Fantastic!

I see somebody or other won the Whatsit Grand Prix today, and another person extended their lead in the Driver's Championship.  Is this the dullest 'sport' ever?  Billions spent on watching a bunch of overpaid alpha playboys going around in circles, whilst commentators blither on about  tenths of a second , the weight of cars after fuelling and the protocol of pitstops.

Obviously, golf is duller, but that's not a sport, that's just middle aged men hiding from their wives...

I think the drivers get too much credit. I reckon it should be more like horse racing: each car should have its own name (they could even give them faces like Herbie) and they should report it like "Lewis Hamilton won the Brazilian Grand Prix today driving Captain's Fancy". It would take a bit getting used to, but it would be fairer all round.

Boring,boring,boring - I'd rather watch One Man And His Dog - if they'd put it back on again

PS - I never liked scalextric either

I like it, and have been to many race meetings including the British GP.
It's quite simple, if you don't like it, switch it off.

If we didn't watch the things we don't like, what would we blog about?
I was actually listening to 5Live in the hope of some football commentary. More Alan Green.

PM, Got the Orange and Pocket Pod. I'm thinking about a Martin again, as I spend more time on the acoustic...

qkgbqThey should put Alan Green on F1 when it moves to the BBC next year.
"And that was a WOEFUL passing move from Alonso. In fact, a worse overtaking manoeuvre I've yet to see. Ever. So there."

"qkgbq"
I think I typed the word verification in the wrong box. Oops.

You've got to get a Martin - I was on mine yesterday - Unreal. They sound incredible and are dream to play. DX1 is the way to go (you should be able to grab a bargain from Ebay). There's no ornamention on the DX1, but I find this allows the guitar to sound out a bit more

Mate of mines been playing for years, and when he had a go on my DX - he literally couldn't stop grinning the bass is great it rumbled his rib cage.

Hope your enjoying the Orange and Pod have you checked out

http://line6.com/customtone/

where you can download tons of tones for the pod?


If you want any other guitar info drop me a line - contact details are on my PM blog

I couldn't be bothered to read this post, as I'm having too much fun playing my brand new game Attila The Fun. If you can't be arsed to read Valentine's idiot bleatings either, why not pop along to my site and play my brand new online conquest game instead? I can GUARANTEE it'll be more fun than reading the childish warblings of this shagged-out, dole-scrounging, old nincompoop. CHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARGE!

Consider it done, Liv.
