sually on Sunday, I play music videos for you all to enjoy but this week I thought we would have a change. Some of our more recent followers may not even know who I am and why I was employed by Davidd to DJ our musical Sundays. You see I was once a pop star, even if only for a short time. I was created Quentin Dupieux better known under his stage name of Mr Oizo. I was based on a dog-like puppet called Stéphane that was similar, but with ears and the hands were fixed. Stéphane appeared in some short films by Mr Oizo (including a music video for the track M-Seq), and had a small cult following in the United Kingdom and France. In March 1999, Levi’s decided to build a television commercial campaign around me, which was directed by Oizo.

I

had no idea that Daniel Craig was born in Chester but apparently he started acting in school plays when he was young. He was encouraged to try his hand at acting by his mother who would often take him to the Everyman Theatre in Liverpool. He moved to London when he was 16, where he worked at odd jobs while pursuing his acting career. Hollywood discovered him in 2001, when he was chosen to co-star with Angelina Jolie in Tomb Raider. He co-starred with Paul Newman and Tom Hanks in Road to Perdition. In 2004 he was cast as a cocaine deal­er in Layer Cake, and it was this movie that showed he had what it would take to become the legendary and mythical James Bond. Casino Royale became the most successful James Bond movie, followed by Quantum of Solace then our favourite Bond film; Skyfall, before his last outing in Spectre. He has also starred in another of our favourite films; The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Today, Daniel calls into Jammy Toast to have a chat with Eric…

appy New Year and welcome to Jammy Toast. If you have been here before then welcome back but if you are a new visitor then make yourselves at home. Whoever you are, wherever you are from, we are always welcome here at Jammy Toast. If this is your first visit then let me introduce ourselves. Here at Jammy Toast we save bears who have been cast adrift into the hands of charity shops and car boot or eBay sales. All these bears need is a happy family home to make them feel loved and wanted – this is where we step in. Our job here at Jammy Toast is to save bears and provide them with a happy home where they can watch daytime telly and play on the internet.

P

eople have asked many times in the past why the Jammy Toast website is black and white with touches of red. The Bearkeeper has answered this by explaining that the Renault Bears can only see in black and white because they have a reduced number of stems or something in their eyes. I don’t quite understand the science behind this but that is the reasoning. However, because the bears have eaten so much Jammy Toast over the years they have developed their eyesight so that they can now also see jammy red – hence Jammy Toast is black, white and red. This is fair enough but what about me? What about yellow?

he following article appeared in the Guardian newspaper earlier this year and announced it would uncover my past, my legacy and the reason why I have a triangular nose. It was a supported article – in other words the newspaper was paid to print it as an advertisement for MAA, the Marketing Agencies Association. It describes how it all started

lat Eric has decided to resurrect his website. He previously started a blog but gave up after only a couple of weeks because it was too much like hard work. This time, however, he has decided to write on his own blog when the mood takes him, rather than daily, and continue with his column here on Jammy Toast. If you want to pop round and say, “hello”, his site is still at the same place; Flat Eric’s.
