UK NEWS FOOD TO DIE FOR SAY what you want about mass-murdering, life-in-prison House of Horrors bitch Rose West, the woman cooks a mean shepherd’s pie.

behind bars,” said a jail source. “Now she’s writing g a cookbook for the other female lags. It’s very popular inside.” In a recipe for victoria sponge cake, the wacky s wife of fellow serial killer Fred West – who buried women under the cellar of their home at Cromwell Street in Gloucester – cautions: “If mixture looks as though it is curdling DON’T WORRY! It’ll be OK.” Thanks Rose! You’re a lifesaver! Oh the irony…

And now the corpsehacking mentalist is finally putting her knife skills to good use after starting work on a new cookbook for her fellow inmates at Low Newton women’s prison in Brasside, Durham. That’s our mum’s Christmas present sorted. Now all we need is Peter “Yorkshire Ripper” Sutcliffe e to release an “Improve Your Swing” golf DVD and d both parents are done. “Rose loves playing the mother hen role

Someone should tell her you don’t use actual shepherds in a shepherd’s pie though. Just to be sure.

STIFF COMPETITION ERECTION problems? Can’t get it up? Told all your mates you had a wild night of passionate sex when in reality you spent the night crying because no amount of wanking could bring you to attention and she went home in disgust after half an hour. Well guess what? Chances are you’re from Bristol! A new report says blokes from Bristol are Britain’s biggest Viagra users, which arguably means that swigging on a jug of cider while chewing a piece of straw and saying “ooo-arr” makes you impotent. Men in Solihull, London’s Lea Valley,

THEY’RE hot… they’re relentless… they don’t get dubious headaches on a Sunday morning… and they want YOUR memory stick in their USB… it’s the invason of the sex robots people! Apparently, the world’s first fully functioning sex robots could be heading to the UK after becoming a hit in America. Unfortunately, they don’t look like the fem-bots from Austin Powers – more like C-3PO in a wig. And in a bizarre twist that only confirms our suspicions that British women have no taste, the American inventor of the sex machines said: “A couple of weeks ago I was in a discussion with a lady to build one that looked like Graham Norton. She sounded serious.” Dear God.

Bursledon and Chesterfield are also having a hard time — or not — in the bedroom, according to the figures from Tesco. “There’s been a strong overall demand across the UK for this erectile dysfunction remedy since e it went on sale in September but the highest demand by far is in Bristol,” said a spokesperson for the supermarket. Well, every little helps. By contrast, men in Scotland and Northern Ireland bought the least amount of Viagra. So the moral of the story ladies, is if you want a sure-fire good time, make sure you go for a bit of Celtic cock.

CAMERON CAMPS IT UP IN THE clearest indication yet that he’s a twat, David Cameron said he camped out on The Mall the night before Charles and Diana’s wedding. The Royal-loving buffoon said: “I remember when I was young, when [Prince] William’s mother got married, I slept on The Mall that night and joined the celebrations.” Is BBM the only one already bored to hell by all this engagement bollocks?

DOING THE ROBOT

LIDL: THE GERMAN GRINCH SOD the turkey or goose, what better time to eat reindeer meat than Christmas? German supermarket Lidl, which has 500 outlets UK wide, has decided to market frozen reindeer steaks at £5.99 for a 350g pack under its premium ‘Deluxe’ brand in the run up to Christmas. Spokesman Justin Kerswell said: “Lidl is destroying the magic of Christmas by selling dead reindeer.” We’re not sure about how they’d market live deer, but what we’re more perplexed about is just what is deluxe about Lidl? It smells weird and is more often than not found in close proximity to the 99p Store.

UK NEWS A GAY OLD TIME A HOMOPHOBIC God botherer lost her job after she was asked to abstain from voting in same sex adoption cases, and is now claiming ‘religious discrimination’ Dr Sheila Matthews, 50, from Kettering is also being supported by the Christian Legal Centre, as they believe children do better in heterosexual homes. We’re wondering if she has some sort of inside knowledge as to what it is like coming from a homosexual household, do they turn out retarded and ignorant like her? If so we say reinstate her, the world doesn’t need any more of that shiz.

FAT OF THE LAND IMAGINE Jabba the Hutt watching Jeremy Kyle and only leaving the house to pick up his benefits.

SILLY BOGGER

Congratulations you’ve just imagined pretty much every household in Britain, with new statistics revealing that the recession has turned everyone back home into junk-food loving lard monkeys.

APPARENTLY it’s 1951 in Bognor Regis. Ok we knew that already, but it spans further than the décor. Gareth Hemingway, 29, has been jailed for 15 months following a racial hatred campaign he started on YouTube.

Apparently one of the few industries still booming back home is the fast food market, with cash-strapped fatties preferring to stay in with a Dominos’ pizza and watch The Simpsons than go out to a restaurant.

The footage was found by a journalist whilst researching the area and the videos apparently included clips called “racial holy way” and “red, white and blue through and through”. Police also reportedly found Nazi and racist memorabilia at the nutjob’s home. Seeing as he lives near Longford Road, we think he’ll be needing to move when he gets out of jail. Dickhead.

Dominos also claim part of their popularity has come from sponsoring Britain’s Got Talent. They’re expected to sponsor Simon Cowell’s next project, Britain’s Got Massive Coronary Problems, next year.

UK NEWS TELLING PORKIES UNLIKE our Muslim and d Jewish brothers, we here at BBM love pigs.

QUEEN KATE IT’S happened, the day that British royal family fans (mostly situated on the outskirts of society) have been waiting for. Prince William finally proposed to his bit of fluff, Kate Middleton whilst on a holiday in Kenya.

Miss Piggy, Babe, Wilburr from Charlotte’s web, Jade e Goody… the list of porkers s who have entertained us through the years rolls on..

Giving a rather informal TV interview, Wills stated that Kate would be in a lot of trouble if she ever loses the sapphire engagement ring weighing down her left hand, as it was his mother’s.

Not to mention the many pigs we’ve picked up at kicking out time at Scruffy y Murphys when all the good-looking girls have gone home. It’s a valuable service and we salute you.

And of course his granny threw in her tuppence saying, in typical old boot fashion, “It has taken them a very long time.” So, basically this comes as tragic news to any posh totty who were hoping to one day wed the heir to the throne, but never mind, there’s always the spare – he’s more fun anyway.

