Eighties movies often do it for me, but lately it's Only
Fools and Horses.

holding a small slither of glass or a fragment of pottery
and go "well maybe the vikings werent here after all"

echo-cho the first two posts
watched the two Burton Batmen in the bath in the last the
fortnight (not completely, or constantly)
Feel kinda guilty that I couldve watched something a bit
more interesting but it turns out I hadn't seen either all
the way through... i think they're better than the new ones

Firefly is pretty good! Obligatory comment discussing its
truncated form, given the cancellation of the show. Did you
ever watch the film, Serenity?

I tell you what I do (sidestepping this Firefly horseshit),
I listen to "old-time" American radio sci-fi/horror shows on
YouTube like X-Minus One orBoris Karloff - Tales of Mystery
& Imagination, and I'm asleep within 3 minutes.

maybe something like The Office or Extras. Fawlty Towers or
Alan Partridge. Curb your enthusiasm. Seinfeld. These shows
take me to my safe place.

Movie-wise - just about anything from Wes Anderson, I
suppose. Else, something with Peter Sellers. Dr Strangelove,
The Party, or the original Pink Panther. I LOVE the original
Pink Panther. Or any Pink Panthers for that matter*. 'Clue',
with Tim Curry. I must have seen it a 100 times.

Clue's great, I forgot about that, must get that to watch as
I have got my son into playing the game (he always wins, the
jammy sod. He dicks about like he's not paying attention and
the BAM! solves it (I think he looks at everyone else's
cards)) Last week I watched an episode of Fawlty Towers for
the first time in years (The Hotel Inspectors).

There's a lovely interview with Peter Sellers and Michael
Parkinson which you've probably seen, if you can get through
the first minute where he's a comedy Nazi https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1mbUdsQfSq0

A REALLY good interview is Clive James with Peter Cook and
Barry Humphries https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YH7PYdByWao

I loved Clue as a kid. My sister and I watched it together.
It's our movie. We never get tired of quoting it to one
another. Especially Mrs. White (BIG SPOILER) “flames..
on the side of my face…. heaving breaths”

cheers for the linkage, don’t particularly remember that
Parkinson interview but my memory is terrible, watched it
thank u

*also forgot to mention The Larry Sanders Show. I haven’t
had my series escape lately, so I think I may go for a TLS
watch-through number 3, or 4 in the coming weeks.

the Peter Cook interview is actually very good and
insightful. I want to say 'educational'. Look at him smoke
like that.

I have The Secret Policeman's ball on VHS in the cupboard
(along with some Only Fools and Horses, RD). Thanks to my
dad.

The Arrival was a good recent movie. Been reading Alan
Moore's Jerusalem for a while. It's great. Also been reading
his collab with his now wife Melinda Gebbie: Lost Girls.

Saw Sex Tape on the box with the missus and we actually had
a good laugh. With mrs Dust it tends to be romantic comedies
that work well, she's not a huge film buff. Bridesmaids is
my fave mrs Dust movie.

Watching loads of Only fools and horses. Will go through
Alan Partdidge again soon.

Still in the midst of reading The Sandman by Neil Gayman.

Some TV/films that I've played on loop at one time or
another:
Black Books
The Mighty Boosh
Home Movies
The Office (UK)
Extras
Tron Legacy
Zoolander

I still like to watch Home Movies (the Brendon Small
cartoon) regularly. I just put on a few hours worth and
play guitar or work on circuits or clean or eat. It's a
great show.

nice one, i should like to read some Alan Moore, I like Only
Fools and horses as well, especially before Cassandra and
Raquel when it became a bit more predictable. I love the
episode where Rodney
is learning how to use a word processor on an amstrad or
something

i just finished a book called the difference engine by
William Gibson & Bruce Sterling, its about the idea that
they managed to construct Charles Babbage's clockwork
computers in the early 19th century, thus history took a
completely difference course and the Victorians used steam
powered, clockwork computing engines to build a surveillance
states. Its quite a good book, sort disappointing ending,
but i enjoyed it
