Monday Morning “Impediment to Productivity” – 20070312

I didn’t buy a ticket to the Grand Prix to see Evermore. A sudden outburst of reality (and a shabby bank balance) caused a rethink. Jools and I have friends over from England so we will be catching up with them this week and somehow I am sure this will involve alcohol at some point… Ahh the things we do.

Now this is what I call a mashup, take two of the greatest poets of your childhood and put them together. That’s right Bob Dylan and Dr Suess.”Dylan Hears a Who” is a six-song album of music adaptations of Dr Seuss storybooks sung in the style of the awesome Subterranean Homesick Blues-era Bob Dylan. TRULY MAGIC
If you use IE and the player poo’s it’s self you can download the album here.

Easter is not far down the track now. And that means it’s Chocolate Season (the season dates this year are from 01/01/2007 to 31/12/2007), Chocablog has a great little Howto for making your own 15″ high chocolate Dalek — they call it “extermination by chocolate!” Here are some of the ingredients –
* Two 8 inch chocolate sandwich cakes
* Two Chocolate swiss rolls
* McVitie’s Jaffa Cakes
* At least 400g of milk chocolate. (buy more, you can never have too much chocolate)
* 100g bar of plain chocolate
* A Flake*
* Smarties*
* Large box Malteser
Going well isn’t it and beats the hell out of those wimpy bunnies.

Dalek Chocolate Cake

This cracked me up. Forget the boring red post boxes why cant we get post boxes like these???

This is a going to be a great “Impediment to Productivity” this is a time waster that puts all past time wasters to shame. I bring to you… Mojo the monkey.
You have heard the old saying about a million monkeys typing will eventually come up with the works of Shakespeare (or a justification for Howard’s Iraq policy) well here is ONE monkey practicing his typing and you must watch every word he types.
If the gods smile upon you, you will witness Mojo type a real word that is a member of the English language. If this should happen, you highlight and tag the word with your ID. You will then be the owner of that word for all eternity! But be quick, because someone else might tag that word before you, if they haven’t already done it.. When the page fills up click new page and you will have a fresh new page for Mojo to continue practicing on. The more English words you tag with your name, the more points you get. Or you could just watch paint dry.

BLAME and crop circles all in one . from Jools Secret-places-of-the-earth
Time soak par excellence! Mind you, some people get excited about the weirdest things.
With love,

and also from Jools

Listen to the pathetic sounds of gelatin melting, melti…. aaagggghhhhhh!”

This is going to be a grea t movie.
It features a stunning and fearless 18 year old “dream detective,” code named PAPRIKA, who can enter into people’s dreams and synchronize with their unconscious to help uncover the source of their anxiety or neurosis. It’s got fairies, Monkey, Busby Berkley salary men and a soundtrack that kills. Jools reviewd it already at not dead yet

And lastly some of the other highlights from over at
this week. Keller Williams, The Last Town Chorus and the fabulous Arcade Fire all are very interesting. (The Arcade Fire CD is on in the background at the moment)
Have a listen

As usual have a good one


{Currently listening to Arcade Fire and Paul Winter Consort (recorded in 1972 and it’s still awesome) }
{Currently reading: Old Man’s War – John Scalzi. it’s a novel, it’s NOT a manual}
{Quick Status Check: Still going to hell}
{Crop Circle Status: Roll on May 2007}
