September always seems to come and go in the blink of an eye – we spend the whole month panicking about the students coming back, and all of a sudden, campus is filled with them. This September was exceptionally tough and ended with me doing a 70 hour week. Oof. I need the whole of October to recover.
Richard Ayoade interviewed by Adam Buxton
A couple of years ago, we saw Adam interview Richard at the Emmanuel Centre in London. This year, they were both at the Royal Festival Hall talking about Richard’s new book and his career. Richard was definitely more relaxed this time around, but again the audience Q&A was oddly negative. I don’t get why people try to be funny by being cruel? Still, Richard handled the stupid questions well and they both made me laugh.
Louis Theroux interviewed by… Adam Buxton!
Continuing the theme of Dr Buckles interviewing my favourite men, we were back at the Royal Festival Hall to see Adam and Louis. He was also discussing his new book, a memoir in which Adam was mentioned 7 times (he counted). It’s always a joy to listen to the two of them chat, and the Southbank Centre has put it out as a podcast for everyone to enjoy.
Normally, I pick 5 things each month for my favourite things, but I outside of the two Southbank Centre events, I have done nothing else of note other than work – no books, no TV shows, no new music. I’m quite tired now.
