Pink Cargo.....










Yeah Baby.....





Celebrity time.....groan....



Mr Lennon would have been 72 yesterday.....


In 1970....







 From Wiki.....In interviews promoting Amused to Death, Waters claimed that Andrew Lloyd Webber had plagiarized the refrain ("riff") from "Echoes" for sections of the musical The Phantom of the Opera; nevertheless, he decided not to file a lawsuit regarding the matter. He said:
Yeah, the beginning of that bloody Phantom song is from Echoes. *DAAAA-da-da-da-da-da*. I couldn't believe it when I heard it. It's the same time signature—-it's 12/8—-and it's the same structure and it's the same notes and it's the same everything. Bastard. It probably is actionable. It really is! But I think that life's too long to bother with suing Andrew f**king Lloyd Webber.

Money Money Money....






 Meanwhile Anonymous v Shakespeare



Will at the Pub


Welsh actor Rhys Ifans as Oxford in Anonymous

Did he or didn’t he? That is the question. The debate over whether William Shakespeare could write his own name, let alone the body of works considered among the greatest in English literature, has consumed minds for more than 150 years.


At the age of 12, after the death of his father, Oxford became a ward of Queen Elizabeth, brought up in the household of her chief adviser, William Cecil.
Oxford was a champion jouster, nicknamed ‘spear shaker’. He was well travelled, impeccably educated, and noted for his literary and theatrical patronage and for writing 28 books.
 Was Edward de Vere, the 17th Earl of Oxford, was the true author of the Bard’s plays. And Shakespeare, an actor, was a mere provincial frontman for the plays so Oxford’s authorship could remain secret.....?

Then....
