Blue Monday over the closing credits of Dress To Impress yesterday (don't normally watch such highbrow programmes at 7 in the morning but I wasn't in a rush to go to work so thought I'd take some time to watch this gem that has been stashed in the early morning schedules by ITV) - but it might be on the end titles for every episode for all I know.

Not sure if this was posted before, but was looking through Hooky's IMDB page today and noticed that he's featured in a documentary called '1599: A True Story of the Elizabethan Court '.
Thought it was probably an error, but then found a trailer for it:

https://youtu.be/YjFKb0GR5S8?t=94

Who would have thunk it; Hooky getting all cultured on us. Yeah, I know he's a reasonably clever bloke and all, but an expert on Elizabethan lifestyle? You really do learn something new every day.

Programme Maker 1: 'We're going to be making a programme on culture within the times of Elizabeth I. Can you get on to the history professor at King's College and ask if he'd be interested.'

Programme Maker 2: 'I've already been on to the college and he isn't available at present. However, I've heard the bass player from Joy Division might be up for it.'

Programme Maker 1: 'Come again?'

I mean, how did this idea even come about?

Oh a good one for the New Order spotters. In Ready Player One, the (excellent) new Spielberg film, the bulk of Blue Monday is played in an early scene where the two main characters go to a dance club in the Oasis. Then later, in the real life scenes, the female lead wears an Unknown Pleasures t shirt for a good bit of her screen time. In the final scene, a woman in a Technique tour T-shirt (the very type I got way back when) walks up to one of the main bad guys and mouths off to him.

Just been to see 'Ready Player One'. Pretty good film. Quite entertaining.

That Technique t-shirt is a 'blink and you'd miss it' appearance, but the JD one is very prominent. Not quite as prominent as that episode of the Limitless TV series, but still pretty good.

Blue Monday really sounded great booming out in the club. Couldn't believe how much of it they played. Was kind of expecting that they would fade it out before the vocals kicked in. Was pleasantly surprised that they didn't though.

Interesting thing about Ready Player One. It actually takes place in the city I grew up in, Columbus Ohio. The author of the book lived in Columbus in the 80's and 90's and his books are filled with Columbus references, street intersections, ect. The writer is also apparently a big New Order/Joy Division fan, so I'd imagine all of the references in the film are quite intentional on the directors part as well. I've not seen the film yet.

It's just over three minutes of the track (to be exact-ish). From 42 mins to 45 mins in the film.

Great spots on the Technique T-shirt, people! I think I would have missed it if I hadn't seen these comments. I used to have that Tee as well. The elastic eventually "rusted" and it went in the bin Frown . I dont miss people asking me "is he having a wank?" when I wore it though...
As for BM, perhaps unusually for films & TV, they skipped the opening minute of the track. So it fades in around the start of Hook's bass circa 1.16 (original 12") and it gets cut off around 4.28 with "tell me how does it feel when your heart [grows cold]" They couldn't leave it til Bernard sang the last two words? Tsh.

If I were to put my fashion police hat on, I might suggest the UP Tee was technically a vest:

^Yep I saw that latest David Squires one today. Quite funny but not as funny as some of his previous efforts which have had me in stitches. Squires is the king of satirical football cartoons. His story of World In Motion was great to see today though and some of the comments with JD/NO song lyrics adapted to a football theme were possibly even funnier than the cartoon.

Saw a BT fibre optic broadband advert and it had blue Monday 88 playing throughout with a girl walking the streets and people singing the lines from the song.

It even had a brief shot of a dog similar to the one from the bands video.

I thought it was pretty good.

And bits of the actual BM '88 video. Weird re-edit. I can't hear any '88 overdubs though.

Yesterday me and my wife were walking in Bay ridge Brooklyn and it was a really hot day in the 90's and as we were walking there was a white lady layed on in lawn chair in the hot sun on the sidewalk blasting Age of Consent by New order and I told her that I Love New Order and that song and she got so happy.

Day Of The Lords just been played before the England v Panama game on the BBC. Played lots of it. Sounded awesome (obviously).

Transmission was played a few days ago too on the World Cup coverage. Only a bit though.

Must be a JD fan at Auntie Beeb.

C’mon En-ger-land!
Am sitting here wearing my 1990 England blue strip, just like Mr Sumner in the World In Motion video.
Hope it’s lucky.

Edit:

The obligatory World In Motion was also played at the end of the programme in preparation for England’s next match against Belgium. The last time the two nation’s met in a World Cup was 1990, so there were various clips from that tournament, played out to WIM.

Yes I noticed this stuff too. [Edit: also instrumental bits of Atmosphere whilst the group tables were being shown. Not sure if that was ITV or BBC]. Also as I'm typing, the words New Order are currently in the top 10 trends on twitter.
I think trends can vary depending on where you are in the world (London in my case) and who you follow.
I'm seeing lots of people putting WIM in tweets and I imagine this may increase if you Englsih people enjoy more results like today's. Especially as you don't have an official anthem this time around.

This tweet stands out amongst the trending NO tweets:

Nice.

Was a great game if you're an England supporter.

That Panama side in the first half though - they committed some of the roughest, dirtiest fouls I've seen in a long time on a football field.
Good job by the referee in controlling things, so at least the second half was a little less fraught.

I've just heard a bit of Transmission being used in a "playout" to an an ad break at half time during Serbia v Brazil on ITV. And my feeling is that Atmosphere (above) was on ITV as well.
So both BBC and ITV have used bits of Joy Division for this World Cup. Cheerful stuff!

Yeah - I've just noticed Transmission on ITV.

Kind of strange using JD. OK, Transmission is fairly upbeat. But Atmosphere and Day Of The Lords... Wow - that's pretty heavy stuff.
