  • @JamesMOMB Yay! #
  • Glorious day in South of England. Got up later than intended, but just had lovely meal in Oxford village pub with friends. #
  • (The food was okay. Company/setting elevated the lunch, though. Another cheat weekend.) #
  • @joe_hill Marvel, easily. Potter plot may be tight – as a closed universe ot would have to be – but writing is aggravatingly cheap & token. #
  • @joe_hill …also, there is nothing IN Potter that I hadn't already seen elsewhere. Often in mainstream comics. Rowling did what Lucas did. #
  • @joe_hill …pulled together a bunch of established tropes & archetypes & simplified into bite-sized chunks. I prefer invention. #
  • @joe_hill (Having said that Marvel/DC/Rowling ALL guilty of cynical/offensive/arbitrary retroactive sexuality attribution, so fuck 'em all.) #
  • @Susie_Nutbar Hello! Lovely at this end. Hot and breezy and cool. In all ways! #
  • @emslj We are visiting friends, one of whom is insisting on it. But I'm not actively engaging. I'm a grumpy old man! #
  • Breaking cover to say that Albania reminded me far too much of Kim Jong UK's peeps in Team America. #
  • …so far Bosnia is the only performance that didn't feel like 1st couple weeks of X-Factor. #
  • Saw this lot on Britain's Got Talent. Any second they're going to massacre the Beastie Boys. #
  • (I meant massacre a Beastie Boys song. Obvs.) #
  • @akirathedon it's just warming up. And what do YOU think? #
  • Norway are spunking a perfectly chunky track on some pretty blah pretty-boy vocals. Still, sounds as good as any 2012 pop chart fodder. #
  • Having an emotional reaction to Romania, on tv while we play Articulate. #
  • Turkey are very confusing me. #
  • @StacebobT Hah! I meant because ethnically I'm predisposed to hate them but those capes were fun. #
  • @andydiggle Worryingly, these songs seem better than I'd been led to believe they have been for years. #
  • Euro Gordon Leavitt freaking me out with lady crazy hand dancers. #
  • That middle presenter is basically Conan O'Brien redesigned by Tim Burton. #
  • That Greek girl was properly hot, actually. But then, most nationalities scrubbed up well. #
  • @Chris_TOMP lols! #
  • @emslj I totally missed Cyprus. Maybe it's not too late to find myself a nice Greek girl, huh? My family would be so proud. #
  • @MikeDraws That's a good ph… Hey hang on, more handsome? #
  • Lol, that lass was hilariously sarcastic. What was that all about? #
  • Rory Bremner!! #
  • @bevismusson I thought Conan O'Brien #
  • Wait, I think I got turned around somewhere, which one won? The weird operatic space lady or capoeira bird? #
  • @Chris_TOMP Sweden? But… But you're not even IN Europe! #nearcanada #
  • Amy is driving us back from Oxford. We just loudly reprised breakdown from Shatner's Common People during intro to Baba O Riley. #wuvtruewuv #
  • @lucypepper Yay! Happy birthday! #
  • @Chris_TOMP touche! #
  • @Geebie I think you should have a Dm from me btw. #
  • @StacebobT Ahem. AHEM! For fuck's sake. @JeffLemire #
  • @JeffLemire You could try #MOMBcast Best weekly comicbook podcast recorded on Thursday nights in Southampton. http://t.co/2WtzSUfU #
  • @StacebobT Ah, balls. Well, we only talk about comics for around a third of running time. Both of us! @JeffLemire #
