human league 3PO satdi. or. are things being shit?? blog about it.

so i go out this mornin (2ish) my mission is to go to the local library at darnall to print some job applications then whack em in envolopes which are addressed and ready to go. then i'm off up handsworth to the post office to send off this velvet jacket which i've sold on ebay and packed this mornin (actual mornin) and to get stamps and post the letters! i'm conscious that its satdi so i go the post office website to check openin times, put in post code, theres my post office-open till 5. so i do the library bit then catch the bus to post office, its open so i go in (natyrally) and i'm sayin 'i need to post this' to the bloke and he's noddin his head. he says its closed, the post office bit is closed, its only open for 'lottry' so i'm like 'what, really? i've been on the post office website and it says 'OPEN'. 'well shows you how much use that is' he helpfully replies! so i make one of those exhaling of breath noises that signifies your annoyance and dissapointment. 'o'right well can i bye some stamps' i say, reaching for my wallet. he's nodding his head again. 'post office is closed, all that (indicates with arm movements) is closed. its just lottry.'
i've had enough now, 'bloody ell i can't even buy stamps?!'. so i go down to asda for stamps. what a bag of shite!! the post office is open but you can't actually post anything or do anything even mildly post officey! moan over!!

to get over this massive ordeal (sarcasm yes) i've been listening to sheffields finest 'HUMAN LEAGUE' and i discoved this-

check out 3PO throwing down some shapes!

and the human league as they naturally are-

Mr oakey in the open topped car is genius ha ha. by the way he only looked like that later on there career, for classic oakey-do some investafagating!! dunno what the film is, concentrate on the tune!!

i need another cup o'tea now.

Rest in Peace J. D. Salinger. You don't need me to tell you about his incredible and prolific work so i'll leave it at that.

That can of Lilt sure cheered me up, could be 6 months since i've had one! the only time i'm ever gonna enjoy grapefruit is when i'm drinkin that stuff (wether theres actual grapefruit in there or not......) i heartily look forward to my next can in 6 months time!!

why the HELL!!!! has this ''in the world of viagra'' popped up in my blogs i'm following feed??? SERIOUSLY!!?? i've never seen this blog, i've never used viagra nor ever needed to thankyou very much and why would i follow it on blogger even if i thought i might need it?? AND! there are no actual blogs there nor any information whatever! just the picture of some dousche called andrew in a suit! his profile doesnt have any blogs in it either, it says 4 profile views and i think 3 of them were from me tryin to figure this shit out!! its beyond me.....

thats it, except that morrissey is hillarious and i love him for it!

i want you all to know i'm feeling depressed. or. unpresidented levels of uncertainty

scientists have decided today 'sundi the 24th of january' is the most depressing day of the year. and have dubbed it 'blue monday' for fuck knows what reason frankly. what with the come down after christmas and the climate and unpresidented levels of uncertainty etc..... don't talk to me about uncertainty. prehaps ''the scientists'' should have been inventing something uselfull, like a form of self distributing grit or a cure for my bloody asthma ay!!! did they get paid for this for..... and anyway does anyone really need another reason to be told that they are depressed, i know i fucking don't!!! its sundi and i'm on my own as it is!! so thankyou very fucking much for that scientists!

(insert picture of marvin below)

i'm gonna av another cup of tea to solve this equation + a buiscuit even though its nearly tea time. this's what scientists have driven me to!

its the end of the world sundi, oh shit. or. sixty summat, who knows.

had me a post-appocalyptic type dream last night. s'true alright! i was with my dad and it was mid-way through the end of the world disaster. there was rumbling of the earth and darkening of the sky and poluting of the air and everythin really! we were trying to get some sort of survival pack/kit together so we could get the hell out. i'm not sure where we were gonna go but there was deffinately some sort of a plan. the thing was i taking like forever to get my shit together and really dithering, and boy was this really the worst time to be dithering!!
thats all i've got really i'm afraid....sorry! it was no 2012 i know, no arks or anything ha ha. no mel gibson or bruce willis. oh well. lifes like that i'm sorry to have to tell you!

