How much to get you to change your avatar to a pic of Nigel Farage?
Unfortunately the only pics I have with me and famous people are the one with PTerry and one with Neil Gaiman and me.

* going back as far as "The Financial Panic of AD 33", Roman banks created a financial crisis by issuing too many unsecured loans (LOL) until Tiberius salvaged the economy with quantitative easing (ROFLcopter).  Capitalism sure doesn't like to change much.

I'll take your AD 33 and raise (or lower) you the Late Bronze Age collapse.

Well even though I'm only half way through I feel I have to comment on Episode 132.

First and foremost I'm of course deeply flattered that you dedicated the show to me my playing the song written in tribute to my forum name at the start (and I assume) and end of the show. Very touching.

Thanks! For the record YNWA was the number one for that month, for one reason or another, but who am I to go against someone's weird podcast obsession?

I think it was a re-release of the song (by a Liverpool band) following a ferry disaster on the Mersey...

holy crap i just realised whats coming up in strontium dog :o

It's gonna get heavy!

Don't quite have time to check out Barney, but I'm guessing a time job followed by a reduced cast?

It's fine, what's your problem snowflake?  All opposition is funded by the Jews (but not Israel, just the greedy communist ones) or faceless Eurocrat experts who can't accept that they lost the war so you can discount all their 'evidence', and all your problems are caused by swarms of immigrants, taking our jobs and our handouts and our homes and our Christmas and raping our daughters (unless women tell you this, in which case they are lying). The most racist thing you can do is call a white man racist, you racist.

We need to be polite and meet these good people halfway, nothing to be gained by this obstructive nastiness which is just offensive, you lying dogfaced cuck. Let the men who God chose to lead us get on with the job, all this time you waste worrying could be better spent honing your gun skills so you can stop the Bad Hombres when they come to kill those who,  let's face it,  probably deserve it for being godless libtard queers. My glorious nation first, unless its undemocratic laws constrain me!

Didn't realise you were running for office!

(my coffee shop days are over for the time being, strictly a flask man unless I'm treating my daughter to a babyccino),
What, pray tell, is a babyccino?

was this the special that caused fleetway some trouble at the time since they didn't own the characters or am i thinking of something else

Yep - that's the one.  It was shortly after IPC became Fleetway (to outside eyes, anyway) and somewhere along the line somebody (editorial?  management?) thought that 2000AD was free to use any IPC IP they wanted.

Doesn't look like any 2000AD artist to me.

And despite venerating Uncle Pat,  I never buy his non-2000AD stuff.  So it's not entirely consistent. But creators>>characters almost every time.

So you missed out on Marshal Law?  Shame...

I'm pretty much creators all the way - is there any other fiction where that isnt the standard? 

Anything Cthulhu-related.  Practically any long-running TV series from Doctor Who (1963-) through to The Simpsons (not wishing to start any debates about how good and bad patches of either show, but they are still continuing).

Music / Re: Upcoming Gigs

Having missed the last two end-of-year-ish Fields of the Nephilim London gigs*, I was determined to make the Halloween show at Shepherd’s Bush Empire, and I’m glad I did, because they were really good. I’ve been going to Fields gigs since 1988, and I’ve never heard them sound better.

*Couldn’t make the timing work last year, and the ceiling fell in at the Empire the year before forcing the gig to change venue and date to one I couldn’t make.
I saw the gig the Astoria gig they did in 2007 (didn't realise it was that long ago!) and again a year later at M'era Luna (huge goth festival in Hildesheim, Germany, for those who haven't heard of it) - the M'era Luna one was far greater - presumably intentionally they sang Dawnrazor as the sun went down...

Does anyone know what Prog all that stuff in the snow appeared in?
Was that a jumping-on prog story with a face in a drink?

It's all part of the mega-city language.

Why have pedways, zooms, dunks taps and pongos, instead of sidewalks, trains, pickpockets, muggers and confidence tricksters?

Because it's fun, same goes for Jovis, Mavis etc.

and God or Grud comes in all kinds of pronunciations in the real world.


And let's not forget the sweet baby Jovus.

What the Gup?