Well now the loony-left, Brussel Eurocrat fat cats have gone too far! Yes BBM is going all Daily Heil following the news that the Early Learning Centre has axed pigs from their toy farm sets in case it offends Muslim and Jewish parents. “Previously the pig was part of the Goosefeather Farm,” said an ELC spokesperson. “However due to customer feedback and religious reasons this is no longer part of the farm.”

GEM OF AN IDEA TWO blokes who successfully robbed a jewellers in South Wales made a somewhat rookie error when shifting the stolen gems – they tried to sell them to the bloke they’d robbed. The thieves successfully raided Derek Davies’ jewellers, and made off with £7,000 worth of gems in Tonypandy, South Wales. Five days later, they made the idiot decision to sell them to a sister branch four miles away – and a member of staff recognised a ring.

WORLD NEWS RATTING OUT THE NUCLEAR ANIMALS THE BBM team were upset to see our local KFC close due to some pesky health regulations last week. The way we see it, if America can’t keep their nuclear plants clean, why should these delicious chicken stores shut down?! After catching a radioactive rabbit in Washington, plant workers (pictured) are on the hunt for a radioactive mouse.

Radioactive mouse droppings have been found in the same area where radioactive rabbit droppings were found earlier this month. Either the mouse shared some radioactive waste with the rabbits or they’ve been feasting on rabbit shit. Sounds like BBM’s ill-fated attempt at I’m a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here.

BAAAAAD ROMANCE SOMETIMES those poor Kiwi’s need some love and attention. It doesn’t matter if their companion is male, female, alive, dead, as long as somebody is sharing a bed with them.

but he did read jokes to cheer himself up, hopefully using BBM’s world famous jokes page - on page 66!

Take Gordon Hieatt for example. After killing his Thai sex-worker girlfriend (is that technically still a girlfriend?), he slept next to her body (pictured). Charming.

His landlord contacted police because he noticed a foul smell emanating from the apartment when he stopped by to collect overdue rent. Don’t worry, the rent wasn’t an issue in the end - Gordon was only paying for one but didn’t inform the landlord he had killed his flatmate. No big deal.

He denied touching her in a sexual way

WHAT A TURKEY ANOTHER animal sex scandal? We know, but at least this one was dead. Deon Williams was caught on security camera stuffing a turkey (pun intended) down his pants at a local Brooklyn supermarket. However, he denies the claim. The best part? His statement to the New York Post, where ere he says that “I didn’t do it. OK, I stole a cold-cut sandwich wich because I was hungry, but I put everything [else] back.”” That turkey would’ve been delicious for the next poultry-loving customer. The butcher chased him out of the store and demanded ed that Williams return the bird. He put the poultry on the pavement avement but then allegedly punched the butcher in the jaw. BBM M hopes he enjoys eating Thanksgiving Turkey in the local jail on Thursday.

IN RUSSIA, TOILET USES YOU! SICK of being number two, Russia wants to regain its status as the country with the best toilets in the world. Yes, this is the same superpower who wanted to rise to the top of Space, Nuclear Weapons - you name it - only a couple of decades ago. The state of public toilets is generally seen as a disgrace in Moscow, with citizens having to endure stinking and ageing facilities even though they usually have to pay for the privilege of using them - sounds like the public transport system in Sydney. “Now we do not even have official regulations for the quality of public lavatories except a document from 1972 that talks about cesspits,” says the head of the Russian association of lavatory manufacturers. That’s a shit job if I’ve ever heard one.

IN a story that just BBM finds unbelievable, it just so happens that the Chinese building that burned as fast as a rice-paper tower soaked in petrol could possibly have involved used illegal contracts, unsafe materials and unqualified workers in its construction. Authorities say they have identified only 26 of the 53 bodies taken from the building. More than 30 people reportedly remain missing from the blaze, which sounds like a giant conspiracy to us!


GOSSIP

NOT SO GLEEFUL JUST when Lindsay Lohan seems to be back on track (on the Amy Winehouse scale at least - see page 22), her mother is gaining unnecessary press by taking aim at the producers of Glee.

KEIRA’S GONE BATTY BRITISH babes Rachel Weisz and Keira Knightley have been put on notice - they are among six actresses being lined-up for major roles in the third Batman movie. Ignoring the fact that the title, The Dark Knight Rises, is absolute balls, we’d be pretty pumped to see either lady enter Gotham City, especially if it means the return of Catwoman. Good luck topping Michelle Pfeiffer though, the subject of many of BBM’s cat-based dreams. We’ll be especially chuffed if it means that

chronic mumbler Blake Lively stays away from the film - she’s already ruined Gossip Girl, you couldn’t understand her in The Town and she threatens to destroy the upcoming Green Lantern flick. Can you tell we’re not a fan? Of course, Keira’s schedule is free because she opted out of the fourth Pirates of the Caribbean film, her character to be replaced (downgraded?) by Penélope Cruz. Let’s just say The Dark Knight won’t be the only thing rising if Keira wears the lycra.

MARRIAGE ISN’T FOR-EVA

Brent’s father has milked this for all its worth, telling TMZ that “I feel horrible for my son. I’m in shock. I knew [Erin] was moving out of the house soon and she was the one that filed for divorce. This is the straw that broke the camel’s back.” Parker was asked about the split last week, when he spoke briefly with a clutch of reporters before his team’s NBA contest against Chicago.

But hey, Dina Lohan needs to make a quick buck now that her cash cow daughter isn’t producing the money. “Our lawyers are sending a letter to Glee on the grounds that the show allegedly defamed the actress who, by all accounts, is working hard on her recovery,” she told a Gossip Website, most likely in return for a hot meal.

IN more Batman casting news, a fan site (which is a reliable source if we’ve ever seen one) has revealed that Inception’s Tom Hardy will play Dr. Hugo Strange in the Dark Knight Rises.

BLIMEY! Is 2010 the year of crazy break-ups or what? Courteney and David, Lady Gaga and her sanity, and now Eva Longoria and basketball-star Tony Parker. Apparently, Parker has been playing on different courts - sending hundreds of steamy text messages to Erin Barry, who is currently divorcing Parker’s former teammate Brent.

