As regular readers know, there are periods during which youâd read more regularly than I update, and those periods tend to coincide with full time work. Lately, the full time work has also involved maintaining a blog. Makes sense to me to update this by pointing to that.
Most recently, I wrote up a list of Predictions for 2012. It covers Arts and Entertainment (including the so-called âvulgar artsâ), Politics, Science, Astrologyâ¦ (By âcoversâ, I mean, âI might have the odd gag regardingâ.)
Hereâs an example: my prediction regarding Reality TV in 2012 (hence Alex E Clarkâs brilliant caricature of Matt Preston as a Suckling Pig, above):
Big Brother is returning in 2012. Thatâs great. You know what would be even better? If they ramped it up. Hereâs the Reality TV format that would nail the ratings: The Biggest Celebrity MasterChef Brother. Biggest Loser-type people â including Matt Preston â are trapped in the Big Brother household, kitted out with an impressive industrial kitchen and nothing to eat except each other. Last one standing wins.
Youâd tune into that. For the recipes, of course. And imagine how big a seller the book of the series would be. Top that, 2013 Reality TV!
Pretty good prediction, huh! If you liked it, go ahead, read moreâ¦
