Thank you to all participants, particularly those from the US, who tuned in to the show and got involved!
The celebrity world has simultaneously been affected by the disturbing events which have taken place in out nation’s cities, and their take on events was included in out usual celebrity catch up. We also talked about the successes and substantial yields of the likes of Jay Z and Kayne West, who feature first and third in the Forbes rich list; which must make Kayne feel better after falling on his derriere during a performance in Norway.
TV promises to suit all tastes over the next few days, with the return of MOTD on Saturday night, and the continuation of the final PGA event and the third test at Edgbaston; which at present seems to promise England the much coveted and elusive ‘first place’ status in the world rankings. New series The Borgias is purported to be a cracker, and that starts this Saturday at 9pm on Sky Atlantic.
If you fancy a trip to the cinema, please keep in mind the following:
Rise of the Planet of the Apes (4*)- out on 11th August! This blockbuster stars James Franco, Andy Serkis and Freido Pinto, and shows that man’s greatest discovery could also turn out to be its greatest threat. A true visual spectacle for all those that loved the originals, and for anyone who is new to the idea of walking, talking apes!
Harry Potter (3*) The final part in the Potter series, this is the film that should piece together all the outstanding pieces of the jigsaw, from Horcruxes to the long running intentions of Snape. If one was to criticise, it could be said that this film felt like it was being dragged out with a little less material than its predecessor movies.
The Inbetweeners (out 17th August) 4* Be warned that this is not for kids, and in the same manner of the TV show, this follows Jay, Will, Neil and Simon through some rather cringe-worthy and embarrassing moments whilst on holiday in Malia. This is very much a ‘boy humour’ giggle fest, but Neil’s dance moves may well be the very thing that transcends this to a female audience.
Well done to those of you who guessed the year as 1983! I truly was spoilt for choice on which hits to select, but went with the Spandau classic ‘True’, ‘Uptown Girl’ the original and still the best and Phil Collins’ ‘You can’t hurry love’. I did feel somewhat that I had betrayed this particular year by not selecting ‘Karma Chameleon’…. so maybe next time!
Don’t forget, Sarah Toomey joins us next Thursday to do an acoustic cover set, and you’ll also be treated to the usual package of gossip, news, TV recommendations, local events and cinema suggestions!
