I'm watching "Ibiza Closing Parties Festival Special" amd the
presenter, who I've never seen before, is clearly half cut. Do any
of the young people here think this is cool, or do they just think
But today's young people like Russell Brand don't they?
I like Russell Brand. I think he's on cocaine when he performs, and I think
it might make for a better performance. But drunk presenters we don't need.
The woman wasn't doing the job noticeably badly, but you could just tell
from the way she was moving her mouth when she wasn't speaking that she had
had a few.
Ah, you didn't say "she".
This is normal girl behaviour I understand, being drunk.
And the slightly nerdy guy from Sin Cities has set a bit
of a precedent for it as well.
My experience of cocaine is so far from the norm I simply
won't comment other than to say, yes, I got this impression
from Russell Brand too, and it's a shame as he seems to
need it simply to read from an autocue.
Suffice it to say it didn't involve cocoa, or herbal tea
and, in all fairness, I'm generally in-your-face enough
in real life that there really isn't too much point and
I much prefer the immersion and absorption and focus a
few spliffs gives me to get on with a task in hand or a
Obviously, in radio, you can rehearse between takes as you
are there to play music, well on Radio 2 you are, and only
need disclose the presence of the considerable team of back-
room boys and girls who do your actual research and gag-
writing if you feel it will enhance the show or if they're
threatening to leave over pay and conditions.
Just odd that something people who really hardly know
one another at all will take at dinner parties so that
they feel confident enough to engage in conversation in
the first place, and are witty enough not to require a
Heimlich manouvre to disgorge their own ankle bones at
the end of the night, and he still fluffs his autocues,
even with the benefit of it...
....then again I had heard good things about Russell Crowe
and maybe part of it with Russell Brand is it took me a
little while to realise it's not him. But yeah, he comes
on my screen and my screen shows something else. Simple.
He's very much up himself and this has been my perception
of cokies generally--and so often more moth than trousers.
