Happy New Year's Eve Readers. In every paper, on every TV channel and on every website there are reviews of the year being presented and you know what most of them are REALLY REALLY negative. 2007 wasn't that bad was it? So England failed in some sporting events... What's new? Sure there was some bad stuff happening and some shite on Television, but there is every year. I don't give a fuck if Britney shaved her head or Paris Hilton went to prison. All in all these things do very little to effect me.
Instead I want to celebrate what was good about 2007. Let us celebrate the heroes:
Judd Apatow (Writer-Director of Knocked Up and Producer of Superbad)
Michael Cera (Clark & Michael, Arrested Development, Superbad)
The Mighty Boosh
Ryan Jarman (The Cribs)
The Barenaked Ladies
Flight of the Conchords
The list could go on and on and in each case I could write an entry on each person but frankly I don't have the time. Instead I am going to select a single hero. One man who has stood above others and shone like some sort of shining star. Ladies and Gentleman, join me in saluting....
OK, Akon did some bad things in 2007.
He did sort of assault a fan on stage. (BOOM TOWN!)
And he did simulate sex with a 15 year old Minister's daughter on stage in a club.
Some might even suggest his music is a bit shit.
BUT.... He apologised. Yes, Akon said 'Sorry, blame it on me.'
Through the medium of song Akon did what so few celebrities have ever had the guts to do. He made a heartfelt apology. The song starts...
As life goes on I’m starting to learn more and more about responsibility I realize everything I do is affecting the people around me So I want to take this time out to apologize for things I have done And things that have not occurred yet And the things they don’t want to take responsibility for
Akon's trials and tribulations have taught him shit. He not only apologises for things he has done but also for things that havn't occurred yet. Yeah there are a few excuses...
I’m sorry for Club Zen getting shut down I hope they manage better next time around How was I to know she was underage In a 21 and older club they say
He is right though. Yes graphically simulating sex on stage was probably a bad idea but it is sort of the club's fault too. And the media, yeah media, TAKE SOME BLAME TOO YOU BUNCH OF BASTARDS! Furthermore, he apologises for things other people have done! Akon positions himself as a sort of Hip Hop Messiah. Next time you do something wrong, put the blame on Akon, he can take it. He sang for our sins and we should be thankful. (Though R. Kelly if you're reading this I don't think trying to put the blame on Akon in your court case will work)
In years to come Akon's sacrifice will be recognised. Just remember where you read about it first.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!

I love Kristin Kreuk. She is insanely hot. Correct me if I'm wrong but I have never met a guy who wouldn't. She has an allure to her, this sort of distinct (distinctly hot) look to her. Still her career has never really taken off past Smallville and looking at this article I don't think it is going to anytime soon.
Kristin Kreuk as Chun Li in a Street Fighter spin off movie. Apparently it is unrelated to the big steaming pile of dog turd that is the Jean Claude Van Damme / Kylie Minogue / why isn't anyone fighting / why doesn't American army sergeant Guile have a clearly eastern European accent / Blanka is just a skinny green guy with a haircut that makes him look like Chuckie from Rugrats Street Fighter Movie but that doesn't mean it will do anything but suck. IT IS STILL A VIDEO GAME MOVIE.
I think maybe recreating the true Street Fighter 2 experience in live action movie might be pretty shit anyway. I remember playing the game as a kid. I remember picking fat fat fatty sumo E.Honda and using my repetitive fast punching move to beat everyone. Who wants to watch that movie? And how do you explain the scene where E.Honda kicks the shit out of a parked car for absolutely no reason. Bonus points? Whatever.
Did anyone see The Extras finale? Really great stuff again and surprisingly uplifting considering all that went on (Not going to spoil it too much for anyone who hasn't seen it yet.) It has to be said though, Stephen Merchant, Barry and Dean Gaffeney dancing to a ring tone = Comedy Genius.

