In My Own Words:
I hate Amazon because of their petty minded censorship. Don't buy from these c**ts as they don't believe in free speech. They like 'positive' reviews of cr*p because the m*r*ns think it boosts their profit margin. It doesn't. It just p*ss*s people off.

F*cking Amazon

Franz Ferdinand ~ Franz Ferdinand
Franz Ferdinand ~ Franz Ferdinand
In 1990 Glasgow was named "European Capital of Culture." In 2004 it finally merited the title by serving as the launchpad of one of the most cultured rock bands on the planet: Franz Ferdinand, a group of four musicians from different parts of the UK, who met less than 2 years ago on the Glasgow student/club scene.

1.0 out of 5 stars Big Heid - Wee Man, June 29 2004
This is all we need - yet another book telling us how great we Scots are. Recently, we've had Hermann's "How the Scots Invented the Modern World," Buchan's "Capital of the Mind: How Edinburgh Changed the World," and Lamont's "When Scotland Ruled the World: The Story of the Golden Age of Genius, Creativity and Exploration." Enough already!!!
This pathological need to hear our praises continually sung and to have the sound of our backs being patted forever ringing in our ears is pathetic. Bruce's new book takes this national self-obsession mania to new heights by taking a leaf out of the Scottish Rugby Association's book and granting Scottishness to anyone… Read more