In this week’s episode, Gwyneth Paltrow (who can teach us anytime) attempts to teach Spanish by discussing Lohan’s rehab stints in the language. It can’t be defamation to ask “Lindsay Lohan is totally crazy, right?” - because she is.

“We got a joint statement and everything else is our private life.” When pushed on the subject of Erin Barry he said: “That’s my private life.” We’re sorry, Tony, but have you seen who you’ve been married to recently? She’s the hottest woman in the world. She’s not some gold-digging WAG, (hello, Khloe Kardashian) earning $250,000 an episode. What in the hell is your problem?! Eva? Call us.

In the comics, Dr. Strange is a police psychologist obsessed with Batman. Appearing in 1940, he actually preceeds the Joker and Catwoman by a couple of months. Hardy is riding high on his post-Inception dream run (pun intended), scoring the lead role in Mad Max 4: Fury Road and as a Brit, BBM can’t be happier. Just don’t screw up the Batman film.

ANNE’S NAKED BOOB THERE’S a reason why BBM would love to work on a movie set. The free food, the atmosphere, the naked film stars... You heard us right. Anne Hathaway was left red-faced after getting “unnecessarily naked” on the set of her new film Love And Other Drugs. She said: “On the day I shot the scene where I 18

have to remove my trench coat and be nude e underneath I thought we were filming, but it turned out we were just rehearsing and I got unnecessarily naked in front of a lot of people. “But hey, I just did my job.” Chalk this up as another reason why BBM would like to be Jake Gyllenhaal.

BAND TELLS MCFADDEN:

GET A NEW WEST-LIFE! WESTLIFE have stated that they won’t do a Take That and invite old member Brian McFadden back to the group. Then again, Brian is no Robbie Williams...

You’d think that she’d be the most likely to survive on insect brains in the jungle, but BBM predicts this is mother nature sending a stern warning - ‘You are not a celebrity.’

The band took part in a triple boy band bonanza on Sunday’s X Factor which featured performances from previous contestants JLS and the newly reformed Take That. Westlife performed their new single Safe on the results show, which also showcased Take That perform their new track The Flood with Robbie. Shane Filan from the Irish quartet stated that after “seeing Take That with Robbie again has not encouraged us to get Brian back. If he did come back, we’d be thinking, ‘Is he happy with what we are doing now?’” Mark Feehily also added, “It ups the ante for us. When there is no competition, you can

IN this week’s ironic Gossip, nutritionist Gillian McKeith fainted twice in horror only a couple of days into her stint on I’m A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here.

Defending her efforts, she said: ‘I’ve come here, I’ve got in a helicopter and I had a friend who died in a helicopter crash... I slept out in the jungle and I’m terrified of insects and today, I had to cross a bridge and I’m afraid of heights. get a bit lazy so it’s good to have another band back.” Westlife release Safe in a spectacular battle of the boys, with JLS and Take That all promoting and releasing their singles this week.

GOSSIP BILLY’S THAI HANGOVER BBM just loves America’s inability to take anything seriously, after all life is one big movie isn’t it? Billy ‘Big Balls’ Clinton was recently spotted in Thailand filming a cameo role in The Hangover 2. Yeah, for real, the ex-President of the United States who lost it all by having it off with an intern, and who’s wife Hilary is still an active political leader, decided to piss off for a couple of weeks and hang out with a bunch of twenty somethings in the sunshine. He joins the cast alongside Liam Neeson, a late addition after objections from other cast members to an appearance by Mel Gibson. And lets face it, Mel’s problems (see following story) eclipse any involving our boy Billy. But you know what? Get him back into power, the man clearly knows how to enjoy himself and grab life by the horns – at least his own horn that is.

WE’RE all fully aware that Mel Gibson is, quite frankly, insane and that his favourite pastimes include shouting profanities very loudly into tape recorders and hating Jewish people. But ex-partner and full time media whore, Oksana Grigorieva, may have just helped Mad Max in his quest for sole custody of their daughter.

Secondly, after being ordered to stay away from the media during the court battle by the judge, Oksana just could not help herself as she recorded an hour-long interview with Larry King. That’s right, not just a quick quip to any reporters

However after current presenters Coleen Nolen and Carol McGiffin called Katie a ‘dick’ and a ‘monster’ we’re hoping they have some swing with the producers to stop this horrible, horrible thing from happening.

LINDSAY Lohan is apparently back to work this week and no, that’s not an euphemism for falling off the wagon. The starlet has been asked to do a photo shoot for Russian based clothing line Kira Plastina with the shoot apparently ending up in a major fashion magazine. The actress / model / mess is currently at the Betty Ford clinic seeking treatment for her drug addiction. The clinic gave Lohan the all clear to do the shoot, which will take place not too far from the clinic itself.

OKSANA BLOWS IT

First, it came out last week that Mel’s rants were in fact recorded on the one day. Of course the once-a-day release of the tapes painted a picture of nonstop ranting (which is fun to imagine, don’t you think?)

LOOSE KATIE THE UK’s work attendance is about to increase ten-fold with the news that Katie Price may well be joining the panel of Loose Women, meaning that it’s just not worth taking a day off work if you have to endure an hour of Katie Price chatting shit with a bunch of haggered old bints no matter how hungover you are.

following her or a fiveminute call to a radio station – a full one-hour interview, including playing those recordings for the millionth time. However, she was careful to say something nice, “Mel is a great father, but he needs therapy to deal with his issues so he can safely be around Lucia.” The question remains, where is Lucia while her mother is stretching out her fifteen minutes?

The Mean Girls star is struggling with her finances after work slowed down as her troubles increased. Her supposed “comeback” role as porn star Linda Lovelace is even in jeopardy after her spell in jail and now rehab. Sources say that Lohan will be paid for the shoot, but an amount has yet to be agreed upon. May we hope Lindsay has finally learnt her lesson!

98 DEGREES OF SEPARATION JESSICA Simpson is so happy that she is set to be taken up the aisle again that she announced the news in the same week that her ex, Nick Lachey, announced his engagement to his girlfriend of 5 years, Vanessa Minnillo. The singer and Eric Johnson have been inseparable since May, yet things never run simply in celebrity land. Joe Simpson, Jess’ father and manager, is concerned that his 22

daughter is strongly against signing a pre nup, despite the fact that her last divorce cost her $10 million. Well she was stupid enough to confuse tuna for chicken! Seems as though there will be a whole lot of kissing under various mistletoe in Tinseltown this Christmas - as BBM vomits in the corner.

