  1. Not available right now, but I did enjoy reading through this the last couple of months: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/1681885670/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 This is focused a lot more on chocolate, but does include a lot of very good cake recipes in it too along with the mousses, creams, and ganaches: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Encyclopedia-Chocolate-Frédéric-Chocolat-Valrhona/dp/2080203665/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=valrhona+chocolate+book&qid=1608691233&s=books&sr=1-1 (the rum & honey chocolate cake contained within is pretty am
  2. Develop a taste for Canadian Rye!
  3. I bought the Play For Today set as soon as it was announced, even though I have most of the plays on it in dodgy YouTube rips. I'm hoping a Volume 2 will come out with the new transfer of Double Dare on it if nothing else. Indicator was my discovery of the year - I think I ended up with about five or six titles in the end, including a couple of late-period Dennis Potter films and the new transfer of Britannia Hospital. I'm definitely getting lazier though; I rented Planes, Trains, and Automobiles over the weekend rather than fish the DVD out of the cupboard…
  4. So, there's just a *touch* of difference here in terms of budget and such, but a good companion piece to this is an old BBC dramatization of the Oz Trial back in 1970s UK:
  5. Ah, that really sucks about Ruegger and the others not being involved.
  6. If you can get hold of it in the UK, the Bulleit Blenders Select (likely a mix of contract-distilled Four Roses and Jim Beam bourbon) is a good upgrade. Wild Turkey's Rare Breed is amazing - probably the best bourbon in its price class - definitely worth a try. It's a bit stronger than Bulleit, mind you (116 proof versus 90).
  7. You'll can also note that Keith Boak, director of Rose / Aliens of London / World War Three (the first filming block of 2005) has never directed an episode of Who since.
  8. I actually have a bit of a soft spot for the Muppets From Space / It's a Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie / Wizard of Oz era. Pepe continues to be great in all of them, and they're just totally bizarre - the CGI dancing chicken in Oz and well, bouncer Beaker:
  9. I *did* win an Egon Fright Features toy from that release! Except in the meantime, my birthday came around and I ended up with two. I'm so sorry.
  10. As somebody who was on the WEF back in the day, this is not that much of a surprise. There was a rumour floating around of a webcam transcript that somebody put up between their girlfriend and Ellis which pretty much touched on the same bases as the stories coming out yesterday.
  11. One thing has always puzzled me - were Speedlock, Alcatraz, et al, really any good at preventing copying? Or did my dad just have a very good hifi setup? Because I never ever had a problem with my tape-tape copying, no matter what the game was…
