Track of the Week

Check this out jazz detractors and try detracting to this. Not possible. Genius and I love it. Note also that we see for the very first time a trumpeter (scroll to 11.00 minutes in) substituting his instrument for a salad cream dispenser. I think he would have learnt from this experiment that you should wash out the dispenser before playing it - you'll see him lick his lips and pull back from the dispenser, having consumed a quantity of salad cream you might baulk at had you applied it to a bunch of lettuce.

Shopping Chopin

Chopin is merely Lieutenant Pigeon without the lyrics. Watch the clip (above) of Lieutenant Pigeon performing ‘Mouldy Old Dough’. Then listen to Chopin Nocturne Op.9  No.2 with the Mouldy Old Dough Lyric incorporated (below). Then listen back again to Lieutenant Pigeon. Etc.

Not Seeing the MDF for the Trees

We’re all looking for the next Age. We had the Stone Age, a period of assailing animals/fauna with flint. We had the Iron Age. The Bronze Age also; followed up much later on by a Brass Age in the 1970s when horse brasses were used substantially to decorate pubs serving Watneys ale. All revolutionary ages of man profoundly marked by the adoption of a new material. A lot of us, however, little realise that we are in fact sitting in an Age at this very moment. The MDF Age.
It’s been very difficult to pinpoint exactly when the Iron Age or the Bronze Age started. But we do know that the MDF Age began precisely around 7pm on the 4th September 1996 with the first episode of ‘Changing Rooms’.  The DIY show, marked the first time we had seen a clone of Frances de la Tour from ‘Rising Damp’ (right). (CLICK ON 'Read more' LINK, BELOW)

App e-Christmas

The most popular expressions at Christmas have to be ‘Season’s Greetings’, ‘Merry Christmas’ and ‘I’m just going to get all my presents on Amazon this year.’
The latter is a bloke solution to Christmas shopping whether it’s applied to not being arsed or getting everything cheaper. That blokey attitude goes all the way back to the Three Wise Men. Namely, just buy anything remotely in the area of what might be acceptable, around the theme of a package with something in it. (CLICK ON 'Read more' LINK, BELOW)
