He’s such a fuckin prick
He's a prick but him and that kevin mc cloud and every other one of those houses as entertainment shows should all be banned (and would be in my medieval tech cult).

At some point in every one of those renovations (i 'get' to watch a lot of these programs) i see a skip at the side of the house as they tear stuff out of the place, and then the skip disappears and we all know thats just going to thrown into landfill somewhere. You'd know as well as me that the materials that bring a house up to spec in this era are basically a big pile of horror show materials engineered from the ground up not to biodegrade, yet these bannon/mccloud pricks along with the broadcasters who are backing them are turning this into some kind of upper middle class sport. Meanwhile, homeless people, limited island to live on and planet in freeflowing meltdown.

Pricks.

I'm with you on hating the amateur middleclass architects with more money than taste
But it's the same with any construction now really - like everyone's yelling to build heck knows how many new homes in Ireland every year
Construction is a massive waste and carbon generator

Every solution is a new problem

And tbh, these rich folks are usually more likely to be able to afford new cutting edge low-energy tech or products that are re- or up-cycled or natural products like cedar cladding or wool insulation or restored antique fixtures and whatnot
It's the rest of us buying cheap furniture in Ikea that lasts about 36 months that probably do more damage

none of it matters,
eventually, we won't be able to avoid whatever nuclear war or disease pandemic or systems collapse that takes most of us out - can't walk a tightrope forever

So may as well have fun while the party's still happening - but this definitely includes hating on mid-tier TV celebs with whatever rationale you're having yourself

I mean, seriously, you could use this rationale to justify literally anything. It's some hardcore nihilism and based on what you write on here you do actually care about things.
