I was going to make this thread last night, but didn’t. Was prompted by @Smee’s TED talks thread.


#2

Man Utd under Fergie
Original-run Futurama
The life and work of Louis CK


#3

The Flaming Lips.

The UK Patents Act 1977.

Guaranteed to get the ratings through the roof, too.


#5

The Beatles


#6

The life and work of Ho Chi Minh


#7

the collected works of Balonz


#8

Not sure that will translate well to pre-watershed TV…


#9

Richard Brautigan
Maybe The Smiths too


#10

Steve Jobs


#11

Blow Jobs


#12

Lee Harvey Oswald


#13

what’s your favourite brautigan book/poetry collection?


#14

Peep Show


#15

The Simpsons: 1989-1999
Yo La Tengo


#16

The Pill Versus the Springhill Mine Disaster for poetry, Sombrero Fallout for prose
But I read the edna webster collection most recently and that’s got some of the best weird snippets of anything I’ve read by him


#17

Probably quite embarrassingly it would be Los Campesinos.


#18

The Office (UK)


#19

just imagining John Humphry’s contempt as he reels off questions like ‘was it an album or a record?’ and ‘under what moniker did the Los Campesinos front man post at unpopular music forum drownedinsound’.
