Off message.

Why doesn't Barack Obama just get it over with, find the nearest phone box and emerge in Ann Summers' finest with a great big dirty 'S' tattooed on his chest?

Well, that's about as topical as it gets here on Radgery. I wouldn't know the zeitgeist if it sauntered up and asked me where it could buy a brand new, flame grilled recession burger.

No no, I'm on to talk about the windy walk, that time when our souls met kindred for the first time, that first kiss, the first taster of love so visceral...

Wait. Stop. No that's not going to work either. I'm simply jittery with hormonic yearnings. No need to broadcast it to the world. And there was no seminal walk down Howth pier. Stop making shit up, Radge.

Film reviews - Well, I did happen upon 'Definitely Maybe' on Sky Movies earlier, starring Shannon from Home And Away and some lad who looks and sounds just like Jason Lee, but isn't Jason Lee. Ryan Reynolds, that's it.

Oh and the kid from 'Little Miss Sunshine'. Wasn't 'Little Miss Sunshine' a load of tosswank? Anyway, 'Definitely Maybe'. Yeah, I watched 18 minutes of it and I'm never getting it back.

Expressions and bile - Do you know what I fucking hate? 'It does what it says on the tin'. It was fine as an ad, but the amount of dickheads using it out of context, well, it's wearing.

'Yeah, Denilson's a good player. He does exactly what it says on the tin...'

What fucking tin? Where? Show it to me. You can't? No. No you can't.

So, yeah, Obama...

Phone box, good one---I'm almost expecting his head to start glowing with saintliness myself.

Love him anyway, I can't help it. And I think I'm not the only one who's had too much coffee tonight...

But I so enjoyed the ramblings. It suits you sir, suits you.

Yeah, Obama SO flunked the inaugural address. He's going to be a major-league flop. Poor old McCain. RADGE 2012!

prin said...

no he didn't, he had it memorized. it was the chief justice that f'ed it up and i think he should issue a formal apology. d-head.

Sarah Gostrangely said...

Feck politics and serious shit, there's enough of that with Ann Doyle's head on it.

Im all for the brainwank Radge, fire ahead.

I, conversely, was delighted and thrilled with Little Miss Sunshine, and had a very unappropriate crush on the Nietzche teenager.

adogwoof said...

prin dude(ss), you're confusing the taking of the oath of office with the giving of the inaugural address...jeez, people are so hypersensitive to any criticism of Obama... it's kinda worrying...!
RADGE 2012!

narocroc said...

Let it all out there Radge. It's good to vent.

I used to play football with a lad called Ronald Seal.

Conan Drumm said...

"seminal walk"

What is that, dribbling ambulation without a football?

Radge said...

Conan - Titter.

Susan - A bit of ADD last night. Thanks!

AG and Prin - Why can't you kids just get on? Obama's moving on to you once he sorts out the middle east.

Sarah - You're right, feck it. I did like the grandfather. He was good.

Narocroc - That makes me happy. What did it say on his tin?

prin said...

adogwoof it is you who is confused...
This came from the Washington Post yesterday.

"President Obama took the oath of office -- again -- on Wednesday, out of what a White House lawyer described as "an abundance of caution."

"We believe that the oath of office was administered effectively and that the president was sworn in appropriately yesterday. But the oath appears in the Constitution itself. And out of an abundance of caution, because there was one word out of sequence, Chief Justice Roberts administered the oath a second time," said White House Counsel Greg Craig in a statement issued early Wednesday night.

Obama and Chief Supreme Court Justice John Roberts had both seemingly stumbled over the 35-word oath during Obama's swearing-in as president on Tuesday, leading some to question whether he had properly committed the Constitutionally-mandated speech act that made him president of the United States.

A president is required by the Constitution to say: "I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."

At the inaugural, Roberts had mixed up the words, saying instead: "...that I will execute the office to President of the United States faithfully..."

And so, at 7:35 p.m. today, according to the White House pool report, Roberts re-administered the oath in the Map Room of the White House."

Sorry, Radge, now we can get along. It is just always going to be a bone of contention with me because now that we have a president who can actually rise up to the position, the news people lit on this one flub, that wasn't even his fault, and would not let it go.

narocroc said...

Ah he was a bit of a woodener Radge.

Terence McDanger said...

Little Miss Sunshine was a wonderful film.

It's no Sexy Beast, mind, but it's up there for sure.

Radge said...

Prin - Amazing what the press gets worked up about.

Narocroc - City want Henry now. It never stops.

Radge said...

Terence - Your opinion is wrong, and please don't refer to that particular pink elephant. Gah.

Twenty Major said...

Does Denilson's tin say 'Passes sideways or your money back'?

Radge said...

Twenty - Think it said 'will pass forward to Arshavin if you donate generously.' I didn't get a good look.

Twenty Major said...

Not only can he pass forward he can see into the future.

Gypseysdog said...

Barak Obama. He does exactly what it says on the tin.

Gypseysdog said...

Unlike BaraCk Obama of course. Who, as we know, doesn't come in a tin. Being a President rather than conserved goose liver.
But what he does come in, well, that does everthing he does, only backwards, and in high heels. X20.

Interestingly this morning it was discussed that Pres. Obama had a very special suit on for his Inauguration..the whole dang thing was bullet proof! Some guy in South America, no doubt makes them for drug lords, came up with the technology. So I guess the Pres. came as close to Super Hero power as possible on Jan. 20..able to stop a 9mm bullet with his outfit.

Since you probably didn't make it that far, the best line in "Definitely, Maybe" was when the sunshiny little daughter looks up at her Dad and asks seriously, "Dad, what's the word for a boy slut?" ;)

Radge said...

I dunno Hope, I'm sceptical on that one.

5X - Quite.

B said...

which Denilson?

the broken down barman said...

jason lee??? is that him with a pineapple on his head that used to play for...??? forest?????

Radge said...

B - Arsenal.

Barman - Close, but actually referring to the 'My Name Is Earl' actor.
