Happy birthday Duncan Fallowell!

Can't come to the party but I'll do your horoscope if you like. xx
PS ... I know you worked with Can so here's I Want More for you ... (I know Peter Gilmour wrote it but I can dance to it and it should be remixed as a Noughties dance track) ...

I was born in a nursing home in Harrow just before midnight

Can't wait to find out what it all means

Why wasn't I invited to Duncan's birthday? Fucking London types.

OK people, this is what Fallowell's Wiki entry says - and he's SIXTY.

"Duncan Fallowell (born 1948 in London) is a British writer of fiction and non-fiction. His novels are Satyrday (1986), The Underbelly (1987) and A History of Facelifting (2003). He has written the travel books To Noto (1989) and One Hot Summer in St Petersburg (1994) and the biography of a transsexual April Ashley’s Odyssey (1982). Fallowell is also a cultural commentator and journalist who has specialised in interview-portraits of unusual or celebrated personalities. A collection of these has been published as 20th Century Characters (1994) and two further volumes are planned."

As long as Mr. Fallowell can sing "When I'm sixty-four", he'll still be on the sunny side of life. Happy birthday !

Duncan - have you thought of writing a biography of Liechtenstein? I really think you should do it.

drf said...

Do you mean the country or the painter or the grand duke? Forgive me - I have a terrible Bollinger hangover

Sorry not to have invited you, Truman, but it was really just a private dinner for a couple of dozen. But I'm going to have a fling next year when the new book comes out - and your on the list!

Shouldn't that be 'you're'on the list? And he's a famous writer!

Madame Arcati said...

Isn't Bryan ferry the most tiresome of men? I could scarcely imagine him a Libran: that's astrology for you. And who would have imagined back in the Roxy Music days that his sons would turn out to be raving right-wing pastoral revolutionaries raiding the Commons and gnashing foxes to death in the name of ye old countryside. Goodness, don't I go on.

Well, he said he had a Bollinger hangover . . . give the guy a break.

Ferry is the king of prats, so of course he fathers squirts

The country! Liechtenstein has a fascinating past and it's small and is fit to be picked on for its financial crimes.

Ferry is a narcissistic snob

drf said...

Yes, I'm making lots of mistakes today - Liechtenstein has a yodelling prince not a grand duke - still doesn't get me hard

Liechtenstein is made up of 11 communes: Balzers, Eschen, Gamprin, Mauren, Planken, Ruggell, Schaan, Schellenberg, Triesen, Triesenberg, Vaduz. It has a 100% literacy rate and no HIV/Aids. It failed to fight Hitler.
