The Daily Teaser — 22-7-2014: The Union

Right … 

I’m now slightly less rushed!

Yesterday morning, I managed to get up late: as a result of turning off my alarm, before it had gone off.

If you’ll excuse me quoting Homer Simpson, at this point … ?

D’oh … !


What was frustrating … ?

Was I had hoped to mention what I’d been doing on Sunday night.

Bless ’er, my kid sister Anna had managed to get hold of tickets: to the Vue cinema in Romford, where they were streaming the last of the Monty Python (Mostly) Live shows from the O2 Arena.

OK, it was a cinema, rather than the Arena, itself.

I’m not complaining.

Anna and I got to see possibly the most influential comedy troop doing their best known sketches, live.

I just wish I’d managed to record the Parrot Sketch, and the Crunchy Frog sketch.

They were hysterical: to the point of making my chin hurt* … !

Ahem … !

The Daily Teaser — 21-7-2014: Artemis


I got up late!

I slept through my alarm … !

I HATE sleeping through my alarm!

Which is a shame, I wanted to take my time, telling you I and my sister were at a cinema in Romford, last night.

Watching the streamed version of the live show, these guys were doing.

But let’s move on.

Sightseers … Ben Wheatley’s other Film … 

19th July, 2014.

You know, there’s times when a boy has to rely on the kindness of friends.

Even if they’re not actually present, in the room.

You’ve possibly worked out I’m a film fan, haven’t you … ?

And one who — at the moment — is a little on the skint side.

Literally skint: I think I’ve got about £1·50 to my name.

Nowhere near enough to buy my usual £15 iTunes card I]d usually get, every so often, to buy an iTunes card.

Which is how I usually rent movies.

Saying that … ?

SAYING that, a few of my friends are usually kind enough to let me rip their DVD collection.

I get a digital copy of a film my friends think I may like.   They get their film backed up: AND ready to watch in a digital form.

Saying that … ?

Well, saying that, I am blowed if I can remember quite who I borrowed Ben Wheatley’s Sightseers from.

More on that in the morning, I think …


The Daily Teaser — 20-7-2014

I think I can safely say one thing.

Just the one thing.

Ye gods, that was one extremely hot night!

No, really!

I think I’m like a lot of people in the UK.   I’ve grown up in a country that’s got a fairly moderate climate.

That was then.

Lord knows what’s happened, since.

But Britain’s got warmer!

Which means night like last night — hot, sweaty, windows-wide-open nights — are getting more frequent.

Personally … ?

Well, personally, I’m thinking I’d like to beg, borrow or steal some air-conditioning.

That’s got to be better than just opening the windows!

The Daily Teaser — 19-7-2014

I have to admit, last night was … 

Well, rainy, for a start.

Although that’s maybe putting it mildly.

It was thundering.   And my lord, that was something to watch.


As is the TV documentary I’ve got on in the background: and called The Joy Of The Guitar Riff.

Which has covered practically everything from Chuck Berry to My Bloody Valentine.

All the up to Nirvana’s Smells Like Teen Spirit, and whatever that White Stripes song is.

Nice … !
