Nah.

It's just a bit disrespectful.

When someone has been in Boys From The Black Stuff and BREAD it is acceptable to contrast the colours black/brown while referencing Bread.
To just say ‘So and so ... brown bread’ is a bit unnecessary in other cases.

Re: Michael Angelis RIP
When Tommy Steele starred in the West End musical Singing In The Rain , the highlight was the onstage rain at the finale apparently. Steele would milk massive applause for the spectacle.

Sadly, he didn't realise he was so unpopular with all of his fellow cast and crew (Inc the women) that they'd spend the day pissing into the tank that would empty over his head every night. 100% true

(I'm not that old. Just know some old fella who worked on it.)

Re: Michael Angelis RIP
I feel like Im back in 80s Britain as I've just been made redundant.

In any case, what a few people might not know is that Mike (as I knew him) was up for the Dennis role in Auf Wiedersehen, Pet.

Well, imagine trying to roll out a complete comotose Mike onto the grey tarmac of the trendy C4 carpark to get him to audition! Didn't go to plan, even Mike agrees, or did.

But recall a fantastic night when Jerry Garcia ("Grateful Dead"), Ian Curtis ('Joy Division"), Neil Young ("Neil Young"), Billy Strings ("Billy Strings") got our banjos out.

I'll never forget an acapella me and Jerry did of "Ripple" out on the garden patio looking up to the moon, and sometimes into eachothers eyes. I'll never forget, must have been around 4am or 6am.

But then Leonard Cohen fucking arrives and spoils the whole scene.

He and Ian Curtis hit it off and produce an Auf Wierdersehen script...

Setting Newcastle. Dennis arrives home to Vera.
Den and Nev share a taxi. They stop outside Veras.

Nev: OK Den, be sure to keep in touch. Well have a few jars eh?

Den: Will do son. Give my love to Brenda.

Nev: I will, oh and hey, hope it works out like.

Den: Cheers Nev! You to!

Nev: Me!

Den smiles and says, 'Who's Lotte?'

Nev: Oh god!

Den walks up the path with his suitcase. Rings the doorbell. Vera opens door.

Den: Hello pet.

Vera: Hello pet, come in.

Enter living room, Vera sits on the couch and Den stays standing.

Den: Where's the bairns and the welcome home flags?

Vera: Oh theyre stopping out, I thought we should talk first.

Den: Talk about what?

Vera: Well theres a few things to sort out.

Den: Like what?

Vera: Well, lets have a cup of tea first. You must be thirsty after your flight.

Vera gets up and goes into the kitchen, Den follows with a worried look. Vera fills kettle, Den lights a fag.

Den: OK, what ?

Vera looking awfully tense: Oh, im sorry to hear about the fire and all ya gear. How did you get new passports so quick ?

Den: It was nay bother now look Vera, this is not the homecoming that I expected pet!!

Vera: Im sorry but I just thought we should take things slowly at first.

Den drags on his fag: What dya mean slowly?

Vera hesitantly: Well, Ive set up the spare room.

Den: What, why? Who for like?

Vera: eyes closed, - For you.

Den with raised voice: For me? If I had have wanted my own room I could have booked into a bloody hotel man! Now look Vera,
you wanted me back Im here. But what do I find? No bairns, no welcome committee and Im a bloody lodger! Whats gan on pet?

Vera: its not like that!
Den shouts: Well what the hell is it like then?

Vera: I need time to get used to the idea.

Den: Time? It was your bloody idea in the first place!

Vera: I know, I know pet. Its just with leaving Alan and finding you with Dagmar and all...

Den shouts over: I broke up with Dagmar for you! My whole new start in life given up for you and the bairns. What do I get? No bairns and the spare bloody room! Vera pet, I feel like a ship thats about to sink below the Plimsoll line. Thanks a bunch!

Vera gets up and pours the water into the tea pot. She turns around and blasts: Well you can always go back to bloody Dagmar!

Its all about you isnt it? It always bloody has been !

Vera runs out crying.

Final scene: Vera on the couch in tears, Den in the kitchen drags heavily on his fag. He looks anxious, shakes his head and says:

Jesus! What have I done? What a bloody mess.

The end.

Re: Michael Angelis RIP
Tommy Steele was a bit of self-centred, up his own arse, cunt, I should have added. He kept bursting into song. In the end you could tell everyone wanted him to shut the fuck up.

I havn't thought about this in years.

Re: Michael Angelis RIP
It must have been 1988 or 99. I was behind him in a queue at Waitrose, in East Sheen. I immediately recognised him as I was a big fan of BFTBS so was very happy when he struck up a conversation about how hard it is to park around here.

Anyway, we chatted a bit and he ended up asking what I did and I cringed and told him I was a drama student. It kind of ignited him and he was so humble and encouraging. I was rather taken back.

Then he invites me and my other two flatmates (also drama students) to a BBQ he was having the following day.

We turned up, all a bit nervous, and there were quite a few faces. Trevor Mcdonald, Tommy Steele, Michael Aspell and a few Corrie cast members (he was married to Gail at the time).

He was so welcoming and lovely, as was Helen (Gail).

Everyone got very pissed, stoned etc and it was a really brilliant day.

Never saw him again after that. But thank you Michael. R.I.P.

Re: Michael Angelis RIP
What are the 'rules' as to whether it is acceptable to use the expression 'brown bread' as opposed to RIP?

I recall moral indignation abounded when someone used 'brown bread' with regard to Gordon Banks passing.

Re: Michael Angelis ; from black stuff to brown bread
Look forward to the day when the TV news orgs similarly announce the passing of Ringo Starr, the "original voice" of Thomas The Tank Engine. Last stop, everyone off.

Re: Michael Angelis ; from black stuff to brown bread
R.I.P Michael Angelis.

One of those actors who once seen never leave the mind, his eyes were talkin all the time, they always represented the writing brilliantly.
Must have been one of those wonderful lights that helped to create a buzz for many a working class teenager to want to become actors, a bit like the great Bob Hoskins because they made it look so easy.

There might be a connection with West Ham. Angelis was a scouser,and most of them hate West Ham.

what about people posting up that things are nothing to do with West Ham yet never posting a thread about West Ham?

So fucking what? Why are we doing obituaries for people who had fuck all to do with West Ham?

Re: Michael Angelis ; from black stuff to brown bread
Oh no! Fantastic Actor...you couldn't forget those two iconic dramas.

They are going to need a new Scouser for Thomas The Tank Engine. I'm guessing John Bishop is a strong candidate.

RIP