HOLLYOAKS + FOLLOWING the aftermath of the Il Gnosh fire, Hollyoaks are doing their very best to keep all storylines under wraps. What we can tell you is that they did in fact do exactly what we asked them not to. They orphaned poor little Tom, again! Can that kid ever catch a break? First he loses his parents in a car crash, then Max gets killed, and now they upset the poor kid for the last few months by giving Steph cancer, only to then take her out in the Il Gnosh blaze whilst she 24

So having never shown the viewers his body, he’s been raised from the dead and is plotting something.

WE LOVE INDIE’S

FORMING five years ago at Manchester University, UK guitar band The Answering Machine are, with the imminent release of new album Lifelines, preparing to go overground. ALEX BERWICK caught up with singer Martin Colclough to discuss the record. Did you actively try to do something different on Lifelines? We’ve always wanted to progress and evolve the sound of the band, that just feels natural. As our own

lives bend and grow, it seems only right that our inspiration, and therefore our songs, do the same. You lived in the U.S. for a year. Did that change your perspective? There’s an optimism about life in the U.S., that seems a bit lost in our homeland. A few of the songs on the new

album are direct references to our time in New York. We have a song called Hospital Lung which I wrote in our Brooklyn apartment, and we recorded in Manhattan. I tried to make the song reflect my take on the city, and Pat’s lyrics on this song really outline his time there.

What was the thinking behind not signing for a major label? I guess there’s no certainty to success anymore. The industry plummeted into new lows. It was at this time that our current label, Heist Or Hit, came along and offered us a deal. It’s not a profit-led model, so in hindsight, it was the best thing we could’ve done.

PHOTOS We Love Indie

Launch night

The Charlatans

THE Charlatans came to the Metro and proved that, when you have as many brilliant songs as they do, age is no barrier to putting on a fantastic show. This band has by far outlived its “Manchester baggy” tag to become one of the greatest indie bands in the world. The crowd was a mix of ex-pat Madchester diehards, shoegazers and indie girls swooning over Tim Burgess still youthful looks. The set began with “Then”, and over the next hour and 45 minutes highlighted their back catalogue, here and there dropping tracks from their new album “Who We Touch” (my tip: buy it now!) “Telling Stories”, “Smash the System”, “Weirdo” and “One to Another” were all in there.

28

The crowd went mental as the band ripped into “The Only One I Know” following that up with “North Country Boy”, Tim stopping his vocal to allow the crowd to sing the title back to him. The band fully complimented Tim’s vocal range without drowning him out, and they all looked good in their new age mod gear. Once again a great night at the Metro, only 1 encore, which included “Love is Ending” and an elongated version of “Spronson Green”, but noone could say they didn’t get their money’s worth. Long live The Charlatans. Reviewed by Northern Soul Poster Boy (Northern Soul Poster Boy plays at MOTION, 4 December at the Hollywood Hotel).

Daniel Radcliffe David Yates Emma Watson (Harry Potter 5 & 6) IT’S hard to review a film that is essentially a two-hour trailer for next year’s final Harry Potter. But I’m going to try, goshdarnit! The film is dark and gloomy, almost like Empire Strikes Back in that nothing goes right for our lead characters. It may scare the kids but it’s more entertaining for us adults to watch. Fans of the book aren’t going to like this but there’s a fair bit that could’ve been edited out of the final cut. There’s a lot of exposition and plot points in here, but you’d think they’re all essential to the next chapter.

It’s also lucky these 11-year-olds they hired back in 2001 grew up to be good actors, isn’t it? The thing is, this is only half a film. A bloody long half, but half nonetheless. So there’s nothing resembling an ending, only a really long intermission. As a standalone film, there’s nothing to write home about but I’m sure it’ll be spectacular once reunited with its other half. Just go to the bathroom first, it’s a long ride. Ben Harlum

INTERVIEW

soul sister

Sister Bliss, as a founding member of Faithless and DJ in her own right, is one of Britain’s most popular figures in the electronica scene.

After a mountain of Facebook groups, petitions and demand, Faithless are coming back to Australia to headline Good Vibrations. BEN HARLUM was the most popular person in the office when he got to catch up with Sister Bliss. I hate to ask the obvious question but what has taken you so long to return? Well I actually came more recently than the band because I was DJ’ing, but it’s been bad organisation to be honest with you. We were self-managed for a long time but we have management now and have sorted everything out. I really don’t know why we didn’t tour the last album in Australia, which is frustrating because I know we have an absolute massive fanbase there but we’re not the most organised people, and I can only apologise for that - [laughs] - better late than never I guess! When there’s a demand for you to return, does that get back to you in the UK? There’s Facebook groups galore dedicated to the cause... Aw, bless! It’s incredible, it blows me away because I don’t live in a bubble but you make music in a very small space and you don’t realise how much of an impact you have on the wider world. You make an album and you’re having such fun in the studio but you’re filled with self-doubt, and it does blow me away that Faithless still have such a following because we aren’t the hot

new thing. I feel as part of the scene as ever and I’m proud to be a flagbearer for the electronic scene because it’s been dissed, knocked about and I’ve always begged to differ. When you’re so well known for the ‘Faithless experience’, is there pressure there to keep topping yourself? For me, the bigger the better! I love a big show and I think our music really translates. I also know our fans love to be up close so we did put together the Faithless Sound System gigs, where we went to clubs that could never hold the usual live show.

You’re coming down for Good Vibrations, is there one particular gig or festival set you’re most proud of? There’s hundreds! Glastonbury’s 40th anniversary was an incredible show, you couldn’t see where the crowd ended. I know it meant a lot to Maxxi, he really has been on fire all summer. We nearly cried at the end, we were both so moved by the people and it could possibly be the last time we perform there. Then I had to go back to London and take my son to school in the morning - the mad extremes of my life!

