Sunday blues
Hungover Sunday mornings were never the same when Popworld ended. Together, presenters Miquita Oliver and Simon Amstell cheered us up from the depths of our despair by meeting pop stars, annoying pop stars and ripping the p**s out of pop stars, to be quite honest. But where’s Miquita and her trademark sarcastic humour 11 years after she 
left the show?

Music in the blood
Miquita’s mum, Andrea Oliver, was a singer in 80s post-punk band Rip Rig + Panic alongside Neneh Cherry. So it’s quite fitting that Miquita went into the world of music telly. After attending Holland Park High School in West London, Miquita got the job on 
Popworld – at the tender age 
of 16. The show featured (and terrorised) pop stars from Britney Spears to Beenie Man and Gwen Stefani and was 
a weekend staple.

Moving on
Miquita and Simon left the show after five years in 2006, with Miquita revealing, ‘The thing about Popworld is it became such a luxury to be doing this great show every week, and to have people stop you in the street and say it’s good. You get really cosy. I was definitely getting too cosy. 
I would probably have done Popworld until I was 60.’ We wish you had, Miquita…

Frank Bartlett has been tortured, embarrassed, and humiliated by his brother Bruce -- usually on film -- his entire life. Now that Bruce is finally off drugs and has turned his life around, things should be different. They are not.

Slate may have declared 2014 “the year of outrage,” but if you thought online discourse would mellow from that point — well, you were wildly mistaken. Scarcely a month went by in 2015 without the christening of some new “most hated” person: whether “pharmabro” Martin Shrelki or cancer-faking blogger Belle Gibson. The people change, but the rage cycle remains pretty standard: indignant news coverage, petitions, a tidal wave of online shaming … and then — at last, eventually — nothing.

The Internet’s rages are passionate and deeply felt, but very quickly forgotten. Which is why, as the year wraps up, it seems important to recount them. Where are these people now? What changed, if anything? And does that tell us anything at all about how we should express ourselves and our grievances in a year that promises to be ripe for outrage?

Probably not, but: We can dream! Below, an admittedly subjective ranking of 15 figures that incited the Internet’s outrage in 2015 — and what happened to them since, if anything.

A shout out this week to Peter Cameron for the idea.  He didn’t put it on the Padlet so I can’t quote him directly – it came as a quickie direct message while he was playing “Ticket to Ride”.

Growing up, board games were a common event around the Peterson gaming table.  There was Mom, Dad and my younger brother.  Four appears to be the sweet spot for gaming.  Most games seem to be designed for two or four players and divisibility by two allows for even teaming.  It became apparent when we had three kids and someone often had to “sit out”!

I think we had copies of all of the classics.  They were stored in the hallway closet on the way downstairs.  We had the classics…