i've just re'watched this-


its studio ghibli so already your pretty confident you will avoid dissapointment! and its all the way from 1984. and it is stunning yes, visually alone, the world it creates and the creatures within. it has all the messages about treating the world with some respepct and gratitude. you know, be a part of everything and work with nature because for god's sakes it knows what its doing!!! if theres a poisonous forest, don't burn it down, its there for a reason! and ofcourse don't be twats towards your fellow man even if they are from a foreign land and a bit different.
all that sort of stuff. nature and everything, brilliant.

anyway trust me its a beautiful, wonderfull film. and patrick stewarts in it!

62-no significance thursdi. or. strange blogger in a strange land.

do you ever get that 'feeling come sensation' where you see a shape, or shadow or movement out of the corner of your eye which dissapears when you turn to look directly at it?? i do.....all the bloody time! sometimes more oft than others. what do you reckon it is though, now thats the question i had in mind while conceiving this blog of which you are reading. is there some simple boring explanation (probably) like light reflection which dissapears when you turn your head because your perspective has shifted. or do we want to talk about somethin more interestin....well now that you mention it elrossiter mi owd mucker!

okay so is there some form of undiscovered exotic life that moves at unheard of speeds and is uber paranoid and wishes to remain out of the papers? perhaps. i mean 'we' discover new and crazier forms of life all the time don't we?? and besides in an infinite universe........ so these creatures watch and observe people (maybe other forms of life too) but when we notice them they shoot off. maybe

or maybe its the dead, ghosts or souls or somethin. that we can't perceive truly but only as a vague awareness which goes when we try to focus on it. because surely to observe these things truly would turn our minds inside out!

the most likely explanation is that its god fucking with us because he's nothing better to do with himself!! ha ha what do i know.....

this blog is being blogged to you from a theatre in that london town. i am not here to take in any wonderful dramatic dancing or interprative crazyness, but because the mrs works here and i am accompanying her while 'jobhunting etc' nothing else obviously. apart from some groovy sounds courtesy of think we might grab a pint afterwards-which'll suit me just spiffingly sir!!

after all these months, its mental dream time folks! or. today must be a thursday. . . .

yes its true! after all these months of normal(ish) and boring dreams, a mental has been dreampt. and a dark and horrible one at that, not at all fun at the time i have to say.

so. it was all about me, my mrs and 'avatar' the location wasn't anywhere inparticular and i'm upset to say that much of the dream has slipped from my mindbox! so yeah it was me and the mrs, but i was calling her 'avatar' its not like she was blue and 15 feet tall or anything but i think she may have looked a bit different. the dream was focused around what i'm going to call an object. it was sort of a frame basically and big enough to comfortably stand under. it didnt have any sides so you could see the person within, though the mrs was the only person i saw go into the thing! and go into it she did several times. now what happened inside it was this-there were some wire, tubuell, organic tendril like thingamabobs hanging down, much like some of the 'tendril' thingamabobs from avatar, the bits that are tucked into the beings tails that emerge and are used to connect with the various beasties that they use for transport. the connecting of these tendrils creates a bond which is basically a link between the two 'beings'.
so there are these tendrils in this object and they connect (link) with the person that enters, they attach to the head area, it was kinda hazey and i think maybe they actually connect straight into the persons mind or soul! so the mrs did this several times, it had an ennormous effect on her and physically appeared to be giving her some sort of high, it was like it took her to another place entirely, i mean like it was enlightening her or raising her soul to another level or plane or some such! and its effects increased the more she used it.

the last time she used it killed her, sort of. well her body remained but like there was nothing in it. i think she achieved some sort of ascension or her soul went off some where, that kind of thing ya know. so ofcourse i was pretty devastated and spent the rest of the dream simply being devastated and distraught in varying locations.
cheery or what?? but don't you go worrying folks, for i have spoken with and indeed physically seen (via that skype) the mrs this very day and she is well and experienced no such ascension shennanigans whatsoever!

so that was that.

i'm excited about iron man 2 and the next 'dresden files' book-'changes'. both out in april!! anyone else excited??

double whammy anniversary festo tuesday! or 60 and 365

hello there!

i'm kinda rusty at this as its been thirteen weeks and a day since my last blog and i'm sincerely sorry guys and girls!! but i'll just ramble a bit and then post, typical elrossiter style yo.

