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,

Review of the L’Oreal Voluminous Superstar Mascara
February 15, 2017
On holiday in America in 2015 I bought the L’Oreal Beauty Tubes mascara. This was amazing, but when I went back last year, I couldn’t find it again. Instead, L’Oreal had this mascara, called Voluminous Superstar. It is one of those mascaras with two ends – a white coat first to lengthen your lashes and then the actual mascara to go over the top. This was just what I was looking for as I’ve liked those kind ever since I bought the Maybelline XXL volume mascara. (See my review here from 2005)……

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…..
Review of the Rose and Crown in Dunton Green
Review of the Rose and Crown restaurant in Dunton Green, Sevenoaks, Kent
February 9, 2018
There is a fundamental problem about going to visit my parents, and that is that the dog has to sleep in our bedroom. If he doesn’t he ends up scratching the door or waking everyone up whining, so instead I suffer with the noise he makes while he sleeps. Imagine something like a cross between an elephant and a sea-lion snoring whilst dreaming of mating, and you’ve almost got the level of noise our beloved Loki makes at night. (And day for that matter. Whenever he’s asleep basically.) So I admit, I was in somewhat of a tired daze the day we went to the Rose and Crown pub restaurant in Dunton Green to celebrate Dad’s birthday. However, I do remember the essentials well enough to write a little review….
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….
