I wish people would do this more. A lot of people who define themselves as not being homophobic actually do homophobic things very often. if they took a look at what they were saying and perhaps thought of the gay people they knew as they said things they would realise how rude they are being.
The video shows 7 hours of video (i think that is the 2 series) cut into 15mins. genius. a good tester to see if you like pulling. in my opinion if you don’t you are a dick.
As Karen is my idol in life i have to write out one of her quotes / scenes below which is featured in the 15 min video.
Karen after a one night stand talking to her mate. the man she had just shagged is in the corner of the room and her mate asks her how the sex was: “i have had more fun putting my knickers on, a man with a cock that size should at least have the decency to not fart as he comes, i said to him you can stop trying to joke your way out of it that is the tiny, that is insulting, that is pointless, meatless and quite frankly it is making me feel queasy” her mate says “so you didn’t have sex then?” Karen says “well yeah i did, but out of pity” then she turns to the guy she just shagged and says “and don’t look at me like that, you should be grateful”
its the whole series in 15 mins. fucking great.
I bloody love this. “do you think I enjoy listening to you talking about your fucking grandaughter, ole muggings ere, listening to you drone on about your fucking spoilt grandaughter and her fucking bike”
i think i modelled my current personality on tanya franks’s Karen from the TV show pulling. brilliant. buy it it will be the funniest programme you have seen.
The Curious incident of the dog in the night time - Mark Haddon
You are 15, you have autism / Aspergers, you dislike poo and the colour brown, you are fabulous at maths, that you find easy, its people that are hard, your mother is dead, or so you think, you live with your dad, one day you find next doors dog is dead killed with a garden folk you become a suspect… all of this leads Christopher Boone on a journey to discover how this dog died, what had happened. On this journey Christopher’s world opens up and much of the things he thought he knew vanish from underneath him, but he also learns a lot too and discovers that he can do so many things.
I loved this book, it is a book written from the perspective of Christopher and is just so interesting to read. I definitely recommend it! Plus it has gone down to £5.16 in amazon which means it is a total bargain! get it here: http://www.amazon.co.uk/The-Curious-Incident-Dog-Night-time/dp/0099450259
When I was Five I Killed myself - Howard Buten
So I had just got paid, I was browsing amazon and I started to look at books Amazon was recommending for me. This one caught my eye, it was cheap. When the book arrived I knew why it had been so cheap, it was a mini book it looked like it was means for a borrower or midget, and had lots of German writing all over it. To say I was sceptical about the fact that I would enjoy this book was an understatement.
I picked up the book and read the foreword which tells you why the book has German in it (The author signed a deal that meant he couldn’t release it properly in the English language - or some such problem - it was all rather quite sad and is the reason why it isn’t a well known book in English speaking countries but in France and the rest of the continent it is practically seen as there very own catcher in the rye - J.D Salinger).
So I started the actual book, I loved it, the writing is just fantastic, the character is so believable the voice is spot on. The way the author has written the book is in such a way that you are transported into Burton Rembrandt 8 year old mind. The sentence structure the use and confusion of words absolutely make it, it is all so amazingly put together, I could not put the book down, I wanted to know more about what this 8 year old boy thought. In fact I have to say the book is one of the best things I have ever read, it is a revelation and I recommend for everyone to read it, I defy you not to become addicted to reading it and finishing it in record time.
The story revolves around a boy that ends up in a children’s mental hospital. for a long time you do not know why, it slowly unravels as you read the book. Because of the way the book is written you find yourself caring about Burton very quickly and your mind rushes trying to work out how he ended up there and worry about the predicament he is in. As you slowly start to find out you will find the subject matter is not easy by any stretch of the imagination but the writing simply makes it so absolutely astonishing, in reality a Taboo was broken but you find yourself asking yourself questions about what you think. You definitely end up thinking none of it was this poor 8 year old boys thought though.
