Reminds me of the Reeves and Mortimer sketch taking the piss out of Masterchef.

Grossman had an enormous head and floated across the room.

I never watch that but have always enjoyed their surreal style of comedy.

I also enjoyed when he went on Gordon Ramsey's programme and asked for a boiled egg. Ramsey was raging!

You've got to fight for what you want, for all that you believe
It's right to fight for what we want, to live the way we please

As long as we have done our best, then no one can do more
And life and love and happiness, are well worth fighting for

And we should never count the cost, or worry that we'll fall
It's better to have fought and lost, than not have fought at all

Kind of documentaries I suppose (well, rather this thread is better than the general telly one) but does anyone else watch TED Talks?

I've tried but they have a tendency to really annoy me for some reason.

Some are good, others are just people with an agenda they want to preach. I think you have to pick and choose the ones that are of interest to you.

I watched the Glenn Greenwald one recently on internet privacy and mass surveillance. That was well worth a watch and I'd encourage anyone with a spare 20 minutes to give it a go.

This TED talk is worth 5 minutes of your time for some useful tech tips that not everyone may be aware of.

It's taking me a few attempts to get my head around all of the information in Hypernormalisation, quite a lot to process!

I'd recommend these:

Happy People - A Year In the Taiga (Werner Herzog)


Racing extinction


Amy

Finding Vivian Maier


Project Nim


Cartel Land


This was pretty tragic



12 O'Clock Boys



My favourite, very slow and with an occasional bit of Aphex Twin:

Blackfish (available on Netflix) is well worth a watch. Interesting and shocking insight into the events at Seaworld including a number of deaths directly attributable to one rogue orca and how it was all kept on the down-low.
