Safe Text

MTV UK is having another * Text Week* which seems to now be every week. Every show is like people texting in stuff with mobile phones, eg competitions, messages at the bottom of the screen. etc. I am not sure what MTV gets out of it. I mean if they have a premium line competition, they get money from it, but text messages make them no money, just the people texting pay something.

There are signs on the screen saying "text *0#" if you do not want us to keep your details", so they probably sell mobile numbers or something.

It's sad really, MTV USA is 20, and constantly has repeating programmes rarely showing music videos, and the UK version just shows constant shows of videos with no presenters. So anything that can have messages at the bottom, is a hit for them lol. Its so sad how it has become, and it amused me the number of people over the web slagging off MTV 20's birthday.

Today in a "Text Conference" (lame name I know), they had a British boy band called "Blue". They have had one hit so far. In this show people text in questions and someone texted this, live on air....

Lee, Would you sing acappella for me, cos I love to be serenaded. luv Jonny x

They saw this question and were asked it, and they laughed. They did not say anything offensive,but I thought they were rude! Their fan base is probably 90% gay, and I am sure now maybe people will not bother buying their stuff. Laughing like "ewww a man".

Well I am sure no one will have ever have heard of them in 1 year anyway, they have not had a strong presence yet.

Amusingly Victoria Beckham was singing at the weekend and her microphone fell off and she kept "singing" and was obviously miming. The press went insane here today cos she has her lip pierced, zzzzz. I cannot decide who is my worst spice girl, Geri or her. They both have crap voices, songs, and mime constantly. Although I think they may have sung live in the Spice Girls, now they are so like "plastic" eugh

Had a sleep over with my friend this weekend and got drunk on Baileys, or Baileys cheap non brand substitute LOL. It just made us sleepier and not wanna get up from the sofa hehe.
We had video sex with Catherine's Fiancee. Okay conferencing lol. I still hate going live on camera!
Cos he reads my journal, I have to say he is very good looking and has a cool homepage here hehe Can I steal your bubble machine now?

It was a good weekend really.

I got my bank account suspended again, with a wrong security question lol. It is so so embarrassing phoning up to get it "reset" and when they ask? "what is your username?" and you say shoppingqueen. It's been my Internet handle for years, but having to say it on the phone argh.

I saw "Earth Girls Are Easy", yesterday. It's so awesome! Big hair, slightly insane, and cheesy and a salon called Curl Up And Dye. God bless the 80's!
