All right, there are two things at the moment that really rub me up the wrong way:
Firstly, that bloody Razorlight song, America. Is it just me or does that thing really make you feel like murder should be decriminalised? I detest it! I'm in a bar, Jack in hand, there it is. I'm in bed, alarm goes off, there it is. I'm watching Coronation Street (no comments, please), and for Christ sake, there it bloody is. Ambient music. Yeah, right!
There are too many indie-British-pseudo-rock outfits these days - Muse, The Fratellis, Kaiser Chiefs, The Kooks, The Killers... and the aforementioned sods to name but a few. When does it all end? When do we get the real music back instead of these five minute trends? When my brain makes a conscious decision to pack it all in and never listen to anything outside my pre-1994 CD collection?
And secondly... what is it with people who say 'niner' instead of 'nine'? Can I have your account number, please? Lima-Charlie-4-3-8-3-niner-0-6-7. Huh? I understand the origin, and sure, it's always guys of about ninerty-five years old who say it, but it really makes me want to throttle them. I don't think these people realise how close I am to pulling their plug.
Anyway - just a couple of pet hates for Saturday. Enjoy your weekend!
