I got one of those flyers through the door yesterday from probably the most famous pizza delivery firm there is.
On the flyer it had a brand new feature called a ‘Pizza Tracker’. It allows you to track your pizza as it’s being cooked and delivered to your door.
Is anyone else getting a bit fed up with duet albums?
Now don’t get me wrong, I’m all in favour of tracking when you’ve bought something important or expensive on Amazon and you want to know when it’s likely to arrive so you can be in when it’s delivered.
But tracking a pizza? How hungry would you have to be to track a pizza? It’s supposed to take no longer than 30 minutes.
The only way I’d do that would be if they were delivering it from Italy!
Van Morrison has announced the release of his new duet album where he collaborates with the likes of Michael Buble and Mick Hucknall.
Now is it just me, or is anyone else getting a bit fed up with duet albums?
Ever since Tom Jones did one a few years back other stars have been jumping on the bandwagon and making them.
Here’s what annoys me about them.
Firstly, in most cases, they’re not proper duets, because the stars are in different studios in different parts of the world.
A sound engineer and an editor are just using their skills to put their two contributions together.
Secondly, isn’t it just a bit lazy bringing out an album yourself and getting other people to sing half the songs for you?
A report into Britain’s libraries says they need to become more like high street coffee shops if they’re going to survive.
So if libraries do this expect the following…
It’ll take the staff longer to give you your book than it will to read it and they’ll try to sell you a bookmark costing £12 every time you try to order your book!
Let’s keep libraries how they are, please.
