People's Instinctive Travels And The Paths of Rhythm


THE NEWS
ACCORDING TO
GARÇON STUPIDE

• "I have a situation from Naples. I have a situation from Cuba... a German just arrived from Germany... two black guys... the soccer player... and the dancer for the RAI state broadcaster." A Vatican chorister describes the tableau of men available to his Vatican superior.

• "Marie Osmond's poor gay son killed himself because he had been told how wrong and how sick he was every day of his life by his church and the people in it. Calling that "depression" is a lie! Yet the Osmonds still talk lovingly about their church, saying nothing about its extremely anti-gay Crusade. Marie also has a gay daughter! Hey, I want her and all the gay kids in the world to know that they are just fine being gay and that they deserve love and respect instead of insults and rebuke! I have gay people in my family and my circle of friends and I am kicking bigot ass and taking names!"
Roseanne Barr on the suicide of Marie Osmand's son.

• The mobile phone that
recharges itself by "harvesting energy from the owner's motion".

publication in October.

• JLS a longterm prospect: management have a
five year strategy.

• Jason Derulo comes between two halves of JLS (sorry, I couldn't resist).

• The new series of Doctor Who has Twilight and Harry Potter-like elements. "We wanted to give the look of the series a slightly more storybook, fairy-tale feel - within reason," executive producer Piers Wenger
told Doctor Who Magazine. Fingers crossed that the style is a step away from the overblown American sci-fi series style favoured by Russell T. Davies.

• The BBC has renewed Doctor Who spin-off The Sarah Jane Adventures - starring ka-os|theory favourite Daniel Anthony - for a further two series.

• This week's

How do you decide what is news worthy?

Garçon Stupide said...

That's a funny thing to ask after all this time!

Basically anything that interests me, and that I think will interest others.

Eduardo Guize said...

Maybe I'm gonna start designing "Leave Ricky alone!" t-shirts...

Eric Arvin said...

I can't remember the last time I ran around outside naked! Ah, the good ol' days!

Corve said...
