Have you heard Spiral's single from his CD?  It's so bad.  He sounds like his voice is hoarse.  I found a video clip of this song on YouTube

I have not heard it, but have heard it was awful. He's a hack!
I've got Princess Nikki finished up through episode five. Have not found episode six yet. I don't know if it was broadcast or not.
I think six episodes is about all I can stand though.

I still haven't watched Episode 3 yet.  It takes me a few days (at least) to recover from the last one.  Today looks like a good time to watch #3.  I think #6 is on Youtube, just search around for it.  I doubt this show will make it a second season.  It's one of those shows that looked good on paper, but not on TV.

And Sprial's song "Finglas" is on iTunes.  I searched for it, and laughed when I saw it was classified under 'Hip-hop'.

Spoirol is an idiot. I thought so when I first saw him. He thinks he's all that but he is NOT. Even Aishlene noticed that. Probably why she rejected him on live TV.

Who in their right mind would bother to give him a record contact?  My cat can rap better than he can speak.  Then again, we are American and that is foreign rap to us.  Maybe he's a real big hit in Dublin.

Yes, but a lot of his idols are Americans. Or so it would seem, so if he's trying to imitate them, he's doing a poor job. Either way, I've heard many British people complain he's no good also. So it's not just us. Maybe in Wales? LOL Did Glyn like him?

Maybe his only fan is Michael.  I don't remember much is Gyln and Spiral got along, but he may listen to Spiral.  We could infer from Spiral that his white rapper hero could be K-Fed.  Both are distasteful rappers.

I read somewhere that David Hasslehoff will be on Celebrity Big Brother in January.  Now that, I will watch!

Yea, I heard that also. I was going to wait for confirmation because it was only a rumor when I heard it.

I heard it from Wikipedia (which is about a reliable source as dirt). Just curious, where did you hear it from?

It's a UK reality forum. I have not been there in a while but they post on UK reality shows.

Okay, things are starting to settle down I think. American Idol is right around the corner and I need to prepare myself and start getting back into the news. So, figured I'd share a new BBUK article I discovered. Enjoy.

C4 cancels live Big Brother final

Channel 4's Big Brother final will no longer be shown live because contestants on this year's show broke rules on swearing before the watershed.
The move comes after broadcasting watchdog Ofcom upheld two complaints against Channel 4 over three separate incidents of bad language on the show.
Ofcom noted that 14% of the 6.4 million viewers on the night were children.
Channel 4 said it had undertaken "a serious review", and next year's final would be shown on a time delay.
However, the broadcaster defended its decision to broadcast this year's show live.
A separate complaint regarding Jayne Kitt was resolved
In a submission to Ofcom, it said the finalists did not pose a "significant risk", and that viewers expected to see their votes tallied in real time.
When contestants Nikki Grahame and Aisleyne Horgan-Wallace did break the rules, it continued, the production team missed the incidents because of the high level of noise from crowds attending the final.
Once it became clear what had happened, however, an apology was made.
Ofcom said that, while it recognised the efforts Channel 4 had made to comply with broadcasting regulations, it was "surprising" that the channel had decided not to use a delay.
"While we accept that certain housemates may not pose a significant risk," it said, "the eviction of housemates raises tension and the possibility of extreme reactions".
Meanwhile, three complaints about swearing on the live streaming of Big Brother on the digital channel E4 were resolved.
In the incident, one of the housemates - Jayne Kitt - was heard to use two four-letter swear words before the watershed.
Channel 4 said the "unprecedented situation" had occurred while editors changed shift, and blamed new, more sensitive microphones for the incident.
While the breach was investigated, it said, all of Kitt's conversations were masked with birdsong.
Following the investigation, a new technical system was installed and a team of dedicated "output monitors" was appointed.
Ofcom said the broadcaster had "regularly demonstrated that it is aware of its responsibilities" and, in light of the changes it introduced, the matter could be considered resolved.

Interesting.  Was this writen by BB7 winner Pete?  Thats what it says. 

Why don't they have a 30second delay like here in the US so they can bleep it out?  But it makes no difference to us in the USA.  We watch the recordings.

I sure hope I can watch the last half of the Celeb season.  My college campus blocks out torrents, but maybe I could get them from mIRC.  I don't know if they block that.

I'm not sure. I do wish they would show some of those shows on BBC-America. Of course, I've never been overly thrilled with some of the programs there, though they did show "Is there Live On Mars" and are beginning to show Doctor Who now, so maybe they are improving.

I have BBC-america here, but haven't had the time to watch it.  I heard about one of the Survivor-style shows and it looked fun to watch.  I forget the name.

If you remember it, let me know. BTW, did you ever see all Princess Nikki episodes? I only got five, not sure if the last one was even broadcast.

Sure enough, I'll tell you when I remember what show it is.

I tryed very much to watch all of Princess Nikki, but I just can't compell myself to watch the last four I had, After they were collecting dust on my computer (metaphorically speaking), I deleted them all and have totally forgot about the show.  Don't get me wrong, Nikki was entertianing, but it was only when Pete was there with her.  Without Pete, Nikki is nobody.

Oh no, don't worry. I totally understand. You can only take so much of Princess Nikki, thus Pete's break up with her.
Of course that was just the UK version of a showmance.

You know Hasselhoff will be out first, being one of the few people I"ll probably know.

I hope he isn't out first.  I shouldn't be saying this, but I like Hasslehoff.  He's quite entertiaing.  Ever seen the movie "Click"?  I didn't recognize him as the boss, but it's him!
