Boy George faces a jail term for falsely imprisoning a male escort.
He was told in court today that a prison sentence was 'the most likely option' after a jury convicted him of handcuffing Norwegian Audun Carlsen to a wall at his flat.
The singer, 46, whose real name is George O'Dowd, also beat Carlsen, 29, with a metal chain as he tried to escape from the flat in Shoreditch, East London after a kinky photographic session, Snaresbrook Crown Court heard.
Mr Carlsen fled in his underpants and alerted police.
These are sad times. I mean if celebrities can't keep people chained up in their bedrooms who can?
Amazon.com has taken the PC kool-aide and is attempting to hawk its products under the banner of The 12 days of Holiday. Sadly since I don't know which holiday they are talking about I find it difficult to catch the "holiday spirit" and order lots of goodies from their website.
This is the email I sent them:
This email is to complain about your incredibly stupid "12 days of Holiday" campaign. Which holiday would that be? Why are you so afraid to say Christmas? I LOVE Amazon but this stuff really pisses me off.
I'll tell you what, I'm not going to shop at Amazon after October 31st of each year. I mean If there were a major gift giving holiday toward the end of the year you'd remind me of it right? When you you do, I'll shop on your site.
The great thing about the web is that it gives you choices. The truth is I don't need Amazon this Christmas season.
