a saturday thank you to
for this world of calder.

posted alongside the monty python
on life with the other half.

(i also think the excellent golden smith 
is winning my imaginary race for
the most awesome blog header:)


just in case anyone reading is yet 
to discover the delights of dylan moran, this ouno post is great.
the clip posted introduces a high point in the art of insult: "pissmidget".

i have since been watching black books episodes on you tube. 
this is one with first franny then bernard faking their piano skills
via manny playing inside said piano with spoons. 
at one stage franny is talking to bernard's random date,
on the topic of bernard's skills in the arts.
you probably need to watch it, but this dylan moran line superb:

"You! What did you say to Kate? She thinks I'm the Renaissance!"

and then:

"I have to go along with all this reclusive genius stuff... 
She's going to be very upset when she finds out I'm a reclusive wanker."
