Queer as Folk - subtext

So...

...tell me what's worse: the fact that, back in 1996, I bought the single change your mind by short-lived boyband Upside Down pretty much solely because it was produced by *ahem* notorious Doctor Who BNF Ian Levine? Or the fact that b-side Rising to another level is really quite good? (IMO, of course.)

The sleeve picture is gloriously homoerotic, btw - four topless, rather muscular, bronzed guys...like the DVD cover for Dante's Cove.

ETA: See??!

Incidentally, does anyone else remember a documentary about boybands from c1994 in which Levine, referring to Bad Boys Inc, came out with the wonderful line, "I'll never be able to keep my hands off Bad Boys"???There's one I'd love to see again...

Writer's Block: Memo to Myself

If you could travel back in time, what advice would you give to your younger self?


Don't marry Jane.

There are probably other bits of advice that I could give myself, but really, that would have to be the main one.

Also, diet, save money, and learn to drive earlier rather than later. (I guess the first and the last might kind of cancel out the middle one.)

But anyway. I'm now happily moved in with Sarah (even if I've still got a fair few possessions at Tim's), and the wedding's six weeks away now.
