A Recommendation

I loved this post by speedmetalsteve yesterday. Go and look at it, do.

This is my kind of humour, really, bloody-minded and English. There's a couple of chaps on my FB, who have quite significant Twitter* followings, both of whom write little faux-self-effacing, epifannyish bits of fluff that I find arch, unoriginal and frankly a bit twee. One in particular makes me want to shout, 'Grow some balls and stop spewing out all this flaccid cod-existential masculinity-in-crisis wank, you wimp'. I think their formative influences were comic books and shonky music journalism. The proper influences for comedy are Tommy Cooper and the Marquis de Sade. Comedy should be fuelled by impotent rage, not introspective ennui.
