"We can go for a walk where it's quiet and dry
And talk about precious things
But the rain that flattens my hair ...
Oh, these are the things that kill me."
This is me as a character in The Simpsons, I made it via the Simpsons movie website (http://www.simpsonsmovie.com/main.html?cid=en) I especially liked playing the games. Although I am not as sad the people on the leader board some of them have hundred's of thousands of points. Anyway I'm looking forward to the movie and may go down to the cinema to see it... providing I can go to a screening without kids in it. I made that mistake back in the '80's when me and a few mates from the Artillery barracks went to see Ghostbusters 2 on a Saturday morning. It was just like those scenes in the movies when the kids are just running riot, jumping up, shouting and throwing stuff. Never again, which is a shame as I love all those Pixar things and not just those Kevin Smith movies where people say "Fuck". Which is no bad thing either. I do enjoy my movies it has to be said, I even got around to watching 'Garden State' which was recommended by a bloke I used to work with last year, but wasn't in the mood to watch. I must say that he was right, I did enjoy it. Beautifully shot, excellently acted and a good story...(all of which was no excuse to keep my dvds though Mr Hambridge). Bloody students, anyway I may have to get hold of a larger external hard drive as these two are full of old films, tv and some more modern stuff too like Life on Mars and My Name Is Earl. Still it's kept me awake and off of the daytime tv. The trouble is I keep finding all this great sci fi stuff I used to watch (currently trying to watch 6 Million Dollar man). Mind you unlike when I originally watched them I won't be jumping around in the part or running in slo mo going din-ni-ni-ni-ni-ni-ni-ni-ni-ni-ni-ner. Neither will I ride a bike with a playing card pegged into the spokes to make it sound like a motorbike, those things along with white dog shit have disappeared into the past. So have decent Dr Who episodes it seems. It comes to something when I'd rather watch the Sylvester McCoy and Bonnie Langford episodes than endure the latest seasons... and yet I still watch through a season. I really hated the one with Michelle Collins as she had all the acting ability of a sponge. Less depth than a piece of lino and failed to portray all the gravitas needed to convince me that she was supposedly a starship captain. All the way through the episode I kept expecting her to say "Ian, Phil and Grunt Mitchell have broken the engine again." But then the season finale took the biscuit with the over the top acting by the usually good John Simm. What with the stolen ideas from Return Of The Jedi, Flash Gordon, A helicarrier lifted from Nick Fury agent of S.H.I.E.L.D (Hi Marvel fans) and how the hell did the Doctor get transformed into Gollum? Besides which I always thought The Master was sinister not half insane and half OTT. Still there were good points in the series like the one where the Doctor was stuck in 1969 and communicated via dvd 'easter eggs' and the two where he had become human at the school in 1914. I'm just glad I don't buy a tv licence is all I'm saying. It's not all bad though as we have the return of Hyperspace to keep me going. I did enjoy A Scanner Darkly in the week too with a lovely cartoon Winona Ryder et al. Richard Linklater does make a good movie even if Homer finds them boring.

Here's the music which is what you've all been waiting for rarther than me blathering on an on. Reposts of the Man Or Astroman stuff, repost of the Best of the Beat album. My dvd convertion of the original Blade Runner cut. Then I've uploaded for your pleasure The Oasis album Definitely Maybe (plus the singles from it too) and then I've uploaded Evening Session priority tunes to keep the Britpop vibe going. Enjoy.

One more thing comment on whether you think I should keep this blog going or not. I'm in two minds.

I've dowloaded bits and pieces over the months, but I'd also agree there's plenty you write that makes me nod my head in agreement and chuckle.

For that reason alone I'd agree - keep it going!
