Chatty? Well-Informed? On Skype?



Coming in February.

Broadsheet on the Telly*?

Probing interviews, free discussion, possible giggles and whatnot with YOU and other people who find it difficult to get on the telly proper.

If you feel you are ready (or know someone who might be ready) to take part in REGULAR three and, possibly four, way Skype discussions on the topics of today to be streamed LIVE on the ‘sheet please contact marked ‘Broadsheet on the Telly’. Expats welcome.

      Happy, it would probably mean going public but appropriate lighting could be arranged. Visually it will look like the opening credits to The Brady Bunch.

  1. Clampers Outside!

    I’d think about it… but then Anne might kick her TV* in… Nigel might get triggered…. while Neil is agam would likely take a hit out…. worth the risk maybe…

    Ya never know…. :)

    ( *TV …sounds better than laptop or somethin’ )

      I am in fact unreasonably terrified at the thought of seeing what you all look like. As it is you’re just a load of floating avatars with strong opinions. I’m not happy at the idea you lot putting on human skin-suits to grin at me through the screen whispering dark secrets from beyond.

    2. Cool Anne

      The telly’s already kicked in shur.

      I’ll do it if you do it.

      Could I do a partial disguise though I wonder ? Bat girl or cat woman maybe? Or maybe a rubberbandit girl.. a plastic bag would be handier than getting a proper costume.

    3. Anne

      I thought I replied to this already. I Ignore the ‘cool Anne’ one in moderation. I don’t know where I got ‘cool’ from. Nevermind.

      I was saying…

    Well done on thinking outside the box* BS, it’ll be fun – as long as it’s not scripted.

    * Pun intended.

    …noooo…this is just wrong…what will happen to Mick Flavin or Leather Jacket Guy…I suppose it’ll have a morbid fascination…like funeral videos…

    ‘Expats welcome.’ I thought ‘expat’ was a British term.
    Plus I thought Mike Murphy’s Micro Quiz-M TV Graphics were never to re-surface.

    How or never, I’m in.
    Dodgy Kenyan wifi-permitting.

      It’s an invite to people who were once called Pat but are now called Patricia… or something. Very inclusive. It appeals to West Brits too.

  5. Brother Barnabas

    First episode – badatmemes, Bertie, Mildred (*), Clampers, Anne and KieranNY please.

    *not within touching distance

  6. Anne

    Would we be allowed say fupp and w*nkers and ar se holes on the Skype call, oh and and show us your mickey go on shur.

    1. mildred st. meadowlark

      It would descend into anarchy within minutes.

      We all know how entertaining that would be ;)

          I have visions of four people just shouting as many fupps as possible.
          Think of the potential…

    Well despite the Murphy’s Micro Quiz set design this could be great
    And its fabulous to see new innovations on what is, tbf like, a 20 odd yr old format for some of us, aka the elder tinternet hawks…

    I need t’check my ass – work wise first
    But I tink a weekly round up of threads etc – good, bad, funny, interesting, content quality, and give an opportunity to give more air to a quality thread that might have got crushed in the mosh pit of a freebie ends@ giveaway event

    BTW, I heard one’ve ye here has gone and got her ‘tash waxed

    1. Anne

      Shur you’d only be drawing them on you, asking. As long as it’s nothing to do with work you’re kinda entitled to a personal life I’d say.

      There’s no mention in my contract of not appearing on a brady bunch styled 4 way skype call live youtube stream about current affairs and whatnot anyway. I’d say you’re grand. Say nuttin’ unless you want your bosses tuning in…. You don’t want them knowing that you’re kinda off your trolly.

      1. Frilly Keane

        I work for myself Anne

        I just don’t want a Minister with responsibility in my particular practice speciality getting a snot on ’cause I called him a Snobby Langer

        Or some crowd who I didn’t take on or didn’t follow up or didn’t work out for with getting tic on line with me

        1. Anne

          Lady of the night so..I was right. :)

          You could always go incognito. Dress up as Elvira or something. Problem solved.

        2. Neil is a gum

          It’s a fair point.
          Maybe you could be professional and not comment about confidential matters? Hard I know seeing as you are such a blabber mouth

  8. Janet, I ate my avatar

    ohoh so exciting! I’m worried it will be like when they make a good book into a movie and no one looks right though..

    Can I wear a Halloween mask when talking on the new television so that my friends won’t recognize me when I express non-PC opinions? I don’t want to be a martyr for free speech. I don’t want the local barman to refuse to serve me a pint.
