Just one fucking thing after another

Forgive the fragmented nature of this post, which rather reflects real life at the moment. (Occupying my in tray right now: wine labels; upholstery; Leonard Cohen; 9/11; lost cheques; ants.)

1. I am now also blogging at Rock’sBackPages: this is my first effort.

2. Someone called Stephen Jones (see comments) appears to have got it into his pretty little head that I’m something to do with a cabal of swivel-eyed free-market fundamentalists called the Adam Smith Institute. Well I’m blimmin’ well not, OK?

3. Please go and check out my friend Stuart’s site, Your 10 Movies. It’s not quite buzzing yet, but the more people who show up to argue about whether The Seventh Seal is better than High School Musical 3, the better.

4. Did you know that in the first 11 years of the Academy Awards, the Best Director Oscar was on seven occasions won by a man named Frank?

1. Good choices. And is that the Chris Welch in the sidebar?

2. SJ must be a pretty perceptive chap then.

4. This Frank person must be pretty talented.

Re Title: That's what must be your mantra if you are to become a media whore.

Stephen Jones obviously has a wrong number. But I'm now convinced I can never meet you in person, because you would yell at me. Unfortunately I'm one of those Americans who is no good at adopting new accents. :-(

Record of the current decade has to be Lily Allen 'Fear'. Pete Doherty and Amy Winehouse could have been a contenders but they blew it.

We're all whores, Rog. All that we can aspire to is promotion to pimp.

I've got no problem with people who can't do accents, Valerie. Unless they're actors of course, when there's no excuse.

Doherty's back and clean, allegedly, Dick. And he's calling himself Peter as well, which is terribly grown up of him.
