Music / Re: First single or album bought

My first single was a red vinyl Number of the Beast by Iron Maiden. No shame in starting on Maiden.

Around the World in a Day by Prince was my first vinyl album.  Still holds up as utter genius: but when I first listened, it was ahead of my time.

First cassette album was Meat Loaf's Bad Attitude, which even at the time was not the leader of my collection pack. It contains the rather blunt but memorable rock ballad "Surf's Up", with the subtle, silver-tongued lyric "Surf's up and so am I" (with the female backing singers wailing "I need it so bad" in the background like a pack of sex-starved nymphos). It gets by mostly on the fact he's got a mighty singing voice.

I've heard the theory that a vegan diet is necessary for humanity to save the planet!

But this story on the Beeb suggests that if that were to work, humanity would be a bit stupider afterwards.

So, which do you want: smart but no planet, or a few bricks short of a load but a planet to live on? Think about it...

Were they Jaffa Cakes?

They're not actually biscuits. The clue is in the name.

Whilst, legally-speaking (for purposes of VAT), you're correct: the debate around the issue produced an article on the BBC ("Cake or biscuit? Why Jaffa Cakes excite philosophers") that manages to wend it's way to linking the conundrum to a discussion on gender fluidity. But is it art?

McVitie's Victoria selection. The box had pictures of snowflakes on it.

My portrait was on a box of biscuits?

I now can't drink my tea for laughing.

Ah: I was making a non-sequitur.

I will say, though, having done five seconds of thorough research, that I can't tell the difference between these two things:

All the $$ == "Double Whammy"

Is that really what we want? (Anyway - happy to wait and see, because ... I have no choice.)

Actually, on topic: I appreciate anything that ties together characters in the Dreddverse.

With so many Dredd writers now, each with their own stable of minor characters, it's difficult to figure out when I last saw them or why they're important (and it's not like it would be easy to skim through the collection to find them). Sometimes the editor drops a "see prog xxx", but not always.

I know you're just doing it for Death, but every little (and it's not a little, really) helps.

Talking of Mick Hucknall...
