Hello. I hope 2018 is treating you reasonably well so far.

You may have noticed that there was no blog post for the last few podcasts. That was due to ongoing hacking issues (the AI threat so far seems mainly to be concerned with randomly inserting links to athletic footwear sites). These appear to have settled down for the time being but the hacks encouraged me to finally get round to having the whole thing redesigned, clearing out a lot of the old stuff on here and making it a more useful companion to the podcast and the Adam Buxton App.

I hope the new site will be up by early April at the latest, when the podcast will return for another weekly run of 10 episodes or so.

‘But how will I fill the yawning chasm of meaninglessness between now and then Buckles?’ Good question.


In early February I’ll be uploading not one but two amazing podcast convos with current superstars of American film making which may or may not have something to do with the release of their upcoming projects. My conversation with actor, writer, director Greta Gerwig talking about her wonderful film Lady Bird is recorded and should go up in mid February. I am also due to talk with director Paul Thomas Anderson about Phantom Thread his latest film that features one last (well, he says it’s his last) brilliant, occasionally hilarious performance from Daniel Day Lewis and lovely music from Jonny Greenwood. I hope that podcast episode will come out in early February.


In the meantime, you may find some comfort watching and rewatching Adam Buxton’s Old Bits on DVD or HD digital download. It’s a live show filmed at the BFI Southbank last year and features a lot of the material I’ve been doing live since about 2013, including solid gold timeless classics (some of which have appeared in some form on my ‘8 Out 10 Cats Does Countdown’ appearances) like my take on The Beach Boys with Jools Holland, me as Saul from Homeland defending myself against accusations of abusing the NHS, administering sexy therapy to Prince Willy & Royal Katie, and Brad Pitt singing songs of pain and toilet training. There’s also the traditional reading of the YouTube comments and a never before seen episode of Country Man on there as well as outtakes from the live recording. When the time comes to recycle your old DVDs, this is the one you’ll want to hang on to FOREVER.

You can buy it from Gofasterstripe HERE

Speak to you soon.

  • hi adam, just to let you know that i bought my current car some 11 years ago for the arrival of my first daughter. i have cherished that vehicle since but nearly destroyed it this morning traveling to work. the a&j xmas podcast had been saved for a bleary january commute. at the point where you & joe were discussing brittney spears’ perfume [where she milked a corpse] i approached a tricky corner & i couldn’t see for tears. no harm done – even it there had – it would have been worth it – sort of – well not really, but you know?

    i love you, bye

  • Hi Adam, I sent you a story for the X-mas podcast that might well have been one of those that you mentioned appalled you – sorry if that was the case…. I noticed that you re-tweeted those mangled idioms and so thought maybe I could make amends by adding a few that I’ve heard at work over the years: “full guns ahead”, “I’m snowed in left, right and centre”, “I just need a ball-point figure”, “making a storm out of a tea-cup”, “write it down for prosperity” and my favourite “just to make sure we’re all driving towards the same hymn sheet” – that’s important. I also wondered whether you’d seen this Spoon interview on Pitchfork? (https://pitchfork.com/features/5-10-15-20/spoons-britt-daniel-on-the-music-that-made-him-an-indie-rock-lifer/). Finally I wanted to mention that my wife and I really enjoyed spending an evening regarding your old bits on Friday. We saw your show in Manchester in May 2016 (Opera House) so the DVD let us re-live that evening, was great fun. Cheers!
