So, is the Eiffel Tower going to blow up then? There's been a threat and they've evacuated and that. Or, if you're reading this later, did it blow up? If it did, I point the finger at Blackpool. They're jealous, their tower isn't so popular anymore. If it did blow up that might not be in very good taste, but I hadn't heard that it had at the time of going to press, and I doubt that it will. So I am blameless.
The pope's latest tour is a disaster! Reports are coming in that ticket sales are poor and he's had to reduce the capcity at some venues. The thing is, he needs a better act if he's going to shift the units he was going for. People have got AIDS fatigue and child abuse fatigue, and just aren't shocked by that sort of thing anymore. He needs to dress more like Slipknot or Alice Cooper or something, maybe have human sacrifices on stage while playing a guitar solo. There's too many jerks around these days, and just being a jerk in white robes isn't enough of a twist.
Here's an idea! The Irish prime minister has denied that he was drunk or hung over on the radio. On a particular occasion. Maybe the pope should try that? Maybe a cardinal could try helping him offstage and he could struggle and punch him in the face or something. That would get on the news, I bet. He needs something like that. He should hire me for marketing advice. An album of duets, produced by Rick Rubin, doing songs like Wrote For Luck and Locomotion (the OMD song - not like "everybody's doing a brand new dance now" - that would be silly).
The Gang Of Four have a new album out, I read ina news full of stuff about fund-raising gimmicks and whatnot. But that's not the interesting thing. The interesting thing is that, in the article and the photo, there appears to be two of them. Should have picked yout name better back in the seventies, shouldn't you, Gang Of Two? The piece does briefly mention another two, right at the end in the band's current line-up consists of, but they're clearly secondary, not subject ot all the selling of ephemera and so on, not original members like the actual Gang Of Two.
