Doctor Who and the Man From Del Monte

‘La Femme Accident’ – OMD


Wiss-wiss!

Last night I dreamt of my Mum running across a bright green grassy hill, clad merely in a loose pink towel! Discuss.

Today, we came up to Yorkshire. We spent the afternoon in Leeds, where I went to Skyrack and purchased a few comix: Peter Parker Spectacular Spider-Man 109, Marvel Tales 182

Fantastic Four 285 and Uncanny X-Men 201

…and then on to Pontefract.

I went to Gordon’s (or rather ‘Flash’s’) house. In his dusty attic (painted by Flash and his live-in Grandma), we completed our cassette version of Doctor Who And The Man From Del Monte (featuring Ritcherd Gets Beaten Up). Hurrah for Captain Fuck!

We also started a cassette of the solo adventures of Perpugilliam Brown (or rather, Peravlova Brownikoff, according to our cassette). This is called Peri And Company: A Man’s Best Friend (A Tale Of Simple Country Folk). It’s really groovy and mellow.

Flash says he’s trying to give up swearing and acting immature.

And the three bears!
(an expression of sarcasm, often uttered by Jazz Thompson)
I wonder if Gallifrey will be destroyed in the next season of Doctor Who?

Honga-honga! Ning!

OLD DIARY ENTRIES…

…Ace!’

[I liked George; he was good to us, and took an interest in us. I could talk to him about Doctor Who and Star Wars and music and girls, and he always listened and remembered and cared – Ritcherd, 1990]
This time 4 years ago:‘Watched Blake’s 7: Stardrive


…Good.’
