He doesn’t annoy me, I quite like singing along in his absolutely terrible Vic Reeves club style..

Now that is annoying. If you want to speak telegramese, then leave out the punctuation marks ! And it should all be capitals (I think - it's been rather a long time)

Have relatives over who have been here for a week and a half now.

They've begun eating my fking packets of ramen and it's pissing me off. You'd think the day after i caught them do it they'd get the hint from me MOVING all of them out of plain site to hide them somewhere else but nooooo. I wouldn't mind if they ate packets that can be easily bought in asda/tesco, but they aren't. they're eating the flavours the supermarkets don't sell, only place i can get these ones from is specialist small oriental/thai grocery shops.

Disney's latest PC bks. Hans Christian Andersen published 'The Little Mermaid' in 1837...and Walt's live action version will feature a black actress in the titular role.

I'll just leave this here.

Ramen? I fear that I have missed out on this presumably tasty, snack. yum
I once read that two, but maximun three days, is all most folk can stand visitors. Even close family / friends. argue

The colour of Ariel's skin is not mentioned in that book.

The mermaid's name wouldn't be Molly, by any chance?

More like the latest Gammon bks. Can't stand the thought of a black actress playing a role you associate with a proper white person?

Indeed. Plus the original story is rather less Disney-friendly than people remember. In it the witch takes the Mermaid's tongue leaving her mute, and also makes it that when she walks on her new feet it is like walking on knives and they constantly bleed. Also, in some versions, her reason for wanting the Prince isn't for love but to steal his soul to extend her own life at the expense of his.

So I think what skin colour she has in the remake is probably the least of the worries with regards to arguing for authenticity to the source material. smile

and the movie is targeted towards kids. kids won't care about skin colour one bit. if anything it's everything positive and nothing negative.
