No Gangnam Style Repeats in 2013

Psy’s Gangnam Style may be a one hit wonder, but its popularity isn’t tipped to be exceeded any time soon, with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au pricing $1.14 that no Youtube video will receive more hits in 2013.

After it became the most watched clip ever on Youtube this week, ‘yes’ has been priced as the outsider at $5.00.

And while it is the most viewed clip, it seems it will take a bit longer to reach the 1 billion viewers mark, priced at $1.45 to do so by 9am on the 30th December or later.

“If Psy has overtaken Justin Beiber on Youtube, honestly who else can stop him?” said sportsbet.com.au’s Shaun Anderson.

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach. I’ve been pretty negative about journalism as it’s practiced in the mainstream (or MSM, or corporate media or liberal media or whatever terminology you prefer) for quite some time (see for example Stop the Press), and I believe the current capitalist media model is destructive and can’t be reformed.

Not content with adhering to one particular style, he likes to adopt consciously unfashionable styles of painting, in a manner reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein. More>>
