    Remembering Peter Mayhew on May the Fourth, a.k.a. Star Wars Day

    When May 4 rolls around each year, it’s traditionally that cringe-worthy moment when those non-Star Wars fans grin and bear it when someone says goodbye by saying ‘may the fourth be with you‘.

    Happy 66th, Rowan Atkinson!

    Rowan Atkinson turns 66 today. Thankfully, for us, the comedic genius chose to put neither his degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from Newcastle University nor his degree of MSc in Electrical Engineering from The Queen’s College, Oxford to use. His true calling became more clear after gaining national attention as member of The Oxford Revue at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 1976.

    Happy belated 86th, Dame Judi Dench!

    If it wasn’t the case before, I’m now fully convinced that if you looked up the definition of brilliant in the dictionary, there would simply be a photo of Dame Judi Dench. The Oscar/Tony/BAFTA/Laurence Olivier/Golden Globe/Screen Actors Guild award winner turned 86 years young on Wednesday and shows no signs of slowing down any time […]
