Loved that movie. It's too bad I could NOT get into the books at all.

Me too. I’d listen to Radiohead cover anything. In fact, I’m going to listen to Radiohead right now. Thanks for the idea.

You guys know about the weekly Radiohead concerts that they've been streaming for pandemic entertainment, right? 2pm (PST) on Thursdays, on Radiohead's Youtube.

Yeah they're great. I still want them to cover The Bard's Tale...

As a result, I am now watching the "Sharpe's" series from the BBC, which is some of the most Maximum Dad entertainment I've ever seen.

The Sharpe books are even better, except they are Penguin, and never ever come down in price (except for the first one). Sooooo expensive to get all of them. I used to buy them used as a result.

The “Master & Commander” books - called The Aubrey-Maturin series, are pretty great too. I’ve listened to most of them on audio and the narrator is fantastic.

Read all of them in the mid-90's (and the ones that followed). Love that series.

I appreciate this tweet for reminding me of one of my favorite games - Zooming in on any part of England (but especially Yorkshire) and just staring at all the names of places that are completely real and not made up. Like an old favorite of mine, Goosnargh.

EDIT: Oh! Have you been to West Camel? It's not far from Queen Camel. You should go, it's not a long drive from Norton-sub-Hamdon.

EDIT v2: Then head to Middle Wallop. It's just past Over Wallop, but if you see signs for Nether Wallop, you've gone too far.

I have made NONE of these up.

Do you prefer Upper Dicker or Lower Dicker?

Also, it's a crime that Over Wallop isn't closer to Shepton Mallet.

hey, Shepton Mallet is where my username is from : D

A tribute to these sorts of names, from Flanders and Swann:

Is Betty White a vampire?

Well, if she is, I hope, for her sake, that she didn't suck his blood.
