“I don’t know to run a newspaper Mr. Thatcher, I just try everything I think of.”
Citizen Kane — pfft; a tedious, sedate and simplistic narrative. The free-range media story playing out just now is a far superior, satisfying and grandiose entertainment. I’ve literally bounced up and down in my seat and cackled with sheer joy more than once in recent days. I’m lovin’ it!
You may be interested to know that due to irreconcilable differences my long-term relationship with my dvd burner has been terminated. I’ve since shacked up with a cute little external slimline number. We got off to a troubled start because of it’s obstinacy in rejecting my regular brand of blank dvd’s, but we’ve reached an accommodation with each other in that regard and this very day I sent off a selection of its produce to the deep north.
I reckon one of those tellies you could slot a dongle in would be the way to go. They shoulda been making them years ago.
I got me a slot on me set top box for stickin’ me dongles in. It’s ace. Way awesomer than discs. By the time Ross gets hisself a computer, but, even that’ll be old tech.
Can you get a digital hard drive recorder that has a dongle slot for movies?
Since when did I become Tongues’ resident gadget geek guy?
I don’t know so much about this shit, but I’d guess yeah, you can get a HD recorder with a USB thingo. I think they tend to be expensive but, and with a no-HD set top box (or tele) with USB slot you can just plug one of those little external hard drives in and record TV or play your illegally downloaded movies which you’ve transferred onto your little HD from your computer.
Or at least, that’s what I’m led to believe the criminal classes do.
I haven’t got a clue what you just said.
Nor I. Let’s hope stace doesn’t pay too much attention.
Ross. It’s just a slot. You stick a dongle in it and the movie starts.
It’s just the most joyous thing to behold, cNm. I can’t wait for the BBC series – I think Michael Gambon could play Murdoch (if he lost a few pounds), Tilda Swinton for Brooks and Guy Pearce for James.
And, thank you for your impending package, I look forward to it.
BTW, I heartily recommend Sofia Coppola’s last film, “Somewhere” which I viewed on the weekend. It was most excellent.
Murdoch would muscle his mate James Cameron into the directorship of that movie and pull another swifty on us. Nuh-uh, this needs to be an underground guerrilla production with Gollum as Rupert, Bette Davis as Rebeka and Peter Lorre as James. Also, Ellen Page would play the gregarious but bored girl-next-door — a fictional character, but… y’know.
Venus Williams as Wendy Deng and Serena Williams as Hugh Grant. Hugh Grant as David Cameron, Charles Laughton as Gordon Brown, Peter Pan as Tony Blair and a bunch of zombies as the parliamentary panel of inquiry.
Funding will pour in!
Brrrrrrrring me the head of Rrrrrrrrrrrrupert Murdoch….
….Heads on pikes! Heads on pikes!
Well, those british pollies sure hit the Murdochs about with a small wet hanky.
