So I’ve not been as verbose as usual for two reasons. Issue the first: work. Now that we’ve got the catalogue & circulation up and running there is a lot of stuff to do. And it is time-consuming, kinda boring stuff. But it has to be done, and hopefully before the students come back in their droves and invade the place.
Issue the second: The SFX forum, it is just addictive.
Issue the third I’ve been busy with Veronica Mars, mainly downloading and then ripping to cd so I can delete cause Pavlov hasn’t the greatest memory in the world :) Also there have been some tv shows that are actually worth watching on. Which is a change.
Issue the fourth: I’ve been writing. An idea popped into my head, and if I just tell the story in my head then I’ll get too far along with it and get bored when I try to write the beginning
Despite these varied issues and concerns I have returned today with a tale of woe. Woe and depression. You see, there is a tv show where silly people discuss cars and brake-horsepower and how crap American/French cars are. And generally act as though they are fantastic, although they are not, yet they still manage to be amusing despite being total arses. This show is called Top Gear. And now Digg people are complaining, whinging and whining cause Discovery are going to be showing a dumbed-down American version.
I know what you are thinking, how on earth could anyone, with the greatest will in the world, dumb down Top Gear? Dumb is what it is. Thats what makes it so watchable. Its all “cars go fast” “Planes go fast” brrrrrrrrm.
Not to mention the fact that it has that moron from Sky One’s hideous Brainiac as a presenter, Hamster they call him on Top Gear, don’t know his real name.
