What are you actually doing mate.
What a cunt
don't like him but he's been part of the olympics, not bad for a friday night
THEY BROUGHT HORSES TO OUR CULTIVATED LANDS
THEY GAVE POWER TO OUR HAVE NOTS
Yet every other week there's a thread about him.
and its endearing when you think that the guy who screamed Bovine Spongiform Economics just opened the olympic opening ceremony.
I said three things.
1. Fucking hell. Is that James Morrison? I fucking hate James Morrison. What a cunt.
2. What the fuck are those goats doing?
3. Shit me, that's Frank Turner. What the .... [no words]
I genuinely, 100% thought it was James Morrison. The sound was off and we were quite a long way from the TV.
I'm not having a go at Frank Turner, I was chuffed when I realised it was actually him when it did a close up on his face after he took off his designer sunglasses.
here are some lyrics from the Million Dead song 'Bread and Circuses'
It’s time to celebrate, to come out and play – we’ve been counting down the days.
We’re as sick with expectation as we are with what we’re escaping.
We are so grateful for our new state-funded stately pleasure dome.
and in another Million Dead song, Charlie and the Propaganda Myth Machine, he warns against being sucked in by evil entities such as... Cadbury and McDonalds haha !
ultimately tho, I can't bring myself to dislike Frank Turner. it just seems weird that he has now played Wembley and the Olympics.
and done so quite publicly
he's usually pretty critical/cynical about that sort of thing whenever interviewers try to frame him as a Political Songwriter, especially one of the left.
A total "wtf?!" moment for want of a better phrase
What a fucking loser!
