^^^ I think I do (but Wiki confirms that was the U.S. release). I'm not even a fan but I found a copy for cheap and it seemed unusual so I grabbed it, just in case. Am I rich yet?

The Battle of Towton fought on the 29th March 1461 during the English Wars of the Roses according to chroniclers, resulted in the loss of 28,000 lives.

It was a Palm Sunday and there was a snow storm raging.

I initially read that as The Battle of Toytown.

One of the members of belle and Sebastian wrote a musical that was on film4. It was rated the best accidental horror of the year.

Well you obviously haven't, or you would have changed years ago.

Linda Thompson's brother is Brian Pettigrew who is an actor. He was in most of Lindsay Anderson's films, the tv series Get Some In with Robert Lindsey, and various tv shows over the years.

I've sold him records years ago in Glasgow, and saw him recently in Marks and Spencers .

Americans are ridiculously clueless about St Paddy's day, yet they love it.

That New Zealand enjoys a rodeo

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2018/ ... ew-zealand


Man's capacity to enjoy treating animals like shit is really without borders, isn't it? You see it in Austin - otherwise seemingly pleasant looking families, lining up to show their children how animals can be utterly terrified and manhandled for fun. Whoopee!
Obscene.

When he’s not acting, he sells antiques. I was browsing his stall at an antique fair once when someone came up to him to compliment him on his performance on a TV show that had been broadcast the previous week. Pettifer was totally dismissive and unpleasant to the poor guy.
