Whittle Waffle Episode 8

After a bit of a real world delay here finally is Whittle Waffle  Episode 8

And it's a slightly different from normal episode. I give a big fat Bristol Expo recap and mention these things:

Artist From Art

Stuff I Read

Doctor Who

Knitting and Spinning

The closing music this week is my current obsession. I love Suzi Quatro and this is my fav of all her songs. I have to dance to this no matter where I am!

  1. Feedback as requested!

    I think I concur about the separation of art/artist. I'd also add that it's easier to do when you know and love the work before you learn about the artist's shortcomings as a human being. John Lennon? Wife-beater. Jimmy Page? Outright, unapologetic plagiarist. I can acknowledge how problematic they are and still still adore their music.

    Of course, it was much harder to learn those things in the days before the internet, where you'd only find them through rumour or from reading unauthorised biographies. Nowadays, I'll see someone on the internet being offensive or objectionable, learn they're an artist of some kind and mentally cross them off the "stuff I might check out at some point" list. It goes the other way too: I'll see someone on the internet being awesome, learn they're an artist of some kind and make a point of seeking out their work. And of course, there are people I think are wonderful, or hilarious, but their work just isn't my bag. I don't think any less of them, in fact I feel kind of puzzled that I don't like their art, but I can separate that.

    The difference is, when someone is vocally propounding views I find morally repugnant, and endorses behaviour I consider despicable, I'd rather not give them any of my money, cheers.

    You may be 50 Shades assassination-ed out, but in case not, I highly recommend the coverage of the same books on Mozo's blog: I Read Terrible Things:

  2. I agree with everything you said dude. It is easier to gloss over unpleasant things if you already love the work. It's hard to take away a connection that you already feel and nor should you I think. I think in that case the art has spoken, not the artist. If that doesn't sound too wanky! x

Robin of Sherwood.

Here we are again, another auld SFX blog. This time a review of Robin of Sherwood, from about 2010 I think. I also think after reading this I absolutely need to watch this again and soon. Sometimes shitty weather is a treat isn't it, or at the very least permission to curl up with ya knitting and your spicy tea, mmmm spicy tea and watch something delicious. And this is really delicious. For more than one reason.  It is probably on Netflix of Prime by now I would've thought. Did you love this? Did it haunt you? Sometimes unbidden, does this scrumptious face just pop into your head?

Robin of Sherwood: Nothing’s Forgotten…Nothing’s Ever Forgotten
When I was a child in the 80’s the unmissable television programme of the time was Robin of Sherwood. My overwhelming memories of the series were: Michael Praed being the most beautiful human being I had ever seen, the blond replacement being a bit rubbish and the episode with the Hounds of Lucifer being the most terrifying thing I had e…
