RIP David Bowie

Everyone here at Jammy Toast would like say how saddened we were yesterday to hear of the death of David Bowie. Although we were not huge fans of his, it is beyond doubt that he was one of the biggest and most influential music stars Britain has ever produced. He was an artist who never stayed the same, constantly re-inventing himself and his sound; from the 1960s hippy of Space Oddity, through Ziggy Stardust and the Thin White Duke to his later incarnation as a soulful rocker. Where before, artists and groups either evolved their musical style and appearance or remained unchanged, David Bowie seemed to be in permanent evolution. He defied any label. Music, fashion, sexuality: all were Bowie’s playthings.

So Cheryl is getting divorced again. According to yesterday’s papers she is to divorce husband Jean-Bernard after only 18 months of marriage. The couple separated five months ago but she has only just filed divorce papers, an anonymous source has said. She has reportedly cited “irreconcilable differences” with her French entrepreneur husband, who has now moved out of the London home they shared. “In the end Cheryl realised she had married too soon and had been swept away by a bit of a whirlwind romance”, the source said.

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

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 today 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!

If there is one disappointment we are still trying to get over here at Jammy Toast it is the new series of Thunderbirds, made using CGI. It is not a patch on the original series, you know the one where you could see the puppets’ strings but now we have some excellent news. Gerry Anderson’s original Thunderbirds are set to return to the site where they were originally created to mark the show’s 50th anniversary. Three new episodes, starring the show’s iconic puppets, including Lady Penelope and Parker, will be produced at Slough Trading Estate in Berkshire.

Greg Morgan could bear-ly believe his luck when he spotted these two bear cubs having a harmless scrap. The two brown bear cubs locked paws and showed their teeth as they rolled around in the grass. So amateur photographer Greg spotted the young animals wrestling in Lake Clark, Alaska. The 44-year-old, from Walthamstow, north London, travelled to the US especially to photograph the creatures. He said; “Seeing the two brown bear cubs was a brilliant feeling. The bears are so interesting and they are also really cute that’s for sure. A lot of the time they aren’t doing a lot so when you get action like that it is a great feeling.”
