Kirsty young is one of my fave voices on the radio. Something about her makes me swoon , and all gaga, when i hear her voice and that may be due to her Scottish lilt., plus being bery attractive. So here she is hosting an epsilon of HIGNFY.

Natalie Haynes, writer and critic, gives a talk entitled "The Ancient Guide to Modern Life" at Emory University (January 22, 2014). Talking bout Aristophanes and the sex strikes in his play The Clouds.

His powers of ridicule were feared and acknowledged by influential contemporaries; Plato singled out Aristophanes' play The Clouds as slander that contributed to the trial and subsequent condemning to death of Socrates although other satirical playwrights had also caricatured the philosopher.
His second play, The Babylonians (now lost), was denounced by the demagogue Cleon as a slander against the Athenian polis. It is possible that the case was argued in court but details of the trial are not recorded and Aristophanes caricatured Cleon mercilessly in his subsequent plays, especially The Knights, the first of many plays that he directed himself. "In my opinion," he says through the Chorus in that play, "the author-director of comedies has the hardest job of all."



LOL! Funny and informative.

Through the eyes of "the angriest man in the ancient world," the satirist Juvenal, comedian and classicist Natalie Haynes reveals how the search for the meaning of life has stood the test of time.

Natalie is a reformed comedian who is a little bit obsessive about Ancient Greece and Rome.




Funny and informative.

Go for it Hill, tell the F***ing what for about disabilty and the cuts.

Adam Hills' 'The Last Leg' Rant About UK Politicians Is Utterly Brutal

http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2015/07/03/adam-hills-the-last-leg-tv_n_7729342.html?1436081308

The Huffington Post called it brutal, but then truth is brutal, and he was using the screw term metaphorically to mean that the government is going way to far in its demonization of the underclass, the poor,and the disabled , and yet people are shocked and disgusted by paedophiles, yet be blasé about child poverty.

Absolutely F***k Them!
jazzy_dave: (and now for ...)
James Corden , who use to be in the comedy series Gavin & Stacey, which i must admit i did not like, and appeared in a Doctor Who episode "The Lodger", is now the host on The Late Late Show - here is a funny clip of him with Jennifer Hudson from the show in Carpool Karaoke.



I just found it so amusing.
