Ah, but do you have to find a sand-pit and rip your shirt first?


Well, yes, that is a drawback. Still, it beats getting your hand chopped off and having the hots for your sister (especially as my sister is actually a brother).

Has to be Trek for me. Star Wars lost it with those bloody ewoks. It's also disappointing to a 14 year old kid when you can't raise your dad's Ford Granada out of a puddle using the power of the Force no matter how long you concentrate on it with your hand outstretched. I could never be a Jedi, but, just like Captain Kirk, I knew precisely how to punch somebody in the face until they surrendered. And C3PO just gets on my tits.

Also this:

'I've done far worse thsn kill you. I've hurt you. And I wish to go on... hurting you. I shall leave you as you left me. As you left her. Marooned for all eternity, in the center of a dead planet. Buried alive... buried alive...'


Cue goosebumps and the end of the argument. "I am your father!" Oh, puh-lease.

Yeah. I used to drive coaches for a living. I had upwards of forty people's lives in my hands for hours on end while they all chattered and guffawed and stuffed themselves with crisps the whole time. Traffic jam? My fault. Coach breaks down? My fault. They treat you as if you just grow out of the driver's seat.

There is nothing more ignorant than the general public. (And how's that for a stereotype?)

It is easier (or more convenient) to hate a stereotype than understand a person. The ruling elite know this and so foster the compartmentalisation of people into groups like firemen and bankers, doctors and hoodies, asylum seekers and migrant workers by way of the mainstream media. Divide and conquer - oldest trick in the book. (and anybody who thinks that the media is never manipulated for political or financial purposes should take a look at this: http://http://www.thenewspaper.com/news/15/1570.asp )

God forbid any of us learning that hoodies are people just like everyone else. If we all start to look at each other as human beings and not stereotypes, we might start to ask questions about why our society is so fractured in the first place - and that would never do, would it?

Governments only have power (the power to issue ID cards, install video cameras all over the country, the power to change the law so that police can arrest Anybody for Any Thing including littering, the power to send troops into illegal wars etc, etc, etc) because we give it to them. That power belongs to us and they're abusing it, but we're allowing them to abuse it. Why are we allowing it? Because we're all too busy being distracted by hoodies, bankers and terrorists to notice. We're at each other's throats. Big Brother doesn't need to watch us any more, he's got us watching each other.

Call me a conspiracy theorist if you want, but don't blame me when the One World Bank comes along, then the One World Currency, the One World Government, One World Army, One World Religion and a jackboot at the throat of your children.

We are all just people; good, bad or indifferent, so hating a stereotype is not only mindless but also very dangerous.

#1: Gibson Quarter, because I'm just an old Benny (Hill) at heart.

#2: Pete Wells - it seems like a perfectly reasonable explanation to me. *Ahem.*

#3: Johnnystress - because I've been that Hammerstein, and I too have worn that expression.

HM: Bolt 01 (See #1...)

Well done everyone else, another board full of excellence this month and thanks as always to Jim for his tireless efforts.

Film & TV / Minder Remake
« on: 10 February, 2009, 11:18:19 AM »
Channel Five have remade Minder.

I doubt that there's ever been a more inauspicious sentence than that in the history of television. Channel Five, that shadowy purveyor of CSI Omnipresent, gangsters relieving each other of their kneecaps, fuzzy reception and documentaries about people with horrendous things wrong with them has had a stab at reinventing one of the best loved comedy-drama programmes ever to be seen in the UK. I just knew it was going to be beyond rubbish. It was going to be toxic, unrecyclable rubbish that would poison the airwaves for centuries and quite possibly cause aliens watching on Zeta Reticuli to finally unleash their death rays and mutant zombie cyborg stormtroopers on us once and for all in the interests of galactic sanity. Removing any heavy objects from within easy reach in case I got so miffed as to throw things at my beloved telly, I tuned in and watched it expecting to be in a state of apoplexy from roll to cut.

Imagine my surprise when I actually enjoyed it. Imagine my confusion when I found myself laughing out loud at the"...might as well be haunted" line, Archie pretending to be a ghost and the microwaving of two unfortunate cockroaches.

It was never going to be as good as the original, but it's not a hundred miles away and I for one am looking forward to the next episode. I can't be alone in this... can I? I can't remember being so pleasantly surprised by anything for a long time and it's taught me to be less judgemental and condescending about certain sentences that would otherwise chill me to the bone. In honour of this lesson, I have decided to make the following my sentence of the month:

Channel Five have remade Minder.
