Just leaving this here... [04 May 2012|09:59am]


Greetings from the US!

I made this silly little punk song to show my appreciation of this wonderful gentleman. This was all in good fun. Hope you enjoy it.

*squeeeeeeeeeeeeee* [20 Jan 2009|02:27pm]

I think i just found perhaps the CUTEST videos of Ian in the universe.
One from 1986!! Where Ian happens to look like this:

Watch it here and squee.

Then there is a whole half hour of Ian's episode of "Plunder" from 1991, where he talks about boarding school and watching love songs on Top of the Pops, quote: "I think thats when we realised we were heterosexual" and his time as a teacher and a stand up comedian. He even has time to insult the host of the show.

Part 1, Part 2, Part 3

WARNING: Watching these will make you feel young.

Ian on Parkinson 2002 [30 Oct 2008|12:55am]

[ mood | amused ]

Found this absoloutely fascinating interview with Ian on Parky back in '02.
Definitely worth a watch for some classic Paul bashing, small chat about fagging, and great stories about Private Eye & Peter Cook.
Oooh, and not to mention Question Time bust up with Lady Archer...!

Click here for the interview

clip of young Ian shown on Room 101 [08 Mar 2008|02:23am]

[ mood | hungry ]

I just had to share this. It's a clip of young (and still wondrously middle-age looking) Ian shown on Room 101.
Kirsty Young tries to put people who speak very quietly or loudly into room 101 and Paul's got a little clip to show. It's right at the beginning. And since not all of Paul's introduction is on there:

"OK. Well, we've got an example here I think. We've got the well known graveled-voiced balladeer Tom Waits. Here he is being interviewed by a journalist; unfortunately history has not recorded the name of the journalist, but have a look at this."

The clip.

My thoughts on this: Oh my god, the hair! Nice shiny shoes. Haha, pwned! And I don't know a lot about talk shows from that time but apart from their slouchy way of sitting, is that the audience mumbling so irritatingly in the background?

[ mood | hopeful ]

There is a small conversation going on on youtube about one of Ian's appearances on Question Time that made me wonder what you thought about the matter.


KenAugustino:> It is so funny how Ian looks during the intro cut-in!! I just could not judge whether he did it on purpose or else.

PaulMJohnson: I agree - he does looking furious better than almost anyone!

Turin999: on purpose
i can't tell if he's a political commentator first or a comedian first

And to be honest, neither can I!

I mean, I know that he can't really be classified as comedian but watching the video you'll notice that he simply cannot help but bring a bit of humour into it all.
Maybe that's also what satirists are like, serious but never really. Aren't they poking fun at everything after all?
You can probably call him a good mixture of both but still, what do you think about this? I'd love to know.

[ mood | chipper ]

I know that this community has been quiet for over a year and I should really wonder whether there's still anyone interested in it but that surely doesn't keep me from posting an entry. *grins*

And since I admittedly can't think of anything really stirring to write about I tried rather hard to come up with something - heck, anything - to raise hislop!love from the dead.

What I came up with is the most random thing.

TVTimes Article/Interview [30 May 2006|02:19am]

I found this amongst my college papers so I thought I'd share!

I don't think my parents were too impressed with me going to their house and ripping pages out of their TV times! Still.. worthy cause and all that! :)

I thought I might make myself useful as co-mod by actually doing something *laughs* So I've made some icons for the community, based on last week's HIGNFY... I hope it gets this community going a bit - I know that you all want to join ^_^ I'm going to try to make it a weekly thing, and post up nine icons every week using the new screencaps... I hope that you like them!
