Well! Still residing in the city of lowculture's birth, Neil is probably best remembered for his unhealthy obsession with fit Big Brother contestants, and the overuse of asterisks*.
Neil will soon be creating a little low culture of his own, with an upcoming appearance in ropey Scottish game show Postcode Challenge.
Says Neil: "Happy birthday, lowculture! I have been trawling through the archives with a lump in my eye and a tear in my throat. My main regret is never tracking down Floella Benjamin for an interview. And for being such a lazy cunt*."

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.
