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.
