Vote now. New World of Sheds Custom Header!

You might have seen I’ve been fucking around with the custom header at WoS.  This is because, largely, I don’t want to go to the gym. Secondly, I felt like it was time for a change. I wanted to try and capture the essence of WoS, so basically, pictures of me. Looking fit preferably.  This was a nigh on impossible task, since I gurn helplessly whenever a camera is pointed in my direction.

Here is a poll to vote on what should be the new header.  I look forward to counting the millions of votes that flood in like fan mail for Cleopatra (coming atcha).  I’ll be thrilled if more than three people vote in all probability!

The Gravy Boat Podcast

http://poursomegravyonme.co.uk/2009/11/25/the-gravy-boat-episode-1/

If you’re not already listening to the Gravy Boat podcast, what the fuck is wrong with you?  I bet you spit on the pavement as well. You disgust me. 

The Gravyboat podcast consists of the holy trinity of my pal, Sherby57 and his mates ‘Shaky’ Greg and  and Rev. Boris.  Not really. But what you need to know is that it’s a weekly podcast from the Wazza (warrington) based trio and it’s rather good.It’s a humerous, meandering, freestyling conversation.  It will make you punch the air.   Find out more about it on the above link and subscribe to it (free) on i-tunes.  There have been two episodes thus far (episodes 0 and 1) and on episode one, yours truly featured, so it’s got to be worth a listen eh? EH?

You can also become a friend on Facebook and follow their tweets on twitter.

Listen to it. Do it today.

Straight Outta Swansea

Earlier this week I promised you to keep you updated on 123 Bummings! Exploits.  Well, I will not disappoint.

Earlier this year, Iona Tombola, rhythm guitarist/bassist/vocalist of 123 Bumming! started to get a Cheryl Cole type yearning.  No, she didn’t attack anyone.  She started hanging out with some of the main players in the hip hop/rap scene.  Not a week went past when she wasn’t spotted hanging out with members of the dark underbelly of the scene.  One night she’d be partying with Rob n’ Raz, John Barnes, and 2 Unlimited then next night, The Rebel MC and the Vengaboys in P-Diddy’s floating night club ‘Diddi-rama’.  Before long she was whisked away to Hillside in LA to record a track with ‘the Hip-Hop’s’ main player: Dane Bowers,  who produced this track. 

Do not fear, Bumming! fans, for Iona demanded that she play all the instruments on the track, to maintain artistic integrity.   Lead guitar and bass are all c/o Ms Tombola who also adopts her rap persona: MC Lizzy Duke.

For out foreign fans, a bit of terminology:

DVLA: Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (your DMV, American chums)

SORN: Statutory off Road Notification (a form you have to fill out to declare your vehicle is ‘off the road’)

Theory Test: A test of driving theory.  Road signs, stopping speeds etc

Special Brew:  A high strength, disgusting lager.

Swansea: Welsh city which hosts the DVLA.  

V11 : a form/reminder to renew your tax disc

Here is that song.

Seriously, why would you though?

Ah, you might have a hangover on sunday and fancy talking all fancy schmancy to me. There might be naught else to do but watch a desperately dull channel 5 movie about a cheerleader who breaks her leg but then turns it all around to coach cheerleaders for a little league (I don’t know what I’m talking about here).

123 Bumming! Puce Tape

Some of you may remember that I’ve been championing Carlisle Supergroup 123 Bumming!  You can learn more about 123 Bumming! on these links:

https://worldofsheds.wordpress.com/2009/08/23/angel-muzak/

https://worldofsheds.wordpress.com/2009/08/30/what-the-press-say-about-123-bumming/

https://worldofsheds.wordpress.com/2009/09/05/123-bumming-do-it-again/

A recent earthquake in the Tuba Monster Quadrant of Carlisle, dislodged an early 123 Bumming! demo known simply as ‘the Puce Tape’.  On this tape was 123 Bummings! first ever recordings where they performed a little known song ‘Gentleman’s Arena’, a tender song about and the expression of sweet, deep love by touching someone’s ‘arena’. We can hear on this early, raw track, Iona Tombola on rhythm guitar and vocals, Igor Biggun on another, er, rhythm guitar, and Hans Fiddling on blues harp.  The puce tape has been carbon dated to the Future, as their concept is so ahead of it’s time.  Scientists at the Angel Institute have verified, that there may have been some alcohol involved in this live recording. And lots of wood.

