After the game is before the game

This is a quote, that fairly precisely describes my situation at the moment. Due to a mis-calculation for doing English camps, I’ve found out that I basically have no time to ‘rest’ at the end of my 6 week stint. One for the local education office, the other for another school, paid. Quite handsomely too I might add. All told well over what I’m paid in a month and basically I’ll earn this and more in about 3 weeks. But at a price of work is no rest. I’ve always considered myself the job as a, well, job. Do it for money, this camp in relative terms makes me a sort of mercenary. Dirty, dangerous jobs, suitable only for a hired guns. My job just became easier when I found out that I’d be teaching the English camps from conversation books or self-made books from the school. Yay.

The title of this blog is a quote from a movie, which is a quote from a person. Can you tell me, which movie and from which person the title of this blog came from?

With an atom bomb in front of their refrigerator, the Young ones try to deal with it, in their own particular way.

Writers Ben Elton, Rik Mayall and Lise Mayer wrote the scripts. Totalling over two seasons only, amongst the facts around the comedy, they based the characters on flatmates they knew while at university.

With additional material from Alexei Sayle, The young ones dealt with issues from Vampires, University challenge, video rental to parties, no money and Cliff Richard. All the while trying to deal with the Balowski family, all of whom were played by Alexei Sayle.

Many of the actors went on to star in later comedies, such as Flithy, Rich and CatflapBottom, The New statesman, Alexei Sayle’s Stuff.  The list goes on.

Mystery quote, sometimes I really wish that I was a fly on the wall

…I suppose, I would too, if I wasn’t one already

An iconic comedy series of the 1980’s, it starred 4 of the possibly most unlikable people in Britain. Can you name that series?

You a big headliner! A headmaster!

I just realised it’s the first time I seen you without the number two headband. And you know what? You look kind of funny. It’s weird man, I knew something was off. I mean, Your forehead is huge brao! It thought your head was big, but damn!!!

That’s a four times, four times, forehead! That’s what they mean when they say headquarters!

You a big headliner! A headmaster!


Shut up.

Not so much a quote but part of a scene from the Anime in question. It’s the second series in a line. The anime draws from many genres and themes. Some of which are samurai, vendettas and dope smoking.

Can anyone guess the title of this anime?
