And Then, What I Want...

While a-slippin’ an’ a-slidin’ round that YouTube bit of the Web of Nets, hunting down those toons for the last post... Pardon? No, it wasn’t the last post; I’m still here – last nights post - I ran into that wot you’ll find way below in blue.

Now that is definitely wot I want for Christmas. Oh, and if I get one, or is it some{?}, can I please take it/them with me when I go?

Could I play that kit I hear you ask. Why not? It looks like most of it’s on automatic. Just set him up and away he goes, right? Okay, I’ll give my head a shake, but the fun I could have just making random noises would be so, like, awesome. And I’m sure the neighbours, nay, the whole damn street, would be more than thrilled to see that kit rolling off the back of an eBay truck and into our drum.

Never mind; never going to happen is it, but, right now, I neeeed one.

However, looking on the bright side, I do have some redundant plumbing kit and, fortuitously, an old pair of flip-flops. Or is that a pair of old flip-flops?

Two cowboys were waiting in their fort for the Indians to attack. They listened to the distant pounding of war drums.  One cowboy muttered to the other, "I don't like the sound of them drums."
Just then, a distant voice came over the hill, "It's not our usual drummer!"

The guy playing the pipe is nothing new, it was originated by these guys - you perhaps remember them doing a TV advert for Intel processors in the 90's.

Donna Summer's 'I Feel Love' with Anette Strean from Venus Hum. She nails it.


And one of my favorites of theirs, 'Rods and Cones'.


Of course, If you want to go to extremes, you can probably make the charts by smashing up your kitchen. I never knew that a chest freezer had such a nice bass tone.

Thanks for the links and I enjoyed the first two and I obviously need to get down to the plumbing suppliers for way more pipe. No, I never caught the TV advert as I was out of the UK for most of the 90’s.
As for the last link...

Ripper - Thanks for the Anette Strean clip. Odd but very compelling :-)

Ripper said...

Caratacus - no problem. She has a great voice and a permanent smile - she must have been reading this blog.

Mac - This is one of the Intel adverts from 2000. They did more but I can't find the ones with the UK voice over.

Caratacus, Ripper,
Caratacus, agreed those are damn good links and visiting a plumbing store will never be the same.
Ripper, thanks for your trouble. Appreciated. And thanks for the ‘smile’ complement you slipped in there. Hope this makes you smile:
“Due to a water shortage in Ireland, Dublin swimming baths have announced they are closing lanes 7 and 8.”
Was that a groan I heard?

Ripper said...

Mac -only you could deliver a joke like that, and leave a smile rather than a groan. It kinda reminds me of this one...

The head of the Irish Space Program announce at a press conference that the Irish were planning a manned expedition to the sun, to collect samples from its surface. A reporter stuck up his hand and asked "But will the rocket not incinerate as it gets too near to the sun?" To which came the reply - "Of course not, we will be going at night".
