My son loves this. It is lovely and imaginative and has a pleasingly unusual sense of humour. It's very soothing.

I love The Moon and the Old Lady's handbag and the little shallot.

Me and my friends made papier-mâché Smashing Pumpkins heads at uni. We stuck Billy Corgan and James Iha at the top of a lamppost. Billy Corgan stayed up there for a year, staring down ghoulishly at people passing by.

I spotted five abandoned umbrellas on the ground on the walk to work yesterday. One was left, horribly broken, in the centre of a massive puddle as if its owner had gone under.

Today: wind.

Apparently Corbin divorced one of his three wives due to him not wanting their child to attend a private school.

Office gossip.

My mum told me she saw an owl, but I'm not sure if I believe her.

Is it good for anything other than just playing the new Zelda and once that is complete placing it in the bin?

The first episode of Legion is completely brilant.

Perhaps this is true of any film, but considering it is an animation, presumably they could make an alternate ending that makes better sense.

This song popped into my head. I've always loved it. I'd never tried to properly understand the lyrics.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Birdhouse_in_Your_Soul

QUOTE
Lyrics[edit]

The song tells the story, in oblique terms, of a nightlight with the appearance of a blue canary, from the point of view of the nightlight itself. The summation of its opening statements ("I'm your only friend; I'm not your only friend, but I'm a little glowing friend, but really I'm not actually your friend; but I am") reveals that while it is not really a friend in the traditional sense of the word, its job as a nocturnal protector of its owner (the listener) makes it their only friend while they sleep. It asks the listener to make a birdhouse (being a safe place for something small and vulnerable) for the light it creates in their mind and soul.

The nightlight then goes on to proclaim its identity ("my name is 'blue canary;' one note, spelled 'L-I-T-E'"), and that it will always serve its intended purpose to the listener and their room. It references a picture in the room, probably a lighthouse ("There's a picture opposite me of my primitive ancestry, which stood on rocky shores and kept the beaches shipwreck-free"), and states that while it respects the job a lighthouse does, it would cause shipwrecks if it tried to serve as a lighthouse itself ("Though I respect that a lot, I'd be fired if that were my job, after killing Jason off and countless screaming Argonauts"). It is simply a "guardian angel" for its friend and owner.

As the song fades, the line "while you're at it, keep the night-lite on inside the birdhouse in your soul" echoes the chorus, essentially telling the listener to keep all the good things that provide light in their soul protected.

The lyric "My story's infinite / Like the Longines Symphonette / It doesn't rest" is a reference to the Longines Symphonette Society, which back in the 1960s and 1970s, released numerous albums consisting of recordings of various classical and classic pieces of music,[4][dubious – discuss] as well as to the Longines Symphonette, a watch showcased at the 1964 New York World's Fair. In fact, band member John Linnell attended the fair as a child, which is featured in some of their other songs. It may also be a reference to the Longines Symphonette clock/radio/lamp of the 1960s and 1970s, which would be near the canary nightlight and, being mains powered, would not rest.

Look at this mens CV. Makes me feel barely human.

Obviously a lot of schmoozing and self promotion involved by most parties.

This is amazing. It is exactly as if someone had written a sketch.

It's an ad from one of the Monty Python books, isn't it? Unless you are making a subtle joke. I tend not to understand jokes


The Framley Examiner was an actually funny spoof news paper.

Is that an ad from the Framley Examiner?

Also, we watched Taboo. I quite like it apart from Tom Hardy whose acting is really dull. He's the worst thing about it.
