Lets see what happens.
Lets see if anyones surprised.
Lets see if anyone really gives a shit.
just became my new favourite saying.
Is making me ill.
...but She looked like she'd forgotten how to speak the English language just then!
It's not like there is a really good album amongst the nominees...
i only have 5 channels. :(
about it. Shite. Like watching a victorious home counties rugby team pat themselves on the back and laugh at each others unfunny jokes for a couple of hours in the pub after a particularly daunting away victory in Guildford. Without the good music.
I've put the cricket on instead.
is Mahmood really as shite as the stats suggest? 11 off the last over he bowled....
As per usual. On that over he kept it tight for five balls and then INzi hit him for 6 on the last one.
Although Broad's got another wicket now. He's coming good. Ish.
I've made the right choice :)
and Pakistan have it in the bag.
Coupled with the fact it looks like we're about to go out of the FA Cup four fucking months before it even begins for most people, this isn't a great evening all round :(
you are refering to Gresley Rovers?
Live score ticker on the website tells me we've been taken to extra time by South Normanton Athletic. Whoever they are.
For fuck's sake.
I LOVE JON LEWIS
as I love him. I saw him first. Hands off bitch, he's MINE.
is bowling, he have lost :-(
we have definately lost :-(
Gosh this and the Arctic Monkeys winning, what a depressing 10 minutes.
it's a good album.
I didn't really like it, and I've heard it a lot from everyone else I seem to know having it and enjoying it. (Perhaps that's why it won eh?)
It's not bad, but I do believe that there has been far better released this year, but then again I'm not a Mercury Music Prize judge.
Gresley won 5-3 on penalties FA Cup First Qualifying Round here we come! We're on the road to Wembley! :)
South Normanton. A friend lives there. woop
They're out of the FA Cup. So I no longer care. Winner.
I would go so far as to say this is the Bizarro World Mercury Awards - in that you can pretty much guarantee the artist who wins is going to be some manner of horseshit.
See? The jumped up monobrow weedy school assembly approximation of a parody of Million Dead, the shittiest of the shit - the Arctic Monkeys.
Maybe this time next year, they'll be dead.
Nah, the cricket is where it's at anyway.
This is supposed to be based on the albums.
Who were they against ?
A lot of better albums, is the answer.
I may have to actually listen to the album again now
Lauren Laverne can fuck off
Ban request! It's THOM Yorke... :D
but it's a really annoying spelling
It was supposed to be funny. I failed. F.
I have a love/hate thing with him.
I love him because his (and radioheads) music has influenced me than anything else, and is amazing etc etc (giving a big "fuck you" stare at the start of the mercury performance)
I hate him because hes winy and annoying at times. Like at the end when he did that big sarcastic smile as if to say "ive had to pretend to be pleased to be here.
WELL JUST DONT GO. OR REFUSE TO DO IT OR SOMETHING.
"look I can be cheery too"
I'm sure he wouldn't have bothered going if it bothered him that much.
just caught the result on News 24. Well, the Artic Monkeys (just had to take my hands off the keyboard for patronising 'air punctuation'). How unutterably boring. The fact that I'm even commenting on this probably serves to grant some shred of legitimacy to this car crash of an award so I really ought to *Abandon reply*
But....we really should totally blank this bullshit next year. No criticism, just ignore it. If there's no audience, it means nothing. Like a tree falling in the forest when global warming has extinguished all sentient life. This year, we cut up the tree into small segments and burn it. Then grind the stump out. Next year we utter the word tree and are greeted by blank stares of incomprehension.
What the fuck am I talking about? I'm sure I had a point. Shut up. I am not drunk.
by saying that they went for the album they thought was best, ignoring sales and hype. I guess if they thought it was then it should win. But they should really have a limit of say 100/200,000 sales or something like the Shortlist prize in America had, otherwise it just seems silly.
The fact that Lauren Laverne was a judge pretty much proves how pointless it has become (well, probably always was)
I told you so.
The Arctic Monkeys was it?
FUCK, that is the most depressing thing i've heard all week, and that is saying something.
