    Thanks for the memories Jim.

    Cheers Jim.

    It's probably a poor reflection on me that I'm commentating on this and not the Stephen Hawking one.

    A few weeks ago YouTube thought I'd like an old clip of Jim doing his stand up routine. It was right. Because it was dated I overlooked the rather non pc elements but it was really funny. Some great stories about his time on Bullseye ( the bar hidden behind the set to help contestants calm down being the main cause of most issues).

    RIP. 
    I feel the warm, healing, liquid presence of God’s genuine cold-filtered grace.

    Was that the story about the 2 Irish guys who lost, got wrecked at that bar but by default, were put in the final and would've won the car or speedboat but kept declining it in favour of £40?

    RIP Jim

    I saw Jim in the Park Hotel in Lancaster, singing shit jazz. I had a wee next to him, not while he was singing though. He was a better comedian than singer, that's for sure.

    I loved that show. Guy was a legend! RIP Jim!
     so if you fancy a reissue of a guitar they never made in a colour they never used then it probably isn't too overpriced.

    My trading feedback

    is it crazy how saying sentences backwards creates backwards sentences saying how crazy it is?
