I note with regret the passing of the Manchester music impresario Tony Wilson, without whom, etc, etc, etc. If you haven't seen Michael Winterbottom's fantastic quasi-biopic of Wilson and the Manchester scene, 24 Hour Party People, you are missing a real cinematic and musical treat, not least of which is the brilliant Steve Coogan's priceless performance as Wilson. It's an energetic, inventive film with a clever narrative structure, a perverse disrespect for the fourth wall and a cheeky acknowledgment that the facts presented therein may be total fabrications. You should see it.

Also, only in England can a grown man with the name "Winterbottom" be taken seriously.


Also also, the United States is now 42nd in the world in terms of life expectancy. The whole country is becoming Mississippi. Perhaps "is becoming" is the wrong tense.
