  1. Bugger'd if ah know- jist get the Dominoes oot.
  2. The winter solstice is very pleasant- with the old pagan feelings of death and rebirth. The summer solstice is also most fine-at least once in your life be there for sunrise on the summer solstice. Cheers for the webcam link- will be online- along with third year and the multimedia projector.
  3. A pedant writes-the solstice happens twice every year Anyway- happy solstice you old pagan. Of course it should be happy Samhain.
  4. The young(ish) moderators are too busy celebrating the solstice.
  5. Told you all before- can't type. That's a job for lassies and the younger generation
  6. Was the Pasley follow up "The Man with no Job"? Feeling reasonably happy today- should we not get promoted looks as if fissole will be in the second as well, decent ground, good nosh inside- decent boozers close by.
  7. Did you ever read the book? Genuine question-never knew it was based on a book. Sometimes films make a Horlicks of a decent book. Although I thought clockwork orange was a ggod book I thought the film was poor- always wondered if Kubrick's decision to pull the film was due to the stories of tramps being set on fire which the press used against the film or mibies jist than Stan decided it was a poor film.
  8. Quite- watching the detectives is also quite magnificent. In fact old Declan is one of our finest lyricists. If you get a chance listen to some of his more recent work- "When I was cruel"is especially fine. BTW HHiBS- who was entertaining the Bhigots?
  9. Yes been there, seen it, done it Dammit- should have known that Indeed- a film filled with classic lines, Leone was the man for action films in the late sixties- often thought that Peckinpah was OTT- The wild bunch was OK but Straw Dogs
  10. No 5- American Werewolf- the cinema scene?
  11. Oh Lord NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Doesn't bear examination- Bob's record (no pun intended) with other people's songs is exceedingly patchy. Interesting that you mentioned a French singer- I mentally concurred and googled to get his name- It was BJ Thomas who did the song. Have a keek at him here. Older readers like Ching will recognise the cravat in the photae as the sine qua non of bad taste in the late sixties. Now why do I think that Sach Distel did it? A bit more googling and the it seems that Sacha did cover it. French lyrics here. Dammit I should know No.5
  12. 1. Disney bear thinking about 3. Being a Greenock fella could I jist say that "Raindrops keep falling on my head".
  13. Dammit Well done that man
  14. Oops- though that You're f'cking nicked was from loot Booger. Must watch it again Also though No2 was from Holy Grail Tom- No.1 Old Orson in a B+W Classic set in post war Vienna.
  15. Once again Mel makes it into the list And Joe Orton And the Pythons 4 and 5 have me, though a small voice thinks that 5 might be Gregory's Girl- but that might be the lack of alcohol speaking.
  16. And as for good lines can I go for a sixth? "Smoke me a kipper, I'll be back for breakfast"
  17. HHiBSS- No 4. A line from boys from the Blackstuff?
  18. Surely- like what I wrote? Or were both used?
  19. Ah yes- the brilliant plan in Bladder 4 which had only one flaw- it was bollocks Silent movie- migod it's yoinks since I've seen it. Still think that the 15 schnitzengruben was a better line from a Mel Brooks' film.
  20. 3, 4, and 5 have me baffled. Help !
  21. 1. "being as this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question: 'Do I feel lucky?' Well, do ya punk? " 2."No, thank you. Fifteen is my limit on schnitzengruben." 3. "Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, she walks into mine." 4."I love the smell of napalm in the morning. " 5."If you were in it, you knew all about it. You knew how to keep watch on filthy nights, and how to go without sleep; how to bury the dead, and how to die without wasting anyone's time. "
  22. Indeed- though i'm sure i remember reading that it was about the 80th take when it finally all came together. The other interesting thing about these ads is that they are internationalised, the same ad used all over with just different voice overs, and lettering.
  23. Good God guys- any five Guinness ads. And the Beer ads which intercut Griff Rhyss Jones with old B+W films.
  24. Nor was Taj Mahal called Taj Mahal
  25. Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo Sadly it's true- the best white soul/blues singer in the whole world ever- No wonder he shortened it. This site tells all and reveals that Sid's hero had the unpunkish name of John Simon Ritchie.
