Australian Number 1.

The point is that it was a big song by a band who were really popular at the time and to say I was choosing some 'random obscure song' is bollocks as fuck.


I remember the video for Zombie being played loads on MTV and The Box.

Not a major celebrity, but certainly many on here will have heard of him - Bob Wakelin. So many game covers brightened up with his artwork.

Ste Pickford paid tribute to him on Faceballs this morning. (I've had him as a friend for years due to something related to Naked War I can't remember the specific details of. I am pleased to report that he seems to be a genuinely decent chap, as you'd want your 8-bit heroes to be.)

(My Facebook profile pic is the hand-drawn portrait of me that Ste did for my Naked War plaque (signed by both of them!), which the Pickfords sent me for being the second player in the world to reach the rank of Field Marshall in Naked War.)

Ursula K le Guin. Haven’t read all her work, but what I have, I’ve enjoyed a lot. She was always delightful in interviews as well. Even if you haven’t read her work there’s a chance you may have seen a manga or anime film inspired by it.

That's very very sad. I absolutely loved "The Left Hand of Darkness" and "The Dispossessed". Probably my second favourite sci-fi writer after PKD. She also seemed like a great person. :'(

Shame to see him go, but by all accounts he really wasn't the nicest chap at all.

Some great music left behind though.

I had their track 'Blindness' on Chopley's Awesome Playlist up until a couple of weeks ago (where he was clearly so pissed for the recording he couldn't pronounce 'cavalry' and took about three shots at the word), changed it to their cover of 'Lost in Music' when it appeared on my 'Discover Weekly' list on Spotify.

He would be a guest on Radcliffe and Maconie's Radio 6 show from time to time, always smashed out of his head and invariably dropping the f-bomb at 3pm in the afternoon at some point, so they'd have to profusely apologise afterwards.

Yep, sounds like he realised how much he’d messed up and this seemed like his best option.

Would guess he would get the best part of his plea deal sentence so 7 years, then as a celebrity sex offender he would have been locked up 23 hours a day with one hour exercise. No guarantee he would see daylight for his sentence either as a lot of the exercise areas are underground.

When he got out it would be sex offenders register for life with heavy restrictions on where he could go and live.

Little sympathy really, every one of the 50,000 pictures he had was a horror story for children and their families

That's a wonderful article. I'm always impressed by just how dark the relationship between Martin and his sons is in the early episodes and how the relationship changes over the years.

He was great in Frasier, can't remember him from anything else.

To be fair, he probably retired on the Frasier money. He must have been making millions

He's also dead. This is covered up in the episode where Sam comes back.
Speaking of Cheers, the episode with Frasier's Mum is very interesting as her personality is very different to how she's described in the show. Of course, people probably are going to remember the positives when reminiscing about loved ones, and it's established in the show that she wasn't as perfect as they say.

ZOMG Spoiler! Click here to view!
She points a gun at Diane, which is probably something many people want to do

Yes indeed, but the fact that he was the advertising man wasn't.
