Another comedian who is high in demand is James Corden. In fact, when we say he is high demand - we don't just mean for the after dinner circuits. The fact that Corden is regularly selected to host major awards ceremonies and star in TV series and films highlights everything you need to know about his reputation.

He's one of the UK's favourite personalities at the moment and following some of his film work, he's also starting to build a reputation abroad. Again, this means that he has more than enough material for any... (more)

The Print Dilemma

By Shane Joseph, published on Nov 4, 2013

I was on a TV interview recently, promoting my new book, and was asked whether print is dead? How could I answer this but with a resounding “NO!” me, a writer who churns out reams of print matter all the time? How dare the interviewer ask me this question when I was on the show promoting...well...print!

Coming out of the interview however, I got to thinking about this question more deeply. If he had asked me whether “print for money” was dead, I may have been inclined to say that “the patient was in the emergency room.” When you consider that writers like Fitzgerald, Hemingway and Salinger... (more)

The whining few are afforded too much influence

By Joseph Gavin, published on Jun 7, 2012

...is to attack the BBC. This is the most effective method of trolling. Just three thousand complaints over a four-day period from an organisation that reaches the entire population of the UK and beyond is enough to grab Top News status on a nationwide scale.Following the BBC unabashedly Royalist TV and radio output over the queen's jubilee weekend, full of false/forced patriotism and black and white pictures, I personally would have complained more about the one-sided nation of the coverage and the panicked expressions on the faces of the presenters when they felt a waft of Republicanism or ... (more)

By BusinessLife, published on Aug 4, 2011

The Yushin Maru actively tries to clip the Gojira’s stern. However, video from the Yushin Maru that is released later to the public is shown with comments that state it was the Gojira that tried to cut the ship off.

Pottsy, one of the small motor boat’s captains is now ready to deploy another prop fouler line to stop the Yushin Maru.

As they come across the front of the ship, it's the small boat that is clipped by the Yushin Maru.

Radio calls go out to the small vessel. Luckily this time both the crew and the motor are intact.

Will Tony Soprano Get Whacked Tonight?

By Ed Attanasio, published on Jun 10, 2007

With the final episode of The Sopranos airing tonight, viewers all over the world are speculating how the carnage, confusion and betrayal will come to an end. Arguably the most popular cable series ever, The Sopranos never completely jumped the shark, although it dig bog down for short periods of time during the third and fourth seasons, in my opinion. But, if this evening's episode is a good one, and packs any kind of wallop, all will be forgiven. If it isn't, bodies could start showing up -  most likely those belonging to HBO executives. Creator David Chase has continually frustrated many... (more)
