NBC - tower light


So, Nightmare Before Christmas has been re-re-released in 3D for a three-week period, and obviously, depsite there being FIVE wholly appropriate cinemas in Birmingham where it could be shown, none of them appear to be showing it. AGAIN. For FUCK's sake, we have an IMAX, a VUE, a Cineworld and an AMC cinema all within a few miles of each other - WHY are none of them showing it?

(Of course, even if Cineworld did show it, it would be on for a week, at 10.00am, and then never seen again... because Cineworld is teH suck.)

Clearly Birmingham is the wrong demographic.

The nearest Vue showing it is apparently in South Wirral. And, obviously, London, which is the centre of the universe.

I don't want to go all the way to London just for the privilege of seeing it, thank you. I would rather see it in the comfort of my own city, and more to the point, I can't afford to go to London to see it.

I hate the fact that the UK gets the short straw where anything remotely interesting is involved. And that Birmingham never seems to bloody well exist at times like this. HELLO? We're the second damned city - we're big enough to see. STOP PRETENDING WE DON'T EXIST.

GAH, things like this are frustrating. It makes me want to kill things.

Some links.

I have mellowed a bit now. Might go out for McDonalds for lunch. Comfort food, yes.

These are for herringprincess after our "Badger Badger" conversation yesterday, but everyone should look at them anyway. If you've never seen these amanzing internet phenomena, you're missing out...

1. The Llama Song. You will not be able to get this out of your head.

2. Weebl's Stuff.Com - the home of Weebl & Bob, but the flash cartoons on this bit of the site are legendary. My favourites are:

3. Patrick Moore

4. Scampi - this eats your brain.

5. The Salad Fingers Saga: Episode 1, Episode 2, Episode 3 , Episode 4 and Episode 5. Disturbing doesn't even begin to cover it, believe me.

And I just found this one.

6. Giraffe In My Loft.

But yeah, there are loads all worth investigating. Scampi loses all synch after about the 12th loop, it's great. :)
