Mr Writer *

From today's Guardian, a wonderful sentence in a review by Brian Logan of the horrific-sounding Mandy Patinkin's one-man show in London:

"Some people love this stuff; the rest of us are agog that it hasn't been criminalised."

*The despicable and odious Stereophonics

I asked this question once before and now I ask it once more....what exactly is wrong with the Stereophonics?????

Hope you don't mind me mentioning this controversial subject - sitting as I am right next to you, drinking your champagne and celebrating the third anniversary of the day we met. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Awh, Bless.

Re: Mandy P - yes, I too read that review and thought 'OUCH!'

re: The Stereophonics - well, I get that they're not well liked (understatement) and indeed are despised by some. I'm no great fan but they did dominate the soundtrack of one of my favourite films (This Year's Love) and for that I cannot truly hate them.

Mind, The Stereophonics are nothing to do with why I love the film....

JJ - they are a terrible band and that little shit of a singer thinks far too highly of himself.

Lisa - thanks for the tip-off. I will now never see This Year's Love.

JAN 24th...Hull City 2 Millwall 0. Sorry old chap! After all it is only a game. I trust you weren't one of the so-called supporters who vandalised some of the seating in our beautiful little stadium. Better luck in next year's FA Cup competition!

Kind of ironic that your most recent post on the blog - FROM SIX WEEKS AGO - is entitled 'Mr Writer'. ;;-)

Finger and thumbs out, old chap.

Darren - I wondered how long it would take someone to point that out! Yes, I am a lazy bugger and intend to get back to blogging in the very near future. The finger is on its way out ...
