I think more detailed discussion of Jaws 4 is in order, if exchanges like this keep on occurring:

Why does Michael Caine agree to do any movie???

I would have said in this case that he was probably coming down from the rush of making 'Blame it on Rio' and he really wanted to recapture that awesome feeling again.
It's before my time but I've been told, he never came back from Karangahape Road.

hmm, a lot of parallels there.

Freakishly so. Am supping a nice shiraz at the moment though. Mrs B is out for the evening - thus loud punk rock is annoying the heighbourhood.


:lol: somehow the phrases 'nice shiraz' and 'loud punk rock is annoying the neighbourhood' seem incongruous... like, in reverse, a classical music conductor would be injecting himself with heroin on stage while handling Beethoven's 'Pastorale'...


I can think of no more beautiful a piece of music to shoot smack to.

The Treasury is a depository for any of those little moments that have brought a smile to your face on other threads on this site and works best if one can casually peruse it at one's leisure without having to wade through (often not funny at all) discussion and inane chit-chat.

Could we just transfer things here and discuss them elsewhere, please?

Thanks in advance.

From the "Group Hug - The Remix" thread, T Berry Shuffle comes up with this classic:

T. Berry Shuffle wrote: I used to have a job in a steel refinery. At some point every night I would be aflame, physically. I used to think about that on my walk to work ‘I’ll be on fire sometime tonight’ and I wondered what in fuck I was doing in a job like that. One night I almost got killed during an accident. So I quit and left with a new perspective. And man let me tell you, no matter how bad things may get, they’re never as bad as being on fire.

Ah, too quick for me, old friend. I decided it wasn't as amusing as I first thought, so removed it. My readers would be disappointed to see my standards slip.


I can assure everyone that it was quite brilliant.


That's what he means. We expect his posts to be shit.
