Shoes, and ships, and sealing-wax

The time has come, the Walrus said,
To talk of many things:
Of shoes, and ships, and sealing-wax,
Of cabbages and kings
And why the sea is boiling hot
And whether pigs have wings.

- Lewis Carroll "The Walrus and the Carpenter"

In what little daylight I actually saw on the weekend [I am a complete "night owl" and treasure my long lie-ins on Saturday and Sunday], the weather was lovely and mild with blue skies, perfect for a bit of pottering and basking. Now, like a flash, it's over again, and I am reaching for the bloody work laptop...

Never be despondent however, dear reader, when on this Tacky Music Monday there's the utter madness of Miss Heather Parisi [singing about sealing wax for some fuck-knows-why reason], lots of glitter and spandex, safety gays and bizarre almost-but-not-quite-right frenetic dancing to save the day!

Italian television spectaculars. They never fail to deliver, even if our jaws are now on the ground.

Have a good week...


  1. She did NOT need a close-up! Or as a musician friend of mine once said, "A lot of people got paid that day!" xoxo

    1. Bless her, Heather always seemed to have a cast of thousands, yet never looked anything but completely dead behind the eyes; going through the motions. She certainly didn't need a close-up of her unable to even lip-synch to her "big number"... Jx

  2. Blimey, it's way too early for this sort of frenetic activity..... i'm still dead behind the eyes and need another cup of tea before this makes any sort of sense.

    1. I don't think it passes much in the way of intellectual analysis... Jx


  3. Lovely Italian dancing boys and so many of them.

    The choreography was rather odd though, a sort of stabbing, punching version of Raffaella Carra's - Tuca Tuca

    1. As I suggested to Ms Scarlet, best not to think about it too deeply lest your head explodes. Jx
