blasts from the past..

It's been a moderately straight-forward day off, with a trip to the park (see the Mini Random album for a picture of an exhausted little lad) and, after lunch, a gentle stroll round the local garden centre. It's good to get out during the day... even if it's only for fairly conservative activities.

On other - much more trivial matters - is there nothing new out there? They've already revamped Scooby Doo and Thunderbirds... but who on earth came up with the idea of remaking The Magic Roundabout? It's out in 2005, apparently, and will be completely computer generated. The trailer has out there, too, if you've got a handy copy of Windows Media Player.

Speaking of things that (perhaps) should never have been regurgitated, apparently William Shatner is soon to release a new CD - his first since the late 1960s. If you've never heard his rendition of "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds", you are one of the lucky ones. Apparently, though, this star-studded album (called "Has Been") is all-new, apart from a troubling cover of Pulp's "Common People" which he sings with Joe Jackson (who, incidentally, has really riled me recently with his remarks about smoking).
Tenuously linked with things that are bad for you, apparently more people suffer from kiwi fruit allergy than previously thought. I proudly count myself among this number.

Finally - returning to more familiar territory than health issues (thanks for the link, Beth!) - is Scarlet FM really the most rubbish radio station in the UK?