Many people have claimed modern Video Games inspire violence, social deviancy and bad body odor. Obviously most of these people are complete knobtards but that isn't going to stop them campaigning for the banning of these games. I think I have a solution...
Steve-Co presents... WII Doin Time
Yes, that's right kids! The first video game replicating exactly what it is like to be imprisoned in a modern day correctional facility. Choose your difficulty level from Petty Thief, Drug Trafficker or Terrorist with a penchant for Rape and Murder and embark on your stint in the big house. Using the power of the Wii you will have to (amongst other things)
-Win over your cell mate by wanking them off
-Knife potential rivals during recreation time in the prison yard
-Wank off fellow prisoners in the shower to get them on your team (Don't drop the soap!)
-Inject heroin your sweetheart smuggled in for you.
Will you become 'The Don' or will you end up in solitary confinement??
It'll be brilliant. There could be a celebrity endorsement. Like John Madden or Wayne Gretzky but, you know, someone who has done time. Maybe Kiefer Sutherland. He has street cred. I mean he's fucking Jack Bauer! I would play that game.
What sort of Kid is going to go want to turn to a life of crime after wanking off a bunch of virtual psychos for hours on end? I'll tell you, the sort of kid who is going to be fucked up whether they play video games or not. Plus all these potential murderers are going to end up with frail wrists so that's good too.

Merry Christmas to one and all!
I hope everyone has had an enjoyable and relaxing day so far. Here at Bingo Bob's Winter Wonderland it has pretty much been business as usual. Good food, gifts (check back later in the week for some commentary) and conversation ranging from the interesting to the borderline crazy. Straddling the line between the sublime and the ridiculous is my Grandfather talking about Turkeys.... Allow me to share ....
Did you know Turkeys can (AND WILL) be sea sick. Oh yes. Years and years ago my Grandfather ran a fish shop in the market. Every Christmas he would be given the job of travelling to France to pick up the Turkeys (Yes I know they aren't fish) for the shop. Well Grandpa would do just this and every year on the way back his boat would be filled with Turkeys throwing their guts up. It isn't much of a story really. He never befriended a Turkey and helped it to safety though I think that's the sort of idea Pixar would gobble up (GET IT?). Anyway, Turkeys get sea sick... FACT.
As well as that Turkey knowledge I bring you the gift of my personal heroes Justin Timberlake and The Lonely Island Boys singing a very special Emmy Award Winning Christmas song. I am very much a purveyor of Christmas musicality. I like some of the usual stuff burnt into our ear drums every year but I would also recommend hunting down Fall Out Boy's Christmas offering 'Yule Shoot Your Eyes Out' and the various covers of songs from The Nightmare Before Christmas performed by F.O.B, Panic et all. Also you just can't go wrong with Sufjan Stevens at this time of year. He has a ridiculous number of Christmas songs all about a million times more powerful than the X-Factor shite topping the chart today.
Peace AND Love

I don't talk to my brother a great deal when I'm at university. I think I should talk to him more. Today I found out that the girl who lives in the room next to him is a stripper. Yes, a stripper. The sort of girl who takes her clothes off in a club whilst men shove cash money into her g-string. The type of girl who Wyclef Jean wrote one damn fine song for. Just because she dances go-go it don't make her a ho no. That's not all. This stripper neighbour is only seventeen. Oh and her Father has written a play about her life which is now touring. Oh yes,
Did I mention that in the play her father has changed things around so that she dies in the end? Still, Chris says she is a nice girl and that if she has a particularly good night she buys the people on her corridor lunch the next day. A pretty sweet deal if you ask me. I wish one of my housemates was a stripper. Paul could maybe do it though I imagine he would be reluctant to remove any of his glittery scarves.

Little known fact, Seth Cohen was actually based on me. Black hair, tropical beach setting, love of comic books, witty dialogue. Also Seth has a massive Ben Folds Five poster and I love Ben Folds. Finally, I agree Summer is hot. Obviously they had to change some things like him being Jewish and all but you can clearly see the Steve. (PS - Sandy rules too but I didn't want to just make this an I love The Cohens post)

Having just googled Bi-Polar Bear I think I may have been too late with this one. Damn.

