And I really like this new part of the BBC site on Magazine that does long stories in what I think is a fantastic way. There was this post on Afghanistan (I had all sorts of trouble finding it, I think they should really push these article more because they're terrific).
It also really really reminds me of Curtis, my first reaction was to wonder if he had something to do with it. This is another story is the same style, which if you don't like then there's something badly wrong with you
I’m particularly interested in the ‘disintegration of the ego’ bit. I wonder if it’s ego that keep us trapped, not just in a cage where we can’t see outside ourselves, but also where we can’t see ourselves as part of history, past and future. We’re bound to some kind of immediate experience.
Part 1 looks like where things have been going on the blog recently but might expand on the Press Baron post, the stuff about Murdoch here, obviously Fluck.....there might even be more fighting lobsters.
Part 2 sounds like it might expand on the beginning of this blog and its multi-part story about Afghanistan.
I can't wait for part 3, I missed the show. I'm sure there are others who, sinfully, have caught snippets of the gig on popular video websites. It looks sensational.
