It's an international clownshow. Over here, despite decades of systematic child abuse, locking up women and burying babies in sewers, along with countless conspiracies to cover up said atrocities, the Pope's lot still own the best schools, to the point where it's difficult to find a secular school while ensuring a good future for your children.  Fortunately, the Christian Brothers here, pointless at best and dangerously psychopathic at worst, who used to teach these schools are on the verge of dying out.

Upsetting idea you may not want to read: Do we know if the babies in the sewer were dead when they were thrown in there?

The Church are down but they're not out : https://www.irishtimes.com/news/education/new-catholic-primary-school-sex-education-programme-published-1.4547221

"The programme for senior classes states that “puberty is a gift from God. We are perfectly designed by God to procreate with him”; while a lesson on safety and protection advises senior infant children to say the “Angel of God” prayer."

The Wicker Man, for the millionth time.  On May Day this time though, in my neighbour's big and wild garden beside the canal, with a bonfire and beers.  It's not the best film ever made, nor by any means the best film I've ever seen, but it's still my favourite.

It's Nicolas Cage shouting about bees that makes it, of course.

Sounds like a wonderful evening to me!

Over the weekend I've watched:

Something Life (AntiLife?) - New Bruce Willis on Netflix. If only it had embraced it's B movie potential but instead tries to fool us into thinking it's something it's not. Makes not a lick of sense and the acting is so bland it will have you actually rooting against the main cast.

Love and Monsters - Not a dreadful premise and well executed. Not a great movie overall but I wasn't actively offended by it.

Hangover Edition: The Switch - To say this movie is problematic is an understatement but only in the early 2000's could a man trick the woman he loves into having his baby and it all ends happily ever after. What a bizarre idea for a romantic comedy. I'm not sure if this is worse than the one where Kevin Costner beds three generations of women from the same family.

This is where I leave you: The patriarch of the family dies and his dysfunctional family sit shiva to honour his last request. This wasn't dreadful and was touching and funny in equal measure. 

Dinner with Friends: Inoffensive comedy about nothing really.

The Night Clerk:  Not a bad movie but all I could think was 'What has Helen Hunt done to her face?'

Watched Mank on Netflix last night and loved it. The story and cinematography were a delight and Gary Oldman was fantastic. Well worth a watch.

Well at least the book series is actually finished so they have that to pull from, and the middle slog from the series (book 6 and 7) can be condensed down quite easily considering those two books only seem to cover about 4 weeks book time,  I’m very hopeful for the show.  Can’t wait for the first preview the teasers released so far have been good (they just released a Lan for teaser a couple of days ago and hope really a true teaser (5 seconds long!!) it’s looking good).  I really hope the show does well, I’m rereading the books in perpetration

I hadn't realised there were more trailers out there. It's been a while since I've read the books and have no intention to re-read at this point so I don't recall the exact events of each book. I'm really looking forward to seeing the Aiel (but I guess that will be S3 with just one guy in S1 or S2) and Trollocs , the braid tugging and just everything really. Thought Brandon Sanderson did a noble job of finishing the series book wise.

On a similar note I am eagerly awaiting Wheel of Time from Amazon as it is one of my favourite Fantasy series that definitely needs a bit of money thrown at it to make a good adaptation and certainly needs to be a series as there is no way it would be possible as movies (unless they wanted to make a 7 or 8 movie octology?)

Hopefully this will be the new Game of Thrones but actually stay decent for the duration. Pretty excited about this as well.

Subscription copies of 93/94 just rocked up here.

I got 93 & 94 today (yay!) but I didn't get 91 & 92 (boo!). I can't cope with this.

That self confessed not-an-actual-journalist Ticker Carlson has been saying no one will want to be a cop now. If not being allowed to get off of murder after kneeling on a restrained man's neck for ten minutes puts you off being a cop...good.

I know we don't like to use the word around here but this racist, hypocritical, misogynistic, rabble rousing piece of $hit is the definition of the word c**t.

Really enjoyed the Last Week Tonight on him: https://youtu.be/XMGxxRRtmHc

There was also a Batman : The Musical idea being floated (some demos here):

As this image shows, the answer is "rarely"  :lol:

Well you gotta dust it now and post an after pic!

Also round of applause for Trooper's latest creation!

I've broken the Judge Death's hand, Nemesis frill and Dredd's (MK-1) Lawgiver while cleaning / posing so I tend to leave them alone.

That brush is £13.50 from M&S but you can get a cheaper one in Primark that will do the job.

Re: your idea for Death suction trap have you considered working with epoxy?

Just an idea - I have absolutely no clue on how you might attempt that.

Btw, I can't believe that sculpture is $800.00.

I love him - every time I pick him up (which isn't that often because I'm afraid I'll break him) I think  'Please, my son ... he's very evil'.

I actually must invest in a brush for dusting - I was going to get a kabuki brush because they are super soft:

How do you dust your figures?

I'm sorry to disappoint you gentlemen, but I have hammer hands that break everything they touch so, I was in no way involved in the creation of this magnificent piece.
