1. Peter Sallis has died. He was 96, of course, so he'd had a very good innings, but still. *salutes* Obviously, he was ubiquitous as Clegg and as Wallace, but since I started delving into old telly, he will also forever be The Man Who Didn't Eat Sweets in a Public Eye episode I have watched more than most.


2. [community profile] fic_corner is running again! It's an exchange for children's & YA lit and is usually good fun. There's a brainstorming post open and nominations will begin soon. (I don't know if I'll be able to do it, because summer, but I think it's relevant to some people's interests.)


3. While I'm talking about comms, I'm not sure I ever gave [community profile] hidden_passages a quick pimp - it's a general comm for all things Gothic fiction related, run by [personal profile] calliopes_pen. (I think I was pimping my own comms such a lot once I moved them over that I got too exhausted. I meant to mention a few other good Dreamwidth comms, whether new, old, or recently moved, but I forgot.)


4. I have ordered the 1970s TV series Thriller with my b'day voucher. I don't know whether that was the best choice or not, but I will at least now have a proper screencap-able copy of my very own of the episode where James Maxwell and Julian Glover move into together and bury girls in the back garden and that is the important thing. (I think Suzanne Neve and Gemma Jones may be in other episodes, too.)

I was saddened by the death of Peter Sallis - and charmed that Classic FM decided to play the theme to 'Wallace and Gromit' by way of memorial - not once, but twice.

Enjoy Thriller!

It really was! The first presenter actually asked to be forgiven for playing it, and I hastened to tweet and tell him he needn't apologise or ask forgiveness because it was exactly right.

I'd love to find a kids/YA comm that posts original work. Do you know of any? And I joined Hidden Passages, thanks!

I should've searched first but I'm lazy. Ah, well, thanks anyway!

I was sad to hear of Peter Sallis' death. I was listening to him last week. I should stick to early silents!

Doomed! Doomed! Once you've got 'Thriller' you can never get rid of it;p Everyone is in it. Enjoy 'Thriller's mission to put off Americans from visiting the UK forever & Jeremy Brett's bleeding car and nice heart wallpaper.

:-D And there's Alun Armstrong and Dennis Waterman together being visited briefly by Gan with a moustache, Travis I in a silly outfit, Anthony Valentine being common(quite dull that one, I fast forwarded, James Maxwell's is the best one), bogus made up psychology etc

I'm glad you watched it after your op or I would have felt 'Thriller' was to blame!

When people would have been a hundred and silly, a little, although I have moped over actors who died in the 1920s.

Hee, that gif. "I'm going to go out murdering. Well somebody's got to do it!" ; "Oh, but it's so much bother..."

It was very sad about Peter Sallis. I know that 96 is better than many get, but he did so much, and he always seemed so nice. And Wallace & Gromit are lovely. And of course he did a Who, way back when. I'm quite glad that, many years ago when I first read my Target of "The Ice Warriors", I didn't know that one of the blokes in it had Cleggy's head! It would have been quite disconcerting at the time, I think.
