Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Is it a bee?


I L.O.V.E British comedy.

I guess that's quite a common thing.
But being a foreigner living in the UK it's been a real treat to get to know British culture in a totally different way.
Jokes that might not translate to other cultures I now totally get and can spend a whole evening laughing about. I now know what chav culture is and can sympathise with all the Vicky Pollard's living here and having loads of babies from a very young age. The obese women who attend numerous weight loss classes and then go straight to the pub for beer and fish n' chips. The absolutely loaded women who live in Madia Vale / Holland Park and spend their days shopping and getting some work done on their faces. I know because I share the city with them. So when I watch how they are being portrayed I no longer laugh and see them from an outsiders perspective. I now laugh and feel connected to them at the same time. And that is big in my world.

When I saw this clip from the Catherine Tate Show I instantly though of a friend who is gay and from Northern Ireland. He hasn't told his parets and countless brother and sisters that he's gay even though he's been in a relationship for several years. Instead of just laughing at the sketch I saw the darker side in a totally different light. When I moved here I didn't have any friends or a job and lived in a rundown council area and Catherine's clip made me think of all the boys who used play football outside my tiny window or dragging a buggy with a small child even though they were still children themselves.

On a brighter note: Eddie, is it a bee? The classic!


It's better to burn out than fade away


Granny of rock Courtney Love (83) is on the cover of this months issue of POP Magazine. We can't wait to read the interview as she seems to be back on track again. A new face lift and a boyfriend who just left his teens behind him seem to have done wonders for her. She has also reportedly been supporting Whitney to clean up and stay away from crack cocaine. So she seems to get nicer as she gets older.
In one of last months issues of NME she spoke about the loss of Kurt and how her lifestyle has affected her. She poignantly spoke about missing her life living in Seattle with Kurt in a basement apartment just the two of them with their little girl and that she wished that they had spent more time together doing nice things.
We hope that she can stay clean for a while at least and we are planning to read Dirty Blonde: The Diaries of Courtney Love this week.

Amy Winehouse: They try to make me go to rehab


This week we are lovin' Amy Winehouse and her stunning new single 'Rehab'.
A future classic if you ask me with more than subtle references to Motown of course.
Usually I don't like her at all. Mainly because she always looks so dirty and unwell and that scares me a bit, honestly.
There is something so deeply unsexy with someone who has obvious talent and then just let's it waste away. Or at least shower! (Think Amy and Pete Doherty naked.) Yuck!
An old flatmate of mine used to play pool with Ms Wine-house and he said she was a bit strange come to think of it.
This single is a corker though and it's on repeat in our ipod.

Burberry Blur VS. The Chelsea Hotel incident


It annoys me quite a bit that the UK press this week tries to make Kate Moss and Pete Doherty into the new Sid and Nancy. I mean, come on! Sid and Nancy both came from troubled backgrounds filled with drugs and abuse and got catapulted into the headlines due to their hard, drug fuelled lifestyle. Sid was in the Sex Pistols without being able to play an instrument and Nancy was a stripper and a prostitute and a groupie. They found each other in London when Nancy went there to try and score a New York Doll. They both were dead before the even had a chance to turn 22.

Kate and Pete paint an entirely different picture.

Kate is anything but a stripper. She's a fuckin' supermodel!
She's like over 30 and had a kid a couple of years ago and since her drug scandal she doubled her fortune and is now worth £60 million. Pete has obvious talent and the way he just let's it waste away is giving me a headache just thinking about it. He's ugly as well. And that's bad.

Regarding the parallels to the music I guess one could say that both Babyshambles and Sex Pistols have emerged as a response to what is perceived to be the increasingly safe and manufactured pop music on the charts back then and still today.
(A couple of months ago NME had it's cover story being that pop music such as Girls Aloud and Sugababes were dead the result being the 'babes doing a fierce cover of Arctic Monkey's 'I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor'.)

But to argue that Kate 'n Pete are the new Sid and Nancy is just ridiculous.
Nancy was a heroin addict.
Kate advertises Burberry bags.
Sid plunged a steak knife into his own hand.
Pete squirted fake blood on a TV camera on MT fuckin V.
Notice the slight difference?

See the sugary girls sing Arctic Monkey's at the NME awards. The hight of irony. No knife but lip gloss.
