golll! I'd always assumed that it was about Shumista Brahm (sp?) who
wrote "Lost at Sea" but obviously not.... justr shows that I should get
out more.

Well, no. But there's a bit of a lynchy thing going on isn't there?
Samples from "Blue Velvet" ('He is a sick and dangerous man' is that
Burglar of Love?) and so on.

Now you've got WFTLB, I'd be interested to hear what you / others think
about President Chang. I've said it before (but that never stops me) but
I thought it was a pretty droopy limp song on the album, but live it
*rocked*. I think it's great now. Do other people like it or am I alone
in my Road-to-Damascus-type conversion re:president chang?

> How come no one ever talks about "Nothing Special"?

because it's perfect, there's nothing else to say about it. No, really,
it is. but that bit about neighbours jumping from a thirteenth storey
window puzzles me. I'm *sure* that's a reference to something else but
I'm damned if I can remember what it was. Any ideas, anyone?

Oh... which reminds me of the _most obvious_ reference of all: Lot 49.

> yes. but can you name the movie? :-)

16:29 to 17:42... you didn't give us much time to send our entries in,
didya? Never seen Betty Blue but everyone tells me I should... now
you're all doing it to. Is there no rest until I see it? Why am I
always doing something else when it's on at the cinema? Is this

more to follow.
