Richard Herring is a racist

Hitler Moustache - Avalon ©2009 www.richardherring.comYesterday’s Guardian published a piece by Brian Logan which illustrated how comedians such as Richard Herring and Scott Capurro are inherently racist and offensive.

Scott Capurro often offends his audience, he tells Logan he can justify that because an audience doesn’t often get a chance to inform the performer that they are ‘fucked up’.

Interviewing Mr T

Mr T explaining his hairAmongst people with Macbooks and laptops in the NFT's cafe I sat scribbling onto a sheet of A4 in an embarrassingly low-tech fashion. The sheet happened to be a map with the location of the venue for a Snickers ad campaign launch in London Bridge.

Behind the scenes

I've decided to take this blog in a slightly different direction. While this is subject to whim, hopefully I’ll have enough material to sustain it.
With growing up comes a dwindling desire to be angry and ranty about what I now view to be the trivialities of the world at large, and these people or issues aren't generally worth the energy or the space they end up occupying on the internet's hard drive. That said, I’m almost definitely going to contradict myself in the near future.

Anyway, what is this new direction? The plan is to chart the observations and experiences of a fairly normal person (me) as they (I) attend industry events, launches, and interview the famous people. Think of it as a background to the articles I write for other websites, or a blog version of Moving Wallpaper and Echo Beach if you will; but on a better channel, and with no Jason Donovan.

To keep things interesting, given that it is summer; we decided to go with the common cold. As males we know how devastating this can be, with days of unrelenting torment and an extra 15 minutes added to getting up rituals spent futilely pumping enough drugs and various homeopathic remedies into our bodies until we feel we can connect with the outside world.
