Sickening morning news

What a sick-making morning it was this morning, as the Auld Git struggled to keep his Rice Crispies down after the news came on.

First, there was the absolutely stunning news that Amy Wienhouse had managed to stay upright long enough to slur through some song and not fall over after being awarded (well, the noise she makes doesn’t merit the use of the word ‘winning’) a ridiculous number of prizes for knowing all the right people. That should keep the family in booze an illicit substances for a long time, and send all the wrong signals to the young that that this how you succeed.

Then it got worse as the BAFTAs were thrown at us. Does anyone realise that all this is the rich and richer all patting one another on the back and celebrating the millions that they extort from their sponsors, and working out how divvy up the next years millions amongst themselves. You can picture the scene as they work out who will go where and do what for whom, and what they will demand as their cut from the production.

The biggest laugh you can get from this is to work who is doing the best performance of looking surprised when they are announced as a winner, as if the whole lot is arranged in advance.

The worst of all was that this is only the British run up to having the same thing done all over again, when the Americans have their award ceremony next month.

Pity the writer’s strike is looking like coming to and end – if they stayed out a bit longer, like a few years, then maybe all the ‘stars’ would be forgotten, and instead of being able to demand tens of millions to pull in the worship society of fools, sorry, worshippers happy to be fleeced for all they are worth, they’d be slapped down to their real worth, and be lucky if they were paid a few hundred bucks for their overblown appearances of a few minutes on screen.

Ah well, better go and clean up the mess and make some more brekkies.
