I keep waiting for new and exciting things to happen so I'll have something to really post about, but I spent an entire day yesterday huddled up in bed and watching Misfits
and panel shows with an electric blanket on and all the lights off, so basically this is just going to be another post about panel shows (because I don't really have much to say about Misfits
except that I'd forgotten how good it was).
1. I'm out of Mark Lamarr episodes of Never Mind The Buzzcocks
and am deeply sad inside. Whyyy do I find him endearing? Look at my life, look at my choices. But also, look at how adorable he can be, so whatever:
2. When you Google "why does Mark Lamarr hate Jimmy Carr" (which is a thing I've done; I'm not proud), the second hit is the Mark Lamarr/Jimmy Carr tag on AO3. Of course it is. I genuinely wanted to know what one small offhand remark Jimmy Carr made that led to two full seasons of bewildering scorn, but the internet has offered nothing as an explanation but their apparent secret love? I don't know. I didn't click the link, because it's not really a thing that I want, tbh. I did spend every episode after imagining Mark Lamarr as Helga to Jimmy Carr's Arnold though, which added a delightful subtext to the inexplicable hatred. Someday, you will be his, football-head. Someday.
3. I watched every episode of Was It Something I Said
in a sitting on Saturday night despite not having a strong love for the show -- and because I have a problem with panel shows. Obviously. Though really, I'd heard Rhod Gilbert was in an episode and figured I'd just watch up through his episode... without realizing he was in episode seven or eight. My life, My Choices Part II: The Regretification.
4. This is a thing that exists, and which explains a lot of things I didn't realize I needed explaining until the moment I saw it. And now it all makes sense.
L-R: John Oliver, some dude, Richard Ayoade, David Mitchell
L-R: omg my tiny dorky bbs (and some dude)
It is so cold. Why is this happening. :(
