BOVVERED….

Every so often I become only too aware of the words of Oscar Wilde, who, in his 1889 essay ‘The Decay of Lying’ reminded us that, “Life imitates Art far more than Art imitates Life”.

We are constantly surrounded by ordinary things, people and events which are scarcely noticed until an artist or a performer breathes new life into them.

Their unique interpretation of the behaviour of certain types of people for example, creates an image that almost always remains with us, often bringing a smile as the artists portrayal has indelibly lent itself to our view of a similar person or situation.

Today is one of those days.

I have a vivid image of Roy Kinnear’s character Dad and his harmless but incredibly thick ‘Bovver Boy’ son Gaylord, played by Dick Emery, speaking those immortal words which inevitably followed yet another spectacular failure….

“Dad, I Fink I got it wrong again”

  1. Funny you should say that because I feel like I’ve encountered a few reincarnations of Dick Emerys classic characters lately. ‘Oooo you are awful, but I like you’ 😀

  2. WELL,I THOUGHT I’D POSTED SOME LINKS ON THIS PAGE YESTERDAY, BUT NOT.

    THEY STARTED WITH THE WORDS “DICK EMERY, A GREAT COMIC ACTOR, BUT NEVER A COMEDIAN”.

    NEVER APPEARED.

    (NaturalNews) Dirty electricity, also called electrical pollution is caused by an interruption of 60 Hz alternating current – commonly used to power household appliances and business equipment. If
    you own a television, computer or cordless phone – you are being exposed to dirty electricity. Even solar power generators can create dangerously high levels of electromagnetic fields.

    “While people contrive secret groups that seek world domination, the real threat we have is directly in front of us – it is Republican Governments that masquerade as Democracies and are as evil as the Roman Republic that caused the civil war. The propaganda against Julius Caesar has survived to this day and has wrongly colored our ideas of him and what was at stake.”

  4. Allrightythen, some people in all of their intrepid Glory hole hunting have become an absolute wreck in my honest and personal estimation. Why would that be Mildred? Well I will tell you Outlaw, since Outlaw, your name pops up in copious amounts Outlaw, in fact do you get my Drift Outlaw??

    Transference is an ugly trait to have. From a psychological pov it means in essence that an abused will become an abuser. OK so what does this mean? Well if your parents are the bestest then they will want that for you. However if your parents are alcoholics or valium abusers then you will be overlooked as a child at best, at worst well…..

    So will there be an end to it Mildred? Well yes there will be because as you well know Outlaw everyone has a ‘story’ to tell like you know some family member could turn out to be an embessellor or a thief of artifacts or even a homophobe. In fact I have actual experiences of counselling homophobes. They were actually in prison and had ‘gay’ experiences but then felt bad about this and so they then took part in ‘gay-bashing’ particularly hanging out in public toilets in order to catch the ‘perps’, however, it consistently turns out that the very people doing the so-called bashing actually have skeletons in their closets.

    Mildred awaits the day for everyone to be honest about their past in-discretions – that way as a society we can finally move on.

    1. Could not agree more Mildred. I believe the term is known as ‘Latent Homosexuality’ which is in itself, fine, as is being openly Homosexual.

      Not my particular choice, but it’s not an issue I have particularly strong views about.

      It’s comparable in my opinion to the argument about Internet Freedom, inasmuch as I may not like the things that have been written about me, and I may not agree with much of what is written about other subjects, but I would be a hypocrite if I did not defend people’s rights to hold those opinions, however narrow-minded and bigoted those opinions may be.

      Obviously hurtful and ridiculous lies, however, that is another matter entirely.

  5. Well as long as you know what your truth is and don’t bend with the wind to try to be popular then you will keep your integrity well and truly in tact 🙂

    1. The road of most resistance it is then 🙂

  6. Fascinating analogies there Mildred. Using your example, I wonder if the gay bashers who experience guilt over beating up gay people due to their own homosexual experiences, then feel guilt about the assaults they carry out on their gay peers. I suppose that depends on whether they also possess other extreme psychological personality disorders.

    Psychological Projection is also an interesting subject.

    “Psychological projection is the act or technique of defending oneself against unpleasant impulses by denying their existence in oneself, while attributing them to others. For example, a person who is rude may constantly accuse other people of being rude.

    Although rooted in early developmental stages, and classed by George Eman Vaillant as an immature defence.

    Projection tends to come to the fore in normal people at times of crisis, personal or political, but is more commonly found in the neurotic or psychotic —in personalities functioning at a primitive level as in narcissistic personality disorder or borderline personality disorder.”
