The Script...Decent Band?? Definitely handy but did you know they used to be called MYTOWN. Formed back in 1996, they were a boyband in the same vein as 911 or The Fudgepipe Five. However great worldwide success was to evade them and they disappeared into the showbiz smoke like so many other acts...Remember Upside Down ...Jesus i remember even seeing a documentary on those gimps...im sure they're still gigging in some takeaway in Northern England somewhere...Lead singer Danny and guitarist Marc appear in the video below for their biggest hit "Party All Night" which they clearly did. As you can see Marc is now as bald as a baby's arse but once had a shock of blond hair:
Marc on the far left (with hair) and Danny second from right
Not ones to shy from the tough line of questioning usually associated with Boybands..you know; Who's the gay one? Which one of ye can't read? These lads remained true to their mantra, "We're a fun band but at the same time we have a lot of depth," Just check out the video for Party All Night. Deep.

And here's an example of someone not paying atention. It's John McCain, a very scary prospect for the next President of the US and feasibly the person to Nuke us all into f*ckin oblivion...well it turns out that he is also a really shite liar...He was supposed to go on The Dave Letterman Show the other night and called at the last minute to cancel ...saying "Dave i'm so sorry can't go on tonight but i'm actually on route to Washington to save this country from collapse" Okay a pretty good excuse, not as valid as, "i may have to get my arse surgically removed from the bowl after a night of powerhosing," but good enough.
What follows is absolute GENIUS. Letterman was furious and spent the night discussing McCain's untimely cancellation. He then proceeded to show McCain appearing LIVE at the SAME TIME on a rival channel.
Take a few minutes and check this out. Lesson to learn from this...If you're gonna lie McCain, make it a good one. Muppet.

OR SOMEONE YOU WORK WITH NEEDS TO HAVE THEIR BEHAVIOUR NOTED...
Ever had an issue with someone at work cuting their toenails on the desk... an office colleague that insists on wearing no pants for a meeting with important clients...or they just smell like Amy Winehouse's jocks after a three day bender hanging out in Pete Doherty's wheelie bin...HERE'S YOUR SOLUTION:
It's a website called nicecritic and allows you to send some anonymous comments to a fellow worker you can't talk to face to face. It's very American so it has phrases like "I think a mint might be beneficial today" rather than "C'mere biy your mouth smells like a dead man's fart"
Personally i think the best way to deal with these things is to face someone down and tell them straight...they will take action or they'll spiral into some depression and return to work wielding a machine gun...so approach with a friendly but cautionary manner.

Modern day Magical Messiah or Twat? You decide.
This is part of a viral marketing campaign by a catering company. I think it's genius and beats a drumming f*ckin ape anyday...HERE'S LITTLE GORDON:
Lord i forgot about this travesty...Back in 1996 when a linedancing craze took over the UK this went to number 1...It's the cast of Emmerdale with Hillbilly Rock, Hillbilly Roll...
Nice hair lads...At least they were better with the guitar than the crimpers
Having Air Guitared *assumes wide leg stance* and plucked the strings to these masters of rock i was surprised to see that Led Zeppelin could be on the lookout for a new lead singer if Robert Plant doesn't join the rest of the band on a reunion tour...
"LED ZEPPELIN frontman ROBERT PLANT is to be given an ultimatum by his bandmates – join us on tour or we’ll replace you.
Zep guitarist JIMMY PAGE, bassist JOHN PAUL JONES and drummer JASON BONHAM have been busy recently rehearsing in West London’s Ritz Studio and using stand-in vocalists.
And one American singer has been so impressive the other band members are confident they could hit the road next year WITHOUT their iconic frontman"
Obviously i was shocked at this news but my brow sweats no longer as i have found the PERFECT replacement for Plant's haunting high notes...Her name is 'Wing' and after making several appearances on South Park i think she is the only person capable of filling rock's biggest shoes...
And here's why, check out Wing's interpretation of classic acts from The Beatles to Abba. My personal favourite however is her take on the classic AC/DC headbanger Back in Black:
And if your dream is to become an Air Geetar Champion and finally get the recognition you deserve from your peers..Check this out:
Its called the Guitar Rock Star and is set to be the pressie under every tree this Chrimbo:

He is of course Hollywood superstar Aidan Quinn...He has acted in some highly acclaimed roles in movies like Legends of the Fall, Desperately Seeking Susan, Benny & Joon, Song for a Raggy Boy and of course Michael Collins to name a handful. He spoke about working with Johnny Depp and other legends like Anthony Hopkins. He's a really sound bloke and relishes his trips back to his roots in Ireland. He is currently filming a new Conor McPherson flick called Eclipse down in our very own Cobh. He told us about a couple of headers who tried to start a fight on set...i think they thought it was a Steven Seagal vehicle!! So if you're floating around there over the weekend say hello!! If you missed his interview today...fear not as it will appear on the Best of The Rooster tomorrow morning between 10am and 12pm.
Have a class weekend and see you on Monday...from 6am...GO WELL!!!!!!!!!!!

Fred was out to impress the ladies after using the new Gym for oldies...
We were talking about this today. Listen closely to the clip and you can hear what sounds like a rusty hip popping in the background:
It's a 'Pensioners Playground' which has been opened on an Isle in Scotland!! It has a load of equipment including a skiing machine, space walker, body twister, a chest press, a leg press and a pull-down exerciser. In a couple of years they'll have all the Grannies and Grandads showing off their six packs and flexing their triceps in the queue for the bus...although they probably won't have an issue with any young hoods pushing to the front...
Well it reminded me of this...It's Supergran One of my fave shows as a kid and can you believe the theme song was provided by the Big Yin himself Billy Connolly...Class:

Please DO NOT try this at home...unless you actually are a fish:
Lily Allen makes a dick out of herself...Drink problem?? What could possibly give you that idea! Like a smashed Uncle at a wedding dancing to YMCA get ready to put your cringe face on..."Oh no Uncle Dave don't take off your ...oh God he has" Oh, Lily you make me smile:
And to celebrate the news that a Facebook movie is on the cards - http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/entertainment/7585632.stm here is an interview with Mr Facebook, uber geek Mark Zuckerberg, who Forbes magazine described as "the youngest billionaire on earth and possibly the youngest self-made billionaire ever," with an estimated net worth of $3 billion. He is only 24. And with a personal wealth that could single handedly drag this country out of recession, he says that he sleeps in a one bedroom flat on a mattress on the floor. Ah just fuck off.
Here's the man who loves to poke:
