Which part appeals to you most in this photo? The hair? The chin? The eyes? The nose? The ears? The lips? The neck? The lot?

Poppy and Pansy Update

My friend who arranged the adoption of my lovely hens has sent me this picture of them with the cockerel, and bossy Henrietta in the background.

Good to see Poppy hasn't lost any weight!



I do miss them though.

Nuts!

I wasn't looking at the TV screen when this ad came on, but the voice was impossible to mistake.



Can't forgive him for what he did to Leonard.

Damp Squib

I only heard today about Oban in Scotland's slight mishap with their November 5th firework display. The show should have lasted about 20 minutes, but it was all over in less than a minute. Enjoy a big Flash Bang:



Actually, I think the unofficial ones are even more gobsmacking:



Today they were going to have a rerun. Haven't heard yet how it went, but I bet it wasn't as dramatic as the one that went wrong.

Nearly a Loser

I heard an interesting programme on the radio this afternoon about what film directors used to do to show they were not allowed creative freedom on a project and were unhappy with the final result. From 1968 to 2000 they would replace their own name in the credits with the name Alan Smithee. This signalled to members of the Directors' Guild in the US and its UK equivalent that they had not been allowed to do their own thing with the material.

One of the directors they interviewed was the (unexpectedly English) Alex Cox, who directed the big V in The Winner. Apparently the film came in under budget, and the studio went over his head and replaced his choice of music with some cheap and nasty stuff they commissioned themselves to use up the money inhouse. Cox felt it completely ruined the feel of the film, and almost used the time-honoured alias in the credits. I wonder if our man knew?
