Hoses of the Holy in the Parallel Universe

January 31, 2006

My Hobby

Am I alone in finding the web sites of talent agencies utterly hilarious and fab?

I just love reading the potted bios and viewing the photos of all the yeah-no people, and I'm fascinated with the idea that the "resident word expert on Channel 4's Countdown" is being touted around, as, you know, an expert on words for "the news and on topical language issues."

"Yes, the word bullshit is actually unknown within the M25 nexus... it originates in some far-off land, where the Little People live."

And check out Liam Halligan, "Economics Correspondent at Channel 4 News" on his lovely red scooter. Or Dr. Nick Baylis, a psychologist specialisting in well-being, in his lovely black polo neck.

Next time you need an economist, a word expert, or an architectural historian, you know where to look. And if you ever wondered where BBC Radio 5 Live get all the experts who comment on the news, why - quelle surprise! - they're all at the same talent agency as many, many 5 Live presenters.

I love it when you can see the joins.
