Oh, one neat detail: cos I'm a British taxpayer, the Hospice can claim 25p on the pound through Gift Aid. So that means, in real terms, after they've been through a little bit of governmental bureaucracy, they'll net another fifty quid through IMCT.

Great work, James. The transparency was unnecessary, but appreciated. It's comforting to see something nice come out of these circumstances.

Thank you again, James. No need to apologize for anything. I'm sure it was hard work putting all of this together, and what a wonderful cause. Love the signature, too.

Top work all round, thanks James.
So what does Marconi playing the mamba mean? "Marconi" is referring to the radio itself. It plays a deadly snake. The snake - the mamba - is slithering from the speakers. Ready to kill greedy corporations. Ready to free the world of all that is evil, and to leave behind only the youthful idealism encompassed by the tenets of rock and roll.

Thanks for taking care of that, Maj, and cheers all around.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.
