Ohhh... I see.

A guy holds a monologue when he is supposed to have a dialogue. He leaves just pauses all the while that are just long enough for the other person to say "And what happened then?" to increase the wannabe-dramatic effect of his speech. He doesn't notice he's been asked something completely different and how he is ignorant to a simple question. His whole monologue puts a question mark in the room what the hell this whiny story has to do with him being offered a glass of water and he never even gets to answer that part. His story includes every fake-drama stereotype possible: a traumatic campfire/little boy story, a death of an innocent little animal, sports shoes, a smelly old man, someone dying of conjunctivitis... Plus there's a flood of stylistic devices that make an awkward story even more over the top awkward: a flashback within a flashback, the repetition of the line "some day he just wasn't there", an anticlimactic story-line (Oh, the old man died? Err, no. He went to visit someone. Because someone else is about to die.), reference to death more than one time, metaphors in the wrong place (that description of the spider...)... And on top of it all a most confused explanation why the boy stopped eating asparagus. And the woman is forced into the role of the dumb fool.
There you go. Sheer brilliance. You know, Dust, you should become a soap opera writer for real. Those TV producers wouldn't even notice you're making fun of them.

I have to say that this DVD is absolutely brilliant. It just emphasises that G2 are actually right at the top of their game! Having seen G2 many times over the years I think this DVD really captures the spirit of what G2 are about. It also provides a revealing insight into the history of the Band, relating their story from their 'Genesis to revelation'.
Thank you G2, for all your efforts. The best £15 I've spent in years!
I'll second that, Steve! Excellent early footage too! Love the extra bits! Injected with humour too! Terry ought to have been a comedian...oh, hang on a minute...
Only jokin' mate! Very impressed with the flute playing!
Best £15 I've spent in ages too!
Nice to see you again, Steve! Shame you couldn't make Tavistock; they absolutely nailed it again, this time with no technical gremlins!
