I owe everything to punk. I may be overstating my case, perhaps, but ah, but the times...

Oh, and some pretty cool teachers at Hazzy High. (Mike Bell, I know you're out there.) Mr. Bell and Mr. Williams, the absolute best guys ever. They had pretty shite taste in music, but by Christ, they could deal with teenage dickheads like me. Any of my contemporaries would agree -turning a mob of little Lancashire yobs onto Shakespeare is the stuff that movies are made of. Those guys did it. Mind you, they were hard lads in their own right. Hard mentally. You couldn't bullshit them.


"This is punk, (my name). Do you know how old Shakespeare was when he wrote that? Have you any idea how dangerous that
line was; why the groundlings laughed? And you think that Johnny Rotten is some kind of anarchist? You might be ignorant, but I didn't have you down as stupid...etc..etc.."

So, okay: Punk, Bell, Williams. With a good dose of Mr. Diggle (Eagles fan.)

Re: Stuff that I like

Mike Bell is still teachin English in your neck of the woods, there was an article about him in the Rossendale Free Press a few months back, he'd got a book published about his experiences teachin an livin in Thailand.

I can't even remember the name of my English teacher.

Good teachers are people who you remember with affection when you do somethin that they taught you years back, an not just school stuff.

I had a load of **** teachers at school.

Maybe I was a bad pupil.

Actually, I know I was.

Re: Stuff that I like

At BRGS we had Mr Reginald Phillips, always immaculately dressed, not a hair out of place, see your face in his shoes...open any Shakespeare book at any page, pick a line, read it out and he would carry on from there for hours if we let him - knew every play, from memory, word perfect.
Anthony Edwards - top bloke, still there as far as I know, used to do the school discos and was into his rock music.
Fred Wild - squeaky shoes.
Miss Pretty - still see her knocking around, 'Put what you are finding at the end of the question' still raises a smile from her...almost 30 years later.

I wish I had known one of the earlier headmasters sooner though, Martyn Morris I think...
I moved him and his family down to Paignton where I discovered his love for old cars and he found out about my love of the old Rover P5B....cos he had one in the garage and a rather special one at that, it used to belong to the Queen Mother, her own personal car.

There were some right ********* too but I won't mention them here.

Moving closer to the original topic....
I bought John Lydon a pint once, in the pub round the corner from the Apollo in Manchester after watching PIL. Saw The Cramps there too, they stopped half way through to tell us up on the balcony to calm down cos they could see it bending up and down as we jigged along..And The Damned, and Jethro Tull.
King Georges at Blackburn, Peter and The Test Tube Babies, The Addicts and othersI can't remember. Seen Anti Nowhere League - they are still touring.



And Madonna...

Re: Stuff that I like

Do you like Phil Collins? I've been a big Genesis fan ever since the release of their 1980 album, Duke. Before that, I really didn't understand any of their work. Too artsy, too intellectual. It was on Duke where Phil Collins' presence became more apparent. I think Invisible Touch was the group's undisputed masterpiece. It's an epic meditation on intangibility. At the same time, it deepens and enriches the meaning of the preceding three albums. Christy, take off your robe. Listen to the brilliant ensemble playing of Banks, Collins and Rutherford. You can practically hear every nuance of every instrument.

Re: Stuff that I like

This above all

It's not germaine but anyway....

We once had an exchange student name of Julie Anne from the Philippines for 3 months. They do the last year of high school at home & repeat it here.

I remember her sitting next to me and asking `Who was this Shakespeare guy?'

Those brought up on a steady diet have much to be thankful for.

Nice one, Canbits. If I may?

The 2012 Julie Anne would now be the one telling the British schoolchildren who Shakespeare was: correcting their grammar; assisting them with basic arithmetic; coaching them in basic manners and etiquette and so on. Julie Anne's Filipino brothers would be showing them how to tie a neck-tie, present themselves for a job interview, and the importance of punctuality. All that basic 'fuddy-duddy' stuff that's so uncool now, they have it in the bag by the age of ten. Today you would be sat next to a far more able young person than most, if not all, your class - including the 'teacher'.

You don't even want to know about the Chinese.

Those brought up on a steady diet of over-indulgence and an innate sense of superiority within a culture where all shall have prizes and where criticism and competition are frowned upon; where a person's sense of 'self-worth' trumps their actual worth - they will have much to regret in the near future.

This does not include, of course, the rich. They had it sussed way, way back.

Re: Stuff that I like

I've tried, but I just can't get into that Shakespeare malarkey. Both my kids have studied it at school an they both explain passages to me when I try an give it a go, but it just doesn't make much sense to me.

The only thing that I remember (apart from the ones that everybody says when they think they're smart an quote a bit of Hamlet) is,

"This pale companion is not for our pomp.."

I love that an I've used it in the pub when someone is bein a bit of a tool around me. Nobody else seems to get it though, an they look at me like I'm the tool.

I've got used to it.
