Stewart Lee was once beaten up at a bus stop by an older boy at the same school for being sarcastic. For the entire duration of the beating, Stewart continued to be sarcastic and after the beating finished, Stewart sarcastically claimed intellectual victory in the bout.
—  From an old Lee & Herring article by schoolfriend James Clayton (apparently in retaliation for being publicly called out by Lee for owning a Marillion album)

what. is. happening.

It’s called young Richard wearing a tank top and one of his famous hippish necklace, and hair guitaring during a ….. karaoke session ? XD

This is from a book called “My Celebrity Boyfriend” by Liza Frank. Basically, she contacted a whole bunch of famous men and said “Look, I’m not a weirdo stalker, I’m doing a photography project. Can we take a photo together where it looks like we’re a couple - the set-up is entirely down to you? Again, I’m not a weirdo stalker and no one has thus far slapped me with a restraining order.”
It’s a really nice book, filled with loads of great photos (most of which do fulfil the criteria of “looks like a couple”). The one with Dexter Fletcher is very much a couple photo, as is the Alexander Siddig one. The Martin Freeman ones are hilarious. And Stewart Lee is in it. I LOVE STEWART LEE.
And of course, when Richard Armitage was contacted about participating in this project, you have to realise that he thought “GREAT, LET’S GET DOWN TO THE KARAOKE AND SING THE THEME TUNE FROM FRIENDS.”

:D

Today’s Conservatives rationalise everything by financial value. When I was still young, Mrs Thatcher toured St Hilda’s College, Oxford, and asked a girl what she studied. “Norse literature,” she said. “What a luxury,” replied the prime minister, anticipating the current government’s suspicion of humanities, but not anticipating the subsequent global financial value of the Lord of the Rings franchise. Fed by Tolkien’s study of Norse myth, the trilogy bled out of The Hobbit, which he originally wrote for a minority audience no bigger than that comprising his own bedtime children.

(Tolkien is, however, rumoured to have charged his offspring all their pocket money to hear the end of the tale, having already got them hooked. This “first hit’s for free” technique he learned dealing heroin to CS Lewis, who only began the Narnia chronicles in order to have a reason to meet his supplier every week in the Eagle and Child pub. Anyone who has ever tangoed with Sister Brown Eye will recognise immediately the safe warm feeling of falling into a wardrobe full of fur coats. And then having tea with a man with goat’s legs.)
