No Good Boyo Better Than Guardian - Official!


My neighbour's a student and she says she reads The Guardian instead of No Good Boyo because The Guardian has Comment, Pictures and Facts but No Good Boyo only has Comment and ill-informed ones too though.

Well I'm not having that. So from now on there's going to be a Ffact Ffrom Wales pretty much every time I can be bothered, which is about the same as when The Guardian comes out anyhow. So here's use ffirst Ffact:

Although the War's long over, Wales is still officially a New Romantic country. In fact, when Steven Spielberg was filming the Cracow scenes from Schindler's List in Pant Yr Odyn, Dolgellau, he wanted to play Visage's "Night Train" over the end credits. The deal was sweet, except Steve Strange inisted on having an acting part in the film. As a woman. Came to nothing, but you can hear the Visage cut on the DVD Special Edition.

Is The Guardian a blog then, Mr Boyo? It sounds like a piece of baboon shit to me.

Facts about movies is fine, but down in the Congo we expect singing from a Welsh blog. As one of your chaps said when he was touring the Mother Continent:

"Well they've got a very good bass section, mind. But no top tenors, that's for sure."

That sort of expertise creates expectations.

It's as much a blog as mine is, mun. It even has a Welsh - Dsquared - writing on it. Sort of back of the bogs wall for middle class grafitti. Our African envoy - probably Shakey - was right as only the truly indifferent can be. The continents ought to be allocated a register each, and then the whole world would be one huge male-voice choir. Africa - bass. Europe - tenor. Hamericas - baritone. Asia - high tenor. Australia - concert harp. The stars would then resound to seven billion tuxedoes and frilly shirts belting out "Sheeeee Wasssss Byoodifullll". That ought to see off any space invaders.
