Looks like Dave is coming good on this promise to bring back Black Sunday, with a taster screening of Cabin in the Woods at Midnight on March 31st 2012 at Cineworld Didsbury (just south of Manchester I believe - I live down south and it`s been a few years since I did Geography at school!)

There`s also a new Facebook page where Black Sunday fans of old (and new ones too) seem to be gathering www.facebook.com/pages/Black-Sunday-Film-Festival/286893008038115

Picture from Gong Tau

Gong Tau

Gong Tau, which, according to the film, translates as Chinese Black Magic, is a film about, well, Black Magic.

This film proudly wears its Category III rating and generally deserves it although Arthur has seen worse...  Read More >>

Handy Hints for Life from Enquire Within Upon Everything, 1897

No. 9: Minor Operations - Bleeding

Bleeding is sometimes necessary at once in certain accidents, such as concussion, and therefore it is well to know how to do this. First of all, bind up the arm above the elbow with a piece of bandage or a handkerchief pretty firmly, then place your finger over one of the veins at the bend of the arm, and feel if there is any pulsation; if there is, try another vein, and if it does not pulsate or beat, choose that one. Now rub the arm from the wrist towards the elbow, place the left thumb upon the vein, and hold the lancet as you would a pen, and nearly at right angles to the vein, taking care to prevent its going in too far, by keeping the thumb near to the point, and resting the hand upon the little finger. Now place the point of the lancet on the vein, push it suddenly inwards, depress the elbow, and raise the hand upwards and outwards, so as to cut obliquely across the vein. When sufficient blood is drawn off, which is known by feeling the pulse at the wrist, and near the thumb, bandage the arm. If the pulse feel like a piece of cord, more blood should be taken away, but if it is soft, and can easily be pressed, the bleeding should be stopped. When you bandage the arm, place of piece of lint over the opening made by the lancet, and pass a bandage lightly but firmly around the arm, so as to cross it over the bend of the elbow.
