Uhhhm,

Spasm isn't the name of the novel nor is it the name of the presenter. Mind you, I have seen him dance on the tv-screen and a series of spasms would indeed describe his movements correctly. :evil:

But I am afraid that is too far away from the answers themselves so I can't give it to you.

Well, Rxke, the multimedia part is definitely poppy arty farty. I got the set when I was 21 (hint) and it had just come out and I started on the novel, then went to the LP, listened for a minute or two, then tried the book again. To no avail, I am afraid.

But I am quite pleased to see that this problem is indeed a tad more difficult,

So here's a hint to link with the hint above.

When I was born, John Fitzgerald Kennedy had just become President of the USA. :wink:

BLUBBER!!!!!!!!!!!

And I thought this was a hard one!!!

I bow to you, CBR, for correctly identifying Ad Visser!!

A hint of his creative geniusship can be found here.

Anyway, CBR, the CismoFiCo is on her way to you towing an Anaconda almost filled to the rim with Evil Juice!

Enjoy!!!

And take it away, Maestro!

P.S.

The novel is called Sobrieta, btw. And as far as I know, he only wrote this. I wonder why. :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :twisted:

Excellent! Ad Visser saves the day.

ahem
I have a question but i do not have the answer... :) :shock:

I am looking for an old i think british tv serie with a major part played by a big (grandfather/long) clock.
Children would be in the room with the clock and at a certain time/moment the clock would play
his tune accompanied by eerie music and one would be 'teleported' to another place/time which
wasnt always a good thing.

I don't know the overall story because the sounding of that clock would make me change channels.
:mrgreen:

I would like to know the title or a youtube link.

His wardrobe surprise at 2:10, genius or totally bat(heh)shitcrazy? He's hardcore into his own stuff for sure.

BTW, I looked him up, he's 69 and looks incredibly well preserved... And still going at it.
