Cheers, Frank.  I remember thinking Dan Abnett was John Wagner for a short while - pre SinDex obviously but I can't remember what he wrote. I also thought Kek-W was Mark Millar.

I'm lost. There's one boarder who I know is called Ken but I think I'm missing something.  I love Thistlebone though; very much a Kill List vibe.

Over here in Belgium they won't accept blood from anyone who lived in England between 1980 and 1996 because of  Variant Creutzfeld-Jacob Disease. I moved over here in 2002 so I am definitely out.  Which is a bit disappointing.

Ha, no, but that is excellent and now I need to see that. There is no movie ever made that would not be improved at least 50% by the inclusion of a giant spider.

I knew Citizen Kane was lacking something.

Yet somehow, it didn't help EIGHT LEGGED FREAKS.

On the other hand,  it's hard to imagine Eight Legged Freaks without spiders.

I finally saw Captain Marvel. That's about all I can say for it.

That's pretty much my thoughts on Justice League,  which I watched last night.   Wonder woman  was great, and Batman was far better than previous Affleck Batman (touch of the Lego Batman about him, in a good way) but it was a mess. The bad guy was rubbish, and a waste of Ciaran Hinds' talents.

 DC Black Label.  Sounds like something a pissed-up, shouting 'outdoorsman' would drink.

Back in my day, you could actually get a glass of Guinness afterwards (perhaps to restore lost iron after donation but, not being an expert in such matters, I can't say for certain).

Needless to say, this was not the only reason that I chose to donate... ::)

Oh God, I really have to start donating again. I remember the bottle of Guinness; sadly missed.

But will they work on Nazis?


Or other statists?

Not a great demonstration of the rules you've just endorsed, Sharky. And I'm saying that as something of an anarchist myself.

Stoagie (an e-cigarette who is both as much of an arsehole as Hoagy, but manages to also be an offensive Mexican stereotype) to convince Sam he's gone insane.


I always saw Stogie as an affectionate swipe to (cigar-smoking) Carlos Ezquerra...




I think that's pretty well documented.  But also, he has a Spanish speaker's accent because he's a Cuban cigar.

Mental health has been very squiffy these last few weeks. A lot of late (early?) finishes at work throwing my sleep pattern out of the window, a few too many close calls and extensions to assignments at Uni having me believing i’m not good enough, sudden and inexplicable bouts of crying and anxiety, an unhealthy obsession with the fact i’m fast approaching another year of what feels like no progress, age, comparing myself to other people I barely know, and a profound sense of melancholy.

The worst of the black dogs hasn’t returned but it’s been on the mind, with nearly 2 years cut free i’m not eager to break a record.

Hang in there. It feels like it's going to last forever but it won't.

I'm also a demon for comparing myself to other people.  Have found CBT helpful (specifically David Burns' stuff which I mentioned before; it all looked a bit ridiculous when I looked at it first but it's really helped, way more than medication).

I don't think there's much of the bumbler about Johnson. He plays the part of hail-fellow-well-met with complete cynicism, somehow selling himself as a plain speaker puncturing pomposity while simultaneously speaking in meaningless riddles and being consumately pompous himself. He chooses to be shit at every brief, because he doesn't care, it suits him, and he knows it doesn't affect his support one bit.

Truth, loyalty and duty are meaningless sounds to be uttered at will but never embraced, and he is without a single constant principle other than the Divine Right of Boris. He's a walking parody of the ambitious politician.

That there was ever a possibility that this man could hold your highest political office is a stain on your democracy. That any sane person could see themself as represented by him, when all he could ever imagine doing for a constituent is exploiting them.

Where's Rik Mayall when you need him.  :'(

This is what I was trying to say, albeit less eloquently.  I remember hearing that he deliberately ruffles his hair before meeting the press. Wouldn't surprise me in the slightest; it's this cuddly scatterbrained image that has worked very well for him.

The fact that people are buying it amazes me.  What also baffles me is how the UK consistently chooses members of the upper classes to represent working people (and I speak as a half-Brit myself).  A no-deal Brexit will be water off a duck's back for a privileged twat like Mr 'Fuck Business' himself.

Wasn't expecting much from the Miley Cyrus one after seeing some sniffy reviews.  But I watched it and I liked it - I was wondering if Miley could act but then remembered that she started off her career as an actress.  Also nice to see the toxic Breakfast Club trope subverted - Maverick, interesting punk / goth type is 'fixed' and made into a nice, normal girl by all-American conforming heroes.
