Tenzing Scott Brown the novel contains the words...

In the Spring of 1964, when I was still only ten years old, my family and I were living in a little town in rural Scotland. My interests were much the same as those of most boys my age living where we lived: climbing trees, going fishing, hitchhiking to nearby towns, making catapults and killing things. I also collected stamps and birds’ eggs. I was not yet interested in girls. And music had yet to pollute my life. This sermon concerns the collecting of birds’ eggs. I am not sure whether there is any bird-egg collecting going on in The Bible. One never learns what hobbies Jesus had as a ten-year-old boy.

And the words...

My name is Worm. To be more precise it is ‘A Worm.’ The A stands for ‘Any.' One of the main things that humans don’t know about me and all the other several trillion worms alive on Earth today, is that we have seven lives. Humans are so caught up in their reality, they would never notice that us worms have seven lives. Even though one of those lives is lived within the psyche of a human. It was back in my fourth life that I began to see just how much humans were missing about the bigger picture.

Between the Autumn of 1964 and the Spring of 1969, Bill Drummond did not go to the picture house to watch films. The reason for this were...

All films made between the Autumn of 1964 and the Spring of 1969 were boring.


At 8 o’clock on Wednesday evenings Bill Drummond would watch The Wednesday Play on the BBC One. Bill Drummond would never know what the play was or was going to be about until he watched it. And every week he would look forward to watching whatever The Wednesday Play was going to be. Some were as dull as a maths lesson; others changed the course of his life.
