A Day In A Crazy LifeSat 14 Mar 2015 at 11:59
The Sunday Times have a feature every week called 'A Day in the Life'. If you've ever wanted to know how the rich and famous spend their time this is a compelling read. Notably Marilyn Manson's contribution.

Has Ray Winstone ever made a film with a line that doesn't contain an expletive?
He swears..a lot..kills them...eats them....

New calculations in quantum mechanics suggest that black holes may not end in a crushing singularity as previously thought, but rather open up passageways into whole other universes and dimensions. Albert Einstein's theory of general relativity states that black holes are chasms of space-time that end in a mass of infinite density. Even the laws of physics break down there. The new theory goes against this. A black hole could then be a portal, a tunnel to another place so weird and disparate to our own universe. (Like when you travel through the Dartford tunnel from Kent into Essex)

Had an engineer over at my studio today who has worked for years in television and radio installing and fixing studios. He was telling me that it cost the BBC over a billion to move most of it's tv operations up to Manchester from London for diversity reasons because they were seen as being too bias towards London and the south. However, since they've been based at Salford Quay they have spent a fortune on security because it's in a dodgy area. Unsavoury characters lurking about making staff feel unsafe when they leave late at night and one woman was nearly raped. It's also harder to getting A list guests up there when they fly into the country.
But it gets better. Word is, because of all the above reasons and probably one or two others, the bets are on as to when they will move it all back down south again!
BBC....Big Balls up and Costly!!

A signed photograph of Adolf Hitler has recently sold at an auction in Cheshire for £10,400. It's believed to have been signed in 1925 but was found in his bunker in Berlin just after WW11. Seems a waste of money if the owner is just going to stick it in a draw or glass case somewhere. But what to do? It's quite the predicament. Do you :-
Hang it up in the loo? Anything helps to take your mind off a touch of Gandhi's revenge.
Show it to your mates down the pub?- A sure fire conversation starter.
Hang it next to a mirror? To remind yourself that you're not really that bad... as people go.
Give it to the wife as the gift beyond compare? Guaranteed to show her your romantic side what woman wouldn't want to show this off to all her friends? (I bet knowing my luck though she'd want to take it back and change it for a Mussolini!)

I recently pitched a programming idea to BBC Radio 4 to co present a highbrow arty type show with Germaine Greer. The gig was in the bag until I informed them that the programme should be called "Where's My Dinner"...,..,I'm still waiting for them to call back.
