Letter to TV people re: eating

3 07 2014

Dear actors, directors, screenwriters, advertisers etc,

The act of putting food in a film or TV character’s mouth, in a dining setting, is enough to give us simple viewers a clue that perhaps the character is eating or about to start eating. There is no need to force actors to eat with their Hollywood/BBC funded gobs wide open showing us the contents while making repulsive, 90db sleaurching noises. We know they are eating ; the visuals of putting food in the mouth followed by chewing is a huge indicator of this fact. There is no need to perpetuate bad manners by forcing us to listen in surround sound to the chomping and slurping of breakfast,lunch, dinner or snacks.
Please stop it.

No love
The people of the world with manners





Noise in the Vacuum Rant#1 *Guest Post*

This one is by Noise in the Vacuum….. I get there feeling (and hope) there will be more.

Honestly what is there to rant about?

I mean we have politician who make pond life look like upstanding members of the human race.

We have constant health reports, each one which seems to contradict the last one and yet the news presenters never seem to notice this even if they said yesterday that ?Two tablespoonfuls of arsenic is good for you? they would not mention this when saying ?Arsenic is bad for you ,? today.

We are told to stop using our cars so more people use the trains so they become crowded so they put up the fares to stop the overcrowding!

For fucks sake don’t decide to cycle to work or they will employ people to stick broom handles through your spokes.

The TV is shite! It is a constant drivel of the celbritocracy trying to perpetuate its self, a show called ?Celebrity minefield clearance? now that I would watch.

Hmm anyone have the address of Channel 4’s commissioning editor?
