Comic Relief is coming around again soon in the UK. This is from the stage show in 1986, before it became a regular televised event.

At that time all the performers were comedians and known celebrities, not newsreaders and the like. This is one of my favourites, not only because it features Kate Bush.

I had given my tickets a way at the Globe London, so was waiting for those I had given the tickets to in the lobby area, when Rowan Atkinson walked in, obviously in a hurry. I asked him for his autograph. He, said "Certainly!" then he asked if I had a pen or something to write on, I said "No", he did a quick search, then said "neither do I". I asked him to wait, he waited until I got a pen from the booking office- he was so polite and patient!

That documentary has already stirred some interesting mess, massive wave of complaints - people weren' t happy with the stereotypes that stigmatize, as per CH4 news a few days ago.

Re: YouTube of the Day

Another interesting short film from Future Shorts starring David Schneider. I am sure that most of us are aware of, guilty of, or have experienced wandering hands.

What if they wandered of their own accord?



It reminded me slightly of a Mr Bean sketch.

I think it has, but it may just have been on Facebook. Worth seeing again though. It looks fun if you know you will survive, but terrifying otherwise.

Re: YouTube of the Day

something nice if you can't come to Geneva by air....

The mountain is the JURA, which is French there....


This one is quite nice as you can see the Salève, the petit-Salève, the Voiron and behind the Mole and hidding in the background, the Mont-Blanc



(it's for you, DP as you will come by train. There's actually a quite nice view from the train too)

I would have flown in via Geneva and left from Zurich but that is much more expensive. With the Swiss Pass, I have unlimited train travel.

I'm normally not much for baby-cuteness stuff, but this one is pretty funny.

An amazing trailer for kids of the 80s, gamers, and those hopeless romantics.

Re: YouTube of the Day

The Lamborghini Gallardo L140 luxury sports car - worth the equivalent of £465,000 in China - had recurring problems after the owner purchased it in October last year, it was claimed, But far from fixing the problem, the dealership managed to mess up the bumper and chassis when it was in their care, according to reports in China. So the Chinese entrepreneur decided to pummel his pride and joy on World Consumer Rights Day by hiring a group of workers, giving them sledgehammers and letting them do the rest.



I'm sure it'll T-cut out

Pfft, watched the first bit and none of them are really putting their backs into it! Give a bunch of Aussies sledgehammers, and that car would've been destroyed before the beer got warm ...
