some lehrer gems. nasty, sharp, most of all wise. 

"The real issues I don’t think most people touch. The Clinton jokes are all about Monica Lewinsky and all that stuff and not about the important things, like the fact that he wouldn’t ban land mines… I’m not tempted to write a song about George W. Bush. I couldn’t figure out what sort of song I would write. That’s the problem: I don’t want to satirise George Bush and his puppeteers, I want to vaporize them."

"If, after hearing my songs, just one human being is inspired to say something nasty to a friend, or perhaps to strike a loved one, it will all have been worth the while.

"With audiences nowadays I see it with these late-night [TV show] people, Jay Leno, David Letterman and so on the audience applauds the jokes rather than laughs at them, which is very discouraging.

"Laughter is involuntary. If it’s funny you laugh. But you can easily clap just to say [deadpan]: ‘A ha, that’s funny, I think that’s funny.’ Sometimes they cut to the audience and you can see they are applauding madly. But they’re not laughing."

soweto time!

brummie/londoner jazz mc, cool man about the town.

interesting interview, listing the musicians that inspired him. which i helpful for a jazz novice like me, because now i can look them all up! find some new people to obsess about. but in the meantime, this video ends with soweto freestyling. highlight: rapping about our crappy train service.

soweto kinch. a people with no past.

generic boyfriend material who looks a bit like a wet liam gallagher: “why me?”

princess/geeky girl: “because you saw me when i was invisible”

red knick knacks. but who cares about them. its all about the socks. new supply of socks is desperately needed for autumn isnt it? mum prefaces everything with interview- nowadays. 

youll need nice new interview dresses. interview rain coat. interview lippy. everything is excusable in the name of the all sacred interview.
