Boots backs bestiality!


Boots backs bestiality!, originally uploaded by spinneyhead.

Pushes back like a billy goat on a cliff edge, apparently. Not a bad ginger beer, far more tingle than my home made stuff.


The Revolution is dead. Long live The Revolution!

Ickle sent me the link to The Revolution’s wikipedia entry. It’s the bit at the end that’s depressing-

All shares in the station have recently been purchased by Manchester radio legend Steve Penk, who has flipped the station back to its original Adult Contemporary format. Ths station is running promos and scripts which talk of a relaunch as “The All New 96.2 The Revolution” at 6am on Monday September 15th 2008.

The team behind the “old” alternative Revolution plan to relaunch the station online.

Arse! I’m going to miss The Rev. I hope the online version comes along soon.


I’m optimistic about today’s weather

Sun is shinin’ in the sky
There ain’t a cloud in sight
It’s stopped rainin’ ev’rybody’s in a play
And don’t you know
It’s a beautiful new day hey,hey

Runnin’ down the avenue
See how the sun shines brightly in the city
On the streets where once was pity
Mister blue sky is living here today hey, hey

Mister blue sky please tell us why
You had to hide away for so long
Where did we go wrong?

Hey you with the pretty face
Welcome to the human race
A celebration, mister blue sky’s up there waitin’
And today is the day we’ve waited for

Hey there mister blue
We’re so pleased to be with you
Look around see what you do
Ev’rybody smiles at you

Mister blue sky, mister blue sky
Mister blue sky

Mister blue, you did it right
But soon comes mister night creepin’ over
Now his hand is on your shoulder
Never mind I’ll remember you this
I’ll remember you this way

Mister blue sky please tell us why
You had to hide away for so long
Where did we go wrong?

Hey there mister blue
We’re so pleased to be with you
Look around see what you do
Ev’rybody smiles at you
Ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba
Ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba
