Not a roundup of 2010 at all

The most important thing about this festive season is that Adam And Joe gathered in their festive shack to record a show to air on the morning of Christmas Day.

If you didn't catch the trail on 6Music yet, James has put it here. If you can't listen live, please join Twitsquadron on Sunday evening for an iPlayer gathering.

One could argue that it's been too long since I last updated this blog. All manner of nonsense has been going on but in this age of instant gratification (for those of us lucky enough) it seems redundant to repeat what I've already tweeted mere seconds after it happened.

I'd saved more than fifty links since my last post but happily, King Of Blogs and Count of Buckules made a lovely rounding-up sort of thingumy the other day as he battled with illness, saving me from going over all the really useful points. You're much better off reading that than this.

Well, if you must...........Sam shared a couple of pictures and a roundup of how the day went when he joined Adam and Graham Linehan for a bit of supporting artiste work on their pilot which apparently won't be aired.

Si Hawkins at the UK Comedy Blog persuaded Adam to answer a few questions around the time of the Song Wars Volume 2 release. Drowned in Sound had a piece here as did Culture Deluxe here.

You may like to bookmark this page on the fansite forum which aims to bring gig news as soon as it's made public. BUG 23 has a few seats left now but more will become available on the day(s). As you'll have read in his own blog, Adam had to cancel a couple of dates recently but both the Bristol and Kilburn venues have implied the shows will be rescheduled. The Tabernacle still have a show in February and Adam will return to the Leicester Comedy Festival again this year.

BUG 22 has been and gone and it happily coincided with the release of the Hammer and Tongs DVD so Garth & Nick came along for some viddy-chat. The beautiful Roo caught a lovely snap of them all on the stage.
I've made a couple of attempts to recreate something of the fun of a BUG night on here before but thanks to goodly enhancements to YouTube, the BUGmeisters themselves have been able to create this wonderous thing. PLEASE click on all the links, subscribe to it, favourite it and share it. It's a total joy and if they think it's a success, they'll do more of them. They really need to know they're not wasting their efforts so please take some time with this. If you start with the intro, the rest of the programme should follow on automatically.

Adam made a Celebrity Playlist for iTunes the other week. Think of it as his mixtape gift to you....that you have to pay for.

This may be a bit of stuff and nonsense but just in case it has any substance to it, I'll link it. This call for advertisers to buy space implies that the Weekend Travel section of The Guardian may cover Mr & Mrs Buxton renewing their wedding vows next month. Not sure when that might have actually happened, of course but I've been wearing a hat and shedding a tear every day since I read about it.

My other little blog has been giving daily links to the 6Music midnight broadcasts of the 12 Podcasts of Christmas shows on the iPlayer and their plundered podcast downloads so I hope you found them.
The Best of Adam's Big Mixtape Series One (I love the implications of typing that) are repeating from 26th December 2010 and I think the podcasts will plop into our boxes again. There are loads of Best Of Adam and Joe shows on 3rd January 2011.

The Guardian TV and Radio Blog takes any excuse to mention Adam and Joe. They go for it time and time and time again and again but this entry eloquently speaks for us all .

The Guardian Media Monkey is just as enthusiastic and Adam shared this photo with the Lifestyle section, showing Adam and Joe with Uncle Dave and Louis Theroux. I presume Adam's Mummy was doing some exotic dancing which distracted Louis when this was taken.

The Independent gave them a shout out today as well.

Attack The Block continues to be mentioned here are there. Britfilms have a proper page allocated now, as does Film Dates.

Jodie Whittaker was among an incredible cast for an episode of Jimmy McGovern's Accused and she gave an interview here.

Lots of bloggers and tweeters got excited when this still was made available for digital use, making a big deal of it finally being released even though it's the still Empire used in it's hard copy as far back as September.

For my part, I've given my Paper People Joe a little festive hoodie to wear on the tree.

Anyone who was lucky enough to attend the Ultra Culture Cinema Christmas Party would have walked away with a handy, pocket sized copy of Mr Lyne's review of 2010. I feverishly thumbed through the pages to check for a repeat of last year's inclusions and was rewarded with this piece from Joe. I can't remember if I put last year's page on here.....or indeed if it plopped onto the Ultra Culture website at some point ....don't think it did.

A lovely chappy called Mathew Cropper took these screenshots from the Adam and Joe Show to share with us.

Both Joe and Adam have had a crack at dining with satan's little helpers by doing voice-overs for GAME this festive season. I won't state the obvious about them both doing this, Joe first then Adam...

This tweet from C3PO made me smile.
