As the weeks seem to disappoint me more I thought I’d restore my faith in Britain’s Got Talent but looking back at some of what I consider the best of. Obviously there’s many different categories but it main comes down to dancing, singing and everything else such as magicians, dog acts, etc.
After rewatching some of this years dancers I looked back and thought if they measured up to the dancers of BGT’s past.
Not only does it give me a reason to blog but it also gives you a way of wasting your free time, time that you may have spent doing something more productive such as sleeping. Now I’ve been known to bust a move myself once or twice; especially when I’m in da club with da fine ass honeyz but nothing on the scale of these players. (Lol jks, I don’t go to clubs, I’m 27 for feck sake and anyone at that age that does go in clubs are just weird. Leave it for the youngsters.)
So what I’ll do is post a video of their audition and a video of either their semi final/final performance.
Note:: You may have to click on the link on a couple of them to watch it on YouTube as Fremantle are bastards.
After last weeks shakey episode where there wasn’t much on it that I particularly loved (apart from Luminites; they must be a favourite to win with betting shops) things didn’t get much better this week; usually with these shows they’ll start off the season with a strong episode and showcase some of the best that this year has to offer then show the rest and then end the auditions section of the show with something amazing.
This seems to be the theme for this year also as each consecutive week has been less impressive with this week reaching a low point. Hopefully with about three weeks left in the audition process things will begin to pick up from next week heading towards a big finish in week 7.
Obviously my favourite part of these shows are the semi finals which run all week long (that’s going to be tough to keep up with) with the final 10 acts competing on the Saturday.
Last year some stupid dog act won and the year before that some pathetic Scottish singer won, so lets hope this year someone decent actually wins.
A few years ago I attempted to quit smoking; the only reason I would even do such a thing is not because of health risks and don’t get me wrong, I f’n love smoking. So what if it makes your breath smell? That’s why I always carry around a pack of chewing gum so I’m always minty fresh. So what if it makes your clothes smell? I always carry a little bottle of aftershave so I always smell well fit. No the reason I decided to give up smoking was because I joked about it on a Facebook status once and was basically met with a barrage of “LOL WHATEVS TREVS! U NEVAR QUIT SMOKIN!” type of comments.
So I thought, “Screw you, I can quit smoking if I want.” And so that is what I did. I smoked my last cigarette that day; I took my time with it, enjoyed it, savoured it and then that was that. I stopped. I picked up some nicotine patches and tried them on for size, I remember them making me really tired so I fell asleep. I then woke up feeling extremely dizzy and the patch had given my arm a rash so threw the patch in the bin and decided to go cold turkey instead.
What followed on from that moment was probably the worst time of my life; I remember being in an extremely bad mood for a long time. Snapping at people uncontrollably for even the slightest of things and trust me when you work at a hotel that’s not a good thing. I remember threatening to knock out a guest that was being a right dick. Making female staff members cry because they hadn’t completed their shift properly. I was on all accounts a right knob head.
After disappearing for a month, I can finally announce the grand opening of La Plume Noire Photography's Online Store. It's been a long time coming. I've been talking about it since last year. Thus, it has finally happened, and I am happy and excited to grow my business venture one step further.
The ultimate question is, what will I be selling?
Hey white people. There is this director named Spike Lee. He’s that black guy who sits in the front row at Knicks games. He made a movie that came out in 2002 that can actually isn’t too anti-Caucasian. In it is a legendary speech by Edward Norton where he talks about everything he hates. I warn you this speech is not safe for work, unless you work for “Al-Ki-Ehh-Da.” Pay attention and you may get that.
Now that me and Mick Foley are the best of friends (seriously it must have been a big moment for him) I thought it was time to finally write up my review of Britain’s Got Talent from Saturday. Meeting someone you’ve been watching on television since you were a kid is still mind boggling even though I’ve had a day to think about it.
Excitement kept me awake until 1am, having to get up at 5am for work meant that I was pretty tired for much of the day but the buzz still managed to keep me in high spirits at work and naturally when I’m in a good mood, everyone else is in a good mood.
Anyway more on that later; Britain’s Got Talent still managed to produce some great acts this week, naturally as always it also managed to showcase some proper retards that live in this country. Still, wade through the shit and you’ll eventually come across a few diamonds.
Meant to write this yesterday but what was meant to be a couple of coke’s while watching a mates band play turned out to be a night of heavy drinking, followed by an all day pub crawl around Sheffield on Saturday and then a full day BBQ on Sunday so basically I spent all weekend away from home and drank nothing but alcohol for three solid days.
Safe to say work was torture today as it was like a thousand midgets were raping my very brain.
Anyway I’ve now watched Britain’s Got Talent, after last weeks shadow puppet show this week would be a hard week to follow and unfortunately I didn’t see as many good acts this week as I did last, possibly because they wanted to open strong and I can’t blame them for that but showing acts that didn’t actually know what they were going to do isn’t good television, just a waste of my time.
Thankfully though there were a few good gems to show off this week, people that actually deserve to be on television.
It’s not very often that stuff in the news gets to me, either because it’s happened so far away from my doorstep or I don’t care; I usually read something on the news and my initial reaction is, “the world is screwed”. Like the bombings in Boston for instance, that shit was beyond unbelievable. There’s nothing I can even say on that matter I just hope the best for those involved and the worst for those that caused it.
This particular news story actually saddened me deeply though because it’s something that could have happened to a lot of people I care about; it could have even happened to me.
The girl that you see in the corner of this post is named Catrin Pugh; we don’t know each other, we’ve never even met each other but we both worked at the same Ski Resort in France, Alpe D’Huez and we know some of the same people.
Her and the guys she’d been working a Ski Season with were involved in a nasty accident on the way home after the brakes failed on the bus that she was on. Continue reading
