Thought For The Day:

Turn your back on Kippers. For whatever mental reason I bought kippers from Marks & Sparks the other day and the smell has not left the house. Jesus, its like being stuck in Paris Hilton's knickers :-/ Not a good place to be.

Anywho, speaking of fishy business. The Social Network is out this week and it is fantastic. Directed by David Fincher, the dude behind Fight Club and written by Mr West Wing, Aaron Sorkin. The result is a masterpiece. The subject of course is Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook's father, or at least the one who snatched the child. His story is incredible and he is set to become the fastest Billionaire ever (I don't mean he can do a 100 meters in under ten secs, but he is fecking looooaaadddddeeedd!!!!) His personal worth is over $6 bn and he still lives in a two storey house that he reckons is too big!

Have a read before you see the movie. He is like a geeky James Bond baddie...unreal:

Just click on pic:

Banksy gets himself on The Simpsons, must have arrived in the studio with a bag over his head!

Happy Birthday John Lennon!

Well, that's what the world would have been saying if it hadn't been for a certain Mark David Chapman and an obsession with The Catcher in the Rye. That looney-tune deprived the world of one of the smartest, idiosyncratic, oddball geniuses who ever picked up the six string. He would have been 70 years old tomorrow. Would he have spent the day lying back in his armchair, pipe in hand reading about himself, or calling up Paul McCartney and farting down the receiver. We shall never know.

But, we can try.

Here's a very tongue-in-cheek bit I did on Lennon at 70.

Lennon at 70. A Day In The Life...if he lived.

Cheeky chappy!

And, if you've never seen this video it's a treat.
Danger Mouse from Gnarls Barkley remixed The Beatles White Album with Jay-Z's Black album and created...The Grey Album!
I think this is great. Check out "John Lennon" breakdancing:

Here's me write up from meeting Howard Marks and Rhys Ifans on the roof of U2's hotel, The Clarence. Twas the morning after the night before and both were well oiled. Although, Ifans was pretty hammered, he was very funny and chatty...Enjoy!

Click on the pic innit!!!!

Controversial new VW Polo advert that Niall 'Nando' Breslain, he of The Blizzards threw this up on his Facebook page, so I have robbed it.

And while I was looking at that one, I found this. I know w=exactly how this kid feels and I think she single-handedly sums up most of the economic headlines being shoveled down our throats everyday :-( IN the words of that incredible (coughs) Belfast band D:Ream.."Thongs can only get better!!!!!!!!!" :-)

Hey Yawl. The Joaquin Phoenix 'experiment' is out today. Did a little piece on 'I'm Still Here' for It's about Hollywood's approach to mental illness. They throw Oscars at people playing them, but if you really have a mental issue you become a leper. Have a read. Cheers.

"Dude, where's my career?"

Also, off to to see this comedy legend tonight at the o2. Can't wait :-)
And, for anyone who's ever been in the throes of love...this is for you!

Oh, and if you've seen the new movie Devil in the flicks. This is advertised as being from the "mind of M. Night. Shyamalan," well according to this clip here that could be a little lie from the man with the biggest ego in Hollywood:
