Been trying to pause sky sport online all afternoon  :thumbsdown
As hopeless as the phone.
They should just give all their customers a rebate of what their sky package cost.
Wasting people time instead of doing the right thing. 
 

I done it via the mysky app this evening- clicked the coronavirus section on the app - it loads a page once it’s your turn ( took around 10 minutes ) it automatically refreshes page so leave app open - asks you to confirm you want to pause service ( sports ) informs you they will message you when sport resumes IF you want to resume service

Click confirm & next bill will be adjusted automatically

It’s not live chat just a box to click confirm ( you need to be logged in )

Was doing that but was getting cut off at the end and wasn't sure if I had been able to pause it. 

Got them on the phone to find out I was successful, but they said I was to phone again in 3 months if I wanted to resume my package, 

Guessing they don't expect football to be back before July  :(

Maradona documentary on C4 at 9pm tonight.

Watch it last night. 

Excellent program and a reminder what a great player he was.

Shame how he buggered  it up for himself with his drug habit  :(

Good program about Aubrey Beardsley one of the early proponents of Art Noveau, brother of Peter, and drawer of dirty pictures (see below)  by Mark "League of Gentlemen" Gatiss on BBC4 last night - should be available on iPlayer...

It was fabulous!

I've been a fan of Beardsley perfection of line, space and detail since the Sixties.

(possibly cos even what appears the most innocent of depictions has a slightly nasty edge to it...  :)  )

Round about 1973-75 we bought a mirror in Paisley market (the new cattle market up by Glenburn).

it was quite big.  About 4 feet by 2.  Most of that space was a red and black Beardsley print, with minimal mirror reflection.

we were in a tiny Highbury  loft room and scullery, then.  And we’d gone up to Paisley by train.   It was a stupid thing to buy.

 

but it was beautiful. It was art.  We discovered that we both were besotted by Beardsley.

we still have it.  It hangs proudly in our fully red tiled downstairs lavvy.  Pervy...   apt.

the film was wittily and intelligently presented by the fabulous Mark Gattis.

Wire in...  :)

I just noticed that the woman on the right (in the image that my link above takes you too) has pulled on a shirt!

in the show she has no shirt.  But she does have possibly the most perfect boob ever seen.

(on second thoughts, she probably has two of them - both pretty perfect.)

Found and watched three 30 minute episodes from a delightful series probably from BBC Scotland.  A couple of guys who like being in The Hills -preferably with a watery aspect to it.  On Iplayer.

Very laid back they are... about how much they achieve on their trips, how intensely they attack it and how adaptable they are to any mishap (slight discomfort) encounter.  I found it all very relatable.

Beautiful Scotland.  shifting weather. enjoyable.

Also great music (I searched to find the guy filming, directing etc etc O'Donnell (?) made).   Kinda derivative at times of The Waterboys but very pleasant and good lyrics, great voice: Beluga Lagoon is the band name.

Watched The Secret Life of Books: Cider with Rosie presented by Joanna Trollope (I'm sure she's not) a elegiac memoir of his youth in the Cotswalds just after WW1. For them as remembers their first fumbling attempts with girls & alcohol it is still relevant yet describes the demise of pre-automobile society. 

As an aside the Chapter describing his childhood infirmIties, Sick Boy, surely couldn't have been the inspiration for Irvine Welsh?

Edit - In these Covid times we all have telly (maybe not antrin) & t'internet but back in the day, 100 years ago times were tough with no running water or central heating and having to share a bed with your siblings.

The Olovier-Oberon-Niven version of Wuthering Heights in on one of the free Sky Movie channels, instead I'm watching a Kate Bush at the BBC Special from 1979 - very pretentious but the gal does have some good choons! 

A personal favourite of mine is Them Heavy People which is about philosopher's rather than fatties - and features Kate showing a bit of leg! :wub:

A few years back, I was the Bronte museum in Hawarth with a tour group.

Saw a quite nice lass visiting there with her man...   kinda hunched up though, and collar up, just....acting kinda weird....   thought I knew the face and figured out it was a BBC presenter.

One of my Aussie punters returned to the bus raving about having seen Kate Bush, which I thought, at first, was an Aussie euphemism...

 

I found out later, that it was a lady pop person.   

I am of an earlier generation... :)

Watched The Vikings on BBC2 yesterday afternoon not the current gorefest on the History Channel but the 50s Hollywood version (pure hokum) starring Kirk Douglas, Tony Curtis (horribly miscast in a period role), Janet "Psycho" Leigh with Ernest Borgnine as KDs dad despite being younger than him in real life. :specs

Tony Curtis & Janet Leigh were the parents of Jamie Leigh Curtis...:wub:

You should watch the 1994 film called True Lies, in which she preformed a strip show for her hubby in it    :thumbsup

IIRC she dispensed with clothing, on occasion, in both A fish called Wanda and Trading places.
