  1. Or TRL Brexiters became furious when anyone questioned their bizarre claims, so they started using abusive language and got banned.
  2. Stephen Sondheim: https://www.theguardian.com/stage/2021/nov/26/stephen-sondheim-composer-lyricist-musical-west-side-story-follies-company
  3. If you have a lot more money than taste, the Graff Diamonds Hallucination is a truly hideous waste of about 40 million quid. 110 carats of tacky cheapness with a criminal price tag.
  4. Tanya Arnold may be tainted by her association with the SLS, but that show's pedestrian format and limited content doesn't flatter anyone. She's always been much better when presenting live game or the BBC's extended highlights shows.
  5. Lewis really caught my eye when Catalans were a long way down the road to becoming a sick joke. Some of the big names didn't look like they were bothered, and the team was underwhelming on a weekly basis. But in that ongoing mess, Tierney was absolutely trying 100% all the way through every game, even when it wasn't working for him. He won't be remembered as much as he deserves.
  6. Carefully avoiding the enraged and probably contrived fury of anyone who takes politics too seriously. Oh, hang on...
  7. Ooh, thanks! I didn't spot this in the listings. Quite a tale - I used to have a cassette of the debates between Timothy Leary and G.Gordon Liddy which were fascinating and a lot of fun.
  8. Someone in Wigan is firing up their MS Paint programme as we speak!
  9. Clean-looking hoops, plus a handy adaptor for ex-jukebox singles.
  10. I expect they'll be playing in a different style under the new coach, so who knows?
  11. Some movie aimed at younger viewers have pretty eclectic soundtracks. I guess the directors know that nothing ages faster than this season's pin-up pop star. Then, of course, there's the Guardians of the Galaxy mixtapes, which are part of the story. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guardians_of_the_Galaxy_(soundtrack) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guardians_of_the_Galaxy_Vol._2_(soundtrack)
  12. Mixed feelings, Martyn? Or did you really not want to do it?
  13. Jonathan Meades - Pedro and Ricky come again. A compilation of various articles, essays etc. Enjoyable stuff, if Meades is your kind of thing.
  14. The line-up of movies to be riffed in Series 13 of Mystery Science Theater 3000, coming out next year. 1. The Treasure of Dracula (1969). An El Santo movie, so Mexican wrestling versus Vampires. 2. Robot Wars (1993). Big robots roam the wasteland and fight each other. 3. Beyond Atlantis (1973). A treasure hunt movie, featuring Sid Haig and Vic Diaz. 4. Munchie (1992). The sequel to 'Munchies', thus flipping the 'Alien' franchise naming convention upside-down. 5. Doctor Mordrid (1992). B-movie stalwart Jeffrey Combs plays the title character who, for legal reasons, can't be called Dr Strange, even though that's clearly what this is. 6. Demon Squad (2019). The chickenfeed-budget story of a paranormal investigator. 7. Gamera versus Jiger (1970). One of the Gamera movies that the original MST3K never got round to. 8. The Batwoman (1968). Another luchador movie, only this Mexican grappler spends much of the time in a Batkini. 9. The Million Eyes of Sumuru (1967). Revisiting a film originally riffed in the KTMA days, sometimes known as MST3K Season Zero. 10. The Shape of things to come (1979). Sci-Fi schlock with Jack Palance as the bad guy. 11. The Mask (1961). Not the Jim Carrey hit, but a 3D horror film from Canada. 12. The Bubble (1966). Another 3D movie, about a mysterious town where the locals behave like automata. 13. The Christmas Dragon (2014). A bunch of orphans save Christmas. Aww.
  15. Lewis Tierney has retired from RL and also made me feel very old at the same time.
  16. Or, alternatively, someone who couldn't abide by some very simple and reasonable terms and conditions.
  17. Sounds like a National Theatre of Brent production. I saw the NToB performing 'Messiah' live, with just three people. One of them was Jim Broadbent, before he really became well-known. Ingenious and very funny.
  18. 186 games broadcast live in 2022 (plus all the streamed matches).
  19. I know what you mean. Some ambient background audio can certainly add atmosphere, but they often get the balance wrong.