MARTY

48, Executive, 10th voted out

Ahh, Marty. He had the elder tribe (and the secret to immculate hair) in his pocket but fell victim to a dozen Survivor twists - giving up the immunity idol, a tribe swap and the merge to name a few. What was the deal with your hair, how did it stay up? [laughs] It cracks me up that the hair took on a life of its own, clearly I had nothing to do with it! It was salt, grime, sweat, and so many people during the season absolutely loved it. It’s back to normal now, but it was accentuated in my last few days out there when you added fear and anxiety. You are a fan of the show, what was your initial gameplan going onto the show? As a fan I knew I wanted to align with a couple of woman, that ended up working with Yve and Jill. I can get along with some women but it was important to have a couple who could influence other females on the tribe. They were the perfect alliance, Jill in particular.

34

Now was there a clear incident that started this feud with Jane or was it something different? It’s really inexplicable to me, from the beginning we targeted Jane on Espada and that made her deeply resentful. She approached the gang by telling them her husband had died and she needed the money, that didn’t sit well with me - I don’t know if it’s even true. She tried to use that to leverage favour and I didn’t respect her decision making, aligning with the two biggest knuckleheads in Wendy and Jimmy T. She was on the chopping block so she took that and became really venomous. Beyond that, nothing else took place and targeting her at Tribal was just me telling everyone to wake up and realise that she could go far in the game, nothing personal.

INTERVIEW to infinity and beyond

WITH the arrival of Toy Story 15 years ago, Pixar Animation Studios broke new ground for animated features not only with its landmark use of computers, but also by bringing traditional filmmaking techniques to the medium.

Modern Family Season 1 is available on DVD right now. Thanks to our friends at Fox Home Entertainment, we have 5 copies to giveaway - visit us at bbmlive.com/competitions.html for details!

was from a completely different design universe. We wanted it to still feel like a Toy Story film, but we also wanted to take advantage of the technology and the artistry that we’re capable of now. I believe we’ve created a film that sits nicely alongside those previous films, but it just looks exponentially better in so many ways.”

With Toy Story 3, Lee Unkrich (pictured, right) takes the keys to the car and drives the film to some exciting new dimensions in his role as director. “With Toy Story, we pioneered the notion of using traditional cinematic grammar to make an animated film,” says Unkrich. “And that’s what everybody does now. I was very instrumental in designing the camera work and, of course, cutting the first and second film. So there’s a continuity heading into the third film.” From a cinematography perspective, Unkrich explains that “We had an interesting challenge on Toy Story 3 because the tools and the technology have advanced quite a bit since Toy Story 2, and the artists at the studio have gotten so much better.” “When you look at the first Toy Story now, it’s relatively crude,” he adds. “After all, it was the first CG film. For Toy Story 3, I didn’t want the film to feel like it

As director of photography: camera, Jeremy Lasky worked closely with Unkrich on blocking and staging the shots. “We tried to keep our cameras grounded in what people are used to seeing historically in cinema,” Lasky says. “This isn’t a video game. This is a story, and things need to feel believable. You need to feel like you’re in this world, and it all makes sense. You want to focus on the story and not on what the camera’s doing. You want to get lost in the characters and their feelings.” Toy Story 3 is available on DVD and BluRay right now.

Metronomy IT seems Australian audiences just can’t get enough of Metronomy. Returning to Australia for a string of shows, including Harbourlife, Metronomy’s quirky pop is always a treat.

MELBOURNE NEWS NOT SWIMMING WITH SUCCESS A COLLEGE in Melbourne has cancelled its annual swimming carnival this week – because most of the students can’t swim. Makes sense. What’s next? School for the blind cancels archery competition? Idiots.

carnival has been dropping dramatically and, not only that, the quality of the swimming was really quite poor,” said College principal Barbara Mothersdale.

The decision to cancel the competition came after keeneyed (but dull-witted) teachers realised the same kids were winning all the events. The fact that several competitiors simply flailed about in the water as well was a bit of a giveaway. “We’ve been noticing over the last few years that the rate of participation at the swimming

The news comes as the Royal Life Saving Society today revealed that one in five children will leave primary school this year without the skills to swim the length of an Olympic-sized pool. We can only assume they found out this information by chucking 10-year-olds into a pool and seeing how many drowned.

SPIDER MAN IN YET another pointless charity stunt up there with baths of baked beans and growing over-large vegetables, a bloke who “doesn’t like spiders much” is set to spend three weeks in a shopfront window surrounded by the bloody things. In a not-thought-out-well plan, Nick Le Shouef was supposed to be living with 400 spiders – but they started eating each other because of a lack of food. There’s about 300 of them now, with a few crickets and cockroaches thrown in for spider food. “I don’t like spiders all that much, I must confess,’’ said Le Souef said as he embarked on his recordbreaking attempt. ‘’I’m not afraid of them but I don’t like them particularly.’’ Considering he’ll squash about 10 of the buggers every time he shifts his arse, we doubt they’ll be keen on him either.

HE’S MINE BROTHER IF YOUR brother went missing near an old gold mine and you spent the next 35 years looking for his body, spending $65,000 in the process and eventually driving yourself bankrupt, you’d perhaps think it was time to call it quits. Well don’t say that to Maryborough man Daryl Floyd who, despite having run out of money, is determined to carry on the rather pointless and life-wasting search for his sibling. He’s applied for more government funding to help his quest – despite no evidence whatsoever having been turned up over the last three decades. Do yourself a favour Daryl, give it up man.

THE BEST LAID PANTS IN THE BBM household, our natural antipathy towards washing clothes combined with a general lifestyle summed up by the phrase “lives like a pig” means bags full of dirty underwear are a common sight. We’ll quite happily go for months “recycling” the same 10 pairs of underpants rather than face the task of actually using the washing machine and hanging things out to dry. Generally speaking, however, all those used underpants are 44

our own. We’re not quite that dirty. That wasn’t the case for a 48-year-old bloke in Eltham who was collared trying to steal underpants off a clothes line this week. When police then raided his home, they found a skidmarktastic 10 garbage bags full of pants that he’d pilfered from various backyards. Disgusting bastard. Still, we’d prefer a drink with him over a stamp collector. BBM-582 // WWW.BBMLIVE.COM

CRYSTAL BALLS Our resident psychic, Crystal, tells you your fortune for this week Sleeping for 16 hours a day like a koala bear and living in an underground tunnel like a mole will save you money, but won’t win you friends.

to a Metallica concert, people who don’t discipline moaning children, people who whistle – they must all be punished by your vigilante justice.

Nor will a dog-like tendency to clean your genitals with your tongue.

