The rise and rise of ticket prices

Contrary to what certain musicians, tour operators or record label execs will have you believe, the cost of concert tickets is most definitely rising, and rising at a rate that far outstrips the natural economic increases that control our economy. Paying above the market value for anything is never a nice experience; it can...

Remake the remake – films continue to be harvested

“Have you seen…’insert any film title here’?” “Do you mean the original or the remake?” Everybody has had this conversation and sadly in the years to come you are going to have it every-time you talk to anybody about your favourite film, or indeed, any film. Such is the appetite of film producers to...

David Li, a 32 year old billionaire from Shanghai who made his fortune when he sold his Internet company last year, visited the Na-pa Valley in California to buy some wine for his Sunday dinner last week. Obviously being a billionaire, money is not an object and seeing as though he already has over...

The World’s Stupidiest Names revealed

Frank Zapper certainly started something when he called his child Moon Unit. Whatever lysergic derivative flowing through his head at that time perhaps influenced his decision, what it didn’t do was cause the rush of blood to the countless others who have followed in his wake. Taketheblame would like to apologise to all the...

Russia Blames America for state of the world economic markets shock

America and Russia have long been at loggerheads with each other, nothing new there. Every now and again their huge political and PR juggernauts try and convince a skeptical world that their relationship is not how it used to be, that the Cold War is a distant memory and political channels are clearer than...

The Beegees Have sold 50 billion albums. We take the blame for this sordid musical taste.

The Beegees Have sold 50 billion albums. We take the blame for this sordid musical taste.

A not so interesting fact is that the Bee Gees have sold over 220 million records. Probably down right scary rather than interesting you would have to admit. That’s a lot of sales and equates to 1 in every 3 people you meet owning at least one album. Maybe Living Eyes from 1981 or...

The BBC continues its ineptitude by losing 36 million pounds?

In the scheme of things I suppose that 36 million is not a great deal of money. A small bonus to a wealthy banker, an average footballer. You probably couldn’t get hold of a decent powerboat for that so for the BBC to go 36 million pounds over budget isn’t such a big deal...

Japanese man finds woman in his cupboard after 3 months.

It is often said that ignorance is bliss, and maybe it is. If I found out my wife was having an affair, my business employees were in fact Russian militants designing a new wave of carpet bombs and that my dog was in fact a rare type of jungle ebola carrying sloth, I would...

Shark attacks in Mexican resort of Zihuatanejo. Sharks are not to blame, says shark.

People being eaten by sharks is never a good thing, some would say it isn’t even a funny thing. But sharks have to eat too. They don’t have  the luxury of choice, they don’t go on diets, they eat what they see and invariably don’t see what they eat. Sometimes they even eat human...
