Commercial Break


The “it” in this case must mean abducting a girl in broad daylight on a busy city street. I guess having a fast car would make that a lot easier.

Thursday Night Fever



This clip goes so far beyond so-bad-it’s-good territory it enters new dimensions of kitsch that are beyond human comprehension.

Home taping is killing music


And has been since the 1950s apparently. That damn music is taking a long time to die.

And the winner is…


I very nearly went with Richard’s “Better lose the flip-flops, Paul, or nobody will know that you’re dead” because I always like a good obscure music-geek joke, but Lynchie won out in the end.

Caption Competition


Hopefully you can have some fun with this one. The best caption will win the prize of being the wittiest person on the internet. At least for a day.

I don’t like advertising so it takes a lot for me to grudgingly admit when they’re actually good, funny even, and this was brilliant. The Desmond Dekker one was good too.

I hope this ad didn’t intend to portray the rock and roll life as a glamourous one, because if it did it failed miserably.

Just the other week I was saying that boys start rock bands so they can attract more girls. I guess they can’t all be Jerry Hall.

Something for the Weekend



I’ve long thought this was one of those pop songs that were secretly about drugs but apparently it isn’t. Shame.
