There's a Neil and Vivian (albeit spelt differently) in both The Bonzos and The Young Ones. (courtesy of the Head Ballet podcast today).

Only just realised that when I press CTRL and F to search a page, the pink horizontal lines that appear on the column that makes the page scroll up and down aren't glitches on my terminally ill laptop, they're lines to indicate where the word I'm searching for is.

That’s only for some words - the lines go brown for others.

Werther's are German, so presumably should be pronounced Verters.

To block the ads that play after every few songs if you've got a free account.

Oh aye, I didn’t realise they had a non-subscription option. I used to have a paid account and didn’t remember it having ads, so thought it sounded a bit rua for them to have added them.

Free version used to be the same experience but with ads but I think they hobbled it to only let you play playlists rather than albums or something.

Through Chrome it's fine with uBlock. Albums, no ads.

The free version will only play albums and playlists in shuffle mode. I think that's just on the phone app though, and the web version will play them in the proper order.

Aye, and likely has an algorithm that favours tracks people don't pick. Or at least, that's my take on a tendency I've noticed to play between song "atmospheric" pieces on prog albums over the songs themselves. A tendency to quickly wander from an electronic artist nto a cul de sac of remixes by them also irks me.

Jamiroquai is a band, not a person.

Also: Jamelia and Jameela Jamil are different people.

Football doesn't have Eurovision rules where the winner hosts the next competition. Or the public get a vote.

Only just realised that Mark Morrison's 25 year old R&B banger Return Of The Mack heavily samples Genius Of Love.

I know. That's why I thought it was a bizarre turn of events when I saw Jay Kay turn up in Glins Slide

Loïc Nottet, who competed for Belgium at the 2015 Eurovision, looks a lot like an Off Menu lovechild these days.

I’ve just conducted a Google search to see whether it is the Champions, Champions’ or Champion’s League, and found that there is a UEFA Champions League for futsal, which means I have discovered that there is a sport called futsal which is like football but just a bit less so. With twenty minute halves and fewer players to remember, maybe I can get into this sport.

Sal, sal, sal.

Futy, futy, futy.

The thing that the football kids used to shout in the playground - “go latzio” - is actually “golaço”, a Portuguese word from Italian football coverage.

They specifically picked something that sounded like Lazio because Gazza had just signed for them.
