Introducing The Zimmers…

Hold up! Before you read on, please read this...

This post was published more than 11 years ago

I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. Not everything that is old is bad. It can be interesting to see how views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured.

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might very well have changed in the 11 years since I wrote this post. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find pretty embarrassing today.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider highly inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Okay. Consider yourself duly warned. Read on...

There’s something worthy but slightly disturbing about this… A group of OAPs, lead by a nonagenarian, assaulting the pop charts to make the point that they, too, are people whose existence and emotions should not be forgotten.

You can pre-order the single at sjhoward.co.uk/shop: It’s released on Monday – the same day as we’re all to be subjected to “A Song for Madeleine”, at 8am, on all commercial radio stations. I’m sure that’ll help.

Old people rock!! (when you’re not trying to take a history)

I have to say I was shocked when I was sitting with my 75yo Grandma and some of her friends and they got chatting…. their humour may be more subtle than the stuff I’m used to (doesn’t take much I suppose), but I wasn’t far off blushing! And they go out more times a week than most students! Rock on Granny Dot, lol!!
