Random reflections on culture, life and the Universe.

Of course, another angle for a semiotic analysis would be to compare representations of Rooney with representations of Beckham at the same age. Clearly the difference would be so massive (so massive in fact I might be compelled to pronounce it 'ma-who-sive') - and whether you could argue this had any correlation to dominant ideas of changing British/English masculinities. Interesting...God, it's 8:47am and I'm already wondering about shit like this. I need a life...
As Germaine Greer once said about Rooney, 'That boy's got a face like a fist!'Beckham did do Christ photos — there was a cover for Time Out, around the last World Cup I think — but I seem to remember they were a bit less, umm, full-blooded than the Bleedin' Rooney pics.
