Off Topic / Re: Pills, Patches, and Hypnosis.....
« on: 31 March, 2005, 05:37:44 PM »
I tried and partially succeeded (ie ultimately failed) with patches.  I did cut down to one a day:  sometimes none a day...but ultimately, I think the only solution is none a day, starting from a specific point in time.

You must (as has been said) throw away all your lighters, ashtrays and other smoking paraphernalia.  I found myself going back to the bin for my "last one" several times, so eventually I had to pour water into the tobacco to stop myself doing that.

I found patches very helpful:  and without them (even if the effect was only a placebo) I found it 10 times more difficult to ignore the cravings...which do only last a minute or so at a time.

When I went back to smoking, they tasted horrible and made me fill ill:  but I persevered - I found taking up smoking was quite difficult after 3 months of 1 or less a day.

I don't know about over-rated:  but I do think he was over-hyped.

This seems common these days:  something new comes on the scene and it's like "You will love this NOW consumer!"

It's refreshing when something just gets quietly noticed because of it's inherent quality.

If that's true it's the worst piece of casting I can think of in recent memory.

I think Mr. Pegg's brilliant in the roles he's played:  but they've hardly been diverse, have they?

He plays a happy go lucky everyman.  Everytime.  He always has his blonde locks and his cheeky grin.  Nothing I've ever seen him do remotely resembles "gritty", so I just can't see it working.

In fact, I don't believe it's true.

It looks really groovy (in my humble onion)...funkotronic, even.

Looking at the source code, the JavaScript for the buttons seems overly complex (and produces that odd effect whereby whole chunks of the menu disappear of you click on them) and so you may find this useful as an alternative method: button.html.

Website and Forum / Re: New Poll: A gun's held to your...

Looks like I'm out on a limb with Caballistics:  but honestly...lots of demons doing the Can-Can...c'mon, people!

Zenith I figure you could hide a lot of the musical element away behind the fact that Acid Archie, Zenith and Voltage were all pop stars anyway, and Masterman could come on and sing "Springtime for Hitler".  Plus you had all those goody two-shoes heroes from other dimensions that were down on their luck:  I can see them all covered in soot singing some luverly east end "ooh it's tough being a londoner when Mr Why? just zapped me girl" etc.

I also went with The Simping Detective...which I don't need to explain, do I?

Of course, they already did a Robo-Hunter musical, which I hated with a passion...so really, you would have to put a gun to my head...but that wasn't a request...back off okay!

Well, so far (if you collate the results, and I did because it was more interesting than tonight's tele), the lowest common denominator "perfect prog" would be the following:

Judge Dredd (Wagner & any one of a number of well-established artistic gods)
Caballistics Inc. (Rennie & Reardon)
Halo Jones Book 4 (Gibson [b&w] & Moore)
Nikolai Dante (Morrison & Fraser)
Strontium Dog (Wagner & Ezquerra)

Only one person mentioned the cover, and they opted for Bolland, which seems fair.

(Just losing out on an equal footing were Slaine, Rogue Trooper & ABC Warriors).

PS  Sorry Trout...I'm a paranoid git sometimes...must practise my new mantra "think before you post...think before you post..."

It's a weird thing, though:  if I see someone describing one of my favourite creators in a negative light, I too get incensed.  (See previous posts on the Mills / Slaine debate.)

In fact, when I first read your [paraphrasing] "Grant's past-it" comment I could feel my blood beginning to boil, but then you said Gibson's recent work was a bit below par and I started to calm down because I totally agree with that:  no explanation required.  (It's like he's gone colour blind, or fallen in love with mauve, or decided that backgrounds are things that only happen to other people.)

Count to 10, I guess:  it's different strokes for different folks.  Now, if only I could take my own advice...

In an attempt to get away from creator-debates, my initial idea for the thread (which you are free to ignore at your leisure, obviously) was a fantasy line up of stories:  not writers and artists.

Still, carry on, don't mind me...
