Come on Eileen

Got an email this morning with the subject "I deflowered your sister!".

Not sure why I'm getting twenty year old 'news'.

Most interestingly it's from someone called Eileen . . .

Something Wicked this way Dumbs

The other day a friend gave me a pair of dodgy DVDs by Wicked Planet. I forget the titles.

It listed on the cover "Special Features: *Animated Menus *Chapter Selections", which seems pretty lame. Is 'old hat' really even a feature these days, never mind special?

It goes on "*2 Full Length Films On 2 Separate Discs Combined Running Time 2 Hours Approx". I don't suppose I would've been more impressed by two films on one disc, since two hours is the native time of DVD, but somehow I'm still not sold on these 'features'.

There's more: "*Languages: English". Never really thought of English as languages. Region 1 accents on a region 2 disc, perhaps? Didn't Oscar Wilde describe England and America as two regions divided by a common language?

And finally "*Aspect Ratio: Full Screen". Doesn't really mean much - what if your full screen aspect ratio is different to mine: which one will you get?

I did skip through one disc at speed (hooray for chapter selections!). It seemed to be written by the guy who wrote the blurb on the cover, so I gave them back.

I'll stick to good old Science Fiction, Double Feature.

M&S turns to S&M???

Apparently a £149 leather dress has become an M&S best seller.

This one:

Doesn't look too shoddy.

Top Shop tried a moulded rubber mini-skirt
a few years ago, to little effect. 

I'll see if I can dig out a photo.
