grog flog

He drives a succession of classic 50s roadsters even shapelier than his women and his "What kind of man reads Playboy?" pad has one of the first answering machines ever seen on screen – all bakelite console and big tape spools.

Nabakov has posted on Kiss Me Deadly at After Grog

(Wonder if the answer machine was a Peatrophone? Or a later model - there are a couple of pics here if you scroll midway down to Touch Tone Phones and Adapters )

*Beep* Tony T. has left the keys is the trusty yet unhinged hands of Nabokov. Please leave a message and we'll use it as a confession for an unsolved double murder in St Kilda.

"unsolved double murder in St Kilda."

Bandali "Legs" Nabakov strikes de nouveau! His claim that he was cutting room flooring the latest Yahoo Serious fillum with "Baby Face" Barista well into the night has a thousand Cab Savs just doesn't cut the alibi dijon!

"Where are they now? You know. The people who said the AGB couldn't get any better!"

He was taken in the middle of the night to a soccer field in Chile (the application to have this doubting Thomas extradited to the Independent Principality of MCG Fields Forever fell at the first hurdle and had to be inhumanely put down) and was never heard of again (he was indeed refused the time-honoured privilege and cliche of languishing in a jail for years) ... other than as a dissenting, disembodied voice on General Augusto Taylochet's "If you wish to download this Tone, press 3" answering machine.

Ah goody, the semi-trailer has just pulled up ... it's tablet time again! Excellent, there'll be Bellbirds over the White Cliffs of Dover just you wait and see. (I believe they're the cliffs Charlie Cousins fell off.)
