really bad naughty women

a list of books or maybe articles about how vile feminists are doing whatever it is they are doing and generally being very naughty indeed.
hurrah- i probably have time to read them all - well there are rather a lot; i'll read a few...

or maybe it can go on my list of important things to do after perfecting my lamp-post impression, shouting at the sea and watching documentaries on Channel 5 (the one with viewers so intelligent they had to simplify it to '5')...

oh fuck it - if i really want a laugh, there are plenty of comedy clubs (and

    "the one with viewers so intelligent they had to simplify it to '5' "

    Correction SW, it's "five"

    Either five are striving for the intellectual literate market *cough* or they are the New Sesame Street for the Naughties.

    Probably the latter, as there is lack of capitalisation...
    programmes such as "Respectable" don't help their case.

    you're right dammit!
    i think five are trying to pick up on the viewers lost by 4 (four?) when they started showing hard-hitting documentaries about 'the dark side of prostitution' (well blind me! i only knew about the obvious happy fluffy side of prostitution) wall to wall from about 8pm each night.
    whether wall to wall csi from about 8pm each night will help them do that is debateable.
    gosh look at us the media analysts!

    I do watch five for CSI and NCIS - I'm a sucker for forensics. But certainly not much else on there worth watching.

    Five also have two new channels, Five US and Five Life. Five US has, you guessed it, the early eps of CSI.

    There really is little hope for me.

    you'd have thought CSI would feature on the niche channel 'Five recently ended Life'.
    I do find Horatio quite the most insufferable character in the whole of fiction...
    Horatio lifts mirror shades and puts paternal arm round young boy newly deprived of sister/father/hamster:
    Horatio:'well son...'
    Together they look out at the sunset, united and yet separate.
    Boy: 'But sir; now I don't have anyone to fight/respect/stroke and feed small bits of cucumber to'
    Boy looks vaguely sad - like Jeremy Irons portraying extreme emotion - or when slightly in need of the toilet.
    Horatio: 'Ohh, you do, son'. Replaces mirror shades. Boy looks confused/moved and offers him some carrot.
    Roll credits.
    V/O 'Win £500 in Five's competition: simply tell us 'what was the cause of death in tonight's CSI?':
    a) being happy
    b) being a bit happy
    c) being mashed to a bloody pulp with a tyre iron, fed into a mincing machine and then pumped through the drains of a strip club so we could include gratuitous shots of women pole-dancing.'
    Never watched it, myself.

    Excellent overview of the gingered one. I find I can tolerate Miami if I ignore the first and last scene.

    First scene usually involves a body hacked to death and run over by a lorry six or seven times. An underling mentions something like "this looks like a nasty accident". 'H' stands with head turned slightly to the side and says "no gentlemen, this is murrrder". The last scene has him standing outside the copshop with hands on hips, replacing the shades, and saying something equally smarmy.

    CSI:NY I can barely watch, Lt Mac (personality bypass) Taylor annoys the heck out of me. I happened to see Forrest Gump a few weeks ago, and he played Lt Dan Taylor. What's up with that, is he that boring he has to have dead similar character names?

    Cackle at the Jeremy Irons remark. My mother's cousin Howard, an actor who worked in the UK & Aust between the 60s and 80s, hated him with a passion. Howard also used to hang around with such names as James Mason. (Stormy name-dropper!!)

    Oh yeah, your readership may have doubled.. my blogstats this morning indicate that eight incomings were from here.

    wish i knew how to do the stats on this blog - part of my new-found allegiance to wordpress is based on the fact that i can see that i had 6 page views this month...
    i did one show where we used a photo of jeremy irons in winter's tale (or 'the fucking snow queen' as we called it) as the 'red card' for crap acting ; those guilty of pointless emoting were sent off with it for 5 minutes to reflect upon their sins

    The 'red card' sounds great, you couldn't have picked a better face!

    Don't worry, WordPress Fever will take hold of you sooner or later...

    Reminds me of when I worked in the theatre. Panto season - Robin Hood and Daniella Westbrook played Maid Marian.
    End of run and tradition held that the crew would take to the stage with a spoof panto during the end of run party. When it was time for Maid Marian to appear onstage at this particular party she was represented by.... a plank.

    It was v funny but I guess you needed to be there...

    no; i have been there - often worked with performers so lacking in chraisma and ability that to substitute them for a plank would have stood out a mile