ITS NOT A WIND-UP LOVE, I REALLY THINK LIKE THIS IS A YEAR OLD TODAY!!! cue fanfare, screaming women and victoria sponge. and its my sixtieth post, cue mild whoops and maybe a single high five then getting on with our lives. hence double whammy anniversary festo-though to be honest i'm sure there has to be some sort of 'happening' or 'event spectacularrrr' or shennanigan tomfoolery of some sort so this is probably false advertising but hey-SHIT happens!
so how'm i celebrating this momentous occasion i hear you holler. well now just calm yourselves down an i shall kindly tell you. to celebrate i am drinking a cammomile tea and listening to echo and the bunnymen....but before you despair and jump to the conclusion that ole elrossiter has gone soft on you just hold your horses yeah!! for i have been coach travelling from that london and been (a bit) ill so there you go. i have been having many a late night in that london though and having good times so don't write me off!

god i'm so easily distracted at the moment and i don't even know who i'm talking to hear really. an actual real person may read it at some point but i don't know what i'm expecting. i suppose i'm just writing to myself really, i don't fuckin know, i just enjoy throwing down random thoughts and clearing my mind a bit. if you don't like it you won't read it will you?? so nought ventured, nought gained!

some contemporary entertainment for you-

saw this last night, it was actually really really good and i recommend it! like many people i was of the oppinion that sherlock holmes and doctor watson runnin around, swearing and being a bit uncouth was not what it should be about! but having seen it i have to say it that it pretty much works. it makes sense for them to have such skills and would seem to be a nessesity given the time period. though i think the whole 'cage fight' type thing with holmes 'was' too much and quite unnessasary really.
but anyway the writing was great, the story great, sets great, cast was brilliant, relationships between characters entirely believable and realistic and the set-up for more films was done nicely too!
GREAT FILM-go see!!

just finished reading this.
very briefly-it was alright.

things i didnt like-a few of the things he did with the characters, the sections without anyone of the existing HH characters-what was the point, didnt really conclude the series or bring any particular closure or 'oh, thats alright then' sort of feelings which i'd thought was kindof the point-that he was finishing it off.

things i did like-he pretty much got the characters right and i believed his writing of them, his style was 'though obviously not exact' close enough to douglas' that it worked and it was easily accepted, some good moments that made me laugh, that he didnt do anything 'too' horrific or unaceptable with any of the characters and didnt bring marvin back, a couple of nice douglas adams ref's that you would have missed if you didnt no much about the great man.

my main problem was that eoin didnt make that much use of this incredible opportunity, douglas was always commenting on society's nonsensical ways, on technology, religion, politics, and so many things-now mostly harmless was released in 1992, thats nearly 18 years ago, how was has happened since then that doulglas would have been picking up on??? lots basically and eoin didnt really seem to give it much thought. so in that respect 'and another thing' was fairly dissapointing, like i finished it and i was just like 'oh. right. okay then'.
well i dunno, i'm sure there are many other people who havent been nearly as kind or fair when reviewing this book and i have tried to be at least objective. it didnt grocely offend me so i'm thankfull for that!! any oppions??

well now i'm listening to billy bragg ha ha ha so heres to another year of I,N,A,W,U,L,I,R,T,L,T, thanking you muchly if you've ever glanced at this blog, obviously mistaking it for something else them hastilly scrambling elsewhere.

well two out of three were contemporary so i'll count that as a win!

look after yourselves
