Diary of an old cheeser

Hi there! Like other blogs, this is my chance to wax lyrical (some might say talk utter cr*p) about a) what's happening in my life b) all of my pet obsessions in particular music, tv, movies, books and other generally connected things, quite often of the retro, old and "cheesy" variety. Hence the title of my blog. Feel free to leave a comment if the mood takes you. There's nothing like a good chinwag about one's favourite topics and besides I love to meet new people! Cheers, Simon

It's a dance-off!!

Good grief! The Celebrity Big Brother housemates actually seem to be enjoying themselves.

I am referring to last night’s CBB in which the entire house engaged in a Steps vs Jacksons dance contest. One group of housemates were made to dress up and impersonate former girl-boy band Steps, “singing” their old hit “Deeper Shade of Blue”, whilst the remainder of them donned afro wigs and 70s gear to perform the all-male Jacksons’ “I Want You Back.” And the results were pretty hilarious. As you might expect, real-life performers Ian (from Steps) and Jo (from S Club 7) came off best, as did Jermaine Jackson. Ian even seemed to remember some of his old Steps moves (I bet he can still do them in his sleep). Considering he’s an ex-Jackson, I thought Jermaine sung in rather a restrained way and had a slightly odd stage presence. Poor Shilpa was nervous as hell (admitting that she only lip synched in all those Bollywood movies rather than really singing). However she still gave it her best shot. Jack, Jade Goody’s beau, probably came off worst of the lot in the singing stakes. And the sight of Jade herself in a red bobbed wig and blue spacesuit was side-splitting. Moreover everyone seemed to thoroughly enjoy the experience and threw themselves into their performances. What a bunch of troupers!

At long last, a bit of humour and fun injected into the proceedings. More of the same soon, please.

Incidentally, I was wondering if the 70s afros as worn by the housemates were modelled on recently departed Leo Sayer’s hairdo?

    I swear to God I thought Jermaine was wearing Leo Sayer...

    At last, proof Jermain was and is not a tree.

    Ha ha ha - you could be right there Steve. Perhaps Jermaine is really Hannibal Lecter and was wearing Leo's skin. Uuuuggggh.

    Minge - a tree?! Is that a reference to his being static or something?

    Sure, a tree has more to say than Jermaine. I hope he comes out of his shell. He seems nice.

    Yes, he has a calmness and serenity about him which is commendable. He's a bit too quiet sometimes though.

    Yes, but I bet he's a tiger in bed. And he's massive downstairs.

    You could be right though.
