There Are 2 Gaps in Your Knowledge

Where you don't have gaps in your knowledge:






Bugger, the two areas I thought I'd do reasonably well in:
almostwitty: (evil)
Me and Ewan McGregor in Rogue Trader In the late 1990s, inbetween freelance web jobs, I spent a day as an extra, being a Singaporean stock trader in the film Rogue Trader, a film about how stocktrader Nick Leeson managed to bring down the United Kingdom's oldest investment bank. The film starred Ewan McGregor and Anna Friel.

Alas, any glamorous notions I had about finally being part of the film industry were somewhat thwarted by the sheer tedium of waiting around on film sets waiting for filming to start, with nothing to do except talk to equally disillusioned Chinese extras, who were mostly Filipino actors/actresses who'd come to London with dreams of treading the stage or doing some good acting, as opposed to ending up with a bunch of extras. Although I did manage to walk around the Pinewood Studios shop and buy a jacket.

After one day of work, being on/off set for about 10 hours and wasting three hours being shuttled between central London and Pinewood for £80 (and they were very keen to get people back for more extras shooting, but I'd rather sit in front of a computer pumping out webcode!), the net result is the picture you see. If you watch the film itself, I'm about 40 minutes into the film, just after Nick Leeson is celebrating Christmas with his girlfriend (Friel).

The only other time I saw it was when slightly drunk and waiting in eager anticipation to see The Matrix. One of the trailers that featured before it was for Rogue Trader, and I yelped in surprise when I saw a strangely familiar moon-shaped face staring at me on the screen before I realised it was me.

I kept meaning to track down the DVD but then to my surprise, when I stumbled in after a hard day at a works do summer party (football, softball, Pimms, quizzes and the odd bit of chat) to find the film showing on ITV4. And finally, I manage to capture my moment of fame alongside Ewan McGregor.

To come ... how I had dinner with Frank Skinner and was in Stephen Fry's bedroom...

While randomly surfing (as yer do), I stumbled upon a website with an attractive photo of a smiling chirpy redheaded woman and thought she was stunningly attractive etc.

Except, upon looking at the rest of the page, I find:

a. She died a year ago in a terrible train accident
b. She's thirteen.

btw, the site is basically her memorial, and asks people to write her name - "Charlie" - wherever they are in the world in memory of her. If you'd like to do that sort of thing.

This reminds me of the time at a friend's wedding when one of the bride's party - a woman in a red dress - kept smiling at me throughout the day, and I thought my luck was almost in. I failed to notice that she was never kept alone at the wedding - she was being constantly chaperoned by a lot of people - and she was smiling at other people too. It only dawned on me later on that the smile was of the mentally-disabled kind, and she had the mental age of a young girl. Oh dear.

Typed in the word "fishing" in an email, and spent two seconds musing on the similarity of the word to "fisting".

Then again, I had just read the most ridiculous piece of sanctomonious journalism from BBC News, regarding a "perverted" man who was into really kinky knife-play. Admittedly, he goaded his then-lover into killing his wife - which is horribly evil and wrong, no two ways about it.

But surely if a man and a woman consent to sexual activities involving knives, it's up to those two and no matter how weird or strange we find it and how much we'd never want to do that sort of thing, it's not up to society or a BBC journalist to judge them for doing something they want to do, is it?

And in other news, I worry for the sexuality state of American fraternities of today when they complain about a masturbating woman on their couch.

Damn it, really must do better. Somehow. A bit late for that methinks though!
