Something for the Weakened

The Sunday Notice

September 27th, 2009 by

Morning kids. I don’t have much to plug this week and a fair amount to get done today, so will keep this brief. The Contact link above still does not work. Thanks very much to irregular correspondent Dark Satanic Mills who gave me some advice as to how to resurrect my Orange (wankers) account, but that wanted to change more settings on my computer than I’m entirely comfortable with. I’m happy to let the account die and not put any more of my pennies into their horribly stained, Orangey pockets. Anyone wishing to make contact can still do so by emailling theweakened at gmail dot com. You could try petitioning Rob (Uber) to fix it, but I doubt that’ll make much difference. Right, I’m also healthy again, so best go fuck shit up. Service will resume. Normally.

Very Short Story for the Weakened

September 26th, 2009 by

An hour without a cigarette. Doesn’t sound like long does it? You can quell that urge with so many things. Alcohol. Gum. Fiddling. Cigars don’t really count. You’d think writing would help channel the frustration, but sadly no. Especially writing about smoking. That only serves to bring one’s addiction into sharper focus. I should stop really, but I can’t help myself. Looking up I just noticed that someone has dropped a filter on the floor opposite me. That’s just cruel. Its sitting there, taunting me. Its not like I don’t spend hours not smoking during an average day. I’m not chaining it from dawn to dusk. Its two things that are vexing me; the fact that I have a pint in front of me and the two are a perfect accompaniment to one another (with the addition of some dry roasted its a near perfect combination) and the fact that I’m not allowed one. Its that I’m being told what to do by ‘Da Man’ that really pushes the craving along. Damn dat man. Maybe I’ll give that filter a suck. What harm could it do?

Lurgy persists. This is what the interior of my head sounds like at the minute.

I am filling up with lurgy. There’s not much else to say. Here, have some Broadcast.

The Actor Below (in that reading that post first will make this one actually make sense. Do I have to spell it out to you?)

I’ve now watched it. Its not hilarious, but there are worse ways to while away a minute and a half.

The Actor

September 21st, 2009 by

Thanks to my computer’s painfully slow internet connection, I’ve been unable to watch the video below yet. As such, I can’t vouch for its greatness and am mainly slinging it up here in an attempt to see it myself. I will however state that its new comedy featuring The Actor Kevin Eldon and thereby liable to be pretty great. Enjoy. I hope too.

Try mouthing the phrase “There’s a woman in the mirror in a fiery state” as fast as you can, without making any sounds. Oddly pleasing, isn’t it.
