And now, you "have no recollection of ever watching that programme, none whatsoever"

Because they got five minutes in and elected to go to Pizza Express instead.

Blimey.  Yma O Hyd, which I had assumed was just my local pub's anthem, has made #1 in the iTunes chart.

You can buy a candle that smells like Gwyneth Paltrow's clunge.

Or you could, but they've sold out.

As a 16 year old, I attended the royal premier of "The Knack" .  I then fell deeply, adolescently, in love with Rita Tushingham.
Mrs B is currently watching something on the teiiybox.  Rita is one of the cast.

Blimey, we've all aged a bit, haven't we?
Bloody hell.  Am I really that old?

Ditto Green Eggs and Ham. :D  Only maybe not imminently imminent. :(

WRT Altered Carbon, if they got rid of the swords & acrobatics shtick it'd be a lot better.
I've dusted all those old bottles and set them up straight.

Packing thousands of people into big venues doesn't sound very sensible at the moment. 


I've still got several concerts booked for the RLPO.  I'm wondering whether or not to arrange refunds.    ???

Well, quite - when did Peter Gabriel leave the band?  ;D

I don’t regard this as a “small entertainment thing”, but it doesn’t warrant a new thread.

Just to recommend Nick Cave’s Red Hand Files:

https://www.theredhandfiles.com

In which Nick Cave replies to questions from fans. Subscribing results in weekly (I think) new posts, always contemplative and interesting and positive.

They might be. But they looked like bikes on a phone screen. To me.
