‘independent’ press vs billionaires

monwashThe press is a strange beast (my blog) when its not attacking billionaires or being run by them which might explain why Elton John and his family sized olive oil container does not see a lot of press attention.

So i was reading a website with an article with amazon partner clicks for products thought specific, one book i noted as new was its last ever mention on  the site despite being noted as interesting.

Some weeks passed and i obtained the book from a library, still not a mention of the authors new book on the website.  So despite using a library i am either fast off the mark, or the press site was more interested in amazon commissions.

Michael Jackson bubbles monkey rapist

I have a hunch.that the amazon thing trumps reviews – mind you perhaps if the author changed sex and ethnicity something along the lines of what Michael Jackson became that might be worthy of some article by the site in question other than a commission for a click.

What would be your conclusion?

Journalists review a book about journalism and see none of their problems

I was reading an online book review about the state of journalism and everybody else was getting the blame for the ills of this ‘profession’ – governments, drugs syndicates,you the readers etc but no mention was made of he who must not be named (my blog) or the fact the journalists writing this where the same ones who smashed up the disk with Snowdens (my blog) list of spying programs in front of the government employees.

I found those an odd omission – after all its not there fault is it that they self hammered a hard disk to bits.

Oddly the book came to no conclusions as to how to fix things – funny that.

I will not tell you the books name since i am sure the newspaper and it’s journalists might deem a mention of it ‘stealing’ so all is well with the world is it not

bbc radio drama or quick lets turn it into a soap opera

Many of you have a strange perception of the bbc which either entails a love of some period costume drama, or two hours of a certain fictional detective being the pinacle in broadcasting while ignore the rest.

Being soap operas, hospital dramas which are unseen here in the monkey house.  With the bbc expertise these formats alwo invade radio dramas and one i was listening to (not a soap or set in a hospital) sounded so soap opera -ish that after ten minutes i stopped listening

In fact i knew who was going to live and who was going to die due to the bias from the dialogue of just four people.

mr darcy required

Another thing they also try to do is comedy-fy topics being the wrong sort of fiction (without bonnets and horses) because it appears that its not a period drama and is totally unnecessary.

Its kind of amazing that soap opera conversion shit can neuter an drama with a interesting story to it in less than 10 minutes.  Please note that i wrote this a long time before this (my blog)

BBC pretending to be netflix inconsistently

So since the bcc do not really do genre or look down upon* it i thought this is a slippery slope for the radio player.

Why ? It is interesting to note that digital audio broadcasts do not require a login and password.  Should not all televisions be required to have an email address to access the bbc as well ?

I think that the bbc’s remit is getting weaker and weaker for those of us in the uk.

If you live outside it and think all bbc stuff is brilliant or like sjw doctor who then good for you.  However even the oldest sell-able series** may hit a point where the liker’s of it may wither and make it need of a holiday or your provider stops buying it for lack interest .

Have you not forgotten about top gear (my blog)  that was once bbc

Copying netflix might a form of flattery but i see this as non innovation.  I bet all those user details will be leaked at some point.

*multi million pound classic book dramas are the thing at the bbc ** not all bbc content is ‘exportable’

Keijo! – when sjw’s are free advertising

a sjw in a swimsuit

Keijo is not an anime i would normally watch – in fact it is not even listed where it is officially streamed also the sjw’s of the press seem to be not discussing anime when once they did.  A coincidence ?

I found out about Keijo (twelve episodes in*) as apparently the sjw’s do not like it and the specialist sites have been mum on the issue so it leaked out second hand.and the sjws disliked it.

It is a sports anime with aspects of pokemon creatures (or ? animal kung-fuspirit) of the most ridiculous and damm funny more ‘fan service’ than sports anime but i did like it.   Its sound effects and visual gags are beyond sublime.  Quite how sjw’s get that wrong is something to ponder but since i find it hard to find anime i will support Keijo.

As to why the streaming site does not list it is a question for them.  As to the msm i too find it strange that the anime articles have dried up.

Overall you will not find a message in it but since i have no guidance from the press.as to good anime then i will make a choice myself

If the press and its sjw staff do not wish to write then surely they will become irrelevant.  I am sure those press barons will be happy with that outcome..

Our friends in the north

the northern beach

the northern beach

I was reading the other newspaper (which i don’t particularity respect) and things i had missed when a bbc (who the newspaper does not like either) radio drama called borderland was suggested as worth a hear. .

