awopbopaloobop, and so on and so forth

Either this is a massive coincidence, or we're in The Matrix and I'm bending reality to my own ends with the power of my mind. Wait....I know kung fu!

Anyway, the point is that not long after my mentioning the classic 1980's TV series Tutti Frutti in the Nicky Wire post the BBC have released the whole series on DVD. Apparently the delay was due to some legal wranglings over a performance of the title song, which featured some changed lyrics and therefore provoked Little Richard's lawyers to get all lawyery on the BBC's ass, as lawyers do. Anyway, the impasse seems finally to have been "cleared up", which I assume just means that everyone finally agreed on a sum of money which would be sufficient to make the lawyers go away. Amazon seem to have sold out almost immediately, but I'll be getting a copy just as soon as one becomes available. [Image is from here.]

I'll conclude by mentioning a couple of other things in the hope that the strange powers I've exhibited here can make something happen:

Well I did focus my thoughts in quite a concentrated manner on the release of Season 3 of The Partridge Family, and lo, it was released. You can borrow it if you like.

I'd have to see seasons 1 and 2 first. Don't want to miss out on any twisty-turny plot shenanigans.

Oh, I've got Seasons 1 and 2 as well, though I can't say there's much in the way of continuous plot. David Cassidy does get increasingly less convincing as a schoolboy as the series progresses.