I've been working for about 10 weeks now and one thing has become quite clear. By and large work sucks. It just does. If I could I would just stay at home and people could send me money. (Please do if there are any eccentric millionaires reading this) However, money is a requirement for my many interests / smack addiction. Still, there is another option. Every morning on my way to work I walk past the park where all the hobos hang out and you know what they seem like they're having a great time. Sitting around in their wacky clothes drinking extra strength lager at 8.30am they are following their dreams. There's one particular guy, I call him 'upstanding gentleman hobo' who always seems to have a smile on his face. It's probably because he has a sweet jumper with 'university' on it. I actually think he may have been a super genius university lecturer who one day just thought to himself 'study is well and good but life really is just about sitting in the park... and getting pissed.' Either that or he's a sociologist studying hobos by becoming one. Anyway, if you've got the time go down to the esplanade and just watch the time pass with those crazy cats. They won't rape or mug you... probably.
Blogger have just uploaded a new site where you can view a slide show of random images being uploaded to blogs all over the world. It's mesmerizing.
It brings me great joy to know a picture of Jose with a thong around his head will be being viewed by millions of strangers around the world.
Also if anyone is heading down to the movie theatre any time soon go and see Superbad! The funniest film I've seen this year, maybe ever. I would use the old laugh a minute cliche but I think the laugh ratio may have been higher than that. It had Josh clapping. Also it has AD alumni Michael Cera and you know that has got to be a good thing.
I got to sleep at about 9 this morning. If you're walking around St Lawrence with a Tracker bar at 7am you know something has gone wrong. Oly was trying to buy Beer. NOT ON THE SABBATH!

How the fuck do you follow up Trapped In The Closet?? It seems by recording a song which is basically a conversation between you (R. Kelly) and your mate Usher. Utter comedy as the two realise they have been banging the same girl. I won't ruin the ending but it would put Seinfeld to shame! Also hilariously enough Usher refers to R.Kelly as Kells throughout the song. It's like he's talking to a pet.
Yes I realise my blog is now pretty much exclusively about R.Kelly but isn't that a good thing?

Hey kiddies, I just uploaded a shed load of photos to my Facebook account, ALL WITH CAPTIONS. I captioned my photos once and people seemed to enjoy it and now I can't stop. It's alot of pressure. Please comment along with me, it'll be like having a conversation but better because we won't actually have to look at each other. And if you're not my Facebook friend... Why not? Is it because you're a creepy weirdo? I don't know, you tell me. BE MY FRIEND.
I'm off to watch Studio 60 On The Sunset Strip. Happy commenting.

R. Kelly in shock new Chicken sex scandal! OK that might not be a shock but it isn't true. Yes that is me in the picture above. Rhodri's Birthday was on Saturday and I went dressed as your hero and mine R.Kelly. Yes it's controversial but I don't think it's racist. Would it be racist for a black person to white themselves up to go as (I don't know) Chris De Burgh for example? No I wouldn't think so. There was one lady who maybe thought so. Whilst I was at the front of the bar at the Mont Felard pub she stood to the side tutting. I don't know, maybe my costume was just really convincing and she was an outright racist. If so, shame on you lady, shame on you.
Rhodri's had a coach party. Coach parties are brilliant. This weekend I'm going on another one. I think maybe the world would be a better place if all nights out took place on coaches. The coaches would bus people around forcing interaction with other coach parties. You would see a great variety of people and places and if you hooked up you could just jump on another coach. Imagine it, you could buy a pass for the night and go all over the shop. Stay with your mates if you want or mix things up and go all creepy loner. Still I would worry about old ladies wondering onto the wrong bus wanting to get the 10A to St Marys or whatever... Or would I?
Oh and if anyone found the blog by googling the phrase 'R.Kelly Chicken Sex' please leave a comment and let us know why the fuck you were searching for that!

Proving that I am not some sort of crazy and that I actually very much have my fingers on the Hollywood pulse it turns out Ridley Scott is making a movie version of Monopoly (Page 19 of the current issue of Empire). I have oft joked about this in the past but it seems that maybe I truly am some sort of creative visionary genius. Look for the announcement of James Cameron's attachment to a Furby adaptation any day now. In other ridiculous news the 'My Super Sweet 16 Movie' is on MTV tomorrow night. Yes, a movie based on the 'not at all in touch with reality' TV show. You don't believe me? Go Here. Rowdy Roddy Piper is in it. You know it can't be good. Confusingly enough Hellogoodbye feature. I can definitely see myself watching this at some point. I did watch Cheaper By The Dozen 2.
Hollyoaks was pretty heavy today moving away from comedy anorexia to boring speeches about anorexia. Skins did it much better. Still, to balance all the heaviness possibly the greatest plot development in the history of the show took place... Leo's secret children!! How do they keep coming up with such fresh and exciting ideas?
In other news my brother has gone off to university. This leaves me an only child for the next three and a bit weeks. I think I already have slight only child syndrome. My Dad refused to buy me a horse and I am quite ratty about it.

