Brighton Rock

As you may have heard, they have remade Brighton Rock, the old film based on the Graham Greene novel.  It is now set in the 60s against the mods and the rockers doing their thing.  Rather shockingly, bits of it were filmed in Eastbourne as it was cheaper than giving actual Brighton a CGI make over.

The premier was last Friday at the Duke of Yorks and was attended by the director and some of the stars.  It is out at the cinemas from Friday the 4th Feb.

Fatboy Slim Not Dead

It is strange but one of the many popular pages on the blog is this one.  I used to think it was because it mentioned the Brighton Port Authority and that I was getting a lot of yachtsmen accessing the page by accident.  It turns out however that there are a lot of people out there enquiring if Mr Cook is still breathing.  Despite his reputation for chemicals, you will all be glad to know he is.

Seedy Sunday

No, it is nothing to do with lap dancing clubs or hanging around Dukes Mound.  Seedy Sunday is a meeting for all those green fingered folks who want to wish to exchange seeds of plants they possess for the seeds of plants they don't.  Like the Multi Coloured Swap Shop but for gardeners.  The next one is Sunday 6th Feb at Hove Town Hall.

Circus of Horror

If you fancy some good old fashioned weirdness then you could do worse than the Circus of Horror at the Theatre Royal on Wednesday.
"The show contains some of the greatest, most bizarre & beautiful Circus acts on earth. From dare devil flying trapeze to a vampiric crow woman suspended only by her hair, from whirlwind roller skaters to sword swallowers. All this plus pickled & bendy people, Voodoo Warriors, Knife throwers and an almighty cast of 26 of the wildest, weirdest but most of all greatest performers on earth."

Goldie (Looking Teeth)

It seems next Saturday everyones favourite D'n'B DJ is playing the Concorde.  Frankly I think we should all be down there protesting.  Inner City Life was  great single abut frankly everything after that was a bit rubbish, and since he started appearing on TV he has well and truly jumped the shark.

According to Wikipedia.
He hosted Crime Business on digital TV channels Bravo and ftn, as well as presenting The World's Deadliest Gangs on Bravo in 2001.
Price also appeared on the second series of Celebrity Big Brother UK in 2002; he was the first celebrity to be "evicted".
He was scheduled to appear in The Games, a UK reality TV show on Channel 4. During training for the water-ski jump event, he fractured his femur, and was unable to take part in the show. He was replaced by Adam Rickitt.
He appeared on Celebrity Mastermind on 27 December 2009 and came fourth behind Paul O'Grady, Gail Emms and Loyd Grossman.
On September 11, 2010, he was announced as part of the line-up in Strictly Come Dancing and on the 10th of October he became the first celebrity to leave the show.

Not to mention his recent appearance on "Come Dine With Me". I am just saying that anyone on the same "Celebrity" list as Adam Rickitt and with less dancing ability than Anne Widdicombe really
ought to keep a lower profile.
