    I'm Spartacus...

    In an absolute surprise to no one (Well, maybe to Kirk himself), Kirk Douglas died at the age of 103.

    Kirk Douglas, Indomitable Icon of Hollywood's Golden Age, Dies at 103.

    consider the number of tv/newspaper obituary writers who have
    drafted a kirk douglas obituary and then gone on to retire and die
    of old age before it can be run.

    RIP

    While Kirk was extremely proud of "Spartacus", especially the role
    he played in breaking the Hollywood Black List with it re Dalton Trumbo

    his favorite movie was, and ours as well,

    "Lonely Are the Brave"

    bought an inexpensive model kit for parts and they sent me the
    slightly more deluxe version, which comes with:
    - a few thimble-sized pots of paint
    - a paintbrush
    - tiny bottle of glue

    Which is fine, free is fine.

    Thing is, though, I already had a larger bottle of this glue for maybe
    30years and have barely used half. So I could probably time capsule
    this child bottle until 2050.

    I was given a Fokker Dr1 kit by someone at work for a bit of a joke at Xmas & it had the toy glue bottle too: at least it's better that the old squeezy tube that did a Peter North over the carpet at the slightest provocation.
    I've always preferred the brush on liquid cement myself though.

    want to hear something Twilight Zone?

    Vintage clock, hasn't been used for 30years. I wound it up about a
    year ago to test it and subsequently handled it once or twice to note
    details and take photos - interactions I would characterise as 'inanimate'.

    I sold the clock and the second I started wrapping it for postage it
    began ticking...

    no way to wind it down, so I put it aside and it kept ticking for a few
    hours, until just before midnight.

    one or more people could end up with this song stuck in their head:



    I am not willing to have that on my conscience.

    what's the deal with collars on polo shirts?

    i mean, it's not like you're going to select an appealing top from the sports/casual section, then think "this really needs a dickie bow or a cravat to set it off nicely"

    come on, fashion, sort it out



    and another thing ......

    why is a W called a "double U" when it's quite clearly 2 Vs???

    "i know enough to know what's instantly forgettable"
