Bits on the Side

I’ve lost my blo-jo. Don’t bother lookin’ for it, I’ve been searching deep inside myself (ew) for it, to no avail. 

Tis done. Tis ovah. Real life overwhelmed, won out, and now Lita resigns.  It was fab while it lasted, thanks for contributing/reading/commenting/visiting.

Donny and Marie do Star Wars

This vid is a classic, in a strange and too-awful-not-to-watch way.  

Donny and Marie Osmond have a go at making Star Wars a musical, starring as Luke and Leia.  Somehow they manage to drag Kris Kristofferson into the act, hamming it up as Han Solo.  Meanwhile, a platoon of Storm Troopers dance and sing Motown and showtune classics while R2-D2 panics.  It may have been the 70s, but still, there can be no excuse for this level of showtime disaster.

Remember, Luke and Leia did turn out to be brother and sister – maybe the Osmonds were on to something way before the rest of us.

Sleeveface

Always yearned to body double for Barbara Streisand or Paul Holmes?  No, me neither.  But, if I did want to, then Sleeveface is where I would post the evidence. 

Put a record sleeve or CD case in front of your face, align your body with the person on the cover, get a mate to take a pic and then send it to Sleeveface.  Awes.

Check out some of the more inventive photo submissions below.  The best are planned for a Sleevefaces book.

Simon & Garfunkel: Auckland bridges troubled sound system

A show to remember, indeed.   And when the sound goes down, the Auckland audience spontaneously breaks into song to fill the silence. 

This vid gives a wee clue to what it was like to be there, and from all accounts, a memorable gig from legendary masters of their art, Simon & Garfunkel

If it wasn’t for the tone deafness of the man singing his brave wee heart out in extreme proximity to the camera, this video would’ve sprung me some tears.  Apparently the sound of silence (oh yes, I went there) was more pronounced at the back, making the united audience participation all the more moving.

Swanning Around

Jeesh, it’s been ages eh?  Real life jumped up, bit me on my bits, causing unforeseen delays and a rather nasty scar. 

Bits on the Side posts will remain stilted and stunted, mainly because I have been focusing on choreographing my own shoulder ballet moves.   Check out the vid below to see my inspiration.

Remember to keep it real folks, or you can just keep it.

What Pasta Dish are you?


You Are Fettuccine Alfredo


Compared to most people, you have rich and decadent tastes.

If you can afford something, you’ll go ahead and indulge yourself.

You are a true foodie. No food is off the table for you.

You’re the type most likely to appreciate every aspect of a five star meal.

Plenty of food is off the table for me, but that’s just cos I’m a messy eater. And I’m also a busy bunny.  Blogging is temporarily on hold till the Easter cheese is fully consumed. 
Keep sending in funny pics and stories, just be aware that they may not get published for a while.  In the mean time, knock yourselves out over at BOTS archives.
