Celebrated conceptual artist Ryan Gander reckons that nothing symbolises the times we live in better than the selfie: the icon of a new kind of self-regard that hardly existed just ten years ago. But, as he discovers, its roots go back hundreds of years before smartphones, and this uniquely 21st century phenomenon is just the visible tip of a much much bigger iceberg - a radical reinvention of who we are powered by the very latest digital technology. It has not just changed how much we look at ourselves, but also transformed what we see in the screen when we do. In the age of social media, when we are told to be our best selves and live our best lives, what does that really mean, and what is it doing to our sense of self?

Stewart Lee - 90s Comedian, 2005 Gentlemen Bombers Of the IRA

“There’s a couple of familiar ideas, especially his nostalgic yearning for the more polite terrorists of the IRA with their bomb warnings, but as a whole, this is Gervais setting out his stall as a provocateur and misanthrope.” Chortle
“the idea of the IRA retrospectively seeming like “gentleman” bombers is ancient hat. ” Scotsman

Stewart Lee - Text and stage variations of the phrase. 2013 onwards

“Voting to leave the EU as a protest vote is a bit like shitting your hotel bed as a protest against bad service, then realising you now have to sleep in a shitted bed.”

"Now is a time to stop complaining that we've shat the bed, and instead all learn to live together, respecting each other, in a shitty bed."

Stewart Lee - 2013 – 2014 – Paul Nuttals Of The UKIPs


German comedian Nico Semsrott has been ripping off the ‘Paul Nuttals of the UKIPs’ bit from series 3 of Comedy Vehicle (6min 50 in the video of his set). Challenged on it by a Facebook user, he has provided this explanation…
Dass das Original des Abschlussteils auf einer Idee von Stewart Lee beruht, hab ich schon im November auf Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/nicosemsrott/videos/10153695466017836/ Und auf Youtube auch so angegeben: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mo_kLKOKJHY Steht auch hier: http://www.stern.de/…/nico-semsrott–afd-anhaenger-sind… Dass ich das bei diesem Slam-Auftritt nicht erwähnt habe, ist uncool. Ich war vorher über vier Jahre nicht mehr in einem Wettbewerb aufgetreten, hatte das das ganze Jahr in meinem Solo-Programm drin, ein bisschen was verändert und dann einfach nicht mehr dran gedacht. Das war doof von mir. Tschuldigung. Zerknirscht: Nico (So, das poste ich jetzt auch nochmal unter dem Youtube-Video)
Google translate renders his explanation as;
The fact that the original of the final part is based on an idea by Stewart Lee , I’ve been in November on Facebook : [ LINK ] And on Youtube have been defined thus : [ LINK ] Is also here: [ LINK ] That I not in this Slam appearance I mention is uncool . I was not previously in a competition occurred over four years , which had all year in my solo program in there , a little bit changed and then simply not thought about it . That was stupid of me . Sorry. Contrite : Nico ( So that I post now again under the Youtube video )

Stewart Lee - Live: Aug 2013 – Feb 2014

“I don’t want to look like I’m sneering at the bloke because then there’ll be another on-line click-bait blog on the Daily Telegraph’s website saying I’m a left-wing snob with contempt for ordinary people.“

“Sure, I know how it goes. I’ll slag off Michael McIntyre and before you can say “trollbait”, some in-house contrarian at the Telegraph will have penned a blog calling me a typical leftie snob sneering at the cultural tastes of the masses. But given that he’s just been handed a BBC chat show, all I’ll say is this – he’s not exactly renowned for pushing at the boundaries, is he? No one’s ever labelled him “risqué McIntyre”, or Michael “Oof, anyone got the telephone number for the burns unit?” McIntyre. Just saying.“
