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


Brian Pettifer surely? I saw him in the Odeon on Renfield Street once.

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.

Not the first unpleasant gash on this site ...

There's a brand new craze, apparently.

It's called "Trash The Obituary".

Yeah, rad, mmmmaaannn.
In other words an extended look into *******’s head, and it seems to have some pretty good things in it (who among us is totally free of mental garbage?) It’s nice to see that he is confident enough so he can play some blues again,I’d like to hear more.
