A Good Laugh

‘Numbers’ – Kraftwerk

My cousin, Martin, is still here, staying with me in the caravan. He’s a good laugh and he likes some of the same music as me (Kraftwerk, Billy Idol, etc).

We’ve made plans to go to the skating disco on Friday.


This time 9 years ago:
‘I watched Doctor Who: The Masque Of Mandragora (Part Four).

This time 5 years ago:
‘I got Empire Strikes Back Weekly 136, and I really like this new story.’

This time 2 years ago:

‘My Dad bought me this month’s American Spider-Man comics – Amazing 246, Peter Parker 84, and Marvel Tales 157 (and he gave me an ace tape of The Man Machine by Kraftwerk)…

…I will now try and collect American Marvel comics. I really like Spider-Man and I’m very interested in John Romita Jr’s art. I think I really like the 1960s Steve Ditko stuff too. I used to hate this old stuff, but I think I’m starting to like it. At home I did some work on Issue One of the Force Five super-hero comic Birdy and I have been planning. Force Five stars: The Ghost, Jack Union, Cobra and Ebony & Ivory. It is an Adventure Comic.’
