Bits 'n' pieces

PET SHOP BOYS NEARLY DEADED


According to the New Zealand Herald newspaper a plane flying from Santiago, Chile, to Auckland, New Zealand, carrying the precious cargo of Pet Shop Boys "...was within about 40 seconds of a potential catastrophe." What was thought to be a a piece of broken old Russian satelllite hurtling to earth narrowly missed the PSB jet. It turns out it was actually a meteorite. The Boys slept through it. Apparently.

I'M SEEING ROBYN TONIGHT



The gorgeous Robyn is playing her second gig in a month in London tonight. The venue, Cargo, is just down the road. Ha! I shall be hopping on the 55, 26 or 48 bus in about 15 minutes.


DOCTOR WHO TOPS COOLEST TV CHARACTER POLL



This is for the benefit of Dan's Project '76... Yet another poll, just in time for the series starting on Saturday, puts Dr Who at the top of a Radio Times list of the Coolest TV Characters. Oh, and both the programme and mag are from the BBC. Funny that. But I like the fact that The Fonz is still up there. Heeeeeeyyyyyy!


JOSS STONE STRIKES IT LUCKY...



...and sticks a big two fingers up to the UK. As she 'does a Sheena', don't expect her back in the near future. Or ever. Thank God.

I love the fact the PSB slept through it and only realised the next day.

And Joss was on GMTV... what got up her nose this morning. Vare frosty...

I can see Chris Lowe remaining unconscious throughout, probably on a Ketamine come-down. Neil T seems more likely to have arrived in NZ, then anxiously Googled the scientific improbability of their being hit by an asteroid the size of an Easter Egg.
