Anyone 35-45 reading that PJ & Duncan are in the music round may just have experienced a wave of hot nostalgia.
Innocent times when Dec was Duncan and Ant was PJ, in the auld days before PJ stood for “Pished on the Juice”.
Anyway, as Winston Churchill probably used to say “Nostalgia is for the weak. Bite me.”
Here’s the music round cheat for tonight which is for the music round at the Newsroom:
Awful isn’t it?
By the way- Thursday is now the day when I express my opinion on the crazy world of politics
This week’s point: RECYCLING IS RUBBISH and RICH PEOPLE NEED TO STOP LECTURING THE REST OF US ABOUT THE ENVIRONMENT
Someone’s making money out of recycling and the world’s not getting fixed because even recycling still means making more stuff.
So, until X-boxes can be made out of lentils, the only true environmental fix is to stop consuming things.
But good luck trying to sell that idea to the filthy-minded public who, generally, just want to buy MORE STUFF and go MORE PLACES.
If some middle-class hippy is giving you shit about recycling, ask them if they’ve been on a plane this year.
In terms of carbon footprint: ONE passenger on a return flight to New York = total average UK household carbon footprint for three months.
So if you live with someone and you both go to New York for a long weekend, you’ll need to turn your house off for half a year when you get back if you want to “offset” the damage. Which you would never do.
And isn’t always the rich people barking on about what “we” must do to combat climate change?
Isn’t it always some Bono, Branson or Paltrow?
And how many flights do those chancers take per year?
And did you know that a toff travelling on first class flights creates a carbon footprint NINE times that of a passenger in economy.
They could turn ALL their houses off and they would never make up for it.
But we can stick our environment up our arse, can’t we? After all, they don’t want to sit in the same room as the plebs.
So, Halloween’s just out the way but just when you think there’s a bit of clear water and a bit of blue sky, there’s Hugo in the Monkey
Hugo only appears in Edinburgh when there’s big events work to be done, we saw him a few months ago when it was the festival.
“All right Hugo – to what do we owe the pleasure? Why are you in town?”
Aaaaaaaagggggh. Bastards. Can someone organise a movement to cancel Christmas? I’ll sign the petition.
Anyway, here’s the music round cheat for tonight which is for the Argyle Bar:
Bombay Bicycle Club? Not my cup of tea. A bit Lib-Dem, a bit of a bed-wetter tendency.
Incidentally – Thursday is now the day when I express my political opinion on this blog.
This week’s point: POLARITY DISTRACTS US FROM IMPROVING ANYTHING BY SPLITTING US INTO OPPOSING CAMPS. AND NOTHING GETS DONE.
Are you Leave or Remain?
Poppy or No Poppy?
Cybernat or Onionist?
Liberal or Racist?
These simplistic 50/50s seem to be everywhere these days and while people expend their political energy working out what camp their in and then shouting at the other camp, any ideas to actually fix things get forgotten and dusty.
As the population rips itself to bits with thrashing right/wrong arguments in the simplest possible terms (which go nowhere), the elites continue to stockpile money, power, and the means to survive when the flood comes.
The rest of us will drown and will still be arguing the meaning of Brexit as Britain itself disappears beneath narwhals.
Maybe we should accept whatever poppy someone is wearing or not wearing and get back to destroying the privilege of the wealthy.
Just got round to data-entering your entries for November 2018 Dead Pool.
Here’s the list for the month:
Dick Van Dyke
George Bush Sr
George Bush Sr
George Bush Sr
So, if any of these die before December, then we have a winner. Top picks are Prince Philip (9) and The Queen (7).
A notable newcomer is Glenn Hoddle who, was probably slightly unfairly panned as “hating the disabled” back in 1999 and is now in hospital after a heart attack.
Do you even know what a Chinchilla is? It’s a furry wee thing. Very furry in fact: I just learned from Wikipedia that Chinchillas have the densest fur of any land-mammal. Howzaboutthatthen?
And now: the music round free answer, it applies to the Brass Monkey Leith and it a classic club banger by Rosie Gaines:
We all used to shake to this back in the day and probably would shake again if someone drags us out to a wedding.
Anyway: vegetarians, vagitarians, straight, gay, lesbian, homosexual, Lithuanian people, penguins, right-wingers, left-wingers, centre-forwards , you’re all welcome to the quiz tonight. Let there be no walls.
