Right, it's been far too indie-boy/girl credible around here lately - what we need is a dose of some proper good stuff.
I know I'll be talking to the right crowd here - but really, can you honestly think of a finer way to spend cold and grey afternoons/your adolescence/a spell of unemployment than with a film, definitely vintage, preferably musical, always with a large mug of tea?
It's a lift-up joy in itself, and then you get the added shibboleth delight of talking about it with a small but archly knowing crew of fellow afficionados for years to come.
Bit like blogging really.
Ah, take it away, Doris: (she can't remember a worse December, and neither can I)
Listen: Doris Day - I've Got My Love to Keep Me Warm (Buy)
This post is inspired by Davy's music to roast potatoes to series - consider it a Saturday afternoon counterpart. I feel an occasional series coming on. Next up, ooh, Rex?
P.S. I used to have this very picture in A3 cardboard prop-up format, as lemon as you like, fresh from Leicester market in the the mid 90s. There was a green Elizabeth Taylor one too. Both lost forever after an over-scrupulous charity shop clear out. Let that be a warning to you all.
