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...
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.
You know how I sat on those shears?
The shock almost had me in tears!
Then that lawnmower
Really made you sore
And confirmed your worst gardening fears.
Tony Stark, he lives up to his name
Cashing on his great Iron Man fame
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...
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...
One day I will have lots of cash
and away I will go, like a flash.
To the bookmakers
My local money takers
Then I'll be back at a dash.
Like a machine that was missing a cog
There once was this poor, lovelorn frog
Just listening to that new Anderson Paak album and he samples Rodney Dangerfield lamenting on The Johnny Carson Tonight Show: "This girl told me, come on over tonight, there's nobody home. When I went over, there was nobody home!"
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.
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 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.
I peel spuds with my latest invention
Patent pending, I hasten to mention.
Never mind that small knife
It'll just cause you strife
Now you'll have lots of mash, no contention.
The reason Queen Bess liked to dally
With potato magnate Walter Raleigh
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...
I have this Toblerone I got for Christmas I still haven't started. I don't mind the taste, but they're so bloody awkward to eat. You break of a triangle with your fingers and its difficult enough, plus you get chocolate on your hands, but you could crack a tooth trying to bite off a triangle...
