i think one correlation
with all these stories are peoples lack of respect for the homeless, obviously not b3tans by the sound of things but it seems apparent that we really do have some horrendous specimens of human beings in the world. or bankwag twunts to put it simply.

good on those who help out where possible to those ill-fortuned enough to end up living out of a cardboard box and wondering where the next meal/special brew is coming from. i think we can all take a leaf out of their books.

sorry, off topic but worth a mention i thought.

can we set up b3tan soup kitchens? a warm meal and some depraved humour to boot. sounds a good'un to me...

Control- Recent Ian Curtis Biopic
By Far My Favourite Film Ever,

ive always been a joy division fan since about the age of 10, and i like to think ive always "gotten" the music, as opposed to the current crop of fans who dont know anything. also, ian curtis is something of an inspiration to me.

i remember hearing about the film being announced in pre production a few years ago, and my heart skipped a beat then, and finally after what seemed like eternity the day of screening finally arrived.

theres a place in hull (gah) called hull screen, which is a sort of independent cinema, just 2 screens i think but you can catch some gems there, although it probably wont be open for much longer if the council wastes any more money on stupid investments and doesnt look after places like this. but anyways i digress, the stage was set, and the film started

for those of you who havent seen it i recommend it avidly; black and white, never once losing focus on the plot yet nurturing elements of humour and nostalgia (not taht id remember back then) and comes across as a kitchen sink drama of the 60's & 70's type era for british cinema.pretty inmpressive for a guy who previously had only done music videos for u2, JD etc (Anton corbijn)

i can rant and rave, and to be perfectly honest my grammar and whatnot is all over the place thanks to my hungover state, but at the end of the day, i came out of that cinema and cried, as did my viewing partner for the day. neither of us are particularly soft spots but we had just been hit by just under 2 hours of pure unequivocal visual and emotional beauty.

the next hour or so was spent with us nursing a pint, almost in shock of what we had seen, we were just blown away, and i havent felt that ever since. ive also never known a film to have that same effect on an 18 yr old and a 39 yr old.

the dvd is meant to be crammed with extras aswell, but i havent the monies to pick it up just yet.
i wont even download it, such is my respect for it.

go, go and watch it now!

apologies for length, i use words to cover the fact my penis is small

» My Biggest Disappointment

Most Music Fans
the ones who scream bloody murder when a band changes their musical style to evolve and further their passions. (bands including pendulum, red hot chili peppers etc)

the ones who vehemently disown bands when signing to a major label. what artist wouldnt want more to hear their work? (bands such as against me!, the clash, arctic monkeys etc)

and the ones who react so elitist when non fans come along, thus ruining any chance of new fans for the music itself.

apologies for length are weak, but these people just dont deserve the efforts given to them.
