I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I've watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those ... moments will be lost in time, like tears...in rain.

Broke up with my "Queen of The Harpies" gf - "Painya" (you know that 1 truly fucked up relationship you have to have to understand that it was a truly fucked relationship) and the small group of (male) friends who chose her over me including my ex-business partner Dick (couple even fucked her - mmmm... slops, but already knowing what a fucked up bitch she could be my only question is "Why?").
A jizz-monkey - "Dumpster" moved in with me (gotta pay the rent... or not as was the case) who then did a runner aided by Dick.
My besty Ron-as-in-Later (that was his nom de plume) then took it upon himself to nick Dick's massive pot plant as revenge for seeing his mate so royally fucked over. He then slowly sold me large bags of that stuff over several months for a very small financial outlay (I'm talking silver coins - asked no questions, he told me no lies). Ron only told me that a few years ago. He died last Dec. I miss you mate.
So - Dick I enjoyed smoking all your pot you wanker. Cheers fuck-knuckle. I hope to god you still have the misfortune of being Painya's friend/wanna-be fuck buddy (she never liked the fatties btw).
Names changed cause I put a shit-load of sugar in Dumpster's bike tank & happily watched the business I'd built up (without a lot of Dick's help) crumble to not-very much AFTER he'd bought me out.

WOW! That was so puerile. Nice & cathartic.

Went to see "The Babadook" this week.
For those of you who haven't seen it, it's an Aussie horror film about a malevolent and incoherent spirit that invades people's homes, causing them to have violent and antisocial thoughts, and once it's entered your home, you can't get rid of it.

Basically, it's the Sob Carehome Movie.

Aerosmith I Don't Want To Miss A Thing
This was always a cheesy rock ballad from a shit 90's film for me. Until, soon after the birth of my daughter, I heard on the radio whist driving late one night that it was originally written about a parent watching their child sleep - and suddenly all of the lyrics made sense.

I had to pull over and stop the car. Can't listen to it now without welling up.

Bagpuss
The starting music and sepia tinted photos set me off. Just the innocence and simplicity of it.

I heard an interview with Oliver Postgate a few years ago and he said that he had no idea about how deeply it moved people until he met a young woman at some exhibition he was talking at. She told him that she had had a horrible abused childhood but her quiet place in her head was with Bagpuss and the others and she hugged him and wouldn't let go. He was, of course, rather embarrassed by the whole thing.
