Today's "Thoughts For Today"

Today's two Thoughts For The Day both come from Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais's seminal 1976 big-screen adaptation of The Likely Lads.

Terry Collier: 'Working class sentiment is an indulgence for working class people who've cracked it through football or rock and roll!'

And:

Bob Ferris: 'In the chocolate box of life, the top layer's almost gone. And somebody's nicked the Orange Creme from the bottom.'

Oh lads, yer actual Keith Telly Topping know so much how you feel...

This blogger got his review copy of The Alistair Campbell Diaries delivered yesterday. With, I kid you not, the following message printed - IN RED CAPITALS - across the envelope.

STRICTLY EMBARGOED UNTIL 9 JULY!
Yes, it even had the exclamation mark.

And, of course, this blogger received the book on ... 11 July. So, no chance of me spilling any state secrets pre-publication even if I wanted to!

Oh, incidentally, if anybody wants to check this out, yer actual Keith Telly Topping has joined the latter half of the Nineteenth Century and got himself on Facebook. Please bombard him with your death threats, sorry friendship, as much as you like.

Current Listening:
Bill Drummond - 'Julian Cope is Dead'
Robert Lloyd & The New Four Seasons - 'Something Nice'
The House Of Love - 'Fisherman's Tale'
Strawberry Switchblade - 'Trees & Flowers'
Dreadzone - 'Little Britain' (vocal mix)
Working Week - 'Venceremos'
A Guy Called Gerald - 'Voodoo Ray'
