good for them
are the first three people I'll ban if I ever become grand head of television.
We'd have to completely revolutionise the way television works, I suppose.
I'd leave that to my backroom staff. I'd just be the public face and decision maker.
the man's an arse. he wont stop talking about sartre
where she said 'hi young people, (furrowing brow) I'm young hip and irreverent too! Join us for The Wall on Monday where we've got bands, comedy and chat. How exciting!'
I really hate this new style of youth presenting where you have to be really self-aware and disinterested by who you're talking to. It's like everyone's copying Simon Amstell, but they don't seem to think being funny is important to making that schtick work. And she's the very worst of the lot. I'd love to cave her head in.
and the minute I hear her speak there's absolutely no way I can become aroused for a good half hour or so. She's like the female version of smug, wanker students but she sounds like a man. So she's like the male version of the female version.
And you have to admit, that thing with Ben Elton...
I had to bite my tongue throughout. She was making that thing happen where you actually feel the pressure on your skin from the irritation.
How does Gok Wan make women feel good about themselves? By making them physically attractive, and specifically, attractive to the opposite sex, thus buying into the ideals of sexual hegemony. Stick that up your Feminist pipe and smoke it.
Can you guess just how much 'She's All That' annoyed me?
of women being told they "deserve" to feel fabulous and sexy. In general I think the people who go on these shows come out much less pleasant than they were at the start. I don't mean that to come across as sexist, but Gok Wan/Trinny and Susannah tend to give women this idea that they have a right to feel like the best-looking woman in the world and if they don't, their partner is a total bastard. And I just think it's toss..
He's also a grade a prick. Just look at him. What a prick. He's so smug and he's just a prick.
on physical appearance.
In its own way, 'How to Look Good Naked' is incredibly chauvanistic
if someone did that to my mum i would fucking hit him so hard. even if she was more confident for it
Image obsessed society = consequence of media saturation as well as human nature? Yes.
"Self help" TV shows = part of the Media? Yes.
Perhaps he helps on a very superifical level, but shows like these re-enforce ideas that are prevalent in society, whilst actively being part of society itself.
Such trite means of "self-help" aren't really conducive to long-term self confidence though
an odd camp man sycophnatically go 'aww, you look amazing' for a couple of weeks makes you feel confident and beautiful when you're not, that's not really that much of a positive thing. It's a bit kind of... pathetic and needy, to me.
You get the feeling with some of them (and I have to say I've only seen two or three episodes) that if they weren't told every five minutes that they looked good, they'd collapse into a ball of self-loathing. And whilst yes, that's really sad and I feel for them, fuelling that desire rather than getting rid of it doesn't strike me as the best way to deal with the problem.
didn't he used to be a fat biffer of a child who everyone hated? i'm sure i read that in the Sunday Times magazine...
His show and the concepts it buys into are however awful
he flays kittens and then suffocates children with the skin
locks himself inside an airproof cabinet and huffs his own farts til he passes out and wakes up with a new fashion idea
off he's a right arsehole to the women on the show
seems remotely genuine, so I don't think it's too much of a stretch to believe that. He's like bitchy men who put on smiley smiley happy face until whoever they're talking to goes out the room and then spews forth the bitching.
bet he was a right little cock wanker
parading a woman round naked for so long she no longer cares how people see her?
isnt this similar to raping a virgin so many times she no longer cares if shes fuckd or not?
I wouldn't like to invite him round to my house for a brew, but I'd like to say hello to him and see how he smelt.
has to bully them untill they get naked?
id smack the bastard if he got my family naked in public
