'Jimmy White's Brother' - according to rumour after Jimmy White's older brother died from cancer his mates stole his body from the morgue and took him out on the 'piss' with them for one last time round Tooting. Therefore this euphemism is used to describe a rather dull and uninteresting friend who you take to the pub with a group of mates and makes no conversation even when someone speaks to him.
but in South London?
I'm not that close to Mark Kermode as you are. I'll ask myverygoodfriendedgar about it - is Simon Pegg in it?
It was made in the 80s and is about a couple of guys who go to stay at their boss' holiday home and when they get there they find him dead. Instead of informing the authorities, they pretend he's still alive and party throughout the weekend with him.
if I found a dead person, the first thing I'd do is have a party.
You can tell by the hand-held cinema veritÃ© style.
Very funny film.
I never saw the sequel, though.
One of the wilder legends yet to be committed to any Stones biography is the night Ronnie's friend, the Snooker champion Jimmy White, took his dead brother, Martin, out on the town. He died in 1996 aged 52 from cancer.
Is this a true story? "Yes, they took him out, got him all dressed up and had him back in the morgue by the morning. They gave him a big party." They found a load of beer cans at the morgue the next day.
"Jimmy said, 'It was what he would have wanted. He did just go and die on us.' They couldn't leave him without seeing him again."
I so wish my music threads could get so much...
and say that anyone who didn't like Stockhausen when they were 11 is not a music fan
What ! I can't start a thread about Frances McKee or Barzin ?
