the graham norton show is great

Another instance of this fandom’s double standards:

-Oli and Calvin accompany Louis around the whole world, support him during his performances, stay at his public house in LA. People are like “awww! Friends being there for their friends. How cute”!

-Nick accompanies Anne and Robin to the taping of The Graham Norton Show to support Harry and be there for him. People are like : “yikes! They are implying they are dating! Yikes, he will come out with him”.

Like for fucks sake, it that doesn’t reek of a mix of double standards and homophobia … The only reason you are creating unnecessary drama is because you know that Nick is gay. As if two grown-up gay men cannot be friends. However, Oli’s and Calvin’s constent presence with Louis doesn’t borher you because you think/know they are straight! Wow, what a great criterion to judge friendships!

Prompt: Imagine Tom Hiddleston has a crush on you and he is feeling jealous of James McAvoy on “The Graham Norton Show” because James talks about how great the chemistry was between you, his co-star, and him in your latest film.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

You were fidgeting with your red skin tight dress as you stood backstage at the Graham Norton show with your current co-star James McAvoy and ex-costar Tom Hiddleston. You checked your phone for the eighteenth time, seeing a text from your best friend in the whole world, Ida.

“Good luck! : )” she sent, upbeat and encouraging as always. She’d been your good friend for five years now and she was busy with her music journalist job, interviewing Metallica tonight.

“Thanks!” you replied back.

“You ready for this, Y/N?” James asked, his Scottish accent so thick and so nice, you loved the way your name sounded on his lips. He was buttoning his suit jacket as he glanced your way. You tried not to stare, but goddamn was that hard. He was funny, handsome, clever, charming, talented….there wasn’t anything you didn’t like about him.

“Uh, yeah,” you tried, taking a deep breath.

It was his last interview for the whole press tour so he was excited, more excited because he was going to see you. After a long time of being a part. He was going on the Graham Norton show with other people. He like interviews like that, they were more fun and open. 

When the show started it already was filled with jokes and many great stories. 

“Tom, you have a I’d like to say sweet story about you and Y/N?” Tom smiled and shyly looked down. 

“I think it’s a bit embarrassing too”  he laughed but kept on with the story “well as many might know. Me and Y/N worked on a movie together and I was quit open about how much I liked her. I talked about it in interviews and on social media” he was cut off by one of the other guest. 

“And while this was going on you never asked her out?” Tom nodded making everyone laugh

“Not a single time. I guess I thought , I actually don’t know what I was thinking. Any way. As the movie ended and the press tour was over, I thought this would be the last  time I see her” before someone else could him off he turned to the people on the couch “and no I still didn’t ask her out. But She asked me out” he smiled saying those words. Tom still couldn’t believe he was dating you now. 

“You must have felt horrible you were so slow she had to ask you out” said Graham but Tom just laughed

“Oh no, i felt horrible when I actually fainted when she asked me out. Like fall to the floor fainted. “ him and everyone else laughed imagining the moment he was talking about. “That is horrible” he said but at the same time thought it was a great story he would be telling his future kids. 

From the moment he came home from the first date he couldn’t stop thinking about the future he could have with you: Kids, house, dogs. Now he just couldn’t wait for it to come true.

Peter Capaldi tribute - That’s Life

Tribute to the life and career of Peter Capaldi.  

Not my usual tribute.  I blame the BBC.  At the end of the 9th series they made the 12th my favorite Doctor, The Husbands of River Song sealed the deal, and then they went and left me with no new Doctor Who for a whole year.  I spent 2016 mining Peter Capaldi’s past filmography.  He has had a remarkable career and is a remarkable actor.  This is one of the few times I’ve become a fan of an actor rather than a character or show and I am looking forward to seeing what he does next.

Song: That’s Life
Performer: Frank Sinatra
Writers: Dean Kay, Kelly Gordon

This was just done for fun, no copyright infringement is intended.
There are so many different movies and shows I’ve taken clips from I have no idea who has the rights to them.  I hope nobody minds that I’ve used them for this little tribute (considering how few views I get, it really shouldn’t matter).  Thanks much.

Wonderful tribute video for Peter! Love how each portion of the video is given a description of the show or film. That really helps!

