  1. The bugger muscles in on everybody’s set.


  2. Q. Has Gavin Rossdale lost any cred he might have had, since becoming a judge on ‘The Voice’?

    A. Who gives a fuck?


          • Never ‘eard of ’em – or him.

            Very Cobainesque

            Never watched ‘The voice’ either for that matter.


            • I watched it for the first time last week, but couldn’t recommend it: I assume that the other Saturday night ‘talent’ shows are just as bad. I suspect that Rossdale has taken some bad advice from his agent or record company about ‘expanding his profile’ in Britain, or something.


              • To be honest, I’ve never watched any of them – X-factor, Britain’s Got Mediocrity, etc – so I suppose I’m not qualified to comment.

                The hype and sense of media-generated false importance that surrounds them is enough to put me off.

                The same goes for The Apprentice, that thing in the jungle, Stricty Come Dancing and all soap operas.

                I suppose I’m just a miserable old git.

                Why I even have a TV is a bit of a mystery.


                • I agree. I have never watched any of those things either, and never will. I watched The Voice because I saw that Rossdale was going on it and, having liked Bush for about 20 years, I was intrigued enough to check it out. He did seem like a fish out of water, and didn’t manage to recruit any of the ‘performers’ to coach. I suspect that they wanted to have a token ‘rock’ representative, and he probably made a bad career move.
