Great episode, can anyone point me in the direction of that Radiohead short film PTA brings up?

On the subject of wearing dead people's clothes, New Zealand band "The Chills" had a song "I love my leather jacket" about the leather jacket former band member Martin Bull left to singer/songwriter Martin Phillips after Bull died of cancer at a young age.

Really enjoyed this one, but it’s funny how such a relaxed guy produces such dark and miserable films. I will be risking the new one when it gets to rental, just to enjoy the “DD Lewis humour”. I have Ace Ventura on my Netflix list and all the Paul Blart Mall Cops naturally! But what was that movie you mentioned toward the end?
Keep up the great work

Good guests most of the time, actually all but 2 for me so TOP PERCENTAGE. Basically when a new Adam Buxton podcast pops up in my feed it makes me feel great. A burst and rush of feelgood happiness from kick off then bang into the theme tune. From listening to the show I just think Adams is a nice guy and in a world of Mike Boudet, Piers Morgan and the DUP I really look forward to brightening up my day with this positive podcast. Its not all rainbows, baby monkeys and skipping lambs, its a show that hits at all types of different levels and Adams fragility is what makes it REAL, REAL fuck'n good. RocknRoll auld hand. Thanks for spreading the happy butter on my gluten free, non gm, delivered by a milk maid slice of life.

It's all new and bright and greatly reduced use of pink!
And some new pods to squeeze into my ears- Hurrah!

A note about Comments

Hello Podcats and Blog friends,

I wanted to let you know that comments have been disabled on the blog and the app for the time being. This is not because of anyone posting anything abusive or anything like that, but just because I seldom get round to moderating the stuff that comes in as promptly as I should, and rather than irritate people who don’t understand why their comment hasn’t been posted, I think it’s easier if I just switch them off. Sorry about that, but time is scarce and I’m disappointed to discover I can’t do everything! And if you’re one of the people who submitted a comment and it hasn’t been posted - sincere apologies.

Best wishes

Adam
