TIL that people stuck in their ways, can still surprise you. My dad is a good bloke, and comfortable with his life. A big old North Yorkshire man and creature of comfort, who doesn’t wish harm on

.....that my wife and I are expecting our first child. We are over the moon!

Who upset the honkey?

I believe it was perennial talking head Stuart Maconie who started the Holness rumour. 

It was, but then Tina Turner's record company got involved so it's credited to her nowadays.

Annie Clark (aka St. Vincent) used to be in The Polyphonic Spree. I think I just assumed anyone involved with them probably ended up dead or missing.

Bit of a niche one this, but after 30 years of being into Ninja Turtles in its various forms of media, I just recently learned that of the four Turtles’ shortened nicknames, widely used in films, video games and so on, there’s only ONE instance (Donatello calling Michelangelo “Mikey”) in the entire run of the original cartoon, and it happens 30+ episodes into the 3rd series.

That Simon Farnaby played an X-Wing pilot in Rogue One, and I just find that so ridiculous that honestly I think this is one of the funniest images I've ever seen.

“Stop that sexy TIE Fighter!”

His character’s name, according to the Rogue One visual dictionary, is Farns Monsbee.

According to Wookieepedia, “Farnaby initially turned down the role of Blue Five after being offered it over the phone by a producer, as he was in the middle of writing the film Paddington 2. However, after his writing partner, Paul King, told him to take the role despite their deadline, Farnaby accepted and filmed his X-wing cockpit scenes on a gimbal with a large screen around him. Farnaby is uncertain why he was chosen for the role but has stated that the makers of Rogue One were looking for characterful faces.[8]”
