A Less Stupid New Year To All


I’m an eternal optimist. As in the Thurber cartoon, I have ‘the true Emily Dickinson spirit except I get fed up occasionally’. But each year I hope the Western world will be less stupid than in the previous 12 months. Instead, I see Simon Cowell, Alan Carr and the cast of ‘The Only Way Is Essex’. I plough through books so badly written that even 1,000 monkeys with typewriters would have copy-edited them better. And this is what the human rights movement was for. I suppose we can be thankful it wasn’t a toilet roll called Martin Loo-fer King.

    Completely irrelevant – sorry – but didn’t know how else to ask, and I think / hope others might be interested so I may be forgiven…

    Is there a checklist of Bryant and May appearances anywhere? I know they’re in Soho Black, Rune, Disturbia, and a couple of shorts in Red Gloves – plus Darkest Day of course. Any others?

    Loved Hell Train. Many tropes very recognisable from Paperboy!

    Cheers, Steve

    Thanks Steve –

    I’ll work out their appearances and post it for you in a future blog piece.
