If you've convinced yourself you've banished it, that will probably be enough to get rid of it. If it hasn't returned in years, then I doubt it will return at all, it might just be something you "grow out of", for want of a better phrase, like sleepwalking.
Are there increasing numbers of dangerous cults arising in the world right now? Seems to be one in the news every week now. There's even a new one mentioned as the first story in the latest FT. Say what you like about Christianity, most people don't go to church to fire crossbow bolts at each...
Hmm... WWDitS was OK, I suppose, I laughed a few times and it is promising, but I was a shade underwhelmed. Not as funny as the film, basically. Ghosts does much the same thing (without the snazzy visual effects) and is a lot funnier. Apparently it takes a while to find its feet, though. The...
Reading about online, Madge might have done better without displaying the Palestinian flag, didn't go down too well. And Iceland started showing Palestinian flags too when the camera cut to them during the voting (and cut away pretty sharpish). I don't watch Eurovision for politics! It's nice...
I must be really lucky, I've never had this problem when I've ordered a parcel (touch wood). The new Ken Loach film asks us to take pity on a parcel delivery driver - I'm guessing it won't find a sympathetic audience.
Fortean issue in Lost Highway: the plot's about a man accused of murdering his wife. It features Robert Blake's final role before he was arrested for murdering his wife. (Blake was freed after a court case).
Well, the bookie's favourite won for a change, congratulations Netherlands, even if I thought your song was a bit ho-hum. But that voting was brutal, UK in last position, maybe a sign to stop with the quasi-inspirational anthems? They don't do us any good. The Swedish singer's face when the...
Hey, Thunderbirds are Go is back (this morning), and the word is Jeff Tracy is actually going to be in this series now. Voiced by... The Six Million Dollar Man himself, Lee Majors! So he's Ash from Evil Dead's dad, and the Tracy brothers' dad too. Busy man.
You have to pull a lot of tricks to do a successful stage séance, get to know the background of the participants so you can pretend the spirits have info about them, learn table tipping, etc. It's a good thing you don't have to do the ectoplasm thing anymore! I recommend Derren Brown's Séance...
His fantasy novel Eyes of the Dragon is being adapted for TV:
Same TV channel as 11/22/63 and Castle Rock, so it might be OK. Not that I've seen Castle Rock yet. And EotD is not one of my favourite Kings, either.
The mighty lizard looked likely to poop
as it fell from the sky with a swoop
The band S Club 7
Turned their gaze towards heaven
And the creature splattered the whole group.
I don't want to sound here too drastic
But I know what to do with waste plastic
Anyone watch the new Shane Meadows series, The Virtues? Not much happened in episode 1, but a lot went on, if you see what I mean. Excellent Stephen Graham performance, but I suppose Meadows knows how to play to his strengths by now. Intrigued to see what the big secret is.
Denmark was so sweet I almost got toothache, liked Latvia too (bit repetitive, but shame it didn't go through), Norway's yodeller (?) completely made their performance, Albania - why? She wasn't even in tune. It was the cleavage, wasn't it? Ireland oddly subdued, but bad luck anyway. Malta's...
