Dostoevsky or a Star Wars figure ?
I love Charlie Brooker's style of comedy.

His Screenwipe on BBC3 would often leave me helpless with laughter . It's his genuine honesty and skill at pointing out the ludicrous aspects of the accepted norm that makes him, so effective.

Anyway this piece for the guardian is great ! and made me laugh out loud at my desk here in the Department of Confibularities and local Gulibility....


Replace Dostoevsky with a Star Wars figure and he could be talking about me !

I wonder how much Play are doing Cosmos for ?

....and whether the OST is available (my 33rpm vinyl needs replacing!)

Er, the Star Wars figure please, for the bald chap in the corner. And all the others.

Mind you, I'm the same with guitar tutorials, I have a few DVDs and books that I have bought to improve my chops, and I've watched them/read the first thirty pages but can't discipline myself to play exactly what I'm told to. I first learned to play over thirty years ago by playing along with records, so that's my MO, and I either can already play what I'm being taught or can't keep up with it and feel discouraged.

I'm okay with CDs and movie DVDs, though: I listen to/watch every one of 'em. Yes indeedy.
