Enjoy the next three and a half decades, Ian Watkins

This generally isn't a blog for criticising things. In the five years I've been running it, I've made only a handful of posts that are critical of anyone or anything. Having said that, Ian Watkins of Lostprophets, you are a massive cunt. Massive massive massive cunty cunty cunt cunt cunt. An instrument does not exist at present to measure how much of a despicable, detestable, execrable piece of rancid scum you are.
