Birmingham Boulevard

It was recently reported in the news that Birmingham is to get it’s very own equivalent to Hollywood Boulevard’s “Walk of Fame”, with Ozzy Osbourne to be the first star. Ozzy’s an obvious choice, but who else? Well now you can help decide! The Brum Blog has reported a link to the Birmingham Walk of Stars website, where you can cast your vote!

How about Sutton Coldfieldian Natalie Powers, one of the band members from this year’s craptastic Eurovision entry Scooch (“we’re flyyyyyyyying the flag!” *groan*)?

Vote Birmingham!

As today is the day we all vote in our local elections I think we should all take a moment to also vote to put Birmingham on the new Monopoly board! At the time of writing Birmingham has 1777 votes, putting it in 33rd place! Coventry has 886 (49th), Wolverhampton has 684 (55th), and Litchfield has 268 (79th). First place (currently Baronville with 6807) isn’t that far off! Wait a second… Baronville?!?

Worshipping The Bull?

It appears that Brum has it’s own flash mob! I was wandering through town at lunch time today when I heard a whistle. At that point a group of people dropped to the ground around the big bronze bull statue and started chanting. This continued for a couple of minutes until someone blew the whistle again and the group dispersed among the crowed. After having a quick look on YouTube it appears that someone managed to record the event. The “related” clips on the side link to other Birmingham flashmob events:
