And so it came to pass that one of the bastard children of the annual Calendar, February, would cease to exist for another year and replacing it will be March, the other bastard child. For centuries, February remains unnoticed, unloved, overrated…or underrated…or meh; not as grandiose as the Mighty December, not as joyful as the Teeming Trio of June, July and August and not as hazy as the Hungover January. Yes, this is February: über meh….apart from a few revolutions here and there….
#1 You won’t fool Jasmine out of the revolution
Tunisia, Egypt, China, Libya, Bahrain, Morocco, Gabon, Algeria and Iran have turned up their revolution songs up to 11 (well except China thanks to their super-cencors). Over the past 28 days an air of change is sweeping the east side of the globe, where regimes have crumbled and fallen as the people fight for democracy. Libya is on the brink and now we can only hope for Burma & Iran to follow suit.
Hm. I felt sort of sick giving out an inspirational message there. No biggie. Will neutralise that with my usual service next…
#2 And the winner for the World’s Most Ugliest Toenail (Non-Fiction) goes to…..
Awards season. The glitz, the glamour and the that gut wrenching feeling you get after noticing how terrible these awards are. The BRITs and the Grammys were the pinnacle of all things turd (apart from Arcade Fire’s multiple wins): Lady GaGa wasn’t boiled or fried, Justin Bieber was flirting with James Cordon and I puked so many times that the only thing missing are two baby penguins.
# 3 Six Nations: Making the “Super Bowl seem like Paris Hiltonised rugby”
I may not keep with the rugby as much but my God it’s far more entertaining than the Superbowl. The Superbowl to many of us (us Europeans anyway) is a hybrid of pansy Gladiators and rugby with very little emphasis on ‘football.’ The only reason I switched it on was because I was hoping to catch a glimpse of those legendary Superbowl ads….then I forgot I was on BBC1.
