A KICK IN THE FUR BALLS

It's one thing for man to make life incredibly hard for the polar bear but it takes the (penguin) biscuit to exploit the creature for an advert for the canary islands tourist board

Watch and feel the bile rise - because we are all going to hell people, we are all going to hell


HOW CLEAN IS YOUR HOUSE?



Have you seen this show? Its a very entertaining look at depression and mental illness framed by two cartoon women who jolly along amongst the personal detritus of the distressed and disenfranchised. Really great. Yeah. Just great.  Brilliant.

THE NEWS

Tragedy strikes in Cumbria as events are too sad to laugh when saying "Cockermouth"

THANK GOD FOR SIGNS

BECAUSE IF IT WASN'T THERE I JUST WOULD HAVE. I JUST WOULD HAVE. I JUST WOULD


DR HUNGER CAFE

Every since moving south I have become fascinated by odd business names which I see  as the result of someone whose first language is not English, trying to exploit UK commercial marketing semantics that even the natives find baffling.  See here and here 

So, “Dr Hunger Café”; as in a café owned by a Doctor who cures hunger?  Maybe, but then It should read “Dr. Hunger’s Café”.


Is café a coincidentally apt second name for a physician who jacked it in to fry eggs for a living?


Or should it be read with an assumed “the” prefix. “The Dr. Hunger café” is maybe then, a set of ideas.  At the heart of which the concept of “Hunger” is given an authority by bestowing it a doctorate. Is this art? What is this?


And then I noticed I had photo-shopped a little picture of Jude Law in the wing mirror, something I have very little memory of doing.  

LIPSTICK ON YOUR COLLAR

They are showing it again  - can't help watch it without thinking of an interview he did with Bragg 


It really affected me at the time. I promised myself i would find out more about pennies from heaven and singing detective - never got round to it...

TORN MOTHS


What moth is this? We have them kicking about the house.  They look broken. Their wings look torn. Hmm

PHIL JUPITUS

He twittered my Comedy store video and loads of folk went and watched it.

Isn't that modern? Isn't that nice?

What's even stranger is that night we went to the pub and he was sat there, in the corner.

I'm a fan of Coincidence, and Phill Jupitus so went over and said thanks.

What a nice day.

OLD BLOGS

I just read a whole ream of writing i did in 2004. Very odd. Quite aggressive but very creative. Exciting to read and also a bit depressing because i don't really write like that anymore. My stuff now does tend to be tempered with the thoughts of "well, why bother - no one's going to let you have an elephant in a sitcom." Shame really.

On the plus side, my room is tidier...