Virgo

Gemini Aries YOUR lack of sleep begins to catch up with you. You’re burning the candle at both ends and you’ve got to learn you can’t have four hours sleep per night and function like a human being. The reason Keith Richards can stay up for nine days at a time is because of high grade narcotics. You can’t even afford a Pot Noodle so they aren’t an option.

Taurus YOU’RE no longer confident – you’re arrogant, and need to be taught a harsh lesson. Walking around every bar like you’re God’s gift doesn’t make you attractive to the opposite sex, but does attract flailing fists. Have some humility or deal with the consequences.

Cancer YOU feel more and more in touch with your animal instincts, but try not to take it too far.

64

YOUR musical knowledge may be second to none and your CD collection may make HMV jealous, but you must not inflict your singing voice on anyone. No matter how much alcohol you have don’t even think about karaoke. Once you start singing I Will Survive you’ll be surprised to see how many people try to prove the opposite.

Leo YOU’RE torn about your future direction and feel a return to your homeland may be overdue. Write a list outlining the pluses and minuses about both countries. This will bring into sharp focus the sheer misery inflicted by British weather, people and life in general.

Capricorn PUBLIC transport causes you great consternation as your patience runs out with your fellow inhabitants of the peasant wagon. People who listen to their iPods with a volume similar

If your old band mates are in prison or, even worse, in telesales, accept that it wasn’t meant to be.

Sagittarius YOU will be troubled by the futility of work and wonder whether there is more to life than nine-to-five drudgery.

NOTHING of any interest to anyone will happen to you this week. You will be neither lucky nor unlucky, just bored silly.

You realise life is too short to waste as a wage slave and you can now do everything you ever wanted.

Sorry, just cleaned my crystal ball and I can exclusively reveal that you are in for an absolute shitter of a week.

But don’t burn your bridges. After a fortnight sat alone in the pub playing pokies you will be desperate for a meaning to your pointless existence.

First you lose your job for being caught watching MILF porn while you were supposed to be developing a detailed business plan.

Libra YOUR continued phobia to all things creepy crawly will rear its ugly head again, forcing you to confront the problem.

You come to tell your missus the bad news – only to find her being quite boisterously serviced up the back passage by a much younger man. How’s that for poetic justice?

Does it not seem obvious that a spider, cockroach or beetle should be more scared of you, considering you’re approximately one million times the size of it and have access to knives and blow torches?

Aquarius

Scorpio

Pink hair, winklepickers, Global Hypercolour T-shirts you can never go far enough.

YOU will jump on the reunion bandwagon and try to contact old band mates in an attempt to re-create the magic of yester-year. If at first you can’t find a recorder or kazoo to suit your more mature sound, don’t give up.

YOU accept the time has arrived for a major image overhaul. It’s time to prove you aren’t boring and conservative and make people sit up and take notice.

Pisces IT’S time to stand up for yourself and stop being pushed around by bullies. Do it now you useless twat or I’ll punch you. BBM-583 // WWW.BBMLIVE.COM

EUROPEAN LEAGUES

FOCUS ON... SERIE A WE’VE not heard much from BBM’s favourite barmy bastard Rafa Benitez for a while, so we figured we’d drop in on Serie A and have a look-see for ourselves. Oh dear. In a somewhat predictable state of affairs, Rafa is struggling to fill the shoes of his treble-winning predecessor Jose Mourinho. We suspect it’s not so much the burden of expectation that’s seen Rafa’s side slip six points off the pace – more the fact that he’s a shit manager who somehow spawns his way from one lucrative job to the next.

A couple of weeks ago, defending champions Inter weren’t doing too badly – a few too many draws maybe but otherwise well-placed. Then they lost to Spurs. And now they’ve lost to AC Milan. At home. In fact, they’ve only won five of their 12 games in Serie A so far. Hardly the form of all-conquering European champions eh? “I feel the confidence of the president,” Benitez told Gazzetta dello Sport, which we’re hoping isn’t some kind of euphemism.

ASHES FEATURE ENGLAND LEGENDS

SINCE Flintoff retired, we’re a bit a thin on the ground for Ashes heroes these days. So where’s England’s next one going to come from? In the “maybe” pile, Greame Swann probably tops the list. He’s not just a great spinner, he’s got that cocky, in-your-face swagger that all truly great Ashes players have. Kevin Pietersen has the personality as well – but just needs to pull his finger out in terms of form – while Stuart Broad, James Anderson and Steve Finn are all “potentials” as well. Fingers-crossed we’ll have a new champion to cheer by the time the series hits Sydney in January. In the meantime, here’s BBM’s top five England Ashes legends...

#5 ANDREW FLINTOFF BAT: 31.69 BOWL: 32.07

TEST DATES 25–29 November (Brisbane, The Gabba) 3–7 December (Adelaide, Adelaide Oval) 16–20 December (Perth, WACA Ground) 26–30 December (Melbourne, Melbourne Cricket Ground) 3–7 January (Sydney, Sydney Cricket Ground)

The image of “Freddie” still pissed out of his face the morning after England’s Ashes triumph in 2005 is one that will remain with BBM until our alcohol-addled brain finally succumbs to Alzheimers. Scored a century during England’s crucial win at Trent Bridge and took five wickets on the fourth day of the final test match to help England secure a draw and regain the Ashes.

#4 HAROLD LARWOOD BAT: 19.40 BOWL: 28.35

#3 JIM LAKER

If Douglas Jardine was the brains behind the infamous bodyline series, then Larwood was its enforcer. The Nottinghamshire fast bowler remains one of the most controversial players in Ashes history after taking 33 wickets in 1932-33 with the Aussies unable to handle his short and fast (some would add d dangerous) deliveries. Despite being heralded as a hero for his performance he was later vilified by the cricketing hierarchy and never played a Test again.

#2 DOUGLAS JARDINE BAT: 48.00 BOWL: N/A

Still considered a pantostyle baddy by the Aussies as the mastermind behind the controversial “bodyline” tactics developed during the 1932-33 series to contain Don Bradman. What pisses off Aussies even more is the fact that it worked and England went on to win 4-1. Hurrah! Jardine was also known for his hatred of Australians and Australian culture. What’s not to love?

