Last night it was Classic albums: American Pie by Don McLean, recorded from BBC2 (so it'll still be on iPlayer) -a classic album indeed, which I bought in Jan 76, (I wrote it inside).
Features the 8 and a half minute title track, (apparently the last track written for it) and Vincent, along with the best song I've ever heard about the Vietnam war, "The Grave", the song which inspired the song "Killing me softly with his song", Empty Chairs, and Till tomorrow, which always makes me smile, because one of my school friends, Nick Ford, always used to follow the lines:
"What can this be?
Can you tell me?
Would you like to discover why
we're not free, to be lovers?"
With the word "No!" grin

Later, I hope to watch a recoded episode of the Simpsons, Series 10, Episode 10, "Viva Ned Flanders". But: "Can you tell me why?" - And that's a clue! wink

You can adjust any image when you create the link. Just enter as shown below at the beginning of your image. The rest is as usual. You can enter any number for the width and height. I usually use 400 unless it's a rectangle.

The Moody Blues at Gala Du Midem, recorded 24th Jan 1968 (A Wednesday, exactly 50 years ago today) though not broadcast until 1st March that year. it's on the DVD in the Days of Future Passed 50th anniversary set, but, why don't you join me?



A bit "sepia" this version, unlike the DVD!

New series of standout detective 1960s drama "Endeavour" is back on ITV in the UK. Lots to enjoy in the first episode including a great dig at our ex PM David Cameron & quite a few song titles worked into the script: Shot with his own gun, Spy in the house of love, Delilah & I know what I like – I probably missed lots more. Hope we’ll get another Genesis-related episode this series - in past series there's been one based on The Musical Box & another around Voyage of the Acolyte smiley

Since my TV now only shows me a message I should purchase a receiver because the analog cable signal has been turned off, I can now only watch "TV" on the computer.

I am right now re-watching all the old Star Trek: The Next Generation episodes - the site I am seeing the show has only the English versions while back in the days on TV the show was always in German. I am really surprised how proper everyone speaks on that show! Picard with his British accent, Troi with upper-class phrases such as "Seldom have I heard an explanation so well-rehearsed"... In the German versions they all speak just normal standard German, no special dialects or accents. Funny because I am also watching the new show Star Trek: Discovery and they all speak the omnipresent American English.

I recommend this Icelandic crime drama. It's been renewed for a second series!

Last night it was an episode of "Secret Space Escapes" a series about near disasters during space missions. The episode in question was about a secret launch of the Atlantis shuttle in 1988, (Mission STS-27), to place a military satellite in orbit over Europe. During take off, part of one of the booster rockets nose-cones sheared off and "potentially" damaged the shuttles heatsheild. The available tech at the time meant they couldn't be sure about it, so re-entry was quite an ordeal. They made it, but the damage was significant and they were only saved by the fact that the most seriously exposed area was over a steel antenna, and not the aluminium hull.

It was an interesting programme anyway, but my interest was piqued when I realised that the mission commander was Robert "Hoot" Gibson. Robert is a noted Moody Blues fan. He famously recorded Days of Future Passed and Seventh Sojourn onto the 2 sides of a C90, and used them often during missions in a Walkman. (You even saw him put the earphones on mid-mission during lasts nights show.)

Robert appeared at the end of the Justin Hayward Episode of "This is your life" years back with a plaque commemorating the album's 8 million miles travelled in space, and some editions of the Time Traveller box set came with a reproduction of Robert's tape. Until last night, I never knew he had been so close to death.
