Thou shalt not suck off rent boys

31 January 2006


Have to say, I am really enjoying the BBC’s new cop shpw, Life on Mars, its all about this detective who gets hit by a car in 2006 and wakes up in 1973. So either he has gone back in time or he is in a coma and this is all a dream. Cue lots of 70’s music, fashion, and hairstyles, not to mention bent cops and un-PC attitudes, and car chases through cardboard boxes. Retro man, it is the only way to go.

I know, that doesn’t make it sound all that great, but in reality this is a really funny show, with some great characters. Personally I just love DCI Hunt; he is just horrible and yet still manages to be a good guy, just about. “You are surrounded by armed bastards”

We’ve just had episode 4, of eight, but I hear a second season in being looked at.

Also, was some miles from the city, and I noticed FM has a little Last.fm chart, so I stole the idea. But in order to make the image (right col. down the bottom) legible I had to mess a little with the layout. So if you viewing has been altered and made icky let me know, I’ll regress.

    Sounds fun. Of course I'm imagining it with lots of flashy colours, funky sunglasses and psychedelic music, so who knows if it really is fun… ;)

    Layout messed up! Layout messed up! Abort! Abort!

    Anyway, still don't wanna watch your 70s cop show. I have a rule about watching the Beeb. I only do it with great reluctance. ROME was worth it. 70s coppers not. Plus they clash with me abusing the telly when I'm watching smallville in its total SHITNESS. How can a show make JAMES MARSTERS looks fugly?
    By the way, I LOVE LOGAN. I cannae say it enough times. Really. LOVE. I'm a sucker for bad boys who cry. Sigh.

  3. Did I spy Mercury Rev?

    Just fyi, the right column is now waaaay down at the bottom.

    Boo, hiss to layout issues. I'll return it to the "way it was"

    NM, don't worry, you don't have to watch Life On Mars, continue with your E4 abuse :)
    And yes, Logan is a dote. In an messed up psycho bad boy way.

    Anne, I believe you are thinking America in the 70's. So, quick, turn everything a shade of beige. Ta da! britain in the 70's.

    Oops, sorry FM, didn't spot your comment til now. Yup, I have one or two songs by Mercury Rev. A live version of Holes they did on the Jules Holland show, and Goddess on a Hiway.
    Weirdly, although I do enjoy those I'd never really think of looking for more.

    Actually, you do have to watch Life on Mars, cos it's just about the best thing on the telly at the mo'. Although how Tyler ever got to be a DI I will never know, he must be a bit thick if he didn't figure out that girl was setting him up within about 5 seconds!

  8. Fence says:

    Alan, he must have been thinking that girls in the 70's didn't do that sort of thing :) Did love the reaction to the idea of putting a telly in the pub.

    It's all right now, baby, it's aaaalright now.
    The layout that is.

  10. Fence says:

    Grand job.

    But you know, a month has gone by since the last major overhaul. Not saying anythings going to be changing. Just saying is all.

  11. NineMoons says:

    No. Stop. No. I abhor change. Change is the mindkiller. Change is the little death that brings total oblivion.
    Oh, and before I forget…
    I LOVE LOGAN. I might even

  12. Fence says:

    But the blog changes every day NM, new post = change. So you don't abhor all change!

    And you might even what exactly? Because we all love Logan.

  13. NineMoons says:

    Shit, how'd that happen? Now it looks like I was going to say something naughty…
    I was trying to say I might even heart him, using the old 3 and

  14. Fence says:

    And the bracket thing one uses for writing html. Thats the reason. But I can make it do it:
    <code> <3 </code>

  15. NineMoons says:

    DAMMIT. I had it in! I swear. Surely that should only excise my words if I use two of em? Anyway, I HEART Logan.
    Actually that may be why people started using the phrase I HEART someone stead of I SYMBOLIC HEART someone.
    I symbolic heart you, Fence. The bringer of Veronica Mars. And Logan Echolls. Symbolic sigh. End communication.

  16. Fence says:

    Well it is the start of a html tag see, and wp strips any tags apart from those mentioned up there *points*

    But if you want to use it simply use the code tag, with the brackets around it, then it'll display whatever you type
    <code>see I can stick < in I hope and a <3 </code></code>

  17. NineMoons says:

    Well, I can just about handle linking at this stage in my evolution as a blogger(ess) so I'll get you to splain at a later stage exactly what to do next time I want to explain how much I heart Logan.
    Which may not be for some time unless there's some expla fucking nation for the whole SPOILER party & drugs thingee…
    Can't believe I hafta go get my hair cut steada finding out WHAT HAPPENED! I did not see meltdown coming this fast. But then I didnae realise I was on disk 5 of a 6 disk set…

  18. Fence says:

    You mean you don't <code> <3 </code> evil Logan? Come on, he is great too.

  19. NineMoons says:

    I'm conflicted! And in the middle of the next episode (time out for haircut and chat with the mother) so can't REALLY talk about him now.

    It was so much easier justifying Evil Spike and Evil Angel(us). Hello, vampire! He's supposed to be evil… With humans whose lives take place in a non-Hellmouthy part of CA? I got nothing. Except the poor lost abused boy thing. And that gets old when you spend your work days doing what I do.
