So David Beckham only wears his undies once. Well if reports are to be believed he buys new Calvin Klein Underwear every month and buys £1k’s worth – I don’t know about you but that’s a lot of money on smalls.

I reckon he just wants a new lucrative sponsorship contract. I’m wondering how long it will be before he is signed to be the new body of CK undies. I prefer Freddie!

David Beckham spends a staggering £1000 per month on his underpants.

The Real Madrid and England star buys his Calvin Klein Pro Stretch underpants from a department store in Madrid every two weeks.

A source told the Sunday Mirror newspaper:” He buys 30 pairs every time and spends between 800 and 900 Euros (£545 to £615). He never buys anything other than Calvin Klein from the Pro Stretch range.”

Beckham‘s extravagance doesn’t stop there- he gets through two pairs a day and throws them out after they’ve been worn only once!
The football star chooses from three different styles in the range: hip briefs, trunks and boxer briefs

More Live 8

Okay so I’ve tried to be calm and not rant but I’m going to have to now.
The whole thing has just wound me up tighter than a tight thing.

Imagine a place where people are so poor they cannot feed their children let alone themselves yet others have more money than they could ever spend.

The aims of Live 8 were to stop this imbalance, ending poverty.

So the fact that the event itself had the same dual standards was horrifying.

It was shameless elitism that had up to 15,000 Pimms and Champers drinking corporate hangers-on in a section to the side and in front of the stage, whilst keeping the fans sober and hemmed in behind a fence a football pitch away from the music and the stars.

Having spent most of the day in with the real fans in the main section I was shocked when I came into the Golden Circle to see people ordering £100 bottles of champagne. Others complaining the hot water had run out in the plush loos with carpetting and expensive lotions and handwash. What I guess they failed to understand was that the other side of the fence had the usual festival portaloos. More so I think they were missing the point. Millions in africa have no water let alone hot water to wash their hands after going for a pee.

Sir Bob was making noises about people making money of the back of selling their tickets on ebay yet today a search for Live8 brings up more results than almost anything else I’ve seen on ebay. Surely a blanket ban would have been better.

I’m now wondering if Live8 was more about the music industry looking to further it’s artists whilst showing them in a good light than it was about poverty. The most obvious of these being Mariah Carey, showing obviously false affection for the poor african children yet demanding a mic stand and water whilst doing her self promotional set. Mariah I think you missed the point love.

Brands gone bad

Orange are brilliant. Well I used to think so anyway. So much so that I have recommended them to all of my friends and at least 5 of them have switched.
Their customer service is great. Up until last week.
I used to have a price plan that included orangecare insurance. Somehow or other over the years I no longer have this. I naturally had no idea having never needed to claim on my incsurance.
Last week My Nokia 7610 stopped working properly. It no longer reads any media card and the phone crashes when I get text messages whilst it tries to save things. I called Orange and they said no problem they would get a replacement out next day – the usual fantastic service. Until they called back to say that they couldn’t as I had no insurance. I’d have to send it back to Nokia or pay £30.

Okay so I’ve used Nokia phones now for over 10 years. Never a problem until this phone. I send it back for repair and start using my old Nokia 6100. I was impressed to receive the phone back in 3 working days despite them saying it could take up to 14. Sadly when I got it home the problem is still there. So not fixed after all then.

So I’m now feeling a little let down by two of my most trusted brands.
In July my contract is up and I think it’s about time I tried a motorola phone and Vodafone.

the rise and rise of the scally

okay so now you can sell practically anything on ebay be prefixing it with the word chav or scally. as in scally’s used footie shorts – see they will sell much quicker and for more money than your regular footie shorts. especially if you add the phrase ‘gay int?’ to the end.
There are even gay clubs trading on chav appeal. dress code is trackie bottoms and rockports obviously. and if you want you can add a bit of bling too.
So now whilst reading axm it would appear that scally culture has permeated as low as the chatline.
“My life on a rough Liverpool council estate” Robbie, 18 “Hear what me & me scally mates get up to” Dial 0909 0600 XXX
See now I grew up north of Liverpool and the scouse accent has always been easy for me to mimic. In fact I have used that to my benefit at times if you catch my drift.
So anyway back to the chat lines. With titles like “Let DSS bloke **** me for a crisis loan” and “Me **** peeps out the leg of me shorts” oh and then the classic “****ed by the rozzers in the bogs” and “Let drug dealer have me a**e” you can be sure there are plenty of callers.
I laughed at the fact that every time they use the word lad, teen or young they had p ut (18+) afterwards and I imagined some american accent doing this as a voice over at the end of a cheezy commercial. “Actors all 18 years or older, some scenes may not be based on true events, and in no way indicates the personal preferences of the actors involved.” (but hey you know they like it when they play gay).
So I’ve decided to start mye own phone line. I’ll borrow heavily from the trackie bottom titles and do some fab scripts.
How about “Cheeky scouser scally boy(18+) does London” 078 0150 XXXX
Or “Shooting c*m down the leg of me trackies” no not floating your boat?
Okay this one will get you ringing, “I **** off into me mate’s skanky undies”. Well okay maybe not but it made me chuckle.
Right anyway I think it’s time for me to do some audio blogging. Feel free to email me ideas for script and I’ll do me best scouse accent like and split the £1/min with you.
Pics of me in trackie bottoms optional.

great stalking potential

Okay so normally I complain about stalking potential from the other side. This time however I’m finding it quite amusing to look up how much my neighbours have paid for their flats since I moved in. Also if you know the road and approximately when someone moved in you can find the address (if not too many people moved at the same time) and how much they paid for it. Better still this is a free service. Apparently you can go to the official land registry site and pay £2 a search but hey. I like my free!
