  1. Heard this interview a while ago and found it quite chilling. Donny's comment about US being run by a child reminded me of it. http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p04dggn1
  2. Jings, he's a brave man, I suppose the instinct to protect family was strong but inaccurate or not it only takes one lucky shot. I always think that the best knowledge I got from the pub being held up was I now know beyond all doubt I'm not brave. I hear people say what they'd do or not do if faced with danger and I believe no one knows until they're literally faced with that danger. My friends and family always told I'd throw them in front of me to save myself. I'm glad he recovered but can't believe the other man got off especially as another policeman was a victim. Neilser, you're wee smiley face should be an embarrassed one, one video led to another and at 4am I ended up watching outtakes from Car Share. Knackered now!
  3. I was thinking, "this has a Saville feel to it" then he said he had been given the keys in a ceremony and (can't remember who exactly) ?? was even at the ceremony and it confirmed it. Just watched it on iplayer and really enjoyed it. Even had a wee greet with John at the end. What car was Mrs Hudson driving, I couldn't make out what badge said. It looked like a Honda to me but think it was meant to be something flashy?
  4. Right I'm reading wrong or you're typing on wee screen with big fingers or I'm in an episode of Sherlock. The shot person walked towards the man who was shooting the gun? Why? I've never been shot but worked in a bar where we had an armed hold up and whilst it's all a bit hazy I'm fairly sure I would have beaten Usain Bolt in my dash to get under a table. Or was it just a momentum thing? Did you mean the cousin had been shot more than once? How is he, alive I'm hoping? Now you may just to have been looking for a wee answer but I want full picture, none of your 'wife's cousin' nonsense, names and places please. It's January and I'm bored senseless, work is dead, social life is dead and cremated and there's not a drop of Baileys left in my house. Get onto a big keyboard and explain all. For instance I had it taking place in America and you just threw in South Africa as a wee afterthought, so get back on and start from the beginning. Neilser thank you for videos, reminded me to watch a bit of Alan Partridge to cheer up January.
  5. I don't know the answer but was the lady shot 'in the club' as in pregnant or was it a bar in a club? Reread and think it's probably latter as think second paragraph is saying 'shooter took lots of potshots but only hit him a few times.
  6. I really liked TTTW, film wasn't too bad. Have you read The Book Thief, if not try it next? Wasp Factory is my favourite Bank's book and although set in Scotland it's not necessarily 'Scottish' Exile, have a look for The Book Group. It was on a few years ago and I remember really enjoying it yet can't remember if it was fully reliant on being set in Glasgow and Glaswegian 'ways'. Plus Michelle Gomez was in it and I'd happily watch her read out the telephone directory.
  7. Re' classics; I knew I was 'grown up' the day I said "Gregory's Girl, Bus Stop and Arthur" in answer to the "What's your favourite films' question. I watched and read the classics, or rather I tried to, read some of them and managed others. I was a would be pretentious wee lovey who read crime novels on the sly. I spoke on Don Quixote for years purely from watching the musical, Man of La Mancha. Eventually read it through by the side of a pool in Cyprus and bloody loved it. Ulysses can away an' swing though. So I stopped 'ploughing' through books and only read what gripped me, until Lanark. I only started as I recognised the twat raving about them as a copy of a younger me and just felt he hadn't really read them. (I've dropped the pretension but the pettiness is alive and well.) So I ploughed through the first and danced through the rest. So he was a twat but I never called him on it as he introduced me to Mr Gray's words. From memory I think Iain Banks novels aren't necessarily 'Scottish'.
  8. Night after Christmas overnighter so dinner at 10.30pm consisted of cheese and onion pasties and Heinz spaghetti. Lunch and snacks until I fell asleep consisted of Dairy Milk, Golden Wonder pickled onion crisps, Double Decker, couple of After Eights, 3 pints of diluting orange juice and 4 cups of tea and a chocolate doughnut.
  9. There's a few people I'm going to tell this to and state it as a fact. They're stupid and gossipy so look forward to seeing how long before it's retold to me. Your "defence" can also be summed up by the expression, "you're no as daft as you look." Both made me smile.
  10. I'm a grumbling mumbling grump about that bridge. Saw a couple put one up, guy was skinny and I really thought I could have thrown him over but the girl was more wiry and wasn't sure I could take her so left them. I like spontaneity and romance but this is just romances version of flowers left at a death scene. If I was much younger and in young love I'd probably think it was the most beautiful thing ever.
  11. He was a good age but still sad to hear of his passing, especially the news he had Alzheimer's, a horrible thief of an illness. I loved his comedies, especially when partnered with Richard Prior but first and foremost he'll always be Willie Wonka to me.
  12. Not sure about that one, quite enjoyed all the lost and unrequited love endings but then strayed too far. it did though remind me of one of my favourite films whose ending always makes me sigh and cry. Audrey's last heartbreaking smile to him is perfection. Every single time I watch it I wish that, just this once when he turns round she'll be there on the step ready to run to him.
  13. Just watched that on Friday night.
