Spike Jonze: Who? What? Who? Faves? @TheWorsties ? Boggins? Jedward?Byeee #AdamAndJoe #SaveBBC6Music

I love it when a particular dribble presents itself as a candidate for my daily post, rather than leaving me to plunder the endless depths of priceless nonsense in my locker unaided.

On Monday @ultrabrilliant randomly tweeted "Faves? Worsties?" and I couldn't resist the rather obvious reply of "6Music" and "BBC Trust".  I told the lovely @cheznoir that I'd find this beloved bobble for today's post.

One of the best parts of this is our old favourite:- the uncontrollable giggles (wherein Joe sounds like a flock of gently gagged Canadian geese). 

This was from the first show in the new 10am till 1pm slot broadcast on the day that Adam Buxton interviewed Spike Jonze at the Apple Store in Regent's Street about "Where the Wild Things Are".

For last week's Guardian Live Webchat with Adam, several people submitted these cutting edge questions and he was gracious enough to respond thus:-

1. What do you do? ?- Professional stupidman
2. Who do you do? ?- lovely wife
3. Faves? ?- my children and music
4. Worsties? ?- rudeness and litter
5. Jedward? ?- Nonethanks

Stay tuned tomorrow for a couple more ear salves about this momentous event.

@TheWorsties saw our tweets and offered the hand of help and friendship. They're on tour at the moment and they seem to be unsigned so take a little lookie here. They're "Alt Rock Music with Sex Appeal". This must surely be what everyone has been waiting for.

If you don't know what Jedward is a) you've not been in the UK during the last six months b) you're enviably sane.

I'm sad to report that Adam didn't seem to pick the right moment to probe the Jonzenator these answers but you can hear and see photos of his interview on iTunes and read lots more lovely stuff on Adam's blog. Can I draw particular attention to the YouTube comments page? Are there really people like this on my planet?

Finally, if you're prepared for a possible wait in a crowded virtual room, you can view Spike's beautiful Absolut film  "I'm Here".

Check out Adam's latest blog entry. Read what he has to say about 6Music, look at the picture of the the #Giftsquadron's hard work, download Adam's wonderful, passionate song and learn the words, make a video and tell your friends. Then, and only then may you sit down and have a cup of tea.


The BBC Trust page is here and to make it even easier, this is a really helpful page. However, this fella reckons that filling in the consultation is the way to go.

If you want to join in a friendly meeting of supportive minds, there will be a gathering next Saturday. Full details are here but in brief:-

Saturday 27th March at 12pm at Broadcasting House
(located on Portland Place, W1A 1AA).
The nearest station is Oxford Circus although it can also be easily reached from Great Portland Street.  See here for a map of the area.
