The Bible Of Badness: LEVI(Ticus) Stubbs’ Tears – Billy Bragg

FT + I Hate Music8 comments • 3,704 views

Bible Of BadnessI have dealt with Levi Stubbs before and was contemplating skipping this particular book of the Bible. There was also the possibility of exploring the link between jeans and popular music in the 1980’s, a point where Music clearly was Pants. From Nick Kamen through Reet Petite it was clear that the only reason people were buying these records was because they quite liked the eye candy in the ads. SO DON’T BUY THE RECORDS THEN. BUY A VIDEO OF THE ADVERT. But in the end I realised as the third book of the Pentateuch it really is quite an important book (and full of the nuttiest bits of the Bible such as Israel should be in the Eurovision Song Contest). And I also realised that I had never quite finished a previous ongoing series of mine: WEEDY EIGHTIES WHITE PEOPLE SINGING ABOUT SOUL STARS.

Green Chart Let Down By Nether Regions (ITS A CHRISTMAS MIRACLE!)

FT + Proven By Science3 comments • 1,131 views

santagreen.jpgIts not a sexy chart to run down on Channel 4 at Christmas, but the Environment Agency’s list of the Top 100 Environmental Campaigners OF ALL TIME is nevertheless an interesting read. A few good worthies up top means you don’t even begrudge Prince Charles rocking up in the top ten, probably for the column inches. That said you wonder if desperation kicked in a bit further down the list as the following turn up:

47 St Francis of Assisi, patron saint of animals and ecology

53 Swampy, roads protester


The Business Of Film

The (one assumes from the language of its other articles a pretty right-leaning US website) knocks up a list of its ten best business based films. The criteria it uses is simple
1) A great movie
2) A relatively realistic picture of business
3) An attitude not openly hostile to capitalism as we know and love it.
