There is Hope, Yet

Degree in air guitar

A student is studying for a degree in air guitar.

Amanda Griffiths is researching the craze for a PhD reports the Mirror.

The idea came about when she won an air guitar heat in Manchester in 2002 and was later asked to appear on Radio 4's Women's Hour.

Professor Sheila Whitely, Chair of Popular Music at Salford University, was also on the show and suggested she do a doctorate in air guitar to add to her Performing Arts degree.

She is due to travel to Finland later this month for the World Championships.

She said: "We were discussing why there were so few women involved, and the professor invited me to do research under her supervision."

Amanda will look at "codes of performance within the air guitar phenomenon."

"You Are A Star"

Will it never end? Say what you will, but Paris really does put herself on the line by continuing to display her sisterly devotion by forever wearing one of these:



Like so:

Malignant Morphings

Take 1:



Take 2:


Blind Item

WHICH simple blonde shocked staff at a French nightclub by demanding thousands of pounds worth of free booze? The ligging lady in question was given short shrift, so she threw a huge tantrum.


Paris Hilton. Frolicking in St Tropez, bien sur. Note subtle inclusion of 'simple'.



Note To Paris: Wearing anything designed by Nikki Hilton will not obfuscate the failure of 'Chick'. Your efforts at sisterly support are, however, admirable.

...And Britney Trumps Them All



There is nothing left to be said.


Being Barefoot: Take 1

Nothing says 'boho chic' like a pair of calice-ridden, dirt-covered feet.

The unsanitary trend starts with Sienna Miller.



Continues with Nicole Richie.



And ends, most horrifyingly, with scruffy, erstwhile porno stud Colin Farrell. (Thus reaching an unnatural conclusion)

Brad Pitt: Living On The Edge



On the day I was born, the nurses all gathered 'round
And they gazed in wide wonder, at the joy they had found
The head nurse spoke up, and she said leave this one alone
She could tell right away, that I was bad to the bone
Bad to the bone
Bad to the bone
B-B-B-B-Bad to the bone
B-B-B-B-Bad
B-B-B-B-Bad
Bad to the bone

I broke a thousand hearts, before I met you
I'll break a thousand more baby, before I am through
I wanna be yours pretty baby, yours and yours alone
I'm here to tell ya honey, that I'm bad to the bone
Bad to the bone
B-B-B-Bad
B-B-B-Bad
B-B-B-Bad
Bad to the bone

I make a rich woman beg, I'll make a good woman steal
I'll make an old woman blush, and make a young woman squeal
I wanna be yours pretty baby, yours and yours alone
I'm here to tell ya honey, that I'm bad to the bone
B-B-B-B-Bad
B-B-B-B-Bad
B-B-B-B-Bad
Bad to the bone


Mystic Tan: Take 1



Fake Bake* pregnancies are so hot.

The Lesser Half



Dear Ms Hilton,

I regret to inform you that you are not, in fact, 'hot'. No amount of airbrushing can change this.

Sexy poses will not obliterate the memory of Chick's failures. Your creations speak for themselves.

Love, A Fan.
