Amazing things about July 21:
» The Sex Pistols made their Top of the Pops debut in 1977.
» July 21 is not a good day to stand anywhere near the vehicles of celebrities. In 1992, Michael Jackson's car ran over a policewoman's foot. And, in 1996, Terrorvision's tour bus trundled over a sleeping fan, breaking his hip.
» Kenny Everett was fired from Radio 1 for making rude remarks about a cabinet minister's wife on air.
» Not-very-ugly actor Josh Hartnett is 25 today. And actually-quite-ugly Terry from East 17 is 29. We're sure the redcoats at whatever Butlins he's playing at tonight will sing Happy Birthday and present him with a nice cake.
» Today marks the start of National Root Out Ragwort week. So root it out, whatever the fuck it is!

According to Marxist theory, cultural forms such as opera, classical music and the literary works of Shakespeare all fall under the heading of high culture. Low culture refers to a wide variety of cultural themes that are characterised by their consumption by the masses.
We might not be Marxists, but we do know we loved Footballers Wives. If you do too, you'll know what this is all about.
