Saw a ripped poodle today. Not just one of those tall poodles, some kind of crossbreed. Totally hench, but still looked like Terry McDermott.

One of Rorschach's lesser known journal entries.

I remember the 1980s BBC double bills, (one of which coincided with a party/barbecue/bonfire that was going on around the back of the farm cottages I lived in at the time which somehow resulted in me and my little brother sitting quietly on the settee watching it with a bunch of bikers), and the channel 4 "Worst of Hollywood" stuff, (which is where I first saw Godzilla Vs The Smog Monster, as well as things like The Thing With Two Heads and Santa Claus Conquers The Martians).

There was also a Sci-Fi season on BBC2 at some point, (possibly a tuesday night), with things like Invaders From Mars and War of The Worlds, and they'd also show horror films on ITV on a sunday night, which we'd switch over to after That's Life went off.

There was a lot of made for TV guff among the ITV films like Curse of The Black Widow, but I also remember stuff like the 1979 Dracula, (unfortunate timing of one scene put me off having jam in my rice pudding for a while), Alien and The Fog.

When The Fog was first shown, my mum thought it might be a bit too scary for my little brother to watch, although somehow fine for me even though I wasn't much older. She didn't want to upset my brother though, so she pretended that I wasn't allowed to watch it either and we both went through to our bedroom and, as usual, I climbed into the top bunk bed and my brother went into the bottom bunk. My mum then came through into our bedroom when the film was starting and lifted a bundle of 'washing' off the top bunk and carried it through into the living room.

It was about an hour later when my brother asked me a question, got no response, discovered I wasn't there and came through to the living room to find me watching the end of The Fog and eating a haggis supper from the chippy. He wasn't very happy, but did get some chips.

Don't think it's that surprising.

Most famous British detective fiction writers = Agatha Christie & Arthur Conan Doyle, both around at a time when drawing room seances were a thing amongst bored/grieving posh folk, and both of whom incorporated supernatural elements into their stories from time to time.

The Wing Whales were definitely also called the Nommo in the Armoured Gideon stories, (and were actually something else as well, but we won't go into that), and that sticky-up grate thing is definitely part of the jaw on his other head.

It's also possible that at least one of the writers of The Thirteenth Floor was familiar with this building in Falkirk.

Bit more than that, it seems. It has more pages than the two Hibernia collections combined, (about another Hibernia collection's worth).

Will someone please provide Judge Slocum with a first name? It's an open goal, really.

Kit E Slocum, and he had a secret propensity for dyeing his hair strange colours under his helmet.

How come the hardback edition weighs less than the paperback edition?

It's not that Conan thing with the vultures that Garth Ennis ripped off years later in that 'Goodnight Kiss' Dredd story, is it?

News / Re: The Panel Is Political

I personally suspect some sort of genetic-level deference to inbred fops afflicts a large enough percentage of the British populace that the Clown At Midnight can leverage it into political respectability he's never earned nor deserved.

More likely it's just because they thought he was funny on Have I Got News For You. That seems to be how it works these days.
