Well it's been thirty years since the Burger King died. R.I.P Elvis Presley, I know this will come to be somewhat of a suprise to some of those people in and around Memphis... Elvis really is dead. Sorry. I can remember where I was when I heard he died. On the way to Norwich in my old man's Austin Maxi. Some people however steadfastly refuse to believe he's dead of course. Some fans believe that he faked his death and lived on in anonymity that's more believable than the other people who believe that he was abducted by aliens and will someday return. Speaking of which I've been watching Steven Spielberg's Taken it is a great series all about the supposed alien abductions and roswell etc. It was very well done, I don't know how I'd missed it the first time around. It would be nice to been abducted by aliens, please... take me away from all this... so long as they are the nice friendly aliens like the little grey men or ALF and not the ones that give Sigourney Weaver so much trouble. Mind you I hope the rumours about all that probing are untrue. I'm not that sort of lad. Knowing my luck I'd be like that woman in Independence day with the sign saying 'welcome to earth' as she realises they are about to open fire. Of course there's always the hope that I'm being abducted by those amazons that live on the moon and I have to repopulate thier race for them. (I went to one of thier parties but there was no atmosphere).
I think I've been watching too many scifi films, if there is such a thing. Mind you if I was watching too many Star Trek episodes I'd be convinced that rocks are made from papier mache and all women from whatever planet are immediately drawn to me in my Starship captain's uniform ("Is that a photon torpedo in your pocket or are you pleased to see me captain?"). Mind you if I was to be in charge of a starship it would be the HMS Camden Lock from Hyperdrive. Capt. Michael 'Mike Hendo' Henderson never gets the women and most things seem to go against him ....hmm seems familiar. You'll note at the top of the page that there's a petition to try and moan at the BBC to give us a third season. Feel free to sign it please if you like the show (which I do).
Anyway on to the posted stuff. We've got Michael Caine's film Play Dirty for you, then Steven Spielberg's Taken (watch it because it's brilliant), Nick Frost and Kevin Eldon (from Hyperdrive) in 'Sofa Of Time' a radio comedy, Also in the way of music we have The Jam A Bomb In Oxford Street, Various Artists - The Mod Generation. I'm busy looking for the requested reposts but I've got so many dvd-r's uncatalogued that I'm having trouble... but a promise is a promise. So bear with me. Finally there's some radio comedy from the late great Kenny Everett in the guise of Kaptain Kremmen (for those of you who like SciFi Comedy).
