I signed up for Twitter a couple of Christmases ago. Bored, having spent hours upon hours watching E4, including multiple repeats of a bizarre rape-themed episode of Veronica Mars, I decided to go online and see what all the fuss was about. I’d used Facebook and Myspace before, but Twitter, it seemed, gave its users the impression that they were friends with the likes of Barack Obama, Gary Busey and Tori Spelling. You could communicate with these people, write them little jokey comments or just plain insult them.
If you’ve ever plunged the depths of a bargain bin filled with DVDs then it’s likely that you’ve seen the cover of this film, buried no doubt under a pile of dozens of unsold copies of other bargain bin classics like “Carnosaur 3: Primal Species”. I swear I’ve seen these two films hundreds of times over the years, which leads me to believe that either there are a lot of these films out there or that I just keep happening to come across the same dozen or so copies that are perpetually bought and then sold back to secondhand DVD shops.
First The Daily Sport and now this. The News of the World is scheduled to cease publication, leaving behind a legacy of celebrity scoops, tits and adverts. Admittedly, it was an awful paper, but it had it’s moments, didn’t it? I can’t think of anything off the top of my head, but it has been being published for, like, you know, ages. That story about Wayne Rooney’s hair or something? I mean, I didn’t read it, but it looked funny from what I can tell. It was something about his hair.
