ILB spotters’ guide to inane platitude Twitter accounts

April 12, 2011 2 comments

Every now and then ILB will get commission from elsewhere to drop a guest post that turns out to be a “little too real” for them or “contains too many references to former ECW midcarders” or “has a joke about raping a minor feminist cultural commentator in it” so they just drop me a kill-fee that I end up spunking down Shakeaway (Turkish Delight and peanut butter 4life, bb). Anyway rather than ship it elsewhere, here’s an example of it for my ILB bredders. Read more…


The fake Brett Anderson Twitter account isn’t funny

October 14, 2010 3 comments

One of the defining characteristics of music journalists is that they’re always up for some massed collective delusions, of the stripe that make the “victims” of the Mad Gasser of Mattoon look like Shipwreck Kelly when it comes to groupthink (it’s esoteric 1930s ephemera reference week on ILB, btw). In the past, music was still “popular”, so 10 or 15 hacks would get together and decide, say, that Lethal Bizzle “said something about disenfranchised youth” or that The Distillers “had absolutely fucking anything to do with anything ever”. However, in 2010 the music industry is “in the shitter”, so they have to talk up other stuff instead. Read more…

This is from a fucking Official Twitter account, people. That means that an actual PR agent, on around 30k a year, sat down and wrote this.

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. Read more…

Phil Spector guilty of murder? morelike Phil Spector guilty of producing Starsailor, amirite?

Sad news about Phil Spector, but having to produce Starsailor will have an effect on anyone.

Style of other tweets: “Would love to go to Abu Dhabi for a holiday. Suspect that Derby might be more within my price range” and “Not wishing to put a damper on Jesus’ achievement in rising from the dead, but it WAS only for three days” suggest that Impy could well have had a fantastic career if he’d have been doing the working men’s clubs comedy circuit back in the early 70s, perhaps as a support act for Mick Miller.

Results 1 – 23 of 23 for “twitter more like twatter”. (0.10 seconds)

After being a long time Twitter hold out, we finally went for it because, and I feel this is as good a reason as any, we made a really funny joke about Nick Griffin to a friend in an IM conversation that we wanted to share with the world, but couldn’t justify turning into a blog post or starting a message board thread for. And, really, we get enough people here googling for “I Vow To Thee My Country” on YouTube. kids, subscribe and enjoy.
