Brian Eno and his cat

I finally got to see The British Guide to Showing Off (dir Jes Benstock, 2011), a film about Andrew Logan and his Alternative Miss World Show.  The film is really good fun and I would definitely recommend seeing it.  Everyone is in it from Grayson Perry, to Leigh Bowery, to Carroll Baker, to Fenella Fielding.  It’s amazing.

Anyway, aside from all the outrageous costumes, glittery artwork and shenanigans, the thing I loved most about the film was Brian Eno’s cat who could definitely have his/her own film:  “The Cat’s Guide to Stealing the Show”.  During Eno’s interview the cat disrupted everything by constantly walking into frame, jumping on his shoulder and muffling his mic by sitting on it.  I can’t explain what is so funny about it, I think it’s the expression on the cat’s face – so serious looking.  At one point Eno feigns shooing the cat away but you can tell that really he loves having the cat around and he doesn’t mean it, which is presumably why the cat takes no notice whatsoever.

Forget Grumpy Cat, here, for your enjoyment (and mine), is Eno’s Cat:

About tinynoggin

I love films (anything from exploitation stuff to stylish Eastern European cinema, but I'm not really into blockbusters and modern Hollywood), music (Serge Gainsbourg, Jane Birkin, Michel Polnareff, Left Banke, Francoise Hardy, The Seeds, Love, The Zombies, etc) and books (Kurt Vonnegut, Julian Maclaren-Ross, Michel Houellebecq, Patrick Hamilton, Alan Sillitoe, and more). I take photographs with my Lomography Diana F plus or my Olympus Trip and like making stuff in my spare time.
