I'm sure I've read before that Atkinson is more than a bit of a prick to work with and that his character in The Tall Guy isn't far from the man himself (mind you, give him credit it that he'd admit it).

Either this article doesn't hold true in a general sense or Atkinson is very, very bad at what he's trying to accomplish—the proof is in the performances of everyone else on that show.

edit: I was reading that in the middle of a meeting and realized I missed the paragraph where the producer tells the guests not to listen to him.

Or that the directors of the episodes and/or the cast were better at countering him. What's weird about him telling people to be less funny is that he was the straight man on the show. His laughs came from his response to the moronic characters he was surrounded by. If they weren't funny, he wouldn't have been either.

I had to make a promise to my mum never to be an electrician or someone who works with electricity. Due to my dad being electrocuted. Maybe I could've turned out better. :disshame:
Oh crap. :sad: I remember so many of my friends in university who mocked those from high school who went to a trade school. It wasn't for me, but even back then I thought those guys were choosing the more solid career path. No such thing as an unemployed plumber or electrician.
I did choose a trade when I left school which is Wood Machinist which I took an apprenticeship in and passed with distinction. Trouble being where I live in the south of this blighted isle all the wood machining factories and workshops closed down fairly quickly when the big D.I.Y. merchants moved in and made things easier for people. Hence I became a postman then a security guard/supervisor which is the last refuge of the bluffer. I'm currently not working due to my health issues but as soon as I get my move sorted which is just over the horizon I will be looking to get myself back into some form of employment.
You moving far Marky or staying in the Royal County?
I will be going to Cornwall initially to stay with my mum and step-dad. If I can find a property cheap enough once Brexit has been sorted ( :rolleyes: ) I'll stay there. If not I may look to go northwards where property is way cheaper and everyone listens to KISS 24/7.
My mate recently moved up to South Shields from Leicester for that very same reason and he loves it. Can't get him into KISS though.
I just polished off some Low Country shrimp & grits and a mess of collards. That's a hell of a strain on the arm.

I'm only moving there if you give your me complete KISS collection.





















So I can take it to the nearest charity shop.

They are not for listening to but to be used as coasters.

Even those are traditionally decorative. Target practice I could understand. Maybe for starting fires.
