Now that’s... perfect

Don’t start palming off chewing gum or slinging towels.

This is a thread to recognise things that you think are untouchable and perfect. It can be anything; a book, building, person, song, event, photo, film, food or whatever. Just something you know is A1.

To start, and not to the surprise of anyone who knows me, this:

Another is on my doorstep, fortunately, and I love sitting beneath it with a coffee on a Sunday morning. It’s the grandest, most gorgeous piece of architecture:

Lastly, and not to objectify her, I think Natalie Imbruglia in the Torn video is the most beautiful any human being has ever looked, and this is coming from someone who’s had a pint with @PowerButchi

Over to you. Thatcher’s death is a given, FYI.

OK, if we're talking about people, then Winona Ryder in Reality Bites is the most perfect human I have ever seen.

Other things I love that are perfect are the Hotel Uzbekistan in Tashkent. The most sublime brutalist architecture

And finally, when I have a bad back and my youngest walks over it with her little feet. Perfect alignment.

I love the David McAlmont stuff. He was only really famous for about two years in the 90s. Hope he's ok financially and happy in life.

Can't beat "Man Getting Hit With Football" though. ARHHHH MY GROIN!!

Your periodical reminder that she was shagging Tory wanker Liam Fox, thus rendering her a crying shame. 

All football in 1987 should be stricken off, you long-haired, gorgeous shagger. You’ve ruined my weekend with that. Twat.

The interaction between Cooper and the Llama.  Just perfection in reaction and timing.


As for personal perfection.  April 1991.  I was sat in a hotel in Orlando, drinking ice cold rootbeer, eating Oreos and watching Saturday Nights Main Event.  Just the most perfect time ever.

The Simpsons. Of course, long past it’s best before date. But in those early seasons there were gems. I still think Monorail is a wonderful episode. But for purely nostalgic reasons (this would often be something we’d sing on the way home after having far too much to drink, this medley is to me a perfect section.

Phil Hartman was so important to the show and his death left a hole they never really recovered from.
