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.

( Did you ever see Eleven Days? It's set around the Cuban Missile Crisis. Quite good, says I. )

13 days wasn't it? And I agree it was an excellent film. Anyone know how historically accurate it was?

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?

A girl I know from my windband was supposedly reading something which said that a lot of people are born outside of wedlock. She went and looked up a map for somewhere called Wedlock.

I feel better already! Thanks shiny

You go out running a lot? Very energetic . I can't really do much running or sports stuff these days because I picked up a knee injury when I was skiing in February I'm such a disaster area!

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?

It is good that Girton is far away makes me sweat a lot and gets my heart rate going.
