'The Shining' , but was named 'Doctor Sleep' .
I mean I knew the differences between the movie 'The Shining' and the book, especially how Kubrick left the Overlook Hotel standing in the movie and King blew it up in the novel, so I get why the director of 'Doctor Sleep' had the characters in the movie go back to the Overlook and do what they did there.
But with having to buy a copy of the novel 'Doctor Sleep' and read it to find out the difference to this new movie and the new novel I was hoping to find a podcast that summarized the the main points of DS.
And I did.
I found a podcast called 'Stephen King Cast', where some guy just about read the whole book to me and his listeners while every now and then sucking his snot filled nose back into his throat thinking this wouldn't make listeners like me want to be sick with revulsion.

What luck, the day that marks my old wedding anniversary.
At least I don't have to buy an anniversary gift for a woman who really never deserved any over those years of married "bliss":-)
And thanks Stephen for choosing 'The Beatles' song (which I've never really ever liked) 'She Loves You' ... yeah, yeah, yeah?
A song released before I was born ... just.
I like how king thinks along the same lines that I do, in that everything in life happens for a reason, even if it ain't all good.
Oddly enough, as I was listening to
the King podcast at the BBC archive, it ended and then went to the BBC live link and it was announced on the BBC news that
Paul McCartney will be headlining the Glastonbury Festival next year and playing the Pyramid Stage.
I hope he won't be singing 'She Loves You', not that I'll be there anyway.
I'll be on my island and king of all I survey;-)
What would you take on your Desert Island Discs?
Here's looking at you kid;-)
