Today we are going to ask everyone who visits Jammy Toast to just “Talk Shit” for the day. We ask that anyone who visits Jammy Toast leaves a comment on just about any subject they choose. Funny or sad, true or false, real or fake; we don’t give a shit as long as it is entertaining and doesn’t really hurt anyone. We ask you to do this because we are too busy to think of anything else to post – hopefully everyone will like the freedom to whine and bitch. The rules are pretty simple to explain – basically, anything goes!
The whole of Jammy Toast was devastated last night to hear of the death of our friend Michael Bond. Michael was the creator of the beloved Paddington Bear and died peacefully at his home on Tuesday following a short illness at the age of 91. Michael published his first book, A Bear Called Paddington, in 1958 – two years before even Bimbo and I were born. The marmalade-loving bear from “deepest, darkest Peru” who comes to live in London, went on to inspire a series of books, an animated TV series and a successful 2014 film.
As you all will know, here at Jammy Toast we have been researching disused railway stations for our serious ok old Wirral railways. To be honest, we have found it very interesting and we have become quite interested in train spotting – or more to the point, train station spotting. So we were quite interested when we heard about Shippea Hill Station in Cambridgeshire. The station has been named the least used in the country for the second year in a row, with just 12 people using it throughout the whole of last year.
Our favourite telly character has been at it again releasing two more adverts. Moose has made a return along with his owner Charlie. Since he first appeared last year, Moose has been the face of ClearScore’s TV adverts and so far he’s starred in six of their TV ads helping Charlie check his credit score and stay on top of his finances. Now he has added another two adverts to the list; one where he is out for a walk in the park and another where he is thinking of popping the question to his long-standing girlfriend, Lauretta.
There are some right lunatics around these days but no more so than the one we are about to tell you about. Someone genuinely thought it was necessary to call 999 when they spotted Her Majesty sitting in the back seat of her car – without a seat belt on. Not only was this a bad idea as 999 is strictly reserved for emergencies, but it is also impossible to prosecute the Queen for any offence criminal or civil. The caller was phoning from West Yorkshire so they got through to the local police force, even though the monarch was travelling through London.
There is nothing more we love here at Jammy Toast than listening to some of our favourite tunes. From time to time we will post a music video from an artist or genre that we think will be enjoyable to you; our friends. We often feature music that you may not have come across before, or music that maybe you just missed the first time around. Try and listen with an open mind, you never know, you may find something you can add to your iPod. If you have any music videos you would like us to feature then drop us a line – we are always happy to listen to requests but we cannot promise to feature everyone’s favourite…
Last night Davidd allowed us all to stay up late and watch Radiohead at Glastonbury. It was indeed late because they didn’t start their coverage until 10pm so it was going to be getting on for 1am before they finished. We are all great fans of Radiohead here at Jammy Toast and it has to be said they did not disappoint any of us. Captivating, inspiring and achingly stunning – Radiohead delivered a typically Radioheadesq sort of set for the festival’s opening night.
