  1. As I said. It's nearly April, no one is going to need any severe weather warnings and stuff (and if we do we can make an exception) I (like most of us) am stuck at home and can't go out. I don't even have a garden. Every time the poor guy comes on the TV to tell us how lovely the weather is I end up launching a torrent load of abuse at the poor bloke. I did actually go out for that little walk we are permitted to take, but i wasn't out long, didn't touch anything, and kept myself well isolated. Before anyone comes back at me with this, that or the other ... i am not being 100% serious. Although, I do hate these WEATHER FORCASTS!!
  2. You are a big posh sod with plums in your mouth, and the plums have mutated and they have got beaks. You make pigs smoke. You feed beef burgers to swans. You have big sheds, but nobody's allowed in. And in these sheds you have 20ft high chickens, and these chickens are scared because the don't know why they're so big, and they're going, "Oh why am I so massive?" and they're looking down at all the little chickens and they think they're in an aeroplane because all the other chickens are so small. Do you deny that? No, I think his silence speaks volumes.
  3. He is in top form here too.
  4. Pretty sad stuff that. Here's another tragic figure with a bit of a cult following of fans including the one and only Andy Partridge. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Judee_Sill
  5. You remember them better than i @Robbored of course, AIDS is in my time I'll give you, but most of my memories of the 20th century are far better than my memories, so far from this one.
  6. The 20th Century. What do you miss about it folks? Because I'm starting to miss pretty much everything about it TBH. The good ol' days before coronavirus (of course), before 9/11, before Greta's grim message about our poor planet dying, before all the crap we seem to have to be putting up with in the news day after day. What the **** have any of us done to deserve the 21st century? ... Probably best not to answer that, cos i think i might know the answer to that question. As I've said elsewhere... I miss record shops to start with, and lots and lots of other things Wish we could turn back time.
  7. Perfectly put, my friend. perfectly put.
  8. Watched To Catch A Thief late last night, and on and off I kept thinking ... This bloke was born literally a couple of miles from where I'm sat. :laugh: it was quite a weird thing to think, I suppose. but he was a megastar in his day, after all.
  9. I've got the 14 disc blu-ray set, and about another 30 on dvd (I think there are about 8 I've not got, in total). Bought over a fair period of time. Let's just say they have been coming in handy recently Agreed. he certainly was.
  10. I've watched a lot of his films in recent years, and they have tended to grow on me. I often started off thinking, am I going to want to see this one out? But most of them have gradually started to draw me in. The most recent one I saw was Marnie (1964) Sean Connery, Tippi Hedren. Good film, but i am a sucker for the films from the 40s. 50s. 60s
  11. Leave the Galleries as it is now by the WHSmith doors, turn left and head to what I think of as the centre of Broadmead where it all meets up , and the second Virgin shop was right in front of you. Zavvi took over from Virgin for a while in that shop ., yes. Now don't let us get started on Our Price, which i believe were in where HMV used to be in Broadmead, near Superdrug. Think i'm gonna leave it with his tbh :laugh:
  12. She wrote one for me too... "the man with the beast in his trousers" but the BBC wouldn't touch it. The record, that is. :laugh:
  13. BTW, What was the good CD shop on Park street (left hand side, towards the top) further up than where FOPP went in, called. ****, this is getting complicated :laugh:
  14. To clarify ... Virgin went from the Bear Pit to Broadmead in the middle, where Dixon's once was HMV were at the bottom of Union St (but still not certain Virgin werent in there for a few years before HMV)
  15. Yes. But I thought virgin were in there before, but i think @New Dazzleris right on this and not me now.
  16. No no, they moved to Union St first, and then to Broadmead by where the market is now, bang in the middle (well was i guess)and those were fine shops too. HMV went in where the second Virgin shop was, I'm pretty sure... but now you've got me wondering if I'm confusing it with HMV :laugh:
  17. My god she was gorgeous, but I had almost forgotten how gorgeous. Didn't she write a song about you anyway @BigTone? The Man With The Child In His Eyes
  18. That's right. I remember buying tickets in that very same shop for various stuff. Happy memories.
  19. Beautiful, and such a lovely person too. A national treasure.
