Was about to say, watched a bunch of news reels from the day. Everyone was in shambles.

And don't forget that the BBC reported the controlled demolition collapse of WTC 7 about half an hour early.

Really dude? Really? This playground urban legend?

It's a truly baffling bit of deliberate misdirection by the beeb, as if they thought no one would notice.

The "PUT THE LOTION IN THE BASKET" sequence is a masterpiece in subtle acting methods, you can make out every twitch and split second change in attitude, from playful to livid to vindictive in seconds. Absolutely criminal he was never nominated for an award for Buffalo Bill.

Thoughts with ya and the Mrs, Colin, alas like yourself this year just isn't for me so at least we're sitting this one out together 'sobbing'.

Safe travels to all making this perilous journey and hope y'all have the best of cons, especially to those tabling, gonna miss propping up your tables and seeing your wares, see you at the next one.

Today marks the 30th anniversary of me finally losing my virginity, as Prog 650's John Higgins Dredd watched aghast from the bedside table of a grungy attic room in Bournemouth. While the occasion wasn't particularly earth-shattering for either participant, we did improve over time. The prog however has seldom been bettered.

Behind a Higgins stony grim hides trauma most foul.

They have a bad rep, but a billy bookcase will never let you down. I've been buying a bunch of stuff from their Fjallbo (never met 'er) range. Cheap and cheerful for a firs time home owner*.

*Well about 75% eventually....

One I haven't seen, I adore House of Usher and The Raven, Corman and Price made the definitive cinematic versions of Poe's (and a not half bad Lovecraft) works.

Half price in the Arrow sale, so basically BOGOF. The Sartana collection is luuuuush.

I've never read a King novel I liked, but I adore Kubriks The Shinning.

I'm not very popular in the film community for holding that opinion, Kings fans can get a little....eccentric.

Is that a paint-it-yourself dalek?

Nope! An ooooold pull back and noise Imperial Dalek I got at the (now closed?) Doctor Who shop in Liverpool docks. I remember it fondly.

Funny looking at how anemic my home video collection was back then, it's tripled in size since, as has the comics and books, yet still no proper display. 2020 will be the year that changes.

You missed a bot, walls of links and text to some malware ridden hellscape no doubt. Got deleted by the looks of it.

Cor, a Bot on a specialist forum in 2019.

How quaint, can we keep it?

HALLOWEEN 2(.3)018 is a great wee movie I really rate up in the chronology at the series, easily on par with Part 2 (but inferior to Season of the Witch, because what isn't). Surprisingly being freed of Loomis enabled this sequel to do something different, unrestrained by the duality of the good doctors antithesis to Michael, instead allowing JLC to really go full Rambo on Myers this time around.
