  1. I'm not big into horror movies at all and the only foreign language movies I watch tend to be French, as I speak a schoolboy version. I was just pleasantly surprised that when I stumbled upon it one night, it held my interest. I particulary liked the actors who played the Father and Grandfather.
  2. One of the best movies I've seen recently, is a South Korean monster pic called "The Host". Wonderfully acted and excellent special effects for a low budget. Pathos in all the right places too. Well worth watching the UK release trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hJnq9sm4Zxk
  3. QUOTE (Jack Aubrey @ May 21 2008, 12:52 PM) QUOTE (JayGeeEmme @ May 21 2008, 08:15 AM) It sounds crazy, but it was not unusual, in-fact quite common, at that time for Scots to speak with a French accent. Both countries were strong allies; "the auld alliance or entente cordial". To this day, a lot of French origin words are used in Scotland. Where I am from originally, Edinburgh, a lot of street names are French derivatives. Most famously, Mary Queen Of Scots was also Queen Of France and reportedly spoke her "native language" of French in both Courts - her Mother was also French and of course Charles Edward Stuart, aka Bonnie Prince Charlie, didn't speak English at all, French primarily then Italian and Latin. Gaelic was the native tongue (which can be traced to Northern France also). English was not the language of choice for a Scotsman . Sorry, history lesson over. I know all that but I maintain that your average Scottish clansman would've had a deep brogue. Can't comment, I only have a slight brogue.

  5. Some wonderful metal here. I'm a big fan of American cars from the 50's, 60's and 70's - I hope to buy a '63 Corvette, preferably one of Mr Coddington's. I hate 80's onwards. In my opinion, purely personal, European took over in design, quality and handling. I have an addiction to 911's. I've had five so far: 2 x Carrera, Turbo, GT3 (all 996 variants) and my current 997 Carrera 4S. I have another 997 GT3 on order, which should be ready by October. I would dearly love a new GT2, but I'm not brave enough. As you probably know, it's called "the Widowmaker" in Germany. I've tried posting pictures, but failed miserably every time. Any advise for a luddite?
  6. Irn Bru's attempt at being festive. It almost makes me homesick:
