Lakenheath Old Boys

We are all former students at Lakenheath High School and other public schools in East Anglia. We were in school in the 70s and 80s and drank deeply from the well of British culture of those decades - the pints, the telly, and of course the footie!

Christopher Guest's New Movie "Mascots"

I had a chance last night to check out Christopher Guest's new mockumentary "Mascots" on Netflix. It's very much in line with his work in "This is Spinal Tap," "Waiting for Guffman," "Best in Show" and "A Mighty Wind." While he's got some Guest regulars in there - e.g., Parker Posey and Jane Lynch - it's the British characters that stand out for me. Chris O'Dowd, who plays "The Fist" and the father and son mascot team for a non-league British soccer team, are particularly brilliant. Check it out!
