This blogging thing can be something of a loss at times. Like speaking into a void, where you're never sure if anyone is actually listening. When most of what you churn out is the sort of comment that populates the various music and cultural sections of the Sunday supplements that litter the floor beside your toilet as you crap, then it truly can feel like an excercise in repeating opinions just for the sake of it. For the purpose of giving yourself some sort of over inflated sense of ego that you too are an opinion maker. As someone on Oldrottenhat commented of late 'too many people in the world seem to imagine that the rest of us care about their opinions. I liked it, so I'm giving you my opinion, even though you don't care.'
I was going to rave on about the joyous accidental discovery of Paramount's Drawn Together, a show subverting the themes of reality TV shows like BB by throwing a set of animated archetypes together and playing their subdued racial and social stereotyping off against each other. It made me laugh, but as usually someone has inevitably gotten to the punch quicker than me and subjected the programme to some serious slating. I've just seen the one episode tonight and liked it. Its on Paramount, Fridays at 10pm, check it out and make up your own mind.
You tube as ever has a selection of clips and episodes from the show for you to watch.
