Just watched...

...the last Look Around You and though the main thing still didn't connect with me, I absolutely loved the tiny snippet of info film about the 'hand birds' (apologies if that only makes sense to about three people). I'm sure that proves something, just not sure what. There's probably an extended analogy to made involving cups of tea. Either way, I'd much rather stuff with the courage of its convictions was around than heartless, gutless shit like The Friday Night Project.

Very odd website here. Not sure how much I like the actual art (lots of naked female-style people with odd eyes and creepy animals), but the intro page is fantastic - you can lose yourself clicking on every tiny element just to see what animates next. Couldn't find out who did the website design, but a small blue cat award on the way to them when I do.

Came to it via Making Light, by the way, not by Googling, you know... rudeness.

The Hall for Cornwall has a new playwriting competition, open to anyone living and working in Corwall/the South West. Closing date is 3rd May, which isn't far away, but the work only has to be between 15 and 25 minutes long, which makes it doable over a couple of weekends, I reckon. Any scripts entered will get a short written report by the end of August, so it's worth doing just for the feedback, I reckon.

I loved the hand birds. And another great performance from Mark Heap.

One of the most fun things about the series has been spotting famous faces and voices. Like Nick Frost in the most recent.

It was like being on a bad trip and time travelling at the same time. Must say, the cobble cream did make me chuckle.

Ah yes the Heap was good. And I liked the whole 'live' feel of the prog. And the way the studio was all brown. Sort of.

Didn't really hit the mark the way the first series did, but I also *LOVED* the hand birds.
