Nano num-nums

Three blogging friends have screamed at me in that silent but deadly way that happens in blog comments ‘NNNNOOoooooo!!!!!’ to me posting extracts of Harry Spittle’s new story, fearing spoilers for book one which they still have to read.

And maybe they have a point. Even if I limit myself to standalone pieces some small shards of previous plot might be given away. But Nano deserves something so instead I will share some funnies with you this month to perk up Nanites and keep them writing. And if you aren’t writing then please enjoy whether you know these pieces or not.

I love a link and having posted on ‘ruts’ this week here’s something from the Rutles. Ok tenuous but better than tangental.

The Rutles emerged in the 1970s as a Beatles pastiche – thePrefab Four – as the brain child of Neil Innes (of the Bonzo Dog Doodah Band – more later) and Eric Idle of the Pythons. They started as part of Rutland Weekend Televison a comedy show but grew to be a band in their own right. They even made films – All You Need is Cash and Can’t Buy Me Lunch.

I give you I Must be In Love from the award winning album A Hard Day’s Rut.

About TanGental

My name is Geoff Le Pard. Once I was a lawyer; now I am a writer. I've published several books: a four book series following Harry Spittle as he grows from hapless student to hapless partner in a London law firm; four others in different genres; a book of poetry; four anthologies of short fiction; and a memoir of my mother. I have several more in the pipeline. I have been blogging regularly since 2014, on topic as diverse as: poetry based on famous poems; memories from my life; my garden; my dog; a whole variety of short fiction; my attempts at baking and food; travel and the consequent disasters; theatre, film and book reviews; and the occasional thought piece. Mostly it is whatever takes my fancy. I avoid politics, mostly, and religion, always. I don't mean to upset anyone but if I do, well, sorry and I suggest you go elsewhere. These are my thoughts and no one else is to blame. If you want to nab anything I post, please acknowledge where it came from.

  2. That is awesome! 😀 But anything with Eric Idle in it is bound to be brilliant. I had never hear of the Rutles. Thanks for sharing.

      And today Eric’s TV debut in the children’s TV Do Not Adjust Your Set. Watch out for the incredibly youthful Michael Palin. I remember watching as a kid
