|And I'm probably being a bit thick, but where is "a-ring-ding-da-ding-ding. a-ring-ding-da-ding-ding..baw! baw!" from?|
It was supposed to be a referance to this guy All hail Beelzebub our lord and master.. ding. ding..Actualy just looking at the Crazy Frog info on wikipedia and the USA was one of the few countries that did`nt buy that Axel F monstrosity by the truckload.Even your fine Canadian cousins were sending that thing rocketing up the hit parade.So yeah a big thumbs up for Americans,..They may never have took to Mike Oldfield in a big way,but you`ve got to give em` credit where credit`s due no doubt about it.And no mention of Italy there either,or any of the Scandanavian countries (despite the fact that he comes from Sweden)..Aaaah Ugo and Harmono the two great bastions of taste and sensibility on the tubular board..But then was that ever in any doubt anyway?
Anyway you`ve just had me scurrying onto google trying to save face by finding out who the hell Altaira was.I never actualy twigged that image was from Forbidden Planet,although I knew it was from some piece of 50`s sci-fi cheesecake.I mean Forbidden Planet to me always sounded like it should have been set in some garden of eden type place or something.But as usual we`re in something resembling Death Valley Arizona and clothed in hugely inappropriate bacofoil attire.And set in the year 2203 apparently,way beyond 2058 I guess.But then Gerry Anderson`s UFO series was actualy set in the far far distant and crazy fashion sense future of 1980???..I mean even as a kid I can remember watching that thing and thinking..."No way Gerry,.No way,you`ve only got about 7/8 years to go here,it ain`t gonna` happen"...But man when it came to the fashion sense of the 80`s,I guess he was`nt too far away after all.And the original Star Trek series of course filmed in the late 60`s,but actualy set in about 1951 with mini-skirts.
