fucking hell Stephen :(
is still Ed Miliband.
paul gambaccini is the guy who posts links to royal blood on your girlfriend's facebook wall, these guys are playing at the o2 in a few weeks, are you in???
djing from spotify at a houseparty, have you *heard* this new solange song. it's so good
"i don't like to go to clubs where they play dance music, motown is much better for dancing to and you can listen to it all night because it's recorded straight to vinyl which means the sound is warmer and not compressed to death."
until you find out too much about their crap opinions
but I did not speak up, because I am not a smug, complacent BBC old-guard, labour commentariat sexual predator.
He's worse than Sayeeda Warsi.
I can't put it any more strongly than that. Not without mentioning Danny Alexander.
Stephen Fry has some really dodgy and weird views. I'm sure he claimed women don't really enjoy sex a few years back. I think he's usually coming from a good place, but has a tendency to underthink certain issues, particularly ones which don't affect him directly.
and he knows lots of facts.
He's good at talking, and knows a lot of general knowledge. I think you need to be thinking on the boundaries of human understanding to claim that title. Theoretical physics or somesuch.
Stephen Fry, Stephen Hawking (smartest man alive natch, would be sooooo interesting), Albert 'the brain' Einstein (smartest man dead, obviously), Big Jimmy 'the wee man' Christ (definitely not religious or anything but still reckon he'd be REALLY interesting yeah) and Adolf 'the monster' Hitler (CONTROVERSIAL I know but wouldn't you love to see what he was like???)
some school governors and stuff to do the interviewing. I got asked who I'd invite to a dinner party and, being a spectacularly boring 15-year-old, said a few people including Hitler and Martin Luther King. The guy interviewing me said, "yeah, when you think about it, MLK and Hitler were very similar, both fighting for their own thing in the same kind of way."
I let it slide but I remember thinking "I'm sure that's not right".
he was testing you
Don't you like the company of women?
if I was to invite a sixth it would obviously be mother theresa
Even though you know Einstein would be in there like a flash.
Arthur Miller, Joe DiMaggio, Albert Einstein, Terry the janitor
we didn't start the fire
she was a cunt
He's certainly an interesting fellow but at the end of the day, he's an actor and quiz show host. Not most interesting person of all time material.
Fry to be replaced by David Attenborough at my dinner party
Need a bit of light relief with all your other guests!
Hitler was hilarious.
it does sound like it was a fairly emotional reaction influenced by the fact that his friend was arrested and released without charge, rather than just a random outburst.
my friends are all part of an insular media clique that collectively look like they've been at least knowledgeable of some awful stuff over the past 30 years boohoohoohoo despite their careers all flourishing boohoohoohoo why won't people just leave them alone boohoohoohoohoo
Good luck with that.
Ridiculous bullshit :(
really hope he falls off a bridge and bruises his sternum. heavily.
Shit, this is all fucked up...
then went off on a really weird rant about how gay people are all awful and misogynistic.
