I'd waited long enough. I fucking hit him hard. The ball was there (I think). Take that you *beep*. And don't ever stand over me sneering about fake injuries.

Last 3 days, Chat Gim (Seven Swords) Plot Outline: Seven warriors come together to protect a village from a diabolical General. Boring. Mundane. Pretty.

You take 3 famous European directors and 3 famous Edgar Allan Poe stories, you mix 'em, add a dose of pretension and European elitism, and presto! You've got yourself a movie.

Regan was the best thing to happen to punk since Jeffrey Hyman changed his name to Joey Ramone.

From Nomeansno to D.O.A. and Minor Threat. Punk never really got any better.

Same years as Glasnost. I'm sure you've noticed I was joking. And it wasn't just Russkies, that's an over-simplification of the red menace, which at its peak encompassed socialists, junkies, liberals, gays and non-believers of all races and colours. Of course this all lead to a great decade of punk ...

Dude, glasnost, you know, how Soviet Russia spontaneously reinvented itself into a kinder, gentler world superpower. Poof.

Rocky flicks are usually good for a chuckle or two. Except V, God, I hated that one. What Rocky needs, really really needs, is more Ivan Drago. That was a blast.

On the subject of suicide, I meant to say that, I really did, probably got lost 'round the time I was making myself busy with this d'n'b music a friend recommended. Yes, I have friends, poor things.
