is on film 4 i'm watching it, i've never seen it before.
Do you like it?
but the older I've got, the more like a 6th form film project it becomes
& yes, great movie. & acid house is good too (the director's next movie i believe).
unrelated trainspotting bit- in watching 'rome', the legion captain looked so fucking familiar, but i just could not place him. after a few episodes, it finally hit me that it is tommy....
was a life less ordinary.
i love trainspotting. really good. but shallow grave is EVEN BETTER.
acid house is another irvine welsh book. which was made into a film as well. maybe just a tv adaptation.
which i remember seeing late on channel 4 one night when i was really drunk. i tiink someone might turn into an insect, like in that kafka story.
i remember liking it though i think, city of god is just starting on 4, which i like
i love that film. *flicks between the two*
thought it was great, though I haven't read the book. Is it as good?
that all the words are written as they sound instead of how they are spelt.
i.e. in scots.
crazy Scots! I may give it a try then. I see we have the book in our house.
remember the book is a bit more like a bunch of short stories.
i think the narrator is different in most of them.
that confused me when i went to read it.
it didn't have any character as good as begby. begby rocks.
for a RIGHT MENTAL BASTARD.
the scene with the bar fight where he throws his glass over the rail.... epic.
I have spent some time in Edinburgh.
I was constantly mystified by the accent.
Especially two rather drunk men. In a one minute exchange I understood approx 5 words.
and i understand the accent.
but i find it a real effort just to read what's written. i ended up having to read most of it out loud to get what he was saying.
you get used to the style of writing quite quickly, and you get used to it, which ultimately makes the book better i think because you get to understand the characters better
but, being from edinburgh, i probably would have pronounced it more or less the same in my head anyway... so it was less of an advantage to me.
wanna fight about it?
yeah go on then.
*actually wins the fight*
I don't have any legs, not any more
I was though.
no one who was in 'nam would ever boast about it like that
I'm a pacifist anyway.
*punches IndieAndy* :D
you're as bad as Hitler
please don't draw parallels between me and Hitler.
< + 3 does not = love.
but i just talked to you, damn.
*does a celebratory dance around the room but goes too far, so much so that doubtful loses all respect for him*
So true. You shouldn't be mean. Now i've lost faith in you.
saying 'i love you' is just a survival tool.
No faith in me, no respect for me ' i may as well die now...actually that's no different from how everyone else feels about me. So there! ha!
(respected me, i mean)
oh IndieAndy. I would sign in on msn to annoy/reassure you but my internet is pitifully slow.
I'm perhaps not as loserish as i come across on the internets
too cool for me by far. :(
although you may have already seen it
hope you appreciate it, i went googling n evryfink
<3 kitten. *happy again*
but I loved it when I was 12.
but the book is better. far better.
Even if the book was better, -10 points for using such a gay cliché.
i'm an english graduate
bit is sick. :(
although i like the book LOTS more, i love things written in dialect (perhaps from the sense of superiority i get from being able to understand it pretty easily :D)
I watched Young Adam tonight, i thought it was really good too.
Yay naked ewan mcgregor!
understand the dialect are just not making any effort. after about a few pages its simple.
should be my husband! i bought a copy of that Wonderland magazine thing this issue round simply due to his photoshoot dressed as a bear within it.
Young Adam is brilliant - it's so difficult to work out whether you love or hate his character...he's sort of blameless in some ways, but also totally wrong.
might dig it out...
it's also quite difficult to look at barges the same, these days
but more wrong because he's so totally passive about everything. And i agree about the love/hate thing with his character.
The imagery in it was also pretty lovely
In short, thumbs up.
Carlisle is ace and it's probably Mcgregors best film. Real and nitty gritty; I love the surreal toilet bit too.
A sixteen year old mother of three vomiting in an open sewer, cheered on by bairns chewing at potato cakes.
where I find Ewan attractive. Love it.
all pale and shit covered. :( not attractive.
