T J Brown was born in Dorset during the 1960s but was too young to realise how good the decade was meant to be. Instead, he had to make do with the 1970s, which only became interesting towards the end when many, Brown included, started wearing charity-shop clothes and swearing.

Woody Allen, Monty Python/Ripping Yarns, The Ascent of Rum Doodle, Spike Milligan, Conan Doyle, H G Wells, Flann O'Brien, Armando Iannucci, ok... brain has gone dead.. I am waiting for my potato salad to cool.

If you fancy a fill in while I prepare the second one you may enjoy two other ventures I wasted valuable free time on. 9 Lovers for Emily Spankhammer (the spinal tap of indie publishing) and The Brief History of Underpants, which is still available for less money than it costs to post. Have at it!

“As the old curator walked bow-backed down the High Street towards his small museum, he looked sadly up at the growing number of estate agent signs and narrowed his eyes; everything seemed to be changing. There were no market days anymore. The big supermarkets in Weymouth and Swanage had long since starved out the butcher, baker and greengrocer, while online shopping had comprehensively killed off the antique shop and the second-hand bookstore.
