So that’s it then!

Hold up! Before you read on, please read this...

This post was published more than 14 years ago

I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. Not everything that is old is bad. It can be interesting to see how views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured.

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might very well have changed in the 14 years since I wrote this post. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find pretty embarrassing today.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider highly inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Okay. Consider yourself duly warned. Read on...

Just under two years after Christopher Price’s tragic death, Liquid News has finally died. Just when Claudia and Paddy were beginning to make it all better again.

Still, the presenters’ and crews’ general displeasure at the axing was cheerily noticeable, with the “Liquid News Helpline” strap (“We haven’t got enough money left for a box of tissues, let alone a sodding helpline. Pull yourself together”), the redubbing of the Kill Bill clip to Kill Stuart (the BBC Three controller), and the “We really shouldn’t tell you this, but the money for the LA satellite feed ran out three weeks ago so all the ‘Latest’ news we’ve been bringing you from Hollywood over the last month was actually filmed in February”.

At least they went with dignity, dedicating the programme to Christopher and reshowing the tribute to him right after.

But that’s it. The end of Liquid. It makes me want to cry. And Christopher Price dying was a WHOLE lot more tragic than the Feeder drummer.

I’m off to sulk now (whilst also looking forward to the new extended 7 O’Clock News in May and, on a completely different topic, GMail. And if you’re expecting me to expand on either of those, you’re about to be disappointed. But please, for the sake of us all, keep your hamster away from the printer.
