What puts a smile on your face?
Post by LittleJohn on May 18th, 2011, 07:50am

OK ...Yes I stole the idea from " What gets on yer tits" but how about some nice positive things for a change..

So I will start off with checking out Air Canada flights to England..

Hi there, John!

I started a similarly positive thread several months ago, and after a few days it was abandoned and sank from the first page. I think most people would rather complain. undecided

Good luck with this one though! I'll help....

My dog Chloe always puts a smile on my face. Rain or shine, good day or bad, she's always happy to see me. smiley

I don't think I've smiled much today, not good. One thing that did make me laugh is I tried a new bubble tea place in Chinatown that you can order right from the street, I asked if they have any fruit shakes as we needed some energy (was on long power walk with a gf) so we order a mango/Strawberry and it looked like there were blueberries in there, turns out they were big globs of slimy tapioca, you should have seen my friends face when she first tasted one! Now that was funny! grin

I am mainly a happy person, so lots of things put a smile on my face, but apart from the obvious like naked ladies, motorcycles, naked ladies with motorcycles, great music and having fun with friends, I love those little snippets on TV advertising C Beebies, the BBC childrens' channel.

And I'm not a particularly paternal person...

Well of course spending time with loved ones, especially my kids (even though they are all grown up now).

Speed - driving or riding fast, actually probably get more of a rush riding a bike fast...

Playing my guitar especially if it's somewhere I can crank the Marshall up good n' loud... there's something about playing loud a whole different dynamic, the guitar really comes alive.

Pies - You can't beat a nice pie, and as John Cooper Clarke said "you'll always get a guy with a pie"!

I usually mow the lawn from side to side, but today I did it from front to back to have a better view of the two scantily-clad young women washing their car across the street.

Was that wrong?



P.S. No, I didn't have a smile on my face. That would have just been creepy.

You should mow your lawn in as many different directions as possible. It's known in the trade as 'ringing the changes'...

Feet don't put a smile on my face generally speaking, but I must admit the last colour Pink I had put on my toes I'm getting lots of compliments on, it's the same colour that all the rich Russian Ladies in Miami wore so it's actually surprising it suits me, but whatever the case, compliments put a smile on my face!

I just don't like looking at feet but I love getting mine rubbed, I get a pedicure every few weeks, it feels good!

When car repairs go according to plan, don't require additional parts or tools, and take about as long as you planned. I just replaced my coolant reservoir, avoiding a overheating mess on the highway sometime soon, and it went swimmingly.

Mostly Autumn's acoustic set on the Bob Harris show last weekend.

Bill Bailey, Russell Howard (the 'Rodney Stanger' news footage always makes me laugh, where the picture of the hamster comes up), decent rock and pop documentaries.

Stuart Maconie's Freak Zone on Sunday afternoons (a latterday equivalent to the Anne Nightingale programme).

I love the clip of Christopher Eccleston, Tom Baker and David Tennant in the car, by the way!

Somebody I know and like but who is very chaotic with money and a tad bossy sometimes, tells me unsolicited this morning that I should be watching my money and getting used to going out with $20 in my pocket and no credit card, so I tell her that maybe she has a point, and that I should stop giving away money to people who don't have it.

Her expression was priceless but I couldn't show I noticed! grin

At the moment I'm kind of depressed.

I'm trying to play the Firth of Fifth piano solo, not the chords, just the notes, and I'm really struggling. I can play the first ten or so notes and then it gets so unfathomably tough that I'm just left guessing at what to do. So, I gave up on it out of annoyance.

This is exactly how I felt when I tried to do the Cinema Show solo last year. I can do the slow part fine, but starting from the complex part where he goes from end of the keyboard to the other, I can't even focus on one note he plays, so I gave up on that too. This is so unfair. I would love to be able to play a solo, but it's almost impossible.

It's just totally killing me with intense sadness that I'm a great keyboardist but I can't play a simple Banks solo. I mean, if he can do it with such ease, why can't I? There are hundreds of YouTubers that can play FOF too and when people ask them how they do it they always say it's simple.

