Recommended Posts

Actor John Inman mostly known for his part as Mr. Humpries in the British Comedy "Are You Being Served" passed away at 71.


When I was young I had many a good laugh thanks to him.

I was gonna say lol. Captain Peacock was the last (of the floor staff, anyway) to pass some years ago now (Rumbold may've outlived him; I can't quite recall).


Love this show even still. Here in 'Merica PBS would run a couple old episodes every Friday or Saturday night, back when I was a kid, and my family watched religiously. Good times. Found the box set reasonably enough priced to buy on eBay last summer and rejoiced greatly.


I still have yet to find a British sitcom that comes anywhere near capturing my interest and/or funny bone like it did, for whatever dumb reason.

When I was working at a top government contractor's office, and we were in the test facility.

The standard phrase to use when you needed someone was: "Mr. XXXX are you Free?? 

and the whole place would giggle.

That's great comedy !

      Gardner Dozois, science fiction legend, has died unexpectedly at the age of 70.
      His last review column was posted yesterday:
      The Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author collaborated with George Alec Effinger, George R. R. Martin, Daniel Abraham, and Michael Swanwick, among others. He was editor of "Asimov's Science Fiction" for twenty years and had compiled and edited the Year's Best Science Fiction anthologies since they were created in 1984.
      He was one of PingosHusband's teachers, which makes this personal.

      Lead singer of The Cranberries passed away suddenly on Monday, January 15.  
      Their music was part of what shaped my teen years. This makes me really sad.
