    Kinokuya (or however it's fucking spelt) in Emporium or Siam Paragon mate.

    Yes, that's a wicked book indeed. I would offer to lend it you but Pat has HAD IT FOR OVER ONE YEAR AND WON'T GIVE IT FUCKING BACK TO ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If he does you can borrow it mate, fucking amazing book!!!

    Hopefully this will shame him into giving it back!!!

    That's the vid I lent you BJ of that book.

    It's fucking superb and I had the hardback copy in the UK but that got skanked as well 'cos I'm so trusting and nice.

    Also Adventures in the Screen Trade by William Goldman is good.

    Never Eat Lunch is okay (didn't get into it myself).

    There's also an old one Babylon something or other which I'd love to get hold of!


    Riddle me this brother can you handle it
    Your style to my style you can't hold a candle to it
    Equinox symmetry and the balance is right
    Smokin' and drinkin' on a Tuesday night
    It's not how you play the game it's how you win it
    I cheat and steal and sin and I'm a cynic

    Thanks for the tips lad... Weirdly I already knew that you had read that book... I can't remember what lesson I thaught half an hour ago most of the time but my head is full of weird, useless trivia about people I have never met
