This is the last ever #TweetsNowtOnTV. Jimbo (@JimboStudios) and Fisher (@CFishTank) have reached the remarkable feat of 52 editions of #TweetsNowtOnTV. This is a full years worth and is why Jimbo & Fisher have decided to call it a day.

So here is the last ever #TweetsNowtOnTV – Jimbo  and Fisher tweeted all about showbiz.

Soap Operas – I’ve stopped watching these as they were getting on my nerves. I’m watching Hand Sanitizer operas now

Meatloaf – my girlfriend wanted me to take her to a Meatloaf gig. Now I’d do anything for love but I won’t do that.

Will.i.am – is an unfortunate example of illiterate parents with bad grammar

Offshore bank accounts – these are held by numerous wealthy people – and the dogs of football managers…

The American Express Black Card – is a credit card for wealthy people, like footballers – but John Terry hates them…

Being driven by a chauffeur: is a great luxury – as long as he isn’t drunk and heading through a tunnel in Paris

Polo: is a game played on horses – I think you have to hit a ball through a hole on a minty sweet

This Is What I Like (Part 2) By Jimbo

Things I like and wanted to share part 2!

Midsomer Murders

Midsomer Murders guilty pleasure

I love this programme, but its one of them TV programmes I get into and watch religiously for a couple of months and then not bother with for a while. Not quite sure why I like it, it used to scare me to death as a kid especially the eerie music. One of the first episodes I remember watching is where someone was bludgeoned with a cricket bat, I think I was probably about 8 at the time. I know what your thinking, watching programmes like that when you were only 8 years old!! But I wasn’t always allowed to watch programmes like that at 8 years old, so when I wasnt allowed, I just put some porn on. Only joking…that wasnt until I was at least 9. (joking again). Now I have written the word “Porn” in the same paragraph as Midsomer murders I’m sure that this webpage will get some hits from some fans who are searching for “Midsomer Murder Porn”. Or even worse “Murder Porn”. Neither of which I recommend of course unless you want to be investigated by real life detectives. I now realise that this section of Things I Like hasn’t really had much to do with Midsomer Murders at all. But anyway…I like it.

Fancy Dress and Halloween

Fancy dress can be a pain for going to the toilet.

Now by fancy dress I mean, nights out and Halloween, not in the bedroom fancy dress. Believe me I’m not the type to dress as a fireman, kick down the bedroom door and whip out my hose pipe. A friend once told me that Halloween was her Christmas. She was into gothic and emo type stuff so it didn’t surprise me but since I have got older Halloween has definitely got more fun and I would now go as far as agreeing with what that girl told me. it’s better than Christmas. I don’t get as many sweets or chocolate but it’s so much fun to buy a ridiculously over the top fancy dress costume and go partying. It’s one night when you don’t have to actually worry about what your wearing…unless of course your Prince Harry and dress as a Nazi or you foolishly ordered a Jimmy Savile fancy dress costume. Certainly don’t go knocking on doors dressed as Jimmy Savile this Halloween. Now over the last few years I have dressed as a Clown, Jester, Thunderbird, Darth Vader and last year Edward Scissorhands. With my group of friends there’s also a secrecy over who will be dressed as what in order for their to be an element of surprise. This resulted one year in myself and friend both turning up as Thunderbirds. Which actually and fortunately worked out quite well as we were different Thunderbirds (Scott and was Virgil). The only thing not so great about Halloween is when it’s time to go the toilet. It doesn’t look great in the toilets when your out at a pub and there’s Darth Vader stood at the urinal with his jumpsuit round his ancles….espcially when he turns to you and says “I am your father”.

Hook

Hook – Best film ever!

By this I don’t mean I am a fan of radical Islamic cleric Abu Hamza…although I do like how he replaced his hand with a hook. Although we may share the same passion for my favourite ever film, Hook. Hook released in 1991 starring Robin Williams was based on the story of Peter Pan and how he left Neverland and grew up into an adult forgetting all about his past adventures as Peter Pan. Years later Hook tracks down Peter Pan in the real world and steals his kids. Rather than the police dealing with it (as in most child abduction cases) Tinkerbell drags Peter Pan back off to Neverland for a battle with Hook to win back his kids. It’s bloody brilliant and I can never get tired of watching it, unless of course I watch it too much. As a kid the film made me feel like I didn’t want to ever grow up, but now I’m a grown up the film makes me want to be a kid again and go back to Neverland. This is pretty clever really because my parents would always say to me “just wait until you’re in the real world” so technically when you’re a kid, your living in Neverland!

Goodness Gracious

Now then, now then, now then… the late Sir Jimmy Savile has been accused of abusing young girls during the late 1970’s.  Does this shellsuit clad, trainer-wearing, gold chain displaying, cigar-smoking, white-haired old man look like he might inappropriately touch youngsters?

Yes.

Yes, when it’s described like the above, he actually really does. To this extent, it’s interesting to see that he avoided being outed as someone who touches children by cleverly disguising himself as someone who looks like he inappropriately touches children.

Indeed, the fact that a wizened elderly man used to arrange special treats for young children who he’d never met before should surely have been enough to arouse suspicion? If only we as a society did actually judge books by their cover, then we may not be in this situation.

I suppose ultimately Sir Jimmy could easily use the alibi that he only did what he was allegedly doing because the people in question wrote to him asking him to do it.  Due to Sir Jimmy dying last year, we will never know.

One thing is for certain, and is a consequence these rumours, is that Sir Jimmy will no longer be known for his charity work where he regularly ran marathons. Indeed, Savile was so old that he may well have run the first one from Marathon to Athens and it could turn out that Savile only ran 26 miles at a time because he was chasing after a young girl.

In any event, retrospectively, the fact that he had such stamina is unfortunate and it’s a little known fact about him that he used to be a wrestler – although obviously that’s no longer the most alarming thing about his past.

The allegations and cases of wrongdoing appear to be consistent and the steps undertaken by Savile have been systematic. One women told a news-reporter that she was taken into an office wherein Savile exposed himself with the words, ‘how’s about that then’ – the straight-faced manner of her traumatic anecdote and the warping of Savile’s public persona meant that the news report felt like an exert from The Day Today.

It’s an unusual juxtaposition that something so obvious has the fact that it’s too absurd to satirically poke fun at interwoven into its fabric.  I’m half expecting to see a news-story to say that Savile took a teenager into a room and placed a thick 7 inch object into their mouth, only for it to turn out to be one of his cigars.

The whole episode is incredibly saddening, not just the nature of what happened; but also the extent to which people appear to have ignored the warning signs – the smoke screens used to cover this up are so large that they might have come from one of his oversized cigars.

No-one wins from this sorry situation, absolutely no-one at all: Savile’s reputation (rightly or wrongly, and suspect it’s probably ‘rightly’) is in tatters; the girls who he purportedly abused have lived with this dark secret during their adult life… and the numerous fancy dress show owners now have loads of blonde wigs, shell suits, gold chains and cuban cigars that they can’t offload… I suppose it’s a good job Halloween is coming up…
