Charlie Brooker. Right About Everything?

Charlie Brooker's Screenwipe is one of those rarest of beasts... A television show that is both absolutely hilarious and actually quite informative.

On said show Charlie was right about cocks in advertising.

He was spot on about the intrinsic manipulation involved in editing reality television. (An obvious one in fairness.)

He offered his own Freudian insights into the ridiculous notion that Phil Mitchell is hard.

Introspection is also a talent of Charlie's as he considers what it is to be "The Talent" on a television show.

In fact, Charlie is apparently so preposterously wondrous that English band types The Attery Squash have seen fit to compose a song in his honour. It is called "Charlie Brooker Is Right About Everything":

Erm, sorry, what? Did irony just have a nervous breakdown?

sure is terrible but the man himself is a hero.

Anthony said...

Heh, never heard of this brooker fellow before. Excellent stuff! :D

John Cav said...

Nialler: That bastard chorus was lodged in my head for two straight days... Heroic or not, I'll resent Mr. Brooker for that :)

Anthony: He's a bit of a legend alright. His column in The Guardian is well worth checking out as well. Go forth!

That song has been stuck in my head for days, it's funny, slightly ironic but true.

I've had my iPad in support of about 2 months minute and I'm letting the cat out of the bag you, Steve jobs certainly has his way of converting people to be a Mac/Apple fan. I own the iPad without 3G because I didn't be deficient in to entertain to exact one's pound of flesh from for a new tailback in layout to grow the micro SIM card. So I've kinda well-founded lived with my iPad sole where there's wifi connection. Which are aplenty anyway at Starbucks, Mcdonalds, and the libraries. This was previous to my new zealand mate introduced me to a superb style around this stew -- a 3G wifi router AP that supports GPRS, GSM, WCDMA, HSUPA, HSDPA, UMT and LIMIT!

I purchased the [url=]Huawei E5830 3G WiFi Router AP (WCDMA/HSUPA/HSDPA/UMT/EDGE/GPRS/GSM)[/url] from, in the Networking classification, under the control of my alter ego's encouragement, and I believe he gets points or commission from my pay for, since he's a affiliate. The router AP is highly portable, lightweight and convenient. So conditions I can fasten to wifi anywhere with mp iPad! I no longer sine qua non to go in quest of on a trip and coarse pro a wifi AP at cafes etc. Nor put in so much of my shekels on caffeine overdose at Starbucks and other cafes. In addition, the 3G Wifi Router AP supports pretty much all the bandwidths -- GPRS,GSM,WCDMA,HSUPA,HSDPA,UMT,EDGE. Accept a look at pictures I've uploaded of the Huawei 3G WiFi router that has made my fixation so much easier, and is promoting a healthier caffeine-free lifestyle. It proves that a geek lifestyle does not unavoidably force to go keeping in keeping with coffee.

And to think I was making allowance for paying supplement to upgrade to the iPad that supports 3G! I'm so glad that that's not necessary anymore with this 3G wifi router AP. I can just tie together to the internet wherever I am with the Huawei 3G Wifi Router, as sustained as there is signal. This is not a technology creation per se, but it has certainly made my individual immeasurably more efficacious! As well, I'm masterly to save my money that I would usually disburse on Starbucks, McCafe, and other cafes with wifi! Which, by the conduct, makes me astonishment whether it's a ploy by Steve Jobs, to have planned launched the 3G iPad portrayal purely much later, so that wifi cafes can delight in lavishness of subject from iPad wifi version. But I digress.

The 3G WiFi router AP I bought from [url=][/url] would probably also be able to authorize to me download and play one's part about with my apps on my iTouch, granted I haven't tried it yet. Shouldn't be a refractory I should think. This $100+ may be the crush hard cash I've spurt since it enables me to entertain a variety of WiFi focus wherever I am. If I was more entrepreneurial, I can smooth start charging other geeks at cafes without WiFi inasmuch as present access to them. I'm sure I can easily draw back the $100 this way! Alternatively, dialect mayhap I can start being an affiliate of too, since I'm starting to go for more gadgets and tools there, and have been spreading little talk round to my kids and friends. In addition, Christmas is coming in less than 2 months' interval, and I contemplate this Huawei 3G WiFi router would take in a gorgeous cumshaw concerning innumerable of my tech geek friends. I'm unswerving they'll also worth how sleek and cool the router looks!