Some thoughts on Hillary Clinton on The Graham Norton Show

The first thing to say is that it was a great interview - Hillary was relaxed, which was sort of amazing given the circumstances, but I think the second the audience saw the crutches, she had them in the palm of her hand. There had been a lot of “what the hell is going on?” during the day - kind of understandable given most arrived between 8am and 9am, and the interview was just over 4 hours late in starting - we’d been told nothing, just that she was delayed, and then word filtered out that she’d missed two other shows that morning, and some grumbling started, primarily a fear that she’d miss Norton too after waiting so long. But then she appeared, and it was so clear she was in discomfort and struggling to walk, and I think if the audience had been allowed to carry her to the sofa, they would have.

She’s very funny in the interview, although in general it’s pretty serious compared to the usual Norton content. Norton has a really easy going manner which sort of made the serious nature of what was being said probably easier for some expecting a more boisterous interview (the usual tone of the show) to digest, and there was a nice to and fro between them. For the most part here in the UK, she’s had sympathetic interviewers - and it was abundantly clear that Norton had read the book too - which helps a lot. She didn’t say anything that we’d not heard before during the book tour, but she seemed more casual saying it, more open. Maybe it was the painkillers for the fractured toe, or just the fact that rather like last night in the Southbank Centre, she knew from the word go that she had an audience entirely on her side - we weren’t former voters, we didn’t have any grievance, we were there because we liked her and wanted to hear her. She talked about desperately wanting to get out of going to the inauguration - which provided a delightfully funny moment when she said she “thought” the Bush seniors being in hospital was legit, and providing they don’t lose it during the edit, she says George W’s “that was some weird shit” quote about the Trump’s speech of doom and disaster. Also, she does the intro for the top of show, and bless, she had to scoot to the end of the sofa to record it because she couldn’t walk nor stand to do it.
It was a bravo performance, really. I mean, ultimately she could have messaged what had happened to her and the audience would have gone home admittedly disappointed but understanding, but she turned up - a trooper to the end - obviously in discomfort, having trouble walking, and she was magnificent. Open, funny, looked gorgeous, and once again reminding everyone what an utter loss to the world the election result last year was. This is a woman who keeps going, who gets things done, who battles on, regardless. That is an amazing thing.

The interview will air this Friday on BBC One, after the Ten O'Clock News, so usually around 10.35pm, and from what it sounded like her interview will be the first up. They’re recording the other guests on Thursday evening.

If anyone wants to ask my anything about today, or last night at the Southbank Centre, feel free, as I know I probably didn’t cover everything that well above.

My wish, besides Louis getting a great team to support his solo career, is that he appears on a talk show where he performs and David Beckham is also there as a guest. Maybe Graham Norton or James' shows. He deserves to meet his idol, and we deserve to see him fond and melt into a puddle of happiness.

‘To come up with something as quirky as Captain Jack Sparrow and then to have him be so loved, and you know, we’ve seen those pictures of you, you know when you visit hospitals or you visit schools and that must just be an amazing gift to be able to give those people…?’ [x]

anonymous asked:

Hi! I have not been completely in the loop with One Direction stuff recently, but yesterday I came on your blog and saw a post about Harry's team using kinda alienating tactics, and how it is bad for Harry's performance on charts (?). I know he debuted at number 2 on billboard hot 100, and that is a pretty big deal for any artist (louis debuted at 52)... I know more interaction would be even better for him, but I don't really see how less interaction is hurting his numbers...

For the record, Harry’s numbers aren’t bad at all, people have just argued that they could be better. But anyway, Louis debuted at #52 with almost no build-up for his song coming out (we learned that he probably had a song the day before and we didn’t know when it would be dropped) and with literally zero promo aside from a single (barely-promoted) performance on TXF. Harry debuted at #4 (not #2) (which we’re not suggesting is bad - that’s amazing for a solo launch) and quickly dropped (this is mostly what people think could have been prevented, even if only somewhat) with the full force of a huge label supporting him, a commercial and promotion for his song beginning two weeks prior to its release, a first play during a two-hour interview on BBC Radio 1, a first day where Harry’s team made a deal to get radio stations to play the song hourly, numerous interviews that first day alone (including interviews with the most popular radio shows in the U.S. and UK), a debut performance on Saturday Night Live, a Rolling Stone cover, a Graham Norton Show interview and performance, and on and on it goes. Are you……..really gonna act like the launches of their solo careers and their debut numbers are at all comparable when Harry has had a shitload of great promo beginning weeks before his song launched and Louis had none until over a month after his song launched, and even then, did not have even close to the same level of promo and had basically zero support from his own team and the label for the song behind him? 🤔🤔🤔
