Is there any good meat in Mianus?

September 7, 2010 1 comment

You wanna talk about serendipity? On the day OFWGKTA tweet that, ILB has its first piece of paid writing in over 24 months published. I know, right? It’s in the Norn Irish culture magazine AU, and it’s on the wonder of Jackass. You can read it in full beautiful colour here. And this would strike me as good a time as any to throw up Youtube clips of my favourite Jackass moments Read more…

Another entry in IchLugeBullets’ occasional series of reviews from websites that nobody ever read that deserve a wider audience. This one in particular sparked some of the funniest reactions to my work outside of Tori Amos’ fans and clapped out Brummie romos, this comment kills it:

 

Because it’s certainly not a fucking review. 

Regardless of what the album sounds like, that is one of the laziest, ill-informed pieces of shit I’ve read all year. 

How this gob-shite got a job I’ll never know, but he’s clearly got issues with having to ‘review’ stuff that might be considered remotely commercial. 

Plus, despite his best efforts, it’s not even funny. “Look: I used the words “fucking idiots” and chastised people with differing opinions in a review.” 

What a fucking prick. 

I hope the album is shit to at least make sure the reviewer isn’t totally fucking useless, but if the CD is so terrible, why did it get 3/10?

 

Fantastic work all round. Read more…

We made it to the end of the year. I’m as shocked as you are, especially as at least three times out of ten, when I go to log onto WordPress I have to put up with this walrus-lookin’ motherfucker staring back at me from the home page. I have no idea who he is, or what his blog contains, but he looks like the disgraced mayor from an 80s slapstick comedy. We don’t need him. Anyway, please enjoy the 20 most visited articles on ILB this year, along with a few reminisces from those who wrote them. Read more…

i-celebrate-myself

Far be it from me to blow my own horn too heavily, but occasionally I do come across something I wrote a year or so ago that reminds me that when it comes to music crit, I’m the only big money game in town. So here’s the first in an occasional series here at ILB where we just copy and paste a review I wrote elsewhere 12 months ago because, to be frank, you almost certainly didn’t bother reading the site it was on in the first place. Because you had they’d have enough money to (zing deleted on legal grounds).
