Ralfe Band - Barricades (by HighlineRecs

From the brilliant new album “Son be Wise” -  and the video is co-directed by Julian Barratt!  

Saw the band live last night in Manchester - a magical gig, spoilt only by the fact we had to leave early to catch the last train home. 

This is my personal mantra every morning before I set out to work…

Ralfe Band - Come On Go Wild (by HighlineRecs)

Next time you find yourself lurking in the corner at a party, watching the disgusting fun unfold around you, start saying the word “despair” out loud. Begin the incantation at conversational level, then increase the volume incrementally until someone asks you to leave. I guarantee you’ll be bellowing at the top of your lungs before anyone even notices. If you’re lucky, someone else’ll join in, and then you’ve made a new friend. I know; I’ve tried it myself.
Charlie Brooker (via seenisambol)

Undoubtedly cute, and pretty, and manages to bring out the motherly in me.  (Christ knows it takes a lot.)  And yet, still so friggin’ annoying somehow.


He’s very much an introvert’s comedian; I can see why some people might find him annoying, but only Amstell could write a “sitcom about depression, disconnectedness and isolation” (SA) and actually make it funny!  You really, really should watch Grandmas’s House or ‘Numb’ - I think you’d love them.  ’Numb’ is on iPlayer atm - if you get the time check it out!

But what I find annoying is that I’m worse than him. I find him extremely extroverted, actually. ET-continue-explaining: which makes me so much worse than him, who already says he’s the worst that can be, while he’s having friends all over the world, looking gorgeous and being professionally funny. I just realised, writing this, I’d like him to acknowledge just once he’s not the only one and not the worst off? He must have said that, surely? Once?

I know, I know… it can be hard to suspend disbelief when someone this successful and attractive goes on about how isolated, sad, depressed, etc, etc they are…I can see how that can be quite irritating…. to be fair though, he’s self aware and self deprecating enough take the piss out of his own self pity and i’m glad he exists amongst the more glittery and brash comedians - he kind of validates being a certain type of angsty outsider - e.g. when he talks about having hated school parties so much “couldn’t wait to turn 17 in order get a driving licence and drive away from all the fun” etc.   I dunno, I suppose I’m just a massive sucker for his awkward, sensitive outsider schtick - it feels real enough to me :)

“Double the morphine and bring me Atticus Finch!”
Love Simon Amstell’s neurotic, honest, unblokey stand-up.  If you’ve not seen Numb or the sublime ‘Grandma’s House’ yet you’re missing out.

The Hitcher’s Speech: A Christmassy Message To The Nation

oonaseckar:


(The Hitcher has his back to the camera, and is mumbling. It’s not clear whether he’s mumbling at someone who is just out of shot, or purely to himself. His back view: he is wearing a tweed pencil skirt, slightly baggy, and a pink angora high-necked sweater. Also a slightly greying chestnut wig, which is styled along the lines of a decorous little-old-lady bubble perm. He is wearing chunky-heeled oxblood brogues, and a small chihuahua languishes there at his feet. It is very still. Very still indeed. It’s probably stuffed. He coughs, chokes, swallows down a cigar stub and chokes some more, and turns around. His giant Polo monocle wobbles in his eye.)

HITCHER: What? Boy, what is that muck? You take that motherdiddling turkey and stick it up your chuff, bring me turkey pie and mash with a side order of pearly queen sago pud else I’ll cut you, boy, I’ll cut you deep and they’ll have to relocate your arse for your gentlemen callers to get better access.

(Off-screen murmur. Hitcher starts in faint surprise, turns around and leans and leers into the camera suspiciously.)
