I REALLY love Noel in this thing! Lounging about in his king's chair, letting down the guard and really giving it straight. almost every single one of his lines is a wonderful and hilarious sound bite! Liam still comes across as the most crucial element as he embodies the real "spirit" of the whole "movement". His is a personification of the importance of every single one of the CDs sold by these bands whether they are squeezed to the point of cracking in someones closet, last refuge predumpster or stinking like cherry incense in a music resale shop, sold fourteen years ago by college freshmen who already knew better for 40oz beer money. and dear dear sweet Damon. I know his interview was conducted from a pub but based on his demeanor it felt, appropriately so, more like the cafeteria of a resthome/halfway house. I only wish they let him wear his teal scrubs, patient bracelet and mario batali shoes. And the ever-mobile massive attack guy on meta assignment, skirting the outer limits with the big picture...and what was up with that woman who at the end praising robbie williams' arrival? they kept playing snippets of his music and then back to her--building in reverence, I was waiting for the laugh track or the ol' trombone line. Robbie really makes you wanna rethink all the oasis albums! And then here comes Toby----so perfect to see him appear as an engineer of the things to an extent. and the pulp guy sitting in the window in the what looks like the bedroom where he grew up. he was REAL good! and bookending the thing with 'wonderwall' the oasis cover band was just gorgeous, perfect. Finally I didnt realize english people had such intense and somewhat ironic big brother resentment with the US. When they want to--their capitalism obviously works just as good as our capitalism.

Oh, Tim. I was wondering what you would say, and sir you did not disappoint. Thank you. I laughed REALLY loud and REALLY hard.

I'll jump in a bit after dinner but until then...

Yes, Noel in the king's chair...

so perfect at what I dare say is his pinnacle with

"and then you've got Damon Albarn on the ten o'clock news. I ask you...what the fuck is all that about?"

still baffled, all these years later

oh and

"if I knew we were making history, I'd have worn a better shirt"
