Play nicely, boys.

Interesting use of Once in a Lifetime lyrics as inspiration for community theatre last night at the Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester. Funny and poignant examples from people's lives about how they got to where they are today.

As I walked into the office this morning the radio DJ said, 'and the answer is, of course, David Byrne'.

I have no idea what the question was (me: what was the question??? work colleagues: huh?) or even the station (probably shitty Magic).

That's all I can report.

What! An Office of Her holiness desecrated by the broadcast medium's spawn of Satan! Is this where my hard-earned taxes are destined?Those i once elevated to colleague-status, enmired in the gutter-celebrating pastime of popular music desecration!-

Oh.You can listen to the radio? Probably a question about the ex-Talking Heads lead singer,I wager. ;)

I was hoping for something a little more imaginative.

And yes, we do have radio down here in the House of Lunar! 8-)

So.In Brum we have The Lunar Society...Down there, The Lunar-"ticks", "Bug"-let,mmm? :P

If the answer was David Byrne, Watt was the question? You may say I'm Boulton on these gags.
Or getting away with Murdoch.
I couldn't possibly comment... ;)
