"I get up when I'm down
I can't swim but my soul won't drown
I do believe, i've got flare
I've got speed and I walk on air."

WOO HOO! 151,000 hits. Thanks for your feedback. Ok you've convinced me to keep going with the blog. I've recieved many emails in addition to the feedback below, thanks. I will struggle on with this blog ...that was odd. There I was scribbling away at the keyboard and I look up to see that I'd accidentally written it in Hindi. So that's what the new button is at the top of my compose page! Anyway I see we've lost 2.5 cultural icons this last week, the 2 being Michaelangelo Antonioni and Ingmar Bergman and the .5 being Mike Reid. I can honestly say that I thought that all three were dead ages ago but there you are. Mike Reid I remember from Runaround and telling "My mother in law was so fat..." etc jokes in the seventies and the other two I remember from their great films. I remember watching Seventh Seal whilst still drunk one night coming home from the pub(s), possibly not the best frame of mind to watch a movie like that but there you go. Michaelangelo Antonioni I've only watched Blow Up and Zabriskie point to be honest but I was sober for those. Hopefully now we'll have a couple of retrospectives of their films. I've been into watching a lot of films lately as well, thanks to Film Four showing a load of 'New Hollywood' stuff like I heart huckabees, Eternal sunshine, Garden State and Napoleon Dynamite. It unfortunately distracted me from writing my book (which will probably never get published and will be crap anyway) I did come up with germs of a few ideas for movies but no way to get them into the camera. Damn I wish I had some money. Ingmar Bergman didn't start making movies until he was 40 according to Channel Four news the other night so I still have time. Woo hoo two job interviews in a week and my carbon footprint is 5 times less than the UK average...only 1 tonne. See burning baby seals for fuel and insulating your roof with polar bear fur is environmetally better. The trouble I had convincing the council to give me a grant to improve the house though. Anyway without further ado here's the downloads. I've uploaded a film called 'Those Glory Glory Days' http://uk.imdb.com/title/tt0086433/ I hope that you enjoy it as it took ages to upload. I remember it from years ago... and according to the anoraky friend of mine it was the second film film ever shown on Channel Four and I tend not to argue as he's a bit like rain man ;) Also I've uploaded Half Man Half Biscuit's 2000 album 'Trouble over Bridgwater', Paul Weller Live in Hollywood USA of A, and the album by Mrs Suggs herself Bette Bright 1981'a Rhythm Breaks The Ice. Enjoy as I'm off now to scrape off the old puffin wallpaper and replace it with eco friendly chipped badger and fox fur stuff then I've got to make a Osprey egg omlette.
