Entirely unrelated to this. Is it you that likes Ed Harcourt? Every time one of his songs comes onto my iPod Shuffle I have an insistent 'somebody's blog that I read likes Ed Harcourt' feeling, but can't quite pin down who. Put my mind at rest.

(If it is, all credit to you.)

I find the steampunk gorilla deeply disturbing. At least, I hope those are steam valves...

It is me that likes Ed Harcourt. Well, lots of people as well, but I've been banging on about him and singing 'Looooonlinessssssss' for ages.

It's a great gorilla isn't it? From the Hellboy action figure range you know. Came with a nazi scientist head in a jar, all for under fifteen quid. Yes, those are steam valves.

I sat in front of Ed Harcourt at a concert once (this is about my only claim to fame and not even much of a claim, which is why I may have mentioned this before).

Also: oh my god, spiders AND gorillas? I'm quite scared.

This is getting far too S&My for Toy-Fu. I don't like to think of Steve and Jeff being corrupted in this way.

At least the mystery of the funny hissing noise has been cleared up - although I would have put money on it being those slugs...

God bless him. I have 'Shanghai' in my head now.

Strangely coincidental - as it happens I am going to see the boy Harcourt play one solo acoustic set and one set with his postmodern-ironic thrash band Wild Boar tomorrow evening.

[geek mode] i know that gorilla was from Hellboy as soon as i saw it!

now this is the bit i have to look up....the Nazi head in a jar is called Herman Von Klempt and hes made many gorillas with big bolts sticking out of them, mainly because Mike Mignola likes drawing them.

theres also an humunculus called Roger, which i find quite amusing...

Well, obviously.

I don't comment as much as I used to, do I? Funny that, I still lurk.

Surely the gorilla is looking for a job? Lurking outside in holes he obviously has no place to live. He could do with the cash (or lego bricks as the case may be). He'd be very good to frightening off spiders I should think and the princess would be able to see if he was still there or not, so avoiding all those embarrassing one-sided conversations. Hire him now!

Great to see Steve back. I had heard reports that he'd flounced off set because Jeff's winnebago was bigger. Such a celeb.
