You cheap lousy faggots

So yesterday, Radio 1 decided they were going to censor Fairytale of New York, specifically "you cheap lousy faggot" and "you're an old slut on junk". After a "public outcry", today they've changed their minds. Idiots. Even Radio 2 were like, "Er, no, we'll just be playing it normally..." I don't know when I started using this icon sarcastically instead of meaning it, but it's a real shame. It still annoys me when people start complaining about this kind of thing being "political correctness" now, because I'm not sure it is. But then, "political correctness" doesn't really mean anything in the first place.

I have dug out my one and only Christmas CD, the XFM "It's a Cool, Cool Christmas" album. It's eight years old now, but it's still fab. Eels! Belle and Sebastian! Flaming Lips! Low! Lauren Laverne! Oh, actually, I think I downloaded some punk Christmas stuff last year. Hmm.

On Friday I'm going to some concert or other at the Royal Concert Hall, which I think will be good [Edit: Singalong Christmas Carols = good! Host Craig Hill = bad!], and then to the late-night showing of Nightmare Before Christmas in 3D, at Cineworld. Anyone who fancies coming along to the latter should do so! It's at 23.20, and I doubt it'll be sold out...

I only have, um, three big boxes and a couple of bags that haven't been unpacked yet, although they have been rummaged through a few times!

I have found four other CDs of yours, but not the Christmas one. And I can just picture where it sat in my old flat, too, because it was near my computer for ages. Dammit.
