Big Brother - Summer 2014 (3)



Comments below extracted from discussion HERE

Marion wrote: Chris sat on th edge of the bed like a naughty boy while she stood legs apart looming over him. He backtrackedvery rapidly and agreed what he said wasn't true - but it was true. Hes just killed any chance he had of winig th show.
I thought exactly that.
Quote: The 3 new HMs do nothing but discuss eviction, addig in different names each time. They are eyond tedious. Wish hey all go tomorrow night.
I wish each and every HM goes, the sooner the better.

Marion wrote: Could there be a worse combination than a coarse minded, thick witted prostitute taking the moral high ground?
Biannca with the double n gone! Hooray!
I am in two minds about Danielle's passing - and she seems to have two minds not about herself but within!
Chris's speech in the DR partially compensated for his earlier abjectness in the face of Biannca's attack.
I think Christopher and Ashleigh are the only two housemates I like. Maybe Chris, too.
Might come to like Zoe.
Meanwhile, BB's heavy-handed manipulation continues to make this season's show a travesty.
Perhaps that's symbolised by a manipulative hand being short-circuited into the HMs' own hands each time they enter the DR.

Steven is a very uptight man channeling a relaxed mode by means of the lackadaisical chomping of toast as he engages in an exchange with BB in the DR, an exchange that will become some of the most important accumulations of seconds in his whole life when that toast will have been long since digested by his body and evacuated into the BB house toilet. But the toast itself will remain forever as frozen by that manipulative electronic hand symbolic of the modern media. Raise a glass to the transience of humanity.
Danielle was a split personality not only in behaviour but also as reflected by the different versions of her own physical face as it changed expression by the flash of each second.
Meanwhile, Marion, thanks for another witty review of proceedings.

Marion wrote: I'm The One which became apparent when BB announced that Kimberly will not be retirning to the house. Personally, I think she saw the light when Steven said Bianca was his type of girl for saying she'd have sex in the house. To be put on the same level as Bianca must have been too much for her. [...] At bedtime, Steve kept his bulging eyes firmly fixed on Helen and Ash which was rather creepy. Eventually, he took the robot toy and cuddled up to it instead of Kim. It was probably more responsive.
The Penetrating Shrewdness of Marion
That's my heading. One should not watch BB without reading Marion alongside it.

22.7.14 And Ashleigh neatly finished the show by telling BB that, the coming night, she will be dreaming about "sitting on her money throne eating strawberries." Shades of Lewis Carroll?

Marion wrote: Anyway, Steven is going to go down wth all flags flying (two of them anyway) and the waves will close over him and his tawdry passions and constant munching. It;s going to be a good week!
Hope you're right but I wouldn't bank on it yet.
Winston is still my winner ... reluctantly!
Ashleigh ought to be the eventual winner. And Helen needs to be disenfranchised. And Mark needs a tranquilliser while Ash needs his embers stoked.

Marion wrote: This is all a thousand mles away from what BB used to be.
Bent and twisted BB politics have never before spiralled so far toward a rotten core concocted from otherwise generally good and decent folk. A mutant gestalt from manipulated disparateness.

The question is - are Pav and Zoe REALLY more than averagely Machiavellian or simply perceived to be such by their credentials outside the house reported on by ex-Hms?
Am I myself Machiavellian or am I simply me? I shall never perhaps know for certain as one's objectivity is clouded by modern communication and reality TV.

Agree with all that, Marion. Thanks.
I also quite enjoyed Super Cassandra's intermittent sound-bites about the book 1984.
Meanwhile, we assume from his interview that Steven's Missionary fell short of Orwell.

Marion wrote: And more to the point, how will this play to the voting public?
Will they believe in Helen's Great Reformation? Will they see Chris as two faced or very clever?
It's a very dangerous game he's playing.
You have identified there today's big 21st century question. Only we know what we are like inside, and even then we may be wrong.

27.7.14 (later)
Completely out of the blue and without obvious context, Winston tonight asked Chris about the Illuminati. Chris, in a deadpan fashion, replies quite seriously about the Illuminatus connection with The Big Brother show which he and Winston are currently experiencing. At last, I realise why I have been watching and commenting here upon Big Brother for the last ten years.

Marion wrote: The task tonight was a dance off between teams, Street Elite and Foor Soldiers. Natually Zoe was the coach. This is the second task to showcase her theatrical skills. And no HM ever criticises her although by rights she should be under the same cloud as Pav.Hmmm...Is her Dad a member of the Illuminati?[...] She's [Helen] really on her BB journey now - very near rehabilitated. It must be the work of the Illuminati.
It was simply the way ponderously half-a-sandwich Winston (Young Churchill lookalike) brought up the Illuminati subject himself out of the blue that convinced me. It didn't seem to have a context. It just was.
As to Mark complaining to God if his eyebrows, hair-straighteners etc. weren't up to scratch in Heaven, and saying that Jesus would help him. I foresaw odalisque Danielle up there, too, somehow, tending to Heavenly affairs....


28.7.14 (later)
Zoe leading the others in the Sign of the Illuminati?

Thanks, Marion. Some knotty dilemmas there, like the motives of Chris vis-à-vis Pav vis-à-vis Ashleigh. And Mark's half-baked psychic powers... a tapping into some tutelary muse whose spiritual Wi-Fi is faulty? Or some Illuminati plot mis-channelled through Mark as decoy?
Pav to go on Friday.
PS Did Winston get his words mixed up, i.e. that when saying 'Illuminati', he really meant 'immunity'?

How could I have possibly forgotten till now? Amazing!!
Winston is also the name of the main protagonist in Orwell's 1984!
