This video is a perfect example of someone being a dick and it was well chosen!

Ohhh..... you are so mean!
He is so sexy...
his voice
his accent
his voice
his accent...

my ex sounded just like him... but now he was a dick!
I think maybe I need help... is there a support group for this type of thing? Can I be cured of my Brit voice lust? Ever...???

Haahahaaa... actually, after watching the vid yet again, I think I need to set you straight Sir Splotch.

That's not 'being a dick' when you're a Brit. It's called 'thinking you're entitled to be rude... just because".

Ohhhh....... damn.... am I jaded now? Is there a support group for that???

He's was pissed off 'cause he had a premonition that the Stones would get 100% royalties for Bittersweet Symphony - or perhaps he was trying to work off some bad British cuisine, and was suffering from constipation resulting from too many "crisps" and "bangers and mash" - a valid excuse for bowling over people on the sidewalk don't you think?

The Imaginary Reviewer said...

In one of my first (non-imaginary) reviews, for my University newspaper, I described Richard Ashcroft's debut solo single as "a very pedestrian affair". Seeing this video again makes me think that I shouldn't have been surprised, given that it's just him walking down the street.

The Idea of Progress is not as smart as he thinks he is. I thought the title of of your post was "John Ashcroft is a Dick" when in fact it was another.

Although John Ashcroft sang as well, I suppose.

You are so clever Splotchy, at least I got it.

I remember when one of the Olympics stole this tune. I was so confused because I couldn't figure out who stole it from who, or when the Olympics started being hip enough to steal from pop music.

Jin - you're not alone. He does have a particular arrogant British swagger. I fall for it too.
