Ricky Gervais, Jerry Seinfeld, Chris Rock and Louis CK talking about comedy. Part 2 didn’t work for me in the UK, others OK. I’d love something like this involving Stewart Lee. (via Ted Mills)
A thoughtful essay by Max Roberts, from 2009, about the rules used in Beck’s diagrammatic London Underground map, and when they’re worth breaking. Well worth a read. (via Blech)

@Zoonie That was another big and well-rehearsed performance, rather than "just music". Also brilliant.
@mik3yb Robbie? I have some standards! :)
@mik3yb All the blokes with guitars etc are mostly just playing music. Fair enough. It might be good music. This is a performance.
@Zoonie If I watched any other event involving dance I'd expect them to have choreographed it. Why is this different? It's a big show.
@Zoonie The dancing is *too good*?!
@antimega Yes, certainly beats some unkempt blokes in t-shirts.
What’s this Beyoncé career retrospective about? Does anyone watching Glastonbury on TV not know who she is? Even i know.
@alruii Wasn’t that John Cooper Clarke? (If we were watching the same clips…?)
@maxgadney They’re a bit like metal for people who don’t like leather.
Soon I will be able to do instant face recognition on strangers in the Glastonbury crowd and identify people singing along to Kaiser Chiefs.
What are the Kaiser Chiefs for? Do they fill the Stereophonics gap?
@stml There’s a quote along the same lines in the display about the Festival of Britain at the Royal Festival Hall.
Huh, turns out I had heard Janelle Monáe before: ‘Tightrope’ was #2 in Said The Gramophone’s best songs of 2010. Music’s a blur these days.
Janelle Monáe at Glastonbury yesterday: http://www.bbc.co.uk/i/b0129fhd/ (at start and 32:30) (UK only) (Wonderful performance.) (Yay!)
