That must have been a very intense experience, Shark. It's not a conversation I've ever had, but I did share many night shifts with a largely unrepentent bloke who'd served 6 years for robbery, possession of firearms and supply of drugs, and while he was perfectly affable (and ever since hails me loudly on the street whenever our paths cross) that was quite edgy enough for me.  Living with a murder is presumably a whole different level, and added to that length of incarceration, it's hard to imagine.

Indeed, Tordels. This guy is repentant, it's tearing him apart. Intense is exactly the right word. It was difficult to find anything to say, especially with being full of beer, and there were a couple of quite unnerving moments. I get the feeling that, like you, I've made a friend for life because I listened and didn't turn my face away. 

It ruined the bloody film, though! How am I supposed to watch Dredd from now on without remembering that conversation? Some people have no consideration...

Moral of the story is: Dont try to bond with your dealer.

Hmmm... There's an oddball road-trip comedy action buddy movie in that...

Ideal? Johnny Vegas BBC3 show. Written, I think, by Tony Mills/Burgess.
Be excellent to each other. And party on!

If that was my fault, I'm genuinely very sorry.
