Well it is that time of the year again, where we create the effigy of an alleged ruff wearing terrorist, cart this bungle of rubbish around for a penny and then seek to explode large amounts of Chinese inspired fireworks,all in celebration of an event that nearly destroyed our state parliamentary building, but does it sounds stranger then fiction; maybe it is..maybe it ain’t. Luckily todays show is still strange but without the fiction.
In the entertainment news this week it was announced, that there will be finally a new James Bond movie and it will be called….. ‘Skyfall’. So as that will, no doubt, start the mad push to see who will deliver the new song for this latest 007 movie, Twofer’s looked back on two Bond pop classics by composer John Barry – ‘View to a Kill’ by Duran Duran and ‘The Living Daylights’ by Aha.
My Comedy show picks for this week……
