The Finnish-school killer that left 8 people dead was apparently wearing a T-shirt that read:


At what point, does an 18-year old get into this state of utter deception? How does one get into this frame of fear and hate?


In today's digital satellite world, it seems like we are not getting newer channels, what we have are new extentions of our favourite channels. Flicking through Sky these days is as mundane as Martha Stewart, you have some shows been broadcasted more than thrice in a day.

How is this done? Take for instance Ugly Betty.

The new series was premiered on E4, then re-premiered (for non-satellite viewers) on Channel 4. If you missed that slot, you could catch up on Channel 4 + 1, if you were really impatient, you could watch ahead in the series on More 4 which also has an extention, More 4 + 1.

This is a growing trend amongst all TV giants, BBC, ITV, Channel 5 and we can't forget the genre-specific MTV extentions.

Which makes us ask the question: Are these extentions for the viewers benefit? or Is this just a brilliant way to generate advertising revenue like never before?

Let's Marinade on that for a second!


When I was much younger, I wanted a tattoo of a cross on my left arm just like DMX. At the time (believe it or not) I thought I was a Ruff Ryder. I bought the clothes, the CD and even saw Eve in concert (Oh yes!!!)

Today, I don't quite feel the same about the idea of having often 'meaningless' symbols and writings scribbled all over my slim-frame. I thought perhaps tattoos look better on a certain type of frame. Maybe if I was packing the heat - perhaps it might look good on me too.

Many people can't seem to identify exactly why they like/have tattoos. At Renaissance Man, we are looking for comments. opinions on why their is a phenomeon called body tattooing and why it is very unlikely that it will fade for generations to come.

We want to hear from you.


Did anyone watch Saturday Night Divas on ITV2 on Saturday?

If you didn't, good for you! Despite the cheap TV set and production and everything generally mediocre, nothing could have prepared us for the shocking performance by Jamelia - a rendition of Outkast's Hey Ya.

Words could not describe the shock of our faces as we cringed all through the 3mins and 40secs of the modern classic. This performances was so karaoke that my nephew (whom on a good day loves the song) stood static as if his favourite pokemon had been assaulted.

It was just BAD and we like Jamelia, we really do!
