    happy birthday to old Ludwig Van!

    at least the CBC says todays his birthday, and they're playing his music all day today. First movement of the Pastoral right now, my favourite!

    if only the state psychiatrists hadn't programmed me to be sickened by the sound of old Ludwig Van I could be enjoying this right now!

  • Number24Number24 NorwayPosts: 19,962MI6 Agent

    To joy, Ludwig! 🎊🎉

    Wishing the happiest of birthdays to him! Many thanks to David for all the information and for the videos, which really can't be beaten. Definitely my first port of call for incredibly useful reviews.

    Today marks the 100th Anniversary of the birth of James Bond continuation author and scholar Sir Kingsley Amis (1922-1995). I wish to say a massive thank you to the man who more or less invented serious Bond scholarship with The James Bond Dossier (1965) and who wrote what I consider to still be the best Bond continuation novel, Colonel Sun (1968).

    How did we miss this?

    Belated birthday wishes to Sir Paul McCartney, who turned 80 on the 18th.

    I believe he may have had some success with other songs, too.

  • The Red KindThe Red Kind EnglandPosts: 2,624MI6 Agent

    Indeed. Belated Happy Birthday Sir Paul.

    Love that he still includes LALD in his live shows with the pyrotechnics. His royal genius certainly didn't let us down with his offering to the series. An absolute masterpiece on every level.

    Have you ever heard of the Emancipation Proclamation?"
