Aye, Rich and Flint worked well as a double act.  But later on if you'd taken a shot for every time "cheesecake" was mentioned you'd end up in detox.

(Edit: I don't really have a problem with either type of cheesecake)

(well as long as you don't take it too far and forget folks are there to listen about comics and related stuff and not middle aged men belly aching as some podcasts seem to forget!)

Everything comes back to that.

I used to love that podcast; though it gradually became a bit of an anti-liberal rant.

Books & Comics / Oink
« on: 19 March, 2019, 10:13:57 pm »
I've been joyfully perusing the online scans of my favourite comic as a child, Oink.  There is so much stuff that I couldn't possibly have understood that it's ridiculous; a lot of it by Jeremy Banx who didn't seem to care he was writing for children.  And I love him for it.

First of all there was Keith Disease, the living print of a punk kid on Hector Vector's talking T-shirt.  He calls his poor owner both 'hairless' and 'pre-pubescent' and later goes on to screech out the first verse of Anarchy in the UK while carol-singing. (As an adult he obviously went back to his real surname, Flint, and sadly left us a couple of weeks ago.)

There was also Burp the alien, who actually makes me far queasier as an adult than he did then.  He meets an alien king at one point: a Prince Charles lookalike called 'King Parasite the Inbred.'

Also the violence level of the comic in general was insane; families murdering each other for laughs, kids dying comic deaths, blood and guts flowing like the prog at its goriest.

A bit of Kev O'Neill there too: his Santa Claus is revealed to be a filthy, emaciated, child-hating  Steptoe-esque degenerate in a fat suit.

I loved it, and I still do. Shame the smutty little oiks that created it were never heard from again.  Charlie who?

I want a sausage tree in my garden asap. I don't have a garden, but I want the treemeat.

Ugh. Did anyone else feel like this the next day?


A thousand times yes. I even screamed as I woke up

I feel very unhip right now, having completely gone back on what I said, gone into town and got pissed

Haha!

With a complete Volte Face I was up at the crack of dawn yesterday morning for a walk around Glendalough with the missus, followed by a 10/10 breakfast in The Wicklow Heather.
Home by lunchtime and didn't touch a drop of hooch all evening. This being in your 40's lark is shocking stuff.
Sounds splendid.  Exactly the kind of thing I really should be doing, also being in my 40s. My mental age has a lot of catching up to do though

Jason Statham.
Who doesn't like a Jason Statham action thrilller?

Works for me

My money's on an American Harry, though I'd prefer a Brit one.  Obviously a younger Mel Gibson with his hair bleached would look the part, if he had the right accent and wasn't such an appalling shitehound.

Sean Bean for Harry Ex!

Even Sean Bean is a bit long in the tooth to be Harry by now.  I find myself agreeing with lots of the choices here, then realising they would have been the right person for the job 25 years ago. 

But Frank Bruno: well, what other choice is there?

Didn't even know 'acting the maggot' was only an Irish term!

Have a good one. Me, I'll be avoiding the Mad Max hellscape of Dublin city centre but planning to enjoy the festivities one way or the other.

The system simply cannot be changed from within, the last two and a half (or whatever) years is, to my eye, a clear demonstration of this view.

And again I say, laws were changed in my country (for the better, unlike Brexit) because of two referendums.

But yet when you get a referendum, which actually does give you at least some control over your country's future, you choose not to participate, Sharky.

I've said it before: I'm not at all averse to anarchism; if not your capitalist free-for-all version, but not even exercising the little bit of say you have in government achieves fuck all.  I'm proud to say that I voted on the winning side of the gay marriage referendum and the abortion one in my own country, thus helping to make my country a more tolerant and secular society.  (And if it turned out that my side had cheated and misinformed in the run-up to voting day, I'd happily have another run at each, but that's another story.)

If you don't like what they're doing, then lobby, campaign, protest, use the means available to you to get rid of them.  Otherwise you're doing nothing to change anything.
