Don't Do Anything Without The Gloves!

I have of late,—but wherefore I know not,—lost all my mirth ...

Withnail and I is one of the funniest movies I have ever seen. Period. I really should rewatch it one of these days and do a review. However, recent news that coke snorting stick figure Kate Moss and her man are planning on purchasing the famous Sleddale Hall from this cult classic in order to turn it into an art studio has me deeply depressed. If only I had won the recent $43 million lottery, I could have saved it from her supermodel clutches. However, a group of dedicated fans have banded together in an effort to raise enough funds in order to outbid Ms. Moss at the upcoming auction. I wish them much luck but doubt they'll come close.

If you've never seen Withnail and I, I recommend you run out and find a copy immediately. Skip work. Cut classes. Go go go. It has some of the best lines ever! I won't spoil it all for you but instead I'll leave you with this little clip:

I knew Uncle Monty's cottage was up for sale (starting at £145,000, if I'm not mistaken), but I hadn't heard that Kate Moss was buying it. Sad. :(

I have not seen the film (another one for the list), but anything that Moss and crew do bothers me no end.
