I would argue that Best in Show is better than Spinal Tap, and I should be able to relate to Spinal Tap more because I was in a shite rock band. The only dogs I've ever owned have been idiots, and I don't get Dog Shows because smart dogs are boring and stupid ones are awesome.

The Jokes on Teresa May, the Tories don't stand a chance in my constituency. North Belfast will either be won by DUP Hard Right Christian Fundamentalists, or Sinn Fein ex-IRA Abstentionists.

As far as I'm aware, the DUP exist as a rubber-stamp for Conservative policy...

Well, yes, unless it goes against their religion.

In other news, I was shopping in my local supermarket and they still had loads of Easter Eggs up, all reduced to clear. Normally they pack them all away to be sold the following year, but these must've reached the end of their shelf life. Every single one was from Nestle. Full Shelves of Nestle Easter Eggs that nobody wanted to buy. It gave me an odd feeling. I think it was community pride?

Fast and Furious 8

It starts with Vin Diesel winning a race in an old Cuban Banger powered by laughing gas while going backwards and on fire. It gradually descends into glorious silliness after that.

The Rock is one charismatic sum'bitch it's gotta be said. He completely outshines the rest of the regular cast (not hard), and Charlize Theron is wonderful as always.

I like it.

I know that every Christmas, when I visit my parents, me and my dad can watch some Star Wars. From now until the end of time.

Doesn't have to be any good. I just enjoy the new tradition.

The early discworld novels aren't great. They're just satire on the fantasy genre, a pastiche, a buncha scenes taking the piss outta fantasy tropes poorly stiched together. Discworld doesn't get good until Pratchett establishes the main players and builds rules in which the stories take place. Once the satire moves from general fantasy satire to specific themes, it's trancendential. The novels with Granny Weatherwax and Sam Vimes (later Tiffany Aching) are some of the best books you will ever read.

Neil Gaiman stated it perfectly. Pratchett was a very angry man. Vimes represents his anger at the system, Weatherwax, his anger at humanity's failures in general.

I thought whatsisface with the white cloak was completely forgetable. They should have doubled down and just used Vader as the primary antagonist.

Metabarons.That was funting epic!

That's good to hear it rapidly (well less so these days) chargin' up my to read list.

It really is fantastic. The only detraction is the way it's framed. It's a narrator claiming these stories are the greatest ever told. You don't get to write your own reviews.

I don't like using the term under-rated, it makes it sound like I'm right and everyone else is wrong (although this is usually the case).


Last Action Hero is hugely under-rated. It's the perfect Sunday afternoon film.

So now it's illegal to take your own children out of school in term-time because it's inconvenient for schools? Get the f*ck.

Note to teachers: You work for society, not the other way around.

So certain people have to work for society but you don't?

This Brexit thing has caused me a massive identity crisis. Before, I always considered myself neither British nor Irish. Although most of my family lived south of the border (actually North since they were in Donegal) I was happy to be Norn Irish, and a pragmatic unionist. Yet, since last July, I've actually been thinking about a United Ireland. In my gut, I suppose I've always wanted it, but I didn't let the fire in my belly melt the ice in my head.

The notion of a hard border is horrible. I have many relatives whom I didn't get to know as a kid. The hard border tripled, even quadrupled travel times from Derry to Donegal.

The problem is, the biggest advocates for UI, Sinn Fein, have absolutely no plan for it. If they do they've kept it far to close to their chests. It's like when UKIP campaigned for Brexit, yet had absolutely no plan. Oh, there's Eire Nua, but that's an idea from the 70s. A lot of water has passed under the bridge since then, and there's a lot of blood in that water.

TLDR: United Ireland. Discuss.

That feeling when your bastard 18 year old half feral cat ...

Aren't all cats bastards?

Unless you're one of those crazy cat people that has wee wedding ceremonies for their pets...

We can take the path the lunatic 0.1% tell us to take and walk it as they instruct or we can find the better ways ourselves. I'm all for ignoring them when they're wrong and finding the better ways. We don't need these idiots to tell us what's good or bad for us, and that doesn't just apply to the people in this country.

Are you still talking about brexit? That path was chosen by a grat deal more than 0.1%, lunatic or otherwise. How that path is navigated however...I'll grant you that.

And when you say this country, you really mean England don't you? The prime minister has shown little regard for Northern Ireland. She didn't bother to meet with our government before triggering Article 50.

Fair enough, we don't have a government at the minute, and ye want to know something Shark? Not having a government isn't a good thing.
