Just idling here . . . . I wonder where all those fashionable pretend biker ladies black leather jackets are now?
Everywhere weren’t they? Even that couple of blimmey-we-were-off-focus-but-thanks-to-baking-we’re-back-in-vogue couple could be seen, er . . . squeezing into the things for interviews, or to regale us with their hilarious personnas.
Most of them at the bottom of wardrobes I guess, next stop Landfill.
Watching channel 4’s coverage of President Trumps press outing tonight, they descibe his performance as “rambling”.
Funny that, as one of the subjects Trump aired was the media themselves – how they twist, lie, dramatise trivia, eulogize trivia and trivial people – just as they do, daily, here in the UK.
Don’t get me wrong – I’m as concerned as the next man about Mr Trump – but you get his point don’t you? A far fairer assessment of his style today might have read “conversational”. I guess that’s not dramatic enough.
Intense sadness in the marketing world as the olde worlde “as you do” and “my bad” – together with the “ffwwwoooosh sound, (coupled with hand showing something just said went “clean over their head”) showing rapid ageing signs.
Even “bring it on” as touted by the Tesco Christmas TV advert – a mere five weeks ago is already looking a bit frayed round the edges, and “get in” – positively pedestrian, despite the pull of its ‘Almost American’ undertones.
“It’s reet bugger getting a handle on just what the dudes are saying these days, man” – complained Tristan Haarwelle, corporate head of Aspirational Music and Heart-tugging images‘ at Weller, Weller and Spin – despite such items as the teeth-grindingly cringe-making “to be fair” gaining ground nationally.
“If fings get much worse, we’ll be playing the sound of American attack helicopters over every blasted advert, just to shock the buggers into buying” he added – “seems to work in the movies don’t it?”
