    Considering the deafening volume of whingeing that greeted the 2016 version, I'm tempted to ignore every Ghostbusters from now on, past and future. Including the cartoon.

    Terry Pratchett

    Brief Good Omens update: on Mark Kermode's podcast this week, he interviewed David Arnold who's composing the music, and they revealed… Mark is playing the theme tune on harmonica! Apart from that, it goes through different time periods, past, present and future, and Heaven and Hell for good...

    Except it was P. Diddy, not Kanye. So all black people look the same to you, I suppose! I am offended on behalf of an entire race!

    Max Headroom Pirate TV Broadcast (1987)

    Care to share? One of the most compelling things about this is the utter mystery of who was behind it, even decades later. No one admitted it, no one apparently knew who it was. I'm even sceptical about "some bloke on the internet knows" admissions.

    I hope this isn't turning into another INT21 misogyny thread. We all have our problems, male and female, some we can overcome, some we have to live with. Love and relationships shouldn't be a competition. Some work out, some don't, and the reasons can be simple or complicated. There's no...

    Who Agrees?

    Isn't it more to do with society forbidding men from showing weakness, so when you do find yourself, as a man, in a place that's not too healthy, physically or mentally, you are far more reluctant to even admit to yourself, never mind anyone else? If we could get over the stigma of poor mental...

    Old-School Cool

    It's a pity Gone With the Wind has been repurposed as that old racist movie these days, because Vivien Leigh was brilliant in it. She was great elsewhere too, but nothing that would overshadow GWTW.

    The trouble is, the far right is providing hope of a false kind to young and middle-aged white men, since that's what happens when they get told they're the enemy from all sides. If you didn't think you were racist, sexist, a potential (maybe actual) rapist, a violent offender and all that...

    I once voiced the opinion that PF weren't completely brilliant in an online discussion some years ago (not on here) and received a torrent of abuse. So be careful with that opinion, Eugene. For the record, I love the first album.

    Philip K. Dick

    It's good, isn't it? Really faithful, which helps because it's one of his best books, and the animation just keeps it this side of unreal. Still waiting on that Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch film that was supposed to star Gary Oldman. In the 1990s.

    The 'Sharpened Pencils Up The Nostrils Examination' Legend

    The one I heard had a pupil stand up in the middle of an exam and shout "I'M AN ORANGE!!!" When the invigilator approached to calm him down, he screamed "DON'T SQUEEZE ME!!!" Bit more comical than suicide, but the exam anxiety theme is there.

    They won't give you the rest of the season until it's broadcast on UK TV (not sure what channel it's on here). That happens weekly. We're about a week behind the US broadcast, so episode 2 will be next Saturday, 3 will be the Saturday after that, and so on. I do know from a friend that Amazon...
