On 14th July it’ll be the next Oxford Band Practice.
This month we’ll be working on ‘Chasing Cars’ by Snow Patrol, ‘Knocking on Heaven’s Door’ by Bob Dylan and ‘Comfortably Numb’ by Pink Floyd.
Just one of those pieces would be pretty adventurous for me, but not for everyone else.
All three of them?
It’ll be interesting to see how things pan out.
I made a video nasty today:
It’s weird, isn’t it?
That’s the thing with unscripted improv; wheel out a few props and just see what happens.
While I was editing that I accidentally saw an episode of ‘Made in Chelsea’.
Have you ever seen that TV Show?
If not, skip the next question.
Aren’t the people who feature in ‘Made in Chelsea’ some of the most self-obsessed, repulsive, vapid, empty-headed, odious, reprehensible, abhorrent, loathsome, revolting, detestable, repugnant, vile, nauseating, repulsive creatures ever to walk the face of this planet?
Jesus, what a complete waste of oxygen they are.
But ‘Made in Chelsea’ is car-crash television.
What it is doing is making these horrid people famous for being horrid.
I hope they enjoy their new-found fame.
Just not on my planet.
Speaking of people not on my planet, Germaine Greer, who I have long admired, has proved that even world-class academics can, on occasion, be complete and utter idiots.
What a twunt she is.
One would have thought that Dr Greer would know the difference between a professional, disciplined army and a group of rag-tag scruffs from a second- or third-world country.
And while I’m in the ‘obviously’ zone.
I can’t help reading the information that the BBC has 8,000 News staff, and then wondering how many news staff Sky International has.
I have read one source that says Sky has more than 20,000 news staff.
Which is interesting, if true, when one reads articles that say the BBC news are to try and reduce their staff-count by 1,500, in order to save money.
I’m not saying that either the BBC or BBC News are sacred cows, in fact I’d love the organisations to be given a spot of my scrutineering style of Business and Functional Analysis.
But the practice of sending a television OB crew and an over-salaried presenter to stand outside 10 Downing Street every time our Prime Minister farts, has to be questioned.
Mind you, over in the News International corner things aren’t going very well for the
Australian American media mogul Rupert Murdoch.
And the news that News International is sending in to the London operation a team of American lawyers to *cough* investigate the goings on at News International must be filling everyone with confidence.
I’m sure the brief given to these lawyers is to thoroughly investigate everything and turn all of the evidence over to the Metropolitan Police.
No, really. I’m sure of it.
