Gordon in the morning: He reads Facebook so you don't have to

How is Gordon keeping up with the latest developments in Amy Winehouse's confused and sad world?

Erm, by reading Facebook:

AMY WINEHOUSE has lost it with husband BLAKE FIELDER-CIVIL after learning he contacted “other woman” SOPHIE SCHANDORFF before getting in touch with her after leaving jail.

As I revealed on Saturday, model Sophie used her Facebook page to say she was “celebrating the return of her sailor”.

Isn't copying something off Facebook rather less than a revelation, what with, by definition, that information having already been published? You know, I can copy the news that Gordon has a puppy called Lord Fletcher ("what a character") off his Bebo page, but that hardly makes me Woodward. Or Bernstein.

Nice to see The Sun running prison shower rape gags, though:
Funny that — his soap-on-a-rope mates in prison are probably missing their little sailor too . . .

Thank god Rupert Murdoch is providing clean, family entertainment, offering an alternative to that sexcually-obsessed muck Brand and Ross churn out on the BBC, right?

More 'exclusive first listens' for Gordon today, as Coldplay give the world's softest critic a chance to lick them clean. They've made a new ep, and - you might not believe this - Gordon believes it's brilliant:
Their new Prospekt’s March EP, which I’m the only journalist on the planet to have heard, is their most wildly eclectic offering to date.

Thumping hip-hop jams, thundering metal workouts, Indian tablas and colliery brass bands all jostle for space on their brilliant, bold and, at times, bonkers eight-tracker.

Oh, Gordon, if only you had more than two thumbs to have permanently up when given these exclusives.

"...I'll be back next month with more great music reviews, plus I'll be revealing who the teachers' favourite bands are! Don't forget to enter my great Anagram competition to win a copy of Zoo magazine. Just unscramble the letters OSAIS to make the name of a band, then post your entries in the box outside the staffroom"
