Ella Sings! 1965 Mack The Knife

Posted on

There is a colour version of this song from 1968 but she’s in more of a rush, so I’d rather see someone swinging and a swaying to the tune as Ella can.

Thanks to my music teacher from secondary school Mrs Michelle McBride for turning me on to the music of Ella Fitzgerald.

I’m a particular fan of this track as you may have gathered and I hope you enjoy it too.

Gladiators Introduction 1993

Posted on

I didn’t ven know they had a spot like this so I thought it was worth slapping onto let everyone know why I watched what I watched. Obviously they saved the best for last in both categories and it was a pity that Shadow didn’t stick around. Awesome. As for Nightshade … oh dear, let me put it this way, all I can say is … P.E. teacher.

Jet on Gladiators

Posted on

I was not into women and stuff as some of my peers were growing up until I probably hit 16. That is not to say I was unaware of the female form and had not appreciated it in some shape or form.

And this was the shape and form. I rejoiced when a cable/satellite channel chose to re-show some of the Gladiators as it gave me a chance to pass this valuabe lesson in the beauty and athleticism of the female form onto my son Kevaughn.

Deborah and Abigail also developed an understanding of what it is to be woman, that is the role model of Jet.

The only downside is when she opens her mouth to talk – as is the downside with many women – but it’s not all bad. So I give thanks for great blessings.

Jamie and the Magic Torch and Bakewell Tarts and Criminal Intent

Posted on Updated on

OK I’m on a roll with the ol’ YouTube clips tonight. I’m actually doing this whilst watching one of the later episodes of Criminal Intent with the wife.

Anyhow I was with some friends earlier today and I brought up the whole issue of loving the name Jamie because it was linked to this programme. Isn’t it wonderful how the littlest things can spark off the littlest things from way back when. Absolutely brilliant.

Jamie always rocked with me.

Oh by the way, the episode of Criminal Intent sees the one where all four detectives are investigating what appears to be a corrupt top judge. I believe it’s a rarity for all four detectives to be on the same show, so it’s a special justifying the late hours. (I should be asleep, it is after midnight after all, still on to the bakewell tarts for the last 20 minutes.)

Rock on Jamie.  Enjoy.

Shalom

Tales of the Unexpected and Expected

Posted on Updated on

I am a product of a lot of things – the genes of my parents, the way in which I was nurtured, the environment and influences that surrounded my formative years. What I cannot deny and repress is the huge influence television had on my life.

This programme was rather interesting. All I remember about the show was some link to Roald Dahl and some serious spooky stuff at times. What was also evident was the fact that it was scheduled on Friday evenings so sometimes in the summer I’d have enough time to watch this intro before I had to switch the telly off as the family observed the Sabbath that way.

In any case, for old time’s sake – here’s to memories.

Protect Secret Lemonade Drinkers – NOW

Posted on Updated on

My mate Lloyd on his blog – http://20six.co.uk/lloydd – has made an appeal for classic lemonade drinkers to unity and combat the evil of modern lemonades. Now I need more clarification on what is defined as classic and what is defined as traditional. I have a concern however that this campaign could put in jeopardy drinks like this one from back in the day.

Join in prayer with me that Lloyd is not referring to this. For the sake of all civilised humanity.
