"Hullo Hullo I'm back again - I'm back again"
(Not the best choice of comeback song on reflection.)

I hear there's a play on in Islington tomorrow night.
Can I come along?

The film's a bloody masterpiece I tell you. Funny, scary and original.

It is like a modern Jack The Giant Killer.

Can anyone recomend a software for the Mac that's like Photoshop but a bit cheaper?

I need something where I can make cut-outs of a drawing of a figure and the JPEG or PNG will be the shape of that figure.

Is that like a martial arts film? It's just that I heard that Richard Jobson had made one.

Agreed on Rocky Horror - I once saw it in Baker Street with loads of yanks in the audience, they had some routine of what to say in between the lines, not an experience I would want to repeat.

Totally do not agree on Withnail & I. Surely one of the best films known to a man and truly deserving of its cult status.

Didn't John Keenan used to promote gigs at the Irish Centre? Around 87-88?
I seem to recall talking to him about Curtis Mayfield and Gil Scott Heron.

In the late seventies the BBC made a production for schools of Zigger Zagger the play about football hooligans by Peter Terson. Does anybody out there have vid knocking about - or know where I can get one?

I thought it were good.

Any film with a talking beaver goes down well with me.

You got me wrong OC - I think the world of you chaps. I was just trying to be provocative - which judging by the two replies didn't work.

My own view is that with Humprhrey Lyttleton and John Peel gone - the BBC can go to hell now.

The survey question doesn't make sense. If you support the def sentence it would only be for certain crimes only.

You're not likely to be in favour of capital punishment for all crimes - or are you?

I suppose you lot think it's acceptable that a corporation funded by public money can spend so much money on Consultants

This is the book I was on about

Despite my foggy memory I do recall watching a TV programme showing one of MLK's relatives telling James Earl Ray in prison that he believed him to be innocent.

I believe that theory has largely been discredited.
But I don't know.

I thought it was very good - except the script was too much 'tie-up-all-the-loose-ends' polished and clinical. I thought the additional character who was a bit of a slob should have pared down and instead the film should have concentrated on the friendship of the main two.

I thought Gervais as the Dad was very funny - and overral thumbs up from me.

I am really surprised the film didn't do better than it did.

I had a book once - I think I let it to Glam - called something like Programmed to Kill or Orders to Kill and the premise was that James Earl Ray was innocent.

But I don't know if that's true. Is your book identifying James Earl Ray as the sole killer?

If this is all the dirt Despatches could dish out then I think it all goes to suggest that recreational drugs are NOT rife in British Football.

I missed Despatches tonight. I get the impression from the web it was a total non-story.

I personally feel very strongly that footballer should not be banned for tasting positive for cocaine. It's hardly cheating is it? They're not going to play better - though it might make the post-match interviews more interesting.

Francesco Flachi who played for my lot tested positive twice - and it robbed him of the last few years of his career. A real shame.
Jonathan Bachini was another player whose career was ruined for testing positive twice.
