Sunday Music [like wot Mr Mags does]

Dusty round here innit? I wonder who left that curled up banana skin on top of the telly? Ahhh... I have found one velveteen sling back... the other must be knocking around somewhere, which must mean that I am very nearly ready to go stumbling over the cobbles once again.

And, as a warning, beware my new doorman, he is generally friendly but he also knows how to be a bit of a Beast.....





Please note, this Youtube has absolutely nothing to do with the above paragraph. I just fancied a tune, it being Sunday an all.

  1. Thank you, Tony!
    Though ruched, ruffled, and a bit tangled in net curtaining, I am back!

  2. With some grim irony here, the vid is not playable in Germany!

  3. Mr Von Lexy: Are you sure that my new doorman hasn't interferred with you? He's a bit blind.

  5. Ms Blue, I'm no longer feeling blue now that you are back (with a beast of a bouncer to boot)

    I've shut my quirky eye for good but you can transfer my club membership across to Away with the Mixer if you will - it continues to whirl around for the priviledged few.

    Much love xxx B

  6. I couldn't see any post, then I realised it was hidden under a few weeks of grime and dust, so I got out the Hoover and the furniture polish and it came up a treat!

  7. I'm Mr. blue
    I'm here to stay with you
    And no matter what you do
    When you're lonely, I'll be lonely too. (Yazoo)

    She lives! SHE LIVES! :¬)

  8. Dicky: Thank you, Mr Carter!

    Wendy: It's all to do with rotational molding... and knowing when to stop rotating.

    Bux: Oh, of course you went private, apologies, I await blog updates on Reader, forgetting that private blogs don't update.

    Savvy: xoxoxoxoxo too!!

    Nick: Steady with that Dyson crevice attachment...AND CAREFUL.... that is not a spider.... you nearly sucked up my false eyelashes.... but carry on, you are doing a fine job.

    Mr Maps: Oh, you big softie!!

    Nikos: Well that's what I wanted to know, but nobody has answered.

  10. OMG!!!

    I was just singing this in my head!!!

  11. Pat: Yes, I'm back and I have toileting facilities from Minehead to share!

    MJ: Yes, I saw your comment on Mr Von Loxy's post, as it popped up in my email, and I thought it was for this post... I was very confused for a couple of minutes!

  12. Love The Kinks, and that was a delightfully strange way to start my Monday (after a four-day "bank" holiday).

    Glad to see you back, Miz Scarlet. The web did seem a bit cheerier when I logged on this morning...

  13. I've learnt never to tangle with doormen of any sort...that's a great tune to mark your one-shoed return

    ReplyDelete
  14. Pearl: Ahh, thank you, Pearl!
    And I hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving!

    Mr Bene: Indeed, one foot is making crisp tappity taps on the parquet flooring, whilst the other foot is muffled by a sock.
    Don't mind the doorman... that's not a real gun he's holding... it's a water pistol... but it's the best security I could get.

  15. Welcome back! I'm glad your toiletry needs are sorted. The ditch bottom must be hell at this time of year! x

    ReplyDelete
  16. John.g.: Admittedly there is something to be said for the inside loo.... I shall leave alfresco toileting for the summer months, high days and holidays and for when I'm three parts to the wind.

  17. There was me waiting for Xmas – glad you have started your celebrations early I'll be back at Christmas although normally I don’t think anyone should start any sort of Christmas celebration before December the 1st *– I am however happy to make an exception in your case....

    * I had a go at my Canadian friend (was English but abandoned us a few years ago) who proudly announced over the phone that he had just put his Xmas decorations up. I pointed out that if he puts them up any earlier then there is no point taking them down....

    Great choice of song – especially when I discovered that your bouncer was cavorting around in your velveteen sling backs (he has surprisingly dainty feet for a big man). You should tell him to wear a slightly longer skirt or at least more industrial strength underwear not a good look the bulge hanging out of the bottom....

