I really want to watch the Roland Rat version now.

On your own head be it...

Well, I wasn't expecting that.  Here goes...

Sniddleprang rolk lurgerfrink lufko!

Hmmm. Much as I like the word 'sniddleprang*', it's things like this that make people think you're trolling rather than debating.

*I had a Thai girlfriend called Prang, so maybe I'm just being nostalgic.

According to IMDB, he played him in the Roland Rat version!

I'm not mad about the Disney Christmas Carol (I'm watching it too!), but it's certainly a faithful adaptation. My go-to's are Muppets, Alastair Sims' and Patrick Stewart's ones, and of course Scrooged.

I really want to watch the Roland Rat version now.  I haven't seen the Patrick Stewart one, but I've heard him read the audiobook, and it was perfect.

I'm just in the middle of watching Disney's 3d animation Christmas Carol.  I'm a sucker for a Dickensian Christmas and they've done a decent job of it.

I can't help thinking, though: I don't know if Brian Blessed has ever played the Ghost of Christmas Present, but if not, somebody's missed a trick.

'I shouldn't need a passport.' 'But you do need one.' 'But I shouldn't.' 'But you do.' Think I'll take a break from this particular argument and make myself a mojito.
It's not about the passport, or the "need" for one, itself. It's about natural human rights and how some humans restrict and/or curtail the rights of other humans.  The passport is just an example of one of the many manifestations of this idea. You're right, though, I'd rather have a mojito than argue about it as well. Email me one over...

Get your 3d printer ready.

Seem to remember Old Tankie being a staunch Leaver, though I don't think he's been around lately.  Despite loathing his political opinions, I liked the guy.

I agree completely, but YOU need a passport and trying to argue at customs that it's not fair won't get you residency. But in the EU, everyone can do it.

Try moving to Australia without a visa. What should be true and what is are two different things.

I've a vague memory of that song from the first time round. Don't think I've heard it since.  I love it. I'm going to listen to it now as I clean my boat.

Trading, loads of funding for local heritage and infrastructure projects, and being able to live in other countries with a minimum of hassle have been nice too.

Apologies, Tordels. I'm pretty bad at projecting irony myself - and, of course, detecting it. Maybe I'll try posting ironic content in italics from now on :)

Still, I gather the general feeling is that the EU will punish the British for leaving it, reducing our country to a virtual ruin. This does not seem like the behaviour of a democratic and enlightened body to me - although I admit I've not been following proceedings very closely at all.

The EU is not punishing Britain for leaving - the rules for leaving haven't changed from the start.  Fair enough, the British public were not properly informed on those rules in the run-up to the referendum.

A good metaphor I heard was to imagine you're leaving a golf club (not that I've got a clue about being part of a golf club).  The golf club says 'well, now you're leaving, you no longer have easy access to our facilities'.  Not really a punishment.  It's what happens when you leave an organisation.

Doesn't mean the organisation is perfect, but it's a stretch to call that a punishment.

It’s a very different beast than the original, a more muted, bitty horror that gets under your skin rather than dazzle you like Argentos. My vote for best horror remake (even though it’s resemblances to the original are minimalist, it’s more an alternative retelling of the Mater Suspiriama short story) of the decade.

Cool, think that's going to be my Sunday afternoon hangover viewing.  Probably not a bad thing to deviate from the original; remakes that are too derivative (Psycho with Vince Vaughn, FFS] don't always work.

(Afterthought - except for when they do, like Scarface and Cape Fear.)
