Anyway, my haul from the wonderful jhp1608...
Anything Chris Morris or Armando is ALWAYS greatly appreciated...was actually looking for a reason to update my 2004 copy that I could spin past the wife...problem solved!!
Deeply annoyed I missed the theatrical run of Lynch's 'The Art Life'...now with this and the Twin Peaks Blu, I have more Lynch than a sane person should be asked to handle...
and the 'piece de resistance'...the Lego 'Young Ones' is going to greet everyone in my entrance hall/ stairway!
...Thank you SO much!...(you utter, utter, utter, utter BRILLIANT BLOKE!!...)
Really glad they have arrived safe, and relieved you like them.
I'm sorry I got you something you already had, though. I cottoned on to the fact you are a fan of Chris Morris, and I thought "The Day Today" was a sensible middle-ground between Brasseye which I think you said you'd watched recently, and deeper cuts that I couldn't testify to being any good. Hope you can find a use for it.
For the US Chewers who may know something of Morris through Four Lions or Brass Eye, and who know Armando Iannucci, The Day Today was basically their TV debutante moment, as well as the first sighting of Alan Partridge. As news satire from the early 90s, it's not directly topical any more, although nothing really ever changes and it still has the characteristic Morris and Iannucci wit.
I'm also very happy you like the Lego Young Ones. It was bordering on juvenile, but it also seemed to represent things that are worth being nostalgic over. Once I saw it, I couldn't really not take the risk of getting it!