If I can't play at least one Banks solo in full, I'm nothing, I can't call myself a good keyboardist when he has set the bar so high. I'm sick of making my own solos, I've made about twenty solos and they're lame and easy to play, Banks would chuckle if I showed them to him. I don't want to give up the keyboards but knowing that I'm so far below his level is extremely disheartening, I can't even watch him play anymore, it makes me jealous embarassed

Also, it is EXTREMELY hot tonight in Bournemouth, roughly 35 celcius. I'm at the computer in my undies, this is one of the stickiest, most sweltering nights I've ever experienced in England, and I just feel really "under the weather". Perhaps tomorrow it will be nice and mild, then I'll feel more competent.

I suppose it is. But this heat is driving me nuts. I'm going to have another go at Firth of Fifth in the morning because there's no way I'll be able to get it right at the moment. But it really feels disappointing to struggle with it. I need to be more dedicated tongue

Oh yeah, the thread name *feels embarassed*

OK, what put a smile on my face today was knowing that Cars 2 got bad reviews on Rotten Tomatoes. I'm glad it did! I knew it was going to be Pixar's worst film!

I'm not saying I'm happy that they've made their first failure because I am a huge Pixar fan (so is my Dad - his favourite film is Toy Story 2, and mine is The Incredibles), I'm just happy it got bad reviews because the first Cars film was below Pixar standards and I was pretty p**sed when I found out they were making a pointless sequel to it. Knowing that it is as bad as I expected makes me no longer feel concerned for Pixar's future. If it had done well, there would probably be a Cars 3, but poor reviews proves that the Cars franchise doesn't belong in Pixar's history.

What puts a smile on my face today? Yesterday we had a big clearout of old games and books and it's good to know they're going off to charity.

Oh, and another thing: I recently bought three great things from the iTunes store: The Final Frontier by Iron Maiden, said to be their latest masterpiece, the Concert for George Harrison CD by Eric Clapton and the best of Uriah Heep (a band I am just getting into).

I still have about six quid left over in iTunes money too smiley

This comment puzzles me, please explain. You know I always welcome your presence at movies with me so you can't be sad I went without you, but maybe that's not what you mean, maybe you don't believe a Woody Allen movie would be good, no, that can't be right, you like Annie Hall......did we discuss this last week and I forgot... (can you believe it's been a week since we were at Gabe in Philly?)

Anyway, I did think of you, lots of Jazz Festival Stuff going on my walk to and from the Movie Theatre, but man downtown was a bit TOO insane for me yesterday, I ran home and watched the (lame) Ontario place fireworks from the balcony. I think it made me a bit hyper........User Image

Sorry, my comment was meant to be very tongue-in-cheek, and I just assumed you would catch that, considering that I was the one who told you about this film and about how much I want to see it. So, yes, I am disappointed, that you went to see it before me, on one hand, and that I could have seen it with you on the other. sad

Glad I'm not going anywhere near downtown tonight. But it will be a bit less convenient catching a bite to eat before the show.

Well that's nice, let me know how you like it when you go.

Actually you may understand some of the parallels I saw in my life from some of those boring stories about pretentiousness you have had to sit through when I have held you hostage with them on our road trips. grin

Sorry Lily, but this is something we'll have to disagree on. As a republican, I resent how much we as taxpayers have to spend to support the Royal Family. They are, IMHO, parasites and so this picture makes me smile as I agree with the protestors.

Oh ok, I really don't care about all that Monarchy stuff and don't pay attention, sorry. I didn't even know they were here that's how long its been since I picked up a newspaper and had my TV on. Makes me realize how out of touch I am, but the world is so mad!!! Best anti-monachrchy thing for me was in 1977 when I still lived in the UK, I saw a Punk Rocker walking up high Street in Sheffield wearing a leather jacket with 'F*** THE JUBILEE' written in big letters with white paint on the back, now THAT put a smile on my face.

I'm going out to the west end to pick up a 'DiveMaster Crew Pack' for my friend so I can take it to the Caribbean for him on Saturday, knowing the guy because he was a boyfriend I had in my past, all I can say is that the name of the product he wants me to bring for him is ironic. grin

Susan, thanks for the Anderson Cooper link! When Metro reported the same story I was wondering if Depardieu had Cat Stevens' 'Can't Keep It In' as a ringtone, or The Action's 'I'll Keep On Holding On'!

