I think the The Disposable Heroes of Hiphoprisy answered this best back in 1992:

Although it's not exactly new. And possibly it's being replaced by t'internet. Which, y'know, given the events of this week, is probably a good thing. On that subject...

I have a brief comment on the Obama election. It's a story about a man who captured the hopes of the nation, made an appeal for change, won an election by mobilising a massive coalition of disparate influence groups, uniting them for a common purpose who went on to win seats all over the country, including in places that were previously thought unwinnable for his party. A lawyer, he and his young family were a refreshing alternative to the tired right wing Govt that they voted out.

Mr President Elect Obama sir? If you turn into another fucking Tony Blair, the entire world will be very disappointed in you. I voted for that git, I supported that git. He broke his promises and let me down. Don't be a git sir, we're depending on you.

Domestic bliss?


This morning, [livejournal.com profile] miss_s_b did take young [livejournal.com profile] shrublette to school, then went into town and did some shopping in Tesco. She bought a loaf of bread, more classic Doctor Who poseable action figure (we're very close to getting the whole Robot now, yay!) and a big bag of five custard doughnuts. I then took her to work. At lunch today, I did eat one of the doughnuts and felt a bit guilty about it. This evening, I picked her up from work, we went to former Cllr Yates's house to get his name at the top of our petition, then I dropped her home so I could go back to her work to pick up her Dad and give him a lift home.

When I got home, I offered to make tea. Quoth she:
I'm not hungry actually. I've eaten all the doughnuts
She has as well, the greedy pig.

Next time she complains about putting on weight? Suggest she might like to stop eating all the doughnuts...

Love you darlin'
Look! I get to make a reaction post. It's the first time I've had access to a TV for an initial broadcast for, well, since before they brought it back. So, in the absence of anything constructive to actually say, I thought I'd poll it good:
[Poll #957738]
I liked it. It was nice, straightforward, fun. Let's see if they can maintain it into Bill Shakespeare's England. Hmm, I have the perfect icon for a post that mentions Bill.

ETA: [livejournal.com profile] who_daily, here:
Oh, and because this is my first go, and it's taken me fricking HOURS, and Horatio Must Be Appeased... I'm totally going to abuse the Editor's Choice and pick [livejournal.com profile] matgb's reaction poll. Because, you know, polls are good. And I want to see more people voting for Freema's arse.
*Suspects this might get the most votes I've ever had in a poll*
The whole "not having a TV" thing? It's still fine. There are rarely any shows I want to watch, the only one currently that I'd like to be watching is Torchwood, and the DVDs will be out soon. I know that feedback has been, shall we say, mixed? But overall, I'm looking forward to watching it just to find out if it's as good/bad as people are saying. Given that it seems to be the same people saying both good and bad, doubly so.

So, instead of actually watching it, directly, I watch it by proxy; thanks friends list! From [livejournal.com profile] rowanberries weekly liveblog, through to [livejournal.com profile] calapine's more reasoned analysis, there's always a good summary fairly quickly. Then others, such as [livejournal.com profile] nhw will review it, and I get a bit more of a fix. But there's always a bit of a delay. Then [livejournal.com profile] elephantfeed updates. Like it just did:
I said before that Torchwood hadn't decided what it was about yet. In this episode, I think it has. Torchwood is about Life after Death.
So, Richard thinks it's all about life after death, that this episode linked the series together and made the rest make sense, and also told me that Gwen is played by Gwyneth's actress. This I didn't know. So suspicions of a link between them would make more sense, and Richard thinks Jack thinks Gwen is in some way special. Anyone out there got a differing opinion?
