Oh yes!And I'll see you with:Mud - Dynamite"Nobody knew her name, she turned up just the sameThere was a knock on the door, a bump on the floorAnd the party turned insane"Doesn't get any better than that.
Rage Against The Machine's Bombtrack?
Elvis & Trouble
Smiths & Panic
It’s a thing that’s worth having!
You're right Billy. Its worth getting the bus for.Here! Somebody on FB has pilfered your Icehouse! I smell a rat.
A phrase you probably don't hear very often, "Icehouse are popular tonight"
More popular than they were at the time
Shock..........Julie _ f _ Embro is sooking up over on FB.I must say I've never seen pleading like that before. Has anyone else?cheers frae the dale
You'll have had your plea?Julie is utterly ruthless, and, like many female wummen, will resort to whatever tactic is necessary in order to get her own way.I can pay her no higher compliment.Indeed, I salute her inexorability!P.S. (what did Julie say, and to whom?)
It was merely an apology for an unfortunate remark.
Was strong drink involved?
I take it Glen enjoyed BBC4 last night
I was watching A Serious Man by the Coen brothers (not recommended if you're slightly depressed) but I think I've seen most of these shows before. With BBC4 - "it all comes round again"
Och, I was just joking. The wine made me do it...me and LouiseJuliefromEdinburgh'spal were out boozin' after seeing her younger son off safely to the school 'prom'. He bumped into Hugh Laurie in the NB...assume he must be playing in Edinburgh...even though I'm quite enamoured with Mr L, I don't think I'd like to go to one of his concerts. Jx
Mr L is the castaway on Desert Island Discs this weekend. He was also the castaway on Desert Island Discs in 1996.Was he with Kirsty Young?
Oh! So they do eventually send a Radio 4 researcher round in a skiff to rescue them. That's nice. Jx
...And Dale...stop clyping on me Jx
thanks for the 'intel' A_f_R............http://eplwire.com/neymars-defection-causes-unrest-in-rio/cheers frae the dale
LouiseJuliefromEdinburgh'spal's son also met Bill Clinton at the NB on Friday. I never see anyone really really famous when I'm out and about. My latest 'realalikey' is that fine figure of a superbly mustachioed man John Byrne at The Kings the other week. Jx
I used to see Jimmie Macgregor and people from Take The High Road in Byres Road. Does that count? And Justin Currie in the veg shop of course.
Who can forget Jimmie's six-part series "Potatoes" - you can still pick up the VHS box set from some charity shops.I was at a wedding yesterday and my son-in-law met Billy McNeill in the toilet.
Did he bow before Caesar?
The great man agreed to photo (after zipping up)
living in the posh part of devonshire gdns (No. 2 as opposed to the scruff in No. 1) i used to see many famous people who lived round about.....so here's a namecall of the great and famous...John Toye....Bill Knox (with his message bag)......Chris McLure......Donald Dewar.....further down towards byres road...johnny beattie (the newer wan was last seen coming out of greggs at anniesland with a sausage roll in his mooth LOL)...alasdair gray.....bernard mclavverty....but the most famous is someone i don't know what his name is drives a fancy white car with the number plates D1SC.so he must be a big shot in Fopp or sumthing....and of course taggart lived 2 doors down from where i am now....the arc lights used tae take up the whole street...also a few streets away resides one of the 'glasgow bombers ' from the eighties......i could tell a good story bout him......its a great story....cheers frae the dale
So, nobody spots anyone world famous then. Now one no longer works at The Castle one doesn't bump into The Queen like one used to. I once met Richard Whitmore at a party...not met anyone else who's been on the Morecambe + Wise Show though...Jx
I remember the newsreaders' South Pacific.The only famous person I've met is Jimmy Savile and I can't tell anyone.
There was a whole lotta shakin' goin' on when you rubbed shoulders with Christopher Brookmyre!
when i was a caretaker in the flats in ibrox tce i could sit in the caretakers hut and watch 'bud' logan go in and out of his house.......jimmy logan's father fyi.walter smith once parked his big black jeep next to me.its number plates were unspectacular so that celtic fans wouldn't throw stones at him when driving doon the london road or so he told me if i'd asked.cheers frae the dale
I was in Tennent's one night and Neil Lennon was laughing and joking with Alan Thompson. Within a fortnight Lennon sacked him by telephone. Funny old world.
Horseshoe Bar "late 80's" one Friday lunchtime... Jinky, Bobby M, Tommy G, Jim Craig & Bertie Auld all having a drink & seemed to be enjoying themselves.
S.S.E.B. Glasgow Clyde Area Office, Waterloo St. & a young cashier is balancing up for the day. Suddenly the main door bursts open and in stomps a huge figure. Cashier is in the middle of counting... "Be with you in a second Sir". Customer... "Make it quick Wee Man, I'm double parked" pushing a wad of notes that I instinctively knew was in excess of £1,000.Customer "Put aw that against ma bill!", "ye'll stop the Disconnection?" Cashier.. "Sorry Slim Jim that's the next window" .Premises, his pub at Paisley Road Toll.
quite a few years back donnie munro was behind me in the Q at the cameo cinema in edinburgh...can't remember the film but it mustave been one for the intelligent people.....common folklore has it the paul macartney broke down at the drumchapel services...i wasn't there that day but drumchapel services are the best in scotland...wit a place.cheers frae the dale
Macca broke down just past the Burmah Garage but before the Drumry Road roundabout. Obviously on the Clydebank side of the "Boulie".Devil's in the details.
Lots of fitba' players. Biggest tipper - Packie Bonner.Most miserable git - Alan Rough. Boundary charge? Ye cannae even get the fare withoot threatening tae involve the polis.
MONDAY Wan furr the wummen!
Did I say MONDAY ?I meant to sayTHURSDAY
so, SG, how was the red(ish grey)-haired wumman - did her dainty toes tap to perfection?
Remember Roughies pub in Maryhill ? Originally called Goalposts!
Gaie,Deh ken!Benny,Could nivvir find yon pub. Kept movin'...
He got some bad advice... was the only landlord I've ever met who'd issue an autographed picture of himself with a pint of Tartan Special.
I've probably seen hunners of fitba players, I wouldn't know. But I've seen Andy Murray playing tennis at Wimbledon before he was famous and my son's chatted with John McEnroe. See me, see topical?
YOU CANNOT BE SERIOUS!!!
Which of your relatives is Ann, Norrie? Could you no have asked for Toyah yersel??
Are you sure there is an Ann? We could be back to the good old days of multiple identies...
It's no use asking, Adam, there's no-one here.
i am ur herecheers frae the dale
Am urnie; night night.
