Commercial Break

I’m flat out and frazzled with work at the mo’, (what a cheek clogging up my blogging like that), so instead of my usual cyber-babble, here’s a few words from our sponsors…

The Who – Great Shakes Ad’

Left Banke – Coke Ad’

1966 Plymouth Baraccuda Ad’
Used as the intro to The Barracudas – Summer Fun

David Bowie in Lyons Maid ‘Luv’ Ice Cream ad’
He really is in there – just have a right good peep and you’ll see him!


Holy Beatlemania Pt. 2 – I Read The Word today….

Posted in Batman, Bootleg remixes, Comics, The Beatles, The Who on October 16, 2007 by planetmondo

I’m not normally one to blow my own bugle as;

A – I don’t own any tootle type instruments.

B – There aren’t many occasions when I feel flushed enough to fire up a fanfare.

But today is different – I’m in this month’s edition of The Word!! (Issue 57 – Springsteen on the cover) And am so buzzing I could break out the sweet sherry and spam baps.

I did a piece of cyberspace scrapbooking last month about Batman issue 222, which is based around The Beatles ‘Paul is dead’ myth. This has ended up(re written to 240 words by me) in The Word, and if that’s not batty enough I’m on the letter’s page. Twice!!

I’m probably more amazed than anyone as I haven’t written anything longer than a shopping list since leaving school.

The original bat blog looks like this and the updated piece is on page 27 of The Word 57 which looks like this.

So support your local newsagent and The Word team by grabbing yourself a copy.

And why not treat yourself to this dynamic duo from the Batcavern.

PS – The Batman/Beatles story has even made the cover (behind the CD). I’ll shut up now.
