    Just watching Errol Brown of TOTP on BBC 4 and he has a smashing medallion. I suddenly realised that I gave my medallion to who would later become the current Mrs blazer way back in the early 70s. She admitted that she still has it. perhaps I should start wearing it again!

    Men's fashion is a fickle beast, no?
    I used to love a nice medallion precisely because you could remove it and place in a drawer, thereby enabling a focused approach to bants with the person in front of you, unlike the current fashion of a beard which you cannot remove, and which,when conducting said bants, is prone to forcing limitless abstract wisdom to be obscured by one tiny visible crumb. And a vague sense of unease that a twenty year old would want to look sixty*
    Bring back the removable medallion!

    That all sounds terribly wrong. And what the hell is "bants"? "Pants" I understand!

    That was a brilliant episode of TOTP last night. We only turned it off when Susie Quatro came on.

    As you should, she was pants. Horrible voice, never understood the appeal.

    You can only wear a medallion if you have the chest wig to go with it.

    The music, although I guess that only applies if what you hear from a musician is more important than what you see.

    That the leather was compensation for a lack of real stage presence? I mean yes, as a female musician she was pushing boundaries back in the 1970s, but I never thought of her as mainstream. Sort of Sunday League as opposed to Division One - a novelty act.

    If you enjoy nails scraping against blackboard then Quatro is definitely right up your alley.

    (You wish.)
