Before I get into it. This is for my nephew Finn who has been a very unwell wee boy. A trip in an ambulance with Grandma and some time in the hospital - not fun. Thankfully he is OK.

That was a crazy, crazy week. I feel like I haven't stopped since Monday morning. But now it is Friday.
I can't be bothered reflecting. Maybe next week. I think I'll just play a few songs.
Get into this....they're coming to Australia and they rock!
Monster Magnet - Temple Of Your Dreams: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F0hwDtph1do
DJ WhatsOn told me about this one today. I've had a couple of listens and frankly I think they've missed the point but make up your own mind.
Birds of Tokyo - Heard It Through the Grapevine: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mPzZL82NgF4
And look, this next one is a complete pisstake. If you're offended easily, or even fairly open minded you might want to pass. But it is funny, really funny. And behind the crass lyrics the musicianship is top notch. Again, you have been warned.
Steel Panther - Death To All But Metal: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yfB7vF7nCdA
And this is about a million times better than "Baker Street":
The Humblebums - Shoeshine Boy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AEx_HF6QLVI
And since I'm in a Scots mood, here's a great tune. It's all about hometowns. Maybe I like the song so much because I really don't have a hometown of my own. There are places with meaning in my life but I wouldn't say I was from anywhere in particular. And I can't imagine writing a song like this about Canberra. Don't get me wrong, I've been here since I was 17 and I have no plan to move but....
Billy Connolly - I Wish I Was In Glasgow: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BDXIYFDlC38
Time for a little comedy....Lenny Henry from a while ago. A friend had this on cassette when I was at Uni. Very, very, very funny from Dawn French's husband.

Since comedy is on the menu. Here's one from the king of parody - Weird Al Yankovic. With apologies to Kelsey and AB...
Weird Al Yankovic - Canadian Idiot: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C_TfBbR6L0M
And in closing a huge raspberry to Naomi Campbell who had the front to declare that she found appearing at a war crimes tribunal "inconvenient". Loser.
