Thoughts about current issues and what's going on in the world as well as little reviews of things and handy links.

I get annoyed when people say things like "well, She was the only one of the Spice Girls that could actually sing", or "He was the talented one from Take That" as they are invarably wrong (She can't and He hasn't any). Similarly the people who used to say "Unlike so-and-so Alyson Moyet can actually sing" should have heard her struggling her way through 'Windmills of your Mind' on Radio 4 earlier. It's one thing being able to belt out a MOR power ballad with gusto but don't think middle age can suddenly turn you into a Bassey-esque diva with superpowers that'll get you through the classics.

Tsk.
