The latest is packed with freshness!

This is the one where I bore what readers I have away with my complaints about heat.

Thanks and thanks, my good man!

And thank you for allowing me to use you to beat a joke into the ground.

Gonna suck with you being on holiday next week. But, I hope you and the wife have a great time.

1. P Diddy hears your call. I saw him live on The Jonathan Ross Show a couple of weeks back and there was synth up the wazoo. But as for rock? I think over the last couple of years the 80s sounds have made a huge resurgence, maybe starting with The Killers but sprouting out to a whole mess of bands not only sounding like the 80s but [shiver] dressing like it too. Aviators were cool in 1986 but they haven't been since. Unless you're an actual pilot, in which case you get a pass.

4. I love those kind of stories.

6. I watched the first half dozen episodes of Farscape back in the day but couldn't get into it. Did it get better as the series went on?

8. And whatever happened to Loretta Swit?!? What a woman. I guess she's up against Kathleeen Turner these days, and Kathleen keeps winning.

Another great entry, Don.

Bucho: Do you really get the Jonathan Ross show in NZ??

Yeah, it plays about two weeks late over here. I didn't used to enjoy him much, I tried the podcast of his radio show and it never grabbed me, but I think my girlfriend DVRed the TV show to see a particular interview a year or so back and I watched and really liked his style. His interview with Shatner, where Shatner tells the gorilla story, is a masterpiece.

Missed that one. Shame, Shatner is always a great interviewee. Catch his roast on the comedy central channel if you can find it.

My sincerest apologies, and you're welcome, Ken!

In all honestly, it had completely slipped my mind when I mentioned Matty Collector about your love of He-Man. Either I figured you already knew about the site or I just forgot. Either way - yes, you will love that site very much. Good news (or bad news, depending on if we're going by your point of view or your wallet's) is that even the figures that are currently unavailable get re-released every year. So, if you see a fig there that you want but it says "unavailable", just wait - it will eventually be offered again.

I've been picking and choosing what figs I want so far (just based on available funds), but it's becoming harder and harder to choose which figs to get.

Thanks for the reply, man!

1. Yeah, I'm seeing more and more synthesizer being injected back into modern music as more up-and-coming bands revert back to the 80s sound, but I still find it hard to find them sometimes.

4. A friend of mine alerted me to this earlier last week. I love these stories when they pop up a well.

6. I can honestly say that the first season of Farscape was indeed the worst. I tried to get my wife to start watching it with me when I first started back into it, and I could honestly feel her boredom with the first few eps. And I realized that I was feeling it as well. But, I pushed through and have so far found the later seasons to be a vast improvement. My biggest love for the show is about how well the characters develop throughout the show's run. I'm a sucker for character-driven stories, and that's where most of my love for the show comes from.

8. Oooh! Good question! I'm going to have to look that up now.

Just saw your latest blog but there is no link to it here. Great stuff as always, I imagine in the film of your life the role of the old man will be played by Steve Martin (well that's who he looked like in my head anyway).

Just put the link up. The way my schedule works, I usually post the blog the night before, as I really don't have time the next morning to do it. Then I usually post the link when I get to work the next morning. Thanks for the compliment, as always! I'm actually rather pleased with how this one came out.

Here's where I try to take a unique approach to discussing the recently-released film, Predators and fail miserably.

Still haven't seen this one and It is very high on my "must see" list.

Never apologise for adding another review to the pile, it’s always great to have a raft of different voices on a subject to help you make up your mind.

Thanks Ken!

It wasn't a real apology. Just playing around, maybe even at my own expense.

Congrats on making your TV debut!

I know what you mean about summer traffic. The M5 is the main route south to places like Glastonbury and all the main surfing/seaside towns. If you are in any way sane you go nowhere near the M5 on a Friday at any point during the summer.

I used to live on that route and i'm damn glad I don't now.

This is totally going to expose me as an ignorant Yank, and I humbly apologize ahead of time, but the road thing got me thinking:

Are the roundabouts in England as bad as European Vacation makes them out to be?

Most of them. Some have helpful road markings designed to show you where you should be (at the last minute when it's to late).

We never had those adverts over here, although we did have a weried catoon cat that used to tell us not to get in strangers cars. Although the thing used to freak me out so I think I would have gone off with a stranger to avoid it.

Great blog man.
