    Reasons to love Hitchcock

    1. In 'Psycho', where the guy is creeping up the stairs to check out the mother's bedroom, and the camera switches to an overhead view and then - out of nowhere - she rushes out knife in hand. ***** me up just thinking about it. 2. For that amazing shot in 'Frenzy' where you realise that the...

    A Pig 36 Hours

    We all get them, we all have those days when you wish you could turn back the clock and stay in bed but where would be the fun in that. I knew it was coming because I had prior warning that there was no cover for sunday night and I had already been asked to help out. Not a major problem, I...

    Kids Just Don't Know Their Born

    While having a wonder around the shop today it suddenly struck me just how little kids know of the real world and what they are missing out on. It started when my missus mentioned our niece and how it must cost her mum a fortune so she can wear all the clobber and make-up yet she hasn't two...
  5. Indoor aerials

    I have just bought a 22" HD tv for my room but I haven't got anyway of connecting it to the aerial outside or the Virgin box downstairs. Is it possible to buy a digital indoor aerial and connect it to a freeview box? Has anyone tried this and what was the result?

    Stacking it in public

    This morning I had the misfortune to trip/fall over whilst descending the stairs at a busy London train station. I managed to recover pretty quickly, was straight back on my feet pretended nothing had happened. Although this was not the most embarassing event in my life (which is probably...

    Okay, just fell down the stairs, slipped and now my ankle is really hurting. I've done my ankle 3 times before but i'm not sure if i should be worried, it looks a little red. Any signs i should look out for, i.e by when should it swell up if it is broken? Should i seek solace with Laurent?

  10. How Do You Solve A Problem Like KP?

    All summer it's been obvious something hasn't been right with Kevin Pietersen. In so much pain he couldn't walk down the stairs throughout the Twenty20 World Cup and pumped so full of cortisone he'd be oblivious to a gunshot wound during the first two tests, the news that Pietersen requires...
  11. Is James Walker Still Alive?

    Following on from the news that he "won't be risked" for the two warm-up games this weekend, as well as the fact I didn't see him from February onwards, I've come to the conclusion that James Walker has in fact died and Southend are playing their part in probably the greatest cover-up ever. My...

    Question Your experiences of taking the other half to the football...

    I was talking to my boss today who failed to convince his wife to come with him and watch the Chelsea vs Liverpool CL match last night, as she thought it'd be a 'dull game'. But it reminded me of my own experiences when trying to convince the better half of what makes going to the football so...

    Wembley: A Nation(al Stadium) divided?

    As a stadium, I still feel entirely undecided about Wembley. It's most impressive outside, lit up at night - a glowing beacon calling sports fans to its central hub. And it's a very slick operation, delivering colossal volumes of food and drink at breakneck speed, being very sensibly laid out...

    Chapter Six - South Of The ShrimperZone? At This Time Of Night? Ricey edged away from Stokes, carefully keeping his eyes shielded from the Red Tube. As tempting as it was to allow himself to wallow in the intense glow of some very, very naughty thoughts, he knew from...well...erm, first hand...

    Limehouse DLR stairs of death.

    It would appear that the temporary steps at Limehouse DLR station have been erected by the same company who erect concert seating at Pink Floyd concerts. I genuinely feared for my life last night. The whole thing looks like it is made from Meccano and each step flexes when you step on it. Every...
