All hail Sir Ken Robinson, Jim Batt and Molly Crabapple for this wonderful video commisioned by RSA that I just watched at Laughing Squid through Youtube.

Internet you are Hooray.

I think I managed to reference everyone without taking any credit for myself.

I hope.

Defeat The Silence – Ooh. Snap, Crackle and K-Pop.


There is a storm coming and I am stuck inside but that is no reason not to listen to some K-pop.

1. G-Dragon

2. GI (Global Icon)

3. Psy

 

Thank you Kpop for Noobcakes.

Defeat The Silence – You Turn If You Want To.


I feel that these songs go together.

See if you agree.

Immortal Technique –

The Pogues –

So there.

Defeat The Silence – Bring Out The Beast.


If you have a spare 38 minutes and 20 seconds I recommend you spending it with this album:

My Baroness Thatcher related post for the day.

Trying to keep everything as opaque as possible.

Is it Tuesday already?

Culture of Illusion – Then The Ghosts Leave.


If you have seen Skyfall then you will be familiar with the approach to the island in this short documentary.

In reality the island is not the base of a Bond villain but was, for many years a coal mining facility run and maintained by Mitsubishi.

For a time it was the most densely populated place on the planet.

I’m not going to add any more facts.

Just watch this poetic short documentary.

Maybe our ancestors will walk through our own cities, in a similar manner to this gentleman, wondering at the devices that we left behind.

More about the film maker, Thomas Nordanstad, can be found by clicking here or on his name.

Defeat The Silence – Salute the Jug Band.


13th Floor Elevators full of anger, rage, passion and, not only sterling work on the jug but also, a stonking harmonica solo.

Rock. The Fuck. Out.

Culture of Illusion – Hungry for Love.


Samantha Fox, the British pin-up girl of the 1980’s and, therefore, of my burgeoning sexuality, had a very short lived musical career.

She is mainly famous for this:

Samantha-Fox-23

I have tried to make this picture family suitable. I apologize to all who have to witness this photograph but I wanted to show those who were not familiar with Sam Fox where her fame stemmed from.

It was not her love of rubber ducks.

Her biggest hit was this:

Once you have enjoyed that beautiful piece of pop I recommend that you then listen to this beautiful cover version by The Lost Fingers.

I am not not sure whether I created this post to show the weird picture of Sam Fox holding two rubber ducks or to introduce everyone to a lovely cover version of her one hit pop song.

That is all.

Goodnight all of the people.

Appetite for Distraction – Black Hole Fun.


I have just heard of these gentlemen on, of all places, the English language version of the news channel France24.

Thank you France24.

Merci beacoup.

They Rock.


I was very excited because The Naked Cowboy did put down his name for the race for The White House 2012. 

I then realised the last time I had heard this story was late in 2010 so I thought I’d check up on his campaign as I hadn’t seen him at any of the debates.

To my horror, on clicking on this website: http://nc4president.com/ I found that his subscription had lapsed. NOOOOOOOOOOOO! Today is the day that democracy truly died. Truly. Died. Not Truly Scrumptious, no, Truly Died.

(Thank you for the Chitty-Chitty Bang Bang joke; you are welcome.)

In my despair I continue to search for cowboy nakedness and thankfully discovered he has a reality show on Youtube. So click his picture and enjoy, as I enjoyed, the greatest 10 minutes of my life. You can then worry, as I did, as to how long he will be allowed to use the opening credits of The Sopranos, without being beaten around the ankles with lead piping, by HBO.
