    How Old Are You?

    No, not my birthday I'm afraid. Just feeling, tired, weary and bloody hot. We're in the middle of a heatwave here and I've been cleaning out rubbish and moving furniture for 10 hours in one of our shops today. One room of it is air conditioned, but it can only do so much when it's 40 degrees...

    Worst Movie EVER?

    I couldn't agree more. A 'good', bad film is far more enjoyable on so many more levels than a big budget failure. Often overacted, over use of cgi and special effects at the expense of storyline and character development.

    Worst Movie EVER?

    Perhaps not the worst ever ratings or takings wise, but in my opinion, two of the worst movies I've seen are: The Producers - 2005 The film version of the Mel Brooks stage play. Christ, this was bad. The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen - 2003. Droll, boring, stupid plotline.

    Strange Things As Food & Drink

    In my younger days, I did try some snake rice wine at a snake farm in Thailand. This was a large bottle of wine into which some poor serpent was coiled steeping. It tasted pretty vile, a little like sweet vinegar and cost a lot. It was claimed to have had some medicinal properties, insomuch as...

    Death Masks Of The Infamous (Criminals, Etc.)

    I've created this thread under 'Fortean Crime' as many criminals of note had death masks made after their demise. That being said, many well known people in their day not of the criminal fraternity also had death masks made of them. It's a topic I find rather interesting, to see the face of...

    At least it's a fairly harmless activity, unless one is in too much of a rush to enjoy oneself and hasn't let the cake cool down enough from the oven. I wonder what the good folk from the Great British Bake Off would think of this?

    The appeal of fame, fortune, Hollywood and and imagined easy life just holds too bigger sway over some young, pretty mercenary people and those in the position of power are more than happy to indulge them, particularly if their own star is on the wane.
