Brits Happening Tonight 

Yes we are quite lazy about actually updating this site, despite relaunching it in a blaze of mediocrity. Oh well! Fortunately there's a big music event happening tonight, but we won't be covering that as we're going to be watching the always disappointing Brit awards instead. We'll probably write it up tomorrow, but we'll definitely be covering it live on twitter (@flumcake) so feel free to join us there as we throw our hurls of disgust out into the cyber-ether. Again.

But What About The Elephants? 

So, Blue are going to be representing the UK in Eurovision this year. The "Who?" we know, but the "Why?" is something we're still struggling to understand. Perhaps, aware of the fact that Ireland might be sending Jedward overseas, we've decided to send a joke act in as well, or perhaps they overheard someone saying that the UK only wins Eurovision once in a blue moon and got confused. Who knows, the only thing that's certain is that we're going to be the first act to ever get negative points in the competition.

The song is called I Can - which may be an attempt to trick people into voting for it by making them believe they're pre-registering for the latest Apple hypertech gizmo - and, while we've not actually heard it yet, we do know exactly what it's going to sound like and will not be surprised when they start making anguished expressions towards the camera two thirds of the way through the song, just before they get up from their stools in time for the final key change. Antony has certainly been practicing for this moment, having recently been caught with an anguished expression on his face as he stood at a cash machine, not only taking money out and having a conversation on his phone, but embracing the world of multitasking by merrily pissing down his leg as he did so. Still, who says Blue can't produce a number one these days?

Rumours that Lee Ryan is going to have his tongue removed to stop him saying anything stupid before the contest are entirely correct, and are unlikely to hamper his singing ability in anyway whatsoever.

Saturdays Everyday 

So we went to see The Saturdays in Glasgow yesterday. Up was where we went from here. (Actually, it was West, but the girls have yet to write a song about that particular direction. Selfish cows). The quick review is that they were ace and we liked Mollie the best, but below is all the things they did and didn't do:-
