Procrastinator : Extraordinaire
><> ><> ><> ><> ><> ><> ><> ><> ><> ><> ><> ><> ><>
Welcome,to my little part of England.
For h2g2: I will try to research where no researcher has researched before.But first,for me: i need to spend more time at the computers,which is difficult when they crash and even die on me; freezing in hideous formations.
Books read & Films watched
This is purely in my own interpretaion providing you with minutes of reading and seconds of stimulation.Or as one friend is often fond of saying:"it's something to do"
There's 'Duncton Wood'by William Horwood
A book about Moles in the English countryside and according to the blurb the tale is "one of an ancient community losing its soul-but saved by courage and love"
The human emotions carry this book along.It is slightly long winded but engages the soul.
Or 2001 :space oddysee by Arthur C Clarke
Set in this century,everything is more technologically advanced with mankind venturing into the depths of the solar system.
This book certainly takes you into another dimension and at many stages it is very gripping.However,like space, it left me slightly empty in side.
Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency by the founding member of this website
This book looks at the fundamental interconnetedness of all things and you would just have to read it to know it.
Great,full of irrelevant humour.Doesn't try to take on too much.I liked the bit about the sofa.
Gridiron by Philip Kerr
Set in the not so distant future; Gridiron looks at architechnology(incorporating computers into buildings).It's a thriller
about the drawbacks of this symbiotic relationship.
Very modern,dark wit is prominent in this well researched book.A cocktail of ingredients that goes down well.
Now for those films:
Kevin &Perry go large directed by Ed Bye
Featuring two of the (most popular?)characters from the British sketch show:Harry Enfield &Chums.This looks at two teenagers who want to lose their virginity in Ibiza.
There were some moments of great irony,but the copious use of false erections stretched[no pun intended] the film out far beyond its limits .The orgasm came early.
Frequency by ?
The connections made between a father and his son over a distance of thirty years.
This is an intriging,original film with excellent performances from Dennis Quaid and the son,a John somebodyoranother.A fantastic thriller-human drama
and finally for now:Chickenrun by the imagination of Nick Park
From the same stable as Wallace &Gromit,this is about plasticine poultry.These chickens spend the film getting out of the concentration camp-farm run by the tweedys[humans].
The simple things in life can be the most effective.This was superbly charming.It doesn't matter how old you are;go and see it- it's still on at some british cinemas
