stupidity, daftness

Pictures Meme

Meme from ihavecake, I dread to think what you lot are going to come up with...

01. Think of the first word that comes to mind when you think of me.
02. Go to Google Images and search for that word.
03. Reply to this post with one of the pictures on the first page of results.
04. Put this in your own journal so that I can do the same.

A Weekend Bordering on Insanity

This year seems to have a theme of dancing in the traditional regions, having already danced in Northumberia (rapper at DERT) and the Cotswolds (although admittedly that was rapper too rather than Cotswold).

This weekend sees me in the Welsh Border, actually being unoriginal and doing border this time with Wild Hunt at The Two Rivers Folk Festival in Chepstow.

We have a programme for the weekend, which basically just says we'll be dancing somewhere around here *waves hand unhelpfully over the full map* on Saturday afternoon and then doing some more on Sunday.

Which means that I'll spending Friday evening touring the borough with Thrales and then need to be at Paddington at 7.45 on Saturday morning *gulp*. Must get the bad idea alarm in my head fixed at some point, either that or invent a few extra hours in which to do that sleeping lark.

If Only All Cover Versions Were This Original...

Take one dodgy 80s pop song, play it on a really poor quality tinny MIDI synthesiser and give it vocals that sound strangely like the bad guy in Commodore 64 game Impossible Mission and you'll end up with something like this:

Rank Sinatra - Take On Me (via cyberinsekt)

It's magnificent!

Just goes to show that you can make really cool stuff just using crap.
