Inbox Me by Matthew Stuart Derbyshire No-one cares if Justin Bieber is better then One Direction! No-one cares if One Direction are fitter then Justin Bieber! But the girls wont stop their silly arguments about them. No-one cares if you're a 1D fan or if your a Belieber. And the same goes for the Black Veil Brides fans. All of these arguments are never-ending. I'm annoyed by all these tweets about bands. How did #cutforbieber ever start trending? A teenager is posting all about how much she hates her mother. Her mum's a friend on her first account, but she's secretly using another. She declares her love for her boyfriend; how much she wants to hold him tight. She says their love is never going to end. (They've only been going out for a fortnight.) People are sharing photos they've found on funny sites. Most of them are pretty much porno, but everyone does it so it's all right. Hot girls fill your friend requests. (You don't even know who they are.) Someone's posting a gay test. Arguments are going too far. Everyone is always bored; they want someone to inbox them. People “like for a rate” in hoards. Girls are complaining about men. There are 9 year olds kicking off; they're thinking they're “well 'ard”. A tweet appears along the lines of “How fit is Conner Maynard?”

Hi Matthew. Good to meet you at the Tudor last night. Have you run across the poetry of Gerard Manley Hopkins? I think you might like it. Pied Beauty may be a good place to start.
