In memoriam: @alanjmcgee briefly being an entertaining page on Twitter

I do love how that bone cancer patient lookin’ boy has just oh-so-casually got a bottle of Highland Spring dead centre of his profile there, as if he just needed to remind people that he was Scottish and wasn’t sure if some tiffin and a bag of heroin would show up in photos taken with a flash. Anyway, Alan McGee was a man from the 90s who was responsible for some bad music and is now an “industry figure” who exists mainly to cosign bullshit like The Holloways and occasionally turns up in The Guardian’s music section claiming that some random recently deceased British music figure was “the original punk rocker”. Big Al also maintained a Twitter account which, until this week, nobody had absolutely any reason to follow unless you were one of those weird fucks who will follow any “industry” “figure” regardless of if you like them or care for what they say (also, shitmydadsays isn’t funny. Just want to throw that out there). However, for one solitary week, he became entertaining.

Admittedly, his form of entertaining was almost certainly down to someone hacking his account and sending the same vaguely abusive message over and over again, but what are you gonna do? We kept meaning to do a brief report on this all week, but kept putting it off and off to watch all of Jersey Shore again (plus we torrented all of the TV Burps from 2008). And now, like Homer J when Mr T was at the shopping mall, have missed our opportunity. So here’s the best of @alanjmcgee: the tentertaining years that we can find still splattered around Google:
