Am I the only one who remembers this great television programme from the mid-1990s? This is Timothy Stack as Dick Dietrick in the fake chat show Nightstand. This was a forerunner of Jeremy Kyle and was aimed as a spoof version of Jerry Springer. One of the guests on this show was actually shot dead.

Sorry, I just can’t help it. I played this in the car the other day and I have been walking around singing it ever since. It is one of those songs that when you hear it you don’t think much of it but then find yourself singing it for the rest of the day. Next thing you know you love the song and play it over and over.

If there is one man who should stick to what he does best then it is Kevin Smith. I love the guy, I love most of his movies – but man does he produce some shit along with the gems. The guy is capable of some great movies along the lines of Clerks, Dogma, Chasing Amy, Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back and Clerks II. He can make some watchable movies like Mallrats and Zack & Miri Make a Porno. However, this is the man also responsible for Jersey Girl and the lamest of them all Cop Out with Bruce Willis.
