Quote from: confettiinmyhair on January 07, 2024, 09:22:54 PMI was chatting to a mate in the pub about nostalgic memories and we got talking about Sasha Baron Cohen's Ali G. I proposed an idea that without the influence of Ali G there would be no resurgence of UK Hip Hop in mainstream culture. So in a sense Ali G led to mainstream acceptance of UK hip hop in the early 2000s, and that it was ok for this culture to be homegrown and not just whatever pop culture we got from the East Coast and West Coast of the USA. Without Ali G there is no Central Cee, no Dave, no Drill, no roadmen. Ali G changed things.

QuoteThat's a by-product of our viciousness... Monorails are great, so it makes me sad, but at the same time if something's going to happen in The Simpsons, it's going to go wrong, right?

Quote from: Jack Shaftoe on January 08, 2024, 08:24:05 AMSlightly more seriously, I'm pretty sure Ross's ex and her partner in Friends not being the butt of the joke, while Ross being a dick about it frequently was the butt of the joke did a lot to normalise gay relationships in the UK and US (among straight people, I suspect gay relationships were already normalised among gay people).
