This is a question Starting something you couldn't finish

Finnbar says: I used to know a guy who tattooed LOVE across his left knuckles, but didn't tattoo HATE on the other knuckles because he was right-handed and realised he couldn't finish. Ever run out of skills or inspiration halfway through a job?

List of things I haven't finished:
2 novels
An HD porn site called 1080porn.co.uk
A video blog called The Naked Poet where I'd read a poem I'd written every day.
An affiliate site for Whisky Prices using Twitter
The film Atonement - been 62 minutes through for 7 months now

My brother says I'm like the Dad from American Dad.

Atonement
Don't bother. Hugely overrated apart from one sweeping, panoramic shot of the British forces at Dunkirk. I've said it before and I shall say it again, Kiera Knightly cannot act! And her canines are too pointy and jagged. Silly woman.

How top make a Keira Knightley
1. Take the eyes from a doe
2. Take two identical circular saw blades
3. Paint the tines of a garden rake in Brilliant White gloss. These are now teeth.
4. Glue the saw blades symmetrically above the rake tines. These are now cheekbones.
5. Glue the doe eyes above the saw blades. These are now, er, doe eyes.
6. Voila! One finished Keira Knightley, with approximately the same actig talent. Simply film a monochrome perfume commercial with a fantastically expensive dress stapled to the rake handle, and nobody will be any the wiser.

Ace. I'll make one...
and have a threesome with the missus.

Seriously, why do they keep giving the stupid, twig-like bint action roles? Casting her as the tough-as-nails Queen of the Iceni in that crap version of Arthur was insulting. And in Pirates of the Caribbean they couldn't have chosen a less credible and entertaining tom-boy swordswoman. The only potentially dangerous thing about her are those weird, vampiric fangs.

People were describing her performance in Atonement as mature, brilliant, oscar-worthy etc. but she is still just Keira Knightly being Keira bloody Knightly. No capacity to breathe life into a character, convey genuine emotion - the doe-eyes remain forever dead. Leave it at 62mins, old chum.
