For Pals who may not have tuned into Desmond's blog for a day or so, I heartily recommend it. Things seem set to take a nasty turn.

A cracking read full of villians and culinary geniuses.

and that's just your character, Arm!

Who do you want to play you in the film? I thought Joanne Lumley could take my part.

and if Pals haven't been reading The Thriller That Came in from No-Man's Land, get to it!! Des is churning it out like belts of well-aimed machine gun fire.

I have been informed that it is improbable/impossible that Malc's dogs would have found my limb attractive. I now publicly and categorically apologise to Malc's dogs.

Without prejudice.

Sacks rears its ugly head.

Your Honour I vote to dismiss this case on the grounds that said animals may well have found aforesaid limb attractive.

I withdraw that remark voluntarily. Daughter says aforementioned dogs are far too cute. Aaaaa

OK who is not hooked on Mr Blackadder's daily marvel? You've not yet tried it? Get in there NOW and savour the best serial suspense (suspenders? nurse, behave!) since Dick Barton, Special Agent.

The accompanying sub-plot supplied (from the depths of their twisted little minds, folks) by forum pals is a delight also.

You have been warned.

Your ghost-writer, the late Rifleman Clay

ps - a boost for the urbane delights of Master Nixon of Bangalore to follow.

the late Rifleman Clay

Thespian's Review

.....and this masterful new film, directed and produced by Christopher Baker, the bete-noir of British cinematography of the early 21st century, premiers at the Odeon, Halesowen on Friday.

The film centres around a small group of characters, played by entirely unknown performers. It is, however, packed to overflowing with cameo performances from stars of television, radio and the performing arts.

Worthy of particular mention is Jim Clay, a established star of contemporary dance, making his first appearance on the silver screen. He plays the eponymous rifleman whose death is so graphically portrayed in his only scene. The way he interprets the effects of the multiple shrapnel wounds hitting his torso, peeling away his uniform and revealing his tanned, but hairless chest, is almost pornographic. But not quite. He reminds one of a young Huge Grant and I am sure that in his next role, he will have lines to speak........

The film is loosely based on the book of the same name by Desmond Blackadder, who died tragically in 2008, before he could finish the second part of an intended trilogy "Return to Messines".

I must say, I resent the implication here that I didn't have lines in this production. But if you'd seen the script as it was presented to me! "Effin" this and "bleedin" that, and "b"s and "c"s all over the place. I mean, if dear old Mater had caught me uttering such profanity, well, I dread to think!

'Scuse me a mo, Mater's calling.

(What's that, Mama? Get orf that ****in' computer afore I shove the mouse up yer ****, yer ****in' little ******? Oh, alright you old ****!)

Sorry about that, chaps. Now where's that script for the Bernard Manning Story?

Actually Jim, I was really surprised by your foul language. I think that is why you were bumped-off, and in time for Hallowe'en too. Things must be very busy on your side of the spritual divide this time of year.

See you Monday.
