People should start accepting that if you have individuality you have an opinion. The comments in here are interesting in the sense that they have been proving how if you have an opinion that differs from the majority you are insulted and get thumbs down, which kind of is the point he is making. He clearly sparkled a debate on this, and debate is a healthy cultural exercise, no matter if you agree or not with him. How sad these people that are all like “oh my god you cannot not like the Olympics or the Royals, who are you, some kind of freak?”, and they feel shocked and personally insulted. It is all quite laughable really. Funny how society is a brainwashing mechanism, and it is so effective that people do not even realise they are being brainwashed to not have opinions that differ from the majority, hey people want to fit right?!
You got 3 thumbs down for saying that, see Morrissey is right when he says “no oppositional voice is allowed”. Just on that account I will give you a thumb up lol
Agreed jro5. Simon is that supposed to be funny?? Really?
People are also struggling and starving in this country…just because you are in a good place….comments in here just reaffirm what he is talking about. I am not saying I do not think he is being a bit over the top but at the same time I can see what he means; as someone that has lived in different countries I agree with him that Patriotism here goes almost too far. The coverage of the Olympics by the BBC is a good example, it is all and exclusively about team GB, to the point it is more relevant if Britain gets a bronze medal than if another country gets a gold.
Irony cannot express what I feel about this utter nonsense video, which simultaneously manages to destroy my love for all things vintage and retro and my faith in the music industry….she is totally overrated, I am not saying she can’t sing, I am just saying there is a lot of more interesting and talented artists out there. And you know someone is totally sold-out mainstream when they have a rapper in the videos, which seems to be the norm if you want your video to feature on TV. Go and search for new music, videos on youtube, think for yourself, don’t just consume the playlists on MTV, there is better music out there. Some good music out there by Chromatics, Zola Jesus, PJ Harvey, Trust, Chelsea Wolf, Susanne Sundfor, Cinematic Orchestra, I could go on and on…find your music don’t just eat what you’re fed. You don’t have to like something just because everyone does, and no, it is not cool to wear baseball hats and have gold all over…