From the director of Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind and Science of Sleep (You should see it if you havn't yet) and starring Jack Black and Mos Def. The trailer is better than many films I have seen. Knocked Up and The Bourne Ultimatum are also two films you should go and see. What are you waiting for? Go!

So I've noticed that there seems to be a bit of a craze for turning toy lines into live action movies. Consult previous posts for me gushing about how Transformers got it so very very right. At the other end of the spectrum there is Bratz being released next week. To be fair all I've seen of Bratz is the trailer. However, if this is anything but one of the worst movies of all time I'd be shocked. The aforementioned trailer paints it as a sort of pre pubescent Mean Girls, why would anyone want to see that? I say go for The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants. I havn't seen it but it is Jose Antonio Franco's Fourth favourite movie of all time.
So whats next??? Power Rangers already had a live action movie (Ivan Ooze!?!) but I'll save that memory for another time. I think Hollywood is missing a trick. Why hasn't Furby: The Movie been put into production. I'll save the writers some time. The occupants of the planet Furbis are dieing from Furpes disease. The Furbis High Council elect to send their mightiest warrior KooKaLahCha to find help from an uninfected Furby colony on Earth. His spacecraft is struck by a meteor and damaged. Our hero is forced to land in the garden of 12 year old Aaron. Using it's basically retarded communication skills KooKaLahCha must get Aaron to help him save his planet by finding the lost Furby city all the while fighting the effects of Ferpes. Along the way Aaron learns about friendship and love and what it means to truly be a hero. It's a light hearted action romp for all the family. Sean William Scott has already expressed an interest in voicing KooKaLahCha. Shia LaBouef could play Aaron even though he is clearly much older than 12. Jason Biggs is not being considered for any part. I see it as a Franchise - Sequels, A Cartoon, Christmas Specials (A Furby Christmas Carol) and all the assorted Tie-Ins. If Hollywood is lazy they could just release Gremlins again with a different poster.

Going Away / Birthday Party Bonanza + Pendulum + The Splash + Camping = Hangover! I think there might be a cosine function in there somewhere but you get the basic picture. After this deadly combo, I spent this glorious sunny day lieing on the couch watching Sky Movies Family, to be more specific I watched Cheaper By The Dozen 2. I couldn't handle anything taxing and this movie is pretty much the definition of not taxing. The characters were incredibly broad and their respective arcs were blindingly obvious from the start, still, in the state I was in I was nearly brought to tears on more than one occassion. Overall, the movie has Hillary Duff in it so you can probably just watch it without the sound on and furiously masturbate. The title bothered me slightly. They should have called it 'Cheaperer By The Dozen' or 'Cheaper By The Two Dozen' or 'Cheaper By The Thirteen' or 'Space Crusade'. They're all good titles. Also I think that whatever film Eugene Levy is in he should play a Dad if I see him in a film I presume he is a Dad. I wish he was my Dad.
One of yesterday's Birthdays was Liams. As is now the tradition we buy him pornography. I say 'we', Laura bought the magazine I stood behind her and said 'this is because you fail to satisfy me'. I thought Escort was a classier magazine than that. I'm sure Liam's enjoying it anyway. Maybe next year we will make him a porno.
You should definitely watch Entourage and listen to the new Yellowcard album. Probably not at the same time though.

