Next week is 'On the Bass' with Tina Weymouth. I doubt if our favourite four-stringer will get a mention.

Aye, I doubt Cronos will get a look in...

The keys to happiness

FYRE: The Greatest Party That Never Happened', Netflix. The story of what was going to be one of the most exclusive festivals ever, but turned out to be one of the worst organised events ever. You have to watch it to believe it.
Everybody's got to evalate from the norm.

Solo: A Star Wars Story

It's okay; entertaining enough, but a tad over-long and more DC-quality than Marvel.

Difficult film to pitch but all too predictably they went for the cash grab, PG audiencew. It was too frothy and lightweight and not nearly darkd and gritty enough; ultimately it adds nothing of value to the franchise imho. Would have been more interesting done in a flash back style, pre A New Hope and post the Return of the Jedi but getting CF and HF on board for that would have been 'challenging' to say the least
No good deed goes unpunished!

No amount of anxiety can change the future. No amount of regret can change the past.

TOTP 1987 on BBC Four

There was a fad for "oldies" at the time, being reinvigorated by movies and such; Stand By Me was #1 and similar was dominating the top 10: Jackie Wilson, Percy Sledge et al.

Clearly, folk were sentimentally wallowing in retro nostalgia when they should have been cherishing the halcyon days of the 80s instead.

I remember that time.  Those songs seemed ancient to me as a teenager.  Odd to think that todays equivalent would be something like 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' or something....makes you feel really old.  :-\
Anger is a gift.

Was watching that too. Surprised by how many of those songs I didn't know! Then I remembered I was at Grenoble University at the time. I hadn't heard the Erasure or Aha song until now. Don't think I missed much!

Whenever Mrs S catches one of these, she says how glad she is that she was a teenager in the 70s as the music on TOTP 1987 is so shite :)


All hail Man 2 Man meets Alf Parrish though, just so Boystown!
