And now with ebay's new bad boy image we can trade there for a profit!

Sniffy said...

Yeah, an ebay rebel!

Fantastic idea, but could it be expanded to include all British serial killers? Of course, numero uno is good old Harold Shipman - I bet he'd be worth a few quid on ebay.

Nobody Special said...

Brilliant! Your best so far.

Convict said...

Oooh goody. Nilsen, West, Shipman, Hindley ... did Sutcliffe murder or just rape? Are you doing just UK or are you going to make them global?

weenie said...

This is in such poor taste...yet I can't stop laughing! Think I need therapy...

Herge Smith said...

ebay is by no means 'a bad boy' - one word from that gobshite, knowitall Geldof, and they buckled super fast.

Honestly, Live:8 - what a load of shit - if the top 10 acts had a whip road they could raise enough money to end all world debt/ poverty etc...

Wankers.

Tina/ Convict - this is currently on ly a pack of Child Murderers, although some do fall into the catergory of serial killer, we won't be including anyone who focused purely on adults.

That's not to say there won't be a pack of serial killers in the future...

Weenie - you are all sick - what's wrong with you people, does nothing shock you!?!

what kind of world did i just wander into?

pissoff said...

I thought the English were too proper for things like murder/rape. Fuck, Herge won't even show us a nipple?

However, having said that, very impressive Herge.

Herge Smith said...

Crystalpistol, hang on, you ain't seen nothing yet - but whilst you're here, why not pop by our resident annoying git And ask him a question?

April, my darling, the english invented rape/ murder, along with concentration camps and cricket.

Don't worry folks, the cover and more child murderers will be with you soon...

Rowan said...

Seriously, your funniest yet, it was just a matter of time before you moved on to something so globally amusing.

Lisa from Alaska said...

Sorry, not funny. Sick and twisted. But still high marks as always for braining us with the bizarre.

April, don't listen to him, he's just trying to sound tough... and while the US didn't invent rapes and murders, we're think about changing it to our national pastime. Baseball was just too boring. We're positively murder free when conpaired to Columbia, though. That and a whole lotta Africa.

Herge Smith said...

Hurrah, finally a word of sanity from Lisa.

Sadly, this is just a reflection of a society that has turned murder into a palour game, to be discussed, read about and watched endlessly on TV. No crime is heinous enough...

This is the natural conclusion as I see it. Maybe not today, or next year, but it will happen.

Lisa from Alaska said...

That's how I feel about your take on reality TV shows. I honestly think it's just a matter of time before people start killing and maiming themselves and others for a few dollars and some fame.

I think it is sad that people are so desensitized by crime and death. I try really hard to shelter my son from as much of it as possible because I want him to cry when he sees a dead body or a violent crime on TV, not shrug his shoulders and say "oh well."

While we were on vacation in Mexico my husband came across a high speed chase being televised on the news. He sat there and watched the whole thing, which took hours. We should have been down on the beach but instead he was glued to the TV. In the end the "bad guy" in the car stopped, got out, and was promptly shot 6 times and killed by police officers. Since it was "live" the close-up of this man being shot repeatedly was shown. After the inital viewing, the news channels started showing the same ending over and over again, but from more of a wide angle so that you'd see the man's body jump and then fall down, but you wouldn't see the blood splatter or the look on his face when he knew it was the end.

I was appalled. My husband laughed gleefully and clapped his hands like a child at his birthday party.

Maybe I'm overly sensitive. Then again, maybe if more people were as sensitive as I am, we wouldn't have nearly the murders that we have.

Herge Smith said...

Lisa - we are all going to hell.

Not that I believe in Hell, but I often wonder where it will end, perhaps it'll end with a mass swing from the right to curb this kinda stuff... moral values and all that.

Trouble is, that just breeds repression, which is insidious in it's own right.

See, I'm a bleeding heart liberal, I think we shouldn't have censorship but have enough maturity to self censor - problem is, no fucker can do it. (well very few).

It's so weird that your hubby can sit through that, allowed to by the media and a live news feed, but no one will show dead marines or Iraqs, for fear of upsetting us - it's so mixed up.

We shouldn't accept the fact that reality TV swamps us, as does sex, swearing and domestic violence - but the news is watered down and censored by networks and their links to government - SHOW IT LIKE IT IS!

Perhaps then we wouldn't be so naive and moronic as a society - if we knew what WAR really looked like, what famine really looks like, not just the occasional glimpse but proper in your face reality.

Problem is I reckon that'd be just another product for people to enjoy.

It's Famine Challenege LIVE, or Charity Worker extreme close up. etc etc...

Lisa from Alaska said...

Interesting thoughts, Herge. I had a near identical conversation with my mother once, and she said that she (and many other's in her age group) felt that the country lost it's innocence because for the first time, news agencies were showing dead bodies on TV from the Vietnam war. It was like they had opened the floodgates. I don't know if this is truly the case or not, but I wonder about it. It also seems like, even in my life time, news has changed from being a statement of fact to being entertainment, as evident by news channels "reporting" who got voted off American Idol or Survivor on a daily/weekly basis. To show death or violent acts on a news channel that also reports on Reality TV shows could easily make dead bodies and the reality of war seem like just another form of entertainment.

Lisa from Alaska said...

For the record I too believe that people should be allowed to see/view whatever they want on TV and then also exercise the same freedom to turn the TV of or change the channel to avoind seeing the things they don't.

The problem is that a whole lot of people just don't seem affected by war or crimes against humanity. I've often wondered why that is and I think, in part, it's because of the helplessness factor. It is easy for people to think that there is nothing that they can do about a situation that looms so large. For example, what can I do to end the war in Iraq? Essentially, nothing. My president is running that show and he is hell-bent on being in a war (if it wasn't Iraq then it'd be N. Korea, or possibly N. Ireland). I tried to do my part by voting against him, but that didn't work. I can write letters to my Representatives, but they are all Republican and have vowed to support the President.

Do you see what I mean? I still care about the war, deeply. But it becomes easy to see how people might just ignore it an deal with the more pressing issues of their daily lives.

Herge Smith said...

Lisa - 100% right about your news coverage - it's terrible - I think the print media is still good, just TV - trouble is in a 24hr society that's where everyone is headed.

As for what to do - write about what you think - connect with other people - yeah I know, what's the point?

We had that here recently - a general election in which loads of us were fucked off with the government but with no real alternative stepping up. When that happens, you're fucked.

As for TV, you can do something - switch off, or just be more selective.

You guys have some amazing TV shows at the moment so it's not like there isn't anything on...

Just don't watch that reality shit. It's like poison.

Lisa from Alaska said...

I never watch reality TV(okay, except for America's Next Top Model) and I find it offense that they attach the word "Reality" to that kind of nonsense.

I actually prefer to do rather homey things with my down time. I read a lot, bake, sew, woder around on our beach with my son etc.

Lisa from Alaska said...

Have you read the Running Man by Stephen King? He originally wrote it under a pseudonym and apparently it was turned into a really bad movie with Arnold Schwarzenegger (I know this because everytime I mention the book someone says, "hey, wasn't that a movie with...") but the book itself was very interesting. It was sent in the future and how the only thing people watch is Reality TV only now the contestants get maimed and killed. I read it about 9 or 10 years ago, and even then I thought, "People are going to look back at this book and be shocked at how close it came to telling the future."

Herge Smith said...

I have actually, I liked it.

What I'm doing isn't in the least bit orginal, I just like doing posters and writing stupid explanations of shows.

Actually the poster designs are what drive me, I find I need to write the text to justify spending hours in photoshop dicking around.

Are you a graphic artist by trade, or is this a hobby for you?
