There is nothing we love more 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…
Acouple of weeks ago, my good friend Erik featured Chernobyl as one of our Telly Favourites. The miniseries was based on the real-life events surrounding the Chernobyl nuclear disaster from 1986 – but just how much of it is true and how many liberties were taken with the story? We have to confess that the miniseries did give us a few sleepless nights here at Jammy Toast, thinking about what could have been. The initial explosion, the cloud of nuclear fallout sent around Europe and the danger of the core melting through the concrete base of the reactor and leaking radioactive material into the water table and onward into rivers and oceans. It could have been the end of the world – but just how close were we to destroying our planet?
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!
Does anyone else just have one of those fukin’ weeks where you just want to kill someone?? In my case that someone is our Alisha, she is doiin’ nothin’ but cause stress.. I know shes a teenager && all teenagers are tits but she is just too much.. Everytime i wanna go somewhere she wants to come with me.. If i say she can’t, then she starts crying && saying she loves me && likes being with me.. Funny thing is, the only time she ever loves me is when she wants somethin’ from me.. Its got to the point where i hate being in my own house.. I spend all the time in my room because i cant stand being in the same room as her.. If Alisha goes to her room && i go downstairs she comes back down.. Soon as she comes back down i go back to my room, so does she.. She is scared of missing anything but it means i cant even be alone with me own mum in my own house anymore..
Today, we continue our series of posts featuring our favourite films. There is nothing the bears love more than settling around the telly to watch one of our favourite films. Here at Jammy Toast, some of those films have been watched over and over and we would like nothing better than sharing them with you. Our tastes are many and varied as we enjoy films from some of our favourite directors and actors, some of whom we just love everything they do. So today, we continue our tour of some of our favourite movies of all time with Highlander.
On Friday mornings, Granny does her weekly impersonation of Paddington Bear. She gets her shopping trolley on wheels and heads along to Iceland to get a few bits and pieces. Normal procedure is to take her trolley, leave it at the front of the shop in a kind of Trolley Park area and get her shopping, pay for it at the till, transfer it to her trolley and head for home. Surely even Granny can’t go that far wrong with that little procedure. Nice and simple, the way Granny can cope with things.
Paddington Bear is famous the world over, having been translated into 30 different languages and sold more than 30 million books worldwide. This current batch of stories are taken from his fourth book; “Paddington Abroad” which was first published in 1961. It was written by Michael Bond and illustrated by Peggy Fortnum. The polite immigrant bear from darkest Peru, with his old hat, battered suitcase, duffle coat and love of marmalade sandwiches has become a classic character from English literature. Here at Jammy Toast, we are pleased to bring you some more of the tales which have made Paddington Famous the world over…
