First time I've read this thread.

It's brilliant.

Welcome, thank you. Take many of the ramblings with a pinch of salt!

Sopranos is quite good.  When finished, give Boardwalk Empire a look.  Very good too. 

I had no idea it was so old. Tony's mother is hilarious: 'Ohhh, I wish the Lord would take me!' Lol.

First time getting woken up by an earthquake today. I'm currently only a few hundred km from where it happened. I thought it was just loud thunder. The other one hit as I was fully awake but it also just felt like a rather long burst of thunder. I'm hoping there's no more aftershocks. It's been devastating.

The media is saying the aftershocks are huge.

My girlfriend is getting tarred and feathered if she provokes me again. She tried (and succeeded) to wind me up just now by sending me some tenth-rate Guardian article which slagged off my favourite jacket. Well, look at the fucking state of the bozo who wrote it:



Not only is this subhuman bag of estrogen writing about some appalling TV show for menopausal old harridans, but he's actually got the
unthinkable audacity to comment on men's style. Unbelievable. I'd love to hack him to bits with an axe.

Yep, there's been loads of them. This is an incredibly large-scale disaster now with thousands dead. The sound of it during the night was crazy considering how far it travelled.

I'd love to punch my bladder right in the face. All I do is piss 24/7.

I wouldn't have thought so. I've been drinking it since I was a child and only average around 4 cups per day. The doctor has given me Oxybutynin to try, but the common side effects (e.g. reduced ability to sweat) wouldn't be good for me just now, so I'm not taking it. I've had frequent headaches for years, so me pissing all the time is probably linked to cognitive decline or a brain tumor, knowing my luck.

I'd like to collaborate with Vince B and utilize his mechanical knowledge to help me invent a hydraulic reacher-grabber tool fitted with a flywheel inside the jaws. We would then attach this to the front of my car and use it to clasp on to the rear wheel of any loser cyclist I encounter on the roads. I would then be able to accelerate them up to unimaginable speeds before I release it and send them hurling towards their untimely demise.

I'm surprised more cyclists aren't killed. I would never feel safe riding a bike in traffic.

It's dangerous as hell and most of them are fucking idiots dressed up like glow-in-the-dark condoms. I'd like to make cycling illegal on public roads. Where I'm from, riding a bicycle as an adult was always the ultimate sign of being a loser. Only junkies do it because they have no other options, lol. Those of them on B-roads only have themselves to blame when they get knocked off. It would be almost impossible to miss them at certain points on a bendy road.

I'm absolutely sick of flying. I've never liked it and I really almost lost my temper with a fat Russian cunt and his stupid screaming kid today. No one could rest because of his booming, retard voice, and then his mongoloid child started screaming its head off for the next hour. Kids under the age of five shouldn't even be allowed on planes. Just fuck off.

I agree again. I have a problem with "exploding ears syndrome" (I don't know the medical term) on flights that can last for days afterwards so I always hated flying anyway. Now I just hate traveling period, even driving for more than a half hour or so. Just wasted time.

That's your Eustachian tubes. A friend I used to dive with developed it. I had to have my inner ear rebuilt and have the opposite problem now: they pop all the time. I just have to move my jaw slightly and my ears pop. It's annoying as hell.

Feels like my life is over now that I've finished The Sopranos. I don't know what to do with myself in the evenings. I wish the Lord would take me.

Gotta check out Mr. Inbetween.  It's an Australian television show that aired over here in the states on FX.  It's really fucking good.

Thanks, nikkas. I annoy the hell out of myself by being so picky and always assuming everything is shit. The Shield and Mr. Inbetween look pretty decent, though. Worth a try.

Watched the new John Wick last night. Taking it for what it is, it was pretty good. The best of the bunch due to the music and cinematography being cool. Donnie Yen was a poor choice as the token Chinaman, though. He looked and acted so much like Mr. Chow that it just made things funny. Also, there was no point at all in adding the new Black guy with the dog, unless it's specifically to have a John Woke spinoff franchise, which is what I suspect will happen now.

Isn't Keanu a Chinaman?

Fuck knows; he's weird enough to be. Probably just does the typical American thing and claims he's Chinese because his great, great granddad once shagged a Nanjing comfort woman.
