Best film of all time ... ever

The best film of all time ever is.....

With '000s of quotable quotes, a great story and lots and lots of excitement, it's hard to beat.

"Hot as hell in here"
"Yeah man, but it's a dry heat!"

Nights out that pay for themselves

They don't happen very often......

But when the do, it is excellent.

There was once a bar, with a wall, and an impromptu stage and my friends and I would get up there and dance, dance for the crowd. And on one huge night out many young ladies stuffed a large quantity of folding type money into the waistbands of our Calvins.

I got home, took off my smalls and all sorts of money that I'd missed earlier fell out.

I am Randy Jackson

I was watching mumblemumblemumble this evening and Randy said EXACTLY what I said but 3 seconds later.

So, I must be Randy Jackson!  Yeah, Dog!

A rose by any other name costs as much

Hmmm, I always get a little grumpy around this time of year. The crass commercialism gets me down a bit. 

Incredibly expensive roses, bad service in over-crowded restaurants etc etc.

The doesn't seem to be a Valentine equivalent of "Bah, Humbug!" but if there were, I'd be using it.

Interestingly enough, Japan has something called White Day. This is a month after Valentine's Day (was going to abbreviate to VD but then, unaccountably, decided not to). The boys give gifts to the girls who bought them stuff a month earlier. So the girls have to show their cards first, all perfectly normal and to be expected in Japan.

The thing that makes me laugh is that this new day was invented in 1978 by the national confectionary industry association. Bloody Hell!

I would post the Wikipedia link but my stupid browser won't let me. Google "white day" if you are interested enough.

Bah, Humbug!

I will kill your monstah!

Beowulf. It's a bad film with Ray Winstone.

However not as bad as "Monster Ark" (which doesn't have Ray in it, just to be clear).

Much better films with Ray in are:

"Love, Honour & Obey"

& of course

"Sexy Beast" which completely changed the way I view Ben Kingsley.
