top vid,ta

hey,have u seen this:
LAZY_TITLE

WATCH IT FIRST, then read below here

(bit of background
beginquote

It was part of a series of films made to be randomly
inserted into normal programming in Scotland with absolutely
no warning whatsoever to confuse viewers between 1970 and
1990 known as television interventions. It was broadcast on
April 28th 1990, when Hendry was also playing in the final
of
the World Championship.

These transmissions were a surprise, a mystery. No
explanations, no excuses. Reactions were various. I viewed
one piece in an old gents' club. The TV was permanently on
but the occupants were oblivious to it, reading newspapers
or dozing. When the TV began to fill with water newspapers
dropped, the dozing stopped. When the piece finished, normal
activity was resumed..I took these as positive reactions.
David Hall, 19:4:90 Television Interventions catalogue,1990

Yes thats one of my favourite videos cos its so bloody
bizarre and surreal, the gradual change from something so
utterly mundane to strange is genius

to think now that they even showed it, let alone inserted it
so that it had max effect, does unfortunately indicate some
kind of decline in something, at Beeb.

Yeah i remember TV having much more avant garde, artistic
stuff in it after 8 o clock, sometimes even in the
afternoon. you would never ever get anything like that
anymore, its not commissioned. I don't know who is
responsible for the change of ethos, its sad

"educate, inform, entertain" the people who put that on
they've all retired to the home counties, their
daughters+sons are an exception to the rule that offspring
subconciously improve on their parents lot

guess u could say the same about Burroughs or someone, it's
easy to underestimate how hard it was to get books 'back in
the day'.

I don't know much about him truth be told, What ive read
i've liked, his sci fi stuff, its more related to surrealism
and psychiatry like he says in that vid, which i think is
were all interesting ideas originate

its nothing to do with technology really, but weirdness of
people and reality

i could never really get into sci-fi, or at least not any
more than non-sci-fi.... like, everyday shit is sooo weird
really, and it has that hook that it isn't totally out there
from the offset, so it draws u in more...
i gotta go 2 bed man gnoight
