I hope he's not here reading this, but I didn't get anything out of it. Also it was only like two pages long so there was basically nothing to critique. And so I tell him my plans, how I'm looking for a suitable art style and ways to distinguish the characters, and he doesn't seem that impressed. Well, at least I'm not writing about fucking mutants!

My sister has told me a bit about the newest Top Gears, since she lives in Britain. She said they're absolutely fucking wonderful.

God, I wish those three could host every show!

It's the weekly "adults only" edition of Big Bother. As far as I understand it, it's just an excuse to show the housemates in the shower and swearing at each other. 15 year old boys who don't know how to use Google lap it up.

Such a shame to see Tony Squires down on that level of a friggen BB show!

Anywho.

Hi Folks

Have you read any of his books? I know so much of enjoying Clarkson being angry is his tone and accent and reactions to other people, but there's certainly a lot of anger in his writing. They don't look so bad.

I read it too; he's not got a lot to go off at the moment. He's making a decent attempt at it though, I'll say.

He sent me a conversation from his comic, and - I told him this - it just struck me as if he was drawing on a conversation some of us had with him, but of course, in the comic, he gets his viewpoint to dominate and win! It was just some idealistic statements spouted off at the reader without much context and certainly no substantiation.

I read a bit of one at the Melb Uni book sale the other day, it was absolutely hilarious. If the sale's still on, I'll have to bring you there, Ax.

I also just find the mere fact that Jeremy Clarkson writes books absolutely comical to begin with anyway.

Hi Folks
G'day!

So I guess it's just Bonnie and Ax who are left to change their avatars, eh?

YES.

Can you imagine them hosting the nightly news? You'd never stop laughing.

It takes a far bit just to sit down and write, yeah. But so far, there wasn't much distinguishing it from a lot of other comics. There was nothing groundbreaking about it. Maybe that's not what he's after. But comics really, really need innovation right now.
