« not enough hours... | Main | in the most delightful way... »

Thursday, 21 July 2005


It looks like the autumn TV season has started a bit early; there aren't many programmes I'll make a point of watching but the return of Absolute Power was something I didn't want to miss. The writing is on a par with Yes Minister, although it was a bit of a surprise to see Nick Burns*, who I'd forgotten was in it (and appeared earlier this year as the remarkable Nathan Barley).

Also on tonight was Ricky Gervais's new (and frankly a little hyped for my tastes) Extras - I've not seen it yet, so I shall with-hold my judgement on whether it was any good.

Isn't it always the way that something will occur to you to look up when you're away from the internet, and by the time you get on-line, it's fallen off the back of your memory? It's probably just me, then. A few weeks ago, for example, Channel 4 saw fit to play the video exclusive of Oasis's next song The Importance of Being Idle. It was remarkably catchy (in a very "Kinks" way), and I really enjoyed the video. Today I finally remembered to find it it online - you can see it here (broadband WMV) (or here [dial-up Real Media]))

In fact, as well as Yahoo!'s extensive collection, there are plenty of places to get music videos on-line; even Channel 4 are doing 'em. I'm sure there are many more pop video sites out there - when I get the time I'll do the research.

Link of the day:

*(not the "Nick Burns - your company computer guy" (1MB Windows Media video) character from Saturday Night Live, I might add - he gives us IT engineers a bad name!)
