Please, no more!

I'm really fed up with hearing about the sodding Titanic.

Ditto!! I never saw the movie and could not care less about the hype.

I never will see the movie either.

and I was starting to think I was the only person in the world who'd never seen the movie.

Yet somehow I feel though I have.

Lord, yes.

Can you imagine how bad it is in the heritage industry? We're torn between hiding under the desk till it passes, and trying to come up with the crappest Titanic link ever.

(My contribution: my grandad was born the night it sank. He married a woman, my granny, who was born on the night the First World War broke out. Eeerie, innit?)

I think the desk sounds good. It all seems very ghoulish to me, and this is me saying that.

(I have no contributions)

Yep. Ghoulish, but not actually fun.

We got married the day Chernobyl blew...

I was born during the Heimaey eruption!

NEEEEAR, FAR, WHEREVER YOU ARRRRRRRRE! I BELIEVE THAT THE HYPE FOR TITANIC DOES GO ONNNNNNNN!

What? You knew SOMEBODY was gonna do it, haha! I read Kate Winslet loathes that song. :)

Um, no?

As I don't know the lyrics though, it actually took me a moment there. I live in blissful ignorance. :)

I have NO IDEA how you got away with that. I highly doubt your story about hearing too much about the Titanic now!

Ah, but because I was so sick of it before, I just turned over (though that is getting inconvenient as there is so much to avoid now).

I'm really reacting now to the coverage on the BBC website and there's no sound with that!

I've been to the pub, but, as always, I AM WITH YOU, BOGGLES!!!

The film was shit. All this tie in shit is shit. I am ignoring everything that pops up on the BBC website until it goes away.

I was watching The Mummy this afternoon, and was a little bit annoyed that instead of just revelling in the banterously fantastic docks scene, I was also forced to think about how shit the docks scene is in Titanic by comparison.

Rick/Evie 4eva baybee; Jack and Rose should just drown and fuck off with their weird 'oh, plz, draw me naked with this ugly jewellery' sex games. So there.

I have never seen the film, so I am free to not understand any of that!I did enjoy The Mummy though, mostly because I really wish I looked like Rachel Weisz.

(see what I am reduced to in order to think of ANYTHING worth posting?)

And you even did it in small letters... Tut, tut. *shakes head*

You've missed nothing. I actually watched it at school, IIRC, though I vaguely remember it was primary school and our teacher was giving us a special treat by allowing us to see a 12. I was so, so bored. If older!me finds romance mostly dull, then little!me found it utterly mind-numbing. And everyone was crying! Terrible stuff.

Of course, what was worse was all the years afterwards, with that god awful My Heart Will Go On played in every single talent show/class musical afternoon/random teenage school event for ever after. Usually on the flute - though I think even I had the piano music from somewhere. By the end of Year 11 it was second only to A Whole New World from Alladin as my most hated and yet predictable tune to hear at this sort of thing. Teenagers these days don't know how lucky they are.

I think the only film I saw at school was Caddyshack. Much better than wet romance drivel!

How the hell I managed to avoid the song for so long, I will never know. But not being at school, might have a lot to do with it- I think school is responsible for much of my loathing of The Beatles.

School is what takes a bad song and makes it The Death of All That Is Good.

The one good thing about that film is Leo freezing to death and/or drowning. Pity Kate didn't join him. And the bloody song.

The only interesting thing to ever have come out of that film is Kate Winslet's diary, which just goes to show how happy James Cameron is to basically torture his actors...

Happily, I've managed to miss any commercials there may have been for it for it and any news stories centered on it. I didn't watch it the first time around, and I never will.

Being stuck at my parents for the weekend as they continuously watched rubbish on the History Channel (which has no history on it anymore...) really did my head in for it.

Don't you wish the bloody thing had sank on its second voyage instead? Surely there would have been so much less hype...

I wish something alright.

Me too. OK, it was a century ago. So nobody left alive who was there.

Breaking news: it's still at the bottom of the Atlantic. Big Deal

Ah, but now you can see it as never before! Again!

Um. No thanks?

It's a long way down. And cold. It can stay there.

Nope. Especially not in 3D. Nor Smellovision.

Especially not with Leo and Kate.

My grandmother was born in 1913 and apparently when she was growing up, kept hearing about the "brave Christian men" who went down with the Titanic and every time there was a funeral, "Nearer My God to Thee" was played. She grew up despising the hymn, so much so that she left specific instructions that it was under no circumstances to be played at her funeral or she'd come back and haunt us.

She apparently gave my mom an earful about all the hype surrounding the movie's initial release and how she'd be happy if she never had hear the word "Titanic" again. If she was still with us, I know she'd have a tart thing or two to say now.

The only Titanic-related thing I've been enjoying is I have Gaelic Storm's "Titanic Set" in rotation on my iTunes. They're the group playing in third class and I like their music in general, so, hey.

That's one thing more you're been enjoying than me.

I know posting about it just adds to it all, but like your grandmother, I just had to vent a bit.

LOL!! I still can't believe there are people who thought it was just a film ......!!

Really? No, I am not really surprising. ::despairs::

Watching Breakfast this morning, I thought exactly the same thing.

How much longer do we have to put up with this?

At least until the weekend, or Sunday even, when it'll be the centenary...after which I expect they'll start concentrating on London 2012 again (I'm actually becoming quite fed up with that as well).

Ugh. I must have some Olympic immunity though has I have been living with that for a few years now as my company built the stadium (and the awful observation tower thing) and I'm not that bothered by it yet.

Me too! I'm so glad someone finally said it.

Now, if someone could just tell the BBC...
