If morality is subjective then why not live it up? If God is dead all things are lawful. If there is no God why not let sex be your god and use as many other humans as possible to fulfill ones personal pleasures. Darwin taught us the survival of the fittest right?

It turns out that it was the Walkman that has broken Britain, according to not-at-all-crazy AN Wilson.

I really don't want to look at the comments section there, but it's so tempting. Can someone confirm that it's as bad as you'd imagine? (Poor little girl, staring wistfully into the distance, wishing for a real mummy and daddy.)

The plugs that go into the ears are a wonderful source of bacteria so unless they are sterilised before each use they are a germ playground.

First comment.

don't know the research and I am not homophobic but it is only common sense that tells me children must surely have a better chance in life with a married heterosexual couple and that is who they should be put with.

Nah, doesn't mention house prices or Gordon Brown. Still, not far off.

BTW, this line in the Wislon piece cracked me up:

By the time they are 35, this generation will have experienced serious hearing loss. Of that, medical research is in no doubt whatsoever

Such meaningless nonsense, on so many levels. You've almost got to admire it.

Much as AN Wilson lurches inevitably into egregious excess and shrieking hysteria, the following, early, and crucially understated, paragraph is OTM:

For those of us who liked getting on a bus or a train and overhearing, or even taking part in, conversations, there is something a bit bleak about the dozens of private solitudes which nowadays clamber aboard.

...so much so, that my entry into the ILX poetry competition is basically about this very trend.

every time i'm on public transport and have to talk to a stranger it's inevitably a drug addict or someone just out of jail who wants me to give them a pound and has some sob story about having to go somewhere to beat up their father/girlfriend/big brother or whatever so i say bring on more people minding their own fucking business.

One of my friends once overheard a murder being planned on a bus and phoned the police when he got off. The guys were going up to an acquaintances flat to stab him and rob his house.

languid samuel l. jackson (jim), Monday, 18 May 2009 00:16 (5 years ago) Permalink

he told them where they were getting off and what they looked like, but he never found out what happened.

Yikes. And who is that stupid to say what they're doing out loud on a bus!?

it's one of the strengths of the mail that they *always* get all these details. should really have asked what his kids think of the changes though.

the mail's gallery of "abbey road"-inspired record covers includes "split with methadone abortion clinic" by screaming afterbirth. wonder if paul dacre is a fan.

Too bad that guy can't go out at night, cos there's no way you'd want to leave the house in daylight looking like that.

Haven't checked properly, but I think they are basically all the same albums, but just in a different order.

Their record label said it wouldn't sell because it did not feature the names of the band or the LP.

Yes, I can imagine EMI thinking that the new Beatles album might not sell...

It's true though that there's no way anyone would have recognised a photo of them in the 60s. They were quite low profile I think.

To be fair, it was John Kosh who said about "EMI said it won't sell", as stated in the Telegraph.

To be blunt, clearly the Daily Mail nicked the whole article, photos and all.