So the furore over Mr Potter has sort of died down and I still don't care. I'm not sure why. I have recently been trying to figure this out. It seems like something I should be into. I read some articles, one suggested the book's popularity came from the fact that it's basically a detective novel dressed up in magical robes and made-up words. It had a good point but see I like detective novels and I don't like Harry Potter. In the end I think it's just the central principle that bothers me. For something so incredibly popular its not exactly a very original idea. There is a sort of familiarity to the concept and you know what I decided... Harry Potter is basically X-Men except they all have the same power. True some use the power better than others but its basically the same thing. Think about it... it's either that or a rewriting of Star Wars! I'm not saying I'm a hater (yo), I liked the films and I really can't describe the disdain I feel for those who have tried to ruin it for those who do enjoy it, I'm just saying it's a craze thats passed me by and I can't quite say why.
Still put Harry Potter against a giant motherfucking Transforming robot and no spells going to save him!
Transformers was without doubt one of the greatest films I have ever seen! I'm an old school Transformers fan, Optimus Prime is sitting here on my desk right now, I watched the classic animated movie before going and I have to say I had my reservations. (Bay made Pearl Harbour for fucks sake!) Still, I was blown away. I lost count of the times the hairs on the back of my neck stood up and they don't just stand up for any old thing. Of course the action was big and loud and exciting but it also had laughter (watch and learn Eddie Murphy) and heart, shiney robot heart. Also its a good thing robots cant get erection because they would be destroying all sorts of buildings with Megan Fox running about. There are of course numerous geeky moments to enjoy like Optimus Prime and Megatron quoting the original animated movie dialogue from their climactic battle. In conclusion go and see it. If you don't enjoy it I probably hate you.
Oh and here's hoping for Hot Rod and Unicron in the inevitable sequel! Oh and some Van Halen on the soundtrack. YOU'VE GOT THE TOUCH!!!

Yes ladies and gentlemen it is a Fortress of Steveitude World Exclusive!!!! The final page of the new Harry Potter before anyone else can see it! If you do not wish to be spoiled then leave now! NOW I tell thee! How did I get hold of it you ask? Well those rumours in the press of JK Rowling and Chris De Burgh dating might have a little bit more truth to them than Ms Rowling's restraining order suggests. So without further adieu... The final page of Harry Potter!!!!!!!!!
Harry woke up in a sweat. He put his glasses on and looked around his room. Everything seemed normal, he felt relieved.
Harry’s mother entered the room with a plate of his favourite breakfast treat, toast with no sort of topping arranged into the shape of a sun.
‘You better hurry up Harry or you’ll be late for school.’
‘What did you call me mister?’
‘Oh I’m sorry Mom. I had the strangest dream where I was a wizard and I was at a wizard school and there were witches and giants and I played this weird sport with broomsticks and you and Dad had been killed by this evil guy with no nose who actually turned out to be a time travelling version of me from the future and I was totally into Asian chicks.’
Mrs Potter chuckled.
‘Gosh Harry what did you eat before going to sleep last night?’
‘I did eat lots of Cheese.’
‘Well that’s probably it. Asian chicks! You have a powerful imagination my boy. But seriously you know that stories of wizards and witches are paganism and a filthy affront to God. If you were a boy wizard you would most certainly be going to hell!’
‘Yes I know that Mother. I guess the dreams were just teaching me that very message. I’m glad I’m just a humble servant of Christ and not some soldier of Satan.’
So Harry got up, ate his breakfast, brushed his teeth and put on his clothes ready for school. Harry was very lucky in that the school he went to taught creationism rather than any of that evolution nonsense. Before he left the door though he looked up at his painting of Jesus (who was definitely white) and said a prayer very quietly under his breath.
Thank you for the fact that I live in a world where your son died for my sins,
Thank you for the fact that I live in a world where the only real magic is the love of a Christian for a brother or sister in faith,
Thank you for writing the Bible and making all fictional books pointless and unnecessary,
And finally if you deem it necessary for me to have the same dream again can you make it so that I get to bang Hermione. It’s probably not realistic that she gets with the ginger.
Harry smiled at Jesus and Jesus smiled back.
Wow! What a shocker. I can tell you I certainly wasn't disappointed. I particularly liked the question marks at the end as they leave things open for a further book after Ms Rowling finishes her next novel 'Tom Clancy's Operation Leopard Storm 4000'. I can also exclusively reveal Mel Gibson is in talks to direct the movie adaptation. The only thing holding up the deal is his demand that Voldemoort is replaced as main villain with Jerry Seinfeld.
NOTE: All of the above may be fictional. I say may, it definitely is.

