    Well Cats is kind of related to sociology....

    Just not very much.
    :P It's all about psychology mate

    Nah it would be Les Miserables - Revolutions (specifically my obsession with the French Revolution)
    Chess - the Cold War and all the chess psychology
    We Will Rock You - Globalisation and the power of the media (a slightly more tenuous link, but after my ranting on the first two a light break )

    And Grease, a gripping and thought provoking analysis of the changing roles of the 'family' and the 'cohabitational' dynamic in a postmodernist culture as well as the influence that media stereotypes can have on interpersonal relationships.

    Bah! The KGB is just the Stasi with cheaper suits and thicker accents. The Stasi is where the fun is at.

    Thirteen Days... yeah. Deliberate mistake.... ....

    Anyway. I seem to have a tendancy to do that. I once called 1984, 1985. Made up for it by a jpke about the sequel being better.

    It wasn't all that far off the mark AFAIK.

    A girl I knew once admitted she 'wasn't sure' where Wales was. Not Beirut I can understand, Zimbabwe is understandable and Mozambique is nothing but reasonable.... but WALES?

    The doctors didn't think there was much point because of the length of the waiting lists. It's healed quite a bit now but last week I kinda rolled over onto it by accident and it's giving me problems again. But I can almost bend it normally so it's not as bad as it was.

    And isn't Girton like light years away?
