"Moments of love, hate, poetry, frustration, action, surrender, delight, humiliation, justice, cruelty, resignation, surprise, disgust, resentment, self-loathing, pity, fury, peace of mind - those tiny epiphanies, in which the absolute possibilities and temporal limits of anyone's existance were revealed."

Anyway thought I'd read it in anticipation of seeing
Julie Burchill Is Away on the Edinburgh Fringe. More about that later.

Gah! In my dreams I'd be a music DJ anyway. I think as ever the problem is I just don't have much ambition to be just another voice yabbering away about nothing.

It was just as enjoyable to watch now as it was when I used to rush home from school, to be parked in front of the telly in time for it to start. Julia Sawalha, (AKA Lynda Day, AKA Attilla The Skirt, Editrix, fashion disaster area and teen role model extraordinaire) says in the commentary for the last episode that it's kind of sad to look back on making the show because they were such good times, and I found myself feeing quite sad too, all the fresh faced (and in the case of Dexter - nearly fresh faced) actors will be in their wrinkly thirties by now...
Mind you for the rest of the commentary all she can remember from the show were the bits where they got to snog on screen. They were going out at the time, I remember reading about it in Look In!
Watching telly relieved me of the hangover caused by DJ-ing and hanging out with Kirby after their gig at Stereo...

Anyway, I've nearly finished it, having yet to tackle all the lists.
Here's what City of Sound thinks of it.

The question has to be asked -Have the Coens lost it? well, I quite liked The Hudsucker Proxy, controversially my least favorites of theirs have been Raising Arizona and The Man Who Wasn't There, and even though Intolerable Cruelty was below their usual par, it still made for a better than average comedy, but The Ladykillers was pointless, unfunny, and only made bearable by the gospel music.
The drunken ned who'd let himself in via the fire exit left the building in disgust!
Some times you just need a big dumb action movie. Like The Transporter or something - Ah noisy, thinly plotted, riotous nonsense!
Finally on a cinematic note. Does Brando's passing mean that they'll show some of his lost movies on TV - Viva Zapata?

For some unknown reason the person selling Sopranos videos on eBay has got the theme tune to what we think is the Red Hand Gang. This prompted a flood of nostalgia, triggered mostly by this picture of the gang. Apparently there were only ever 12 episodes. Weird what an effect it had on the childhood imagination.
Mr Stooge made me a panda! Thanks Kenfold!
which in turn lead me to Google for pandas, and I found a music blog called Soviet Panda which is a little hectic but interesting.
As there is nothing but sport on TV, I intend to watch all of the episodes of The Sopranos again, hence visits to eBay. I won't look at that site though as it no doubt gives all the plotlines away!
