The Daily Teaser — 30-4-2013: Walpurgis Night … !

Hello … 

Looks like the government is trying to get tougher on prisoners.

Mostly by making sure that prisoners work harder for their perks.

I’ll be honest, I’m thinking that it’s not much more than what’s already in place: it’s simply the government trying to look tough on law and order.   JUST when there’s a huge set of local elections due on Thursday.

Guess we’ll have to wait and see what happens with it.   But I can’t help but think of an old phrase I’ve picked up, that’s very apposite for the news.

Same Shit … Different Gaol … !

Let’s move on.

Yesterday’s Teaser saw both Debbi and Mr Strict putting in their answers.

Yesterday saw Mr S* showing us how to do the Hokey Pokey/Cokey, the Twist AND the Hopek

It also saw Debbi† showing us this post.

On top of THAT, yesterday’s Teaser Mr S bagging 7 out of 10, and Debbi bagging ten … !

Enjoy your day: don’t get spooked … !













*        Mr S … ?   I think we’re going to have to name you as The Old Peculiar’s Official Choreographer in Chief … 

†        You’re right, Debbi, they do: I’ll have to keep me eye open for it.   Oh … Did I tell you we’ve got a Chief Choreographer … ?

The Daily Teaser — 29-4-2013: The Syncopated Wobble … 

Hmmm … 

That’s something of a worry.

The various changes to benefit — due to go live in Brentwood in 2015, from what I’m told — officially go live in Greater Manchester, today.

It’s called ‘Universal Credit’, so you know.

The worrying aspect for me is that — up until when the changes go through in Brentwood — my housing benefit goes straight to my landlord: something I’m happy about, as it means I don’t have to worry about it, just keep an eye peeled for the forms, as and when they come through.

It’s ALREADY been shown that arrears go up, in pilot schemes earlier this year.   Personally … ?   I can’t help but think the scheme — basically — whiffs.   In ways only fresh dog poo can.

Let’s get moving on, shall we?   Before I turn into Ben Elton.

Yesterday’s Teaser saw both Trevor and Debbi putting in their answers.   With Trevor telling us he’s a bit of a Terry Pratchett fan, and Debbi leaving me — and Sue — a comment about Journey To The Centre of The TARDIS — as well as admitting she’s got more books than time … ! — yesterday saw Trevor bagging 10 out of 10, with Debbi* scoring 8.

Let’s see how they — and you — do with today’s questions, shall we … ?

Q10) And finally … The Disc’s most powerful (living) witch first appeared in Equal Rites: who is she … ?
A10) Granny Weatherwax.
Enjoy those: I’ll leave you with a line of Milton …
“Come and trip it as ye go,

On the light fantastic toe.”Line 33 of John Milton’s L’Allegro
And with this dance … 


With this one, if you’re a nightclubbing Charleston type … 


A goat … 


Here’s something for those of us who’d like to strike a pose … 


And finally … ?

The MAMUSHKA … !












*        That episode seems to have definitely seems to have divided opinion, Debbi … !   (Oh, didn’t know you and Trevor were on Pinterest, Debbi: I’ll have to look you both up.   That’s assuming I can remember my password† … !)

†        Is it me, or are there getting to be a LOT of social media sites … ?   I mean, Facebook, Twitter, LinkDn, Pinterest, Badoo, VKonnect, Diaspora … !   One day, someone will invent a social network for the people who don’t want to be on a socail network: which will possibly be a day I slap someone … !

The Daily Teaser — 28-4-2013: Terry Pratchett’s Discworld

I’ve used the term, before, and I’ll no doubt use it again.

But I’ve had an earworm floating around my head, ever this I woke up.

Actually … ?

I think it’s since just before I woke up.

It’s baffling.

But the fact is, I’ve got Strawberry Switchblade’s Since Yesterday banging around my head, and I’m blowed if I know why … !


Actually … ?

I’m blowed if — after all this time — I know what the song’s about.   That’s the eighties for you … !

Let’s move on, shall we … ?   Yes, let’s …

Yesterday’s Teaser saw Debbi† and Adrence putting in their answers.   With Debbi telling us she’ll be looking at putting her work onto iBooks, and Adrence* telling us he’s got Star Wars playing in his head, it saw Adrence scoring two out of five and Debbi scoring up a full house of five out of five.

Let’s see how they — and you — do with today’s questions, shall we?   (I REALLY couldn’t resist this one … )

I’ll leave you with one interpretation of The Hedgehog Song


Whilst pointing you at what’s considered the definitive lyrics

I’ll also leave you with this quote from the birthday boy, himself …
“The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it.”
Terry Pratchett.
Have a good day … 










*        Adrence, it could be worse: it could be Darth Vader being REALLY silly … 



†        Hmmm … If you’re on the Kindle or Nook stores, Debbi, you should be accessible through the relevant iOS apps, Debbi‡.   (I’ve still not managed to try them, Debbi: I’ve only so much credit, I’m afraid.   I should be able to try for you, as and when.)

‡        Just so you know, Debbie, Apple takes a thirty percent cut of anything sold through the App Store: which is basically what the iBookstore is, it’s the book retailing arm of the Store.   (Yes, I know that’s what some consider a touch excessive: but it’s worked well for Apple.   It’s ALSO why Microsoft haven’t put a paid version of MS Office on the Mac App Store: they’d rather NOT hand over a slice of that one to anyone else … !)

