Shilpa and Jo and Royalty

January 31, 2007

Hi Grit

Just when you thought it was all over, so it starts again. Yes, you are correct. There are rumours that Shilpa is set to meet the Queen and Tony Blair (providing the latter keeps himself out of prison). In addition, a significant number of offers have come her way, including book deals, West End appearences and many others.

On the other side of the coin Jo, one of the three accused of bullying has won the support of Sarah Ferguson, ex-wife of Prince Andrew, who rightly thinks that it is time to draw a line under this situation. Jo has also suffered over the weekend as her manager died of a heart attack.

Time to draw the curtains and let all of these people get on with their lives.

Jade, Shilpa and Big Brother – the media aftermath

January 30, 2007

Hi Grit

As expected, the story of the Big Brother house and it’s inmates continues in the media, with screaming headlines from all the papers each trying to lead with a different contestant. The Mirror has Shilpa’s story, which is still the most balanced of the lot, as she tries to defuse the racism aspect.

The Sun reveals that Jade Goody, the main instigator, has booked into a rehab clinic on the verge of a breakdown, as her world is falling apart. Whatever one’s views on her are, let’s hope at least she can find some peace and come to terms with everything, if only for her family.

The Daily Star led with Danielle’s story, which had little to add and seemed to confirm what Shilpa thought of her, that she was stupid. The Mirror again carried the story about Jo O’Meara refusing to apologise for her part in the incident.

Have you noticed anything strange about all this? The most startling fact to me is that none of the male contestants of the show appear to made or been ask to make any comment about the events of the past three weeks.

Bat out of hell, bite me world!

January 29, 2007

Hi Brit,

I was in a bit of a nostalgic mood this afternoon, so I put “Bat Out of Hell” on and cranked it up.  Man, what perfect timing!  Global Warming, extremest Muslim terrorists, liberals, Jane Fonda, Britney’s beaver, Big Brother racism, Hillary Clinton, the United Nations, President Bush, AlGore, Iraq, Iran, nuclear bombs, blood in the streets, and the end of the world; screw it all!  So, take a few minutes, put the CD on, crank it up and sing along!

Bat Out Of Hell lyrics

The sirens are screaming and the fires are howling

Way down in the valley tonight
There’s a man in the shadows with a gun in his eye
And a blade shining oh so bright
There’s evil in the air and there’s thunder in the sky
And a killer’s on the bloodshot streets
And down in the tunnel where the deadly are rising
Oh I swear I saw a young boy
Down in the gutter
He was starting to foam in the heat
Oh Baby you’re the only thing in this whole world
that’s pure and good and right
And wherever you are and wherever you go
There’s always gonna be some light
But i gotta get out
I gotta break it out now
Before the final crack of dawn
So we gotta make the most of our one night together
When it’s over you know
We’ll both be so alone
Like a bat out of hell
I’ll be gone when the morning comes
When the night is over
Like a bat out of hell I’ll be gone gone gone
Like a bat out of hell I’ll be gone when the morning comes
But when the day is done
And the sun goes down
And the moonlight’s shining through

Then like a sinner before the gates of heaven

I’ll come crawling on back to you
I’m gonna hit the highway like a battering ram

On a silver black phantom bike

When the metal is hot and the engine is hungry

And we’re all about to see the light

Nothing ever grows in this rotten old hole

Everything is stunted and lost

And nothing really rocks

And nothing really rolls

And nothing’s ever worth the cost

And I know that I’m damned if I never get out

And maybe I’m damned if I do

But with every other beat I got left in my heart

You know I’d rather be damned with you

If I gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned

Dancing through the night with you

If I gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned

Gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned

If Gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned

Dancing through the night

Dancing through the night

Dancing through the night with you
Oh Baby you’re the only thing in this whole world

     that’s pure and good and right

And wherever you are and wherever you go

There’s always gonna be some light

But I gotta get out

I gotta break it out now

Before the final crack of dawn

So we gotta make the most of our one night together

When it’s over you know

We’ll both be so alone

Like a bat out of hell

I’ll be gone when the morning comes

When the night is over

Like a bat out of hell I’ll be gone gone gone

Like a bat out of hell I’ll be gone when the morning comes

But when the day is done

And the sun goes down

And the moonlight’s shining through

Then like a sinner before the gates of heaven

I’ll come crawling on back to you

Then like a sinner before the gates of heaven

I’ll come crawling on back to you

I can see myself tearing up the road

Faster than any other boy has ever gone

And my skin is raw but my soul is ripe

And no one’s gonna stop me now

I gotta make my escape

But I can’t stop thinking of you

And I never see the sudden curve until it’s way too late

I never see the sudden curve till it’s way too late

Then I’m dying on the bottom of a pit in the blazing sun

Torn and twisted at the foot of a burning bike

And I think somebody somewhere is tolling a bell

And the last thing I see is my heart

Still beating

Breaking out of my body

And flying away

Like a bat out of hell

Then I’m dying at the bottom of a pit in the blazing sun

Torn and twisted at the foot of a burning bike

And I think somebody somewhere must be tolling a bell

And the last thing I see is my heart

Still beating

Still beating

Breaking out of my body and flying away

Like a bat out of hell

Thanks Jim; thanks Meat!  Still love it; still a fan.

The true, savage, face of PETA.

January 24, 2007

Hi Brit,

I don’t know if y’all are inflected with PETA (People for The Ethical Treatment of Animals) over there, but they’re an itchy rash on the ass of the US.  I’ve always thought they were staffed by a cadre of retarded zealots, but I had no idea they were this insane, PETA foes salivate at cruelty trial.  Ignoring the liberal spin in the title, we find that members of PETA are on trial for getting people to give them unwanted pets, under the pretext of finding them new homes, then killing the dogs and cats, and tossing the corpses in a dumpster!  Obviously, besides finding the culprits guilty, euthanizing them, and tossing their bodes in a dumpster, the Government needs to disband this criminal organization.  We also find, “The group, which raises more than $25 million a year from 1.6 million supporters,” proving that the 1.6 million nut jobs that stand behind this blood soaked gang, are tight wads.

Hollywood should worry about their own neighborhood

January 21, 2007

Hi Brit,

Speaking of Celebrities telling other people how to live, I came across this story: L.A. Vows Gang Crackdown After Kids Die and it got me to thinking that Hollywood, the center of all things Celebrity, is in Los Angeles.  So I looked up crime statistics for the area, Crime Maps and COMPSTAT (click on City – Wide Crime Statistics.)  Wow!  35 murders in less than a month, along with 54 rapes, 1049 robberies, and 915 aggravated assaults.  I’d say the Rich and Famous need to clean up their own neighborhood, a notoriously liberal area by the way, before they try and spread their political ideology to the rest of the country.
