here you go  

One thing Iv'e liked about this weather has been taking my mam around the lovely gardens at the hospice for a nice walk and seeing and hearing all the songbirds in full chirp.

Perhaps you should have tried harder at school and be able to live somewhere else?

Moore was excellent- a product of his time. 

Seems outdated now.

Watching some of the really early stuff seemed outdated when Moore was doing his stuff.

I used to really enjoy the professionals as a youngster- watch them now and they are a bit cack.

A nice Roger Moore story

Basically it's because the Atlantic jetstream is right over us at the moment so we are getting all the fronts and low-pressure weather systems, and there's no 'barrier' to that polar wind.

In a normal summer the jetstream usually ends up somewhere between Scotland and the Faroes.

Hovering around 7c according to my garden window thermometer...

It's the 4th of May ffs, and it's raining - why's it so (relatively) cold?

Get some more tyre fires going, get Rivi ablaze, smash some more old fridges up and crack some chippy trays...

 

Never mind 7, “feels like 4”

Roger Moore was the worst bond.

Connery was ok, Dalton massively under rated and Brosnan suffered from poor scripts.

Craig is excellent.

 

Never seen a Bond film that didn’t star Daniel Craig

I gave the heads up for Moonraker yesterday an' all...

You could've seen Moore as 007, having a leisurely gondola about Venice, on his tod, survive a throwing knife assassination from a bloke who popped out of a coffin on a hearse gondola...

He then escaped as suddenly his gondola turned into a speedboat gondola.

He ran into a dead end though, or was it? The gondola morphs into a hovercraft and it climbs out of the canal, leaving behind the baddies in speedboats.

He then hovers it through St Mark's Square, which causes such amazement a waiter pouring wine into a glass continues to pour it over the customer and both a collie dog and a pigeon do a double-take.

You don't get that in any Daniel Craig rubbish.

You are only aware of one cinematic 'Jaws'?

moon+jaws+jump.gif?format=750w

All I can say about this gif is it’s got to be a piss take on how not to edit multi-camera shots to look like a seamless jump.

I laughed and wondered if I should’ve done.

The 'live' version is pretty much the same...

Two minutes in.

The Living Daylights was the taff (A-Ha)...

A View to a Kill (Duran Duran) was Roger Moore's last one, with Grace Jones.

I can imagine she's an acquired taste as a person.

And Jaws was in two, The Spy Who Loved Me and Moonraker.

I think it was infant playground legend that 'Jaws' was a real bloke, the strongest man in the world and the steel teeth were a real permanent feature - probably after a Christmas telly premier of his later film.

I think I was a bit disappointed as an older kid seeing him in Pale Rider with Clint Eastwood and his god-given gnashers.

The only ones really on telly with regularity in my childhood were the Moore ones, the ones with the jock milkman were a real disappointment.

The next James Bond?
