'titanic: the musical', and more

well now, all is grand here, and to the list of bizarre things i've seen in peoples' gardens this week i can add… ONE HERD OF ELEPHANTS. well, admittedly they weren't in someone's garden, but they were in a field. northern ireland really needs to sort that wild animals legislation business out. went to a really cool storytelling event in the ulster museum earlier which reaffirmed my faith in northern irish culture – although i have to add that the non-ironic titanic celebrations have hit a low which can only be described as overwhelmingly stupid with THIS offering…

jesus. anyway, in my attempt to avoid such nonsensical tat, all i can do, as a child of the twentieth century, is to watch television. therefore, last night, i had my debut viewing of 'marathon man', and a myriad of reactions to it. unfortunately, my brain cannot cope with any kind of spy / espionage / conspiracy theme in cinema. it's why i could never get on with james bond films. i also don't understand war movies…. i just can't tell who's on which side, and if there's any kind of double-crossing going on, i'm totally lost. i'm fully aware that i sound like an idiot, but it's true. so my reactions to 'marathon man' were something along these lines…..

guh…why did that old man just drive into a truck? what? diamonds? i don't understand. what's that got to do with roy scheider? whose side is he on? who's the japanese guy? i thought this was about nazis.

well, i still don't understand what's going on, and that fight scene was totally ridiculous. who's killing who now? i don't know. but i'm taking some small comfort in the fact that i'm sharing a haircut and a jumper collection with dustin hoffman, cos he's totally the man.

well, my lifelong icon laurence olivier just showed up, so it's going to get more clear i'm certain. no…he's just going to cut his hair into a frying pan. hmm. what? who killed who? is it safe? what? urgh…dental equipment…he's not really…urgh!!!

now i'm totally confused. all the people that i thought were dead weren't really dead. and is his girlfriend supposed to be a nazi or whatever? has EVERYONE betrayed everyone else??

that ending with the 'eat the diamonds' bit really sucked. i'm totally none the wiser, and fairly nonplussed.

    Tears of the sun? At least you had Dustin Hoffman to look at, and he is quite the dude.

    Well, that is a fair point, but there is also much of the Bruce Willis meaningful staring, which melts my corneas.

    Not that I would want you to divert from your work but a short post would keep your fans happy (!)

    flapjack crumbs
    a robin
    a girl
    man with stupid long hair that doesn't suit him
