With the first week of the Olympics completed, the games has already been a huge success for team GB, London as a host city, and of course, armchair pundits.

Everybody is talking about him, and by everybody, I mean the news media. And that is exactly what he wanted.

Democratising people power? Or misleading and manipulative propaganda? Either way, if Joseph Kony is captured then all the sharing will have been worth it.

Operation Cup of Tea

Posted on 9:29pm Wednesday 10th August 2011

The reaction to the riots in London and other UK cities has prompted widespread dismay, and just because the voices of a few anarchists are loudest does not mean they will prevail...nor be listened to, whatever it is they're trying to say.

Lots of things have happened since I last posted, here are some of my thoughts on how they have bee covered (especially in the press).

Andy Gray and Richard Keys have rekindled an awkward subject for people like me everywhere. Thanks.

The Lib-Dem election campaign video is laughable now. Also the nature of student protest means two opposites are being awkwardly juxtaposed together, like Shaun Ryder and Gillian McKeith.

BT's Vision

Advertisements have come under strain in recent years. BT have attempted to cope through appealing to audience's emotions and asking them even to vote what happens next...

Sensationalist media, a 'treacherous' thing that should be 'under pressure' in times of 'recession', alas it just annoys a lot of people.

As I and many others begin to think about voting in a general election for the first time, there are already issues in deciding who to vote for.

Rage Against the X Factor

The facebook group that attempted to shock the charts succeeded, against the will of many in the industry but to the delight of those who were sick of X Factor winners claiming Christmas number one.

Agree or disagree with the current war, there has always been an inconsistancy in the west's militaristic policy.

The Daily Mail's Big Fail...hopefully

St Albans & Harpenden Review: Photograph of the Author

Posted on

It appears the newspaper at the centre of igniting controversies such as the Russell Brand and Jonathon Ross row of indecency, have had a role reversal in the form of Jan Moir's insensitive and unnecessarily insulting article over Stephen Gately's death. Even advertisers want their ads removed from the online article after the social networking site Twitter extraordinarily sparked a reposte from celebrities and 'normal folk' alike.

A bit random, but the other day my family and I somehow came across old family relics from the loft. It got me thinking rather philosophically...which made a nice change from the usual cynicism!

The music industry is one of the most difficult to succeed in, but is the music now really the most prominent factor in a musician's rise to fame.

I think everyone who doesn't support the reds were desperately willing Liverpool on for most of this season (apart from Chelsea fans).

Financial losses, mass job cuts, UP TO* 50% off sale, customer frustration, stock shortages and staff discomfort. It's all part of Christmas in the Woolworth's house! *note: they've made the "up to" part particularly small on all the signs, so I thought I'd make it more apparent.
