UK automotive programme (that’s how they spell it) Top Gear has three presenters. Jeremy Clarkson is TG’s Alpha. Clarkson’s booming bombastic voice, take-no-prisoners pronouncements and tortured metaphors are pure punk poetry. Richard Hammond (a.k.a., “The Hamster“) is Clarkson’s mild-mannered whipping boy, the straight man who evokes the spirit of Shemp Howard. James May (a.k.a., “Captain Slow”) is the Top Gear’s house toff. May’s intelligent insights are so laid back he’s in constant danger of falling over. I reckon Colion Noir fancies himself Jeremy Clarkson but is, in fact, increasingly, James May. May Noir find an appropriate alpha to elevate his work to the heights to which it so clearly aspires. Amen.
