It’s a long way to the shop, if you want a sausage roll

What we have is an asshole candidate for President with an inadequate running mate beating up on the press, telling reporters they’ve got the story wrong and the candidates should be left alone.
Utterfuckinghogwash.
But it’s not too different in the music business.
Unable to sleep last night, I started checking my e-mail. Every day I get this missive from England entitled “Record Of The Day”. It’s got an exhaustive series of links. And scanning through them, I found this article:

The End of a Proxy Girlfriend.

The End of a Proxy Girlfriend.

So now its time to say goodbye to all our company….. R.O.S.E. etc etc

Rose, Scooters Proxy Girlfriend, has decided that it sux here and she will raise the IQ of both countries by moving to Australia.  We have been through denial, and now we are at the disbelief faze, soon she will be gone and due to our collective short term memory loss we will not even remember who the hell Rose was.
So I propose we all get bizi putting some of the memories down …
