Quote of the week

To mark the release of Creed, the latest addition to the Rocky movie franchise, Warner Brothers decided to reward commuters who opted to use the stairs rather than escalators at London’s Chancery Lane tube stop with a motivational rendition of the timeless theme tune. The film is out today, BTW.

First, David Bowie sadly passes away on Sunday, and then yesterday news hit that much-loved actor, Alan Rickman, perhaps best known as the baddie from Die Hard and the selfish Sheriff of Nottingham in Robin Hood Prince of Thieves, had also died. Both will be sorely missed by all.
