"I see paint-cracked walls stained with shite. Long long lock-up days, cold lonely nights. And I think to myself... what a wonderful world." Pete Doherty's prison diary.

Hey Pete

Pete = Peter Sellers = Cell, right? Or is there a different Pete he's referring to? Cockney rhyming slang seems like too much trouble most of the time.

Also, I do like the word fuckery, but I have to say this is the first I've ever heard of a band called Babyshambles.

I sentence him to be taken from this place and to serve 60 years of being a pretentious, miserable, whiny, blithering self-absorbed git. Sentence to commence at once.

Fuck Pete Doherty. The man's a cunt, an attention-seeking faker who's rightly been smacked down for thinking he can flaunt his idiotic levels of smack/crack use all over the papers. Same goes for his erstwhile girlfriend/enabler.

And, oh yes, he has no talent.

I didn't know Carl did ads for Rimmel.

You're all envious, admit it.

Sure, I'm a bit envious. I stand by what I said, though.

The London magistrate's blog "the law west of Ealing Broadway" had a brief entry pointing out that his sentence was quite typical, and in accordance with UK guidelines.

In spite of his bitching about an "unsympathetic magistrate", and tabloids bitching about him "walking free", he seems to have a got a perfectly fair deal, just the same as a non-celebrity would get.

Pete = Peter Sellers = Cell, right?

It is a cell, but I've always assumed that the expression derives from the use of the term as burglar's slang for a safe, which long predates Peter Sellers.

Drug users get a lot of leeway in the British courts, but they'll only let you take the piss for so long before eventually you get sent down the stairs with the rest of the piss-takers.

"Doherty, however, claims that their separation involved other issues, telling the London Sun newspaper that Moss left him because, “I can’t buy her diamonds and my dick is too small.”"

He's not a pretentious talentless git. He's not. He's extraordinarily fucked up, and he's fallen stupidly hard for some model of art and drugs and the road of excess and all that, but he's not talentless.

^^ I should have said, "some model of being an artist". Seeing as he's, like, fallen for some model already.

Oh, and amarynth-- heh.

The Libertines were a great band. What a waste.

I can't think of a single reason I would want to read this. I hope never to hear of Pete Doherty again.

This reads like the poor lad's been watching Mary Poppins for a while before getting banged up and was taking notes on Bert's accent. 'Cor blimey, Pete, being banged-up's a right 2 n' 8, eh guvnor? Why, I'll wager a bloke can't get a night's kip chim-chiminey!

"I can’t buy her diamonds and my dick is too small."
I can see a guy admitting to the first, but the latter? In an interview? The poor guy's got serious self-worth issues...

Wow! Will this guy o.d. already?

It's quite sad that he's now more famous for taking drugs than his music...
posted by djgh at 8:36 PM on February 11, 2006


He's addicted to drugs and they've thrown him in prison for it. How wonderfully progressive! Would you people stop being so bloody judgemental for a minute and start acting like human beings - it may surprise you to learn that he's one too.

Apparently Him and Kate are back together - which is a profound disapointment for those of us who were hoping that she would roll up outside our front doors someday.

perhaps 'roll up' isn't exactly the right phrase.......

He's addicted to drugs and they've thrown him in prison for it.

He got 12 months community service, after spending 13 nights on remand, so 'they've' actually let him out of prison. How wonderfully progressive!

Wow! Will this guy o.d. already?

Seconded.

sgt.serenity - I have had what some might call the good fortune to speak to Ms. Moss and I'd like to point out that she's as thick as pigshit. Given the chance of a relationship with her I freely admit that I would rather be filling my body with mind-numbing drugs rather than actually attempt to engage her in a conversation lasting longer than five minutes.

And she looks like a boy from behind.
