|THE PILL BOX|
A CATALOG OF CULTURE & BARBARITY
i generally get more interested as (a) ppl leave [it's just such a big shouty crowd at the start], and (b) as ppl unfold and elaborate themselves
but i am too tired and busy at keep much of a check this time: its ed and i just put the book i've been proofing to bed on sun
I too lost interest this weekend, though I assumed that was because J Marsh going had removed all the drama. Watched proper 'quality' TV last night (the Poliakoff thing on BBC1)---- it was dreadful.
Quite... It all seemed pointless, but not in any interesting way... It was all so unconvincing... totally improbable and rarefied (I mean how many people could relate to the characters or situations in even the remotest way) without ever being mythic... and like a lot of (quality) TV, it felt like a big, glossy advert... primarily for itself... I'm yet to be convinced of Poliakoff...
(incidentally -- posted here so you don't miss it on a lower-down comments tree -- the aaronovitch watch blog is if nothing else well written and great fun, plus one of its founders is i believe a wire reader) (= well done me swank swank) (actually he may just be a listener to resonance FM, i forget)Post a Comment
