I know we have covered covers many a time, but the Independent wants suggestions for covers that are better than the original. They suggest ‘ All Along the Watchtower’ by Jimi Hendrix. Any ideas to top10 @independent.co co.uk
Yesterday I called in at Glastonbury on my way home, as I walked up the main street I overheard a mother tell her young son “Watch where you’re pointing your wand*”. I just thought that Glastonbury would be the only place you would ever hear that quote. Any more site specific quotes? * a gnarly length of wood.
I was caught up in one of those wordage pub games last night. ” Who’s got the box?”. Very frustating as didn’t latch on to it, and felt an idiot ( no real change there) when the answer was explained to me. Can you suggest other ones so that I can retaliate?
The Independent on Sunday’s latest top ten. Soundtracks that outlived their films. send your answers to email@example.com
Mine Probably the Sound of Music as I feel that there is a requirement in law for it to be located in every vinyl box in a charity shop
The Independent on Sunday is asking for suggestions in its Top Ten of songs as the post says, the title is only referenced in the final words. The example given is Up the Junction by Squeeze. In the one I posted before; http://theafterword.co.uk/two-minutes-or-less/ we had rather a good strike rate. Here’s hoping as I can’t think of a single one. Post to firstname.lastname@example.org
The Independent today has a request for pop songs that are shorter than two minutes. I know they can be googled but I throw it open. If you want to send them in it’s to email@example.com. Career Opportunities: The Clash 1:52
This is to complement the ‘Never heard them but, I know I won’t like them’ post,
The Independent today has a quiz about festivals. These bands are said to be playing, but are they true or false, and would you go see them?
Playing this summer are; • Destiny Potato • Klonk, You’re Dead • Alan Sunderland and the False Hopes. • Balls Deep
I sent a message to another member of the massive (I won’t say who), to ask why he had chosen his particular picture. I thought it was a splendid pun on his username. I received an email back confirming my suspicion. So why did you choose your particular profile pic? Is it someone you admire? does it show your secret side? Mine? All mine show have shown a fez, (the best headgear ever).
Just wanted to share this, and see if I can post. http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2015/02/17/ukip-trumpton-video_n_6698858.html?utm_hp_ref=tw
