It’s the muppet show…

The Muppet ShowRebekah has started watching my “Best of the ” videos. Yes videos, not DVD’s… The box set has 6 VHS tapes with 6 episodes per tape and it covers pretty much the 36 biggest stars they had on the show. I don’t think you can get the same on DVD, which is a shame. Although I have noticed that they seem to be releasing the seasons DVDs… I just wonder how long it will take them to release the 5 years worth of footage. Season One is out now and it contains the first 18 episodes… oddly enough, none of them are on the box set I have!

Anyway, so much fun watching it back. I wish they would do an update one as I would definatley put it on my must watch list on a Saturday night.

Strangely enough… we also have 2 videos of Muppets compilations which both the kids love, however a few years ago when I bought the box set based on the fact that Rebekah seemed to love The Muppets compilation, she got bored of the show really quickly. I guess she didn’t take to all the incidental stuff inbetween acts. Now she loves it though, but Jacob who is about the same age Rebekah was when I first bought it, also gets bored quickly.You can see more on The Happy Pooch.

Nivea for Men on the radio

Nivea for Men
Nivea have a range of adverts for their mens products running on the radio at the moment. I heard one this morning that tickled me so I thought I’d mention it here and give them a few minutes of free ad time on my blog!

In the background you can here the sound of a ZX Spectrum loading a game. The voice over says “Does the sound of Manic Miner and Jet Set Willy loading, tingle your skin… then you need Nivea for Men…” blah blah blah.

The real scarey thing is; I know it wasn’t Manic Miner or Jet Set Willy that was loading – it sounded wrong!

It’s just a jump to the left…

Those lips... Watched on DVD again for the first time in ages. I always love watching it, never tire of it. So many memories from my youth! đŸ™‚ The script is great, so many fantastic lines. And many of the songs are actually quite touching like “Superheroes” and “I’m going home”.

Don’t forget your shovel if you want to go to work

Half these songs are about you… by Nizlopi has been my favourite album of the last year, and it looks like they are finally starting to make the break… I believe JCB is released for Christmas… it deserves to be No.1 – I love the song, and the lyrics are just so lovely…

JCB
Luke Concannon – Nizlopi

Well, I’m rumblin’ in this JCB.
I’m 5 years old and my dad’s a giant sitting beside me.
And the engine rattles my bum like berserk
While we’re singin, ‘Don’t forget your shovel if you want to go to work!’

My dad’s probably had a bloody hard day
But he’s been good fun and bubblin and jokin’ away
And the procession of cars stuck behind
are gettin all impatient and angry, but we dont mind.

An’ we’re holdin up the bypass – oh
Me and my dad havin a top laugh – oh woah
Sittin on the toolbox – oh
And I’m so glad I’m not in school, boss
So glad I’m not in school
Oh no…

And we pull over to let cars past
And pull off again, speedin by the summer green grass
And we’re like giants up here in our big yellow digger
Like zoids, or transformers, or maybe even bigger

And I wanna transform into a Tyrannosaurus Rex!
And eat up all the bullies and the teachers and their pets
And I’ll tell all my mates that my dad’s B.A. Baracus
Only with a JCB and Bruce Lee’s nunchuckas

And We’re holdin up the bypass – oh
Me and my dad havin a top laugh – oh woah
Sittin on the toolbox – oh
And I’m so glad I’m not in school, boss
So glad I’m not in school

And we’re holdin up the bypass – oh oh
Me and my dad havin a top laugh – oh woah
I’m sittin on the toolbox – oh oh
And I’m so glad I’m not in school, Boss
So glad I’m not in school

Said I’m Luke, I’m five, and my dad’s Bruce Lee,
Drives me round in his JCB.
I’m Luke, I’m five, and my dad’s Bruce Lee,
Drives me round in his JCB.
I’m Luke, I’m five, and my dad’s Bruce Lee
Drives me round in his JCB.
I’m Luke, I’m five, and my dad’s Bruce Lee,
Drives me round

And we’re holdin’ up the bypass – woah
Me and my dad havin a top laugh – oh woah
And I’m sittin on the toolbox – oh
And I’m so glad I’m not in school, Boss
So glad I’m not in school

Aw, I said

I’m Luke, I’m five, and my dad’s Bruce Lee,
Drives me round in his JCB.
I’m Luke, I’m five, and my dad’s Bruce Lee,
Drives me round in his

Aw, I’m Luke, I’m five, and my dad’s Bruce Lee,
Drives me round in his JCB.
I’m Luke, I’m five, and my dad’s Bruce Lee,
Drives me round in his JCB

Twin Peaks

Laura Palmer - Wrapped in plastic I’ve started re-watching in the evenings to try and stimulate my mind a little. “All work and no play make Ben and Jerry dull boys…”, and I so miss it… on the whole, Twin Peaks was fabulous TV, yes there are some dodgy bits, yes there is some dubious acting, but as a general rule it’s great. I’d love to see a cut with parts of the incedental stuff taken out..

I have always been dissapointed by the fact that more Twin Peaks or Twin Peaks spin offs were not developed… Just a show about Lynch’s view of the FBI would be fantastic alone… Agent Dale Cooper, Albert Rosenfield, Gordon Cole, Chet Desmond. I think Twin Peaks alone was responsible for my need to be able to drink coffee black (“Black as midnight on a moonless night.”)

Coop and Albert have some of the most mermorable lines ever, just thinking of Albert alone, almost all his lines are memorable…

ALBERT
What the hell kind of a two-bit operation are they running out of this tree house, Cooper?

ALBERT
I have seen some slipshod backwater burgs, but this place takes the cake.

ALBERT
What are you waiting for, Christmas? We’ve got work to do damn it. They’re putting this girl in the ground tomorrow and we’ve wasted half the day traveling out here to the middle of nowhere

ALBERT
Mr. Horne, I realize that your position in this fair community pretty well … guarantees a venality and sincerity and uh … a rather irritating method of expressing yourself. Stupidity however, is not a necessarily inherent trait. Therefore, please listen closely. Your can have prestigefuneralplans any ol’ time. You dig a hole, you plant a coffin. I however can not perform these test next year, next month, next week or tomorrow. I must perform them now. I’ve got a lot of cutting and pasting to do gentlemen so please why don’t you return to your porch rockers and resume whittling.

ALBERT
Oh yeah, well I’ve had about enough of morons and half wits, dolts, dunces, dullards and dumbbells … and you chowder head yokel, you blithering hayseed. You-you-you’ve had enough of me?

And I could go on – Albert hasn’t even finished 2 episodes and he has more quotes than I can shake a stick at…

I just wish someone would hurry up and get the rest of the episodes out on DVD – my video player is dead so I can’t watch all my videos. I’ve read somewhere that Paramount are putting it out around spring 2006.
