“Roads” by Portishead

April 12, 2009

One of the Chum Master’s favorite tunes.  “Roads” premiered on Portishead’s 1994 debut album Dummy which is considered a seminal trip-hop album and also appeared at #419 of Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.  Haunting electronic music…hard to describe other than to say it’s wonderful.  Learn more about Portishead at their official website or on their Myspace page.

You’re a real f***wit, drunk judge tells lawyer
by ROSS MCGUINNESS – Wednesday, January 14, 2009

A drunk district judge was thrown out of a courtroom after she forcibly kissed a solicitor and swore at a prosecutor.

Esther Cunningham drank brandy before appearing as a solicitor to represent her cousin in a dangerous dog case.

She told an usher to ‘f*** off’ and called the CPS lawyer ‘a f***wit’, the Solicitors’ Disciplinary Tribunal heard.

Six months later, the 54-year-old was drunk when she taught students on a legal course, the tribunal heard.

Cunningham, of Grantham, Lincolnshire, accepted she had a drink problem and blamed it on personal problems.

She admitted bringing her profession into disrepute two years ago and was suspended for six months with £6,200 costs.

Teen changes name to Captain Fantastic Faster Than Superman Spiderman Batman Wolverine Hulk And The Flash Combined

November 3, 2008

Seriously.  Meet the former George Garratt, who legally changed his name last week to, brace yourself, “Captain Fantastic Faster Than Superman Spiderman Batman Wolverine Hulk And The Flash Combined.”  I’m not sure which part of that is his first name, so I’ll just refer to him as The Kid.  When asked why he changed his name, The Kid said he “wanted to be unique.”  Adopting a ridiculous name is easier and cheaper than getting a tattoo.
