This rather tidy re-mix of the infamous scene from the 1971 version of Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory, where Gene Wilder angrily reveals that Charlie had forfeited his prize confirms that we definitely need more Gene Wilder in our lives.
Here’s the trailer for a new documentary on Ginger Baker, the chaotic English drummer who played with Eric Clapton and Jack Bruce in Cream during the 70s and is still regarded today as one of the greatest drummers of all time.
Of course there’s a catch and that is Mr Baker has a short fuse and a notorious reputation for being wildly unpredictable, (a possible result of heavy drug use throughout the years), which director Jay Bulger finds out via a broken nose.
We’re sure this documentary is interesting and if you have a deep appreciation for playing the drums then this film will be right up your alley, but to us it’s just the glorification of a person whose main contribution to society as a whole has about as much impact as a perfect melted cheese sandwich. Hey Baker why don’t you drum us up a cure for cancer? Yeah, didn’t think so.
And as for you Johnny Rotten, you wild and crazy, revolutionary punk who set the world on fire with your anarchic personality and anti-establishment views, don’t you have some butter to flog?
Nice to see one half of Flight Of The Conchords pick up an Oscar last night for best original song with Man Or Muppet from The Muppets.
Bret McKenzie was musical supervisor on the movie overseeing the songs on the film and writing three himself including this one which bagged him the golden statue.
If for some tragic reason you aren’t familiar with the work of Swede Mason then check out his official YouTube page for a collection of the greatest pop culture remixes ever created.
His latest features Arnie reciting that cringe inducing poem to a class of kids in that seminal classic Kindergarten Cop.

We never thought James Corden could do or say anything we’d actually enjoy. But then he goes and pulls it out of the bag and interrupts Adele’s acceptance speech for Album Of The Year so that ear rapists Blur can screech their way through not one but three of their songs.
Adele took it well though…by giving everyone in the room the middle finger. Classy.
These ear plus! They do nothing!
BTW we had no idea that the line ‘As bomb bursting in air‘, (at 0.48) was part of the American national anthem.
Right, listen up it may be Wednesday and we’ve only just hit the midway mark for the week but pull yourself together for Christ’s sake, roll up your sleeves, pour some coffee down your throat! Redo those buttons! Dress that belt buckle! Straighten that cap! And goddamn it, tuck up those pyjamas!
Do you want to end up like Charlie? Just look at his wee face.
Once again The Onion nails it. This coupled with Charlie Brooker’s excellent episode of his Black Mirror mini series, entitled 15 Million Merits, which took a healthy swipe at talent shows like The X Factor, gives us hope that one day this kind of vapid horseshit, profit driven bile will be forcibly removed from our TVs and airwaves carried out into an empty industrial estate car park and beaten to death by two large Bulgarian body builders.
That said if K’ronikka’s song was ever released the chances are it would probably end up a hit, so that said hope is akin to pissing in the wind.
Don’t misunderstand this post we are not nor will we ever be part of Gaga’s Little Monsters fanbase, we just like to watch her in action doing what she does so well, which we have no idea what that is but it certainly holds our attention.
Here’s the official music video for Lady Gaga’s latest single Marry The Night. As you’d come to expect it’s basically 14 minutes of complete pretentious nonsense but at the same time strangely compelling. Ever since she performed live on The X Factor as a headless woman we realised that we were warming to her and what other artisit do you know can pull off a nervous breakdown in a bath filled with Cheerios? Some critics have labelled her the new Madonna but we’ve always viewed her as the new Alice Cooper…but with bewbs.
