She said baby, I like the cut of your J-I-B

Although I rarely-to-never update this blog, I got tagged and have nowt better to do, so here we are.

ONE (1) earliest film-related memory:

I don't remember it, but my mother tells me that when she took me to see Cinderealla (I was about 3 or 4), I left my seat, stood in the aisle of the cinema and took down my pants. When asked why I did this, I explained that it seemed like the right thing to do.

TWO (2) favorite lines from movies:

From Anchorman -

Will Ferrell: ... What are you guys doing here?
Guy-who-played-Mike-in-Friends: We've been here literally the whole time you have.

Now, this doesn't make any sense if you've not seen the film, and very little if you have, but there was something about that line that made me laugh more excessively than I had in a long while. Like, worryingly.

From Withnail and I -


... Once again, only funny if you've seen it.

THREE (3) jobs you'd do if you could not work in the industry:

Rent boy.
Fashion designer.
King Of The World.

FOUR (4) jobs you actually have held outside the industry:

Working on my dad's market stall.
Reading scripts and general not-doing-much for my literary agent cousin.
Waitressing at parties.

It's quite a CV.

THREE (3) book authors I like:

Evelyn Waugh.
Joseph Heller.
C S Lewis.

TWO (2) movies you'd like to remake or properties you'd like to adapt:

Oh, I don't know. Any movie I like enough to want to remake it, I'd be worried I wouldn't do justice to the original.

ONE (1) screenwriter you think is underrated:

Well, James Henry, of course.

My favourite bit in 'Anchorman' is when one of them says about Steve Carrol starting to drink again and he looks at the banana he's eating with a mock 'caught!' look on his face. I lose it every time.

Gracious me, is this still doing the rounds?

Also my favourite Withnail quote. Well, a tie with "shut that gate and keep it shut."

That the senses aroused during sleep influence the dream is well known, and can be experimentally verified; it is one of the certain but much overestimated results of the medical investigation of dreams.. Podington's clothes did not fit him, and his own outdoor suit was so shrunken as to be uncomfortable.. The living automaton went through the same motions as before, and again Elder Brown quaffed the fatal mixture.. In the forefront of the dream content the main scene appears as if a woman wished to make advances to me; in the dream idea the chief interest rests on the desire to enjoy disinterested love which shall cost nothing; this idea lies at the back of the talk about the beautiful eyes and the far-fetched allusion to spinach.. I set him again at the exhibition of the New Coventry Academy; and here he undertook a speaking part--as, in my boyish, worldly days, I remember the bills used to say of Mlle.. I--er--will, said the Colonel, almost as breathlessly. As she sat with folded hands her eyes fell upon--what? The pink bonnet with the blue plume! It may appear strange to those who do not understand such natures, but to me her next action was perfectly natural.. Besides, there was another reason, connected with the desire of horses to reach their homes, which prompted his return.. The disagreeable sensation which such dreams arouse is simply identical with the antipathy which endeavors--usually with success--to restrain us from the treatment or discussion of such subjects, and which must be overcome by all of us, if, in spite of its unpleasantness, we find it necessary to take the matter in hand.. Analysis will demonstrate at the same time how excellently adapted is the work of displacement to the concealment of desires.. The sexes are represented by a great variety of symbols, many of which would be at first quite incomprehensible had not the clews to the meaning been often obtained through other channels.. , the fulfillment of the wish to sleep is quite compatible with the retention of a certain amount of attention in a given direction.. Buller rose and stretched out his hand.. And the deacon? Well, well, with the lines in the crook of his elbow the deacon held out his arms to the widow and.. A caller, Ross dared not use his voice to shout nor his legs to run toward them.. from the perception system, and, secondly, from the pleasure and pain stimuli, which constitute the sole psychic quality produced in the transformation of energy within the apparatus.. And the elder, leaning his hand on the counter, laughed, too, until several other girls came half-way to the front.. I shall now add a few examples of the application of such symbolisms in dreams, which will serve to show how impossible it becomes to interpret a dream without taking into account the symbolism of dreams, and how imperatively it obtrudes itself in many cases.. There he stood, returning the pig's idiotic stare with an interest which must have led to the presumption that never before in all his varied life had he seen such a singular little creature.. The smoked salmon in the dream has not yet been traced...
