I think The Sun are spot on with this…
…in fact, I think they should go one step further, and restore this memorial to it’s rightful glory in the courtyard or foyer of their own building.
That’d show them!
(Quite surprised that this was on the front page, though. Apparently David Cameron left a big official looking briefcase on a train, and I’m sure there’s other stuff going on, as well.)

Laurie is, I’m sure, a hard working journo, and Molly Crabapple clearly has a lot of appeal for people, but I couldn’t help myself here.

Johann Hari Interviews Thom Yorke

tomdavenport:

“I’m a creep,” Thom York tells me as he sips tea fresh from the pot, staring vacantly though a misty window. “I’m a weirdo.” He confirms the statement later when he picks something from his ear and eats it, but first he shakes himself from the distraction.

"The awful thing about life is this: Everybody has their reasons."

La Règle du Jeu (1939) - Memorable quotes

I read this quote minutes before hearing about the possible internet blackout of Egypt. If what we’re hearing is right, it’s horrible, and at least the video of the protester getting shot is unambigous.

I haven’t seen this movie, but that quote puts into words something I genuinely, whole-heartedly believe, and something I seem to find myself repeating, one way or another, a lot these days.

Pretty soon my twitter timeline is going to explode with people who understand everything that is going on completely.

I know this because they have been exactly the same about every single other outrage that has happened, large or small, in the last couple of years. I love a lot of these people to bits, but I already know it is going to frustrate me.

False equivalences imminent. Prepare for painful confirmation bias. Expect return & subsequent re-disintegration of irony.

My hope, the way it always is, is that it could be worse.

No Sleep 'Til Brooklands: Liz Jones: murder, disappointing bars and buttons 

Of all the the journalists in Britain you would want to write about the Joanna Yeates murder, Liz Jones is probably nestling somewhere near the bottom of the list. You might think, after all, that Jones’ penchant for consumerist superficiality and ill-directed moaning doesn’t quite carry the gravitas required to really deal with such a case of genuine human tragedy and emotion. Well, you’d be right.

Great take-down of Liz Jones’ truly awful - in every sense - article about Joanna Yeates.

Although Jon Stewart is basically overreacting to a pretty straight-forward and minor bit of law that his show got hit by on a technicality - they could probably have used on-screen quotes, after all, and some of our satirical shows go a lot further without showing actual footage of Parliament - it was lovely seeing Spitting Image again, and I loved the re-enactment of the Royal Wedding.

The Daily Mash - Hari defends himself during pretend Parkinson interview

Hah. AHAHAHAH! only funnier thing I’ve read today was Mr Hari’s revised statement after taking advice apology earlier on.

"I’d have expected the cars to slow down here to show respect but they sped past, as if people were driving them. Were they driving home from work? Did the police even care? The lane is narrow. I can’t see how someone could have come out of the newsagent with a copy of the Daily Mail without being beeped at and told to get out the way, as I was just because I was standing in the middle of the road."
