There's a pub not far from here that instead of having piped music in the loos, has Round the Horn on an endless loop.

The other day, I saw a woman with strikingly red hair in Borough.  I thought she looked like Tori Amos.

This would be a pointless comment, were it not that Tori Amos is in the area putting together a musical.

Yup.  I saw Tori Amos and was struck by her resemblance to herself. :facepalm:

Does she look as haunting in the flesh?

There's an offer on Amazon at the moment - if you buy all the Adam and the Ants sheet music they'll throw in a stand and deliver.

I've just watched a french film (Point Blank) featureing actor Roschdy Zem.

For over 20 years I had thought that only mattresses were called Zem. (one for H2G2 fans, sorry)

Dez has introduced me to a television programme called "Pointless".

Just now we watched a "celebrity" episode involving 8 "celebrities".

I recognised only one (Nerys Hughes) and had heard of just one other (Martin Jarvis) but I didn't know what he looked like.

I did, however, get a "pointless" answer in the form o Port of Spain when it came to naming Caribbean capitals.
Oh, Bach without any doubt. Bach every time for me.

There was an excellent Marvin Gaye documentary on BBC4 earlier.

Seems somehow appropriate not to hear about it first hand.

I'm just watching TOTP 1978 from earlier. Legs & Co are dancing to Instant Replay wearing very tiny very glittery bikinis. The cameramen are doing lots of close-ups.

Well, Alex Turner of the Arctic Monkeys turned up for the interview on R6M with Stuart Maconie.  And he seems to have got over any nerves he might have had about speaking on the radio.  In fact, he could barely have been more relaxed.  I wonder what his secret is?

Top-up TV are ceasing broadcasting next week so I have succumbed to the Murdoch empire*. The Sky installers have just been and I am marvelling - if marvelling can be tinged with horror - at the range of channels available to me. *never leaves house again*






*I did tell them that I'm only moving to Sky because Top-up TV are no more and I still think they're evil and I hate Rupert Murdoch and all his works. I don't think they care as long as they get my money.

We have a screen set up on top of a dvd player. Computer is below that.

Watching on computer isn't any different from watching on dvd

Even if I hadn't heard that interview so know exactly what you're hinting at, your innuendo isn't exactly subtle! ;D

Given that he went down ill a couple of days later, I suspect he'd been on the Benylin. Rather a lot of it.

I felt that it was a bit of a mistake having Godfrey Bloom on HIGNFY this evening. OK, he made an arse of himself and was guilty of some spontaneous racism, asking why Krishnan Guru-Murthy had an Irish name and a Welsh accent. Victoria Coren was seriously unimpressed with his raw prejudice.

People like Bloom are really at their best when you can neither hear nor see them.
