The skintones on DeMarco's head could've done with matching the rest of the body a bit more.

A brainless, rage-driven monster which leaves a trail of destruction in its wake and has an intelligent half that does all that they can to put things back to normal.

I only know the name (and I assume I'm not the only one) because of the song Like Leila Khaled Said by The Teardrop Explodes. A band who famously took their name from Silver Surfer. My general feelings on current Indigo Prime mirror Tordelback's but, while I don't like it one bit, this is a level of cross-media, meta-fictional, reality-hopping I can admire.

I mainly know the name because of Leela from Doctor Who being named after her.

Turn on the radio or walk into any bar here and I guarantee you will almost never hear any music released after 1976. I swear to God I feel like I have to hear Hotel California by The Eagles four or five times a week. It drives me up the wall sometimes.

It's as if punk, new wave and hip hop never happened for huge swathes of this country. It's so absurd to me - this music is almost 50 years old, it belongs in a museum! Maybe time to let it go and move on?

Picture if you will, a man held against his will in a past that's heaven to some but hell to others. If you'd care to join him, there's plenty of room and it's such a lovely place, (or so they say). Mr. Radiator is a man who can check out any time he wants, but who can never truly leave... The Twilight Zone.

Doo-doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo-doo...

I was going to make an observation that wildlife in a rural setting always seems to be far more timid than in an urban one, but then remembered that's 'cos there's a higher proportion of folk in the countryside that are likely to 'reduce their numbers'.

I kind o' always assumed Shaky Kane was indeed a pun on Chaka Khan, while simultaneously being a (probably self-deprecating) reference to Bob Kane, with added possibility of intention to conjure up a mental image of a stick-brandishing codger.

...and maybe Shakin' Stevens.

Don't know about Middle English but I do know that there's a clip from the BBC's Artifax that has a similar setup...


...and while looking for 2000ad-based Middle English episodes, I found mention of an episode which featured a photoshoot for one of Eagle's Doomlord stories.

Somebody really needs to put more of this stuff online.

I was in secondary school in the late 1980s and early 1990s, and we had NO teaching on any of this. History was all EMPIRE EMPIRE RAH RAH RAH and some bits about ancient Britain and Vikings. We had basically no teaching about how the political systems in the UK work, nor about then then EEC.

That's interesting. I was at high school in Scotland during the same period and modern studies lessons taught us about stuff like the first past the post system, proportional representation, antidisestablishmentarianism and mutually assured destruction. It was when the Berlin Wall was coming down so there was some mention of the impact that might have, plus a smattering about the EU and EEC (but I don't remember exactly what that entailed).

For those interested in Rutgers Guinness commercials here's a list. The one where he's 'having a nightmare' made me guffaw out loud.


There's one more from 2004... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y4EQh-OZrnk

I'm sure I knew of Donald (and Ivana) Trump by the late 80s, and made the connection with Otto Sump around the same time. I definitely first heard of Ivana when she was still married to Donald, so that's pre-1991.

They were certainly both famous enough by the end of the 90s to warrant Ivana appearing as a guest on TFI Friday.
