Was going make my second trip down to the surface to get tech support for my iPhone, but now that Steve is here...

Unfortunately, getting through to tech support is literally taking eternity.

Twitter is a strange thing.

Nice tie-in with your signature as well then ;).

So has anyone watched something a little strange & really liked it then thought, 'There might be something wrong with me?'. :lol:

I really, really like The League Of Gentlemen series. Tubbs & Edward, Pauline & the 'special' stuff. Some of it's grotesque but it makes me laugh so much.

love it! That's like Tobias Funke on Arrested Developement. His 2 jobs of analyst and therapist combined on his business card, so funny.

Well, yeah. I wrote it with him in mind.

I love The League of Gentlemen. "Hello Dave? Is that Dave?"
I've lived for over 2000 years, and not all of them were good ones. I've made many mistakes. And it's about time I did something about that.

There's a start. Doesn't cover Mickey, Tubbs, or the Dentons, but then what would?
