This is the Cultural Tipping Point

It is all over for Labour, even the gayers hate them now. Popbitch (Guido thinks of her as his eMother) is a cultural phenomenon, it is was originally a music press chatboard with a heavy gay slant and some of the wittiest wordplay in cyberspace. Now it is something more than that. Guido’s City mates luv it, media wannabees worship it, journos waste time on it, webmongs laugh at it, it influences our media culture. Self-loathing and satire is mixed in with tales of sex, drugs and rock ‘n roll pop-culture gossip.

The banner changes daily to reflect the cultural zeitgeist and today’s banner is above GUIDO TRUFAX! In a change from normal programming the Popbitcher’s took time out from analysing Garth Brooks’ sexuality and critiqued the waste of paper that is Demos’ latest publication. Read the bitchiness and weep.

Poppa-Down to the Kennington Tandoori

Guido had a skinful of Guinness last night and ended up in the Kennington Tandoori for a curry. Guido noticed the picture of Charlie Kennedy and asked about it, the waiter told me he was a regular as he lived down the road. The waiter went on to proudly boast that even the Deputy Prime Minister and his wife were customers. Guido asked could he see the picture.

Sadly the offers of money for it were to no avail and Guido’s respect for the owners of the Kennington Tandoori is much greater than his respect for the customers. So these pictures are from a camera phone taken through a window in the rain by a drunk. Click on them to enlarge.

Demos Downhearted

Propeller-Head Wonk Watch: Guido went along last night to Demos’ launch of Serving a Cause, Serving a Community by Douglas Alexander. Labour really are fumbling around trying to figure out how to do politics online and to re-engage with their activists. (Hint : try honesty and drop the control freakery.)

Douglas was speaking NewLabourSpeak most of the time so Guido read the pamphlet, which amusingly talks about Popbitch in awestruck terms. Why is it so popular? (Clue : it is funny and gossipy.) They touched on blogs briefly.

Noticed that all the furniture at Demos is Ikea. The leftie crowd was very demoralised. Guido almost felt sorry for them. Almost.