I have a mental picture of the stewards and stewardesses covering the floor in various broadsheet newspapers the way one poor bus driver had to use unsold Metros when one passenger wet themselves on the journey! I hope Russell Howard uses this on the next Good News series.

Oh this was nothing like anywhere in the UK Choccy, I love the way different oceans have different feels. I love the ocean, period.

Turns out where I was wasn't actually the Caribbean, it was the North Atlantic, it was a bit greeny because of the Hurricane churning things up, but the colour of the water was definitely Caribbean-ish.

Ahhhh, am ok for now but will be craving the Ocean before too long...


Apart from Turks and Caicos this Bahamas water is one of the most Turquoise waters I have ever seen. Would like to go back there one day too.

The Genesis tribute I'm going to see tonight definitely puts a smile on my face. I have never been so excited in my life cool

I just wish I knew the setlist. This would be a good setlist in my opinion (based on the songs they know according to their website)

Dance on a Volcano
The Knife
The Musical Box
...In That Quiet Earth/Afterglow
Home by the Sea/Second Home by the Sea
Squonk
In the Cage
Firth of Fifth

INTERVAL

I Know What I Like (medley with Stagnation)
The Lady Lies
One for the Vine
Supper's Ready
The Cinema Show
Turn it On Again
The Carpet Crawlers
Los Endos

Plus also possibly a couple of surprise tracks thrown in somewhere.

But I'm going to have to wait. The good thing though is regardless of what the pick, it's going to be brilliant. It's apparently four hours long shocked

Must admit, there's a lot of these modern comics that don't appeal to me. They seem to pop up on loads of shows, but they're rather predictable. Brigstocke and Dennis I'd include in that, along with other 'stalwarts' such as Phill Jupitus, Ross Noble (I think that's his name!) and others. Nothing against them, they just don't make me laugh.
Gervais is the worst of the lot. Never yet seen or heard him do anything that threatened to make me laugh. Jimmy Carr is another.
Each to their own though, and I know there are plenty of people out there who like them, so fair enough. undecided

Without fail, my Mum watches "Jezza" every day. I know, it's a nightmare to have to listen to it. And his attitude towards the young child he was giving X-mas presents to was apalling. My Mum and I were very shocked.

What was good was that he gave this child with some kind of brain disease a large amount of nice presents, one of which was a Thomas the Tank Engine play set. But... the kid also recieved a signed Newcastle football shirt containing all the players names (because he comes from Newcastle) and when Jeremy Kyle presented him with the shirt, he didn't show gratefulness for it (because he's only three), and Jeremy Kyle actually snapped at him: "Oh, you don't want it? Fine then, I guess you just want to play with your toys. Whatever..." A very rude statement to make to a three year old child.

A THREE year old child. Does this kid really care about football? No, he's THREE! He wanted to play with his new toys, and Jeremy actually scolded him for doing so and not paying any attention to the shirt. A signed shirt wouldn't be very interesting or exciting to such a young boy, so I wouldn't be surprised. Jeremy Kyle is just obnoxious and clearly doesn't know anything about children.

Reading Stephen Lambe's 'Citizens Of Hope & Glory' book and remembering a lot of the music mentioned.

Watching the 'Mongrels' DVD. In fact, watching any decent stuff on TV or DVD that isn't another Agatha Christie/Charles Dickens/Jane Austen adaptation. Charlie Brooker's round-up of 2011 was good but Adam Curtis's piece about Rupert Murdoch made me feel depressed.

The 'Little Crackers' episodes for 2011; Shappi Khorsandi's episode about her crush on Tucker from 'Grange Hill' was good.
Also Jane Horrocks's episode about wanting to have a perm like Barbra Streisand's (in 'A Star Is Born') was funny.

You know how I said one of my new years resolutions was to get homework done and out of the way before relaxing?

Well, I said it was bound to get broken. And it has and hasn't. At the start of the new year I initially broke the resolution by continuing to procrastinate, until this week, where I've decided to toughen up and knuckle down, therefore "repairing" the broken resolution. I've written myself a timetable starting tomorrow morning which I want to stick to as well as possible.

