On Englishness



Shall we take a look at the teaser of the soon to be widely acclaimed Blueprint visual production, we will hear Audrey Hepburn' lyrical voice singing: "All I want is a room somewhere/ Far away from the cold night air." If we transpose this original predicate to the year 2010 and the city of London, we can draw the satisfaying conclusion that the Blueprint team is composed of a bunch of dirty bums living in a cold-ass city. Danny Brady's elegant appearance and his healthy breakfast seem to confirm this thesis.
But what are we to do of the recent addition to the team, Arizonian manual acrobat Marty Murasky? Indeed, the conception of Englishness does not give much room for sun, cactuses and ditches in the middle of the desert. Will his professional debut be tarnished by a renunciation to his origins to the profit of the grayness of Old England?
We can see the complex problematic that Make Friend With the Colour Blue lays, for, despite a self-proclaimed British identity, the brand is slightly trying to take over the world. We will not attempt to solve the issue, for we good-heartedly leave it to Dan Magee. Nevertheless we shall bring him support by getting drunk with cheap beer while discovering his work.
