Friday five favourite: Comedians

30 10 2015

I love a bit of comedy, who doesn’t?! I’ll nearly always pick something light to watch over something heavy. I’d say my list of favourite comedians is quite mixed – some very mainstream, some much more obscure that you may well not have heard of (unless I’ve talked your ear off about them already!) Maybe you’ll find something new that you like here today! In most cases I’ve just picked one clip per comedian, but if you like it, go on Youtube to find more! Most of these clips are fairly random samples. Here we go, and as always, these are in no particular order:

Dave Gorman – I couldn’t decide which clip I liked more so you get 2 as a bonus!

Milton Jones

Michael McIntyre

Dara O’Briain

Adam Hills

I also really enjoy Jay Foreman who is a comedy musician, so I’ve decided that instead of including him in here, I’ll do my Friday Five Favourite Jay Foreman songs soon πŸ™‚

Great lines from: Back to the Future

21 10 2015

In case you live under a rock, today is “Future Day”, the day which Marty McFly travels to in Back To The Future 2. I decided a few months ago that it’d be fun to take the day off and watch all three films!

I forgot just how great these are, so I decided to write down some of my favourite quotes as I went. The thing is, the film isn’t that quoteable – a lot of the humour and cleverness only works in context, but I’ve written down the few gems that too work on their own:

BTTF

“There’s that word again! Heavy! Why are things so heavy in the future, is there a problem with the Earth’s gravitational pull?”

“Why don’t you make like a tree, and get outta here?”

“I’m George, George McFly, I’m your density!”

“I guess you guys aren’t ready for that yet. But your kids are gonna love it”

“Roads? Where we’re going we don’t need roads!”

BTTF part II

“The justice system works swiftly in the future now that they’ve abolished all lawyers”

“You mean you have to use your hands? That’s like a baby’s toy!”

“I foresee two possibilities. 1: coming face to face with herself 30 years older would put her into shock and she’d simply pass out. Or 2: the encounter could create a time paradox, the result of which could cause a chain reaction that would unravel the very fabric of the space-time continuum and destroy the entire universe! Granted, that’s a worst-case scenario. The destruction might in fact be very localised, limited to merely our own galaxy.”

“Boy oh boy mum, you sure can hydrate a pizza”

“That’s about as funny as a screen door on a battleship”

“I know you just sent me back to the future, but I’m back. I’m back from the future.”

BTTF part III

“Marty, you’re not thinking fourth dimensionally!”

“See you in the future”
“You mean the past”
“Exactly”

“I wish I’d never invented that infernal time machine”

“Your future hasn’t been written yet, no one’s has. Your future is whatever you make it, so make it a good one.”

And for all three films….

“Great Scott!”

Of course, the real joy in watching it today was seeing all the things they predicted we’d have by now: highways in the sky, thumbprint taxi payment, fax machines on the path, and so much more – the BBC have a great article on this.

Tom from the band McFly who were named after the main character of these films, also pointed this out last night:
