Isherwood, Rabbits, Decorating [Mar. 20th, 2011|11:27 am]
Tony Grist
I watched the first ten minutes of Christopher and His Kind because I wanted to see how Matt Smith handled a role very unlike the one we know and love him for. Having ascertained that he does self-contained as well as he does daffy I switched off because I already knew the story. That's the trouble with being 60: you already know all the stories. Besides where was the atmosphere? Where was the Germanness? Why was that chuffer train chuffing through English meadows?

Neutering hasn't yet cured the rabbit boys of their ambition to be top rabbit- or their love of a fight. It never cured Tosh either. Ailz worries about their short term well-being (one of them has unpicked his wound) and I worry about bonding three bunny Napoleons over the long term. This is why we wanted females, goddammit- and why I'm still a bit cross about the sales assistant sexing them wrong.

I did a bit of decorating yesterday- painting over some of the scars the workmen left behind.

Give the bunny boys a week or two. Hormone levels have to drop and even out.
It will be difficult, however...
Good luck.

Caught the last half of Isherwood, thought Smith pants.

Maybe I'll try and watch the whole thing on the e-player some time.

I'm a bit surprised at your self composure over this. I would be FURIOUS.

The rabbit thing?

Well, we're sort of fond of the rabbits; we don't want to hand them back; so what would be the point of getting angry?

BECAUSE IT WAS SHOT IN NORTHERN IRELAND.

I find this hilariously awful.

Could they really not afford to send a second unit over to Germany to film a few backgrounds?

No. Nor to have more than one really crap approximation of a Litfassaeule that looked like it was made out of an old washing-up liquid bottle and sticky-backed plastic.

I didn't stick with it long enough to catch that.

I'm guessing that once they'd paid for the rather pricey cast there wasn't much left in the kitty.

Sort of OT, but I just started rereading Goodbye to Berlin, and that Isherwood voice really is inimitable.