  18. Hola! Is this the start of Christmas festivities then?
    Or just a wee trailer for a bigger party later???

    ReplyDelete
  19. Am I hip enough to get past your doorman? Love the new face Scarlet

    ReplyDelete
  20. Is it Christmas? Christ! I've not done any shopping!

    I'm still amazed that that song was such a huge hit. That and Walk on the Wild Side. Don't people pay attention to the lyrics? Those songs should have caused riots in the pews.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Ahh...dear old Lola.Such memories!!!!!!
    Now then, Ms Scarlet, are you back for good or maybe back for just a hint of naughty?
    Either way, you're most welcome.

  22. Mr Logs: I will start playing Christmas Youtubes from December 1st, do you have any requests? I'm thinking Slade... bit more Slade... Sir Cliff... Slade... you know, just the stuff we rarely get to hear on the radio. Everyone will love it!

    Probably best not to talk about Mr Beastie's under garments; I apologise for his purple lurex posing pouch and I will pass on an instruction for him to read the clothing guideline set out in the Scarlet Blue Staff Handbook for appropriate attire. He should have at least shaven his legs.

    Macy: PARTY!!! Starts early December... with a little Slade number... well, we've not heard it for months and months.

    Ms Nurse: You are IN! You are on the list!
    Indeed, no facial plastic surgery here!

    Mr Banish: The Kinks were always controversial... but too good to ban.

    Dinah: I am back!! You know me though... comebacks have become my trademark blogging style!
    I'll try to be good next year.

  23. Please promise to let me know when you are coming again.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Pat: Yes, I will! I like North Devon and the Somerset borders. I very nearly contacted you when I was seeing the dentist in Barnstaple... but you would have then seen me at my very worst, i.e in scaredy cat mode, and all my appointments were very early in the morning.
    Next Spring or Summer we will have to meet up in one of the pubs you like for lunch, that would be nice.
    Sx

  25. Great. It would have been a loss. And I'm glad you've undeleted the explanation. Right, I'm off to buy some port, to read you in the manner for which your blog is befitted, or some other Downton Abbey style nonsense.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Looby: Hello! Yes, I decided it wasn't right for me to be driven from my own blog.
    And it is indeed nearing the cocktail hour. I will be having Russians, black and white, chased by several Moscow Mules.

  27. I have some Boys in camel one-piece uniforms shall I send them round to help you dust?

    ReplyDelete
  28. Good.
    And Lola? Of course I'm not allowed to listen to these immoral new pop-music from over the Channel ... as von LX has already pointed out this is not available here.

    Yes, Good. It's yours, and nobody else's.
    Greetings to Mr.Beast.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Lulu: Yes please! Mr Beastie is sloppy with crevices.

    Mr Mags: Mr Beastie is waving to you, which is silly of him because he is at the top of a tall ladder washing windows... oh dear, he has lost his balance and is now falling through the air... it's a good job I had the foresight to leave the trampoline beneath him...

    Being as I’m the original Grinch (except I appear to have misplaced my green hue) when it comes to Christmas - my song requests for you are :-

    Sufjan Stevens - "Did I Make You Cry On Christmas Day? (Well, You Deserved It!)" - I managed to make Mrs B cry one Christmas when my selection of presents didn’t quite make the mark – not sure she deserved it though

    Tom Waits - "Christmas Card From a Hooker in Minneapolis" – Guaranteed to make any cosy family Xmas interesting

    "Please Daddy (Don't Get Drunk this Christmas)" not the radio edit but the - driving through the bus queue remix

    Prince - "Another Lonely Christmas" just for those divorcees out there, wouldn’t want them feeling left out...

    King Diamond - "No Presents for Christmas" The year my Mother gave me just a toothbrush (not even an electric one) made me hanker for a present free Christmas in order to avoid the crushing disappointment of opening such a dud.... To be fair mum actually spared me that by not even wrapping it.....I guess you might be able to trace my Christmas Grinch persona back to my 10th Christmas


    Probably best not to talk about Mr Beastie's under garments; I apologise for his purple lurex posing pouch and I will pass on an instruction for him to read the clothing guideline set out in the Scarlet Blue Staff Handbook for appropriate attire. He should have at least shaven his legs.
    Ssssshhhssss For god sake don’t say “purple lurex posing pouch” out loud – I could do without any late additions to the Ambassador uniform....

