Billy Bargain

Can you believe this barely used 1000 W microwave oven was only £30 (around US/AU $50) LOL? A bit of a Billy Bargain as we say in these here parts.

Blast From The Past

I was recently looking at some old music videos on YouTube, from my misspent younger years when I chanced upon British sister act Mel and Kim and their 1987 hit Respectable. Re-watching I was reminded quite why my impressionable twenty-ish, red-blooded male self liked this video so much LOL.

Anyway enjoy this hit from another time, complete with unmistakable Stock, Aitken and Waterman production values.

Hundred Or One Hundred?

Have been quite enjoying the US drama The 100 (pronounced The Hundred and not The One Hundred apparently) on E4. It zips along quite nicely; a short (for US TV) series/season of 13 episodes seems to have concentrated the story rather than dragging things out over a full 22 instalments. I see a new series of 16 episodes has been commissioned for later in the year.

The official logo of the series.

It's not too taxing for sure but quite fun and no expense appears to have been spared. My only gripe is how impeccably turned out all the characters appear to be, even the savage "grounders" don't look too shabby. According to the story-line the heroes have been in orbit over a post-nuclear Earth for 100 years, with extremely limited resources yet their clothes are pristine and well fitted, and their teeth are all beautifully white and straight LOL.