So one day i set my ears to receive left wing centrist bbc bias

Set in post brexit Britannia the immigrants – be they legal or illegal are leaving and while the playwright keeps it fresh with a dose of sports direct working conditions and the calais chaos (you tube) its grasp of devolution politics and peoples north of Watford , and wet ones in the west leaves much to be desired.

It is conveniently forgotten that labour brought in devolution of wales and scotland and neither are now strong labour voting areas.  As to northern Ireland well that’s been reunited with the south in this drama.

If you had not guessed it the scots and the welsh are also racists in this drama but since they did not vote red that must be true after all playwrights never lie,

Eventually our victim (female) gets to Ireland and lives happily ever after and this is where i get confused

spot the police

spot the police not the farmers

For four hundred the years protestants and catholics have had a deep mistrust of each other and as the bbc has reported in northern ireland that if you mix say muslim into that mix (bbc news) then i see a new threat to both not that i believe in the sky fairies

While it might be ‘drama’ why is it not wrong to paint locals as evil for pointing out the problems with an ever increasing population and less money spent on say libraries and health.

If the bbc wishes to paint all of ts white viewers as racist then good for it but by doing so they miss there point.  Not all of us live in Islington, and why does not immigration not mater to non women friendy ireland ?  (my blog)

If walking with a orange band is cause for the riot police to be out most nights  and segration of catholics from protestants is still common somehow to call the irish non problematic seems odd.

Anyhow what do i know. perhaps i should find a zoo in Islington

BBC ‘scotland’

bagpipeScotland is getting its own news channel at a cost of £30m a year, of which the rest of the UK will fund. – Craig Murray of which i link to on the right hand side has his witty take on this idea which sounds plausible (my blog).

If your into bagpipes (cpr for dead cats) and the cost of how much deep fried mars bars (my blog) cost then i suppose this is a great idea – cannie!.

It might need subtitles and pas78 stuff too

a week without bbc news

lets poison the gin

lets poison the gin

One day i got pissed off with bbc news (my blog) so i put the site into a site blocker and i have not missed it.

I later on  listened to bbc radio via a radio in the evening and found a bbc reporter talking to a bbc reporter on a news program.  Not quite sure where the news went.

Anyhow i guess there was no news.

Newspapers and ‘surprises’

barbie

four wheels good, two legs bad

Bananas was minding her business here in the zoo when Barbie the plastic doll (my blog) had a remodel from skinny diet anorexia problem (my blog) super model to variants of a fatter body type and something not resembling the average american voter or offspring.

I made a humorous comment somewhere about it and a couple of days later actually found somebody had already satisfied my request.

As a non barbie fan (dr zeus is a role model)  my knowledge of barbie is limited although i am very happy to throw poo at children with barbie dolls if they visit the zoo.

Then later that week in the newspaper one day there is a glossy magazine with this news in as a feature. Somehow i am sure this was paid for.  So ok a relaunch was not totally unexpected but with new images and access it seems magazine features can be bought rather than have much editorial merit.

No wonder the msm cannot get politics right (my blog) If only Barbie voted but i bet she voted the wrong way anyhow.

strictly ballroom?

poledancing

poledancing

One of the things the older lady apes here in the zoo ‘enjoy’ on television is strictly come dancing a bbc thing that rupert murdoch has yet to discover along the lines of this (my blog).

So if i am wondering about in the zoo in the evening its scheduled i might see them watching it with the crack team of zoo security staff. Although most of the celebrity they have no idea as to who they are along with myself.

Ballroom has a chequered past on television from weird amateurs and funny  (perhaps sarcastic) commentary to this polished version but with its  dragging people on the floor,lifts (not in buildings type) and gymnastics are supposed to be dance then i did wonder if strictly is ballroom dance or not.  Not that i honesty give a stuff

smile !

smile !

From the very brief extracts i see, and the thirty second performances which i am told about by the seniors and do not see it does look a parody of ‘ballroom’

Some apes like it, but i suppose most people watch it for the celebrity (my blog) over the thing.

Since i rarely delve into popular culture these days i hope you will score me highly for my wit and observation and not ring the rekcus  phone line.   Next week i will blog about something else less chav in case you where expecting that kind of thing here today.
