Selectadisk is shutting down.

BUGGER! There are hardly any independent record shops in Nottingham now.

Also, [url=http://www.metalhammer.co.uk/news/axl-rose-says-slash-is-‘a-cancer’]Axl Rose's recent comments about Slash[/url] seem to suggest that a GNR reunion might never happen.

^^^^
and I can't work out why that URL won't work. Either I'm being a spacktard or the forum software doesn't like the quotes.

What gets me is why the money isn't going to a cancer charity.

Is this a Jade Goody thing?

I've not got facebook, so I can't access the page.

Yeah. I think anyone dying is a horrible thing, but it's a page to advertise a "walk for jade" and it says you have to donate and buy balloons.. for her and family. Wouldn't it make more sense to give it to a cancer charity?

Especially seeing as Jade is probably pretty minted.

Because the ignorance of the general public shows well that a celebrity is more important to them than thousands of other people who are also suffering the same fate as this (what I consider) scum of the Earth. Yet they dont get the same treatment because theyve not been on Big Brother and acted like a dipshit and got famous for it. Many of these people run in marathons and climb mountains and conquered dreams through their terminal illness. And whats Jade Goody ever done in her life? F.ck all thats what.

That "walk for Jade" thing stupid.

In the case of all the Newspaper and TV interviews she's done and the wedding photos, Jade is allowing people to exploit her in exchange for money that goes to her sons future, which is in my book is fair enough, admirable even.

This "Walk for Jade", however, is expoiting OTHER PEOPLE for the benefit of her sons future and, given that she'll be getting a LOT of money for allowing the media to exploit her, it's a step too far (no pun intended). I think the money from this walk should go to cancer research charities and charities helping the children of cancer victims that AREN'T lucky enough to be famous for having made a fool of themselves on TV.

A friend of mine just sent me a text - which I assume was by accident, which was about me and has really hurt my feelings.
I text her back saying 'I'm guessing I was not meant to get that one' and she now keeps sending me messages trying to explain, but she is digging herself deeper and deeper...
So she has slagged me off, hurt my feelings and is now insulting my intelligence.

I'm really hurt :cry: .

It's horrible when things like happen, both from the perspective of the person who mistakenly sends the text and the person who receives it.

I sent out a text a few months ago saying one of my mates was "pissing me around" and it ended up going to that friend by mistake.. He'd changed a plan for going out at the last minute and I was quite angry about it, not least cos I had to inform all the people that the text was SUPPOSED to go to about the change of plan, which I saw as me having to piss THEM around on his behalf. That was pretty horrible to deal with and I'd only been slightly rude about him.

WPMOT: Secunia PSI was playing silly buggers. Hopefully having reinstalled the fucker will have sorted things out.

I know that feeling, Ive been unemployed for 2 years now and believe me ive sent CVs to EVERY job thats been advertised, and although I get the occasional RARE reply. Not even a single maybe or trial for a week.
I was in the Jobcentre today and the bloody woman goes to me "look at the jobpoint" in a derogatory manner, I was the youngest there so she singled me out. She didnt talk to anyone else in that way and obviously singled me out as I was the youngest looking and the easiest target for her to boss around.
I was due to sign on exactly at 9am so I didnt have time to piss around, I should have just said no really and sat down but I just half-assed looked anyway for a few seconds (I need the money and couldnt be bothered arguing.)

Jade is a fucking nobody, and all this media hype of the cancer thing being something tragic. Fuck her. People go through this every day. Jade is nothing unique, and really, I couldnt care less if she fucking dies. Shes done nothing in her life worth while to warrant me giving a shit.
