There have been many accusations thrown at Simon Cowell. From riding Cheryl Cole to being the anti-christ we all usually laugh these off with a wink and a nudge to the legendary music mogul. Even claims of fixing his shows like the X-Factor and Britain’s Got Talent (BGT) are usually dismissed as part of the business by anyone who knows the media world. However some new allegations have come to light that blow everyting that has come before out of the water. An anonymous Sony executive has posted an open letter on line describing the length to which Simon, and his company SYCO, will (allegedly) go to wring every last drop of blood from a fresh act.
The act in question is 12 year old Ronan Parke.
Here is that letter in full:
“For reasons which will become obvious, I can’t reveal my full identity. But let me just say that, I am an executive with Sony Music UK with many years experience in music mangement. My work involves close liasion with Simon Cowell’s SYCO company (specifically SYCO Music and SYCO TV) and, as a result, I have seen what goes on from the inside and this has left me increasingly uncomfortable about the integrity of Britain’s Got Talent and particularly the workings of SYCO.

On Saturday 28th May 2011 I was at the Pigstock Fest in Killinchy Co. Down. While checking out the best this festival had to offer I decided to head to the Main Stage to check out The Burnt Reynolds but there was a problem. Everyone seemed to have disappeared. The band put a call out for everyone to move forward. After a few minutes of little to no movement they declared that the song was for the two randomers sitting in the grass.
Where was everyone? After about ten minutes of wondering I came across the Engine Room where a huge crowd had gathered. I was intrigued so I stood and waited with the rest until a band appeared.
Now, before I comment further this is how these boys came out to the gathered fans:

Once again Festival season is upon us and the NI circuit is getting better. This weekend it was the turn of Killinchy, Co. Down which was hosting it’s relatively new Pigstock Festival. It is a Festival still in it’s infancy but to attend you would never know. A fantastic line up of the best in local music, Pigstock does a wonderful job giving the chance for unsigned acts to play to the people.
Like the now legendary Glasgowbury Festival, Pigstock is an amazing up and coming festival which is fast becoming a must attend. Headlined this year by ASIWYFA and LaFaro as well as showcasing a wealth of talent by some of the most hardworking and often ignored bands on the scene.
Now anyone interested in reading about Pigstock have no doubt read counless reviews about Mojo Fury, LaFaro and ASIWYFA mainly because all those pretentious Musos generally write about little else. Always looking to review the big names so they can look back from behind the McDonalds counter and think, ‘I wrote about them, once’.
Even BBC Radio Ulster’s Across The Line, who claim to bring us the ‘best new music from Northern Ireland’ have fallen into a similar trap. In fact the very people who use our money, as licence payers, to review new music on our behalf, and how do they pick which band to review?It seems if you are mates with those who work for ATL then you are guaranteed a review and that’s from their own mouth.

A few days ago I blogged about the upcoming Anchorman Porn Parody. Well it seems there are many more out there, all with trailers.
It seems nothing is sacred anymore as there are dirty parodies of The Flintstones, the Simpsons, Star Trek and many more.
So, without further ado, I give you a selection of trailers for these random Pornographic Piss Takes.

So, here we are at the end of all things. The world is going to end tomorrow…apparently. That is, according to Christian Radio Broadcaster Harold Camping who has got his wee calculator and his bible out, done some Stephen Hawing style maths and discovered that the day of the rapture is 21/05/2011.
I hand you over to www.lifeslittlemysteries.com to explain the unexplainable: Continue reading “Rapture This”
As if these guys don’t look enough like rejects from a porno flick it seems that some bright spark in the Jazz Film Industry has decided enough time has passed for a parody…a porn parody! Principal photography for Anchorman XXX has begun and one of the stars has posted some pics on twitter.
Brick will no doubt love more than lamp, Ron won’t just play with his Jazz Flute and I dread to think what Veronica Corningstone will have to do to make the newsdesk in this one. Let’s just hope Baxter doesn’t make an appearance.
Don’t worry folks, they’re nudity free but funny as hell… Continue reading “Anchorman Porn Parody in the Works”
