Category : Writer's works mystic pieces

I have got this oldish London Telegraph article xerox'ed [like a million others] titled 'High time for a Southern's star to rise' by Ian Thomson on the biographica's [other writer's] without going to profile here is his site the guy is Terry Southern he did Magic Christian 1969 and some guy said.. This movie begins with one of my favorite songs, "Come and Get It", penned by Paul McCartney & performed by Badfinger. After that, all hell breaks loose (more or less) for the rest of the movie, and I'd be hard pressed to explain exactly what it's about, really. That doesn't mean I didn't enjoy it though, movies don't have to make sense to me to enjoy them. Peter Sellers plays an overly-rich man who adopts a bum (Ringo Starr) he finds feeding ducks in the park. He then apparently dissolves his business holdings, fires his employees, and he and his newly-adopted son just do whatever they want, as long as it either involves spending money or baiting people to see what they'll do for money. Has some rather amusing moments, one being a dog show that's being televised where some strange rare African breed of dog is being shown, turns out it's a black panther and eats all the little foo-foo dogs; I laughed out loud at that part, and my cat purred. Anyway, this is pretty well plotless, just one strange little escapade after another, and includes cameos by Graham Chapman and John Cleese of Monty Python's Flying Circus, and also Raquel Welch and Roman Polanski, not to mention Sir Laurence Harvey as Hamlet, who performs a strip-tease to the "To Be Or Not To Be" soliloquy, if that's the right term. !!!!! Oh, and let's not forget Christopher Lee, who plays a porter on the ship (what The Magic Christian is) who also happens to be a vampire. This is very busy and probably needs another watching to catch everything I may have missed the first time, but if you like stream-of-consciousness type stuff, give it a shot, it's a real hoot.

Category : China My Space Microsoft/Chinesse blog/readtherules

Link here to a censor thing by the software giant on a Chinaman known for a great voice.. Microsoft admits it pulled the plug on Zhao "Anti" Jing's blog, with the shameful but familiar excuse that it was only complying with local law. Where have we heard this before? Oh yeah. And as long as there's money to be made in China, we're likely to hear it again. and even more about goods you buy and what you agree to do with them..This FOOD PRODUCT has been manufactured for usage only in specific FOOD PRODUCT cooking devices and storage containers and might not be usable with the following devices:

Category : Gadgets camera Kodak P850

Canon Ixus v

For £310 [410USD] I don't beleive it.. It looks good Kodak's latest entry not really wide enough.. image stable could be useful for tele close-ups makes you take more off-the-cuff shots-maybe but with five megapixels it's time to take stock.
update It would appear that the stabilizer is only good for two stops..according to jessops man
