My Dad died on Friday. Ben Spiller was a pretty great guy. I can't claim he's an actual celebrity but it's possible if you are from the Reading area you'd know him. He won the pride of Reading award i

Not what I've heard!

I'll not actively court it, because I fear he'll haunt me (and it's as much as I deserve), but I have already seen a bump in sales. The sole thing that allowed me to financially survive the first

Please elaborate further

That he was an old racist and everything he said was just kinda laughed off a thing and not actually looked and maybe something done about it. Fuck him, he made no effort to learn and looked down upon the working classes with absolute contempt. Horrible man if my opinion which means nothing really in the grand scheme.

Never let the truth get in the way of a good story eh?

If today is anything to go by, when the Queen sadly passes away I think there's a good chance they might take Tipping Point off that day. As if the country isnt already in a state as it is.

I remember during the gulf war that they took all comedy off tele. Brutal times.

Only thing I was ever interested in about Prince Philip was that book about the cargo cult in Vanuatu that worshipped him as the Son of God. Was called Man Belong Mrs. Queen. It's more about the writer's journey to coax the people of the village where the cult was based to trust him enough to tell him why, but it's all a bit mental, and worth a read.

Very sad news, we have lost a great man.

 Anyway, do we get a day off for the funeral?

Doubt it. We didn’t for Smiley Culture so don’t think we will for an American.

Wonder if tonight’s Masterchef final is cancelled then. Not that it matters, the standard this year was terrible and that’s been the real tragedy for me.

They've stopped playing normal music on Absolute 90s and instead we've got Candle in the fucking Wind

Oh God, work experience flashback!

I was doing work experience at Woolworths about a week after Diana died.
I remember we had 'Candle in the Wind' playing on a loop, shelves full of cassettes and CD's of 'Candle in the Wind', big posters all through the store with Diana's face on and the words 'Buy 'Candle in the Wind' here'.... and yet we STILL had pricks coming in going 'Do y'sell 'Candle in the Wind'?'.

My nan bought multiple copies of Candle in the Wind, I think we all knew that person. The only thing I remember about Diana's funeral oddly is seeing Brian May's hair and going 'Oh he's there', literally nothing else.
