If you have a bit of trouble with it Tony can be quite helpful :D

Ponder, go to the top of the page and you'll see something called "User Control Panel" - that's where you can add such things :)

That would be a shame,particularly the previous adaptation(better film IMAO,although i did quite like the one with Johny Depp too) :

Also got to admire Thompson's taking things in his own hand at the end,a wussy he was not... ;)

OK, if can get my hands on a copy of Where The Buffalo Roam I'd give that a go. Didn't know that movie existed.

I've changed my signature a while back. Wouldn't dream of dropping my avatar, though (partly because I fear Dotsie's handbag :shock:, but also because it expresses exactly how I often feel).
It was a line of the song Deggial by Therion before and is now the chorus of another song I'm quite fond of:
Skyclad - On with their heads


Lyricswise Skyclad is my favourite band. They're using lots of puns and other word plays. One of my favourite lines (from another song, though) is:
The effects of your affection stay the cause of all my troubles.
On with their heads! I'm the clown prince of fools
if you don't get the joke it's your loss
Love and laughter you see are the new currency
'cause greed's coinage is not worth a toss

Exile yourself to the unforgiving continent of Wraeclast!

You are right to fear the handbag! :lol: Sometimes its power frightens even me... :shifty:

I've made the decision to change my avatar again. I don't think he needs any introduction, but he represents my state of mind at the moment.

My avatar is a concept drawing for the video game DeathSpank, by the creator of the Monkey Island series, Ron Gilbert. I've been using it ever since I first saw it. It's colourful and daft and there are hardly any DeathSpank avatars being used out there, so I'm not being the umpteenth using one on any forum, like with the Patrick Troughton avatar I use on one or two other forums.

Oh, and the signature is from Frank Herbert's "Dune", which is easily one of the most quotable books I have ever read, and is filled with little tidbits of wisdom like this.

My signature is from Witches Abroad, and stuck in my mind so firmly that it had no choice but to be hijacked. :D

My name is self explanatory... One day I will get my old computer going again and perhaps Tina aka SusanStoHelit shall return.
