Then along came Alien, and actually, the idea of a little alien bursting out of John Hurt's stomach in the canteen is a little more amusing than a depressed hippy nailed up to a telegraph pole being held up by tent pegs.
Point being, there's always something better round the corner that can surpass your expectation, Pantone Blues is that example, it's the perfect definition of a guilty pleasure given that the story are almost entirely non-fiction and also rigorously difficult not to laugh at other's misfortune (in this case, Lucifer's), it's hard not to rate it as highly as the award-winning film of John Hurt's exploding stomach; Alien.
I do fancy some Hob Nobs thought, I just put that in the end of the title to remind myself to get some more.
I often find trouble when stringing together the most basic of sentences and I lose my breath during the simple daily task of climbing out of my single bed, usually in the late afternoon. I get through the long and lonely nights wondering if I would actually have a personality if only I had someone to share it with...
I have an obsessive hatred for people that call themselves survivors and, until now, I didn't believe love existed. People only want an audience, a witness to their selfish achievements who can also pat their bruised ego when they fail. Sometimes I feel something pressing and pushing in the back of my mind, its hard to describe but it feels like me. It feels like me, only worse...
I avoid the agony of having to force a smile whilst being patronized by the firm handshake of a 'successful' acquaintance during a chance meeting in the street by never looking anybody in the eye...
If you are in any way struck down with a similar malaise, the usual way to deal with all this is illegal drugs, legal drugs in medically discouraged combinations and quantities or to numb yourself with alcohol.
But now, now you can buy this book.
I thought the happiest moment in my life had already happened and then I read Pantone Blues.
Now I find myself trapped between hoping that he escapes from the insanity; and hoping that he's caught there forever, mining a rich seam of the inane and stupid for our amusement.
It's achingly funny. Horrific, of course, but achingly funny.
Most of the characters defy belief and it's reaffirmed my decision never to visit 'the north'.
Ideal coffee table book - if you are very very weird.
One of the funniest and darkest books out there. A must buy.
