Two cheers for Virgin

Loose Change is a stupid film; if you believe its premise, then you’re an idiot.

However, Virgin Atlantic showed it had balls by making the film available on its in-flight video-on-demand service: even I could have predicted that doing so would provoke a shitstorm of whining Yank cuntery. Far too many people seem to believe that September 11 is so fucking unique or special (or whatever) that we shouldn’t mock, dissect or ill-infomedly speculate about it.

One un-cheer to Virgin for backing down in the face of the inevitable shitstorm – although then again, it’s probably not worthwhile for one commercial business to bother challenging a nation’s worth of moronic perceptions in order to show a film made on equally moronic premises.

    I remember the carnival of Cowboy Movie death and violence American Airlines once treated me to – “that’s a bit off colour”, I thought.

    I wouldn’t have minded, but it was just the shootings, one after the other… And my hangover was setting in, and they wouldn’t give me any more booze.

    It got worse: Runaway Bride.

  2. It’s like a buffet of fuckheads – I can’t believe I hate a bit of everything!

    Can we put this one to bed? 9/11 was the worst thing that’s ever happened on national television. And that’s it.

    I have plenty of sympathy for the victims and their families, but none whatsoever for twats with websites who keep picking at the scab.
