*Pop the champagne corks! Uncle Ken is gonna mount a rescue in 2012. Slay the horrible ogre Mister Livingstone! He's a wrong 'un for sure.

*It's happening in a city near you: "gentrification" (a.k.a. marginalization) of dirty downtown realness. Give us your hustlers, your trannies, your homeless, your loud flaming fags... UH UH, NOT IN MY NEIGHBOURHOOD!

*Hitler must be spinning in his grave, as a degenerate hotel for homosexuals opens in Berlin. I ought to have been in Berlin last weekend, had my bff not become unemployed (don't worry, he's back in the rat race again).

*Virgin Media Television axes Trouble channel after 11 years. The home of Girlfriends and teen sitcoms like One On One, it's to be replaced by another Living channel (i.e. more excrement for women like Grey's Anatomy, Lipstick Jungle, Most Haunted... and Criminal Minds. Oooooh, is that Shemar Moore? Mmmmmmmmm damn he BUFF! And Mandy Patinkin off Chicago Hope too, the best hospital series ever...)

*The guns, the guns, the guns... I can't think, all I can see are the guns, the guns, the guns...

*A bad week for polar bears. Following mounting fears for their survival in an Arctic with rapidly melting sea ice, comes the sickening news of Rich People paying $US35,000 for the fun of killing one.

*Twin Towers in Paris!

*Noisy trains in London!

*London in Braille!

*Buy a whole English village!

*A minimum price for alcohol threatened, an idea promptly shelved by the PM (sighs of relief all round).

*Is this blog getting worse? Probably. That's because the brain takes early retirement at 27. I hate boffins. (Still, how sexy is the guy in the photo they've used?)

*EastEnders facing a budget cut. Could've fooled me - how cool is last night's trailer for Peggy's wedding? And is Archie the scariest Daddy ever?

*And while we're on the subject of soaps, are they to blame for booze binge Blighty, or are they reflecting the reality of Britain's drinking culture? Campaign groups think the former.

*The 100 Greatest Songs Of All Time, according to the Telegraph. (Yawn.)

*And in other music news, 2 Unlimited back together for the first time since 1996 (Ray Slijngaard was the Most Beautiful Boy In The World back then. Not so much now.)

*Pet Shop Boys new single features a B-side about the police shooting of Jean Charles de Menezes in 2005.

*"Madonna has crucified Baby Jesus one last time so that he can fly away and play with infants his own age. The Daily Star says Baby Jesus has been released from Vadge's roided-up cooch of death after she saw pictures of him in Brazil with a young piece." Yes, it's the end of the affair, as only dlisted can do it.

*No, not the poor gays. It's the gay poor.

*Obama channels Dubya.

*Post post-post-colonialism. Okay, so he's not saying it right, but there's more than a modicum of common sense in what he's saying. But it's drowned out by hysterical screams of "RACIST!"

*And finally, Reggie Bush's ass.

You bastard! There I was collecting material for a News Brief editorial I've been preparing for every Sunday, and then I read all this; half of the stories I was planning to do! Now I'm going to look like a copycat!

I think I hate you...

It actually nearly didn't go up today. Google decided to block access to my account for some reason:

"We're sorry but your query looks similar to automated requests from a computer virus or spyware application. To protect our users, we can't process your request right now. We'll restore your access as quickly as possible, so try again soon. In the meantime, if you suspect that your computer or network has been infected, you might want to run a virus checker or spyware remover to make sure that your systems are free of viruses and other spurious software. We apologize for the inconvenience, and hope we'll see you again on Google."

Very, very frustrating, because I was right in the middle of putting this article together. Then I was suddenly restored after a few hours.

I hate Google.

TheatreMad87 said...

Yeah, well don't think your sob story will stop me. I'll be going to press, tomorrow, whether you like it or not. Just like Colin Baker.

And yes, google are c*@ts...

KAOS said...

I'm sure yours will be more worthy and newsworthy than mine anyway. And I bet Natasha Richardson will be in there.

Urban Shotz said...

You are so right about Ray Slijngaard - he was so hot!

Mr. Jones said...

LOVE the new layout, sir. Bravo. And you're right, changing the banner does reinforce that lots is going on here. ;-)

**goes back to reading the news I missed last week**

KAOS said...

I'm glad you like it. I'm not so sure myself. I wasted the entire day changing it, then trying to change back, then trying an alternative... and on it went.

I'm bitterly regretting putting all my links in yellow, which I'll now have to go back and manually change one by one. And why can't I hide labels at the bottom of posts, despite unchecking the box that's supposed to show/hide them? GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR...
