    Happy Birthday, Fujisan!

    If you've watched and enjoyed a TV series called the Sopranos as i have, you'd know that at 55, in the Mafia they'd still say you were just a kid I'm heading toward my mid 40's myself, and to be honest with you i sort of stopped worrying about becoming old, i've accepted i'm no longer young and suddenly it's not so bad, as with many things in life, worry magnifies and amplifies, when in truth we could often do without it. You're a spring-chicken mate, and don't you forget it

    Happy Birthday Fujisan! Hope you have a great one
  3. I hadn't see that one Jakusotsu, very good There is one last UK comedy i had forgotten to mention but it's so obscure i honestly don't think anyone will have heard of it, it was called 'Garth Marenghi's Darkplace hospital', just six episodes but i loved each one, it was a parody of those 1980's detective shows that were ten a penny and all over the place back then.
  4. Well i feel compelled to do this now, it's your fault Swami The two Ronnies at their best: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CNTM9iM1eVw
  5. Yes i can definitely understand that, that's very likely the correct reaction to have to him. What did you think of 'The League of Gentlemen'? I forgot to mention those but they are also kind of rough, i must admit i died of laughter watching them as well though. Out of the secondary list you've made there, i think perhaps Porridge and 'Open all hours' would be my favourites, Ronnie Barker was extremely talented. I forgot to mention Tommy Cooper, also (i felt) very amusing.
  6. Of the British comedies i have fond memories of 'Only fools and horses', a lot of the Monty Python stuff and also one from around 20 years ago called 'Spaced'. For me personally, i don't really know what sort of humour is currently popular since around that time, because due to my change from Television to the internet, i haven't really been keeping tabs on the nation's funny bone, so to speak. What i can say is that on the odd occasion i have recently heard comedians on the radio, on the BBC channels, i must confess the canned laughter did not help in making me smile. Perhaps i'm just getting old, i'm not sure :) (Then again maybe it's my mind that is broken, since the only stand-up comedian that makes me belly-laugh is Frankie Boyle, and a lot of people find him vulgar in the extreme).
  7. I....don't......BElIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIEVE IT!!!!!
  8. I know Rambalac, he's really good, just walks without saying anything and you almost feel like you're there yourself. For a few years now i've had fluctuating mobility issues, so i can't go far and channels like his gave me some feeling of freedom back again. It helps he has the stamina of an ox as well, he can really get around when he wants to He does the occasional drone video too i believe.
  9. I remember an amusing documentary about a guy who was addicted to following storms around, it was about his travels and the opinions on the matter of his long-suffering wife, in fact, here it is! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tgGVD5YdFy0 I'm going have to check out Peking operas for myself, i've never heard of them but they sound interesting. I'm checking these out as we speak, had never heard of this either. thanks guys, you've all given me some great ideas :)
  10. I'm going through a weird mood where i can't concentrate on reading for some reason, so i'm finding myself on Youtube more often. (I'd say it was old age creeping up on me, but older people acquire more patience as they go and not less, do they not?) So far i've been indulging in random book reviews of works i've shamefully guessed i won't ever get around to actually reading, some sleep-aids in the form of gentle rain, the lapping of waves or 12-hours of nails across a chalk board, and some paranormal podcasts. I can't say i'm a 'believer' particularly but i do find many of the stories and conversations to be entertaining, and sometimes even of interest from a historical/cultural perspective. So, i'm curious as to what you guys spend your Youtube leisure time on, some links would be excellent as i'm always looking to expand my to-watch list! :)

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lDrZQiS1dnk A remix of a game-track from a computer game, it's not the full song unfortunately, but an abridged version (if that term can be applied to a song)

    Have a go at a Haiku!

    New Reality Tv Show: Celebrity Sumo!

    Unless my memory is shot to bits (which is very possible), i think my first ever introduction to Sumo was on channel 4 back in the early 90's. It was just highlights but still awesome, my father and i used to watch Chiyonofuji (who we only knew as 'the wolf' thanks to the commentator) and many others, it was a huge fun partly because we had never seen anything like it before. Makes me kind of sad that this 'celebrity' version is what the kids will see in this decade.

    Favorite Songs

    Anyone like computer game music? This one has a bit of an 'Omen' vibe to it. You know regarding Spinal Tap's 'big bottom' track, the doubly hilarious thing about it is that it's actually a great song too :D
