The Marx brothers.
Youtube. For all its faults almost whatever you look up however obscure is there.
Woody Allen's early films. Pre Annie Hall.They're hilarious.
The music of Kate Bush circa 1978-85.
Chocolate.
Humphrey Bogart's best films.
Seinfeld. Seasons 3-8.
The first taste of a freezing cold coca cola when you're very thirsty on a hot day.

There are some fine suggestions there. I think Woody's great films didn't stop at Annie Hall, itself a fine film. I loved 'Manhattan', 'Purple Rose of Cairo'  and 'Scenes From a Mall', the last one in particular.



Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.

I agree, PM. He did a lot of great films including and after that, but none of them were as out and out funny as the early ones. I think that's why he put that scene in Stardust Memories where the guy says to him "I preferred your earlier funny films." He definitely, I'd say had that encounter more than once in real life. As great as some of his later ones were none were as hilarious as 'Bananas' 'Love And Death' 'Sleeper' 'Play It again, Sam' and 'Take The Money And Run'.

Barr's - the company that makes Irn-Bru - still make cream soda. Most newsagents and supermarkets in the West of Scotland stock it if your ever interested in trying a can.

On the subject of people and things that make life better I greatly enjoyed the Dave Allen highlights and documentary last night. What a wonderfully funny man and a great storyteller, suave as hell too. A great Irishman Clap

Lots of small newsagents across the south of England still stock the full Barr's range. There seems to be a correlation between them stocking porn magazines and having a full range of soft drinks. I suppose it is thirsty work, especially if you haven't found the internet. Those magazines may be making a comeback though!

So you could call them soft-porn shops?

Speaking of these types of shops in England, who buys porn anymore??  Magazines are dead.  Even Eason's have a small magazine section now.  I'd be surprised if Eason's survive the next decade.

AFAIK Easons still have the agency for distributing English newspapers in Ireland.

If the proposed new laws come into force here a lot more people will be having a hidden stash of magazines.

If you've a can in the fridge, put it in the freezer for about 25 minutes. You want to get it until *just* before it starts to get even a bit slushy. I find about 20 minutes is grand, over 30 is risky. 25 is usually good.
