Thursday 8th February, 2024

How’s your week going? Mine’s been fine.

Things I’ve found out this week:

  1. The monks who make Chartreuse have cut production in the last few years, leading to a worldwide chartreuse shortage.
  2. Saying “chartreuse shortage” out loud is really hard.
  3. Corin worked on ‘Maleficent’ but his scene was cut.
  4. The shop two doors down from the Joker used to be a Cigar Shop. It’s getting renovated. You can see the ghost sign at the moment.
  5. Hypnotism, or the principles thereof, is a big deal in counselling
  6. The tail of a Stegosaurus is called a Thagomizer
  7. The main road closure down at Newhaven (and subsequent bus diversions) is due to an unsafe building near theProm Bar, one of the tenements
  8. There’s only one type of HDMI connection. It’s not like USB where there’s all the different varities.

There you go.

Music Round Clue for Brass Grange

This was a #2 chart hit in early 1981 for Adam & The Ants, and it’s in the music round tonight at Brass Monkey Grange.
Still sounds good, I reckon, really quite punk. Doesn’t sound unlike The Fall.
But this was no outsider vibe. it’s what the young girls and boys could not get enough of in 81/82. These guys were proper Pop Stars. Well, Adam Ant was a pop star: all the girls thought he was the most beautiful creature of God’s Earth.
The other blokes were, frankly, the guys in the band.
