Farewell, Oscar Peterson

Oscar Peterson died on Christmas eve. What a man. You still look good to me….

Weapon Of Choice – Fatboy Slim

I was just listening to the radio, humming away to myself for a few minutes whilst the phone stopped ringing for the first time today (!) and this tune came on… which reminded me to look at what I feel is the finest pop video in many, many years.

Four year old drummer to Sammy Davis Jr in about ten minutes

Lily and I do things a bit differently every Friday… we have a break from ‘story’ before bedtime, and it quite often involves surfing things on Youtube. To have all those amazing things from my childhood (and since) at my fingertips never ceases to amaze me; it won’t amaze Lily and her generation. For that, she’ll never be grateful – she never should be – ...[Read More]

The jagged teeth of hill reps

It may feel like utter death on toast when you’re doing it, and you swear you’l never do it again through the blood you’re coughing up each time you do it, but having a GPS with a heart rate monitor makes hill reps something interesting to look at… 1900 feet of climbing and descending compressed into a zip ride.

Hammer Time

What amazes me about this film is how the man seems to have no bruises apparent from practising his art…

‘That’s gonna cost you’ Aeroplane Situations

I’m not quite sure what amused me about these… I think it’s just the expense of it all… Dark Roasted Blend: Airplane Oops! Situations
