Is this Erich Von Däniken’s favourite Christmas song? A little while back, the Beeb ran a documentary about the medieval view of the universe, where you could find dragons and unicorns, did dog head people have souls, and similar conundrums. It included a tale of villagers who encountered a strange man from the sky.…
Spoiler laced ponderings follow. Beware.
The great Wigan space pie has successfully returned to Earth after reaching an altitude of 97,000ft. It landed in Low Bentham, North Yorkshire about 50 miles from the original launch site.
For all of y’all who need a good story line from Star Wars, and you own an Apple device you can play on, buy this game for only $3. The game play is turn-based combat, but the best part is the story line. No spoilers. Just enjoy the game.
If you were to rank the original Star Wars trilogy, your ranking would most likely have Return of the Jedi in third. That’s understandable.

The Svengoolie movie this week will be The Brides of Dracula. Hammer horror directed by Terence Fisher.
I’m just about ready to home for the night but I remembered I still needed to do this post. So, what is your commute like?
Not sure how many of you fine folks are fans of Welcome to Night Vale (it should be all of you), nor am I sure how many of you are musicians, nor am I sure what the Venn Diagram of those two groups is.
Hey up! It’s enough to make Hacker T. Dog blush with pride! It’s a meat product, it’s from Wigan - and it has been into space. The pie in the sky is looking at you.
Because let’s be honest, with a new SW film coming out in December for years to come, Jesus and Santa aren’t really the big deal of the season anymore. So they better go with the flow and carry out their differences in the new style!
I was just reading about the inevitability of The Great Escape being shown over Christmas - except it isn’t. Unless Sky have given the film its own channel of multi-play screenings that aren’t repeats, Steve McQueen’s finest(?) hour has only been shown twice on the Beeb during the Festive Season.
Morning Odeck & welcome to this week’s slightly rushed Creative Challenge. If anyone’s around & they feel like it I’d like at least 40 words about any of the images inside...
