I must watch it properly; now retired I tend to fall asleep watching programmes such as this and this is exactly what happened. Bit concerned that I wrote ‘Can’t quite get used to him being so thin these days, though’ in 2009 because I was thinking exactly the same t’other night so can only assume he’s got even thinner. Oh, and I still miss Gerald….
The interview was interesting. Pleased that he described his programmes as ‘collages’ because that makes sense of me not making sense of them [if that makes sense] but still finding them thoroughly enjoyable. Also enjoying the Art of America series with my favourite art critic [the one with the unpronounceable name].
I think his name is pronounced ‘valdemar yanoochak’ or thereabouts. He’s careful to remain on the periphery of the art establishment so is therefore a good ‘un. Haven’t watched his series on American art yet but will sometime over the next month: such is the freedom from clock-watching that iplayer and Virginmedia Cable Catch-up permits
Also get Youtube on the goggler now, and after the interview Matron linked, watched again Meades’s ‘Joy of Essex’. Intriguing and engrossing: the faux local radio presenter is the hideous love child of Partridge and Chapman, very funny
