Yeah, so I'm trying to make these page names more descriptive than creative. When I look through the archive I'd like it to be as easy as possible to find the page I'm looking for.

Anyway, the VHS Joe gifts to Eddie was originally going to be Creepy House Party, which would have been a reference to a no-budget short horror movie I made with my freinds back in 2000 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VCcaHruMXu0). But we figured a movie with a sci-fi bent would be more suitable for Joe to give Eddie. Also it kind of ties in nicely with the fact that we just had a couple pages of sci-fi outer-space action.

So it's not a dodgy porn movie?

Now you made me go and look up "dodgy." We've started watching Red Dwarf recently, so maybe that'll help us get more familiar with British slang.

But no, not quite a porn, but I'm sure it toes the line at times. But that'd be interesting if it really was a porn and Eddie was excited to sit down and watch it with Joe and Alex. I suppose that would say quite a bit about their friendship.

Sorry, that's what you get after living in Glasgow for a few years. I'll try to use more slang, just for laughs. Perhaps I should research 80's slang.

If you like that sort of thing, maybe you should consider buying Roger's Profanisaurus. It's full of it, although some of it is a bit far-fetched. We have the Das Krapital edition in the lab and it's been a life saver, especially when some laborious experiment failed after a very long day.

I haven't seen Red Dwarf yet, only one episode once. I heard it's really funny, I'll probably get it on DVD once I finally get a job..

Sure, slang it up. Since we decided that the Bounty Hunter will speak with a British accent (hence the "bloody"), Jessica and I were recently discussing looking up British slang that was used in the '80s. Can't have anachronisms. I'll look into that book. Thanks.

We recently finished watching the first series of Red Dwarf. It's odd in that much of its humor misses the mark for us (too much predictable '80s sitcom humor) but yet the show has a distinct charm that makes us want to keep watching it. Also, I'm sure the show will getter better. After all, it took The Simpsons a few seasons to actually get good (I loved the early seasons when I was a kid, but man are they hard to sit through now).

I don't think the profanisaurus contains any specific 80's slang since the first issue was published in '97, but it's still funny. It's a bit disturbing how many phrases start with "Dutch" though..
