Week Twenty

Hello everyone. Really sorry for being practically non-existent on here for a month, but like I said before I am no crazy autograph hunter and what with being a full-time student, and now having a part-time job to fit in, I have other stuff to prioritise. However, I still have one eye on this and I have been meaning to update for a while, so here’s a quick post just to assure you all that I am not dead.

I was meaning to meet up with Jane Lucas (Sheila) last month during my study weeks and get another signature, but my new job started just before and it ruled out my weekends indefinitely, so that had to be cancelled. Rubbish. I have also emailed Martin Freeman’s agent but obviously they ignored me. Might try again when I’m bored, and I also need to find Lucy Davis’ agent. I’ll get there. Eventually.

Apologies again, and I’ll try not to leave it another month before I post again.


Ricky Gervais on ‘Louie’

Here’s a clip from 2010 when Ricky Gervais made an appearance in Louie. Hilarious. Makes it all the funnier that you know they’re mates in real life. How can procrastination be bad when I stumble across comedy gems like this?

Ricky Gervais on Family Guy

Here’s a link to Unofficial Gervais, with a video showing Ricky’s appearance in the latest episode of Family Guy. It aired in the states recently but we may have to wait a little while for it over here in the UK. What do you think? Can’t say it’s the funniest thing he’s done, but certainly worth a watch, and who can blame him for wanting to be on Family Guy. But if I was him I think I would rather do a cameo, that could have been much funnier, in my opinion, which doesn’t mean a lot to anyone, but there you go. See you later.


Ricky Gervais Superbowl Ad

I didn’t watch the Superbowl and I live in Britain, so is it ok for me to completely miss what this ad featuring Ricky is all about? I’m assuming it is something to do with technology, or high definition something-or-other. If someone can clarify I would be most grateful. Thanks!

TEN MINUTES LATER: Oh ok I get it now, he’s advertising Time Warner Cable. I really should pay more attention to the people uploading this. Anyway, here’s a longer ad on their YouTube profile:

Golden Globes Review

I think I should probably cap off all these Golden Globes posts by adding this. Consider it a little footnote. I contribute occasionally to a blog called Containing Multitudes, which is written by the American Studies department at the University of East Anglia, and they put my little review of the Golden Globes up there so give it a little read and check out the other posts too. What were your thoughts on the Globes? And what were your thoughts on Ricky? If you still haven’t seen it I have been kind enough to include a video of all his bits, courtesy of someone else via YouTube.
