Of all the animals of prey, man is the only sociable one.
Every one of us preys upon his neighbour, and yet we herd together.

Wake me up when it's over...


  1. WAKE UP IT'S OVER..........

    just kidding.

  2. You mean you are not interested in whether our Wayne's metatarsal will be up to it or his hair transplant will last in the hot conditions? If you try it on screen with some Stockhausen or Birtwhistle on sound it is eerily an experience for our times.

  3. AKH, a cruel trick - though actually I'm so busy at present that I haven't a clue what's on television anyway.

    I did, however catch enough footage of Rooney to wonder why on earth he spent all that money on a hair transplant only to have it tonsured into a sort of cranial cow-pat.

    I hadn't thought to try it to the accompaniment of Birtwhistle; it might provide to be a therapeutic antidote to the incoherent rage that seizes me whenever football is dished up on TV with bleeding chunks of Puccini or Handel.

    JH - if all this si so soporific, what will happen when we get to Wimbledon and the Olympics?
