Got to pretty much agree. The songs I liked when it came out I still like...the ones I didn't, I still don't!

There's 4 songs on the whole album I can listen too all the way through and that's it.

FACEBOOK!!!!

What a pile of shit that is. And I'm still ashamed to have a FB account... Sad

But my reasons for signing up were not the usual 'sheep' ones and cetatinly not to follow a shite trend!!! At least I have that to fall back on!!

It's allowed the cretins of society to publish their own self indulgent thoughts. I know Andy Warhol said every one is famous for 15 minutes but surely there's an exception?

As for fuzzbonk I really don't care if 'sarah' is 'having a cup of tea' or has 'just popped to the loo'!!!!!!

Steven King films/TV shows...(other than Carrie)...what a pile of shite.

I assume his books are as bad but as I've never read one, nor wanted to, I can't comment!

The books (Like most things) are better than the TV adaptions.

I think so too. I have read a ton of SK books and i think he is really good. I think his stories are just too detailed to put into film other than ones like Misery which I thought was really good. Rose Red wasnt bad .

Carrie
Salem's Lot
The Shining
Silver Bullet
Stand By Me
Misery
The Shawshank Redemption
The Green Mile
Storm Of The Century (series)
Kingdom Hospital (series)

All worthy of a mention.
And I've read every Stephen King novel, short story and non fiction books. How can anyone state that he's over rated when they admit they haven't read a thing !!!!???? :break it:

Because I was reffering to the TVshows/movies! Not the books! The shows were, on the whole, bad enough to put me off reading anything by him is what I meant.

Though having said that I was not aware he did Green Mile, Shawshank & Misery... Embarassed

Unless I've him mixed up with someone else I was reffering to rubbish like 'Christine' (not you Chrissy!!!), 'Kujo', 'IT' & yes, even The Shining (TOTALLY overrated!!!) & Salems Lot. What a bunch of yawns that lot was!!!

Film adaptions of books are usually worse than the actual book due to the fact that there's usually a lot more going on in the book than can be conveyed in a 2 hour movie. The Harry Potter films are exceptionally guilty of this, often missing major plot points.

Very true, but I really think the adaptations of the books I mentioned are just pants!

I mean c'mon! A haunted car or whatever...puleeeazze!... Rolling Eyes

And IT was a pile of shite. A looney clown and some big spider or something! Seriously!? LOL!!!

But I must admit, I'd be interested in reading Misery and Shawshank.

The book is called Gerald's Game. Ironically not one of my favourites !! The Stand is by far and away my favourite and the recent 22.11.63 sees him back in form again after what, even I'll admit, was a bit of a dodgy period.

Ruth just read that. She would agree with your assessment.

I wonder if Adam likes books by Richard Bachman?

That's not what I said!!!!!

I am assuming thats a psuodonna na ana an nom (can't spell that word!) of Mr Kings?

I prefer the work by Brett Eston Ellis. American Psycho is outstanding and Less Than Zero I love. I really should go and check out his more recent work...
