […]

Happy Birthday, Moz

May 22nd, 2009 · Comments Off on Happy Birthday, Moz

Steven Patrick Morrissey turns 50 today. Sort of hard to believe. Well, The Guardian has been wondering what to get the old coot. Hearing aids and bicycle puncture repair kits aside, the funniest suggestion is clearly: Johnny Marr’s mobile number. Though, a key to his closet is a close second. Some of the comments are […]
