More about Robbie and some stuff about 24

First of all, I thought the video would be embedded. Damn.

Secondly, I’ve now paid more attention to Robbie’s lyrics and can’t help smiling every time I hear this line: “All we’ve ever wanted is to look good naked, hoping someone can take it”. You gotta love RW for this.

Thirdly, greatness vs. asshole-ness (brought up by a friend's comment): I don’t think you necessarily have to be an asshole to be great. Yes, Robbie is a poser on stage, but that’s part of what makes him such a great entertainer. I’d never call him an asshole. As to his greatness, I think that has a lot to do with who he works with. As mentioned before, I hated his last album Rudebox although I own all of his other CDs. I know he wanted to try something new but it just didn’t work for me. Now he has teamed up with songwriting partner (or producer??) Guy Chambers again and it seems to have been a good decision. We’ll have to wait and see how the whole album sounds once it comes out.

I could go on with psycho-analyzing Robbie or go into a philosophical discussion of what defines greatness, but I guess I’ll postpone that : )

Other random stuff that's on my mind: I'm wondering why I don't like Season 7 of 24 as much as the ones before.
Possible reasons:
- It's on too late (from 10:30 to 00:30) so I'm just too tired to properly notice the good quality.
- The German dubbing is bad - well, it always has been on that show. Some of the voices just sound wrong.
- The quality really has gone down. Must check the web for reviews of Day 7. Miss President Palmer.

  1. Oh, you shouldn't have postponed your greatness vs. assholeness analysis. I'd like to hear it. Maybe that would make a good "full" post one day?

    Oh, about the series *24* : I never saw it, not a single episode. But is it still in "realtime", as I heard? That IS remarkable. Is it still about the same story as the first episode (what WAS it about anyway?).

    Oh, speaking about TV-series: have your heard about "The wire"?? I saw an episode by accident recently and was totally excited. Just like my all time favourite (never broadcasted) series "Homicide" it is a gritty, realistic "crime" series set in Baltimore. Was it ever aired in germany?
