Now I'm watching The Fifth Element. Much better....... That was fantastic and I don't even like Bruce Willis.

Watching xXx - what wonderful hocum. I love the image of decadent Europe where people smoke and nightclubs have techno and flames and tesla coils and all the women are modelled on Louise Brooks. Of course everyone is evil apart from the American. Lots of rather too obvious product placement. Sadly it lost its impetus and just became weak. In fact pathetic. Terrible ending.

So there is the game show where people have to pick someone who gets a million quid, so surely you all just agree to pick one person and then split it 9 ways after? Or is that just too obvious?

I have been getting complaints. About the lack of titles on the RSS feed. Of course, I don't have titles anywhere. Do people want titles? Or perhaps I should just randomly generate things and drop in the title field? I could do clever things like grabbing the title from the page that was linked and using that. Is there a call for this sort of thing? Inquiring minds want to know.

There have been 6436 comments made to this weblog. Please note that there I have the added the start of a captcha mechanism to the comment page. I don't like to do it but I am getting sick of the moronic spammers. I had one this morning that looked as though they had actually looked at the link, so now either they are paying real people to type in the comment spam by hand (which you can't easily beatr) or else they are looking for people linking to particualr pages and generating a comment for that page and spamming it round. Which also sounds like hard work for a spam message that nobody will read. I have no clue why they think that comment spam gets them any audience share at all. Quite bizarre. Some of it doesn't even have any advertising material in it all.

Just watched the first two episodes of Entourage. I have to say I can't decide if it is any good or not. It might be a young persons programme.

Oooh, Mulvhill's and the Dawn from Mist Covered Mountain by De Dannan. Stonking tunes.
