Actually a serious interview

H 10

A captured moment from last year, in front of a local renowned restaurant
an alsatian restaurant owner interviewed for a television program.
The theme had relations to restaurant and food business.
It’s fun to see the diversity of the recordings and so actual see the spot in the program.

To see the preparations diversity of the finished result.

Filming took about twenty minutes and the done spot perhaps twenty seconds.

Inspired from Paula’s Thursday’s Special this week “Diversity


O like Onslow


The tell a letter-story challenge by idea of the good “frizztext
now the time has come to the letter “O”. 

I’m sitting here completely surrounded by no beers” (Onslow)

Onslow is a fictional character in the british 1990s comedy series
Keeping Up Appearances” portrayed by actor Geoffrey Hughes 
Onslow is a working class relative of the social-climbing snob, Hyacinth Bucket (pronounced bouquet) 
Onslow is married to Hyacinth’s sister Daisy; their surname is never mentioned.

Onslow is also a football fan, presumably of Everton FC as he comes from Merseyside, and dislikes Liverpool FC – so much so that he felt ready to divorce Daisy when she revealed on their honeymoon that she supported Liverpool FC.

Onslow is everything his sister-in-law Hyacinth despises, and threatens her social-climbing efforts – he is an overweight and unemployed man who earns his money through betting on horses, spends his time drinking beer, eating crisps and smoking cigarettes, and watching television – on many occasions he watches horse racing, and one of the repeated elements of comedy is his method of operating his ancient TV set by banging on it – Onslow describes himself as “work-shy, bone idle, and out of condition” and has been known to ponder “the inconvenience of working” – whenever Onslow is unpleasantly surprised by something, such as running out of beer or being insulted, he usually retorts with his sarcastic catchphrase: “Oh, nice!” – he habitually wears a baseball cap with the FH logo of New Zealand earth-moving and road construction company Fulton Hogan.

Although he watches television endlessly, Onslow also reads substantially, especially in the bedroom (where he never changes out of the usual vest and jeans he wears throughout the day), and considers himself something of an intellectual – Onslow is surprisingly well-read and frequently raises technical or philosophical issues in normal conversations – he is seen many times reading “The Principles of Condensed Matter Physics”, “Life Among The Primitives”,” A Brief History of Time”, “The Financial Times”, and “The Racing Post” – he also watches “Open University” programmes.

Onslow and Daisy live in a run-down council house with Daisy’s promiscuous sister Rose, and the sisters’ senile father, called “Daddy” – Onslow owns a dog, who lives outside in the rusting carcass of a Hillman Avenger in the front garden, and who barks at Hyacinth whenever she visits, causing her to fall into the bushes.

The actor Geoffrey Hughes did a very well done work as Onslow
unfortunately died the actor earlier this year due to cancer
the character Onslow reminds a lot about another fictional character
namely “Andy Capp” – in Danish “Kasket Karl”
great that the 2 characters only fictional – imagine if they were in reality.

It is said that reality
beyond imagination – oh noooo..!



Travel Theme Animals

See animals at faraway exotic places
why travel for that, why risk my 9 lives
when remote and mobile phone is ready
and “Animal Planet” is on the screen.

This seems to be the concentrated cat’s thoughts, doesn’t it..?


With excellent inspiration from Ailsa’s blog
just look the challenge here “Where’s my backpack
my version of the theme “Animals


News start with N

The tell a letter-story challenge by idea of the good “frizztext
now the time has come to the letter “N”.

 It’s amazing that the amount of news that happens in the world every day
always just exactly fits the newspaper” (Jerry Seinfeld)

or 30 minutes on television – every day.

Perhaps the news is so far from reality
that it seriously to get attention must be breaking news
news, that’s the filler between the commercials.

If we were equally critical of news
as when we bought new pants
or meat at the butcher

the world would be a nicer place to be
instead we are just as critical

as when women buy shoes
or men buying ties
in other words almost uncritically

maybe it is too easy to be news provider
almost a little PR, marketing or just spin doctor.

Near and Far
“Near and Far, more than a story of testing”
and not a “trial” of right and wrong

News from near and far (away) read by a younger “Le Drake Noir” 

A television itself has a huge power potential whether like it or not
before television came into the living room
then people had a finger on the pulse of the surrounding area
and had no idea what was happening in the big wide world
or only limited and delayed knowledge.

After television came into the living room
so people have a finger on the pulse of the big wide world
and have no idea what is happening in the surrounding area
 or only limited and delayed knowledge.

If looking out through the window – so it is a completely alien world seen
today there are longer go down to the curb than to the moon.

Near turn into far and far into near.

In the early 1960s had my young parents as some of the first in our neighborhood bought a television, it was really exciting and hot new, everyone think that – remember as a little “duckling” that the house was always full of happy people evening after evening – came by to watch TV, talk and drink coffee – remember the time as very pleasant.

Many are sitting today alone in front of their television – where the only communication is (if they are lucky) next day at the bus, shopping or at work – to find like-minded so they can discuss the stupid programs with them and talk about waste of money looking at it




The man on the moon

The last step for the man on the moon

 With all respect to Michael Jackson,
there’ll never be more than one real moonwalker.

RIP Neil Armstrong, the real moonwalker

 Neil Armstrong was one of my few heroes – although he had been a Navy fighter pilot, a test pilot for NASA’s forerunner and an astronaut, then Neil Armstrong never allowed himself to be caught up in the celebrity and glamour of the space program – he never be someone else than Neil Armstrong – “I am, and ever will be, a white socks, pocket protector, nerdy engineer,” Neil Armstrong said as late as in february 2000 in one of his rare public appearance. “And I take a substantial amount of pride in the accomplishments of my profession.” – every single one who lived that summer day in 1969, will never forget him and I think mostly every one remembering it as was it last sunday it happens.

“It suddenly struck me that that tiny pea, pretty and blue, was the Earth – I put up my thumb and shut one eye, and my thumb blotted out the planet Earth – I didn’t feel like a giant – I felt very, very small” (Neil Armstrong
“I think we’re going to the moon because it’s in the nature of the human being to face challenges – it’s by the nature of his deep inner soul… we’re required to do these things just as salmon swim upstream” (Neil Armstrong)
“It’s a brilliant surface in that sunlight – the horizon seems quite close to you because the curvature is so much more pronounced than here on earth – it’s an interesting place to be,  I recommend it” (Neil Armstrong)
In the summer of 1969 – “Le Drake Noir” was 9½, only a duckling, and my little brother only 2 years old at that time – a large number of hours was used that summer between the 2 brother talking about what was going on soon on the moon.
We were very committed and all opportunities for information was vacuumed into the head of the 2 boys – danish and german newspapers were read so the ink faded – the bigger boy read aloud to the little boy – TV with one danish channel (there were not more) and 3 german was monitored together, where the bigger boy translated for the smaller boy. 
 It was so exciting.
By the way, I forgot to mention – so we besides got a little sister the day before Armstrong had to land on the moon – our mother was in the hospital and our father was a happy man and asked if we wanted to go in to see our newborn sister – a totally silly question
 of course we had no time to spend on that kind of things – we should see Neil Armstrong  then our father must drive alone to see our newborn little sister – besides so children at that time wasn’t allow visiting hospitals except when they were sick 
so we had nevertheless to stand outside and looked through the window,
looking for mum and the newborn sister inside.

Vælgere og tv’seere som ulønnede terapeuter

for alle “look a like” wanna be’erne

medierne skaber (u)bevidst en masse medieludere

hvor tangen opmærksomheden nærmest er invaliderende for nogle

som spritterens trang efter sprut

Der er vist også et sammenfald i opmærksomhedsbehovet
