Withnail And I

Yaxlich has just read that there are plans to turn one of his favourite films into a West End play. He is certainly not in favour of the idea. He is sick and tired of seeing movie, film and theatre production companies taking an easy route out and rehashing old ideas. Why not come up with new and unique ideas? What? Are there not enough new writers out there or has no one got the balls to put on a new show anymore?

The only way he would support this production would be if the producer were to take a Rocky Horror-esque angle and insist that everyone who came to see the show took part in the infamous drinking game.

For those unfamiliar with the film, it essentially tells the story of two out of work actors who get drunk. A lot. The drinking game involves watching the film and matching the alcoholic intake of the character played by Richard E Grant, which is as follows :

1 quarter bottle of wine
A gin, a cider with ice and a pork pie
Lighter fluid
Several large sherries
Red wine
Whisky
Port
More whisky and a "pair of pints"
More sherry
"The finest wines known to man" and "cake"
Another whisky
Chateau Margeau 1953

He forgot to mention that when he said 'everyone' that he included the producer. Perhaps then the spineless fool would commission some new work rather than try to cash in on a classic film.

Yaxlich believes that Sim once took part in the drinking game. Did this involve lighter fluid?

No, haha! I wimped out. I had to drink jaegermeister instead. Whatta mistakka to make-a. Lighter fluid would have tasted better.

Pah! Blogger is playing up and has pasted my comment twice. What is up with blogger at the moment?? Grr!

Blogger is pants and Yaxlich is very seriously thinking of abandoning it in favour of a more robust blogging software. Like paper and crayons.
