Ah no blogs today my time has gone away...have been sorting out teaching most days with the odd great gig in between, but while researching for my gender identity unit found some great google videos including:
The Lavender Lens (1995)

See it here.
Tim and Eric also had a live show here
AVClub Interview with some of the greatest Tim and Eric clips. Tim also does a bizarre anti-stand-up act called Theidecker. Eric's youtube channel. and The Guardian did a article on them recently with quotes from Graham Linehan and Dr. Buckles. Speaking of Adam and Joe, get to the cinema early and you get a minute version of their BBC6 radio show as part of the BBC ad, thank god it's not Chris Moyles anymore!

Just a quick one, in the middle of starting a new unit I designed on gender identity and transgenderism which I'm looking forward to, we'll see if the students will. Have a nice gig tonight at St. Gregory's Centre for the Arts, where I'm described as: Lorcan McGrane: A deliciously deviant wordsmith who has been grafting a name for himself around Norwich, known for tackiling the most inappropriate of subject matter with side-splitting results.
Also on the poster for the all day Soapbox on October 18th! see above.

Started teaching in a rural art college last week, taught there last term, it's a bit nuts, up at 5-6am 40 minute walk to train station, 45 minutes on the train and then 20 min walk to the college. Last year it's where I came up with must of the stand-up in my head walking to work with Lambchop on the ole ipod. It's weird being back, both staff and students seem suprised that I am back for another term, and it's earned me a certain amount of vague kudos among them. Being back for a second year means I'm more confident in trusting my own judgment in what to teach. Not being a graphic design practicioner (although did once get 85 in a graphic design module) I kind of feel out of place but I try to get the students enthusiastic about people like Chip Kidd and stuff like the Helvetica doucmentary. It's good as well to get to show some of my favorite designs and posters etc., like this one for The Birds
