Religious zealots are always claiming something or other is the devil's handiwork so I tend to ignore most of their rants.

Even my usually better half refuses to watch Superbowl half-time shows because someone at her local church has convinced here they are Satanic rituals – sigh.

Has anyone read the Lennon Prophecies? It is an absolute disgrace and claims that John Lennon sold his soul to the devil in 1960, they made a 20 year pact which expired in 1980, hence John's death. I mainly read it for a laugh because I couldn't believe someone would write a book about something so ludicrous and have to admit it was fairly entertaning (in a it's so bad it's good kinda way). I'm not sure I even believe in the Devil (i'm an agnostic, leaning towards the atheist) so he wasn't going to convince me from the get go. On Youtube there's an american radio programme which dedicates 90 minutes to the book and has the author (can't even be bothered to remember his name) as a guest. I expected the radio interveiwer to rip his theory to threads, but instead he actually entertains the idea and puts it out there as a possiblity! Has anyone heard this? I think what annoys me most is the fact that people with religious views, who may believe that such a thing as a pact with the devil exists, may believe it and imagine that John Lennon is in hell. For me, it's ridiculous as I don't really believe in hell, but for them it may be easier to believe. So basically this author is saying that John Lennon, hero to millions (including many religious people) is burning in hell! And he bases it on what? Hard evidence? A signed confession? No, pure speculation from someone with too much time on his hands.

Phew, I feel better for that rant!

I refuse to watch Super Bowl halftime shows because honestly, I could care less who performs at halftime. (And yes, I realize Paul performed the gig a few years back, but he did it at the Super Bowl the Eagles- the football team, not the band- were in, and they're my team, so I couldn't enjoy it like I would have under normal circumstances. I still have nightmares of that game…) Speaking of Super Bowl halftime shows, it's Bruno Mars' gig this year. If that ain't the sign of the devil… where's SatanHimself when we need him? a-hard-days-night-george-10

The halftime performances are a great time to go to the bathroom, make yourself a cup of tea and a snack, get some fresh air by walking the dog and get your body into life again before the game restarts. Cant even remember who performed at last years.

And is Bruno Mars the guy who whined the appalling Grenade with truly dire lyrics about happily getting blown up for a woman? I aint googling as the song is so insulting to my being.

Beyonce performed last year. You didn't miss anything.

And not being up on Bruno Mars at all, I couldn't tell you. I don't listen to Top 40 anymore (and with my job, I couldn't anyway), and I don't feel like I'm missing anything.

So it was Beyoncé. I know who she is but find her music to be annoying as well, all that nonsense about being a boy and having a haloa-hard-days-night-ringo-14 - most modern music I find annoying.a-hard-days-night-ringo-13

All I remember of last years half time is the whistle, hooter or whatever it is in American Football, going, putting mute on the tv and doing some stuff.

Like George said in AHDN, "They're good for a giggle." We have the same religious zealots in America, though they aren't about like they used to be. They've bigger devils to chase now, I suppose.

Welcome IHeartScousers! Love the George quote! Yes, I suppose it's fine as long as no one takes it seriously

I must also admit I have no idea who Bruno Mars is – makes me feel the way my dad must have felt when I wasn't 'into' Acker Bilk.

I did a quick search and yes it is Bruno Mars who sang Grenade (repeat warning: the song is way beyond shit, I paused youtube very quickly not to hear it) and if you don't want to listen to it here are the offending lyrics.

^ Think I've heard that song (just read the lyrics, didn't want to risk listening to it). Is that what love songs have got to now? Actually, scratch that, is that what music in general has got to now? I'm dumbfounded once again.

Looking at the lyrics, I saw that one of the writers was Jeff Tweedy of Wilco. Turns out, Bruno sampled a Tweedy song, "I'll Fight." Didn't know Bruno had an interest in Wilco (or someone associated with him did).
