These have been clogging up my 'drafts' box for too long now.

If you've never heard of Grandaddy, then you need to search them out, Selectadisc would be a good place to start.

If you want to see them in concert, you're too late, they split up a few years ago.

Ah well.

Anyway, a taster .......

Now it's on

Disappointment will get you in the end

Deprived of the bi-annual disappointment of watching England get knocked out of a major tournament, usually on penalties, usually to a team you know we would be capable of beating if only we played to our strengths and didn't just hoof it long for the big lad up front to flick on to the shorter, quicker lad who's usually stood thirty yards away, this summer comes the disappointment of picking a side, the f***ing world cup holders no less, only to watch them capitulate to dobbin the sea-side pony, his ten mates and the linesman.

Keith Hackett, the referee's assessor can claim Van Eeyore's goal was technically on-side all he likes, there's not a chance in the world the linesman knew that, he cocked up good and proper, and just got lucky.

So while the rest of the world laughed as a dutch team passed their way to pretty much guaranteed progression from their group, I was left almost crying into my brand new Italy shirt.

Crying at the waste of £20, but also crying full in the knowledge that, after last nights game, it's a bloody good job England DIDN'T qualify.

Because, owing to the nature of the ability of both sets of teams last night, the current England squad would have been a comparable laughing stock.

Here is a picture of a man tossing a caber.

He would be called, what is commonly known as, a big tosser.

Which leads me neatly to the start of Big Brother 9.

Why is this program still on ?

Who is so stupid as still watches it ?

How many people who weren't total w***ers last year have suddenly turned into egotistical non-entities in the space of 12 months ?

Who gives a flying f**k who wins ?

I'll tell you who's going to win at Big Brother this year.

The same person who won last year.


Because last year I did the same as I'm planning on doing this, I didn't watch a single f***ing second of it.

Only when I laugh

Commons a "coup" for Derby. Surely a spelling mistake there.

So, Kris Commons has now officially signed his contract / life away with the flock bothering neanderthals down the A52. Delayed only because Pukka Pies were making sure they could get their delivery wagons to Pride Park on time.

Apparently he's the first player to move from Forest to Derby since Gary Charles in 1993, and we all know what a huge success that was for the player concerned!!

Seriously, I think the bloke's made a mistake leaving Forest at this time, for what is clearly more about money than any desire to play football at a higher level. He's overweight (pot, kettle, black, sorry), injury prone, lazy and only turns it on when he feels like it. When he does deem it a special day for his obvious talent, he is a class player, but those occasions are all too few & far between.

I don't expect players in this day and age to be loyal to my club, it's all about the money for most of them, but at least go somewhere on the up, a league above, not just down the road so you can still live near your mum & her home cooking.

One thing's for sure, though, unlike me he must like the night-life in Derby.

Coz he's had his last night out in Nottingham, that's for sure.

Movie Reviews #1

Ignoring the ridiculous ending, the new Indiana Jones film isn't as bad as some critics are making out. If you liked the first three (ok, if you liked the first & last one) then it's more of the same, exactly what it says on the tin.

If you've got a choice, see that, rather than the awful Forgetting Sarah Marshall, a film that never got past the original story phase. Russell Brand is the best part of this film as he plays a Brit obsessed with sex. Why did they choose Russell Brand ? And how hard was it for him to get into character for that one ? Hardly an elephant Man performance, eh ?
