I should be most ashamed of seeing? I should abandon to save time?

The image uploading thing is pretty basic. Very much a file uploader rather than tailored for images.

I've frequently wanted the tickbox delete myself. Maybe someday I'll get around to doing it. I wish I had more free time. As it is I've got so little I spend what I do have worrying about what I'm going to do with it, then run out before I get around to doing anything.

The Star Wars holiday special by spacejack (4.00 / 1) #2 Wed Apr 19, 2006 at 09:50:19 AM EST
makes the prequels look like Kubrick masterpieces. So I'm not sure if it's actually a waste of time or not.

A friend of mine gave me a copy of Corman's FF last year, and he's been pestering me to see it ever since. Somehow I just can't find the resolve to sit down and watch it - not even in a little window on my screen during work.

It's not very good by TheophileEscargot (2.00 / 0) #3 Wed Apr 19, 2006 at 09:57:41 AM EST
Not even in a so-bad-it's-good or so-cheesy-it's-good way.

It is unlikely that the good of a snail should reside in its shell: so is it likely that the good of a man should?

Where It=Fantastic Four that is by TheophileEscargot (2.00 / 0) #4 Wed Apr 19, 2006 at 10:15:58 AM EST
I thought the Star Wars Holiday Special was terrible enough to be funny, though I don't know how a stone-cold sober person would feel.

Steampunk? by thunderbee (4.00 / 1) #5 Wed Apr 19, 2006 at 01:27:27 PM EST
Have you seen Steamboy?
Very different from Miyazaki's work (I was pretty disappointed by Howl's Moving Castle, I'd rate it as his worst job) - but oh, so very Steampunk :-)

It's on my Amazon rental list by TheophileEscargot (2.00 / 0) #6 Wed Apr 19, 2006 at 08:51:22 PM EST
I think I had a theory once about movie science fiction always being twenty years behind written SF. If steampunk was started by The Difference Engine in 1990, that would make it about 15 years.

Midgets watched Howl's Moving Castle by Dr H0ffm4n (4.00 / 1) #8 Thu Apr 20, 2006 at 12:54:47 AM EST
From Amazon rentals. But this was on Tuesday and I've not sent it back yet as I thought WPKAW may want to see it. But she doesn't so I've gotta find time to watch it by myself. So it's not likely to be the same disc as the one you watched. Still, it's a weird thought that you could be handling the same DVD's as the FOML.

Thought of heading south? You're not that far from the Thames and Richmond Park.

I'm a fair way from there by TheophileEscargot (2.00 / 0) #10 Thu Apr 20, 2006 at 10:32:25 AM EST
It's about an hour's walk through housing estates I suppose. Thing is, I tend to do half of that walk every day, as it's pretty much due South to get to work.

Just looked at a map by nebbish (4.00 / 1) #11 Thu Apr 20, 2006 at 11:33:45 PM EST
Yeah - it's further than I thought. I have the same problem living in Brixton, there's just no-where to go for a pleasant stroll. Clapham Common's OK in winter, but the rest of the year it's too busy.
