Odds and ends...





The above clip is from the Kinski remake of Nosferatu the Vampyr, which naturally takes me to smeargate and unfounded rumours about Tory MPs. The splendidly named Nadine Dorries is threatening to sue over some allegation she did something or the other. The allegation is of course completely untrue. Here is the terrible truth: Dorries is 'tasked' (another loathsome neologism that ought to be banned) by Conservative Central Office with obtaining the blood of virgins to be fed to Thatcher to preserve her (Thatcher, that is and not Dorries) in her un-dead status. There was one unpleasant incident when Dorries, finding herself a bit stuck on the virgin front (the permissive society etc) offered Thatcher, by then in the advanced stages of blood withdrawal, Ann Widdecombe who though technically qualifying was not to Thatcher's liking at all. Thatcher attacked Dorries and inflicted nasty throat wounds. Since then Dorries has been careful with her choice of victim. In fact the above clip is not a re-make of Nosferatu the Vampyr at all but Dorries doing the rounds. Honest.



Random fact the rabbit didn't know until last week - Procul Harum (a popular beat combo from the rabbit's youth) was named after someone's cat.



Least surprising headline of the week: something to the effect that the Israeli Defence Forces had investigated themselves as regards any human rights abuses/war crimes while dishing out the Guernica treatment to the hapless population of Gaza. Having investigated itself, it concluded there weren't any. Well there's a surprise. Yeah. Right. Sure...



For the sake of completeness, following the comments of HHJ Gledhill (see last posting on HCA's) the relevant firm - Bullivant and Partners - have bitten back (oh dear, a lot of biting in this post) with a response http://www.wikicrimeline.co.uk/images/c/c9/Hcaresponse.pdf


Allegedly the Judge said 'solicitor' in a funny tone of voice or something - allegedly...




Picasso's Guernica in case anyone didn't know...

Speaking of Kinski (kinda), Gia and I watched Werner Herzog's documentary about Kinski called "My Best Fiend".

Kinski was all kinds of crazy. I mean, he never worked in a bear suit like his daughter, but crazy nonetheless.

I wonder if forensic would pick up on the fact that any blood spatter from the Tory camp would be self inflicted?

They are forever shooting themselves in the foot.

The defence of the criticised solicitors would have been more impressive if they hadn't begun it by showing that they do not understand the meaning of the word "refute".

This man is responsible for my rat phobia!
But it seems he had a more gentle side to him too (well hidden i suppose)

Quote Klaus Kinski
Sometimes my heart hurts so much, I beat it with my fists. I try to run. But you cannot run from this. It waits for you. Even when you think you have escaped it, it is there.
