Sounds tasty.

######ing awful. Absolutely ######ing awful. It took both sides 30 minutes to realise that I meant what I said and well into the second half before it got through their thick skulls that I wasn't tolerating their whining. Easily the least enjoyable game I've ever refereed and I'm still wondering what else I could have done bar red card both captains before kick-off.

At least the away team had the good grace to admit after the game that it was their problem that they kept getting caught cheating.

Games like that make me wonder why I bother. :angry:

Had quite a good day with technology.

Got an iPhone and managed to set it up without a hitch. There's normally something goes wrong with a new contract/phone.

Re-established the wireless connection in the house which has caused me no end of trouble.

Finally sorted out the HDMI connection for the new telly/V+ box.

Tomorrow, in the course of my work, I shall be visiting a motorcycle showroom, a warehouse, and an abandoned factory. Its like being Scooby Doo.

You must be a teacher then, cos you'll no doubt be with some pesky kids.

Sky Sports Jenna Brooks to Jake Connor regarding England selection : "Shaun Wane has said that he's spoken to you about why you were left out, he's also said he's told you what you needed to do more of, I'm interested, what do you need to do more of and did you do it tonight?"

Jake Connor : "I don't know, to be honest I haven't spoken to him."

People are idiots.

Whilst it's very nice to see Laughing Len chart at no. 36 with his version of Hallelujah, the dullards appear to be downloading the Various Positions version.

It's the one off Cohen Live you want you bunch of fools.

As corny karoake versions go this isn't bad at all

I agree. Although it is the idiots who bought the terrible Cohen version that ballsed it up. I bought the Jeff Buckley version only to see that idiots were downloading the identical track but from his greatest hits one, therefore spreading out the d/ls and ensuring that ##### x-factor bint got to number 1.

To be fair, she did 'win' by 567,000 to 80,000 (1st v 2nd) so even allowing for people downloading the 'Radio Edit' Buckley or the couple of Cohens I don't think it would have mattered.

It wasn't even close.

Anyone know what royalty the writer gets on a track download these days?

Yowsers! Just goes to show how many people will buy ###### because they are told to. It is a truly awful version.

It's not awful, it's just soul-less. She only sang that song because she was told to... Simon Cowell's marketing people probably worked out that it had the best chance to be the big money earner for them.

Maybe old-age paranoia creeping in but much of the music nowadays reminds me of the bits in 1984 where they discuss mass-produced populist pish music for the proletariat to keep them happy. :D

Edit: THIS is awful. It is safe for work in that there's no sweary words or nudity but I take no responsibility for what you might do to your computer or any small animals nearby when you watch it.

Edit2: THIS is the worst rendition of Hallelujah anywhere... ever... Bono is just pish.

There are far worse versions of Hallelujah out there as a quick skim of YouTube will confirm.

I will never forgive you for that link though.

Next year's Christmas number one?

~Bon Jovi did an ok-ish version of Hallelujah.

Surprised no-one has mentioned Katherine Jenkin's version also out at the mo - if only for an excuse to put photos of her on the board.

Awful, awful, awful, awful, awful ...

:dry:
