"Criticism should especially apply to the Arctic Monkeys – whose members have sheltered up to £1.1m in the Channel Islands – as they’ve long traded on their image as a band of the people, with Turner cast as a working-class hero, a snotty, sharp-minded northern kid in the mould of the young Lennon, cutting through the bullshit and telling it like it is. They could do with a reminder of just how much they owe to the state they’re so reluctant to fund. Singer Alex Turner may have ascended to the elite, dating models and living the high life, but taxation paid for the hospital where he was born, the school where he was educated and the schools which paid his (teacher) parents’ wages, the street lamps that lit his way home from rehearsals, and the benefits that sustained his bandmates when they were out of work.

[…] The temptation to snarkily quote lyrics has proven irresistible: “What a scummy man/ Just give him half a chance, I bet he’ll rob you if he can.” That song, of course, was a bleak piece of social realism about prostitution on the streets of Sheffield, a city in which the band exhibit a great deal of civic pride: they introduce themselves on stage as “The Arctic Monkeys, from High Green, Sheffield”, and the area telephone prefix 0114 is printed on Matt Helders’ drumhead. If they really cared about their hometown, they could always consider what that £1m could do for a city in which the number of people using food banks has almost doubled in the last 12 months, instead of leaving it to gather dust in Jersey."

Opinions vary as to whether you could call the Jesus and Mary Chain's show at the North London Poly a riot. For some, the sight of an audience storming the stage and smashing up the band's equipment after a typically short, chaotic set was “blood-in-their eyes destruction”. For others, it was a bit pathetic. Either way, nothing like it usually happened at indie gigs, thus cementing the Mary Chain’s reputation for controversy and fast-tracking them to mainstream attention.

So stoked about the Hobby Lobby ruling today. Officially going to incorporate myself so I can get a religious exemption for my student loans debt they violate my deeply held religious conviction that all debts are supposed to be forgiven every seven years, as per the book of Deuteronomy.
