The award-winning brand of satirical comedy is sprinkled with an extra dash of festive cheer. Packed with Christmas treats as hosts Adam Hills, Josh Widdicombe and Alex Brooker get into the Christmas spirit in a way only they could. The boys will be joined live in the studio by some special guests for some merry leglessness including the stars of Channel 4's Catastrophe Sharon Horgan and Rob Delaney. And there's performance from Roy Wood and his Rock 'n' Roll Band singing I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday.
I was out for a quick bite for dinner this evening and saw a man in the restaurant who looked a lot like Roy Orbison, but without the dark glasses and with a less "robust" build. However, this man was incredibly RUDE to the young woman working behind the counter, to the point where I turned around and gave him a mean look and gave the employee a very sweet, "I'm so sorry" look . Other people noticed it, too.
I'm guessing Mr. Orbison had better manners than this Neanderthal.
In spite of the difficulties and frustrations of the moment, I still have a dream. --MLK, Jr.
I saw a jumper in Primark yesterday. It said 'I wish it could be Christmas everyday' on it.
I am yet to decide if I should buy it and show my love for Dr Roy or dismiss it as tat.
Intrigued, I had a look on the Primark website this morning.
Sorry, Roy, but I think this one will have to be my choice:
Primark also has another llama jumper. It looks like your normal traditional Nordic style knitwear until you look closely and see that the reindeer are in fact llama. I reckon they are llama unless they are reindeer without antlers.

Listening to Sounds of the Sixties the other week I was surprised to learn that The Fortunes (another Birmingham band) did a cover of Fire Brigade for a US release but it never charted. TBH it sounds almost identical to The Move's original, (apart from the ending when it goes a bit Psychadelic) but not sure why they didn't just release it themselves, perhaps Roy owed them a favour? But at least they went to the trouble of shooting a great promo for us all to enjoy!
elophile: OH, Yes! Will you take a little sip when no one is looking?

Grroosss: Well. I discovered r/ELOcirclejerk and the ELO Discord yesterday. Lots to offer (and fans my age!) but too much chaos to take in all at once... Feels good to be back home ::animated-smileys-hug-008::

Helmut83: Is there an ELO Discord? Good data, Grroosss! Gotta check it out, I've been a regular at discord since about two months ago when quarentine boredom drove me there.

Helmut83: I couldn't find it though. Maybe you got mixed up with Reddit?
