Down on Skid Row

Posted by thisisace on October 29, 2008

I came across this today by accident – and have been replaying it for the last half hour !

It’s a song from the brilliant musical film Little Shop of Horrors called Skid Row:

For a comic contrast, if you want a job that causes pain, trying this song (starring Steve Martin) as a recommendation ! 😉

And if you haven’t seen the film – do ! It’s amazing !

Overheard on the bus … (Good grief !)

Posted by thisisace on October 27, 2008

Older teenage / early twenties bloke was explaining to his mates why he’s studying film and media at college. Wants to make stuff that people notice, in his own style.

He’d seen an Oxfam advert, unlike the typical African-kids-starving ones. This was one was more unusual and starred Will Young.

He said, “It’s like, if you saw an Oxfam advert with Will Young in it, even though he’s gay, you’d watch it wouldn’t you ?”

From the sublime to the ridiculous !

Posted by thisisace on October 15, 2008

Been hearing this song all week on the radio and loved it ! It’s the new single from Leon Jackson (last year’s X-Factor winner, although I didn’t know that!) Don’t Call This Love.

For contrast, after all the Sarah Plain stuff, I thought you’d like the chance to be Barack-rolled !

Aha and John Cleese (2 great links)

Posted by thisisace on October 15, 2008

Had to share these with you.

Firstly, a treat for those of us who grew up in the 80s or remember Aha. Here’s the song “Take On Me”, but with new lyrics that describe what’s happening in the video ! Absolutely superb !

I’ve also just come across this short video, where John Cleese gives his opinion on Sarah Palin. The illustration he uses to describe her is perfect !

Sarah Palin links

Posted by thisisace on October 12, 2008

I can’t be the only one who is amazed by how badly Sarah Palin comes across. This Saturday Night Live spoof is scarily close to her real recent interviews.

However, she is also leading the fight to have Alaskan polar bears taken off the endangered list, as this would hinder oil and gas developments. Hence, this game.

Tom Milsom’s new track

Posted by thisisace on October 3, 2008

If, like me,  you’re a fan of the amazing Tom Milsom, you love the new track he has available from his Myspace page. It’s called Paradoxical Brain Cancer (the lyrics explain why !) and is incredibly catchy. I’ve been playing it repeatedly all evening since I heard it.

Oh, and if you’re new to Tom’s music, you can check out his music videos at www.youtube.com/hexachordal and his (hugely recommended) album is available from www.tommilsom.com.
