Can't keep on depriving the world of pictures of your tea, all the charity events you take part in every weekend, all the far flung corners of the world you visit, your Goddamn perfect 2.4 children, your selfies cos you're worth it ... that's why you got 550 friends and followers!...for ever you know. How do you manage at the moment? How do you know your actual existence is worthwhile???
No I do not fecking Facebook

What did James say to the Montana keeper of an Aviary containing a large bird, often thought as a symbol of the country that was depressed?

"Your EAGLE will destroy itself!"

It's interesting really, it took Facebook for the average Joe and Josephine to get into anything resembling a forum but in doing so killed forums.

Things move on though, after all this place was once considered 'new' compared to something like alt.music.manics

Last album was a let down for me but as far as the singles went, Distant Colours was probably my favourite. Think it’s got a bit more poignant recently too, never felt so lost and disillusioned politically and I thought I was always a pessimist.
