just copying out the lyrics from a mountain goats song because i am productive–dead today

the mountain goats – the best ever death metal band out of denton

the best ever death metal band out of denton
were a couple of guys who'd been friends since grade school
one was named cyrus, and the other was jeff
and they practiced twice a week in jeff's bedroom
the best ever death metal band out of denton
never settled on a name
but the top three contenders, after weeks of debate
were satan's fingers, and the killers, and the hospital bombers

jeff and cyrus believed in their hearts they were headed
for stage lights and lear jets and fortune and fame
so in script that made prominent use of a pentagram
they stencilled their drumheads and guitars with their names
this was how cyrus got sent to the school
where they told him he'd never be famous
and this was why jeff in the letter's he'd write to his friend
helped develop a plan to get even
when you punish a person, for dreaming his dream
don't expect him to thank or forgive you
the best ever death metal band out of denton
will in time both outpace and outlive you
hail satan
hail satan
tonight hail satan
hail hail

john darnielle is pretty much a genius

A prediction, yes

England will not qualify for the 2008 European Championships.

Thank me in about a year's time when people cotton on to what a complete fucking ineptotron Steve McClaren is.

Goodbye Sven, etc

And England bid farewell to Sven, their most consistent manager of all time. Few fans are sad to see him go, after all, how dare he lose twice on penalty shootouts and once to Brazil? I mean, England had an empire and everything, we should be teaching these Johnny Foreigners how the game should be played. Luckily we have true Englishman McClaren coming in, whose past record proves beyond all doubt that he won't capitulate to a foreign side at a crucial moment. Above all, he would never play a player as bad as Owen Hargreaves, who is quite clearly incapable of having a decent game, as the press (loyal England supporters to a man) have been admirably pointing out for so long. I mean, he plays for some tiny side in Germany, how could he be any good?!?

And of course Beckham should be dropped, why play Real Madrid's best player (according to most of the Spanish press, who are not English and therefore know nuffink) when you can play a guy who finished 90 minutes for Spurs once last season? One goal and two assists out of the six goals England scored? Playing on despite vomiting on the pitch? Bursting into tears because you've been injured and had to be subbed off? You should be ashamed David, and you need to learn to give 100% in future.

The whole tournament has been a massive disappointment for England. They had quite clearly one of the best squads there, as proven by the way quality, world–reknowned players such as Jenas, Bridge, Carson and Downing can't even get into the first XI.

But the future is bright. I think that under McClaren, England will have an extremely successful 2008 European Championships, playing attractive attacking football, and certainly won't fail abysmally and lose to Croatia and Russia in qualifying because they have a mediocre coach who is way out of his depth. Football will be coming home.

lackluster thursday explosion

Hello. I believe today is the day of the "Final Fling". Jolly good. Enough said about that dungheap, now onto interesting things.

Would quite like to watch Duck Soup, but my copy on video is many many miles away, in a much better city than this one (London). Download things are of no help, because they are full of nothing but crap, such as Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I am contenting myself with scenes that have been uploaded to Youtube, the website so good that it is sponsored by Christ.

Have spent much of the last week musing on the various football ongoings, but today broadened into a combination of football and why clubs suck. Concluded that it is because dark, noisy, crowded rooms are the least social places around, apart from dark, noisy rooms that are empty.

Think I might turn on the LastFM and see if it will play me something that is not shit. Eventually it did! Blackalicious! (Alphabet Aerobics). Anyone who denies the ability of Gift of Gab is pretty much a failure of evolution.
