Dammit.

Why can't I meet nice blokes with degrees who love Bach and can explain the physics of music and know Newton's Laws by heart and can drive Audis sideways and who understand about holding half a breath & shooting in between heartbeats?

Bumflies.

AAaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhh....

*Is dead*

James May, talking about the physics of violins on Radio 3. Comparing Bach to Porsches, and Pythagoras and harmonics and double stopping and Chopin and GUH.

Holy crap, there is nothing more attractive than well-applied intelligence.

Yes, it was only a "Best of". Yes, there were two "Star in a Reasonably Priced Car" segments.

But it was still Top Gear, and they still showed the race to Oslo that prompted me to text [livejournal.com profile] nannyo with the phrase "Theirloveexplodesboats" - which, I think, is the first time I've ever come up with a phrase that's been adopted by a fandom :)

I'd forgotten the "Norwegian Wood" comment, too.

And all that on the same day as seeing James Martin (a "ballroom dancing Romeo who sometimes cooks a bit", apparently) spoon feed James May with Thai crab risotto.
