Guess what? You’ll never guess.

For twenty years, between films, Steven Seagal has been working as a policeman in new Orleans.

This is my favourite news ever. Why isn’t this ON the news? As Videogum says “I like when he says “I mean, the show is real.” Because that actually does need to be said, and will probably have to be said at the beginning and end of every episode. “What you are about to see is a real show.” “What you just saw was a real show.” Even then, they will still get so many letters. “Dear, A&E, I love your fake new show that is so fake.”

This should be called ‘Middle-Aged Crime Dracula’.

Also: “No stunt doubles” over the shot of the stunt double.


The Conversation

I’ve got another blog which seems to suit written pieces better, so I wrote something on it. Hope you enjoy.

The Conversation.

If they can do it, so can we!

make new friends

This week’s playlist goes out to all the Twitter-users in the UK and America currently engaged in lively debate on the respective value of our health care services. Sadly, the playlist is on Spotify, which America doesn’t have yet (I think), so I can’t share it with peeps from that country. If anyone knows a way I can, please tell me about it!

Anyway, enjoy! (p.s. The snake represents America only in his massive military superiority.) Link

(Once again, thanks to those who suggested some of these!)


A quiet week in front of the computer

August 14, 2009


Well… began like this…

…the response was immediate

…I explained myself on the news yesterday…

…woke up today to this..

…to sum up.

This all took less than three days.

Now, what was that about Twitter being ‘inconsequential’ and ‘superficial’? Hmm? HMMMMM?

(A quick correction: for some reason, the text of my Channel 4 interview has me saying “you change the NHS at your peril”, when in fact I said “you attack the NHS at your peril.”)