Having a proper timetable to do work feels satisfying. I'm learning to plan time effectively. I've also given my university room a good clean. For the first time in my life, I actually feel organised. I'm usually useless, but I feel so positive all of a sudden. cool

Actually I just remembered another part of my dream, or a different dream which happened later in my sleep. This was the part that woke me up. grin

Basically, at the end of my dream, I realised, "Hang on? Why am I in my house? I should be at university! I'm missing lectures!". And so I walked into the living room to find my Mum there and I told her "I'm losing track of things, I should be at uni. I don't remember taking the train home."

Then, I panicked. "My things! Where are my things? I must have left them on the train." and after that, I woke up. I realised of course, it was a dream. My computer wouldn't randomly show me all the desktop backgrounds I'd ever used, among other stuff. Dreams are so much fun. grin

Actually I hope he wins! it'd be good because:

1/ No-one will expect him to.

2/ It'll reinforce my long offered argument that Britain should stop entering unknowns, given our vast wealth of musical talent.

Now this might be a bit off-topic, but to me a bath is something you have at the end of the day, to get you all nice and relaxed ready for bed.

At any other time of the day if I need to freshen up, it's a shower.

I just can't envisage having a bath at any other time than in the late evening!

My husband, on the other hand, seems to be able to wallow in a bath at any time of day. But then, I've never seen him use scented candles like I have round my bath.....

Accidentally discovering that Cock Robin have signed to a new label, (Blackbird, Germany) in place of the useless 31 Production Edition of France, so now the last 2 albums (Live, and Songs From A Bell Tower) can be bought on CD outside France, thus I don't have to put up with crappy, gappy mp3 versions. Have to buy as an import mind, but at least I can!

Goodbye 31 PE, Rot in Peace.

(Opens a new thought though, previously on replacing a format with a new one, you could sell the old one. Downloads, however................. angry)

I was walking down a road in the neighbourhood when I saw a note that somebody had pinned to their fence. In this case it wasn't about a lost cat or dog, rather a lost tortoise. Now that in itself isn't amusing and I hope the tortoise is found safe and well. But rather than describing the tortoise as "young", it was described as "juvenile"! shocked Now when talking about human beings, whilst juvenile means young - typically under 18 - it only tends to be used in a criminal context in the UK. So there was me with visions of this poor tortoise having committed some heinous crime! grin Of course for all I know, "juvenile" might be a regular word within the tortoise community. wink

One word: REFUND!

Purchased a "box set" on Amazon about a month and a half ago. Was sent just the CDs in broken cases without the box. huh angry

Contacted the seller who offered a discount or a full refund. I chose the refund and mailed the discs back. When no refund appeared on my recent credit card statement I contacted the seller again to find out what was going on. He said he can't give me the full refund because I kept the CDs for a month. BS, because I had sent them back after a week or so. When I received no further communication from the seller I contacted Amazon directly and complained.

Just got a notice that they will be giving me the full refund including postage. Woo! cool

I adore all three Toy Story films and the first two Shreks (the 3rd and 4th Shrek films are mediocre in comparison to the first two) - but to me, Toy Story 2 will always be the most accomplished and flawless piece of animated entertainment ever created.

Toy Story 2, to me is absolutely overflowing with charm and fun. Not only does it improve significantly upon the first Toy Story (which is still pretty good!) on every single level, it also manages to be incredibly unique in that every last moment means something, and nary a minute is squandered in providing top-notch humour and genius writing. To me there is no point where you can say "They should have left this scene out". Because every scene included was necessary and brilliantly constructed. It just never gets old. cool

If you haven't seen Toy Story 2, no matter how old you are, you just have to. wink grin

Nostalgia city! cool

Regarding the latter, I had never heard Get In The Swing by Sparks. shocked And the only down side was that Virginia Plain - one of the most avant-garde songs of all time and only about 2'57" long - was cut off about half way through. angry


Yes, Get in the swing was a hit, as was Amateur Hour, and their best IMO, "When do I get to sing My Way?"

Spotted an article on the BBC website.

Sixteen Amish men and women are in court in Ohio charged with beard and hair cutting.

Many Amish believe that the Bible instructs women to wear their hair long and for men to stop shaving after marriage. The hair cutting was apparently part of a feud directed by a 'breakaway Amish bishop'.

Now I stress that is not the bit I found amusing.

The bit that made me smile was the name of the bishop who allegedly directed the attacks was...

Samuel Mullet.

