The Boy Bands Have Won, and All the Copyists and the Tribute Bands and the TV Talent Show Producers Have Won, If We Allow Our Culture to Be Shaped by Mimicry, Whether from Lack of Ideas or from Exaggerated Respect. You Should Never Try to Freeze Culture. What You Can Do Is Recycle That Culture. Take Your Older Brother’s Hand-Me-Down Jacket and Re-Style It, Re-Fashion It to the Point Where It Becomes Your Own. But Don't Just Regurgitate Creative History, or Hold Art and Music and Literature As Fixed, Untouchable and Kept Under Glass. The People Who Try to 'Guard' Any Particular Form of Music Are, Like the Copyists and Manufactured Bands, Doing It the Worst Disservice, Because the Only Thing That You Can Do to Music That Will Damage It Is Not Change It, Not Make It Your Own. Because Then It Dies, Then It's Over, Then It's Done, and the Boy Bands Have Won.

Commonly shortened to The Boy Bands Have Won

Jayson Brinkler - longest individual drum roll
Drummer Jayson Brinkler fell and injured his wrist days before he was scheduled to try and break the record for the world’s longest single drum roll in May 2015. But the British champion (who performed at the opening of the London 2012 Olympic games) soldiered on regardless, playing for 12 hours, five minutes and five seconds in front of a crowd at Highfield Baptist Church. “It was so tough - a lot harder than I thought it was going to be,” he told Kent Online afterwards. “A few days before, I slipped and injured my wrist. I didn’t think anything about it, but it did play a part when I attempted the record. About eight hours in, my wrist just went. It was very hard. I was in tremendous pain but I kept pushing and pushing.” Brinkler - who used the same drumsticks he’d owned for 30 years to attempt the feat - broke the record by five minutes and four seconds, but had to take a trip to A&E to get his wrist checked after he’d finished.

He used the '00' with an elongated '7' covering the zeros, signifying that it was for the 'queen's eyes' only.

11 A - Signature of English spy John Dee


In the film 'Dr No' his superiors forced him to upgrade to a Walther PPK.
This was based on a reader's advice to Fleming, who suggested that the Beretta was more of a 'lady's gun', so he was given a more masculine model.


01

12 C - Beretta 418


Bond's hand-made cigarettes, made by the same supplier as Fleming's, had 3 gold stripes on the filter - his naval rank insignia. Another unique detail by the author.


02

13 D - Commander


Fleming was an avid bird-watcher and after reading Bond's field guide, he thought it was 'The dullest name he had ever heard'. He saw the secret agent as a 'blunt instrument' who simply followed orders, and wanted a blunt name to match.

14 C - It was the name of an American ornithologist

01 Palace of Westminster


Located in the British capital, this site has been the official meeting place of the country’s parliament for more than 700 years. It was also at the centre of the Gunpowder Plot in 1605.
Originally a royal residence in the 11th century, the Palace of Westminster in London was mostly demolished in a fire in 1834 and rebuilt as we know it later in the 19th century. Today, it’s the meeting place for both houses of parliament in the United Kingdom – the House of Lords and the House of Commons.

02 Royal Yacht Britannia


This historic vessel remained in service until 1997 and is now moored in Leith. It’s now one of Scotland’s most-visited attractions and some might say it’s fit for a queen…
During her 44-year career, Britannia travelled 1,087,623 nautical miles, calling at more than 600 ports in 135 countries, taking members of the royal family across the globe on trips including official tours and honeymoons. Britannia was the last of 83 different British Royal Yachts owned by the monarchy, with Queen so fond of the ship, she shed a tear at the decommissioning ceremony. Take a closer look at the historic vessel here.

03 Angel of the North, Gateshead


Completed in 1998, this structure was intended to recognise the coal-mining history of the area, signify the transition from an industrial to an information age, and symbolise our hopes and fears. But it was hated by many during its construction.
Looming over the A1 on the mound of an abandoned coal mine in Gateshead, Antony Gormley’s extraordinary and once controversial piece of public art has become a cherished landmark in England’s northeast. The wingspan of the colossal steel masterpiece is nearly as wide as a jumbo jet at 177-feet (54m) across and the statue stands 66-feet (20m) tall. Here are 50 defining British landmarks.

04 Roman Baths, Bath


Constructed from around AD 60-70, this landmark was once located within a settlement called Aquae Sulis. There was also a temple dedicated to the goddess Sulis Minerva.
One of the most popular Roman sites in Britain, this ancient bathing complex is slap-bang in the centre of picturesque Bath next to the beautiful medieval Bath Abbey. Built to make the most of the natural, mineral-rich thermal waters here, the magnificent Great Bath forms the centrepiece of this site, but the ruins are extensive and the museum incredibly informing. Take a look at the world's most incredible Roman ruins you have to see to believe.

05 Giants Causeway, County Antrim


Linked to a mystical legend, this natural landmark, facing the North Atlantic Ocean, was formed as a result of an ancient volcanic eruption. Although incredible, it's not unique: similar landmarks across the world include the Devils Tower National Monument in Wyoming, US.
As its name suggests, this geological wonder in Northern Ireland is linked to the legend of two giants: Irish Finn McCool and his archenemy, the fearsome Scottish Benandonner. The story goes that McCool was determined to defeat his enemy once and for all, so he broke off great hunks of the Antrim coast and arranged them in the sea to make a pathway to Benandonner. Now take a look at fantastic travel photos that will make you feel better about the world.
