Subject: TRAINSPOTTING movie slang
Movie slang is important--NOT? As if! I don't know a hill of beans,
but it should be a regular feature here!
The movie TRAINSPOTTING was a big hit in Britain and opens on these
shores today. It's set in the working-class Edinburgh suburb of Leith and is
based on a book by Irvine Welsh. The title comes from the British hobby of
keeping obsessive notes about trains.
This glossary comes from the New York Post, 7-18-96, p. 51, by writer
'Trainspotting' as a second language
box--head, as in "ootay yir box"
