I saw a post by TheWanker, last night I believe. But, I've noticed that he has been absent and unaccounted for, more or less, for the past few days.meru said:Well, what happened to him? I don't think I've seen any posts recently - even the reclusive barfo is out-posting him.
How does one do that? Did he cancel his internet subscription service? If I was supposed to be writing something (as indeed I am) I would find the lure of the internet irresistible.Schilly said:Wanker is taking time away to work on writing a Novel.
Have you ever seen "The Young Ones" (stupid, if then-revolutionary 80s comedy show)? If so, you'd recognize Rik playing chess in The Slaughtered Lamb. "Must the world know our business?"theWanker said:truth is that I just came back the day before yesterday from England on a two week vacation. went and saw the inlaws up in Norfolk and drove around on the wrong side of the road in the Yorkshire Dales and moors (where the dude in "American Werewolf in London" gets bit. "Stay on the path.")
"Sensitive crimes in a punt"my inlaws convinced me to watch one of the funniest movies I've ever seen--"Withnail and I." have you seen that one, meru? the character Danny even beats Bill Murray/Caddyshack as the absolutely funniest drugged out zombie of all time. one of his many great lines is now in my sig.
Loved the The Young Ones.meru said:Have you ever seen "The Young Ones" (stupid, if then-revolutionary 80s comedy show)? If so, you'd recognize Rik playing chess in The Slaughtered Lamb. "Must the world know our business?"
So, naturally, you popped him one, and said "that's for being a no-talent Republican hack", right?theWanker said:two months ago I was five feet away from Bruce Willis, who was playing with his band The Accelerators in a club he owns up here near Sun Valley
I don't think people know what to do with him. Now he's latched on with Robert Altman he's in a little better class of movies. But really, after Withnail and Warlock, there's no way but down.Id. Bruce Willis was in Hudson Hawk, which is one of a dozen crappy films Richard E Grant somehow got stuck in. fwiw.
