IFMiB’s Commenter of the Week: Badhedgehog!

April 18, 2010

A little Siouxsie for yousie.

Badhedgehog* is another wonderful example of the only kind of commenter who should be allowed to click the “leave a comment” button. Funny. SHARP. Cheeky and wonderfully irreverent. She makes us laugh and think, like a James L. Brooks movie. And if she were in fact a James L. Brooks movie, hands down she’d be BROADCAST NEWS, which is my favorite!

  • “Sade gets accused of being yuppie background music, tied in with a bunch of other images ‘n’ tropes of the mid 80s UK yuppie thing: London wine bars, stripped pine furniture, suits, dinner parties. It seems to be quite a strong association. On the other hand, people who* get Sade tend to** see her as on of the great artists who always come out with a great album so it doesn’t matter that you wait 10 years for them to make one (see also, Kate Bush).”
  • “Totally. It’s so much about giving people someone else’s back to trample on. Compare the kick-’em-when-they’re-down approach of celeb gossip magazines (print and online) and the good old UK tabloids (heaps of stories with headlines like MY DRINK HELL, MY DRUG AND BOOZE SHAME) and of course the “true story” magazines (photos sometimes posed by models). Here’s someone more fucked-up than you are! Clamber on!”
  • “Ahhh! Dinner With Gershwin! 1987 earrings! Songs I know the words to because they were printed out for your learning pleasure in Smash Hits! It isn’t that long ago that I was slagging off 1987 for being a terrible year for music. And now I keep on being reminded of really good pop songs from 1987.”
  • “Hang on, hang on…Haven’t they just offered her a year’s free supply (A YEAR’S FREE SUPPLY) of (sorry, ACAISUPPLY.Com)? A year’s free supply of the website? Not even a year’s supply of the unpleasant berry in question? This is a con of a con! Gabby can offer them a year’s free supply of fuck right off.”
  • “There’s a little pillock who needs to crawl back up Nietzche’s arsehole and next time, come out as a better style of turd. Pillock.”
  • There’s a large streak of gothly opinion that holds that Siouxsie can do no wrong.

    You know, at first I read it as, “A large STEAK of gothly opinion”. But either way, it’s awesome.

    I look forward to Hedgehogly opinions!

    I thought it was “steak” too, which was equally as hot, given the circumstances (I was hungry at the time.)

    Well done, badhedgehog! I love your SN btw. Is there a story behind the name? Sorta begs the question, what do you do about a bad hedgehog?

    We have lovely parting gifts.

    Yes, including the home edition of IFMiB! Perfect for deconstructing at the dinner table.
