who do the girls fancy more?
But if I were it'd be P to the A to the motherfucking X-MAN
who answered honestly and properly
i miss him and matt
Some secret indie nerd in the production team is beaming from ear to ear right now. "This one's for you, Eddie!"
I think i do now. anyone who can speak that quickly and that articulately at the same time has something really going for them.
Also i like casual paxman, he was becoming a bit of a caricature. Its nice to see his real personality a bit.
I can understand why people would dislike him what with him being all shouty and attention seeking and whatnot, but you only have to listen to him for like five minutes to see that he's also pretty intelligent and self-aware. The depth of some people's dislike for him is pretty baffling.
his reasoning is absolutley spot-on, not that his reasoning clarifies him as right OR wrong.
how does he know that the photographer wasn't acting with exactly the same reasons he was ? i.e spontaneous/impulsive, not thought out ?
Plus, if he was genuinely thinking that sachs was basically still Manuel, then regardless of how eloquently he can speak, he's fucktarded. I don't believe he genuinely thought that for one second.
The two things aren't even remotely comparable
why you're prepared to extend the benefit of the doubt to some grubby pap, but not to Brand himself. Upskirt shots get money and papparrazi know it - I'd be very surprised if it were entirely spontaneous.
Trying to stick a camera up a girls skirt to get a picture of her bits without her consent is a far more disagreeable and offensive act than the prank call.
I just think he does some of the un-funniest shallow observational humor I've ever heard, though I don’t hate him for it
Not sure if it's more that I have changed or he has, but he's probably one of my favourite 'personality' types (I'll refrain from calling him a celebrity because he seemingly wouldn't appreciate it). It's nigh on impossible to be so ludicrously verbose and still not come across as pompous but he manages it, as far as I'm concerned anyway. Caught the last ten minutes of the interview and loved it, will watch the rest later today.
Really good stuff, i'm a big fan of his anyway so he didn't need to win me round or anything but it always surprises me how eloquent and intelligent he obviously is.
I really wish he could cast aside the ridiculous character he's built up for himself that he uses for the most part in his stand-up because as an ordinary bloke in a conversational format he is absolutely excellent.
Can't wait for the new podcasts.
