It’s Friday, I have a cold, it’s a given I’ll be doing feck all for the day. So here, have some funny reviews I didn’t write but say things better than I could.
This one is about the LOLCat phenomenon. I don’t care if I spelled LOLCat wrong. Whatever. People who know me know my feeling about cats, so I’ll spare you, but even without that I don’t think I’d get why bad spelling and pictures of cute cats are so popular. I also hate that it has become so ingrained into popular culture already that I am substituting have with has. Argh!
And I have a confession. I want to read the Twilight series. Do you know why? Because everyone is talking about it and I feel left out. Even though, from what I can gather, unless you are a simpering nitwit of a twelve year old (which may be doing a disservice to many twelve year olds out there, sorry) these books are going to make you want to bash your head in with their sheer ridiculousness and assault on the written word. I want to take part in the mocking. Because, hello, he’s a vampire that frickin SPARKLES!! Way to ruin a perfectly good legend there. But actually spending money that will go into Ms Meyer’s pockets and so aid her writing career and also convince her that this is her calling is a step I can’t take. And making the effort to join the library seems slightly worse, like I’m desperate or something. So, until someone sends me the entire series for free, or I stumble across them for a pound in a charity shop after someone has given them away in a fit of despair, I will read things like this instead and have a good chuckle.
It probably says something terrible about the state of the world we live in that such utterly naff things can go on to be so popular and make their creators shed loads of money. It also probably says a lot about me that I’m wondering if I can write a shoddy vampire related series and also make lots of money. My integrity means I won’t, but you know mine would be way better than this crap. Damn my integrity!
Yes, I do love the Pajiba reviews, and?