70

BAT: 14.08 BOWL: 21.24

After struggling to cement his place in the England squad, Laker produced a bowling performance in the 1956 Old Trafford test that is unlikely to ever be repeated. Laker took 19-90 in the match, including skittling the entire Aussie team in the second innings. A legend was born.

#1 IAN BOTHAM BAT: 33.54 BOWL: 28.40

He may come across as a bit of a knobhead off the crease, but he’s our knobhead. Not just a hero of 1981 - Beefy is the greatest Ashes cricketer ever. A swashbuckling batsman, fiery bowler, safe slip catcher and vicious party animal, Botham was a true star. In 1981 Botham - with the help of Bob Willis - won the third Test at Headingley for England from an impossible position, with the bookies giving England odds of 500-1 before Botham took to the wicket.

ASHES NEWS PREPARING TO FAIL OH the hilarity! The Ashes finally kicks off ff this week and just when we thought the e Aussie preparation couldn’t get any worse, they went and d stepped it up a notch.. Last Wednesday, all nine of the Australian team’s potential starting batsman were in action in one way or another – either in the domestic game against local opposition or playing England in the Australia A team. Over the course of the day, they made a combined total of 120. Arf! That’s a combined total of nine batsmen – no bowlers – and they still made a shit total. Admittedly, Simon Katich (above) had to come off on one run after hurting his shoulder, and the injured Michael Clarke

didn’t play but you’d think at least one of their stars would have made a decent total. Only Steve Smith, who is possibly further down the batting pecking order b than anyone else and t incredibly unlikely to face England next Thursday, was the only Th one to come away with w any respect after tonking England for 59. Apart from that, Michael Hussey, Ricky Ponting, Callum Fergsuon, Marcus North etc, etc all failed to make it past 20. England weren’t doing particularly well either in the final preparation game, to be fair, at the time of going to press, but we don’t really have any pressure on us and the match was heavily rain effected. It’s all good fun whatever way you look at it.

PUNTER GETS BEEFED UP WE all know Ricky Ponting’s a shit captain, but who else have the Australians got who’s ho’s better? Nobody, that’s who. That seems to be the (supposedly) sympathetic argument of England legend Ian Botham who gave under-flak Ponting (right) a big thumbs s up this week. “I’m amazed at the e stick Ricky Ponting’s ’s getting because ‘Punter’ is one of the he all-time greats and his record stands

out,” said Botham, carefully avoiding any reference to how good ‘Punter’ is as a captain. “He’s been a magnificent player for many years … it st stands up against any A Australian’s record in modern times. He’s up there with [Allan] B Border, which is a big rap.” Quite right Ian. As England fans, we can’t think of anyone we’d rather have as Ashes two-time losers Ponting as captain.

ENGLAND COOK UP A STORM THE Aussies were really desperate for Alastair Cook to fuck up. They’re still too scared of what Kevin Pietersen can do to wind him up, but Cook was the only other England player with potential question marks over his head heading into this series. Well last week he spanked 111 not out against South Australia in England’s penultimate preparation match. “I’d never been under the pressure I was last summer because I’d never had a trough like that,” said the Essex left-hander. But when you have a top score of 20-odd in four Test matches, you certainly do feel under pressure. Knowing I can play like that with my back against the wall has given me a lot of confidence.” This preparation lark just keeps getting better and better.

FLETCH LIVES! EVEN slightly sour-graped former England coach Duncan Fletcher has been bigging up England’s chances, saying their biggest danger isn’t – surprisingly – the fearsome bowling of Nathan Hauritz, it’s complacency. Fletcher believes England have never had better preparation for an Ashes series, claiming that in 2002-03, Darren Gough, Steve Harmison and Andrew Flintoff were all struggling. And in 2006-07, we had injuries to Michael Vaughan, Ashley Giles and Marcus Trescothick. “Not this time,” said Fletcher. “The team has had a chance to settle down and play well in their two warm-up matches. Compare that with Australia’s build-up. On the two Ashes tours I managed, the Australian pundits used to accuse us of using injuries as excuses. Now all the noise about fitness is coming from their side.”

THE CHICKEN DANCE WAS THE HIGHLIGHT Then again, being in the Southern hemisphere, half of it has to go on cans ns of Red Bull given what time you have to get up to watch the games – although h BBM would not encourage drinking alcohol in the morning because, frankly, y, you’re only a small step away from being ng classed as an alcoholic. It’s different iff you’re staying up though, of course.

They were totally outclassed by Sunderland who defended well and did not give Chelsea many chances.

Admittedly, a beer would have been nice during the Chelsea and Sunderland d clash since drinking Red Bull meant BBM was wide awake for the many taunts from Chelsea haters i.e. everyone we know.

And who does not want to see that celebratory dance by Asamoah Gyan? Even Bolo Zenden got into it, though he looked more like a chicken. At the rate Gyan is scoring, though, at least Zenden will get more opportunities to practice.

Indeed, after the third goal, BBM could not watch anymore. It wasn’t the scoreline that put us off though, it was the message from a Gooner fan saying “I am loving every minute of this”. We had to draw the line somewhere.

Can’t the reason they lost be they just played like crap?

But, when Chelsea suffer a humiliating loss the list of injuries immediately comes rolling out and the assistant coach, who was fired during the week, is suddenly made out to be some sort of lost managerial messiah.

The odds were 250-1 for Sunderland to beat Chelsea 3-0. Imagine how many y beers your $1 could have bought for that. at.

FOR years football analysts have used Chelsea as an example of a team that do not rely on one or two players. The point to the fact they have injuries and still manage to win games. Winning ugly, they call it.

MEANWHILE, just across the road on Merseyside, local laughing boys Liverpool are mightily pissed off with Fabio Capello after Steeeeeevie Gerrard crocked himself playing for England. Roy of the Rovers could be out for up to four weeks with a hamstring injury.

MATE’S-BIRD shagging Neanderthal, John Terry, has flown to Italy to see a specialist about his mystery leg injury, which could keep him out for months.

AND just in case you missed the news, an England side containing the mercurial talents of Jay Bothroyd and Jordan Henderson somehow managed to lose 2-1 to France at Wembley. Goals from Karim Benzema and Mathieu Valbuena put Les Bleus ahead and then giraffeQuasimodo hybrid Peter Crouch pulled one back

IN A role reversal of England’s fortunes, it was the fans rather than the players embrassing a nation in Italy’s 1-1 draw with Romania. Man City striker Mario Balotelli was the subject of racist abuse from around 100 exteme right-wing

FOOTBALL’S walking Timotei advert, Robert Pires, has signed for Aston Villa at 37years-old.

