Some hate the English. I don’t. They’re just wankers. We, on the other hand, are colonized by wankers.

One of my favourite scenes in Trainspotting.

Although he’s talking about Scotland, I feel this speech kind of hits home for Canadians, too.

p.s. I’ve been to that mountain!

  1. Excellent choice for pick of favourite lines from a film chock-full of awesome lines. What is that mountain?

    Sage Theatre is putting on another Irvine Welsh play this season, after their mindboggling production of Trainspotting a couple of years ago. If you find yourself in Calgary mid-March, you should come with me.

  2. Gah! I forget the name, we passed it going through the Highlands on the way to Loch Ness….all I remember is that its near Rannoch Moor…

    Sounds intriguing! I will defintely take you up on the offer. Hopefully though once I’m settled in Van we’ll see each other more when you come to visit the RO. ;)
