When You Begin To Wonder What They Are Putting In The 'Guardian' Watercooler...


Eh...? Who...?

*googles*

OK, Suzanne, how the hell does the death of some 'rap star' in the US (probably by another 'rap star') show anything at all about UK drug policy?

*reads article*
Another tormented genius has gone. New drugs and new music, perhaps. But the same old story. The torments are actually carried out on the broken bodies of women and gay men. “Troubled” masculinity kicks down, always down. Into the darkest places of all.
Nope. I'm none the wiser.

They only started gibbering 'rap' when 'reggae' started to be even more boring than it originally was when it was liked by Prince Charles.

Rap = 'rubbish an' pricks'.

You must have a regular happy week!

Heh!

"They only started gibbering 'rap' when 'reggae' started to be even more boring than it originally was..."

I'm partial to a bit of reggae, at least it's usually tuneful!

Ah, the good old 'Eye'. And welcome back, Lynne! You've been missed here.

I've been busy moving house. I finally got my desktop out of mothballs a few days ago. It's good to be back. Thanks for missing me. :D
