Oh yes! :)

Viewing some films (World War Z springs to mind) through a haze of alcohol might improve them. ;)

And if it's all we only pass this way but once, what a perfect waste of time.

Did anyone else just not bother with the West End Festival yesterday on the basis that it's the same old thing each year?

Tried to buy tickets for a gig next Thursday at Oran Mor, tickets are £10. Get on-line to Ticketmaster, as Oran Mor don't do their own tickets, tickets now cost £12.
Groan, mumble, mutter etc.
Click to buy. We'll post them for £3 - "even tough it isn't secure" - but if you chose to pay £5, we'll guarantee their arrival. Tickets now cost £15.

Buying tickets for gigs is now a complete rip off, compared to the days when you just went up to the Apollo and bought the damn things.
All these added fees, like 'booking fees' what's that for?

Preachin' to the choir, guys, preachin' to the choir.

I quite fancied going to see Elbow frontman Guy Garvey at the ABC in Sauchiehall Street next month, but even before you add the booking fees and whatnot, the tickets are £31 a pop.

I was in town this afternoon and got the tickets, paying cash to avoid any other surcharges- GRCH and O2 charge £1 for every card transaction. Funnily enough, Tesco doesn't and I can't imagine any retail outlet charging you for buying something from them.
It's a scam.

On 'River City' the other night one character advised another not to wait for a lift but to take "THE TUBE." Hanging's too good for them.

Should they not have stopped making the 'Fast and Furious' films after Paul Walker died?
I realise he died during making of one so perhaps they felt they had to complete as a tribute to him.
