Dark Horse: An Alec Guinness Archive  is another excellent Archive On Four programme. (Forgive the late rec - there’s only two days left on the iplayer - I’ve only just listened myself). It’s basically an audio biography, full of archive interviews with Alec, friends and colleagues. A fascinating hour’s listen.

Hot toddy appreciation : 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9

According to wikipedia (yeah, I know), a Hot Maggie is a type of Hot Toddy made with Earl Grey Tea and Grand Marnier. I like all Hot Toddies, but a Hot Maggie sounds like it kicks all other Hot Toddy butt.

My Favorite hot toddies:

Hot Powers

This was served to me at a pub in Dublin.  It used Powers whiskey, but you can substitute any Irish whiskey and still be legit:

2 ounces of Powers, a slice of lemon with a few cloves stuck into it, a couple of teaspoons of sugar or for extra class, sugar cubes.  Put that stuff in a glass mug, and fill with hot water. 

Hot buttered Rum

Get fucked up the Pilgrim way!  2 ounces rum, 1 tsp of butter, a couple of teaspoons of sugar.  Put ye olde stuff in a mug and fill it with hot water.  

Milky Joe’s Coco Loco Winter Warmer

2 ounces rum, 1 tablespoon coconut manna or coconut butter (do not use coconut oil!)1 tablespoon coconut palm sugar or coconut blossom sugar Put ingredients in a mug or a hollowed out coconut, fill with hot water.  Sit back and contemplate getting layers cut into your hair.

Priney’s Hot Punch

Modified version of the the Prince Regent’s favorite punch recipe.

1 ounce rum, 1 ounce brandy, 1 ounce port, 1 teaspoon of sugar, piece of lemon peel, twisted and squeezed so that the oil comes to the surface.  Throw all this into a royal mug and fill it with hot water.  Sink me, but that’s delicious.

if i’m not mistaken there is also some pinky ring action happening here which tbh is really overkill, but IT’S ANTON, he can get away with almost anything except making me like la ronde.
Agreed!  La Ronde is only good as the source of a couple of excellent bugle and silly hat gifs.  It’s telling that Anton plays Satan and he’s the most likeable character in the film.

WWII Hairstyles
A collection of WWII photographs, depicting some Of the hairstyles of the time, like the victory Rolls, the lifted and the swoops hairstyles. Most of these woman pictured here, were either in the services, the Land Army, WVS, working in factories or part of the home front. A rather inspiring gaggle of girls with gorgeous locks.

the important question is, how tight are puritan trousers?

This week, for RLT, it’s a shameless Trousers Appreciation Post. Specifically, Roger’s pink trousers in Ballantrae (a film that has more costume changes than plot points). Apart from Clive’s 1902 uniform trousers, I can state that so far these are the tightest trousers I’ve seen Roger wearing.
