The beast is dead.

Jon Fat Beast has died. If you ever played at the Bull and Gate (or went to see Carter) then you'll know who I mean. Shame, the music scene needed more people like him not less. Or is it fewer? I really don't care.

And yes, he did look a bit like Kuato in Total Recall.

If you can count them, it's fewer.

Fewer characters=less interest.

Fewer strokes=less irritation.

I told you, I don't fucking care.

Apart from making a sentence ugly I've never seen a practical example where incorrect use leads to the wrong conclusion.

However, the Typeface / font argument is very much still alive in my world.

deep_stoat 8:27, reply

yes, but the incorrect conclusion argument legitimises the infer/imply brigade - because yes, of course we all know what they mean, even though they're wrong and lazy. And that woman who says Pacifically. And to all extents and purposes...

Were his lies

about the evidence that brought her to court, or was it his believability in general that was in question?

pink_oboe 8:10, reply

either way, there's certainly nothing unbelievable or unlikely about this:

"Mahmood got me and my team completely intoxicated and persuaded me to act the part of a bad, rough ghetto girl. They recorded this and produced this as evidence when I thought it was an audition."

Elaine Stritch deaded

I've posted this before, but I think its worth a reprise: While filming LWT's "Two's Company" in the late 1970's she negotiated as part of her contract that LWT paid for a suite at the Dorchester for her time in London, with a white Rolls Royce as her transport. The parties she used to host were famous for the Martinis that were being served - a healthy shot of gin and a butler would wander through the guests spraying vermouth through an old style atomiser in the general direction of the glasses.

Why would she need a suite at The Dorchester

when she and her husband John 'Muffin May' Bay lived at the Savoy from 1973 to 1982?

plasticflamingo 7:44, reply

Stritch and Bay married a section of her solo show dealt with the happiness of this union and lived in London at the Savoy hotel. Spotting the opportunities of this sojourn, LWT, whose headquarters was within walking distance of the Savoy, cannily came up with Two's Company.

Richard Griffiths threatened to smack her one

When they were filming that forgettable sitcom they did together. Richard Griffiths was constantly defending her erratic behaviour because she'd told him she was suffering from flu and was on antibiotics. His sympathy ended abruptly when the annoyed channel bosses entered her dressing room to find her passed out, surrounded by empty bottles. Griffiths then told her to sober up, which earned him a torrent of vile abuse, so he warned her that where he came from, the men smacked women about for that kind of talk. She was so taken aback that she shut up and started behaving herself.

mercyme 17:08, reply

She probably just abruptly sobered up when she smelled the fat shit...

Besides, it's Elaine Stritch: Crabby Bitch.
