We're All Crazy Now

"I don't want to drink my whiskey but still do . . . 
. . .  but we're all crazy now!"


Sorry about Tony Blackburn's appearance at the beginning of the clip. Never did like that smarmy, fucking twat. And Tessa Wyatt, what the fuck was that all about?

Slade had huge album and single chart success between 1971 and 1975. Their biggest hit 'Merry Christmas Everybody' reached No1 at Christmas in 1973. It was preceded by Little Jimmy Osmond (hateful little shit) with 'Long Haired Lover from Liverpool' (even fucking shittier) and succeeded by Mud with 'Lonely This Christmas', which was then succeeded by the seminal Bohemian Rhapsody.

Good times!

Nice one Noddy and by the way, we are STILL all fucking crazy now.

I'm off to 'the flicks' shortly to see Where Eagles Dare (really looking forward to the cable car fight) and I'll be treating Pigsy to a Kia-Ora, a packet of Opal Fruits and some Bourneville chocolate, flash bastard, but I fucking doubt whether you can get these delectable items anymore.

If I should happen to get to 'first base', before the interval, I'm really going to push the boat out and present her with a Walls vanilla ice cream block placed between two wafers. I'll probably just have a 'tub' and eat it with a small wooden spoon.

The interval.
Do you remember when they used to have those?
Queuing for the lady with the ice cream tray hanging around her neck and taking the opportunity to see who else was sitting in the back row. Oh, and what about those good old Pearl & Dean adverts and there was always a short supporting film before you watched the 'big flick'. What the fuck has happened to all of that then? 

"Broad Sword calling Danny Boy . . . ."

Happy Days.
Sigh. . . .

Well you certainly wont find Opal fruits as someone cleaver thought it was a really good idea to change the name to star burst?! Why - don't ask me, there are not even star shaped and do not burst in your mouth like bursting bugs!

What about good old marathon now known as snickers!! Whats all that about??

Just stupid!

Cato, I hope that the memories I have inadvertently resurrected have all been good ones!

Suzy, yeah you're right. Why the hell do those sweet making twats think they have to keep changing the names of things. It drives me fucking mad. I just don't like change!

Thank you both for joining in on my Nostalgia trip!
