Cover up

50 best covers of all time according to the Telegraph.
Wot no…?

  • The Sundays’ version of The Stones’ "Wild Horses"
  • William Shatner doing Pulp’s "Common People"
  • Melt Banana doing "Surfin’ USA"

Glad they put Siouxsie Sioux doing "Dear Prudence" in the list – one of the best covers ever, IMHO.
Link via lots of people, but firstly Gordon.


Thanks to Ian for the tip-off, I’ve now installed Kitten’s Spaminator. Let’s see if it effectively kills off the spam comments.
If you have a problem posting a comment, let me know by e-mail and I’ll see what (if anything) I can do.

Strutting our funky stuff

A rare photo of me dancing. Note that I succeeded in carrying this feat off without falling over, whereas my wife has sufficient grace and elegance to not only look fabulous whilst dancing, but can also hold a large gin and tonic without any spillage.

Just how many…

…shades of off-white are there? I’ve just been down to HomeBase, thinking I could get a wedge of testpots for us to daub artfully on the walls of the New House™. However, the truth is that without my new (to me) free (when purchased with any Peugeot 306) wheelbarrow and a very large sum of money, there is no way that I was going to get a representative selection. So, this evening, H and I will sit with the colour charts and try our best to decide which ones to get testers of.
And, incidentally, how can Farrow and Ball justify charging three times the price of anyone else for their magnolia paint? And would anyone want to paint "Dead Salmon" on their walls? Who comes up with these names?

Spam comments return

It looks like the spam commenter has returned – 15 this morning, so he’s clearly got a workaround for the anti-spam measures I took. I’ll have to look into some of the other anti-spam measures available to me.
