that's the best way to run a business. stay out of the scene. that way you don't care about selling out or wasting all your money on it. kind of similar to the drug dealer "never use from your own stash" rule.

isn't it strange that he wasn't into the culture but loved fisherspooner "for the art?"

the part about big breast threw me off. what the hell is he talking about?

lazy eyez killa

does that mean there is antique cocaine in it?

That damn Branson. Stealing airlines, skiing with naked supermodels on his back.

THIS IS A SILENT FILM FROM 1916 ABOUT COCAINE IT'S ALSO A COMEDY IF YOU CAN BELIEVE IT WE DARE YOU TO CHECK IT OUT

Coke Enneday: The Mystery of the Leaping Fish 1916

The Mystery of the Leaping Fish is a 1916 short film starring Douglas Fairbanks and Bessie Love. In this unusually broad comedy for Fairbanks, the acrobatic leading man plays "Coke Enneday," a cocaine-shooting detective parody of Sherlock Holmes given to injecting himself with cocaine from a bandolier of syringes worn across his chest and liberally helping himself to the contents of a hatbox-sized round container of white powder labeled "COCAINE" on his desk. The movie, written by D.W. Griffith, Tod Browning, and Anita Loos, displays a surreally lighthearted attitude toward cocaine and opium. Fairbanks otherwise lampoons Sherlock Holmes with checkered detective hat, coat, and even car, along with the aforementioned propensity for injecting cocaine whenever he feels momentarily down, then laughing with delight. In addition to observing visitors at his door on what appears to be a closed-circuit television referred to in the title cards as his "scientific periscope," a clocklike sign on the wall reminds him to choose between EATS, DRINKS, SLEEPS, and DOPE.

Wonderful interview - bloody Branson and his airlines and trains. Really hope everything is going to be ok with the planning application that's going through at the moment - long live Ministry of Sound.
