I was appalled at Earls' criticism of One Eskimo singer Kristian Leontiou in his review of their Kandi single. Kristian quit doing solo music due to feeling uncomfortable with pressure from the industry. Yet I remember him for his Top 20 album. Calling him a "failed pop puppy" was an insult to a talented musician. Chris Wing

Earls: After the money Polydor threw at him, his solo career can be deemed a failure. And One Eskimo are wretched.

Hello There

I feel like the old guy muttering to himself in the street corner, with pigeons all over him.

There's a muttering old guy covered in pigeons in every town in the world. He usually has beard with bits of food in it, which is probably what attracts the pigeons. Hmmm.

Cheer up- it's summer! Actually, I've looked out the window.

David wasn't alone in noticing Take That mime at the Brits. They're overrated, living off old fame, and when they split up again their solo albums will once more be a failure. Taz

Aaron shouldn't be surprised at Rolling Stone's gushing review of the new U2 album. They, q and NME are there to serve well-known artists. Magazines like Record Collector and Mojo are better for obscure acts, but stick to PS or Allmusic.com. Tony Christou

An Ode To My College Course

Music Technology
How I adore thee
You are not dead and mouldy
Like a rotten plant or tree
I love you, it's plain to see
Oh music technology!

Anyone know any words that rhyme with technology? I'm planning a second verse!
Spandorexxa

I think one verse is more than enough, thank you!

I'm shocked at Earls' review of U2's new album. No Line On The Horizon is arguably their best since Achtung Baby. Considering U2 have been going for 30 years, it's a remarkable album. Earls never seems to give decent bands a good review- he's so negative and should cheer up. Start listening to music, rather than looking to criticise all the time. Matt Howlett

Earls: Sorry, Bono. Please don't have me killed.

5 Fun Things To Do In Bromsgrove
(to prove to WLW that there are Ziners in Bromsgrove)

1 Skank on the bandstand
2 Skank in the high street
3 Stand in the way of skaters at the skatepath
4 Put your cap on the back of your head and scream "No way" in a Brummie accent
5 Find some Charford kids and ask them if they're local
The Fishmonger of Doom

I stand corrected, and to think I was going to Spain this year.

I agree with Rich about the state of current hip hop. Chris Brown is tragic, and even Snoop Dogg is making trash these days. The genre peaked in the early '90s with Dre's Chronic, Da Lench Mob and Onyx. Now it's watered-down and bland. Kyle Servera

Kyle Falconer isn't just a ned, he's a gadge. He's a product of environment. He's a product of environment. But that doesn't stop him and his three gadgie pals making quality music and putting on great live shows. Rancel BC

WLW

This is my second letter to Zine and, in my desperation to avoid one-hit wonder status, I have conducted a brilliant plan to ensure this gets printed.

Unfortunately, I can't be bothered with it, so I'm just going to resort to old-fashioned begging. Please? Please? Pleeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaassssssse?
Schintarella

Well, it worked, didn't it? I must be in such a good mood.

WLW

I'm new to the whole Zine world but would like to become a resident. Here's my application form.

I sleep until 2pm on a daily basis.
My favourite food is cheese.
I only pick my nose in public.
I find Jade from BB attractive.

Oops- gone too far. Did I mention I love you, WLW?
Dougie D- Man of Mysteree

You did, but the Jade thing- sort that out pronto.

WLW

If your only ambition was to be a complete failure, would you have achieved your goal because you had achieved nothing or not achieved your goal because you had achieved nothing?

Similarly, if you had achieved your goal while this was your ambition, would you have failed your ambition, therefore achieving your ambition and therefore failing in your ambition?

Ziners

I would like to express my hatred for songs that fade out at the end. It's just laziness by the artist. Can you imagine if when watching a film, all of a sudden, the screen just faded?

I for one would be very annoyed.
Alone With Everyone

But then again, some songs just beg to be faded out double-quick.

Susan Or Steph?

George the Duck-Filled Fridge, you're wrong! Susan Kennedy is the best-looking one in Neighbours and everyone knows that. I'm the only solitary member of her fan club, but give me a couple of months and I'll have at least three more!

If she was to squeeze into a pair of hotpants and release a single, she'd definitely give Kylie and Holly a run for their money in the charts.
Subatomic Genius

Sweet Jesus- don't put ideas into the woman's head!

Things In Adverts It Would Be Great To See In Real Life

The lightbulb "ding" from the Nescafé adverts.

A big long tongue like the one in the Irn Bru adverts (even though I think Irn Bru is rubbish- and I'm Scots!).

OK, so I got stuck after only three... so sue me!
Satan's Rubber Duck

I'd like to see the AOL woman in real life, for obvious reasons.
