Lucy Beaumont: To Hull and Back. I bloody love the Hull accent. I really love it.
Mars had an oxygen-rich atmosphere four billion years ago. The subheading on this article is 'oxygen was either produced by life forms or by a chemical reaction in the atmosphere of Mars' which seems to cover more or less every angle. Good result though, if not unexpected. Mars is red because it's rusty.
I lived on De Grey Street at number 56, and walked or cycled the length of Newland Avenue pretty much every day. I'm pretty sure Majestic Pizza existed back then, but our house were devotees of the Beverley Road takeaway one-two punch of Falcons Kebabs and Peppino's Pizza. Peppino's pizzas remain among the best take away pizzas I've ever eaten. I'd packed in the whole meat eating thing by the time I left Hull so my kebab experience is more limited, but Falcon's stood head and shoulders above any kebab shop Hull or Norwich (and by extension probably the whole of the East Riding and of Norfolk). Google StreetView tells me both are still going. Indies FTW!
Ultimate Tic-Tac-Toe. Actually fiendish.
We were next door to the Adelphi Club. Acts playing this month include The Kingmaker Allstars. Kingmaker were big back in 1990. It's not all retro though. Look! Misty's Little Adventure were supporting Jeffrey Lewis a couple of weeks back.
Jushin Liger and Prince Devitt were terrific last on Saturday night. It was a great thing to be part of.
