Shatner's gloriously pretentious explanation of the symbolism of the mountain-climbing scene is toe curling - save yourself the time and stick with the musical remix

The mods have been very efficient in their removals, which means I haven't seen most of this spam, but before it disappears, I had to share this beautiful, poetic explanation of why Russian women make the best wedlock components.

Dandontdare's Bolland Dredd t-shirt went over his head, but not much further.

Oi!

A little more on Dido and the track and trace fiasco from Private Eye. She should never have given up the pop career.

Pat Abnett ... no, Dan Mills.

This is so hard, if we included editorial and overall contribution, Pat would walk it, but we're only judging their output as a writer. It's very much a game of two halves - does Abnett's prolific and powerful body of work in the last 20 years eclipse monumental stories like Nemesis, ABC Warriors or the Cursed Earth from the first 20? Can Pat still be regarded as the best given that so much of his later output can sometimes be slow, preachy and formulaic?

In the end, I had to go by personal impact - now I know that the thrill-receptors of  a 10-25 year old are more finely attuned than those of an older, more cynical reader, but as much as I admire Abnett's great scripts that have kept 2000ad on top of it's game well into the 21st century, absolutely nothing can compare to the sheer giddy, mind-expanding thrillpower that those early strips delivered, soo....

PAT MILLS (sorry Dan)

You have to question the fairness of a justice system based on number puns. "Judge: Your name's Swede?  Damn, I wanted to give you longer for all those rapes and murders but 'Swede Sixteen' cracks me up - Sixteen years!"

There is a limit to how many times I can rewatch Marvel movies, Dr Who and Rick & Morty during lockdown, so I've been trying to expand my horizons a bit.

John Wick I'm usually not much of a fan of bloodthirsty revenge dramas but I couldn't ignore all the good stuff I've heard about this and it was free on Amazon Prime. I loved it! The film lives or dies by Keanu, and for me that guy can't put a foot wrong. Part 3 is free on Amazon but I may shell out £3.49 to rent part 2 first.

Booksmart Charming and funny coming of age drama with Beanie Feldstein and Kaitlyn Dever. If you can squint a bit and pretend everyone is actually 18, this film has a lot of heart and some funny moments.

Downsizing Great concept but disappointing. My attention kept wandering to the ramifications of this tech, and I came up with about a dozen stories more interesting than what was happening on screen. The supporting cast was good, but I find Matt Damon a charisma-free black hole of dullness. The two rich characters were unconvincing too - I think they were supposed to be eccentric and quirky, but they came across as assholes for the first half of the film and then somehow morphed into genial grandpas.

Nice Guys Unlike Keanu, Russell Crowe is someone I don't particularly want to like, as I think he's a dick, but he's great in this. Could've done with less of the precocious kid, but good fun

I got mine today - only had a flick through so far, but oh my word there's some great looking stuff in here - Dredd, Revolver, The Notorious GFD and even the 121/2p Buytonic Boy! Can't wait to dive in.

I decided to share my 2000ad tat on imgur https://imgur.com/gallery/eAVDLzO

I used to scoff at people who were hungry for internet likes, but after 50 views it had two upvotes and two downvotes. Who bothers to downvote something like that?* Visit and give me likes! Validate me! *sob*

and no rude comments - I'm looking at you, Wells.

EDIT - shit, it's at -1 now.

possibly a Trump voter who's screened my comments history

I think I may have just literally pissed myself. Oh dear. And one day before my 50th too. That's not good.

Someone needs to make some of that.

Quick, reach for a slug  :lol:

The last three comments on the thread below certainly gave me a much-needed laugh.

 :) Reminds me of the web site that had to rethink their URL when they first set up www.expertsexchange.com.  (It's since been altered to avoid confusion.)

there was also one for locating psychotherapists in your area called findtherapist.com

I find it difficult to express how I feel about current affairs, but Public Enemy have done it for me: PUBLIC ENEMY - State Of The Union (STFU) featuring DJ PREMIER

Excellent.

I also like that it has the line "Mister I-am-the-law, and you are NOT"
