Re. Florence Welch and Miranda Hart: I've had revelation...

... They are sisters of the soul. Florence is the fantasy that Miranda's comedy character dreams of. She canters. She has harps on stage. She bravely sings like a sheep - and people like it.
I'll bet the Miranda character derives such hope from the existence of Florence and the Machine.

I rather wish there was a Miranda episode with Miranda gamely giving Glastonbury a go.

Hahaha! I totally agree. This should be in chat though, surely, for more traffic?!

thecatfromjapan Fri 26-Jun-15 23:48:45

<sigh> I am revealed publicly as a muppet when accessing the website from a 'phone.

Arf Arf! Are you a teacher, and hence have a vague reason to be in staff room or have you just totally fucked it up? grin

You are right (except for posting it in here!). I absolutely hate her voice - would rather listen to Miranda H, which is (to quote the wonder that is Bananarama) really saying something.

I observed earlier that Pete Doherty appears to have morphed into Paul Merton, but can't find anybody to agree with me.

I was scouting the section like a sad little ghost, hoping for a thread on how to cope with the heartbreak of saying goodbye to class you are extremely fond of. hmm
As you see, I didn't quite get the hang of the whole starting a thread thing.grin

Remus, she's winning me over. I'm clearly a bit vulnerable at the moment. I liked the foo fighters cover, especially with the 'feel the love' horn section!

she is a hippy chic isnt she? but i enjoyed watching her tonight.....bravely singing like a sheep.

i once read somewhere she has aspergers....i loved that she fell over and just carried on regardless and made reference to it and then ran over to her mum.....


Haggisfish Sat 27-Jun-15 00:02:36

Did Florence fall over? I missed that bit! I know what you mean about leaving classes you are fond of. They are casually asking me if they will have me again next year. I casually reply I'm not sure. We are all thinking 'I reeeealy hope so'!!!

That is lovely, vicar. I'm now thinking of her v lovingly as a kind of Statue of Liberty (but smaller, and not a statue) and a beacon for all the awkward, odd-bod, odd sock children I know.

vicarinatutu Sat 27-Jun-15 00:07:43

a beacon indeed! thats why i like her.

no make up.
falls over
talks about falling over
goes to her mum during set.

i love her.

im always falling over. i feel better now that i know ive not fallen over in front of millions of people.

yes she fell over bless her. and hats off....she didnt miss a beat.

I didn't see her fall. Wasn't actually looking at the screen, just covering my ears to try to drown out the shrieking.

I fell face down in the theatre once, with an icecream in each hand. Not my finest moment.

LatinForTelly Sat 27-Jun-15 00:12:38

Ooh yes, she is cantering isn't she?

I am watching her whilst researching BT line faults and thinking that I should go to Glastonbury one day before I get really old. And wondering whether there are some nice loos that you can pay to go to.

thecatfromjapan Sat 27-Jun-15 00:13:46

That's quite Miranda-ish, Remus.

I am like a very short Miranda crossed with Minnie Mouse. This is not something I am proud of.

vicarinatutu Sat 27-Jun-15 00:18:48

im always falling over.

i did it last week. trying to impress a bloke....lunch on the patio....prosecco....pate....toast......

my chair leg ended up over the step and i fell complete wih chair, plate and glass of prosecco. i bathed in it. how lavish.
the bottle survived. my white jeans didnt.

blokey just sat and watched me.....then said he was amazed by his lightening reaction to save me.
(he didnt even attempt it!)

it was very funny.

the week before that i fell of a plank. trying to walk over a building site. i stood too near the edge and the whole plank went taking me with it into a ditch.

i am a clumsy oaf. luckily im also very entertaining.

<shudder> Glastonbury loos. <shudder>

I'm not a teacher. Am off to start PGCE soon. Will undoubtedly be posting here, weeping and begging for help soon enough.


I once slid spectacularly down a full flight of stairs and ended up at the feet of some very startled Year 7 pupils, who picked me up and then carried on walking!

I wonder if Florence's mum is like Miranda's? I wonder if she's relieved and bemused by all this?

I spotted Patricia Hodge in Peter Jones the other day. Which struck me as a very Miranda's mum thing to do.

thecatfromjapan Sat 27-Jun-15 00:25:55

...a very Miranda's mum place to be ...

vicarinatutu Sat 27-Jun-15 00:28:09

florences mum looked lovely and very normal. it was sweet.

i shouldnt be here really you not a teacher.

LatinForTelly Sat 27-Jun-15 00:32:56

I think I read something from her mum once. In a Sunday supplement. I think I remember she seemed down to earth and concerned for Florence in a motherly way.

Glastonbury looks huge doesn't it? Like a city.
