The Last of the Famous International Playboys

In the early hours of this morning, I was woken by the death knell that is the BBC app news flash.

Expecting it to foretell imminent Trump-inspired apocalyptical oblivion, I read it, only to find some dirty old man wearing a dressing gown in a big house had died, surrounded by women at not even half his age, who he had enticed into his world with a set of clip-on rabbit ears.

That man was Playboy magazine founder, Hugh Hefner.

*Insert joke about tossing and turning myself back to sleep here*

So, as I imagine you’ll be hearing this record accompanying the news updates a lot today, I figured I’d get in first:

  1. Yes headline news today – the world truly has gone mad. He had appeared on telly the other night in the film House Bunny (gets rubbish review but we liked Anna Faris in it) and we conjectured whether he was still with us or not – Now I know.

    Perfect tune.

  2. What a strange world we live in…
    But now there’s your cue to feature something by the New Pornographers…?
    (‘The New Face Of Zero And One’ please, if you’re doing requests!)
