So a couple of clips to take into the weekend, starting with the first "proper" single from last year's X Factor winner, Joe McElderry, who a couple of months ago became the youngest British pop star ever to come out publicly. I won't go into the rather odd phrasing he used at the time, which suggested he hadn't realised he was gay until someone else told him, and focus on the fact that (once you've got over his opening note) the song's unexpectedly good. It's a cover of a song by Norwegian group Donkeyboy, a fact which has caused a weird amount of comments - apparently nobody can figure out why a group not known in this country wouldn't just attempt to release the song themselves, instead of allowing the winner of the country's most popular talent show to release it and make them a shedload of royalties. Truly a mystery.

Anyway I'm quite pleased for ickle Joe going in an unexpected direction instead of releasing loads of granny-pleasing ballads as expected. Maybe someone's finally learned the lesson that the grannies who vote on The X Factor don't actually buy records when the show's over. And it's also a bit awesome that he's going for a style that doesn't exactly shy away from the whole gay thing. Or I might just be saying that because of the final shot of him walking away from camera. No, really, if nobody had helpfully let him know he was batting for our team, he could have just watched the video and figured it out for himself:



The other clip this week is of course the full trailer for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1.



All very exciting but this is the image I was most interested in:

I didn't realise Kate Fleetwood was in it! She's probably only in the film for the same amount of milliseconds as in the trailer, but it still counts, meaning I have acted with someone from Harry Potter. Which in turn means I'm awesome. Yes, the point is totally about me. That, ladies and gentlemen, is how logic works.

You *are* awesome. :)

Well, yes, obviously. But it's good to have extra proof now and then.

True.

The guy in the first video is cute (of course, if you like him, it's no surprise I think he's cute too).

As to your awesomeness, surely having acted with one of the stars personally will get you into the premiere, right? And she can introduce you to another of the stars, and you can introduce him to me . . .

I think he's adorable, although I don't particularly find him cute in *that* way...

Unfortunately the play we were in together was 16 years ago and I've not seen her since. She's married to the hottest theatre director in the country so believe me, if I could have used her as a contact I would have done so ages ago LOL.

Well, no, because you have to save yourself for RT after all. But then it is possible to find a guy attractive and still not think of him in *that* way. (I liked the music, too ... didn't mention that earlier)

You did realise I was only joking about that, didn't you?

I know you were joking, but whether I was is a different story...

Let's hope he stays away from Snappy Snaps then.