So listen and enjoy ‘Gentleman’s Arena’ here and the Shirokuma corporation remix, which is very good.

123 Bumming! met in a munitions factory during the second world war.  They were attracted to each other due to their mutual love of holding budgies and laughing at how stupid they looked.  123 Bumming like hats.  A lot.  They refuse to listen to radiators as they tell lies.  Damn dirty lies. 

Anyway, enjoy ‘the Puce Tape’ and look forward to next week where 123 Bumming’s Iona Tombola releases her solo single ‘DVLA: Straight Outta Swansea’. Until then, guard your Hoover Chamber and continue to be vigilant against high levels of sexiness.

Sexy Names Part Deux: The Origins.

Cast your mind far far back, to the dirty, filthy, sick and twisted, almost perverted, mists of olde father time.  Far, far, back, further, left…no that’s too far, your hand is on it, NO THERE…phew, yes. all the way back to the start of the week when I told you about sexy names.  I offered you the unique opportunity to sexify your own moniker, to possibly make you more attractive to the opposite sex/object of your affections.

I have been overwhelmed by the three responses that I have received declaring the excitement of this opportunity. Shadowsans on Twitter was drawn to ‘Porgy Mc Yaya’ but feared for his personal safety as to the heights of excitement this could bring, and whether he could sustain it.  My pal, Sherby 57 informed me, via telegram (he’s so modern) that he had been ‘Lord Sexathon Freakington’ but would forced to renounce his peerage as it was deemed ‘too sexy’.

I’m afraid, this position is no stranger to me.  You see, Dr. Angel is not my real name. Yes. I know. Really. Sure, I’m a real doctor, but my real name is not Angel.  I’m afraid my real name is too sexy to even say out loud.  The Angel Institute conducted a series of randomized control trials that revealed that my name being spoken aloud, or even thought silently in someone’s head, is sexy enough to permanently damage the temporal lobes of the hippocamper in the brainium vesicle.  You can see the results of this just by watching Hollyoaks.  They’ve all been told my name by evil Nick Picard aka Tony. This results in symptoms such as GCSE drama style acting, overemphasis of syllables, over use of stock phrases “at the end of the day” and other hackneyed turns of phrase such as ‘to be fair’ and not to mention ‘fair play’.

You see Gordon Ramsay’s chin?  Yeah.  Weird isn’t it?  Someone wrote my name on a piece of paper and passed it under his chin, much like the playful children’s game with a buttercup, but with heinous and chin wrinkling consequences.

In 1979 the European Court of Human Rights ruled that I was not allowed the human right of retaining my real name. I fought against this, tooth and nail, as you can imagine. The European court then responded by dealing the killer blow of passing the 1979 Right Said Fred convention which stated that any persons who may be too sexy for clothing, or their own name, that it inflicts harm on others, thereby compromising their own human rights, must be renamed a name of the court’s choosing. And so ‘Dr. Angel’ came into being.

Please click on the link attached herein and find my old comrade, Luther’s, blog.  I met him in Cuba in 2001 when I became aquainted with the delightful space cowboy, Ms impartial and the sexily named ‘Jen Bags’ mmmmmm. Jen Bags. she sounds like she might lick a tree or season some laminate flooring.

Anyway, Luther and I frequented some discussion boards or other, I can’t remember it, cos I’m painfully cool and things like discussion boards aren’t. Anyway, he’s found me here and I’ve read his blog, and it’s darn good. So go, look!  Enjoy.
