Home of the Deluded Dozen
Thank you for sharing your picture Lizzy.Looks like that restaurant has style.
What a great new site this is. How do I sign up to become a contributor?
Good afternoon Miss Kerry On Kemping, how lovely that you'd like to join us. All we need is an email address to add you; can you DM me on Twitter?
I'd love for Kerry Ann to become a contributor. Does she have a Twitter account though?
Oh. Valid point.
I wait with interest to see if Ms Kemping signs up to become a contributor.
Do you think if you were a woman, you would have less, equal, or more success as an internationally known recording artist?You ask this question like I’ve had any success at all! You must only look at the radio ‘playlists’ to realise what a male orientated world the music industry is. To find a female artist on playlists of radio stations such as XFM is like trying to find a hit from Johnny Marr’s solo albums. You have to ask yourself what it takes to become a successful female recording artist. If it was brains and intellect then Patti Smith would have been number one for several decades. If it is the voice then it would be Joni Mitchell. If it is politics then it would Buffy. But of course none of these things matter. The thing that sells with female recording artists is, unfortunately still, sex. Those who wear the least clothes will sell the most. Driven and managed by sex mad, chauvinistic, male record label bosses, singers are forced to perform erotically in each video they make to the satisfaction of these bosses who presumably watch this videos to excite themselves when their wives have left them.To answer your questions, I would have had no success at all because I would have refused to play that game. Some things are worth more than success and money. I would still have my integrity as I clean the spillages in aisle four.
I quite agree. XFM is the only radio station I can bear until they play Florence and the Machine for the 33rd time that day. But, they pointed me in the direction of Lucy Rose, who I actually really do like a lot, but she will remain relatively unknown as in my opinion she is a great singer/song writer. You missed a spillage in aisle three...
Didn't even finish my comment off!No bother.
Radio 6 Kerry; Florence is a regular. Also less gender biased than other stations.