Dr Who Series Seven Part Two — Episode 10: Journey To The Centre Of The TARDIS

Hmmm … 

You know, I think you can possibly tell something about a given episode of the new series of Dr Who.

Or, I can, at least.

The paste couple of episodes — Cold War and Hide — are episodes I’ve found compelling enough to almost immediately re-watch, once I’d recorded them.

I don’t know if it says anything about album I’m listening to — the soundtrack album to the rather good Small Town Murder Songs, which is well worth a listen — or the episode itself, but the album’s rather good.

And making for a rather good background music selection, whilst I’m writing.

~≈~≈~

At ANY rate … ?

At any rate, I started this with the intention of telling you about tonight’s episode of Dr WhoJourney To The Centre Of The TARDIS.

Hmmm … Let me try and summarize, shall I … ?

Journey To The Centre Of The TARDIS opens with the Doctor offering to show Clara how to fly the TARDIS, having gotten a touch crabby about her “She Doesn’t Like Me” comments.

Of course things go slightly askew when the ship is grabbed by the tractor beam from a passing salvage ship: crewed by Gregor, Bram and Tricky Van Baalen — Ashley Walters, Mark Oliver and Jahvel Hall, respectively — a trio of very likely lads, after the huge pile of cash they believe the TARDIS represents.

There’s problems, of course.

Not least of which is what happens when the Doctor realises Clara’s trapped … !

video

And that’s only at the START: there’s more.   But I think I’ll those of you haven’t seen it find that out for yourselves … 

~≈~≈~

Now … ?

Was I impressed … ?

Hmmm … 

Since the rebooted Dr Who started backed in 2005, the production values has generally gone up enormously, compared to the original series.

In that sense, Journey To The Centre Of The TARDIS is very much on par with the rest of the series.

On a personal note, I couldn’t help but think that the episode is something of a retread of Classic Who’s slightly less imaginative moments: finding that, if all else fails, running down HORDES of endless corridors will do.

Saying that … ?

Saying that, I’m can’t be to critical: it did confirm a long held fan idea that said the Eye Of Harmony is an integral part of a TARDIS, and goes a long way to powering it.

Whilst simultaneously making a mild mockery of the fact that that ship had to stop — in Boom Town and Utopia — to refuel.

You’ve gotta love a continuity hole, haven’t you … ?

~≈~≈~

At any rate … ?   Hmmm … 

I have to admit, I wasn’t greatly stunned by Journey To The Centre Of The TARDIS.

But I greatly suspect it may grow on me, over time.

If for no other reason than the teaser it’s given us for next week … !

The Daily Teaser — 27-4-2013: Freedom Day

Did I tell you I’m off delivering leaflets, again … ?

Well, I’m off delivering leaflets again,

Being frank … ?   I’m glad I’ve delivered to Brooking House relatively early.

No, really … !

They’re both rather tall buildings, and Brooking in particular, is a bit dizzying.

Oy Veh … !

Let’s move on, shall we … ?

I’ve another bundle to do, today … !

Yesterday’s Chernobyl Teaser saw Debbi putting in her answers: along with letting us know she’s survived the Great Nik Nak Email Disaster†, AND is thinking of getting a Mac‡, she also managed to bag eight out of eight*.

Here they are, along with the ‘How To’, License and video …

I’ll leave you with this tune … 


And this quote from the late JFK.
“The great revolution in the history of man, past, present and future, is the revolution of those determined to be free.”
John F Kennedy.
Enjoy the day … 













*        Good thing I know what you mean with Nuclear Graphite, Debbi: but, my word, that’s one HELL of a pencil … !

†        Phew … !

‡        Actually, Debbiª^, the thought occurs: you’ve said it, yourself, a few times, you’re a small business woman, struggling to keep her head above water.   Much like my ex-girlfriend, Allison’s, younger brother, Richard.   Huge Mac fan, Richard, and one who’s run his own car valetingº business for years.   He’d ALSO managed to buy his Apple kit from the Lakeside store: as he’s managed to ALSO get Apple’s business discount.   How much it was, I really don’t know: but enough to keep him going back for years, as Apple always applied whenever he upgraded.   Just a thought … 

º        Which is like car cleaning: but Richard — and others who provided the service — would also fill in scratches, give the car a serious polish, and do heavy duty interior cleaning.

ª        Just as a hint, Debbi: you’ll possibly find it handy to install one of the larger sized interior drives, in store.   But I’d suggest — if you get the Mac Mini, or 27” iMac — that you get RAM from a third party source: it usually works out cheaper.

^        Plus, of course, you’re an already established author: one who’s looking to expand her market from Amazon, Kindle and Barnes & Noble’s platforms to include Apple’s iBooks range …

The Friday Question Set — 26-4-2013

It’s got to be said … I’ve got to give Dechawat Poomjaeng — the Thai Snooker player who knocked Stephen Maguire out of the first round of this year’s World Championship — a bit of a nod.

I don’t think he’s going to make it into the quarter-finals, given the Mark White’s showing.
