I don’t want no Astronaut’s Hair Pomade. I’m a Dapper Dan man!
Oh man, I used to just drive around in Vice City listening to this station. An hour of 80s classics.
Finished reading The Boy Who Couldn’t Sleep And Never Had To, by DC Pierson. Thought it was a Young Adult novel but once the swearing, drug taking and sex started I realised it wasn’t.
Sort of a coming-of-age friendship story with a little sci-fi thrown in, it’s funny, extremely geeky and just a shade tragic.

I saw Evil Dead earlier today. Completely blown away by it. Was looking merely adequete for the first half hour, but once it kicks off it doesn’t let up. Seriously gory, extremely grisly with some nasty moments that were so far past the line that the line was a dot.
The big criticism seems to be that it doesn’t have the original’s humour. I think these people have forgotten that it was Evil Dead 2 that added the slapstick, the original was an unpolished video nasty that was all about gore and horror.
There are plenty of subtle nods to the 1981 film, the ending is utterly beserk and the effects are perfect. Go see it and wait till after the credits if you’re a fan of the original trilogy.

My grandfather, Tommy McCusker died this morning. I went to work anyway and spent most of the day not thinking about it. I went straight to the wake afterward and his body was already home from the hospital. The last time I saw him he was sitting on the sofa, asleep.
I can’t be sad when I think of him. All my memories of him are good ones.
I remember, when I was a child he’d scoop my hands and feet together in his huge hands and rock me back and forth between his legs whilst singing, then swing me up onto his shoulders.
I remember being totally enthralled by the story of how a bull once escaped from the market and charged him, flipping him over a hedge.
He was an undertaker and was still working until they took him to the hospital. In the eighties he did the funerals of 2 of the hunger strikers. The RUC stopped the hearse and tried to take the keys from him. “Not bloody likely” he replied. They fought and dragged him from the car. It was all caught on the news cameras but wasn’t shown on any british tv screens. He managed to get the tape from an American network.
Northern Ireland’s Deputy First Minister tweeted about his “admiration of such a good man”
At some point every catholic family (and some protestant too, because he had such a reputation) in the area had him handle a loved one’s burial. I was always told by them what a good decent man he was and how considerate he was dealing with them.
There was a queue to get into the house tonight.
New Zealand passed a bill allowing legal same-sex marriage Wednesday, prompting House of Reps to burst into song. Beautiful song.
Motivational Megafauna, they’re extinct but they are proud of you.
Forgot to mention- another thing I loved in Oblivion was the tech. Everything had a cool look, from the rifle to the various vehicles and gadgets. All ipod white, like every sci-fi flick in the past decade, but I can’t deny it looks good.
