V-rap - what an incredibly long list!

Mike - I'm intrigued by this "incredibly dark taste in music" are we talking Leonard Cohen here or something utterly more sinister?

Martin,
No, about Leonard Cohen level. Something I've always had - I find listening to something like "Berlin" (the Lou Reed album not the crappy 80's perpetrators of The Final Countdown) a cathartic experience.

It was Europe wot did "The Final Countdown". Berlin did the equally marvellous "Take My Breath Away".

A Pedant might just be right - oops.

Grown out of ...
Beakers with lids that leak all over your packed lunch and leave soggy purple sandwiches
Wearing white socks with black leather shoes
A fear of anyone seeing me naked
A fear of soap and water
Wearing the hood up on my tracksuit indoors and not speaking to my dad

Not grown out of cont....
Love of LFC
Apathy to music and a love of literary fiction
Boiled sweets
Inability to talk to atractive women without going red and getting tongue tied

Plus must congratulate Mike S on the catalogue call...I still look forward to a new avon catalogue arriving every other week

Lots of you are happy to admit to never having grown out of nose-picking, or even picking-and-flicking - but is anyone going to 'fess up to still eating what he (women don't pick their noses) excavates out of his nostrils?

Ah, now here's a good link:

http://www.friendsreunited.co.uk/FriendsReunited.asp?wci=afterschool#memories

If you look in the middle-ish of the page, there's something called "Lifeslide": put in your DOB, and it'll tell you what you were listening to / watching / etc at different stages in your life.

From this, I can certainly tell you that I've grown out of Glenn Medeiros (not that I was ever into him in the first place, but it's amazing how you wipe these things from your minf....).

Oops, should have said "mind" not "minf".

But I haven't grown out of "Betty Blue" which is still one of the greatest films ever made (Director's Cut version).

Never grew into : eating bogies, velociraptor (honest - I'm retching just thinking about it!! I can't think of anything more foul.)

Also grew into - my features ("I was a teenage Patrick Stewart" - now showing at a cinema near you!!!), cooking, films with subtitles, conversation.

Never grew out of : laughing at Mackems
15/10/2002 at 17:18
Excellent, Jeff. Makems are such a source of amusement. The new geezer is certainly going to provide some chortles.
The only sad thing is learning the new songs of derision, takes up drinking time.

Oh, I also never grew out of a love for comics.

However, the average reading age for comics (as they have on average become more 'adult' since the eighties) has increased almost exactly with my own age (now 23)!

So I suppose that's less to do with me and more with the publishers..
