    2018 FIFA World Cup

    Did anyone catch Evra being an absolute prick earlier on ITV? Patronisingly clapped Eni Aluko on co-punditry when it became clear that she had done her research and he'd done fuck all. "She's even better than us!" he said to the other bloke. Yeah, no shit mate.

    I'll tell you something I love about GB E3 coverage, the way Brad says 'wait' during an anticipation-building reveal of something as he gets excited. In a world of professional over reactors falling over themselves for attention on YouTube by jumping and screaming with excitement about a remake of a game they probably never fucking played (RE2) I love it.

    Yeah, Dan plays things up big style for entertainment purposes on Giantbomb and I'm not sure it would be different if he wasn't a white guy in terms of these comments, at least from actual fans. I do think there is a lot of stuff from his past that he puts down to luck or his charm that is actually just because he's a white bloke.

    Love Jeff's reaction to the Nintendo Direct.

    E3 2018: Xbox E3 Briefing

    Giantbomb saying that We Happy Few has had a pretty major rework and is much closer to what people were expecting from the original reveal. Think that ship maybe sailed.

    Sounds like this might be delayed for a bit as loads of journalists aren't in yet.

    Never have I felt as out of touch with the modern world as I did watching that Rock Reacts YouTube channel. Do people watch it because it looks like the two hot guys might kiss at any moment? Jon's a fantastic, hard working bloke and I wish him all the luck in the world but I've not a clue what the kids see in it.

    Parquet Courts - Wide Awake

    Yeah, this is a cracking album. They're such incredible songwriters. Finally got to see them live last year, supported by A Place to Bury Strangers. Fantastic gig, even if they were a little upstaged.

    Best New Music of 2018

    IDLES have a new track out. They continue to be utterly brutal and brilliant. Teasing a new EP or LP next week. Song contains multiple WWE references. edit: I can't stop listening to this. Not been this in love with a band for years. Streets ahead of every other British band for me.

    The awful skit at the start stops abruptly and from 25 minutes onwards it's a very good episode. They've got a bit too 'good' at doing these political drama bits now and it means they just come across as nasty. Still, we're about to get in to E3 season and TCGS does this better than anyone. Can't wait to hear how they fuck with Matt and his need to be involved all the time.

    Female-fronted alt/indie rock

    Handmade Festival at the weekend had some cracking female fronted bands, definitely the most I've seen at a festival. Some highlights not yet mentioned: Peaness - Same Place Findlay - Off & On. Bit high production value pop-rock but she was a hell of a performer.

    Frightened Rabbit - Scott Hutchison missing

    Big fan of Frightened Rabbit and seen them live a bunch of times. Have chatted to them a few times too and they all seemed like lovely guys, Scott has always been great at the between song chat and seems very relaxed on stage. Much like it did for everyone else, Midnight Organ Fight felt like a hugely personal album. Backwards Walk is me and my wife's song. Worried.

    I've got really bored over the years of the sexist assumption that if there is one female in a team of men then she must be having sex with one of them and it's just a question of who.