IN footballing terms, getting the thumbs up from the chairman is the equivalent to hearing the music from Jaws when you’re on the beach. You just know something bad’s going to happen. But we’re sure that’s not the case for Avram Grant who has just been backed at bottom of the league West Ham by vicechairman Karren Brady. Asked by BBC Radio 5 live if Grant would be boss at the end of the season, Brady dithered: “Almost definitely, yes.” Bet he feels great now.

MANCHESTER United’s tight-arse American owners and general hatefigures, the Glazers, plan to reduce the financial pressure on the club by paying off high-interest loans, estimated to be worth £220m.

THAT’S UNBELIEVABLE!

ALEX McLeish reckons Birmingham can beat Chelsea at the weekend. Don’t have a go, he’s only suggesting it. “Can we win a home game against Chelsea? That’s achievable,” McLeish said. “I’m not saying we will, I am saying we can.”

THOSE very naughty boys at FIFA, Amos Adamu and Reynald Temarii, have been banned from voting in the 2018 and 2022 World Cup hosting ballot following an investigation into corruption claims.

ALEX McLeish just wants you to know he wasn’t saying Birmingham will beat Chelsea, just that they can. “It is very rare to see the top teams losing three weekends in a row. But it is achievable and we can do it.”

CHAMPIONSHIPstandard club Rangers could be set for a takeover. Andrew Ellis and Craig Whyte are in talks with current incumbent Sir David Murray.

ALEX McLeish has been on to us again. He wasn’t saying the whole beating Chelsea thing was definite. “As I re-emphasise, I’m not saying we will but we can do it and we have got to believe we can do it.”

with ace pundit Chris Kamara

“SCOTTISH no-marks Airdrie United got themselves into hot water this week following their special match-day program for Remembrance Day. The club mistakenly used a picture of Nazi soldiers on the front cover coupled with the unfortunate slogan “Supporting Our Heroes”. The club has since issued a grovelling apology to fans, claiming they thought the soldiers were Australian troops, when they were infact German. Unbelievable Jeff!” More pencil-moustached punditry and footballing facts next week folks! 78

QUOTES OF THE WEEK “WE don’t talk. We played one year at Arsenal without talking.” Samir Nasri looks forward to catching up with BFF William Gallas in the North London derby.

“FABREGAS has apologised and Wardy has accepted it like a man. It’s like a throw-back to the days when you’ve broken someone’s nose and you buy them a pint at the bar.” Judging by the ugly bastard’s face, Mick McCarthy has been bought a lot of pints over the years.

“IT would be flattery to call you fans. You’re just a bunch of dogs. You bunch of morons are the main reason why Chinese football can’t make progress. You throw in stones after a man has fallen into a well.” Shanghai Shenhua footballer Wang Dalei makes a rallying call to his club’s fans.

“YOU are talking out of your hat. I would like to say out of your ass, but that’s a donkey and I don’t like having a go at donkeys. If some bright spark from the Premier League, or Barclays Premier League as we’re supposed to call it, wants to come down and have a chat and a cup of coffee...you’ll probably get it chucked in your lap.” Ian Holloway still won’t let the whole ‘weakened side’ issue rest.

“FOR ME, Robert Pires was, before his injury, the best left sided player in the world. With us, he used to literally fly.” Arsene Wenger gets a touch of the Jamie Redknapps and literally talks out of his arse.

And understatement of the week goes to... Carlo Ancelotti following Chelsea’s 3-0 battering at the hands of Sunderland. “It was a surprise, strange result,” he said.

ENGLAND EXPECTS WITH journalists now unfathomably allowed to attach the prefix “England’s” every time they mention Kevin Davies while Jay ‘who?’ Bothroyd became the first Championship player to get a call-up since David Nugent in 2007 this week, it brought back to BBM’s mind one of the darkest days in England’s recent history (and there are quite a few to choose from).

generation of England fan, we all believed we had a squad of world beaters capable of destroying any team put in front of them. Who needs Bagio and Klinsmann when i h? you’ve got Andy Si Sinton right?

We’re talking of Graham Taylor’s reign as England boss from 1990-1993 when “The Turnip” dished out international caps to pretty much anyone who said they fancied a game that weekend.

Well in BBM’s dotage we’re beginning to think maybe, just maybe, it wasn’t all Turniphead’s fault. Maybe he failed because he didn’t exactly have the best squad to choose from. After all, only a truly desperate man would give a cap to Geoff Thomas.

Of course, hindsight is a wonderful thing. At the time, as is the case with every

What’s our point you ask? Well call us controversial, but it seems to us that Fabio

Crapello (as he’ll almost certainly be remembered if we fail again at E Euro 2012) is facing a similar problem – that after you scratch the shiny su surface of England’s first XI there’s a layer of dogshit underneath, which is BBM’s beautiful way of suggesting that England just don’t have the depth to be classed as “genuine” contenders for a major trophy. And that’s not the fault of Fabio, it’s those utter arseholes at the FA who have done precisely sod all to develop and nurture young English talent in the intervening 20 years. Well done fellas. Now fuck off and die.

TOP FIVE WORST ENGLAND PLAYERS OF ALL TIME... STEVE GUPPY

MICHAEL RICKETTS Big things were expected of Michael Ricketts when he scored 15 Premier League goals in 2002, and was rewarded with an England cap against Holland. So where is he now? At 31-years-old, he’s just been released by Tranmere. Well done Michael.

Back in the early days of fantasy football, Guppy got a shed-load of assists for Leicester in 1999. At the same time, England had a real problem on the left wing. Guppy wasn’t the answer. Ever.

SETH JOHNSON One start against Italy in 2000 was enough to leave many an Englishman scratching their heads. Even more Leeds fans were left scratching theirs when they paid $7million to buy him from Derby the following season.

JOHN FASHANU Fash the Bash managed to nab himself two caps in a handful of days after several Arsenal and Liverpool play ers were absent due to a rescheduled league decider. Shortly afterward s, the FA introduced a new law bann ing anyone who’d used the phrase “awooga” from the England team .
