i have just finished working my way through all five seasons of the utterly marvellous Boston Legal, and something has now gone out of my life because there will never be a new episode to sit down to in the evening. I think it may very well be my favourite tv show of all time. My Talisker that Hayley Campbell sent has also run out coincidentally at the same time. I have nothing to say here today.

Let me just clear out my drafts folder:

Brock Clarke on MURIEL SPARK AND THE CASE FOR RUTHLESS AUTHORIAL MANIPULATION
For another, it teaches us that, in writing such a self-conscious book, one must constantly make sure that the novel is leading us toward something beyond its own artifice.

In other news:
LONDON (Reuters) – Visitors to London always have to be on the look out for pickpockets, but now there's another, more positive phenomenon on the loose -- putpockets.
Aware that people are suffering in the economic crisis, 20 former pickpockets have turned over a new leaf and are now trawling London's tourist sites slipping money back into unsuspecting pockets.
Anything from 5 pounds to 20 pound notes is being surreptitiously deposited in unguarded pockets or open handbags in Trafalgar Square, Covent Garden and other busy spots.

There's even a little picture in this here drafts folder. I can no longer remember what i intended to do with it or even whether I've already posted it.


Which reminds me, I noticed recently there's now a band named The Eyeball Kid. I bet mine goes back before any of them were born.
Eyeball Kid is a powerhouse teen band that just won the 14th annual WBCN-Berklee College of Music Battle of the High School Bands competition, beating 100 others for the prize.(24 April 2008)

The bottom set of eyes on the picture remind me slightly of john howard.

Yes, Boston Legal was something extremely special. I didn't dig the last episode though. All those stars through out the years, and they couldn't find a way to have them all in the same room together. What were they thinking?

I still have the whole last season to watch, and I know I will miss it.
It actually surprises me it's your favorite show, I don't know many people who like it.

That putpocket story is completely surrealist. On a similar note, some people are leaving poems in public places...
