BBC Radio 4, I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue episode 3 repeated earlier today but can be heard for a while on "Listen Again."
This time Psycho Killer to the tune of HMS Pinafore by Tim Brooke-Taylor. Very good and very funny as usual.

Where did they get the title...



Coincidentally (or not so), the DP of this movie is the same of DB's 1984 film, True Stories.

I'm standin' here on Fremont Street under the great canopy of lights listening to "Girlfriend is Better" playing over the speakers. Cool--the band started 35+ years ago by Mr. Frantz is making themselves known here in Las Vegiosos!!

If anyone visits Cracked.com regularly (a site full of irreverant but insightful articles, usually littered with tastefully placed 4-letter words) they would've seen one of my upcoming favorite internet personality's new videos, "The Creepiest Tributes to The Simpson's" (Michael Swaim). The ending credits of the video play "Television Man", but only briefly.

Dude, their new album Foot of the Mountain is one of the best albums of the year!!!! They never broke up, they just took a break in 1994, and they returned in 1998. They have released 4 excelent albums (IMHO) since then.

Such a shame they are breaking up.

Following last nights Never Mind the Buzzcocks (Music ((occasionally))) panel show, I 'pressed the red'
interactive button.

Noel (Mighty Boosh) Fielding and Phil (Ubiquitous)Jupitus were debating Beano versus Eno :?:

When Noel mentioned Brain's Here Come The Warm Jests... ;) Phil chimed-in with "Yes,but when he
collaborated-esp with David Byrne on MLIBOG- first true example of sampling etc..etc..."

Beano 7 , Eno 9 :respect:

"Rigged-vote!"
