I have nothing to declare but my genius.

Isn't interesting what was seen as frightening and horrific, or just plain obscene even just 20 years ago, is now seen as perfectly usual. I am thinking film wise rather than about Space Invaders but I think the picture illustrates my point perfectly. :)

I found a very interesting book today, a book of the poem "Killing Time" by Simon Armitage. Very good poem. In English we did a poem by him called "Hitcher that was very good as well, although I do prefer "Killing Time"... It's a very interesting poem - so absorbing. Speaking of books, I've almost finished Angels & Demons. Very interesting. ^_^

And for the general cute vote, here is a merecat from Berlin zoo, enjoy!

Cute vote - nil - I hate meercats!
But I love the poetry of Simon Armitage and bought a book of his poems recently "Cloud Cuckoo Land"

It is interesting. It's still possible to terrify, though, even though the effect wears off as the years go by. Dr Who can still get people hiding behind the sofa. Who could forget The Library?
