Say some things about it if you want, I don't give a shit.
That is uncanny...
(Like it was so fucking hard to make)
he's got more hair than me tbf
that with the exception of BS, I can guarantee you I've been in shoreditch, and to less terrible raves/gigs/etc, than everyone who has posted above.)
(But I do still like a good waistcoat once a month or so)
Because I actually have never had a social life buzzing enough to have ever been to a rave of any description, so there.
especially those with indie bands who look anything like Tracy is Hot and the Clap. Nonetheless, I am happy to fall on my sword as an object of ridicule. Enjoy Heartworms at your abandoned garage food court gigs guys.
that's your visor
Haven't we all been saying this about Nathan Barley for years?
Somewhere between DVD-release puff piece and CHARLIE BROOKER WORRA LEGEND!!!
just thought it was a good way to remember what was a really funny, sharp TV programme. I remember watching it when it was first on and I was 17 and had pretty much never been to London and probably didn't quite get it, or at least all of it, but I could grasp the idea of trendy idiots and their strange allure, and the quality of the cast and writing was obvious. Pretty amazing that it's still a touchstone for so many references a decade on. Probably stands with comedies like The Office and The Thick of It for summing up a particular area so well.
"Mate, guess how old! Guess! Younger... younger... Thir-fucking-teen! Technically a Polanski."
"and the low-level passive-aggressive insinuation that if you don’t get what they’re doing then somehow it’s your fault …"
My friend, who is an artist, has been doing this since primary school.
I'm just wondering if this phenomena is something to do with certain personality traits (in certain kinds of people) that have come to the forefront or have been indulged in this generation somehow. Artists are generally very self absorbed people, they have to be I suppose, to be good at what they do. Was art in school given some massive cash injection in the 90s or something? And that's why this kind of personality has become the mainstream?
And most of them aren't and don't.
But did backup my point a bit.
"You're not the Dad, I don't love you any more, see you later"
"Are you coming to my party? Sweetcorn will be there, pizza will be there. Caramel?"
wouldnt be surprising.
because I remember thinking the exact same thing, that is was going to look horribly old-fashioned in a few years. The fact it doesn't is quite funny
(didn't read it)
for the 10th anniversary? k.
and the people it depicted, innit?
Here's another that focuses on Dan Ashcroft a bit more: http://www.pastemagazine.com/articles/2015/02/nathan-barley-turns-10.html
and in the articles: I can't think of another programme that looked so dated when it came out, but now seems totally contemporary. I remember the Shoreditch Twat nobwipe being furious that it existed.
intentionally or not
There is a Nathan Barley episode (where a journalistic piece requires that straight journo goes into mens loo to wank off a straight man) which is based on Russell Brand having similarly doing some investigating by doing something similar 'all part of a TV stunt for a documentary he was working on, which aimed to explore social taboos."
which is exactly what poor dan ashcroft was made to do in nathan barley
Load of backslapping nonsense about a good-but-not-great sitcom. Shut up, twats.
10 years old and it'd definitely be more relevant today than ever. Good show. Shame a load of my mates missed the point and became london twats
Don't even really know what it is.
Where are my points?
where you actually have to pay-in indie points for not knowing this
Fucking hell. 44!!!
