Did You Know?
That the government is compelling the NHS to give ALL your medical data to a database, to be available to 'researchers and businesses'?
This non-publicised event starts in July, but you must opt-out by June 23rd or you're irrevocably included.
of Wolverhampton are opening for long week-ends, starting Wednesdays.
(I didn't see it then. At ~55m they make a statement about Dominatrices. There is also one two hours earlier, but it's only 11min long. Must've been a rehearsal.)
June is Here - and the Summer?
It's about due. Liam Stahlnabel and Maar Floops seem to be popping out videos more often than I put out the milk bottles. The rainy season is over and I've seen few bees. Precious few, so lets have some encouragement:
I'll start with Sonia Vega Dancer (there is a reason for that):
The first one that reminded me of bees was by Cyanide Vice:
Most dynamic skirt I've ever seen. She showed us how to get ready in this Live Stream.
Of course Wendy Ailan also went yellow - in a good way:
And Maar Floops has joined the yellow-fellowship:
And Imma Blackstar - perhaps less apiarish, but welcome here:
And Sonia has another:
See? Started and finished with Sonia - slick theme management or what?
. . . of No Way Out has podcasts available. (N.B. will be in German.) She also does custom podcasts. English is not an option. You should have used lockdown as an opportunity to learn German, Dummkopf.
Petition: Don't Criminalise Paying for Sex
As reported by the ISMS. But you'll have to scroll down to mid-January to find that bit.
Essentially it's being touted as a legal move to protect women - by making them into criminals. A system already found not to work elsewhere around the world, as if it wasn't obvious.
There's a drinks mixer made by people who 'go to the ends of the earth . . . to find Mexican orange oil'. That'll be the Mexican end then?
That bloody Lloyds Bank commercial is back again. But why are the BBC advertising with Enola Gay of all things? What is it supposed to say about BritBox? It does have a rather jolly, up-beat tune, I suppose!
Between the adverts a new series of . . . Batwoman? Holy Cow! Did no-one at All4 watch series one?
And what could be worse than a terrible new series? Well, they're repeating Van der Valk. It's not a terrible new series (but it's not a good one), it's just not the old one. It's the re-make version with the shit theme music. Perhaps they should ask Wendy Ailan for advice on how to do re-makes. ('Add rubber' . . . works for me!)
Goings & Comings
'Toyah at Home'
- broadcast on Saturday mornings at 11am. (The other week she said “I'm not gay - I'm married”.
Priceless. Then she rhapsodised about her honey-hive!) And Sunday Lunchtimes, at lunchtime on Sunday.
Toyah pulled out the (organ) stops the other weekend:
This was on a Sunday Lunch broadcast (but she looks more like an Agony Aunt).
Here's her performance of . . . Donnie Darko? Sorry, just that mask reminded me. It's Rock You Like A Hurricane.
Toyah briefly resumed touring early in 2020, before everything closed down. Many dates are now re-scheduled from July this year. (But you'll have to wait until next year for the Electric Ladies dates, which co-star Hazel O'Connor.) Here's a snippet inspired by her Up Close and Personal show.
Maybe you saw her getting a rough deal in Quatermass on Talking Pictures TV?
