“And it was like for a moment, O my brothers, some great bird had flown into the milkbar. And I felt all the malenky little hairs on my plott standing endwise. And the shivers crawling up like slow, malenky lizards and then down again. Because I knew what she sang. It was a bit from the glorious 9th, by Ludwig van.”
A Clockwork Orange (1971)
Yeah, quite good.
Omagh, 1998. The bomb in the red car exploded moments later. I’ve never seen this picture before but now I can’t stop looking at it. The Spanish man and child survived.
Goddamn this makes me laugh hard.
Greatest motherfucking band ever.

I’m going to go with a controversial opinion on this one and say that I approve of Matt Cardle’s X Factor cover of “Many of Horror”. But don’t worry, it’s not for the quality of the song.
I’m repulsed by the cover version. He sounds like a girl, there’s no emotion, he’s really weak at the beginning of the song and the music just feels somehow deflated. It’s an insult to the original and an affront to Biffy fans. But there’s an upside which, I feel, makes it all worthwhile and bears keeping in mind:
A million young teens have just been introduced to Biffy Clyro.
That’s a million kids who have never heard of Biffy Clyro, don’t know anything about them and who may not even like rock music. They’ve just been listening to a song called Many of Horror. You can guarantee most of them will look for the original version, you can guarantee a lot of those will also have a listen to other Biffy songs, you can guarantee some of those will discover they actually like what they hear. And there it is, thousands of kids are now listening to decent music thanks to the X Factor. Some of them will even fall in love with Blackened Sky. JustBoy anyone?
So while it doesn’t sit well on my stomach to say this, I think the X Factor has done a great thing by having the winner’s single be a Biffy Clyro cover. Even if it is shite.
