BBC On Chart Rigger: "Big Jealous Club Of Ugly Geeks"

Goodness! BBC's Chart Blog, in its review of Shayne Ward's single "Breathless," gives more than a short mention of Chart Rigger. Oh, Mom! Oh, Dad! I've finally arrived! Upon watching the video for said Shayne ballad on Saturday, I felt it my Rigger-ly duty to alert the masses to its unfortunate blandness. Thankfully, the BBC heard the syren cry from across the vast ocean.

Let's see what flattering compliments the Beeb heaved upon D'luv:

Shayne fans aren't going to be won over by snarky critics, and snarky critics tend to form opinions in clumps anyway...
Pearls of wisdom, that. Never jump the snark, children.

...so even if I hate the song and, say, Chartrigger agrees with me, all it does is add fuel to the idea that we're just a great big jealous club of ugly geeks who wish we had a fraction of Shayne's raw sexual magnetism.
Splutter! But...ugly? Geek? You spelled the site as all one word? And...it...hurts...with...every...heartbeat.

Well, I can't speak for anyone else (Chartrigger seems to be quite the hottie-magnet though), but what I do know is this: It's my turn to review the new Shayne Ward single.

Well when you put it that way, who can argue? Thanks, Fraser! The geeks shall inherit.

    Is the BBC Blog written by that guy you ditched in a Santa Monica parking garage after an especially bad blind date in the summer of 2000? Because that's the only legit reason for someone trying to flame you like that.

    Or maybe the boy likes Jojo. (The boy IS Jojo?)

    Either way, he totally wants to be your friend but is too shy to approach you, so he figures it's more effective to diss you to some mutual friends and see if you react. You should totally send him a note asking him to put a check mark next to Yes or No underneath the question, "Do you like me?"

    Ha Ha... well, I think he was actually being self-deprecating and funny, which I'm all for. Besides, I'd cry if it wasn't all true :P

    When it's one word, it looks like Char Trigger. Isn't that what RuPaul called her manbits she saved in a jar post-op???

    How many times do I have to tell you:

    Watch the videos with the sound OFF and play the CD with the volume OFF (just prop the jewel case in front of yourself and get out the Wet).
