Johnny Borrell from Razorlight was at a friend's engagement doo last night and was all kinds of unintentionally hilarious. He spent about an hour chatting girls up whilst casually wearing a guitar (but never actually playing it). Then, when he decided to take over on the piano after some frankly brilliant musician had been on it, his rather pedestrian follow up of a few chords here and there was very underwhelming. Seemed like a nice chap, though.

He's apparently a good bloke when you meet him, but has always come across as a bit of a wank-badger in interviews.

Yeah, that was the general impression I got. All around decent guy, amusing lack of self-awareness.

Just sent a text to my mother reading 'he was driving me mad so I had to rub away'. The shame.

The extreme power metal stereotype man on First Dates makes me giggle. Never thought I'd see Avantasia mentioned on Channel 4.

Eugh, that man is so revolting.

WMML: Me and Graeme stupidly accepting some "legal high" from a strange man in Camden, then both freaking out as we got ridiculously high reeeally quickly. It wore off after about an hour but and is making me laugh now but it was scary at the time!

I just don't understand what's going on with his hair. It's so... wrong.

Anyone for a game of scrabble?

First quote made me laugh so here we go.

Note: If you don’t like to read the c-word, you should probably stop reading.


How a bunch of c-words, got into the Oxford English dictionary

He's been in a couple of them, but episode four is the one I'm referring to. Him and his date go batshit over the fact that they both know Nightwish - you know, that really unknown band from Finland.

Please tell me my eyes are playing tricks on me and he isn't actually wearing an inverted cross on a first date.

Edit: Glad I watched this. I've never tried oysters before, but now I know that they taste like Southend.