As with any movie that has even the smallest chance of making a profit my small time independent time travel has been upgraded to a full blown ultra massive budget trilogy. Sadly because of certain creative differences I will not be involved in the sequel. Young avant garde love child of John Travolta Tom Haywood is taking over the reigns. Here is how the IMDB describes the film...
'Jason Biggs is a frustrated teenage geek who is having no luck with the ladies, that is until his wacky scientist father Eugene Levy invents a time machine, sending the manic pair forwards in to the future! Jason see's the chance for a change in his fortunes, and begins to play the field, only to find out he's been mackin' on his future daughter! Incest abounds alongside some seriously funny gross-out comedy in this hilarious time travel teen-sex filmfest. Will Jason end up marrying his child? Will he ever get one over on the ever-present Biffler? And will he ever get back to his own time? Find out now, in Mack to the Future.'
I'm sure it will be great. Chris De Burgh is working on a techno remix of Lady In Red for the soundtrack.

What is with all the blasts from the past in the last two days? COME ON! I'm twenty, I shouldn't be getting nostalgic already. I really need to finish that time machine and then go back to those days and be all 'hey this wasn't so great, maybe I romanticized things.' Either that or have a wacky Back To The Future style adventure. Dude! You're totally mackin on your mom. Hmmm a time travel sex comedy. I will pitch it to Jason Biggs. If, as usual, he doesn't reply I will see what Chris De Burgh thinks. He is sitting on the chair next to me playing Wii tennis and chugging from a carton of Cranberry juice. Chris De Burgh is crazy.
I am now working at HSBC. I would tell you what my job is but it is top secret. I also don't understand what the abbreviations mean.

I just finished watching Episode 23 and what can I say? The best show on TV today, maybe all time. I won't ruin it for those who havn't seen it yet (Spoilers ahoy!) but if you don't like Heroes then there is obviously something wrong with you. There I said it. And if you like Heroes then you should damn well like comics. You want to know why...
5 REASONS WHY IF YOU LIKE HEROES YOU SHOULD READ COMICS
1. Heroes is a comic book in the form of a TV series. Content aside, it is structured like most modern comic books with single episodes building into small arcs building into one larger arc. The constant reveals and cliffhangers are what comics are all about!
2. The content. The writing staff owe more than a little to the comic book industry in terms of characters, powers and story. Claire (Teenage Cheerleader Wolverine), Parkman (Any number of Mutant Mind Readers), Jessica (The Hulk) and Peter Petrelli has more in common with a certain everyman web slinger movie star hero than just the alliteration. Nathan's speech after the election could have been written by Uncle Ben!
3. Crossover of Personnel. Many of the people involved in bringing Heroes to the screen are also involved in the comic book industry. Jeph Loeb (Co-executive Producer and Writer) is a major star for Marvel Comics. Tim Sale, provider of Isaac Mendez's art, was also chosen from the comic book talent pool. Loeb and Sale actually worked together on a number of the comics that were presented to Micah (sp?) by Candice when she was babysitting. Together they worked on one of my favourite Spider-Man stories of all time in Spider-Man: Blue.
4. You will get the comic book injokes. You will laugh at the fact the two F.B.I agents Alonso and Quesada are named after editors working at Marvel and the sword maker Claremont is named after possibly the greatest X-Men writer of all time. You will feel smart knowing Kirby Plaza is a tribute to one of the truly great comic artists of all time. You will enjoy the Stan Lee cameo all the more. You will chuckle when the phrase 'break the internet in half is used.' You will feel like a geek and it will be fine.
5. Me and you can hang out and comic book geek it up!
So are you inspired? You should be? Here's some material you should hunt down or borrow off me.
Watchmen - The granddaddy of super-hero comics. A deconstruction and celebration of heroic archetypes as well as being a damn good story. It also uses the disaster in New York to unify a divided world thing way before the human bomb and even the horrible real life events of 9 / 11.
Y: The Last Man - BKV's epic saga of the last man on Earth in a world ruled by women. It has the same mix of mystery, action and intrigue as Heroes and a similarily likeable leading man in a cast of interesting characters.
Spider-Man: Blue - I've mentioned Loeb and Sale already. This is a truly moving story of a hero haunted by loss. It also has implied off panel sex scenes.
Scott Pilgrim - Crazy cool indie manga from Brian Lee O'Malley telling the story of wannabee rock star Scott Pilgrim and his attempts to live in a crazy world of Street Fighter 2 like battles with his weird but cool girlfriend's vicious ex-boyfriends.
Blankets - Craig Thompson's raw biography of growing up in a no where town. As gripping as any super-hero fare.
Thats a start. I'll put you on the right track if you want any more!