  31. Now that I'm back in Texas, I can play the video!

    My kitty is named Lola.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Mr Logs: Ha! I'm assuming you grew up in the seventies... when homemade digital clock radios were fashioned from carefully cut squares of cardboard and lengths of string.
    Oh what fun we could have had with that toothbrush... for starters we could have polished our marbles and straightened Grandad's nasal hair.
    We must help you to get in tune with Christmas this year.

    MJ: Oh lord! And that was when the pouch was frsh and new, it has certainly seen better days. It's not so much purple now... more of a dusky mauve black.

    Mr LX: You are home!! How are the kitties? Were they pleased to see you??? News, news, news!!
    Does it feel strange? Are you pleased to be home or are you missing Berlin? Crikey, your adventure went by quickly.

  34. I am very sad to leave Berlin. The time there flew by so quickly. The highlight of the trip was meeting Herr Mago.

    The best part about being back was the kitty reunion.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Mr LX: Well, you're going to have plenty to write about in your next post!
    I can't believe how quick that time went.

  36. I don't think there's any rule that says your videos have to relate somehow to the things you write. At least, I hope not. I'm far too random for that!

    ReplyDelete
  37. What brilliant comments! And I adore Beasts - and the Kinks...

    ReplyDelete
  38. Mr Epic: Hello and Welcome!!
    If you like random then you're going to fit in here!

    Zed: Yes! I've been having a good old chatter!

    Mr Memphis: Hello and Welcome!!
    My Doorman wouldn't do anything like that, he is too much of a gentleman... plus I think he's more interested in his love mitten...

  39. When does the doorman become a Santa's Little Helper?

  40. Kev: Soon Kev, very soon! He is going to be kitted out in a pair of Freakin' Green Elf Shorts!

    Meanwhile, I am exhausted. I am helping my parents to pack there house up for a move from Kent to Devon... they have accummulated an large amount of possessions in the last 50 years...

    ReplyDelete
  41. Hello!

    I've just found your blog via Nota Bene and it made me chuckle. Not sure what the hell kitten heels are, but if I can find them in my size and some corresponding cobbles, I will give your advice a whirl.

    Andy

    ReplyDelete
  42. Andy: Hello and Welcome!
    Ah, the kitten heels are ladies shoes, but if you want to make a similar racket when walking down the street I would recommend blakeys.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Oh dear, poor you having to help move your parents' surfeit of possessions halfway across the country. Couldn't you accidentally lose some of them on the way? Sorry, mum, the van got burgled while I was in the loo at Tiverton....

  44. As every other bugger seems to be commenting, I thought I better add some of my own version of useless tittle-tattle. There will be no charge for this service.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Nick: I am proud of my packing expertise... which is good because they have plenty more for me to do.
    I have found some interesting items... did I mention the retro champagne glasses - a blob of Angel Delight would look well in them... and I have found something that Mistress MJ would love and I am toying with the idea of sending this something to her. She will either love it or think I am very peculiar.

    Mr Scruuloos: No charge!!! Good gracious, I pay everyone else...

  46. Is it a packet of HobNobs?

    I'd love a packet of HobNobs.

    ReplyDelete
  47. No! I am in two minds... I probably will send them. Yes, I will... but I just have to get organised and I can't promise that they will arrive before Christmas. Don't get too excited though!! It's just when I found them I immediately thought of you!

  48. I remember Lola from it's first outing, and I now realise that I have never ever actually listened to the lyrics!

    Welcome back.

  49. Ms Queen: Hello and Welcome!!
    When I was very young I thought this song was a Cherry Cola advert!!
    How wrong could I be?
