Got this one from my wee Scottish auntie the other morning. Reminded me of my experience trying to program the U-connect system on my mom’s new car. :)
This motherfucker haunted my dreams.
Actually, not really. I loved Polka dot door. For all you Americans out there, here’s a little explanation:
Just had a flashback to my early childhood. This summabitch gave me nightmares too.
I’m in a Bob Marley state of mind this morning. Hope you enjoy this live footage and it helps you Lively Up Yourself. Happy Hump Day all!
Tried posting this on my old FumbleUpon page but since I slated my account for deletion it isn’t visible to all. Might as well share it here.
Whip me, beat me, call me Edna.

Is it just me or does anyone else get turned off by these overly stylized renditions of national anthems? Case in point; the opening ceremony for the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver Canada. I have nothing at all against the talented young vocalist Nikki Yanofsky since she is a remarkable and excellent little chanteuse. However, her rendition of the Canadian national anthem was so syrupy, slow tempoed, Muzak™ and lullaby-ish that I found myself yawning uncontrollably. Seriously it was all I could do to keep from hitting the mute button my tv remote. I don’t know who or why someone gave this 16 year old the green light to use such artistic license with “Oh Canada” but I was appalled. A country’s national anthem should be sung and performed with great spirit and reverence. It should instill a feeling of national pride, honour and dignity. If you look up the definition of anthem you’ll find descriptive words such as sacred, praise, devotion, patriotism, loyalty, allegiance and moralizing. All of which were missing in the performance last night. This is not the first time I’ve felt this way when I’ve heard other over stylized versions of “Oh Canada” or “The Star Spangled Banner”. It makes my innards wither when I hear some of these R&B, Gospel or Country & Western singers go overboard at sporting events like the Super Bowl. Some things are tradition and are meant to stay that way to preserve reverence. To me this is one of those items that is just not open to artistic interpretation for the sake of creativity. Could be an age thing (mine) but somehow I suspect not.
I’ll likely be spending more time here in a few weeks after that other site implements it’s 4th and worst user interface to date. It’s not so much the interface that has chased me off but rather the attitude of the site owners towards their members. That and the new demographic that they seem to be targeting is not (thankfully) my type of crowd.
