Just in case you’ve not felt backrubbingly old today, we’d just like to point out that the first series of Look Around You, Robert Popper and Peter Serafinowicz’s wonderful parody of 1970s/1980s schools programmes, began ten years ago yesterday.
Celebrate this fact by taking in the new short film the duo have created especially for the 10th anniversary event at the BFI. It is splendid.
Is that it can often be this beautiful to look at.
A compiled montage from YouTube user kogonada, taking in POV shots used throughout the series thus far, most often from the point of view of an inanimate object such as frying pan or toilet. AND IT IS BEAUTIFUL.
PART THREE of the epic awards bash previously presented in video form here (TV shows) and here (songs). As a special treat, we’ll also list all the awards from parts one and two in text form, for those too darned lazy to sit through about half an hour of esoteric nonsense we knocked up during Christmas week. Tsk, eh?
Don’t worry, this time it’s all in text. No twenty-seven minute long tribute to Granada Jobfinder or anything to sit through.
Over 127,136,643,191,541,302,394 songs were released around the world during 2011. But, say you're going to be stranded on a desert island for some reason and are only allowed to take twelve of them with you. Yes, twelve. we don't know why. Shush. Which twelve would be the ones you should pick? Big ask, we know.
Using COMPLICATED SCIENCE, BrokenTV has calculated the twelve best songs of 2011 (that someone is probably going to chip in with a comment pointing out that at least three of them were actually from 2010 for something, but again, shush). And here they all are.
(Actual video this time. Not just a tribute to 4-Tel.)
Note: the embedded video probably makes it really hard to read the captions. Here’s the full-sized 720p high-definition version.
(We’ve kept the original source video, in case some idiot record company has the entire video pulled. If that happens, please let us know. Thanks!)
Oh, and happy new etc.
Blocked by YouTube already. Gah. Not to be outdone – not least because the rundown only contains small one-minute chunks of songs – we’ve now made it available to download as a hefty 720p MP4, or as a 360p MP4 for people with more modest needs. Links:
