I would have had respect had he not been such a W the moment he walked in: 'My work is the best. The Embalmer is not so good'. I don't care either way, but a 'Hello, how are you? My name is X. I've done some work, might you be interested?' would have helped. Pompous oaf.

right i have have moved this to rants as it is pretty much that. i locked the embalmer thread for a reason - i didnt want it further ruined by arguments. if you must argue with each other, do it here please.

if it gets too out of hand though, i will lock this thread and possibly delete it.

"I don't want no trouble, mister!"

Anyway, I have said all I want to say.

Maybe we ARE talking cold, calculated genius. The guy has a soundtrack that, as far as he is concerned, is the best there is and now THE EMBALMER section on our forum is locked and cannot be added to - Even if it's EMBALMER-related! And we're all left reeling, stunned at our own behaviour having all made comments that we never imagined we were capable of in our worst forum nightmares.

What's happening to us? My thumbs have gone weird and I feel unusual..

I can almost hear the haunting Sideshow Bob-esque laughter coming from a certain quarter as I type... :twisted:


:wink:

OK, OK, I'm just kidding. It's not quite as bad as this is it?

I liked the other thread though,..
and I'm sure that DrPod enjoyed the banter aswell,.. even though his cd is nowhere near as good as The Embalmer,..

and Crooked, you may have fucked it up for Jeff to get a freebie,.. you know how us northerners like free stuff :lol: :lol:

I wonder if THE EMBALMER thread could be unlocked if we all chill out on there a bit. Could that be done? We've all said what we've said now and can probably leave it at that, right :?:

Blimey, how parochial the villagers are. Life imitating art? I'd forgotten all about that barrage of abuse I received. I feel like Nicole Kidman in Dogville... a bit.

Anyway, I was doing a little Withnail surfing again and found myself here once more. Gotta say, I find it strange that people would spend so long in a such a specialised forum. I would've thought discussing the film, its themes, Robinson etc. would benefit from input from people who are not 'fan' enough to stick round here for so long (e.g. imdb). Still, like chatrooms, many of the people here probably haven't even realised how much they might've succumbed to a siege mentality. 'Outsiders not welcome', eh?

As for the idea of killing off the 'offending' thread? Why? There was no harm done (I find umprompted rudeness more tedious than hurtful). I'm the moderator of a website forum myself and there's one guy who just dives in and calls us all 'queer' and 'wankers' etc. Nobody has any idea why. Now that is a good reason for squishing someone. So, some perspective please, kind people. As to the guy who called me pompous - bollocks. Notwithstanding the fact that the proverbial tongue in cheek is hard to translate in the immediate, and less reflective, environment of the chatroom, I gave the the creator of The Enbalmer the respect and gratitude he so well deserves, and I paid the fellow adults here the compliment of assuming that they could handle a difference of opinion regarding what consitutes the best listening experience when it comes to soundtrack albums. So quit the bigging up the big man routine. He's man enough to defend his own corner.

Now then, where's that Bruce Robinson book - I need some thoughtful respite from the village of the damned.

Ta ra.

and I thought we were supposed to insult each other in true Withnail fashion - now we're supposed to be nice?

The original thread has been deleted, so it would be difficult to know who said what to whom when (and why).

Anyways, I thought we had cleared this up months ago!

Why are we revisiting it?

The original thread is here:

It is rather odd to bring this up again after all this time.
