Charlie Brooker's G2 article that day:
i just presumed it was a normal part of being human...
imagining how you'd react to the death of someone important or close to you?
i get those as well
It is. Hell, I remember when me some friends went through a period where we'd try to think up the most tasteless ways to let Robbie Williams know we didn't like him.
Sadly I didn't win. I thought I would, but when Kev detailed how he'd reenact certain scenes from Japanese snuff films in Robbie's house, with Robbie's parents watching - and then after Robbie expired, he explained how he'd force his parents to thank him.
argument isn't it? Its like standing on a cliff thinking that you are in control of the fact that you can jump or if youre in a meeting you can quite easily tip coffee in your boss's face as he does your 121
haha! I don't think there's anyone who likes them. Or finds then even slightly productive.
what's a 121?
its a way of killing time at work by lying and being lied to - an evaluation of your work output or something.
You touch my stapler, I'll fucking kill you, understand? I'll burn the fucking place down and kill you, aight?!
i'd say more 'Imp of the Perverse'...possibly even Freud's Todestriebe (death drift)?
the link on that same page - Supposing it's OK to lie for the sheer hell of it.
Charlie Brooker writes like the funniest motherfucker I have read for quite some time. He has such a wonderful way with words. Sigh.
has been picked up
where? Who? Is is better than nathan barley? Tvgohome?
it's good, there were three pilots earlier this year.
when it comes to DiS monologues deffo. TV Go Home should be read out loud in every school throughout the land. Then maybe we won't churn out some many bucketfuls of prolecrap - I mean, there isn't enough call centre jobs to go round is there?
Screenburn book three times in about a month and a half
it never fails to bring tears to my smug eyes.
still good though? I never bought it at the time and it just isn't current anymore is it. I won't remember any of the shows, I reckon.
but you probably will. In fact, it was actually quite scary remembering shows like "touch the truck" from years ago that I actually watched.
I first became a big fan of Charlie Brooker when he did the cartoons in PC Zone magazine. Cyberwats or summink. They were pretty damn funny. He's frankly brilliant.
This has to be my favourite Supposing:
yeah that was good. Missed one of the episodes though.
good. I thought he had real screen presence. He sounded like his ranting articles very much!
he didn't seem to take his tv rants far enough on it. In screen burn they go really over the top and that's what makes them hilarious, but the program was more.....chucklesome (I'm pretty sure that isn't a word)
