nathan barley episode 1 part 1of 3

Replacement -- earlier video was yanked from youchoob.

The whole 25+ minute episode is worth watching through to the end of the credits, after which comes a key line of dialog. The YouTube versions of the rest of the episode seem to cut off before that point.

Brooker and Co are brilliant. The site is a sort of mock-up of the one Barley yammers about in the video, so be prepared to be offended. It is targeted at idiots.

The original word for Barley wasn't just 'idiot.' For folks who are new to Barley, here's not-work-safe backstory on the Barley character as well as a bunch of other stuff. Unfortunately no longer active, but check out the extensive archives.

Hey I tried the minimalist bread recipe, but with about 60% rye flour. Not good. It barely rose at all, and there was a lump of basically dough at the center. (I'm still eating it, naturally. Better than not having fresh bread!)

If you put that much rye flour in, sprinkle in some baking soda to give it a wee boost. This is considered blasphemy in some circles, though.

(I haven't actually tried it. So it may not work, at all)

Thanks for the tip. I love the soda flavor in soda bread, so this sounds perfect for me.
