• People of Bristol, what are you doing this Sunday? That’s right, you are going to the Independent Label Market at St Nicholas Market. I’m glad I didn’t have to remind you. If you could pick me up the single vinyl copy of Amon Tobin’s ‘Dark Jovian’ EP, that would be great. Thanks.

• Justin Bieber is apparently going to have a cameo in this new ‘Zoolander’ movie. I’d imagine he got the part on account of him being such a great person now.
