    As Time Goes By

    Two questions. Does anybody else watch AS TIME GOES BY on BBC America? This is a comedy series (not a sitcom, more a story with a lot of humor) starring Judi Dench and Geoffrey Palmer. Second question, if you have watched it, do you not agree that it is the finest series of its genre, bar...

    When music and writing combine.

    I agree with Lucian about music being distracting. If the music is any good, I start listening to it properly and can't focus on what I'm writing, but if the music isn't anything special, why play it? (This is just how it works for me. I've met many people who say that music helps...

    Can anyone recomend a classical cd?

    I came across this thread while I was browsing through some ancient ones in a mood of nostalgia. Is anyone interested in reviving it. (Thus giving me more opportunities to pontificate and be...

    What scares you the most...

    I started wondering whether my post had been a bit too serious,but re-reading this thread in daylight it looks as if some people did take the topic deadly seriously (e.g. drowning, the deaths of loved ones) while other suggestions were surely tongue-in-cheek joking. (Does anybody really go in...

    What scares you the most...
