I'm ashamed to say that I only "got" the band name "The Beatles" about two or three months ago. Beatles. BEATLES. Ffs, how did I live so long and not notice that?

Youve lost me, who's Les? was he their first manager?
You ever notice that everyone who believes in creationism looks really unevolved? Eyes real close together, big furry hands and feet. "I believe God created me in one day." Yeah, looks like he rushed it.

I love that John Lennon comment when he was asked if Ringo was the best drummer in the world.

"He's not even the best drummer in the Beatles."

 :D

Back on topic, I suppose I would have realised that GI females were called 'dolls' because of "Guys [GI's] & Dolls" if I'd thought about it long enough at the time....

Somehow I've only just noticed one of the characters in The Red Seas is called Billy Mackenzie, which I assume is a nod to the late great Associates frontman. Probably.

Nemesis. Thanks to 2000ad I grew up thinking it was a masculine name, I found out much later that Nemesis was actually originally personified as a female goddess in Greek mythology.

Venus Bluegenes didn't go over my head but I can't help thinking of her when I listen to 'Dirty Blue Gene' by the late great Captain Beefheart:

"She's not bad
She's just genetically mean"

I allways thought Venus Bluegenes was an amalgam of Velvet Underground and David Bowie

Venus in Furs and Blue Jean/The Jean Genie

could be both then... Big Eyed Beans From Venus/Bluejeans & Moonbeams by Don Van Vliet seem more likely though imho.
