SPY TV: Sara on tape

greenspun.com : LUSENET : ASTRUC : One Thread

Did you watch the show? What did you think? We didn't get to see it here in the United States, so fill us in!!

-- Sara Astruc (saraastruc@aol.com), June 08, 2000


If I weren't out drinkin and whorin all night, and, mostly, if I were living in Britain instead of America, I would have watched the show. Anyhoo, I hope it went well. Sounds like it would have probably been good.

Yeah, I saw it last night. It was quite interesting and the reason I came to this site. Looking forward to reading your diaries.

-- Simon Jones (morpheous50@hotmail.com), June 09, 2000.

I saw it and yeah it was excellent. Great exposure. In fact it even gave me a few ideas that might spur me on in terms of style. I wouldn't mind but I was watching it trying to get to sleep, but it kept me awake. Fascinating stuff. Sex, day-to-day stuff, work, partying. It had a lot in there. Pity I am not single. I'd have been over there. :))

Well done.

Tony: I've been wondering where you were!

Simon & Jon: Thanks so much for stopping by! Glad you liked the show.

-- Sara Astruc (saraastruc@aol.com), June 09, 2000.

It was the first time I've seen the show and it's the reason I came here. I can't help think that you must be mad to air you personal details to people you don't know, but if it makes you feel good then that's great. You looked quite good-looking and the camara certainly likes you, but came across a bit false and edgy, mabey nerves?. They showed a fair bit of you in the first 15 minutes, but then went on to other subjects.

It made me wish I'd made a list if all my ex's over the years (this was the main focus of the show), but I'm only 21 so plenty of time yet.

I'll check the rest of your site out over the next few days. Keep up the good work.

The show was superb. I have only just watched it as I was working and had to video it. When I get a few spare minutes i'll look at the rest of your site

I've finally seen the show (well, a one-inch-square version of it). I'm going to save my opinions for a journal entry, but in the main, I think it went well.

I am really thrilled to have all these new readers!

-- Sara Astruc (saraastruc@aol.com), June 10, 2000.

Hi,thought the show was great,so were you.Just had a read of some of your entries,very informative.Keep it up.I'll try to keep up with events and hopefully we can have a chat.

-- paul (bellyofbeer@hotmail.com), June 10, 2000.

Yes i watched the program, and i saw your entry. i always take down all the addresses that appear on the show and i took down yours and it was the first i went to the next day. what do i think of your entry? um... well they only talked about it for a short time, and didnt show many webpage views, so i had to actually go to it to see how amazing your site is. yup it is. well, if anyone wants more addresses of online diaries that appeared on the show feel free to email me. i also have some addresses of some astonishing webcam sites if you like :-)

Thanks for your kind words. I'd love it if you posted the links to the other sites here, so my readers can check them out, as well. If you're unsure of how to make the links in HTML, send 'em my way and I'll take care of it!

-- Sara Astruc (saraastruc@aol.com), June 11, 2000.

the show was really fascinating. i have foolishly prided myself on never taking down a web address from a tv advert or program or whatever, trying to kid myself that i'll find what i want on the web *my* way without being told by so-called opinion formers in the media. but i just couldn't resist writing down fauve and dantewoo on the back of my hand in biro to check out later. i'm glad i did. your site is quite special - lots of layers of honesty to dig through {i like the way you explain that some people are 2 real ones joined together for example}.

an aside [i'm a bit of a rambler, sorry] : heard michael ondaatje on the BBC world service last night describing how art is truer than history, because "dry" "objective" historical facts can be manipulated, whereas at least art is a self-acknowledged invention that, paradoxically carries the heartfelt intention of the artist [oh shit ondaatje was so much more eloquent].

good luck in your quest for truth sara

If you have a particular interest in online diary sites, and would like to see others, here are some other names that appeared on the show 4Later:SpyTv on Channel 4 or Phwoar (thats what some people call it here, i presume you know y): 1. www.spacegirl.org : colourful site, nice interface about a girl in her late 20s. site is too commercial though. 2. then there is www.dantewoo.com about a guy, site not very user-friendly, text a bit small, but it is wierd and freaky(in a good way)

however, about the webcam sites, um, im not sure i would like to post them here as some are a bit too exclusive and this may be a family friendly site (or may not). however, these are ok: www.izzicam.com girl webcam www.king-cam.com if you are one of the people who type the address into the address bar, please dont type in www.kingcam.com by mistake as i did as you will really be dismayed - it is one of the most appaling sites i have ever been unfortunate enough to stumble upon. you could be putting your life in danger. i mean that site is i think about elvis or is supposed to be, but it just doesnt have any meaning and no objective.

well thats about it for now, ive bored you enough.

-- RetroBlaster (dangerous140@hotmail.com), June 14, 2000.

Sara, could not believe the show - hooked in spite of myself by the concepts it and you presented. set the tape machine and went to bed rather than watch - never re-watched the tape, just visited your site the next day... now had a chance to look into your site and other on-line diarists (mostly way inferior) and still struck by your openess and honesty. incredible. marvellous. thanks.

I sent the tape last Friday, Sara -- I hope it's arrived safely!

-- Jackie Danicki (nein@freeuk.com), June 19, 2000.

I thought you were pretty dire. The whole show itself wasn't too bad, but all the hype over your page was annoying. When I actually got here and read it I wondered what all the fuss was about, it's odds on that you make a lot of the stuff up anyway and leave out chosen details to make youself look better. You looked quite fat as well.

Didn't you hear?
