NewsGush: Friday Night With Jonathan Arghhhh…

October 17, 2008

Oh Christ. It’s bad enough usually, but tonight Jonathan Ross is hosting his mate Wicky Gervais in what’s becoming an annual slime-festival. Don’t they ever learn, these people?

[Gervais]… admits to being a big X Factor fan: “I get caught up in it. When it’s a genuine human interest story, I cry.

“It’s very well done, they press the right buttons emotionally.”

… Ricky says.

What the fuck? What’s wrong with him?

Wicky’s got a film to promote but to heap further nausea on proceedings, celebrity bully and all round complete and utter cock Gordon Ramsay will be interviewed to inject a little bit of Nazi P.E. Teacher comedy to proceedings.

No doubt someone will say a rude word! And they might be a bit rude to each other! Oh, what larks!

Thankfully, the guest roster is completed by the brilliant Sarah Silverman. She’s a favourite round my house. Her sitcom was great and her stand up film Jesus Is Magic made me laugh my arse off.

Alright, I admit it. I fancy her.

The Friday Question: Can You Review In Haiku?

October 17, 2008

After an email from WWM HQ (my desk) went out requesting reviews from our regular writers (to what can only be called a ‘tepid’ response), I once again remind you good, good readers that you can feel free to send us your One Minute Reviews at any time.

Don’t be shy. You won’t get paid, but kudos is more valuable than any old ingot, isn’t it? Yes. It is.

Now then – as we’re lacking in reviews, I suggest we pool our resources and write very brief summations of popular programming. The concept is simple enough…

As you are aware, the Haiku is a  Japanese invention. All you need to do is create a poem of 3 lines with 5, 7 and 5 syllables per line respectively.

Got it?

Right – I’ll set the ball rolling.

Richard & Judy’s New Position
Far too many guests
On your garish red sofa
Someone dim the lights

Blue Peter
Is that Konnie Huq
Still in it? No? In that case
Stuff your Blue Peter

Holby City
Just occasionally
You see guts, blood and offal.
Mostly twats talking.

You can do better than that.

Let’s have ’em.
