Smash Hits Hurt!

Have been off work now for 2 days with a frozen neck and it’s beginning to get on my nerves. The most annoying thing is laughing, I’m still my big bundle of fun self but whenever I laugh it hurts.

Well it’s official! Smash Hits magazine is closing down. No more will spotty girls be able to find out what a boy band member’s favourite colour is. Nor will they be able to get a free pink fur fabric purse embossed with a picture of Busted stuck to the cover in rippy tape. No it is sooo sad.

I would like to give you my memories of Smash Hits magazine. I was about fifteen years old and went into W.H.Smith where I saw on the shelf a copy of Smash Hits magazine, I remember that I bought a Maplin catalogue and left saying goodbye to the lady behind the counter. Ah happy days!

Also today I caught this headline on BBC site “The editor of a French newspaper is sacked for printing a cartoon featuring the Prophet Muhammad”

Back in the early days of this Century, I made some money by saying the odd funny thing in public. On one of these occasions a fellow funny talker told me that I should write a blog (because that was the sort of thing funny talking people did back then.) Now, I’m not the sort of person who does things the easy way, so I rejected all the ready made blogging platforms and started my own website. Since then it’s become a repository for whatever stuff is bubbling out of my brains and a directory of various podcasts and videos that I’ve made with my friends and is completely unnecessary.
