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:

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.
