    We have sold our place so I have the monster task of relocating my spares department and my collection of motorcycles to wendover.

    It will be an epic task that will prob go down in history

    Well.......in keeping with the Martha Farquar Mindset, my life is shit and I have absolutely nothing to look forward to, but apart from that, things aren't too bad. Moving to Wendover eh? They don't like motorcycle hooligans there you know....

    I guessed you might have a spare you hoarder :evil

    It started making a bearing graunching type of sound (see previous post) halfway thru/ough a longish journey and I had no option but to make it there and back or die trying. I don't mind engine lock ups so much as if I catch it quick I can always slap out the clutch & hope the chassis comes back under control*, but when a gearbox locks mid flight it's an almost definite crash/bang.


    * From plenty of practice via knackered 2 strokes, but I've got out of the habit of resting a finger on the clutch, and I guess that's gonna bite me someday.

    For the sake of clarity, and in response to enquiries I have received, I am not Orson Welles. But imagine perhaps Charles Foster Kane without the drive or the finance...

    I was looking for Kubricks Aylesbury out-takes from Clockwork Orange but the best I could find was the above. According to various other things read elsewhere it seems the scenes were cut as the actor who played the Professor (pictured in link) died before the later pick up shots were taken. He was supposed to reappear late on & recognise a reformed McDowell, but the Aylesbury scenes were cut because he died, so the tramp that the gang attacked in the underpass* does the recognition instead. The Aylesbury footage still seems to exist in the (massive) Kubrick archive but is seems not to be accessible anywhere.

    Malcolm McDowell - "We did a sequence in Aylesbury. The town square was decorated with giant rubber ducks, weird animals, they were huge, and we accosted an old guy from the library. I ripped out these priceless books that he had and I threw them up. I remember my line, it was taken from the book, it was: 'There's a mackerel of a cornflake for you.' The pages from the ripped books fall like confetti. The retribution was that Alex goes to the library when he is cured and all the old codgers in the library go: 'You were the one!'"