That happened a while ago. I remember when it was all over the news. What that man did was terrible. The Amish are kind people. The bishop was crazy, we know a lot more than the public about that case, seeing that a relative works with the Amish.

Just been reading a tongue in cheek article by Charlie Brooker in the Guardian about how the British don't seem that excited by the Olympics so thank goodness for the sponsors.

The bit that made me laugh out loud was:

"You could further embrace the Olympic spirit by slurping a Coca-Cola (official Olympic drink) followed by a Twirl from Cadbury's (official Olympic snack provider). Or really go the whole hog and polish off a couple of Sausage-and-Egg McMuffins at your local McDonald's (official Olympic restaurant), after which you should be ready to represent Britain in the 400-litre diarrhoea."

I don;t know about smile .... but I did have some huge laughs at work today with my colleagues ...... Pat (my manager who is 59) and I were showing our two (MUCH younger) colleagues the type of dancing that used to be done "in our day" - think Status Quo or Mud and you'll get the gist !!! rolleyes grin Of course they thought this was very funny (as did we to be honest ..... we were pretty crap)
Then they proceeded to try and teach us the sort of "dancing" they do when they go clubbing ....... I guess you had to be there .... but oh my days it was just too funny.

(we did actually manage to get a few customers fed in between times too ..... honest !!)

But it doesn't feel as magical and fun to me in comparison to most of the rest of the song (parts 1-3 and 5 especially), it mostly feels like a really long keyboard jam used to flesh out the song a bit more; an awesome solo, but a bit of a cold-hearted, unmagical one.

Here's how I rank the sections.

Ikhnaton and Itsacon and Their Band of Merry Men
Willow Farm
Lover's Leap
The Guaranteed Eternal Sanctuary Man
Apocalypse in 9/8
As Sure as Eggs is Eggs
How Dare I Be So Beautiful?

Part 3 is definitely my favourite because it's just so joyous and adventurous. grin

A better way of explaining why I don't think A9/8 is the best part: It doesn't really make me think of anything. Progressive rock music has the ability to paint excellent pictures in one's mind, and Genesis are awesome at this. For example, when I hear Part 3 of the song, it actually makes me imagine an epic fantasy battle going on. When I hear Part 1 I always imagine the romance of the lovers, and the "six saintly shrouded men". But when I hear Apocolypse... I just imagine Tony Banks playing a keyboard. tongue

England are shortly to kick off an international friendly football match against Norway. And of course this fixture revives memories of this all time classic:

Unfortunately, I'll be miserable for a few more days.

Normally a week or two of preparation does the trick, but I've been so busy dealing with my investment clients who are freaking-out about the plunging stock markets....

Watching the Punk Britannia and Synth Britannia programmes on BBC Four last night. Whilst I'm not a big fan of punk, it was still a nostalgia trip as it was an era when I was growing up. As for the synthpop stuff, they showed most of the bands that I was really into in the early 1980s before I discovered the likes of Genesis and Pink Floyd. These included Ultravox, O.M.D., Yazoo, Depeche Mode, Eurythmics, Tears For Fears, etc. smiley

I saw some of that Synth Britannia prog last night too. Unlike you though, Nige, I'd already discovered Genesis, Pink Floyd and the like long before then, so think how bad a time it was for me musically when I was going up town with my mates! I seemed to be the only woman in the world who loved prog! Actually, watching it last night took me back a bit and rekindled some happy memories of people long gone out of my life! Out of those bands on, I must admit I loved Tears For Fears and that album, Songs From the Big Chair, was superb. Bit of a genius that Roland Orzabal, I think!

Funnily enough, at the time I really liked The Hurting, especially Mad World and the other singles. Whilst I liked Shout, I found - and still find - Everybody Wants To Rule The World to be one of the most irritating and annoying songs ever. undecided Hence Songs From The Big Chair almost completely passed me by. Earlier today I listened to The Hurting (via Spotify) for the first time in about 25 years and was very disappointed by it. Oh well...

Earlier today I listened to The Hurting (via Spotify) for the first time in about 25 years and was very disappointed by it. Oh well...


Couldn't stand Everybody Wants to Rule the World either! Loved The Working Hour though, that was fantastic! Sowing the Seeds of Love had a few good tracks on, e.g. The Year of the Knife, Woman in Chains, Advice for the Young at Heart, Standing on the Corner of the Third World and more! Must get it out and play it again!

