|I Saw Blogadoon|
Just trying to think of as many blog play on words as possible. It's the sort of thing you do when you're running out of proper headlines. I mean The Sun have been doing this for years. Speaking of which, up here in Scotland an old mate of mine is in hot water again for something he's said and he's a Sun columnist. It appears he's on the front of the Scottish Daily Star for another misdemeanour. But for fuck's sake The Scottish Daily Star?!!!!!! How can cunts like that get on their high horse about anything?!!What's the difference between that and the one made in London? Are the nipples a bit more erect because of the cold weather? Or are the big titted chicks a bit more communist about their views?
Funnily enough last night was a bit of a legendary show when it was just filler as I fly from Glesca to Oz. I was on with all the new open spots and stuff but before I went on, the great Mark Nelson went on and did a fine spot chock full of new stuff and then I had myself a rare treat by standing at the back and witnessing the wonderful Jim Muir and his character The Reverent Obediah Steppenwolf although I don't think he uses the Steppenwolf bit now. I'll not mention some of the material because it's the sort of stuff that some of the good readers might take offence to. But what I will say is that it was proper offensive stuff. Very funny, can't help repeating it in my head and technically brilliantly delivered. His last routine about how white men created rap music to me goes down as a modern classic.
Stewart Lee in an interview with Sctosgay magazine says that this Jimmy Carr thing might just be the turning point about comics and how popular they are and I have a feeling he might be right. When you see comedians on the front of tabloids these days being portrayed as public enemy number one and not as friends and champions of the people, you get thinking that the risible Arena Roman amphitheatre shows might just fade away. I fuckin hope so. To me when they strut on stage in these places, suit and ear piece in place, they turn into Billy Graham and with about the same amount of wit and probably just as right wing.
I'm away to Oz tonight. Hopefully I'll come back wiser and a tiny bit richer. Keep the home fires burning. Speak tomorrow in the air or definitely on Friday in the loneliest city in the world. The geordies went on holiday they went to Budapest.
