Porn mags and tea bags


It’s been a full week, as seems to be the way these days. Saw HK Singers perform ‘Anything Goes’ at City Hall Sunday afternoon, and yay, it were ace. We laffed in all the right places, clapped along and thoroughly enjoyed it. I nearly died when the tap-dancers came out. I’ll admit I’m a sucker for good tap-dancing, and they were so very, very ace. Loved it, loved it, loved it.

Friend Of A Friend came back from Blighty recently and brought us obligatory gifty-gift-gifts (hence today’s title). Apart from a large box of Yorkshire tea bags (red label), which will secure him a place in our hearts for a long time to come, he brought us girlie porn. A copy of The Fortean Times has been very good company fert past week as I trundle along, MTR-bound, to work. Just as good as it always was, when I used to read it religiously way back int day. (This actually qualifies as geek porn, I suppose.) The other publication he brought, knowing praps I’d get very very excited as only a girl can when faced wi such a fab piece of full-on girlie porn in print, were the first issue of the official ‘Supernatural’ magazine. While it’s been great and I’ve been poring over most pages enjoying the fact that someone cares enough about the show to put it all together, I’ve been hit wi a dilemma too. The centrefold is reversible. Finally – a full-on, glossy, high-quality shot of the Impala (or rather, ‘the Metallicar’, as its apparently been dubbed by fans). How made-up am I wi a nice big, clear shot of her? Fab. You know that’s getting saved – and going on the old cork board of fame. Trouble is, guess what’s on the back? Yep – The Boys. Hmm.


Sorry boys – we get oodles of pics of you two, and none of the Impala, so she stays. You two are getting relegated to next month’s centrefold. Apart from the obvious flashy glossy pictures, it’s also delivering on all gossip, information, profiles, trivia and Q&A aspects too. Just ace. Interesting fact of the week, kiddies:


Eric Kripke, the God that is the series creator, originally wanted none other than fellow deity Bruce Campbell to play John Winchester – and he’s still trying to find a way to bring him in as a guest star.

How fab is that? As if the series couldn’t get any better! The mighty Bruce Campbell in the show? Think I’d die happy. Which explains praps the few and far between but nonetheless present references to ‘Evil Dead’ (and if the season two episode ‘Hollywood Babylon’ wasn’t a complete parody / homage to this film then I’ll… er… be wrong). Thing is though, I love Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Dad Winchester. Having only seen him in maybe TV dinner fare like ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ before that, I took to him very very easily in ‘Supernatural’. He’s ace as the dad, I have to say, and I hate to think that we may never see him again. He were such a cool character, such a good strong lead for the pilot and every episode he made it into, that it’s a hyowj shame he’s gone and pretty much done and dusted. Or is he? Or is he? [‘OR IS HE?’ – Hugh Laurie.] In a continuity kinda way, I can see where Dean is supposed to have got his whole ‘smooth at being rough’ thing from. In a word: phwooar. (Which begs the question: What happened wi Sam? Just joking. Kinda.)

Anyway, onto other points as have caught my attention: American Idol and the bloke I want to win. I can’t decide, in a Scissor Sisters kinda way, if I want Michael Johns (Aussie Rocker Dude) or David Cook (Actual Rocker Dude) to win. Mr Johns has done some fantastic Doors and Simple Minds covers – yes, Randy Jackson, it was Simply Minds, not INXS, who did ‘Don’t You Forget About Me’. Praps I misunderstood, but he seemed to imply that it were by INXS, as they’re also Aussies. Anyway, Mr Johns is ace and gets my vote just cos he performs and does excellent songs. However, David Cook did that bloody excellent rendition of the Lionel Ritchie song last week, and for that we love him. I spose we’ll have to wait till tomorrow night to see what they give us this time. Hopefully they’ll also be ace, and Simon Cowell will finally agree with purr wee Mr Johns’ song choice for a change.

One gripe, American Idol producer/marketing people – why are the audition songs only available to buy on the US store for iTunes? Surely you can sell these to the world? As is the whole point with selling the show to air on so many different networks around the globe int first place? Don’t be stingy – we want our Michael Johns songs!

Right, that’s yer onion, I’m off to bed. Three wins at three pub quizzes in one week takes it out of you. Peach and lube everyone, and I’ll see you all very soon.
