Big Wednesday

As I'm off to North Devon tomorrow for a couple of weeks, it seemed appropriate that I found this for 40p yesterday. My love for this film sums up my Hodadness.

Famous People I Met This Week

Well, having survived a week of 3.30AM starts on Breakfast with a slightly moody Ms Kaplinski I thought it only fair to share my tres interesting encounters with the rich & nearly famous.
Monday - Jenny Seagrove. Ok, not really famous, barely well-known. I think she might be in Judge John Deed. Wow.
Tuesday - June Brown. Aka Dot from Eastenders. Didn't smoke fags during the interview. Very nice.
Wednesday - Peter Yates. Fuckin ell. The man who directed Bullitt. Told me Robert Vaughn was a terrific actor and a really good bloke. That was good to hear. Also directed Danger Man. Deaf as a post but super-cool.
Thursday - Roger Taylor out of Queen. All that cash and he wears a black suit with white sneakers. Somebody should talk to him about that. Didn't want to talk about Bohemian Rhapsody - well neither does anybody else matey.
Friday - Des Lynam. There's nothing wrong with Des - all round good bloke type.
I now have to spend three days attempting to get my body clock back to some kind of normality. Hopefully this will involve Lager.

The Masters Of The Pit

A Moorcock classic with a Jim Steranko cover..I pissed my pants when I found this.
On the subject of classic science fiction..went to see War Of The Worlds the other day. It's OK, very true to the book, yet strangely missing something. I don't know what, exactly. It goes for a fairly subtle line in alien invasion, which is fine - the book sets the invasion kind of in the background - but there's no real feeling that The World is involved. You kind of need a bit more 'Army getting twatted' early on - there's no great feeling of destruction being wantonly reaped on the Earth.
Got home and watched The Night Of The Big Heat with Lee & Cushing - now that's a science fiction classic.

So what's happened to S Club 8 then?
I didn't notice them on the Live 8 bill. Though I guess nobody would want them too near Pete Townsend.