Remember back in the 70s when it was safe to leave a baby in a pram outside the shop while you went in? (Not that I was old enough then!) I heard of someone doing that and going home without the baby, going back a few hours later and it was still there!

Royal Ascot (the horse racing, for those of you outside the UK!) starts today, and my route from home to work takes me close to Ascot.

There is a road which gets a lot more traffic than usual during Ascot week, and the residents of that road have taken to making scarecrows which are displayed outside their properties. Collections are taken for local charities.

Horse and jockey scarecrows are an obvious and popular theme but I have seen ones of the Royal Family too (given we're not that far from Windsor either).

Some are a bit ropey but others look great and a lot of work has obviously gone into some of them, and it always makes me smile as I drive down that road. cheesy

My office is partly built over a lake (yes, really). About this time of year we get lots of little tadpoles all turning into frogs, and they go hopping about everywhere in the car park when it's been raining, as it has this morning. A few even managed to find their way into our office reception.

There is of course a flip side to this: the bit that didn't put a smile on my face last year was the fact that after a few days all over the place were little tiny frog shaped 'splats' on the paths round the office and in the car park. I was doing my very best not to step on any but they were all over the place; and even being careful I got home to find one still adhering to the bottom of my shoe. sad

U2 made a CD for it's fan club members. 22 songs from their last tour that fans picked by voting.

It's called U22. Sound is amazing (it's not in Mono... lol) , and a lot of the live stuff at it's best.

BAD and AT THE END OF THE WORLD are particularly amazing. cool

Did you catch the Genesis fan club joke reference to the MONO CD?


It's expensive, but I have to say whoever manages the U2 web-site and Fan Club do a very professional job.

My CD was late arriving. When I called to check the lady knew exactly where it was, when i had joined, asked if I had any more U2 fan club issues. I was gob smacked, it was more professional than my bank!

As a matter of fact, the fictional character who's known for saying "absolutely" is Rocky Balboa, who is of course from Philly.

Doubtful. The thing is... my son's school is 150 miles west of my home, while Philly/NJ is 60 miles east. It's going to be a pian, but Gabriel is probably the only artist (apart from Genesis, Pink Floyd or The Beatles) that I'd do this for. The Who is doing a Quadrophenia show in Philly in early December, and while I'd love to see that, it's too much of a hassle (and my wife wouldn't enjoy it). sad

Today for me what put a big smile on my face was the ABBA tribute band that played at work this afternoon. Nt the biggest ABBA fan in the world - but you can't deny they are definitely family fun - everyone who came to the Farm today were gathered outside the grill and bbq area where the band were playing and we were all singing along and generally having a really good time. Great fun and lots of very happy people grin

He may only get to wear it a few times as he doesn't really go any where to wear things like that, but he's worth it , and he's going to love it!!!

August 11th MM, thanks for asking. kiss



Coal Miner since age of 15, worked in horrendous conditions 7 days a week when we were kinds, choking dust, deafening noises, couldn't even stand up straight when he was down the pit, and he says the worst part was all the rats that were around and would eat anything if you left a crack for them to get into. Grosssssslipsrsealed. His eyes are shot from drilling with no eye protection, he gets black lung disability allowance.

He's a big grumpy but an amazing man, with the help of my sisters he still lives alone in the house I grew up in.

This is going to be an emotional trip! I leave on the 4th to spend time with him and help with the preparations, 3 parties in total!

His take on Genesis in 1974...'Bloody rubbish and they will never last' He also said the same about Rod Stewart. grin

Your dad is a very lucky man to have such a great daughter. I can feel the love, respect, and admiration jumping out from this post as well as the one about his coal mining days. I know he's a great dad, just by knowing you. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree!

As a proud father myself, it warms my heart to read your posts about your dad. Enjoy the party, and your time with him. I know you will, and I can guarantee he'll love the shirt, and having you there with him. Make sure to take plenty of pics. The ones from when he visited you in Miami were great, and I'm looking forward to seeing ones from this trip.

I fly to Manchester at midnight tonight, I'm hoping they haven't sent too many customs people down to London to cover for the Olympics, last time I was in Manchester (APRil) I was in line for 90 minutes. So If I don't have to wait this time that will put a smile on my face for sure!!!

