late nite observations

I was up late one night last week, casually surfing around the channels (during the adverts to Sexcetera. Sheesh) – and stumbled upon a play with soft core potential. Game on, right? Only, there was a woman to the side, staring back at me, furiously waving her arms all over the place. Took me a while to figure out that she wasn’t part of the nekkid rompings (which never materialised anyway) but a super-imposed woman giving it the hand jive for our hard of hearing brethren. She was signing away, very animated – but just one question. Why make her so goddamn big? She covered almost a third of the screen and was very distracting with the arms flailing and hands flidding. I thought they were supposed to be deaf – not blind.

And what’s wrong with subtitles anyway??
