I quite liked Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs. I've hated everything else he's directed though.

Even more bizarre than that is Blame It On The Boogie was written and originally sung by an English bloke called Mick Jackson. :lol:

I assume you mean the riff. The song itself was written by an American dude and Jackson.

Wanna see an HD video of a $3m watch being made? 10mins long, quite mesmerising though.

No, he was the principal composer of the song.

Yep, that's the guy. The one I had in mind was John Landis.

Macho Man Randy Savage is being inducted into the WWE hall of fame this year.

How the hell isn't he in the hall of fame already?

I would have assumed he'd been inducted years ago.

Wwe have wanted him in for years but he declined as he wanted to be inducted with his father and brother as the poffo family, after his death his brother stood by his wish but they have obviously come to an agreement now.

The postponed Chinese New Year fireworks at the university lake started with a bang and then a plop. I thought "that one's misfired"...but no...fucking FLOATING FIREWORKS. The things that had landed in the water produced flames that kept burning for several minutes, floating on the surface of the water.

They looked like the ones on the surface of the water in this photo...
