Man Buns

Hurrah. The fixed gear bike riding, speciality pumpkin spice coffee supping, hackie sack and mandolin playing hipsters and fashionistas are dropping big beards!

They can now sod off and leave the beards to people who have beards simply because they want them, and not because it’s the new cool.

Now it’s Man Buns. Jesus H Christ, you hipsters are real douches.

Not man’s buns. Many people like a blokes arse. All men have them. Can’t be without mine.

I mean the head hair type bun.


Mind you, at least I won’t be mistaken for a Hipster now they’ve moved to a top knot instead of face fur.


That’s all I have to say about that, as Forest Gump would say.

PLAYBOY: ‘No more nudes’

Yes, that’s right… Hefner has said there’ll be no more nudes in Playboy.

His reasoning is that the Internet has given access to all sorts of porn, 24/7, so it’s kind of redundant in his magazine anymore. Now it’ll be clothed models and in depth articles. I guess this does bring it off of the top shelf and allows the plain cover to be removed, giving it a wider audience.


Schrödinger’s Terrorist

Look! A bandwagon! JUMP ON IT! Why not? Every one else is.

Yes, Osama Bin Laden is dead.

And alive.

It really depends on whether you believe the news. We are so used to lies and cover-ups it is no wonder that people are questioning whether Osama really has been killed.

The events of the day really to add fuel to the conspiracy theorists. Osama was killed in a raid by US soldiers and he was then buried at sea. Sometimes things do happen just like the news says and there is no conspiracy…. but where’s the fun in that?

Lot’s of people are saying that he’s not really dead – after all, there is no body. Both pro and anti Osama groups are questioning the validity of these claims – and both pro and anti Osama groups are accepting the claims. The world is ripe for disinformation right now.

So… Why lie about his death? It’s good for votes and popularity if you are in anti camp. The thing is, the latest polls say that POTUS Obama didn’t really gain much from this.

Okay… why dump the body as soon as possible? Well, that way people won’t have a grave or place to gather, rally or protest. With no burial site, there is no focal point for anything (Sure, people will find a place and associate it to him, but it’s not the same).

Maybe the body was dumped because he was captured alive and then executed there and then. That would do away with the red tape and legal hearings etc, etc, etc…

I’m happy to accept the news as it has been given, but if I had to come up with a conspiracy theory, here are a few things I’d look at with the limited data I have…

My half-arsed theory…

Would I kill him? Hell no! This guy is the head of the largest terrorist group around. He’s the main man, the knowledge base of all evil… he’s too valuable to kill. Think about what he knows?

Trouble is, capturing him is a problem. If you lock him up for questioning you end up being a focal point for hoards who want to rip him to shreds or  get him to safety. All the time he is alive the terror groups will blow things up to try to get him back. Hell, even bleeding heart liberals will protest for him to have rights and a fair trial. Anyway, with him gone someone else will just take his place… His death won’t end a thing.

So…. Why not capture him, tell the world he is dead, and that the body was dumped at sea? When no body turns up the terror groups will eventually have to accept he is dead. Let’s face it – if the whole raid was a lie, then eventually he’ll turn up anyway, and a whole lot of people will have a whole lot of questions to answer…

If you capture him but then say he was killed, you then have all the time in the world to ‘question’ him. No one will be there to defend him, try to free him, protest for or against his life… after all… he’s already dead.

You’ll have all the un-legislated, un-lawful drugs and devices to use to interrogate him… You can find out all about Al-Qaeda and their structure, plans, strengths etc…  after all, a dead man has no human rights…. You can ditch the body in years to come when he has absolutely nothing left to offer.

Whatever happened, why worry yourself? You don’t have enough support, ability or resources to find out any information on what really happened, so just trust the news on this one….


Fairytale of New York

Okay, X-Factor was knocked to the number 2 UK chart position for the Christmas number 1 single… beaten by a social networking pushed project – Rage Against The Machine took the number 1 spot as people stood up to the Cowell lead X-Factor machine.

The thing is it needed to be done – but no-one will argue that RATM’s song isn’t exactly “Christmassy”….

As such, just before Christmas I decided to push for a Christmas number 1 that is Christmassy…. and what could be better than “Fairytale of New York”….

FAIRYTALE OF NEW YORK XMAS No.1 2010 and @FairytaleNY2010

Fairytale of New York has never been number 1 in the UK, yet is often voted as the best Christmas song out – so I figured it was about time we got it to number 1…

Added to this, it is the 10th anniversary of the sad and tragic death of Kirtsy MacColl, when she was hit by a speed boat in dive restricted waters whilst on holiday. This tragedy has never been properly resolved – and after 9 years of fighting for justice the case has finally run out of anywhere to go as the authorities have closed the door on it.

The day people will need to buy Fairytale of New York to make it count for a Christmas chart release is the day after the 10th anniversary of this untimely passing of Kirsty – so getting Fairytale of New York to number 1 will be a tribute, a return to a Christmassy song for Christmas, and another kick in the teeth to those that set up TV shows to force a manufactured number one.

Fairytale of New York is not a manufactured number one – Sure we will be pushing to get it there, but for over a decade it has been in the Christmas charts and it is a well loved song. It hasn’t just been made up to grab money for Simon Cowell…

This project is still in the initial stages, but much like RATM, we will be making sure Fairytale of New York does good. As such there will be a charity donation system set up. This will all be sorted as the project progresses.

I have contacted various people within The Pogues camp, and also to Kirsty MacColl’s mother. I would like them to be involved as this would be very important to the project.

There is a Facebook page set up : FAIRYTALE OF NEW YORK XMAS No.1 2010

I won’t be able to do this on my own, so FTONY isn’t an “I” thing… it is a “WE” project – and I am currently being ably assisted by Phil Karn (met thanks to Twitter). There may be more people called in to help – and we’ll be grateful for any help!

I have started this group early as I want to build up the numbers of followers throughout the year. For most of the year the group will be a little quiet – just general chat and news – I don’t want people to burn out too soon!

As the time to buy draws near come November/December 2010 I shall then kick the group into action with group emails to ramp up the drive to get that number one spot.

You can also follow via Twitter with @FairytaleNY2010

If you want to get involved, you can email me at fairytale@sometimespace.com

Please spread the word!

Let’s get a Christmas song to Christmas number one – a song that has not been there before… and we can all remember Kirsty MacColl at the same time!

Thank you!
