coventry city fans at arsenal

After yet another scintillating display by Manchester United tonight, and yet another defeat, l need a fix of something football related to cheer me up.
Luckily, there is this.  Coventry City fans singing 'Twist and Shout' during the half time interval at Arsenal.
Who says football fans don't have a sense of humour?

pop stars being cool

To follow on from Bronski Beats Jimmy Somerville joining in with a busker, here's some more pop stars being cool.  First off, Marc Almond singing along to a video he was shown of  floppy disc drives playing Soft Cell's 'Tainted Love.'

Plus Donovan, joining in with a busker in Glasgow, and performing 'Sunshine Superman'.  More from the Donovan busk can be found here.

If only all pop stars were like this.

oxford united against manchester united (and modern football)

Every year it gets worse! It is now 39 years since l went to this game, watching the glorious Manchester United (who l supported) in the Second Division (old school) getting beaten by Oxford United at the old Manor Ground (with Jonathan Knapp - who was (and still is)  an Oxford United supporter.
The way it is going this year, l may get to see Manchester United in the (old school) Second Division again.
I'm sick of the way football has been (and still is) heading in it's non fan related money at all costs superstar players and corrupt owners direction,  and wanted a return to 1970's football, and l have now got it.
Be careful what you wish for!

hear what russell has to say

Russell Brand.  He is very funny, but annoys people, can come across like a twat, and is waaaaaaaaaaay to full of himself (it appears, not that l have a problem with him).  On the other hand, he also talks a lot of sense. Especially when it comes to tragic drugs related deaths and the analysis of them.
In this case, Philip Hoffman Seymour.

Read this piece.

this is a trent reznor song

Nine Inch Nails and Trent Reznor - l love 'em!  However, this piss take is spot on and really well done.

But....... to appreciate the real thing, here are some examples

And one of their newer (friendlier) songs.  Towards the end you get a sample of their new  light show, which is amazing.  Even if I still preferred them in the Woodstock Festival 1994  years, they are still great.
