Today we are going to ask everyone who visits Jammy Toast to just “Talk Shit”. It has become a bit of a Jammy Toast tradition whereby we ask everyone who visits us to leave 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’s feelings. We usually ask you to do this because we are too lazy to think of anything else to post. However, people generally enjoy the freedom to whine and bitch. The rules are simple to explain – anything goes!

Jammy Toast Always Remembers

Away from the Cenotaph, the Chelsea Pensioners stood at their windows today.

Remembrance Sunday felt the same this morning but also felt different – if that makes sense. There as always at the centre of the day was the Cenotaph, the simple slab of stone erected a hundred years ago to act as a memorial to the dead of all armed conflicts. The Queen was there as always watching from the Foreign Office balcony. The two minutes silence, the wreath laying and the remembering so much sacrifice and loss. What was missing was the thousands of members of public who normally travel to Whitehall from all corners of the country. Also missing were many veterans who march past the Cenotaph after laying their wreaths each year. Thankfully, the sadness and feelings of gratitude to all those who lost their lives was still there too.

Knockin’ On Dave’s Door

Bob Dylan & Dave Stewart pictured together in a pub in London.

Inoticed a series of programmes on Sky over the weekend called Urban Myths. The first one of the myths was the story of Bob Dylan coming to England to visit his friend Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics. Dave had collaborated with Bob on some projects in Malibu, California, since the mid-1980s and this urban myth was the story of Bob coming over to England to meet Dave on his home patch for the first time. Dave lived in Randolph Avenue in Maida Vale and he had given Bob his address. After Bob landed at Heathrow Airport, he apparently relayed the address to a taxi driver who, somehow, got the address mixed up.

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
