18 related anecdote no. 31

Update on Inside (2007).

As you may recall (actually, fuck it – you’ve got no bloody excuse BUT to recall, here) I recently purchased Inside.  It’s a French horror movie that’s supposedly really violent and it’s also –

YOU HAD ME AT VIOLENT.

I’ve had it for a while now and haven’t watched it yet.  There are two main reasons:

It is subtitled – I cannot watch subtitled films when I am hungover and I’m always hungover because I’m always going out, drinking Moet and pulling loads of supermodels.

It is supposed to be really scary – Every time that I’ve had a chance to watch it has been in the day and every time I’ve thought the same thing – “Scary films are scarier at night, better wait until it gets dark.”  Only I fall asleep at five every evening because I’ve been drinking Moet and when I wake up I’m too hungover to watch a subtitled film.

I can see this going on for a while but I’ll keep you posted.

18 related anecdote no. 25

Last weekend I ran about in the snow with my boxers pulled up into a thong for an extended period – such is the life of a relentless attention seeker.  However, I am now paying for that because I am ill.

But all is not lost.

Being ill can be a good thing, because it means I have an excuse to stay indoors and watch lots of 18s.  This has been something of a tradition – every time I am ill, an 18 will make me feel better.  Luckily, I have just received The Tournament and Inside – who needs medicine when you’ve got 18s eh?

The only downside is that I’m more prone to nightmares when I’m ill.  Although it probably doesn’t help that I watch the movies immediately before bed with Clockwork Orange style clamps holding my eyes open, before eating a whole block of cheese and then putting on repeat a CD of Vincent Price relentlessly repeating “Alligators are going to eat you” at full volume.
