More on Peter Cook

Posted in Humor, Random with tags , , , on July 13, 2008 by Robaigh

Not to be confused with “Moron Peter Cook” or even “Moore on Peter Cook.” Yes, well, I’m posting this because I noticed that some folks had popped by my site looking for info on Peter Cook – presumably that OTHER Peter Cook, the less famous, less humorous, and less dead Peter Cook. Of course, the Peter Cook of whom I am so fond also never nailed Christie Brinkley, so, take from that what you will.

Anywho, here’s a wee tribute to the late Peter Cook of the never-having-nailed-Christie-Brinkley fame.

Oh, you mean MacBeth?

While reminiscing about Peter Cook (not the one from recent headlines), I was reminded that he did some work on the (completely ingenious) Blackadder series.  In the nearly Joycean stream-of-consciousness jazz riffing one can only do these days thanks to the world wide internet, I wound up laughing yet again at this, my favorite Blackadder episode.  Eh, even if it doesn’t have Peter Cook in it.

Diminishing expectations

Feh. I’ve started about 10 different blog entries, only to wind up writing something like, “Well, I’ll pick up on this theme later.” Yyyeaaaahhh, that’s probably not gonna happen. Over the last several months I’ve been getting really interested in a topic, becoming enthusiastic about writing on the subject, then getting interrupted and not really finding the energy to rehash the theme. So, if you’ve been popping by here expecting to find that I’ve written something I promised to write, sorry. No excuses. If you’re really interested in something in particular that I’ve already mentioned, let me know and I’ll try to get to it in a timely manner. Otherwise, without my feet being held to the fire, it ain’t likely to happen.

Apropos of absolutely nothing, top searches leading to my site lately:

lyrics “o sight of anguish” (I’ll still highly recommend Tim Eriksen’s rendition of this. Look for Tim on Youtube. )

“a token of my extreme” video -lyrics (Still Zappa-crazy after all these years) (Haha! Caca!)

Also apropos of nothing:

Really? C. Brinkley and Peter Cook?! Too bad: they made a nice couple. Uh, despite Cook being dead since 1995 and all.
