    I was on £3.00 pocket money a week, saved up and bought South Park the Movie on video when I was 9. Convinced my Da to walk in and buy it for me, sound guy. Brought it home, managed to watch half of it before my Ma realised what she was doing her ironing to, confiscated it and never saw it again. After that it seemed a better investment to buy wee boxes of bangers, fake smoke cigarettes and gelatenous fake shite you could leave on yer mates desk. I make a wage now but gutted I dinny have the imagination now that I had back then. Never grow up lad, love fae Glasgow
