Alan Merrill, 69, songwriter, COVID-19.

(best known for the song I Love Rock 'n' Roll).

My sister and mother were friends with him on facebook, and by that I mean friends enough to frequently have proper conversations with him. My mum last spoke to him just a few days ago.

Thought it might be. I'll try again (quite a bit) later. Thanks for replying.

They say:

Terry P didn't come up with that one...

Also i think that clears up the whole brain of moebius snarl in a tiny bow now :lol:

Wait, what?  What did I miss?  Was that in the bit where the Doctor fought the Matrix with her memories?  Someone explain please!

Yes. Faces.

Oh, good grief. How many Batmen do we need? When did Affleck pass the torch in film as well?

They're not the heroes we need but the ones we deserve, (or something).

I still say Robert Pattinson needs to be Johnny Alpha.

Or a similar school.

Ah man, I loved Moviedrome.  It's how I saw Trancers and Terminator.

Also, Cox directed my favourite ever film.  Repoman, obviously!

I'm also a huge fan of Repoman. Saw it five times when it was first released in the cinemas. I remember seeing a version of it on the telly some years later. I can't recall if it was on BBC or ITV, but the version shown was slightly dubbed, so that the words "Fuck" and "Mother-fucker" were, respectively, replaced with "Flip" and "Melon-Farmer".

Really wish that I had taped that particular version.  :D

Alex Cox also oversaw that redubbing.

I haven't noticed an increase in wasps, but over the past couple of decades these facehugger gits have become increasingly prevalent up here from a starting point of zero.

They're also far too fast for my liking...

With speeds clocked at 0.53 m/s (1.9 km/h; 1.2 mph; 1.7 ft/s), the giant house spider held the Guinness Book of World Records for top spider speed until 1987 when it was displaced by solifugids, although the latter are not true spiders

That episode foreshadowed nine years ago.
(SPOILERS, obviously.)

I noticed it as well. I also thought Graham's "What you going to call yourselves? 'Three Idiots Roaming'?" comment was more than a bit insensitive. He's only just met them and now he's dishing out jokey insults based upon the name of a vlog one of them did with her friend who's just exploded?

Just so ye ken ah'm no makin' this up... One link and another.

Also worth noting for future reference that there's a tramp called "Clarty" in the Judge Dredd "Fungus" storyline.
