"At some point in 2007, a bunch of people realised that they hadn't been laid for the entirety of the four years they'd been listening to dubstep, and f%$^E@ off to make something that sounded like the exact opposite of it."
"Maybe the white smoke means the Vatican has a new meth lab." David Feldman
"Speak when you are angry and you will make the best speech you will ever regret." Ambrose Bierce
"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails." Mark Twain Twain again….
And on and on… think you've done enough with them quotes now Troup…
So what about Jim Bowen being the Pope eh…
"The resurrection of Stoned Fox: British artist's badly-stuffed creation enjoys a second life as a Russian internet celebrity."
For all students of Stoned Fox you must know all there is to know before you go talking about him. Know your meme here. "Stoned Fox (???????? ????) is a Russian photoshop meme in which a cutout image of a stuffed fox is superimposed into different base images of various humorous contexts. The nickname has been approximately translated as Stoned Fox and Autistic Fox.
"Crossover" doesn't sound like a bad word, and it isn't, if you work for Universal. To the rest of us, however, it means "compromise", "committee" and "test audience". It means "Ed Sheeran is the man to unite the rap game and the folk game". It means Bruno Brookes' HSBC radio."
