RIP, TOTP

Well, that's one lifelong dream I'm never going to be able to acheive now. After 42 years, the BBC is pulling the plug on Top Of The Pops.

I'm going to go to my grave never even having had the chance to go on TOTP.

This makes me almost unspeakably sad. The end of an institution. The death of a dream.

a pointless waste. it's like cancelling the news. "Sorry, we're just not pulling in the numbers for THE NEWS anymore, time to cancel."
Idiots.
Of course this means I don't have to look at Fearne Cotton anymore, which is a small plus.

Aw, I like Fearne Cotton. I'd totally go gay for her.

OMG I forgot until now, there's a band about town called "Gay for Johhny Depp"!

You'd think the merchandising alone could have floated the revenue to keep it on air. Some marketing director was jerking off at the wheel.

I'm glad it's dead. It needed putting out of its misery for good.

I mean, this makes me cackle like a sick duck:

I looove fun, me. I'm not anhedonic just yet. However, I don't think TOTP was that much fun. Just loads of depressing music played by people I'd avoid if I saw them in the street.
