Is a chief. And by that i don't mean some kind of prolific leader. He came and did a lecture at my art school and firmly cemented my white hot burning hatred for him. He professed he was a "hipster" and that he was hungover from the night before. Firstly there is nothing more annoying than people complaining/showing off about their party lifestyle.Secondly, declaring yourself as a hipster is a bit like drilling a hole in your head minus the trepan effect some people achieve. He was full of contradictions and ultimately came across as being a pretty stupid ill informed drunk. Just because he hangs out with Nick Cave doesn't mean he is cool or good or important. So Fuck you Lecky and fuck the Turner prize, the only good bit was the cocks people had drawn in the comments section at the end.

Probably has one of the grimmest endings i have seen. Yeah, thats the sherminator from American Pie getting eaten by a giant alien from another dimension, worth seeing purely for that. To be honest its not that bad but is let down by shite special effects. If you like the idea of the world ending,religious nuts, violent yanks,bad stephen king books or maybe just mist then this is your flick.
Arthur Deborman and myself have organised an impromptu christmas party, its gonna be off the rope. You should come and tell all your friends to come too! Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah safe safe safe safe

The earliest stories of golems date to early Judaism. Adam is described in the (Tractate Talmud 38b) as initially created as a golem when his dust was "kneaded into a shapeless hunk". Like Adam, all golems are created from clay. They were a creation of those who were very holy and close to God. A very holy person was one who strove to approach God, and in that pursuit would gain some of God's wisdom and power. One of these powers was the creation of life. No matter how holy a person became, however, a being created by that person would be but a shadow of one created by God.
Early on, the notion developed that the main disability of the golem was its inability to speak. In Sandhedrin 65b, is the description of Raba creating a golem using the Sefer Yetzerah. He sent the golem to Rav Zeira; Rav Zeira spoke to the golem, but he did not answer. Said Rav Zeira, "I see that you were created by one of our colleagues; return to your dust." It is said that if a golem were made able to speak, that would give it a soul, and — because a golem cannot be made perfectly — that ability could make it very dangerous.
Having a golem servant was seen as the ultimate symbol of wisdom and holiness, and there are many tales of golems connected to prominent rabbis throughout the history.
Other attributes of the golem were gradually added over time. In many tales the Golem is inscribed with magic or religious words that keep it animated. Writing one of the names of God on its forehead, a slip of paper in its mouth, or enscribed on its body, or writing the word Emet (אמת,"truth" in the Hebrew language) on its forehead are examples of such words. By erasing the first letter aleph in Emet to form Met (מת, "dead" in Hebrew) the golem could be deactivated. Another way is by writing a specific incantation in the owner's blood on calfskin parchment, and placing it in the mouth. Removing the parchment will deactivate the golem. It is likely that this is the same incantation that the Rabbi recites in the classic narrative. Golems also need to rest on the Sabbath lest they go berserk.
