nurse, gimme a sharp thingie, stat!

i have become addicted to my stats. i still think most people are lured here under false pretences because my language is usually so fucking goshdarn inappropriate and they think they'll have porn and naked bosoms and pink beaver shots and whatnot, but instead they end up with the contents of my head scattered haphazardly on the shag rug of this forum. so yeah, i come here and look at my stats and lurk and skulk in the background, checking out the security camera footage and getting all excited about my albanian audience and whatnot.

there was a pathway, a direction, a concept i was going to present to you with the above introduction, but alas, and alack, i went off in seventeen directions at once and when i came back it was all, "what happened? i'm confused!"

oh, wait! i know! i was going to tell you that somebody went to an old post of mine and i followed him/her and found this little gem of vintage me. enjoy. i did.

i could say this frequent posting is part of the NOMOBLOMOROVO or whatever it's called, but i've never even attempted to do that thing because i'm a total iconoclast, yo!

Oh, yeah, I forgot about that. Considered nanowrimo this year, but just couldn't face it. I might be able to do a post a day, though. Thanks for the reminder.

Phew!......I think so at least.

As your previous post sort of slipped under the radar, perhaps I could comment on that here. I was very much into sci-fi in my younger years (says he, stroking his imaginary waist-long white beard, with loads of gravitas); so yes I do remember the book. Had no interest in watching the film, which would probably been an exercise in ego-boosting for the script writer, someone who completely missed the point of the story. One of the worst offenders in that way was the script writer of "Lord of the Rings", which to me is not sci-fi, but what the hell.

I do currently have three or four sets of books which I re-read from time to time.

Now, off to your party, and have a good time.

zhoen, you're welcome.

tom, dune the movie needs to be seen. it is an epic and glorious homage to all the things that were wrong with the 80's. also, it was david lynch, so on top of that it had some serious weirdness thrown in. i think it's utterly unwatchable (at least with a straight face) but i admit i secretly love it.

the best thing to do with books made into movies, is to look at them as separate beasties, evolved from the same branch of proto-beastie, but now just cousins. at its best, a film can be a fabulous thing in its own right (i admit i LOVE LOVE LOVE the lord of the rings trilogy, despite some serious misgivings) and at its worst, it can be drivel. but hey, that is as true of films as of most other things in life.

as for the concert - it was fabulous.
