Because recent posts have been long on vitriol and snark, here’s something nice. A song by My Morning Jacket, this video is from Okonokos, the DVD of their live performances. I like to listen to it with my earbuds in, especially on the chorus – it sounds awesome.

That said, whatever else she might have been, Amy Winehouse was an exceptional talent, and the world of music is poorer for her absence.

So, my wife and I were talking about straplines for our blogs. She’s a big fan of House, the medical comedy-drama starring Hugh Laurie, and was looking through various quotations for something suitable, and we were laughing at the funny moments.
She also asked me what the hell my strapline meant, and it transpired that she’d never seen the famous cowbell sketch! After considering and ultimately rejecting divorce, I decided to hunt down the piece in question; it’s one of the best pieces of sketch comedy in the world, and anyone who doesn’t think it’s funny should be taken out and shot.
To set the scene – the following is a parody of VH1’s Behind the Music, and is about the events around the recording of Don’t Fear The Reaper.

I haven’t posted anything substantial in a while, which is fine with me. BWO, remember? I do have something brewing in my mind about juries, grand and otherwise, but nothing written down, as yet.

A little Belle & Sebastian tonight, I think.
This is one of my favourite songs ever, which is something of a puzzle to me – I don’t really know or like much else of Belle & Sebastian, or didn’t the last time I checked them out. I don’t even know the lyrics to this song, to be honest.
I just like the way it sounds, which makes the actual lyrics irrelevant to me. My absolutely favourite part starts at around 2:10, if you actually decide to watch it.
The video is kind of fun, too; it just seems like some guys driving around and doing stuff, and somehow it seems to fit with the song.

A British man has been banned from visiting his girlfriend’s home after neighbors complained about noisy sex, a local official said Thursday.
A court barred Adam Hinton, 32, from being within 110 yards of the apartment of his 29-year-old girlfriend, Kerry Norris, Brighton and Hove City Council spokesman Mike Taggart said.
Residents of Norris’ publicly owned home had been complaining since 2006 about thumping music, banging headboards and screamed obscenities, Taggart said.
HT to Lottie.
Wow. Sounds like they were really having a good time…
