Welcome to our Broadcast section. Think of this area as a rolling stream of consciousness, a flow of aural and visual information beamed direct from the Cable office.
It's that time of year again where all the singletons whine about the the couples on Facebook and Twitter and in the streets and restaurants and so on and so forth. Meanwhile, all the couples are whining about the lack of thought or preparation or romantic gestures from their partners. There's probably about 1% of people world-wide who actually enjoy this day, and even then they're probably paying for it.

But let's not dwell on the negatives. This is a day of love and romance and happiness and love. It also gives our economy a wee (and much needed) boost in any direction other than down and, if you're a cynic, it provides amusement via the failings of others happiness. So to summerise, Valentines day is about laughing at others and economics. So why is it such a big deal?

Well, we all know why we celebrate this day, don't we? In case you aren't aware, St. Valentine was a bit of a man of the people, and way back in the Roman times when soldiers couldn't legally get married, on the 14th February every year he would break the law and secretly wed these man to their sweethearts. As with all good things, one of the higher-ups found out and put him to death. Before he was executed he wrote a letter to his daughter and signed it with 'From your Valentine'. Bloody lovely.

If you do manage to have a nice Valentines day, well done you! You're definitely in the minority. Now enjoy this truly terrible piece of 'artwork' by a 12 year old emo.
