i've been sans internet for the last week...the bumbler has one of those shitty widget things, so he's as good as not got it.
anyway. we pretty much never txt each other. maybe the odd, 'when you home' etc.
but the last week we were. and then i realised we were just texting each other all the banal shite that would normally be clogging up this space. like some sort of dis withdrawal symptoms...anyway....this is what you were missing.
db: the five most interesting character developments in the wire? mcnulty, stringer/avon, sabotka and bodie. a whole spectrum of human emotion is explored in them particular roles. each with their own tragedy. after a re-watch it still remian the best bit of telly to have ever graced the screen.
mw: i prefer the liver birds
db: or birds of a feather. i wrote a thesis on how different aspects of british industrial history could be seen in doreens face over the course of 2 series. seriously tho, bodie was a real standout the 2nd time
mw: bodie is the most tragic death, no doubt. him, sabotka, omar.
db: he goes down fighting. stringer is equally tragic but 4 the opposite reason. this unflinching business mind goes out whimpering offerign his money. and when he says, 'looks like y'all made your mind up' it genuinly made me upset. 4 a show as drenched in moral and social decline as the wire, a large portion of characters manage to redeem themselves. its optimism comes from the complexity of the human condition, and the confused personal motivations of every human being. now time to wank over sum black tits
mw: 'the human condition' is such a moot phrase. not picking a fight, but it always rings hollow. 'a human story' wtf? human? annoys me. love you.
db: its just an umbrella phrase. it covers something with such intricate and bwilderin circuit, tht, its impossibe 2 describe without a convenient label. 'specially in txt format. and it's human because we're not talking about buns or tart. ps. love to the kids.
mw: road rage is the human condition. beans on toast is the human condition.
mw: this celeb big bro is genuinely the best telly for ages. gold
bw: don't rub it in...you know i aint got tely
mw: soz, but it properly makes me curl up and squeal, i get that excited by it. i don't want it to end.
mw: i know i'm going on about it, but is anyone saying it's good? on twitter or grace dent or summit?it's just some of the most wonderful telly and i feel like evryone has dismissed it. this and the summerrs r tops
db: barbara ellen gave it the thumbs up. otha than that, its been ignored. the best two series of big bro and they've been shunned
db: i really think i might leave cynicism behind. there's such an uppity studnt punk ethic up here. either tht or 'woo woo' kids. i want people who are longing 4 sumthin better, like ritchie and eddie, i want disenchantment
db: i meant punk as in 'punk'. these kids kids sure as shit aint billy elliot...i mean idol...definitly idol.
mw: i dunno. i like cynicism. i like getting over the top excited. both good options.
mw: i've decided i love all women. seriously. i love them all. they all beguile me. i want to woo every last one. every one.
mw: even your mum
bw: i keep your mums bouffant in a tupperware box and fuck it when i'm saucy. i mean, really fuck it. as 4 birds...i'm not really a fan...they make me want to crush or ruin everything.
mw: i'm gonna start to talk to girls like i'm ma'long hando.
mw: i'm gonna start a blog called 'why'd you hate the ''friends'' in real life, looking at why the gang are actually morally bankrupt and the show is rotten as fuck, starting with why it was wrong for monica and chandler to think they deserved a kid more than anyone else.
mw: p.s. i'm developing an obsession with american idol. it's amazing. it's filet mignon with a lovely peppercorn sauce to x-factor's steak and shit crisps.
mw: p.p.s do you get the feeling we're just texting each other stuff that would normally rot on dis? i need the internet.
five txt conversations that didn't need to happen.
there's a lesson to be learnt here i feel.
