The smothering pretentiousness of TV shows that somehow think they are the highest form of dramatic gravitas. It goes something like this:


Woman: Would you like a glass of water?

Man: When I was nine years old, there was grey spider crawling on the fireplace mantle. My father told me to kill it.

Woman: Uhhh....

Man: It moved along so gracefully, each leg moving in concert as though at the behest of an unseen puppeteer. "Squash it!" my father yelled. I looked around, and all I saw was the brand new pair of basketball sneakers I had saved for half a year to buy.

Woman: Yyyeah, about that water....

Man: I saved that money by getting up every morning at five-o'clock to deliver buttermilk throughout the neighborhood.

Woman: Oh. Uh, buttermilk....

Man: I remember old Mr. Svenson, the one-legged man, would be sitting on his porch every morning waiting for my delivery. He... he always smelled like asparagus. And then... one morning he wasn't there. Just wasn't there.

Woman: Ooookay, I'm just going to go into the kitchen to....

Man: He had gone to Laredo to visit his granddaughter, who had come down with a rare form of conjunctivitis. I later found out that she had been sent to a special hospital in Phoenix, where she died after eating a bowl of spoiled peaches. Imagine that... peaches.

Woman: So... I'm going to....

Man: "Kill it," he said. So I picked up that basketball sneaker, and I squashed that little spider. That little spider who never hurt anyone. Then I went and threw my sneakers in the trash.

Woman: Really. It's just a glass of water.

Man: I swore right then and there that I would never eat asparagus again. And for that nine-year-old boy... well, the world changed for him that day.

Seriously. It's not The Sound and the Fury. It's not Sophie's Choice. It's a frikken' TV show about the zombie apocalypse. Jesus.

I see what you mean... that is a shockingly awful script. shocked

Yeah, no. That's not an actual script... just my interpretation of it.

It's not awful. It's brilliant. Dust gave everything. wink

A guy holds a monologue when he is supposed to have a dialogue. He leaves just pauses all the while that are just long enough for the other person to say "And what happened then?" to increase the wannabe-dramatic effect of his speech. He doesn't notice he's been asked something completely different and how he is ignorant to a simple question. His whole monologue puts a question mark in the room what the hell this whiny story has to do with him being offered a glass of water and he never even gets to answer that part. His story includes every fake-drama stereotype possible: a traumatic campfire/little boy story, a death of an innocent little animal, sports shoes, a smelly old man, someone dying of conjunctivitis... Plus there's a flood of stylistic devices that make an awkward story even more over the top awkward: a flashback within a flashback, the repetition of the line "some day he just wasn't there", an anticlimactic story-line (Oh, the old man died? Err, no. He went to visit someone. Because someone else is about to die.), reference to death more than one time, metaphors in the wrong place (that description of the spider...)... And on top of it all a most confused explanation why the boy stopped eating asparagus. And the woman is forced into the role of the dumb fool.

There you go. Sheer brilliance. grin You know, Dust, you should become a soap opera writer for real. Those TV producers wouldn't even notice you're making fun of them. wink grin

From 5th October shops in Britain are going to charge 5p per bag for “single use” plastic carrier bags. The idea being to cut down on litter and encourage the use of sturdier “bags for life”.

But we actually use these “single use” bags as bin bags once we’ve finished using them to carry things in (our kitchen bin is designed to specifically take them).

So from now on, instead putting our rubbish in a bag that has already been used several times for something else, we are going to have to buy bags specifically to use just once as bin bags.

How is that more ecological?


I'm annoyed because with my home delivery I'm expected to pay 40p ( no matter how many bags they send ) , or opt for no bags, which means I end up with all my groceries all over the floor! rolleyes

It happens on a lot of shows, but I specifically noticed it from the older Latino man in Fear the Walking Dead. He doesn't speak responsively to anyone. When he's asked a question his eyes go all misty, he stares into the distance, and he launches into a monologue about his younger days... when life was cheap and the world was cruel.

What popped into my head while thinking about it though was an early scene from Raising Arizona:

"And when there was no fowl, we ate crawdad. And when there was no crawdad, we ate sand."
"You ate what?"
"We ate sand."
"You ate sand??"

I guess they are trying to get away from the fact that it's just a show about zombies. Lol
Funny thing about that "Lattino" man in the show is actually a New Zealander..

Supposedly the vast majority of films from the silent film era are already lost due to numerous reasons. I just read an interview with some expert who says only 15% of the films produced in that era are delivered to us sad

I can now officially join the club of victims of old CDs that are not playable any more. tongue Tried to listen to my copy of JBO's "Explizite Lyrik" this morning, the first couple tracks played all right, then the CD kept jumping more and more, the last tracks were reduced to some heavily distorted scratching noises (if you ever tried to scratch a CD... have fun, it's a one-time experience). It's not even 20 years ago I bought this album rolleyes

If you haven't already tossed it away or broken it in half, try reburning it on a blank disc.

I've had at least half-a-dozen CDs that stopped working in the car or on my home stereo.
But my laptop would still be able to read the disc and I could extract the music and burn it on a CD.

The odd time it didn't work for me was when I've purchased a new CD and it arrived already damaged with a deep nick or scratch on the playing side.

Give it go.
Hope it works for you.

Damn, is that a thing? Do CDs stop playing after a certain amount of time? None of mine have.
