My little brother was on Skype with me a minute ago. He said, “will you be watching it?”

“What do you think?” I spat, disbelievingly.

“I don’t know, that’s why I’m asking, ” he said.

“NO!” I said.

“NO?” he said, yet more disbelievingly, “why not? 2 billion people will be watching it! Something might happen!”

“If something happens, we’ll hear about it,” I said.

Sometimes I get the impression that Zef thinks I’m no fun.

Well, I get my fun. And most of the fun I’ve managed to extract from this foul publicity stunt/dastardly power harnessing ritual has involved making this remix, which I did for Eddy Temple Morris’ XFM show last week. I now present it to you, as a present. Feel free to smash some television sets to it.

    BRAINWASHING and PROPAGANDA combine to give the impression that a mad block of drooling masochists represent the feelings of a nation

    Love it. Even more so as it annoys purist Smithophiles.

    A colleague of mine at work (born in 1986 – she’s a hard-core manga/J & K-Pop fanatic) saw an indie boy (nerdy glasses, skinny buttoned cardie) with his boxers on display atop his skinny jeans and asked me “is that the Morrissey look, then?” “No,” I replied “He dressed better than that when he was younger.” Ahh, the ignorance of youth!
