11th December 1979


Tuesday
Mar goes into hospital
Sam phoned at 4.30 & 10.30
Went to see mar in hospital she is having her op tomorrow
Watched ' Clockwork Orange' on video =brilliant
Fi failed her driving test


I have never seen this film since I saw it back in 1979... I wonder if I would still think it was 'brilliant'??
Been on my first Xmas do this afternoon/evening. Had a great meal in Cafe Rouge and a few gluweins in the German Market and a couple of drinks in the Rising Sun.
This is a cute little pub built in the 1600's which is squished between new developments.

Advent 11.
I have had no time to really look at these tonight (sorry CKX)..

this page is about kids TV themes ... if you click on a character you can hear their theme tune... simple :-) It must have taken them ages to do!

Tonights game I just can't open ... I think it is to do with my ISP as it has crashed once tonight already.... it's super crazy guitar maniac... sounds just up my street lol

I like this.. it is literal videos ... music videos redubbed to reflect what is actually happening in the video. Give it a go. There are three to watch ..


aw how sweet.....

I met Stanley Kubrick when he was sourcing some props for Clockwork Orange when I was working in the bowels of the RA - he found the big white phallic sculpture that was used as a murder weapon ........ blimey, that was a long time ago ......

DP, what were you doing in the bowels of the RA. Actually, I think I'd rather not know...

Watched Clockwork Orange only a couple of weeks ago. It's dated of course, and yet the themes of a violent, ambivalent, disrespectful underclass youth are very relevant. Although I understand why wearing a single, false eyelash didn't really catch on.

The "Singing In The Rain" scene is a brilliant bit of cinematic violence. My god, what's the world coming to if you can't kick the face off a toff once in a while, eh?

Biccy anyone?
