Untitled post with an unrelated picture of me in it

reflection.jpgThere's a documentary about Adam Ant on TV tonight. It's the first episode of a two-parter. But it's only on ITV London, which we don't get as a default channel. However, I have a sneaking feeling that I should be able to see it on channel no. 900-and-something on Sky. You just have to keep on going past all the porn channels and past about a dozen regional BBC variations and you'll find it tucked away there somewhere. Fingers crossed it'll work.

What's the name of the show? Well, you remember this post from September, where I mentioned the book, audio book, and CD compilation all called Stand & Deliver? Now they've made good on the promise of the DVD collection too, but have cut some of the most desirable tracks and retitled it from the sublime Digital Tenderness. They're calling it Stand & Deliver, with the same picture as those aforementioned three products. And the documentary tonight: Stand & Deliver.

For fuck's sake: I've got more imagination in the tip of my cock. Can you believe some lame-ass marketing motherfucker must've come up with this shit. FUCKWITS!

So, why not watch it if you can? You can laugh at how fat and psycho Adam looks these days. Yes, yes, I know it clashes with Night Watch on Film 4, which also came recommended by yours truly... Well you can't blame me for bad scheduling. That really is beyond my control.

Anyway, I'll probably try to do another post before the end of the day, since I think this probably isn't everyone's cup of tea. Good news about the DVD collection, though, isn't it? It's on my Christmas list.

Red: Don't be like that, my little chickadee! (You'll have fallen asleep before it starts anyway, I'm sure. xx)

Candy: Maybe I'll put it on a disc for you! Look forward to hearing about DOAP. I'm glad you enjoyed it.

LOSLI: I just don't know...

LDBug: Well, for one, they're probably rubbish softcore ones; and second, they're all pay per view.

Well then, Red and I can ridicule your fascination with Adam Ant some more!
Take it like a man, *

Why Adam Ant of all artists? I read a post you wrote some time ago, and it does make sense in a way, but you have some seriously strange taste in heroes.

Milla: Sure you can, Milla. I've put up with it for about 20 years or more, so it's fine! To be honest, it's not a fascination, but my enthusiasm for Adam flares up with the promise of new material or general Ant activity. I can go months without listening to or mentioning him, but this year has been a bit unusual.

Why he? I guess right time right place. I was 10, he was top of the pops. I got a bit older, listened to the older stuff, enjoyed the more subversive tones. He fell from the charts and went back to some of those older stylings. Now it's really the old stuff that us old Antfans want. the newer material really ain't all that, y'know. All right for a listen or two, but no staying power, unforch. But that's true of all artists anyway.
