Ehh, well depending on what part of town you live in, you may get away with keeping the beard

Yeah. Anything goes, these days.
I haven't seen Hellraiser for ages, went looking for the DVD yesterday - no luck in Oldham, but all the sequels were available. Wasn't sure if they were any good, so didn't buy any. I'll try in Manchester tomorrow. I read the book it was based on years ago, too: "The Hellbound Heart", lent it someone and never got it back - so I bought that again. I'd already started rereading another of Clive Barker's: "The Damnation Game", which I recommend to anybody interested in that genre.

PatV: Ah, no more CD box-sets, Sasha?
BrianL: No more teasing, Sasha, it's time to play.
PatV: Time to play...
Sasha: Wait!
PatV: No more deals child, it is your flesh we want to experience, not your skill at bargaining.
Sasha: No deals, just information, just information!
PatV: Go on... but trick us again child, and your suffering will be legendary even on LQ!
PatV: [Sasha hands PatV a picture of Nylex] What's this?...
[looks at picture]
PatV: Someone else you think escaped us, like Sycamorex?
Sasha: He didn't escape, he's you!
PatV: [pauses] Nonsense, I...
Sasha: It is you! You weren't always this way, you were Sycamorex once. You were all human! Remember your fear, your confusion!
BrianL: Enough!
PatV: [to BrianL] Wait!... I remember...

PatV: Ah, Sasha. We thought we lost you.
BrianL: So sweet of you to come back.
PatV: How can Slackware 13 send us back, child? It's almost here... and so are you!
[PatV transforms Slackware 12.2 into Slackware 13]
Sasha: I didn't open the CD box-set!
BrianL: "Didn't open the box-set." And what was it last time, "Didn't know what the box-set was?" And yet, we do keep finding each other, don't we?
PatV: Oh, Sasha. So eager to play, so reluctant to admit it.
BrianL: Perhaps you're teasing us. Are you teasing us?
Sasha: I've come for my copy of Slackware 13!
[the Slackware developers laugh at that]
PatV: But it is in limbo, child, and quite unreachable.
Sasha: I don't believe you!
PatV: But it's true. It is in limbo, just as you are on LQ!
Sasha: And what about you?
PatV: We have no more surprises.
BrianL: We've always been here.
PatV: But please, feel free, explore. We have eternity to dangle Slackware 13 before you.

PatV: It is not hands that summon us. It is desire for Slackware 13!
Some munchkins have too much time on their hands.

True, Bruce, but what better way to fill the idle hours? That's what Slacking is all about.
