Friday Fun – Elevator Woman

God
Bless These Modern
Inventions

A fifteen year old Amish boy and his
father were in a mall. They were amazed by almost everything they saw, but
especially by two shiny,  silver walls that could move apart and then slide back
together again.

The boy asked, ‘What is this
Father?’

The father (never having seen an
elevator) responded, ‘Son, I have never seen anything like this in my life, I
don’t know what it is.’

While the boy and his father were watching with
amazement, a fat old lady in a wheel chair moved up to the moving walls and
pressed a button.

 

 

The walls
opened, and the lady rolled between them into a small room. The walls closed and
the boy and his father watched the small numbers above the walls light up
sequentially.

 

They continued to watch until it reached
the last number, and then the numbers began to light in the reverse
order.

 


Finally the walls opened up again and
a gorgeous 24-year-old blond stepped out.

 


The father, not taking his eyes off the
young woman, said quietly to his son…..

 

‘Go get your
Mother’

Friday Fun – Tribute To John Sullivan – RIP

Somehow the sad news of the passing of one of, if not the, best comic script writer of our time had passed me by until I noticed an obituary in a magazine I was reading earlier this week.

John Richard Thomas Sullivan OBE (23 December 1946 – 23 April 2011) was an English television scriptwriter responsible for several popular British sitcoms, including Only Fools and Horses, Citizen Smith and Just Good Friends.

His last work was Rock & Chips, a comedy drama prequel to Only Fools and Horses. The final episode of Sullivan’s last comedy series aired five days after his death from pneumonia on 23 April 2011.

Words will never do him justice but hopefully this will.

“The Stealer” – Free

I went down to the centre of town
And my feet was a burning ground
She stood on the corner merrily as can be
I said hey good lookin won’t you come with me
She said yeah
I am the stealer
Came to steal your love

The sun was shining
The world was right
I said “tell me baby wha’cha doin’ tonight”
I’m goin’ round the corner
Where the music’s loud
I’m tired of the city
Won’t you come on round
I said yeah!
I’m the stealer
Come to steal your love

Steal your love oh yeah!

Goin’ round the corner
Where the music’s loud
I’m tired of the city
Won’t you come on round

Come to steal your love

Steal your love
Steal your love
Steal your love

Friday Fun – OTT Car

“American Car” – Clive Gregson

The above track is taken from one of my favourite albums “Strange Persuasions”

At the end of 1984 Gregson released his first solo record, Strange Persuasions, described by Hot Press as “a truly exceptional piece of work”.

Clive Gregson (born 4 January 1955, Ashton-under-Lyne, Tameside, England) is an English singer/songwriter, musician and record producer. He has toured in bands, provided backup for well-known musicians, and written songs that have been covered by Kim Carnes, Norma Waterson and Nanci Griffith.

His start in the music business was as a founding member and leader of Any Trouble, a band that released five albums and performed hundreds of gigs but which broke-up at the end of 1984.

Around the same time of the release of “Strange Persuasions” he partnered up with vocalist, Christine Collister. This partnership was to prove to be highly successful and helped re-invigorate British folk-rock in the late 80s and early 90s. So much so they were described in Rolling Stone Magazine as “the state of the art in British folk-rock”, the same magazine have also described him “one of their 1,000 Greatest Guitarists”.

Their first four albums all achieved chart success and numerous tours of the UK, USA, Canada, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and Japan further established Gregson’s name in the world of British folk-rock.

Throughout this period Clive was also a member of the Richard Thompson Band and in demand as a record producer and session musician. He compiled his second solo project, Welcome To The Workhouse and by October 1992 was performing as a solo artist again.

It’s Just Another Easter Monday

……………….though manic!

“Death By Chocolate” – Sia

Death by chocolate is myth
This I know because I lived
I’ve been around for broken hearts and how
Lay your head in my hands little girl
This is only right now

Death by crying doesn’t exist, though
The headaches feel a bit like it
You might explode
But you reach the end of the road
And you, little tree
I’m certain you will grow

Tears on your pillow will dry and you will learn
Just how to love again
Oh my weeping willow
Let your leaves fall and return
Oh darling the seasons are your friend

Death by anger this is true
Just let him go he can’t hurt you
Oh little girl this is such a cruel cruel world
This is the first, of a million broken hearts

Tears on your pillow will dry and you will learn
Just how to love again
Oh my weeping willow
Let your leaves fall and return
Oh darling the seasons are your friend

Oh it won’t be long you will grow strong
Up up and away

He’s but a falling leaf, he’s but a falling leaf, he’s but a falling leaf
