Operation ‘obtain all the Oysterband’ continues with my (legal) acquisition of Holy Bandits. This album has A Fire is Burning, which was made into a rather good Professionals vid. It’s interesting to look at the subversions there - I’m pretty sure that Brian Clemens would hate to be reminded that a goodly number of the show’s existing female fandom is pretty much imagining the guys having sex. Oysterband probably would hate it that their song is attached to a show glorifying state sanctioned violence. It’s an odd mix, but it works for the fans.
Kernel and Unbelievable2, bless ‘em, have made a cute little vid celebrating the 500th prompt of Sentinel Thursday. It’s The Proclaimers and ‘I would walk five hundred miles’. Of course.
In other news, I reviewed my 9,000 words of Big Bang story and decided that's what's there doesn't look too bad at all. This is especially heartening because I'd just been reading some Quercus/Lemon Drop stories, and if you don't feel that you completely suck at writing after immersing yourself in a favourite writer, it has to be a good sign, right?
