Currently listening to

Thursday, January 13th, 2005

I don’t want the link to Jason Bradbury’s Tsunami ‘Gadget’ Song to fall down the page but I’ve a trolley load of links to disperse so DING! I’ve googled and googled and stolen temporarily borrowed a rather fetching model sporting a fab set of headphones courtesy ISVR:

I’m going to put a little “currently listening to” link at the bottom of each post as a little reminder to go buy some fine music and make a small donation to tsunami relief.

Currently listing to: Jason Bradbury’s Tsunami ‘Gadget’ Song. Will Michael ever forgive my fickle heart?

As you were, troops.

Tsunami ‘Gadget’ Song

Thursday, January 13th, 2005


Get thee on over to Gia‘s mate Jason Bradbury (he of Channel Five’s Gadget Show fame etc.) and buy the delicious Take it Higher for just 99p (that’s well under $2) – all proceeds go to the tsunami relief fund.

Go on, off you go!

Blogging for Aid #8 [Competition!]

Tuesday, December 28th, 2004

Someone has taken the time to ask Google to translate this page [merci!] and as I chuckled at the very literal translations of blog names I had a “ding” moment – how about a quick quiz – the first one to leave a comment with all answers correct gets a Daisy Winter Burn – similar to the Summer Burn cd but with a few surprises. So, here’s Quiz #1 : French:

  1. Nymphe D’Enchaînement
  2. Pas asse’ont dessiné dans le monde
  3. Aléatoire Pense
  4. Chien ou plus haut
  5. Lait Et Biscuits
  6. Le Cancer rit nerveusement
  7. Une belle révolution

  10. Je pourrais avoir été un compétiteur

Fans of Damien Rice with access to BBC 4 might like to tune in tomorrow night (Friday 26 November 2004) for a one hour candle-lit concert recorded a fortnight ago at LSO St Luke’s in London. Tracks from O will be making an appearance, as will “strong language” for some reason.

Those of you out carousing on Friday nights or with rugby addicted partners wanting to watch the Wasps v Worcester game on another channel will have to wait until 02:10 the following morning.

is the best way to describe my stash of links so without further ado:

Abba Richman’s alphabet photography; a colour version is here.

[*ahem* LINK NOW WORKS] A video for Michael Andrews and Gary Jules’ Mad World – schoolchildren create montages of moving figures [caution: not for those who suffer from vertigo] [via Milk and Cookies].

Sallie’s list of things you don’t want to hear at a tattoo parlour.

The official God FAQ [via Adrian].

I’ve been looking at great css layouts recently and came across this rollover effect on Macrabbit’s CSSEdit for Macs. *Swoon*.

How to be a programmer.

And finally: cute dogs of the week award goes to this pair Tiny red heart

Take one song

Saturday, August 7th, 2004

…by the Backstreet Boys, add some new lyrics and you have Wierd Al’s Ebay Song and The Fat Babe Song [via]. It’s what the internet was invented for.

Had a wonderful day despite the heat. Such a wonderful day that I’m absolutely jiggered and am about to retire to my bed at the impossibly early time of 22:40. I’ll be wearing slippers and drinking Ovaltine next.

Bonne nuit mes p’tits.

Summer Burn 2004

Monday, August 2nd, 2004

Quick summary: Summer Burn 2004 was run by the good folks at FunJunkie, you create a mix cd (or two) and send it off to the addresses sent to you by random. And you receive two mix cds.

I got my first one and I now need to go spend serious money make a big list for Santa.

Here’s the playlist:

A Bicycle Built for Two

Saturday, July 31st, 2004

…how many nifty links can you provide using song lyrics, hmmmm?


Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer true.
I’m half crazy all for the love of you.
It won’t be a stylish marriage, I can’t afford a carriage;
But you’ll look sweet upon the seat
of a bicycle built for two.

And what better way than with a little music.

First up there’s a great animated version of Shake That Ass from gorkhouse (the kids will love this one if you don’t mind them singing it in the playground, in the supermarket…)

Then there’s a clever little site from Sveriges Radio [via Milk & Cookies] that lets you type in the lyrics to a song and it will play back those lyrics by a variety of bands. If it doesn’t recognise any of the words, you’re asked to supply the word, the song and the artist. You will be delirious to know that I’ve just added I’d and harmony so that “I’d like to teach the world to sing” can be requested. No, no, it’s okay, I’m a walking public service me.

Lastly, there’s a new band called Santo El Diablo and they need votes on XFM’s unsigned. If you have a listen to the track by Santo El Diablo called Scream Freak and like it, have a vote. Oh and the deadline is 11pm BST today so rush, rush like the wind…
