Yet another UK show we like, no surprises here.
Music, life and culture conversationalists with no intention of building empires who love and hate with equal ease.
I just finished watching The Young Ones: Every Stoopid Episode DVD this weekend and fallen in love. I’m especially taken with punk med student Vyvyan (Ade Edmonson) and anarchist sociology student Rick (Rik Mayall) individually and their hilarious hate for each other. The gif above pretty much sums up their relationship throughout the show’s two series and I love it.
I’m going to start watching Ade and Rik’s post-Young Ones show Bottom soon, as recommended by Jonathan Higgs, when Netflix zips it to me. weeeeeee! —Cheep
Last night, on the season finale of Mad Men, our favorite player, Don Draper, did the one thing that kills a playa’s appeal. Propose.
Belle and Sebastian played their new song “Write About Love” and classic “Piazza, New York Catcher” on Jimmy Fallon last night.
“Write About Love,” from album of the same name, is a jig inspiring, easy breezy poppy number calling out to the disillusioned cubicle crews around the world who hate their jobs. Fun!
Dear Catastrophe Waitress’s “Piazza, New York Catcher” however is multi-narrative that never fails to make me cry. It mostly the romantic story line that kills me:
Elope with me Miss Private and we’ll sail around the world
I will be your Ferdinand and you my wayward girl
How many nights of talking in hotel rooms can you take?
How many nights of limping round on pagan holidays?
Oh elope with me in private and we’ll set something ablaze
A trail for the devil to erase
I love you I’ve a drowning grip on your adoring face
I love you my responsibility has found a place
Beside you and strong warnings in the guise of gentle words
Come wave upon me from the family why not that’s absurd
“You’ll take care of her, I know it, you will do a better job”
Maybe, but not what she deserves
Elope with me Miss Private and we’ll drink ourselves awake
We’ll taste the coffee houses and award certificates
A privy seal to keep the feel of 1960’s style
We’ll comment on the decor and we’ll help the passer by
And at dusk when work is over we’ll continue the debate
In a borrowed bedroom virginal and spare
I wish that you were here with me to pass the dull weekend
I know it wouldn’t come to love, my heroine pretend
A lady stepping from the songs we love until this day
You’d settle for an epitaph like “Walk Away, Renee”
The sun upon the roof in winter will draw you out like
Meet you at the statue in an hour
Meet you at the statue in an hour
This performance caused the most serious downpour I’ve had in a long time!
We’re supposed to see the Glasgow bunch tonight at the Williamsburg Waterfront and we fear the power of Stuart Murdoch’s voice will start the leaky faucets, we’ve felt it coming. At first I thought I would be fine but I think my respective reactions to these performances are all too telling of what a potential emotional roller coaster this show will be! Oh well :)
This weekend an Innernette uproar was caused after SNL premiered a skit featuring host Amy Poehler and Kristen Wiig as ladies who lunch competing for smallest hat owner in their table. Tim & Eric Awesome Great Job! fans called out copy cat! at the skit because Tim & Eric did Tiny Hats first. This is known as the Great Tiny Hat War of 2010.
Both skits hold their own and aside from tiny hats as their common thread, the skits are different animals. This is just internet making a big deal out of a small thing. I mean both are quite funny but if we had to take sides, Tim & Eric win all the way.
