    If you are up for something experimental, put your headphones on, close your eyes and enjoy this audio show (listening without the headphones will ruin it):

    Virtual Barbershop


    PS: It is safe for all ages and no trickery involved.

    PPS: If it gets stuck, click on the PLAY button again and it will carry on.

    Four Weddings 'Best UK Film Ever'

    Four Weddings and a Funeral has been named the best British film of all time, just beating Monty Python's Life of Brian in a new poll.

    Sir Sean Connery and Sir Anthony Hopkins shared the title of the country's favourite actor while Dame Judi Dench was named best actress.

    ...

    Richard Curtis's 1994 romantic comedy took 22% of the vote in the poll, squeaking past the Life of Brian by just 1%.

    Trainspotting, about heroin users in Scotland, was third with 15% of the vote.

    Life of Brian's mixture of comedy and religious themes prompted controversy when it was released in 1979.

    ...

    Casino Royale, starring Daniel Craig as James Bond, made it into fourth place with 10% and Guy Ritchie's gangster film Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels came fifth with 8%.

    The top 10 was completed with Lawrence of Arabia (8%), Withnail and I (5%), Atonement (4%), The Wicker Man (4%) and Get Carter (3%).

    Dame Judi took nearly a third (29%) of the votes in the best actress poll, more than double that of her nearest rivals Dame Helen Mirren and Julie Walters, both on 14%.

    Behind Sir Sean and Sir Anthony in the best actor poll were Sir Michael Caine, Grant and Sir Ian McKellen. Some 1,000 people were questioned in the survey for Virgin Media.
