Somethings Don’t Change…


“The Other Half” is the story of two people falling in love.  On the left side of the screen we see the girl’s side of the story. She lives in 1925 – almost 100 years ago.  On the right side of the screen we see the boy’s side of the story. He lives in the present day.  By bringing their two worlds together as one, we see that falling in love, and embarking on a relationship, is a universal story which will keep being replayed throughout time.  While many aspects of our lives today are very different to almost a century ago, the really important things haven’t changed at all.

A very short clip, here it is.

Directed by Ringan Ledwidge.  Client: John Lewis.  Filming location: London, England.  The soundtrack is a cover of the INXS song “Never Tear Us Apart” re-recorded by Paloma Faith. Lyrics: Don’t ask me / What you know is true / Don’t have to tell you / I love your precious heart / I I was standing / You were there / Two worlds collided / And they could never tear us apart.

The little girl playing in the park saw it snagged in the bush.

She pulled it out gently without a tear.

Years later, her husband saw the little boy in her wallet and asked.

She said almost wistfully: ‘My first love.’

He smiled: ‘Had lost this when I was nine.’

Do You Love Him?

There was a group of women gathered at a seminar on how to live in a loving relationship with their husbands.


The women were asked, ‘How many of you love your husbands?’

All the women raised their hands.

Then they were asked, ‘When was the last time you told your husband you loved him?’

Some women answered ‘today’, some ‘yesterday’ and some didn’t remember..

The women were then told to take their cell-phones and send the following text to their respective husband: ‘I love you, sweetheart.’

Then the women were told to exchange phones and read the responding text messages.

Here are some of the replies:

1. Eh, mother of my children, are you sick?

2. What now? Did you crash the car again?

3. I don’t understand what you mean?

4. What did you do now? I won’t forgive you this time!!!

5. ?!?

6. Don’t beat about the bush, just tell me how much you need?

7. Am I dreaming? ???????

8. If you don’t tell me who this message is actually for, you will die today…!!!

9. I asked you not to drink anymore!!

and, of course,

10. Who is this?

Crazy Love!

A minister visited an asylum for the mentally disturbed and was taken on a tour of the facilities by one of the resident doctors. Walking down the dismal, echoing corridors, the minister was troubled by the cries and groans of the patients coming from their rooms.

“I hope that I can be of some help and comfort to these poor souls,” he told his guide.

The doctor stopped at a door and they looked through the small window.

“This is a sad case,” said the man.

The patient rocked back and forth on her cot, sobbing and sighing, “William,” she repeated over and over. “Oh, William!”

“She was to marry a man named William,” said the guide. “And on their wedding day he ran off with another woman. It broke her heart to have lost him and ever since she has been like this.”

They moved on to another door and looked in. Inside the patient was bound in a straight-jacket, shrieking insanely, “Billllllly, Billllllllly!”

“So sad. This man Williams seems to have wronged many a woman?’

“Wouldn’t know about others, at least the two here, Sir,” answered the man.

“Though in different ways,” he added.

“How do you mean?’

“This is the one that got him”
