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.

Burlesque Wonderland – Alice through the Martini glass at The Fleece in Bristol

From blackberries yesterday to burlesque today! And why not? Rain didn’t really know what to do to celebrate her twenty-first birthday. She had originally planned a day of wand-making (yes really) with her two best friends, followed by films and a sleepover. Then Jude spotted this event in Bristol just a couple of days beforehand and we all decided that we’d quite like to go. So the wand-making stopped early for everyone to change into their Alice in Wonderland Costumes….
10 ideas to help you get through the day
January 29, 2017
I’m writing this on the dreariest January day ever with rain pouring down and freezing cold hands; it’s barely surprising that we are likely to feel depressed at this time of year. Some are lucky enough to only feel low in spirits every now and then, while others suffer with melancholia so bad they lose hope of never feeling that way again. The best way to deal with those times is usually distraction. By all means, take a little time to yourself if you need it, but then I think the best thing to do is find something else to keep your mind occupied. Here are some ideas…..
