Rodimus is the cat, surely? Sound and fury signifying nothing upstairs. Magnus's insistence on the rules makes him a murdery Rimmer, but I agree he's also got a touch of the Kryten about him. Dunno about a Lister, mind. Lister's supposed to sum up humanity; the best and the worst of us. He has an ea...

I was reading some old TMUK stories the other day and I must admit, it jarred me slightly when Swerve showed up and behaved...like a metallurgist. He was doing his job and everything!

here's this sort-of distrust of non-American material (a common thing in the fandom 10-15 years ago) running through the place (UK stories which dovetail beautifully with US material are treated like an insane 'fake' spin-off but toy bios which outright contradict minor things like films are given ...

It's just occurred to me that James doesn't name things by accident - so there must be a reason her homeworld is called Prion. It can't just be so I can make an appalling joke.

My dad once caught Lalla Ward shoplifting when he used to be a store detective, many years ago. Not quite as tasty an anecdote, really :(

Swayze. (Mr Biffo is still writing - look here: http://www.digitiser2000.com/ ) The best Saint Etienne songs to dance to? 'Join Our Club'; 'Angel' (the way out west remix); 'Hug My Soul'; 'Stars Above Us'; 'Popular'; 'We're in the City'. (I'm obsessed. James told me on Twitter that he very nearly di...

Death's Head has known about this since February! I had a drink with Death's Head the same week Roche told him about this and he kept stum and was all "Yeah, I was hanging around with Nick Roche.

It's by Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie. McKelvie draws possibly the most beautiful, stylish people in the world and Kieron Gillen is known for, among other things, bringing back Death's Head when he was over at Marvel (and further confusing Death's Head's timeline!)

Actually, all this reminds me that back in the TMUK days a few of us got into the habit of using Manics' songs as our story titles, many years before Phonogram made me go back and listen to Generation Terrorists again.

I do not like your alternate functionist reality where The Smiths are not actually popular.
:)
There is no way that 'Where The Wild Roses Grow' didn't get played.
Yes.

I was just overjoyed to see Saint Etienne namechecked in an official Transformers comic. I might have wet myself a little.

Yeah, that was a respectable list of songs there.

Edit: And there was no Divine Comedy, so it's not like you can accuse James of being too self-indulgent.

I enjoyed it. Made me feel all nice inside. To see the likes of the Smiths and Saint Etienne namechecked in an official Transformers comic blows my mind. As, indeed, does the use of the word 'arse'

A Geoff Senior skin would be quite nice.

A Delbo skin would be amazing.

Yeah, more Ravage is always a good thing. More Roberts' Ravage, in any case!
