A bargain valentine gift

I can't believe that these haven't been snapped up by now!

Bad news at Castle Donnington!

So, I checked out the Towers of London after seeing Donny Tourette (who got points from me for calling Jade Goody a "fucking moron") on Never Mind The Buzzccks ...

Heh, man, what a bunch of cock-ends!

Like Sam said to me in email - they don't even come across as Spinal Tap, they're more like Bad News, but with fewer sympathetic personalities ...

Today's special ...

A funky break recipe, somewhat reminiscent of the intro to "Memphis Soul Stew":

Mmmmm-hmmm! That's good earin'!

Do not do this

I love Doctor Who. I'm so glad it's back. But it seems the BBC is going to do its level best to kill the new series stone fucking dead.

Seriously, BBC, I'm about as hard core a Doctor Who fan as they come. I have a Seal of Rassilon tattoo for fuck's sake! But if you start putting no-talent crotch-flashing plastic gimp muppets like Jessica Simpson and Britney Spears in the program in order to court the mouth-breathing, Sleb-hungry, Heat-reading demographic then I am out of Doctor Who fandom quicker than you can say "Phantom Menace".

I don't want to be forced to hunt down current Short Duration Personal Saviour Russell T Davies and make him sit through an endless loop of Quatermass, Clockwork Orange style, until he regains a clue about what makes good homegrown British SF. So don't let's make me and a legion of other Whovians do something we'll all regret come 2010 shall we?

Fucknuts.

UPDATE: I'm in the process of convincing myself that this is all part of some cunning expectation-lowering scheme on the part of Russel T Davies and the BBC but it ain't easy. This self-deluding thing can be hard.

Carry On Up The Death Star

Your recently expressed wish to see a Star Wars version of the Carry On franchise ("Carry On Jedi Master") got me thinking about casting possibilities. Sadly, due to widespread mortality amongst key cast members, we can only speculate on what might have been...

Sith Ruff-Diamond................................Sidney James (dirty laugh ideal for Vaderesque role)
Emperor Nookie...................................Kenneth Williams (no-brainer I reckon)
Princess Layher...................................Barbara Windsor (“ooh, Luke – saucy!”)
Luke Jimmyriddle.................................Jim Dale (bumbling, accident-prone apprentice Jedi)
Hands Solo.........................................Jack Douglas (cool persona undermined by severe tics)
Seethrupeo.........................................Charles Hawtry (another no-brainer – though tempting to miscast him in the Hands Solo role!)
Chewfacca ..........................................Bernard Breslaw (Chewy forced to don comically unconvincing disguise as Imperial Nurse in hare-brained plan to infiltrate Death Star’s command centre)
