There are 23 entries for 'radically-themed art clothing' on the www. Alas - they are all references to this film. So, I fear, we will never get a non-circular account of what it means.

someone might have to *gasp* see the film and report back. any volunteers?

jb

heck, yes - I'm going to see it, if it ever makes it out here. I still need to find out what a cereal bar really is.

I just get the feeling of this film having a 'quirkiness' that recollects 'Heathers' and able to indulge my cereal fascination. Well, I am drawn in by your sale. And I have picked up this awareness of who Zooey is because I always confuse her with Anna Friel from 'Pushing Dassies'. She sticks out to me because years ago she was playing a teenage lesbian coming gout on a British soap opera. I thought Zooey and Anna were the same person until wikipedia capable peoples intervened to show me the inaccuracies of the richiepedia. Anyhoo, I am going to see that one right after my nostalgic viewing of '1941'.

Sainsbury's are selling *12 fruit & nut muesli* (1kg) at a reduced rate of £1.50 rather than the putatively customary £2.99.

Armed with this as I left the aisle, I was already starting to wonder if I could open a Cereal Bar myself.

On a non-cereal, non-radically-themed note, the dilapidated wheezer behind me in the checkout queue clasped only one item in his quivering withered digits: a bottle of 'basics' (economy) Spanish Red Wine. Unless he planned to feed it to his pet groundhog or partially tamed woodchuck, I feel that this is a very sound illustration of the phrase 'a false economy'.

  • If Ayn Rand and Walter Benjamin got in a cage fight and then made up over foie gras, single malt scotch and indie pop, you'd have the delightful adventures of "That Was Probably Awkward." Plus or minus the single malt and foie gras, depending on the week's finances. But always the indie pop. Sad, stirring indie pop. And a decent happy hour.
