Ten points on the principle

"Between her brain and her mouth there was no interlocutor."


"Cunnilingus and psychiatry brought us to this."

It's a big, bad addictive thing is The Sopranos, even on the third or fourth go around. It's pervading my January, making shit of my plans to snowglide naked down the bumps and grinds of Croagh Patrick, scuppering any airs I had of going on soup runs for the homeless, rendering folly my vague intentions of re-entering the world of the woo.

Nobody writes casual racism and hypocrisy like David Chase and company, not even Bertie's cronies could hold a lit fuse to Satriale's finest.

Oh Madonna!

Still, soon enough I'm going to have to go out into the world and be a person, just like other people, cursing the fact that a real rain finally came to wash the streets clean of all that literary white stuff.

Fuck it.

One more episode.

One day you'll be saying the same thing about Glee

Isn't that just 'Fame' for idiots?

Actually, wasn't 'Fame' just 'Fame' for idiots?

I'll just watch one more episode of Dexter and THEN I'll go for a wee/to the supermarket/rejoin the human race.

I have the full box set of all seasons (the one with velvet box and bullet holed case). I haven't started it yet. It teases me. I play along. One day though, I'll crack.

Radge said...

Jenniky - I've never seen Dexter. One of these I will, turning my flat into even more of a urine soaked heckhole.

Holemaster - Be vigilant. It is all-consuming.

You've watched The Wire, right?

I'm about to finish season 2 of The Sopranos (after a brief sojourn where we binged on Six Feet Under) and looking forward to the rest of it, as I'm under the impression that it just keeps getting better.

I wonder sometimes if the whole DVD boxset thing is just inherently addictive in itself, regardless of the standard of its content. Like, would I sit there and watch 12 episodes of The Hills back to back if I was bored enough?

Radge said...

Six Feet Under is well worth bingeing on - only equalled by The Sopranos and West Wing, for me.

Oh, and The Wire. Yeah, I've seen the whole thing, its brilliance isn't in doubt.

Not sure about your last point, though. Don't think I could watch The Hills under any circumstance, box-set or no. Same for Desperate Housewives (shite) and Grey's Anatomy (shiter).

Proshoot and Gobbagool Tony, Oh Madone!

Whatever to fuck gobbagool is anyway.

Radge said...

Cue a fuckload of pausing to put on the subtitles. Sounds like Madone but it is Madonna, be assured. I know these things. You gonna argue with me? YOU GONNA FUCK WITH ME TERENCE?
