Good stuff! Also I love hipsters who claim to find Nathan Barley funny rather than admitting it kills them inside

Ah yes... now THAT'S why I got out of London... or at least it's nice to not have to see those types with quite such frequency. Unfortunately the psycho I was living with (a woman of very limited imagination who vividly illustrated the folly that one should never let the size of a lady's bosom blind you to her evil ways) admired such people and made several attempts to mold me into a complete knob of that type. Unfortunately though I refused to get rid of my nine million "sad" Doctor Who books (she set me the task of getting rid of five a week as a 'self-improvement exercise'... to no avail), preferred to wear non-wanky clothes, and I've always hated parties. So even if it wasn't a lot of fun for me, there's some compensation in it also being three years of her pointless life down the shitter.

Lordy. I'm surprised I didn't end up topping myself. Dark fucking days.

They're just kids, they are stuck in the high school mentality of trying to prove themselves to their peers via superficial bullshit, because they haven't yet developed any sense of actual self worth through achievement (usually because trust funds have led them to sit on their arses doing fuck all), so instead their life becomes this rather desperate 24/7 attempt at projecting an image...

Contrary to what most of them believe about themselves, they're deeply unsophisticated (hence constant pop culture references to 80s kids tv - they're not being ironic, they really don't have much knowledge of any other culture!), and have very little to say - hence all these online VICE style mags that are jam packed with petty social criticisms ("this town is crap" "10 types of arsehole", etc) rather than interesting, informed opinions & perspectives....

They think they're an elite, but the reality is their circles are rarified because only other dickheads will hang out with them! Laughing I'd pay good money to be a fly on the wall when they each finally realise the reality of their situation

I've never seen "Nathan Barley"- Sad -given Morris and Brooker's
involvement, I reckon I'd enjoy it.

I liked it, though maybe like isn't really the right word. It's pretty painful to watch, and I can imagine the knobs its aimed at not quite getting that its about them.

Nathan Barley is pretty painful viewing, but also very satisfying. It's basically the "CUNT" bits of TVgohome, fleshed out into a series

The compilation book is pricey but very much worth it

I think 'Wanking for Coins' was my own personal favourite. Very Happy

Oh... and "Shit Film Liker" magazine.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/TV-Go-Home-Charlie-Brooker/dp/0571272193/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1284813821&sr=1-1

There's many hours of it in this book. Pretty much a belly laugh every other sentence.

Also liked 'Moo Moo I'm a Cow' - can't be bothered to look it up but the blurb was something like "unrealistic children's programme based upon the implausible premiss that animals will tell you what they are called having made their characteristic noise twice."

I used to read the site regularly a few years back, but I began to find it a bit relentless and disturbing. I suspected Charlie Brooker of not being wholly ironic in the unpleasantness of the imaginary predicaments which he created for people.
