Former Alumnus

I have long been interested in famous alumnae from my high school, but really there has just been some guy who used to host Tomorrow's World, and some footie guy.

However, I have just found out that the one and only Kele Okereke of Bloc Party fame used to go to my school!

Doesn't that just make you proud?

The Wonky Gnome

Not really. I tthink that I'm more famous than him, frankly.

Why is every man and his dog falling over themselves to praise Grace Jones' new album? It's vapid, bland nonsense. Jones was rubbish in the '80s, and she's rubbish now. Badsneakers

Like Nahid, I don't find Girls Aloud good role models for women. But there are plenty of men in music who have the equivalent criteria. Toned, muscular, self-absorbed and dumb. Yet, strangely, they never come in for criticism from women. Ma Goulden

Hello Again

The smarter Ziners will notice that I vanished. Well, I am back, with my list- what to mention what to get printed.

* H*lly**ks
* WLW
* Zine
* B*ckch*t
* Lists
* Spiky Stuy's arrogance
* The Brigadier's port
* And... to start an argument.

This list took me a long time.

The Unambiguous Urbanite

I'm sure I've spotted The Brigadier hanging around. It's the monacle...

My overlooked band is The Blue. A Walk Across The Rooftops and Hats are mind-blowing albums. They're also great live. I saw them in Glasgow a few months ago, and I'm still recovering from how great they were. H*llraiser

Throbbing Gristle are my forgotten great band. A force to be reckoned with in the '70s, they made people stand up and notice. Plus, they've influenced everyone from Depeche Mode to Klaxons. Angel

Tales of Spanish

I went to see a Spanish play the other night- the intellectualness of it all. Especially as at the time I thought I understood most of it, but looking back I'm not so sure. Most of the story seemed to be about donkeys and a man being after a woman's grapes.

There are two conclusions that can be drawn. Either my Spanish is no good, or Spanish plays are rather strange.

El Alce Escurridizo (The Spanish alter-ego of The Elusive Moose)

I just hope you are talking about the seedless variety.

Holocaust outrage

I've read many 'oooh, how cruel to animals' letters about Cannibal Hlocaust. Why are you so single minded? While ranting about the poor animals you neglect the other shocking parts such as the abortion or the r*pe. Are they acceptable? Toby, Sheffield

Alter-Ego

I saw some fishies on the telly today. Big fishies. There was a man getting all excitable over a perch, going: "Oooh, isn't he magnificent?"

When I told farmer jack, he reacted similarly.

Therefore, fish man from Discovery Home & Leisure = farmer jack.

Holocaust gnaws vegetarians

Speaking as a vegetarian of 24 years, animals being killed for meat and for entertainment are different. It's human nature to eat meat, we're designed that way. Killing for films is not acceptable. Sharon, Bolton

If someone eats meat there is no reason they cannot recognise animal cruelty. Am I not allowed to be appalled by child cruelty because I don't have children? Get some perspective so we can move. Lotty Fairbanks

Giant Camel Spiders

These are so creepy and they livee in shadows. But if you move them out of shadows they go for the nearest one, and if it's yours... well, don't bother running away.

They're carnivorous and they have an anaesthetic so if they bite you, you don't feel it- you could wake up with half a leg gone! But don't worry, they're only in Iraq, folks! Bet one could give WLW a run for his money.

Ambiguous Snail

Stop, stop, stop. You are bringing back memories and giving me the hump.

Feeling your age

Ageism is now a part of cinema chain policy. I have noticed more and more that all cinema chains are putting their 18 certificate films on their lowest numbered screens which in turn means their smallest. Lee, North Weald

Cannibal Holocaust is considered to be a disgrace because it features real animal cruelty, yet Apocalypse Now, which also has an animal being slaughtered, is regarded as a work of art. They're both unwatchable. Steve, Dudley

I'm Happy For Once

My life is great at the moment.

I'm training to be what I've lways wanted to be, made tons of new friends, I'm rolling in money and I've just got Mariah Carey's No 1 album for a mere £6.99.

Bargain!

Emma-the-li'l'-Angel

Hang on, Mariah's squawking made you happy? Er, good on you.

King of the flops

The worst film casting I ever saw was Richard Gere in a King Arthur film. He was dire. I expected him to start chewing gum. Margaret, Atherstone

Movie of the year has to be Seed. I like Uwe Boll films and this has to be his best. Aaron, Yorks

The breathtaking Jeeja Yamin gets my vote to win the best newcomer. Her performance in the Thai flick Chocolate was stunning. Max, Kettering

Satan's Little Helper I bit into a fork. I chipped my teeth. I'm not happy. Don't eat forks, children, even if you're hungry.

Was it a garden fork?

Paddy Irishman Why do I keep looking both ways when crossing a one-way street?

Cos you can never trust a car.

Father Cooly Bless you, my children. I shall be conducting services on Sunday for the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. No beards. And that goes for the men too.

Are you related to Father Ted?

Asian classics

Re Asian films. Here's a list of some essential, lyrical and forgotten Japanese gems. Toky Story, Kuroneko, The Life of Oharu, A Taxing Woman, Like Grains of Sand, Ikiru, Kwaidan, The Eel and Drunken Angel. Kevin Lee, Slough

Re Cannibal Holocaust, has it been passed uncut now in Britain? I thought the BBFC would not allow any animal cruelty to be shown in movies. I have the cut version and I can see how that version could cause offence. Mr C

Moongoose I was wondering, is your name anything to do with Number Three, the mole in Austin Powers 3?

Or this week's elvis chart position?

Alan Thompson's Left Peg I agree with the person on page 3. Don't we all.

Iceblink Luck knows all the answers.

Ambiguous Snail All I want is to be mentioned in someone else's letter. That's all I want. I'm that kinda person. I want recognition! Sob.

Ask Iceblink Luck!
