Emily Rocks…

I think this is (with others) Emily De Cola (on the right of the screen) of the Puppet Kitchen in New York bringing to life what I consider to be an amusing puppet skit using a song by ‘The Darkness’ as the basis. To be fair, I think she is just puppeteering on this one – but I’m biased and think she’s great !

Ciggies and Booze – You’re Bound to Lose…

I’ve not been here for a while because I’ve been in hospital having, what amounts to, a bypass operation on my leg.
Today I had the smallest toe on my left foot pulled / cut off along with other dead bits of flesh on my big toe.
Later I attended a nurse’s appointment where about 56 staples were removed from my leg (from groin to lower shin).

All of this came about because I smoke and drink and am diabetic

Amusing Boogie…

I was a big fan of T. Rex in my youth. I got to see them live around the time they were becoming less popular. I went to a relatively ‘local’ concert (not London) with some friends one of whom was a tall, athletic and quite attractive young lady who seemed to find me interesting. About half way through the (standing only – no seats) show she clutched my arm and promptly fainted. It was a hot night / room and you could still smoke in public places back then. Almost certainly, it was more than cigarette smoke that had created the fug we were all breathing in! Friends and strangers noticed what had happened and made as if to help but I ‘signalled’ that I would deal with the situation. Tall, athletic young women are not as light as they may appear and I nearly did myself an injury dragging her inert body to the back of the huge room. She eventually revived and after a few minutes outside breathing fresh air, we returned to the show. The young lady never became more than a friend as I had a serious girlfriend at the time (away at university) – but I sometimes wonder…

Anyway, I like this video…
