Ritcherd's College Report

Hello, it’s 9.20pm.

‘Children of the Revolution’ – Baby Ford

The Middle East’s been quite tense latelyIran-backed Lebanese Shi’ite Muslims threatened to kill a Western hostage (one of many) if their leader, taken by Israel, wasn’t returned.  He wasn’t, so they killed the hostage.  They then threatened to kill another US hostage at 4pm on Thursday if their leader wasn’t released.  So President Bush sent a huge number of warships to the Gulf.  Bush was quite prepared to open fire on Iran + the Lebanon if the Muslims didn’t withdraw their threat.  They didn’t.  Instead, they extended their deadline to 8pm.  Bush left them with the same choice: free the hostage or be bombed.  Eventually, the Shi’ite’s said they’d give the hostage a few more days, at which point Bush requested the release of ALL Western hostages.  Now Iran has gone barmy, telling the world it’s their duty to nack the USA and her allies.  Stupid buggers.

By the way, last week’s edition of Byline, devoted to Salman Rushdie, was skill!

Later:

‘The Immortal Death’ – Crass

I keep thinking about James Bond + then BATMAN.  The Bond film was so good, and sitting in the front row with the screen filling my entire vision, I found myself having to turn and twizzle for certain bits.  It was so good!  AND I CANNOT WAIT FOR BATMANKim Basinger’s beginning to intrigue me…

I like ‘The Future’ from the soundtrack by Prince.



HOORAY!  I just rang Natalia Wank and she IS coming with us on holiday.  And if we go to Arran it’s going to cost absolute tonnes of cash.  Looks like we’re going from 24th – 29th, meeting Nat on the train to Edinburgh in the buffet car.  How thrilling.

And HOOFALOOFAH!  I just rang Flash.  And it’s fine.  Yoola-booba-doo!

And Baby Ford is brilliant.


The War Machines – a Doctor Who novel by Ian Stuart Black – was crap.

I’m reading The Rainbow again by DH LAWRENCE.

Oh aye!  I got my report from College, and wasn’t it damned good?

Results as follows:

Doing quite well, but I insist on doing even better. 

If I keep this up, I’ll leave NORCAT with the equivalent of 4 A-levels and a mine of practical experience.
