OK, I Admit It

The reason I used to hate Charlie Brooker so much is because I really, really wish I'd written the original Nathan Barley.

It's only taken me six years to admit that. I feel an overwhelming sense of disburdenment. Mingled with a terrible headache.

Magic stuff.

It's fab, isn't it? Especially the bits about Kilroy in small print. Or just all of it, really.

Thank you for reminding me of some of my favourite things on the internet ever. Ooh it's like the last six years never happened.

At this point I might as well admit that in 1999 I lived on Westbourne Grove. However I have never owned a pair of fashionable trainers, and spent much time wanting to maim the proto-Barleys in the "pool lounge" downstairs.

I remember being very excited to get it each week in - was it in TV Go Home? That was the first internet circulation thingy I ever signed up for. I used to worry that I was not like all those cool Clerkenwell people, but it helped me feel a lot better about it.

Has anyone bought Screen Burn?

Screen burn? Christ - I didn't realise you had to pay for that now! Is there *anything* they won't try to sell?! I prefer blog burn where you obsessively stare at someone's blog for so long it gets burnt onto your brain. That is still free - thank god.
