We went to our first sixtieth birthday party last night. It was good, but it was full of people who didn't want anybody to be sixty.

The latest British Gas advert features a Queen song, at least the intro of a Queen song that for the life of me I can't remember. This is certainly a subliminal triumph for the advertising agency that dreamt it up. Subliminally good records are rare pleasures, in particular I always get a bit of a rush from a bit of Depeche Mode, but I've never bought any of their records. Neither do I own anything by Heart, but 'Barracuda' could always make my day. Plus I have the image of the two sirens of Heart in my head when I hear it. No doubt they are no longer sirens.
