"War on Christmas"

War on Christmas. Ask Bill O'Reilly. There is a war on Christmas. Waged by people such as myself, secular atheists who want to live in a country where all belief systems are treated the same, rather than have one overarching one in which we all have to partake.

I hate applying for jobs.

Are you the editor of a national, regional or local paper offering paying jobs to jobbing journalists? Are you the editor of a music magazine looking for someone to write for you?

Well I'm a fully qualified media/journalism prick and I'd like it if you hired me pretty please.

I'm in a quandary. Media aren't hiring, not journalism, and I'm not really qualified for anything else. Any other job, I'm overqualified for. I've applied for standard office jobs and I'm too well qualified for that, they won't have me because my CV is so journo.

Hoo ray.

In other words. I still don't have a job. If you know of one in the Edinburgh area please do get in touch.

Do you even lift Marty?

So Ripple Music asked me to write about the heaviest thing ever. So I did.
Um... The internship went well. Though that's the problem in the media is because you online reading pricks have sucked all the money out of the operation and now they don't even have the money to get freelancers to shift sick days. You merciless bastards. To repent for this, go out and buy five copies of every newspaper on the stands that isn't morally objectionable on principle (that would be the Mail, the Sun, the Star and, um... yeah).

Don't eat the brown acid. Or the green eccies.

Lions ride for free.

New Muso's column which I quite like, and I've got a week-long internship at the Evening News next week. I'm on the verge of 'making it's the television people say. Also the images on this blog, as you may have noticed, have ceased to have any relation to the content.

Holiday ends tomorrow

Time to scarf down the last of those carbs before hitting Edinburgh journalism hard. You WILL see me around.
