Courtesy of The Culture Show tonight I realised that 2008 is the 60th anniversary of 1984. Surely Channel 4 could have made some sort of nod in that direction in BB9′s marketing.
Nah. It’s too moronic.

I’ve just been listening to 606 with McEnroe. He comments like he played.
Utterly brilliant as a starter but more than that…straightforward, incisive, anticipatory and brilliant fun.
Especially when he did this…

I passionately support any Scottish sportsman, no matter the sport. So, who better to get behind than Andy Murray who is not only a very talented tennis player and, no question, the greatest ever Scottish tennis player (Elena Baltacha deserves a mention though)
His win last night was quite remarkable and his passion incredible.
His aggression/commitment which I share in anything I do was noteworthy.
And he got the crowd pumped up and passionate.
So, why is it he leaves me so cold?
I found his pumping unalluring. In fact it was close to ridiculous. I also think he’s a sulky wee git, despite what his mum says.
Och, Andy, I wish I was more behind you. But good luck anyway against Nadal. I don’t give him much chance though. Nadal wins in four.
My regret of Wimbledon was not backing Venus to win at about 8 to 1. Great bet.
