    'One of (Lucas) Cranach's masterpieces, discussed by (Joseph) Koerner, is in it's self-referentiality the perfect expression of left-hemisphere emptiness and a precursor of post-modernism. There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    "Suppose it didn't," said Pooh, after careful thought.
    Piglet was comforted by this.

    I like British Sitcoms.

    I think they're kind of silly, plus I know that sitcoms in the UK are made/written slightly different to sitcoms in the US, in general.
    In the UK, the writer writes a script, it gets edited with various drafts and filmed.
    In the US, the writer writes a script, it gets edited with various drafts and filmed, and during filming, rewrites can happen on set, for better gags... That doesn't really happen in the UK.

    I think British sitcoms 'like the two I'm going to mention' define to me, that sense of humour that's typically British, like, doing something stupid and taking the P***/Mick out of something.

    I'm going to mention two favourites of mine.

    Red Dwarf, and this other one that, as a child, I didn't watch much, but as I got older, found myself liking it; Blackadder.

    Please stop reminding people he's British. There's so little dialogue in his shite we've managed to convince the rest of the world he's really German.

    Here's one you won't have seen/probably won't understand.

    Miranda is an occaisional guilty pleasure purely for the silliness.

    The High Life, from the time before Cumming went to Holywood.
    Fabulously camp.
