    The Next Piper At The Gates Of Heaven

    There’s a Led Zeppelin bootleg recording from the Seventies, and the tape machine is near to two people who for some reason are talking about Gordon Haskell, with one of them saying what an asshole he is.

    21st Century American Sitcoms

    I remembered Conchata Ferrell from LA Law and was prompted to check how many of its cast members are still alive. Almost all, surprisingly.

    Not Really Famous, But What A Moniker!

    His first name is more properly rendered as Semyon.

    Joni Mitchell

    The Rolling Stone list mixes the predictable, the dull, and the laughable. It’s not improved by an obvious terror of including too much by old white rockers. On a practical level, it’s far too long. With 500 choices there’s bound to be some ridiculous or embarrassing ones. Also I don’t think such a list should be “representative” or “inclusive.”

    Helen Reddy

    Bollocks to “I Am Woman,” but “Angie Baby” was an odd, rather creepy record that deserves to be remembered.

    The Deathlist Christmas Special!

    On Freeview Sony Movies Classic has this week turned into "Sony Movies Christmas" and is showing Christmas movies all day. ALL DAY. In SEPTEMBER.

    Betty Driver Memorial Soapstar Superstar Thread

    The Brookside "set" was a group of real houses that now have actual people living in them. Incidentally, the guy who played Jimmy Corkhill was in real life a very wealthy man thanks to his investments in property. He was also gay and, so I was once told, in a relationship with the Granada weatherman Fred Talbot.

    He looks as if the lower half of his face has been blown up with an air pump.

    To those of us of a certain age George Lazenby will always be “Big Fry.”

    She is older than him!

    His daughter looks like him in drag.

    Trini Lopez

    It’d be more useful to have a spade now.

    “Simon Cowell? Was für ein krummer Bastard!”

    Marvel Comics / DC Comics / Others

    As said elsewhere, Denny O’Neil was a key figure in comics’ “Bronze Age”, especially at DC, where he was a leading writer of “relevant” stories in which superheroes tackled racism, pollution, drugs etc. All extremely dated now, but nonetheless fun to read.
