9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street . Jackpot £60 Cheat: Princess Superstar (music round) (
(Brass Monkey Drummond Street quiz is off during the festival)
Here is the Skunk Anansie song that’s in tonight’s music round at the Joker:
Pop journalism is the laziest journalism of all and, at hte time of their success, the standard adjectival response to Skunk Anansie was that their singer was “scary“.
Now I tihnk this may have been because of a combination of factors. including the fact that she scowls a bit and the fact that she is bald.
I also have a suspicion that her being a black woman was also interpreted as being somehow scary.
After all, Sinead O’Connor was a baldy scowler and the press labelled her “fragile” or “an oddball”, never “scary”.
And why exactly was Melanie Brown pitched as “Scary Spice”?
Prince Harry was going on about unconscious racism the other day in Vogue magazine. I think he’s right.
However this does not mean we are pals.
Prince Harry also said “You are continually changing, and if you don’t think that every day is a learning process, then life is going to be very tricky for you. ” and while he might still be right about that he can piss off with his privilege, lecturing other people about having a tricky life.
In fact, all royals reading this can kindly get to fuck. You are BARRED from the quiz
There we go – I think I’ve covered everything.
Come to the quiz.
