you've done it wrong :bang:

these threads are supposed to be the year and month you were born.
general practice it to use the first release date internationally

so for example september 1980 - Ordinary People
yes that really crap waste of time about a family that lose a son.

Apocalpse Now
The Life of Brian (pure class) (y)

Brian?s mother: He's not the Messiah. He's a very naughty boy!



Reg: All right, but apart from the sanitation, medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, the fresh water system and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?
Attendee: Brought peace?
Reg: Oh, peace - shut up!
Reg: There is not one of us who would not gladly suffer death to rid this country of the Romans once and for all.
Dissenter: Uh, well, one.
Reg: Oh, yeah, yeah, there's one. But otherwise, we're solid



[a line of prisoners files past a jailer]
Coordinator: Crucifixion?
Prisoner: Yes.
Coordinator: Good. Out of the door, line on the left, one cross each.
[Next prisoner]
Coordinator: Crucifixion?
Mr. Cheeky: Er, no, freedom actually.
Coordinator: What?
Mr. Cheeky: Yeah, they said I hadn't done anything and I could go and live on an island somewhere.
Coordinator: Oh I say, that's very nice. Well, off you go then.
Mr. Cheeky: No, I'm just pulling your leg, it's crucifixion really.
Coordinator: [laughing] Oh yes, very good. Well...
Mr. Cheeky: Yes I know, out of the door, one cross each, line on the left.

a film, a film, a film, a film etc.

then:

This Is Spinal Tap

:worship: :worship: :worship:

LEGEND of a film!

"Our amps go up to 11!"

"Why?"

"Well, it's 1 louder than 10 innit?"

"Why not just make 10 louder?"

*silence*



"Tell me. Are we going to do Stonehenge tonight?"

"No we're not fcuking going to do Stonehenge."



"We recorded the album in Dobly."

"Don't you mean Dolby?"

"No, it's definitely Dobly."


"That song is beautiful. What do you call it?"

"Lick my love pump."


"This guitar is amazing. It's never been played and it still has the price tag on it."

"Can I touch it?"

"Don't point at it. Don't even LOOK at it."



If you've ever been in a band Spinal Tap will make you howl with laughter and cry in shame. Because everything in the film is based on TRUE events in rock history!

I doubt if there were many Fiats in the UK when I was born Jug.;)
In fact there were very few cars of any description!
My dad had a Ford 8 that only saw service very occasionally, we also had a TV he bought in 1949 that didn't see much service due to BBC only airing programmes at certain times.

I was born 20 years before the first motorway was built and was among the first to use the M1 back then.:(
