GARTH MARENGHI

Originally broadcast: 20 October 2006
Directed by: Richard Ayoade, Ben Kellett
Written by: Richard Ayoade, Matthew Holness
Dean talks to Garth Marenghi
about his latest book 'The Oeuvre',
his new film 'War of the Wasps', and his
art exhibition 'Imaginearta Horrificarta'.

"It's like that philosophical question, you know, if a tree falls in the forest and I'm not there and it makes a sound, but I don't hear it, but someone records it and plays it to me at a dinner party, does that mean I'm still in the forest? And if I am, then why can't I just take a piss in the garden rather than queuing for the toilet? And that's if the toilet exists, I've been trying to use it all fucking night! I'm starting to doubt the existence of the toilet, quite frankly, at this stage in the proceedings."

Dean talks to actor Glynn Nimron about

MERRIMAN WEIR

Originally broadcast: 10 November 2006
Directed by: Richard Ayoade, Ben Kellett
Written by: Richard Ayoade, Matthew Holness
Folk guitarist Merriman Weir performs for
the audience, Dean brings up the subject of
disappointing album sales, and a video for the
title track is shown ahead of re-release.

"I went backstage and I said to the boys, I said to them, you'll like this, 'I actually went deaf at your Def Leppard concert!' And they said, 'It's spelled D-E-F.' I said 'Come on! Give me something.' Where do these soft rock bell ends get off? How the hell did they even come up with that name? I mean, what were they thinking? You know, 'We're a soft rock outfit, we want a name that denotes sleekness and power. Perhaps we should name ourselves after a wild cat, but, you know, we've also got a sensitive side, we're vulnerable, perhaps we should give this wild cat a disability. What about rheumatic panther? I'm not so sure. How about a hearing impediment? What about Deaf Leopard? Good idea, but I'll tell you what, you'd best remove one of the vowels, otherwise it'd be a stupid name!' Do you know how they spell leopard? L-E-P-P-A-R-D. That's how they spell leopard. L-E-P-P-A-R-D. Benders!"
