    Glastonbury 2010

    Not really. The last two dismal weather years I camped near Pedestrian Gate A and had an easy time of it.

    Do such campsites become hellish if its a bad year weather-wise?

    Glastonbury 2010

    See, I learned whilst bored out of my mind during sets by Paul McCartney and Bruce Springsteen not to see acts because I feel I should. After an hour of Springsteen last year I hot-footed it over to the Park to see Bon Iver. Now that was magical, second only to Blur across the whole of the weekend.

    Glastonbury 2010

    It's a solid line-up. Friday and Saturday great, Sunday lacking anything very worthwhile. My initial plans are to see U2, Chase & Status, Mumford & Sons or Zane Lowe, Snoop Dogg, Kele, Courteeners, Gaslight Anthem, Muse, Editors or Laura Marling, Cribs, The National, Giggs, Detroit Social Club, Frank Turner, Orbital or Ash or Magnetic Man, Faithless, Stanton Warriors, Toddla T, Alex Metric and Jaguar Skills.

    I jump between stages like a little bitch at Glastonbury and love it.

    This. There's a lot of diversity in that there Glasto crowd
  7. Colin Murray once described Ricky Gervais as 'Stewart Lee lite' I think that's pretty accurate. If I only judged comics on how good they were compared to Stewart Lee, I'd never go and see any.
  8. Or that he had to set the title of the show about six months before he actually started writing it...?
  9. His stand-up shows to date have worked according to a strict rule of steady depreciating worth. So... Animals = Stunning, peerless stand-up. Politics = Great, clever performance. Fame = Decent, solid show, worthwhile but not remarkable. Anybody care to comment on whether Science continues this trend?
  10. I'm new in Flickr land, you should look at me here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/muldooon/
  11. http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/podcasts/frontrow/ You'll have to be quick though... Speaking of Stewart Lee on Radio 4, this is one of my favourite clips of him:
  12. Maybe Series 8 is the more mainstream series, then? Not so much for the fanboys? Aside from the irritating final episode it's a brilliant series. The stories are at their cleverest (Cassandra, Back In The Red, Krytie TV) the humour pitch perfect (Rimmer's salute's in the Captain's office, yes), the look of the show is gorgeous, the bunk scenes are there and at perfect length.
  13. Planet Sound made the connection between them and Royksopp too. It is good.
  14. Upon second viewing I was used to the sketches and liked them.
  15. You can't really compare digital ratings with terrestrial though. And Comedy Vehicle is in fairness a very well promoted program.
  16. Series 8 was the best series. That's part of why I'm relatively optimistic about this. The other reason: They've had nine bloody years to perfect the script.
  17. I thought it was good. Stewart Lee is - by some distance - my favourite comedian. All three of his DVDs are AAA standup comedy. On the whole I didn't think the sketches worked, and that massive rapper-build-up joke went on too long to justify it's humorous payoff. It did shit in the ratings though (just 1m), which is a shame.
  18. Ahh yes, I remember reading about the sweeps system a few years back, and thinking how dreadful it is. Thanks.
  19. Why was there not a new episode last week? Are all US shows this unreliable?

    Skins on E4

    My Skinscrush has transferred from Effy to Naomi. Love a girl that believes in something. At 18 years old Lisa Loveless is two years senior to Kayla too. Far more acceptable!

    "Don't you ever use Cunting and Oxfam in the same sentence" was a great line.

    Skins on E4

    I'm very pleased they laid into talent contests so mercilessly. The youth of today need to be told.

    Skins on E4

    It's uptight-mother's secret doorway into her sexman's bedroom, without anybody (daughter most importantly) ever suspecting a thing. (EDIT: oh, just noticed the 'detached' word in your post ) Skins, I've decided, is very very much TV for 15 year olds. But I think it is good at that job, the love pentagon thing has become a very interesting plot line, as has the lesbian thing that will surely be drowned in regret now that they're not off their faces on MDMA.
