Hello, good evening and welcome…

(Unless it’s the morning or the afternoon, of course; in either case, naturally, you’re very welcome too)

So what is George’s Journal? Well, intrepid internet surfer, you’re now a super lucky feller. Yes, that’s right, for you’ve stumbled upon the blog-cum-magazine written by yours truly, St. George – as my online moniker goes. What’s it all about? Well, not to get too Jerry Maguire on you, but its mission statement, generally speaking, is to supply you with my opinions and feelings on Anglo-American culture (much of it retro – from the Sixties, Seventies and Eighties), including film, TV, music, famous figures, events and developments. There may too be a smattering of ‘smart art’ talk from further back – such as Impressionism and Shakespeare, say – but probably not that much, don’t worry. And, on a more serious note (er, maybe), there may too be some political and more modern musing – in moderation. There’s two sides to every coin, but this place isn’t likely to get too serious, don’t worry. Healthy doses of nostalgia, whimsy, fun and frivolity’ll most likely be the order of the day at George’s Journal.

Now, after reading those three paragraphs, a couple of questions have probably struck you. First, has this sort of thing been done before? Unquestionably. Second, has it been done better? No doubt. But I can guarantee you it won’t have been done quite like this before – or maybe ever. Turn on, tune in and read out loud (if you like) then while sipping your favourite tipple. And by all means ‘reply’ – after all, as Bob Hoskins used to maintain, it’s good to talk.

Stay cool, peeps,

    Let me be the first in congratulating you on your blog.

    It may still be in its infancy, but it will grow up so very fast. And even at this young age, I see its potential.

    I have already subscribed and I’ll be checking in regularly.

    I have to say, so far so good.

      Thank you, dublo – you are indeed a modern gent, there’s no question about that.

      As you say, hopefully, it will grow up quickly. I’m looking to get more bits and bobs uploaded just as soon as I can. Keep those peepers peeled!

    Apart from myself, there seems to be a distinct lack of tits.

      Well, for as long as possible methinks I want to keep this a family friendly joint, Ambler – censorship’s a bitch, eh?!

      Anyhoo, nice to see you’ve looked me up here, as it were…

    Just read your piece on The Kingsman in MI6 Confidential and thought I’d check out your blog. I look forward to checking out more of your writing. I also do some writing about Bond as well as my own fiction over at my blog if you care to check it out.

    Due to “administrational differences” between us Admins and the owner of Classic Doctor Who 24/7, we have parted ways and have set up our own groups.

    Please come and join us if you want, as you’d expect, quality chat + great pics 🙂

    For Classic era chat

    Hello, I am hoping you may be able to help me with something. I acquired what looks to be a signed painting, framed of Jim Morrison, although I am not positive it is a painting. When I googled the description it matches the image you have used on your post about Mr. Mojo Rising. Do you know anything about it? Thank you in advance for any info young have.

    I like your short essay on John Barry on MI6 website.

    Fortunately, I have had a chance to meet him, and even interview him many years ago. He was a fantastic composer and a very decent human being who shall be missed greatly – although he will always be appreciated for his superior music and the fact that he did so much of it and left so many excellent scores for us to listen to for years to come.

    Keep up the good work!

      Thanks for the comment and kind words, MP – much appreciated!

      Very envious you got to meet the greet man; must have been a real ambition realised.

      All the best,
