    50% English 50% American but 100% British.

    Ah I forgot about Paddington Bear from deepest Peru.

    Never liked Fair isle sweaters.

    Nice to see Tom Baker as Dr Who and the Daleks in there.

    I figured he still counted. He's quite proud of his adopted homeland.

    You can probably tell my tastes were shaped from a young age.

    I would have included Caine, but you'd stolen that one already.

    A mix of obsession with the past and a creative outlook on the future...

    This sums it up.

    I just love that kind of misanthropic, acerbic humor; it makes me laugh and feel good.

    yey my first post!

    I love Black Adder and Withnail and I [​IMG]

    It's sad that HP sauce is made in France now, thats why my Uncle wouldn't buy it (xenophobia is a great British institution)

    But unfortunately no one could ever dress like anything you gents in the US think make British style. I nearly got into a fight in the town where i live because i didn't wear socks with my loafers one day. Random people got together to chant 'fagot' and 'dick' at me! (and I'm neither a fagot OR a dick! haha)

    Now this sums up British style where i live (north east England)

    I thought about throwing in some tracksuits to balance things out, but figured eh, no need to let reality intrude.

    Oops.


    Great player ...

    Now a shadow of himself ravaged by alcohol ,drugs and mental illness...

    When he did play in Italy, Lazio i think ,he shat in the bath when they won the Italian championship or cup...

    His teammates didn't speak to him for months..