The Oogieloves, a detestable new film for love-deprived pre-school kids, has thankfully become the biggest box-office flop in history. smiley It damn right deserves it - the film is an abomination which no pre-school child should ever be forced to sit through. It's so good to know that many families are boycotting it and hopefully preventing it from ever becoming a franchise. wink On the flipside, it also saddens me to know that there will be, unfortunately, lots of ill-informed parents around the world taking their children to see that youth-insulting garbage. sad

When I first saw the trailer for it on YouTube, I assumed it was merely a joke trailer; a parody of poor-quality childrens films. It damn looked like it. But, to the world's horror and disbelief, it's not. It's a real film and easily the most obnoxious, putrid cinematic filth to ever grace our screens. angry

You speak with feeling! Have you sat through the entire film?

I must admit I've never heard of it (hardly ever go to cinema and don't even watch much TV these days) but reading the synopsis on wikipedia had me reaching for the bucket....'Goobie, Zoozie and Toofie lose the last five magical balloons in all of Lovelyloveville'.

Apparently it took less than $50 per movie theatre on its opening day in the US so there can't be that many parents taking their kids to watch it...

Good thing too. With such low production values it barely deserves to make anything.

I haven't watched the film of course (why on Earth would I want to?) but I've watched the trailer and read reviews, and I think it's one of the most appalling and insulting releases ever. Insulting not just to decent cinema, but to the young children who deserve much better.

Watching the Paralympic Games, in person, accompanied by my son, Richard. We saw the swimming finals on Friday evening (and were even featured being interviewed on the big screen before the start) and the athletics finals last night.

Both were spectacular sporting events, with some memorable finishes and exceptional performances, that were given justifiably wonderful support by the audiences but above all there was a heart-warming spirit amongst virtually everyone that we met.

One post that really made me smile on FOLR when I first joined the G forum early 2003. There was a 'say opposite of what you think' thread. It was actually quite clever in parts, and one post that really made me laugh said:

"I'm really glad Peter Gabriel left Genesis or I would never have heard 'In too Deep." grin

Blimey Thomas, chill! It was just a joke! It really made me laugh!

One post that really made me smile on FOLR when I first joined the G forum early 2003. There was a 'say opposite of what you think' thread. It was actually quite clever in parts, and one post that really made me laugh said:

"I'm really glad Peter Gabriel left Genesis or I would never have heard 'In too Deep." grin


(Hope that makes sense)


Cool!

The first Sunday in months that I can do whatever I want all day. No catch-up work from the office, I mowed the lawn yesterday, my wife is out of town....

Gonna watch football, play a computer game, listen to music, read a book, take the dog for a long walk, go for a drive, make chicken pamigiana for dinner. WOOHOO! smiley

Just for the record guys, I wasn't angry at Dust. Just a tad miffed, and only for a short period. wink I'm long over it. tongue It was just unexpected at the time. Though now I feel kind of ashamed inside for liking In Too Deep. grin

As long as you don't have to go to prayer services, just sit back and enjoy. It ain't Passover--during which the types of food are restricted--so the meals should be pretty good! Mmmmmm, brisket. As for the jokes, wait until people start laughing and then just smile and say, "Oy!" cheesy

Today I went to a pensions seminar held at the Bafta (British academy of film and television arts) venue in London.

The theatre used for the seminar had a number of seats which were 'endowed' by the great and the good in the entertainment industry - I saw seats with little plaques on the back proclaiming the seat had been endowed by Ronnie Barker; Thora Hird; and, er,.... Madonna....(and many more which I didn't get a chance to read!).

As a Star Trek fan I was particularly pleased to see the seat I'd been sitting in had been endowed by Patrick Stewart! grin

Well, it means that it's not such an issue living where I do - but I still feel I need to downsize and it would be an added bonus to pay less rent too. I now feel I am finally in a place where I am comfortable moving away from the 'family home'. I have a family coming to look at mine on Monday eve. I love their place and would be very happy to move there - but we will see. wink

Thanks Squigs. smiley As I had listened to the album half a dozen times by streaming from The Guardian website, it doesn't really seem like a new album. That said, I am enjoying it even though it's a bit of a mixed bag.
