Never Mind The Buzzcocks

On BBC2, 9pm Mondays, repeated on Saturdays. Presented by Mark Lamarr. After watching Never Mind The Buzzcocks yesterday, I thought I’d write and say what I think about it!

Why the hell is this program still on? Surely it doesn’t even attract a loyal fanbase from its series from years ago? Each time I watch Never Mind The Buzzcocks, it’s purely because there’s nothing else on, and surely a tv program can’t survive on that basis alone?

If I were famous, no matter how much I was trying to promote myself, there’s no way I’d go on this show. Despite Bill Bailey’s and Phill Jupitut’s efforts for entertaining light comedy, Mark Lamarr always opens his mouth and spoils it. The way he treats his guests is shocking too. He usually decides he doesn’t like someone and then picks on them making snide comments throughout the whole show waiting for them to lose their cool and say something back. This would be fine if the guest deserved it, but usually his remarks are totally uncalled for.

The only entertaining thing about this week’s show was when Mark remarked that he’s noticed that black people really don’t like it when people imply they’re gay. This is with a line up of black guys (which was the DJ in Norman Cook’s Dub be good to me) and hip hop artist Blak Twang as a guest. Blak seriously got pissed off about that comment, which was actually quite funny, especially when he tried throwing the jokes back at Mark, who was quite happy to say he was gay!

The music quiz itself is still a good idea; it just needs someone else to write Mark’s script.

Entertainment, TV,

Anti-reflective coating on your glasses – is it worth it?
October 9, 2016
Whenever I’m recording a You Tube video in my work-room, all I seem to do is spin round in circles trying not to have massive white rectangles on my glasses. They somehow even manage to appear with my back to the window! When Chris is taking photos for my Weekly Wardrobe posts, we’ve more-or-less given up with glasses, so I stumble about blind for the sake of not having glaring white blobs in the middle of my face. (Hashtag blogger problems.) I am so short-sighted, I cannot see a thing without them, and I hate that feeling so much. So finally, even though there was nothing particularly wrong with my glasses, I decided to splash out and buy a new pair with anti-reflective coating….
Dorling Kindersley Fashion book review
The book you must buy if you’re interested in Fashion – the ultimate book of costume and style Published by DK Dorling Kindersley – Book review
October 30, 2017
Everything about the cover of this book is misleading, and unfortunately you will find it in bookshops with a cellophane wrapper so you may not be able to look inside. With only the word ‘Fashion’ in bold pink letters on the spine, and a modern slim-fitting dress flocked on the front, you would be forgiven for thinking this is a book about modern fashion. You’d be wrong…
Rogue theatre company review
Review of The Firebird by the Rogue Theatre Company in Cornwall
August 31, 2018
Imagine, if you will, being met by a fairy at the edge of magical woodland, and led down a secret pathway shaded by old twisted rowan and chattering leaves of beech, but lit by glinting lights strung through the branches. Each way you turn you’re met with strange and eerie settings of mysterious white princess bedrooms, strangely metallic baby clothes hanging on a line; gothic ravens adorning old books; abandoned tea parties disturbingly strewn with red; and odd antique paintings foreseeing the future; each with its character singing, dancing or otherwise performing as you pass. And that’s just the beginning…..

Living with hypothyroidism – blame, balance, and being kind to yourself
May 24, 2018
This week is Thyroid awareness week and the 25th of May is World Thyroid Day. It feels like every day of the week and every week of the year is National or International awareness day for something or other. Well, this is mine. I hope we don’t get too weary of these sorts of days and weeks that we become indifferent about them. Anyway, I wrote more about my Hypothyroid disease story on a post a few years ago if you’d like a read of that first; and please scroll down to watch the video I made about it as well…
