I appreciate that this may initially come over as a bit daft, but I'm pretty serious about this one. As far as I'm concerned, the fact that Inky hasn't yet been given mod status is a serious oversight. So I'm opening the polls: Should Inky become a moderator?

When making your decision, please bear in mind that he's been here for a long time and he's always been welcoming and friendly to all-comers, has been very generous with his music collection and has always been a beacon of rationality and good humour. A better mod there is not, and I'm including myself in that.

If, by the end of November, there's a majority yes decision, then I'll personally lobby Mata for this to happen. And by that I mean I'll badger the poor bloke incessantly until he caves in biggrin.gif

Please cast your vote now. And if you have any comments to support your vote (good or bad) then please post them.

Inky, what you're suffering from here is a classic case of music taste ambivalence: You like the music, but you don't want to incur the wrath of the music literati. I can completely understand this. You're still young enough to have certain tastes in recorded music and appear all edgy and cool without anyone going "Ah, but you've only heard of them because you've got a 15 year old daughter." Which in my case, whilst correct on the offspring front, is factually wrong as she listens to some right dross.

Anyway, I can put your mind at ease. The music literati, the ones who say what's cool and what's not, are basically a bunch of tossers who have nothing better to do than decry any act that is even reasonably successful to be a corporate whore. You don't want to be associated with them. REAL appreciation of music means to take any form, be it Urusei Yatsura, Girls Aloud or even Cliff Richards, and appreciate it for it's good qualities. For example, Barry Manilow isn't cool, but I defy anyone not to be tapping toes to "Copacabana".

You, sir, are more cool than the literati purely because you CAN admit you like differing musical styles and appreciate them for what they are. Don't be ashamed of it. Embrace it warmly, knowing it makes you a better person to not dismiss it out of hand just because it's considered uncool to like Girls Aloud.

And if it's any consolation at all (and I'm sure it won't be), I like "Something Kinda Ooh". I always find myself breaking speed limits when that comes on the radio.

But I have to draw the line at Nicola. Sorry, but she's neither that pale nor that redheaded. Her eyes are too far apart as well. That said, she's the only one of the quintet that can actually sing, so it's not all bad.
