That would drive her to insanity, no joke. I don't think she realizes that I more or less listen to the same songs every single day.   

haha that used to drive my mum crazy... a bit like jelly babies, she liked 'em at first but then I listened to them so much she went right off the Beatles! Since I've diversified my listening/got into the habit of using headphones more often, she doesn't mind the Beatles anymore. a-hard-days-night-john-6

Tomorrow is the 25th Anniversary of the death at the age of 32 of the man I consider my favourite ever comedian, William Melville Hicks.

Tonight, my first night out this year, I went to see American: The Bill Hicks Story at the Curzon in Soho, with a Q&A with its directors, the director of the film of one of his greatest shows, Revelations, and (via Skype) his brother, Steve.

A great night.

Bill was easily the greatest comedian of his generation, and I recommend any of you who haven't seen him in action, you should (noting that his comedy is sometimes offensive, sometimes very offensive).

Here he is talking about drugs (which has Beatles references):

t=344s

Here's the full Revelations set (with me in audience!!!):

And here's the brilliant - and I do mean that, a great piece of film-making I'd admire even if not a fan of his - film I saw tonight that tells his story:

Bill Hicks is the man. Thanks for sharing that.

I have a little time to plan. I'll be cogitating on it between now and the day I take office. I need a theme.

The Beatles? 1960s? Retro? Old vs new?

Very popular time of year?

Happy birthdays for you both then. It’s a long weekend here in WA (Monday off) so it’s even better. I’m going to a forest area with a lake. Canoeing, archery, mini golf and hike trails. Going to good.

Ooo that sounds nice - we have Monday off in VIC the following Monday. 

Have fun this weekend! It certainly sounds like you'll have a very happy birthday.

Ugh, sorry to hear that @50yearslate... I've had no trouble falling asleep due to staying up way past my bedtime ahdn_george_05 so I'm similarly sleepy, though it's self-inflicted. a-hard-days-night-paul-7

Wow, what a birthday week! David Gilmour's is also next Wednesday. a-hard-days-night-john-6 For all you lovely Pisceans, InspiroBot had this to say:

I think Inspirobot nailed Beatlemania, then and now (ie us on the forum), with this one.

I just got one that said

LIBRA

(Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)

honorable spouse, sadistic clone, compassionate member of society

Apparently John is a clone?

(i can't post the actual pic bc I'm on a Chromebook, sorry)

Edit: I just got one that said "Your future is a train wreck." How I love to receive good news...
