If by any chance anyone has missed the last LAST CHANCE TO SEE featuring the rape by a kakapo of Stephen Fry's zoologist co-presenter, I strongly advise you check it out. Definitely the funniest sight of the week. If you have to get sexually assaulted by a critter,it must be said that the kakapo is an irresistibly gormless-looking one,with bags of star quality.
Also saw an interesting study of computer games on BBC4, by Charlie Booker. I'm really ignorant in this area, and was fascinated. They showed a lot of really early, comically crude stuff, including a porno game called BEAT IT AND EAT IT, which was a revelation.
FIFTY CENT; BLOOD ON THE SAND was discussed as an example of a really crap current game. It looked so grotesque I' quite fancied having a go.
The 'blind man' actually came, grumbling about how it took him three hours from Southend. After all the waiting and agita, I must admit I'm very pleased with the effect. It's such a huge window, I thought I'd alternate the shades of the slats, instead of having one big block of solid colour, and it works quite well. The guy said he'd never installed a blind with different shades before, and it looked good. I'm surprised. It seemed like the sensible thing to do,when you have virtually a whole wall of window. Whew, I'm so glad that's over with.
