Smart Music

Okay, because you demanded it, here's a link to my band's webpage where you can preview and buy some of our songs:-

Visit Junkfood at Arkade

Let me know what you think...

No, honestly...

Okay, just tell me good stuff! (After all, no artist really wants to hear constructive criticism--only total flattery.)

Holy Cow!

You may think that if God had wanted us to drink skimmed milk, he would have made cows that produced it.

Well, he does and he did.

Stupid World Live

Continuing my mission to update you with the latest in stupidity, you'll find a new addition to my already-crowded left-hand bar: Stupid World Live.

This will feature well... stupid things that you shouldn't try to attempt at home.

Apart from clogging up your internet connection, I hope this is a welcome addition to my blog.

This "video bar" is something that you can have too--Blogger now offers you the chance to add one to your blog, and you can filter the content by adding keywords. Unsurprisingly, mine was "stupid accidents"--but I'll probably change that from time to time.

Have to go: smart things to do...

Smart Blogs

Without doubt, the burning question on every blogger's mind is, "How do I get a plug from Richie?"

Well, you should have a blog that is intelligent, witty, informative, entertaining and written in a style that would have Hemingway fuming with envy*.

Washed and Ready to Eat
is just such a blog! It's hosted by an old friend and colleague of mine, Phil Woodford, who works in the advertising industry as a copywriter. His observations on the pangs and quirks of modern life will have you smiling at the recognition of things you'd thought but never put into words... Enjoy!

* Failing that, just give me a plug and I'll do the same... ;)

Stupid Coruña (3)

I Steal, You Steal, He/She It Steals...

You may think that criminals are uncultured, stupid people. Normally, you'd be right. But here in Coruña the criminals are a cut above the usual...

Yesterday, two individuals broke into a book shop and, in addition to 300 euros in cash, they stole various copies of a language course on CD.

Now, I don't know what language they wanted to learn, presumably it was English. But doesn't it warm your heart to see that even members of the criminal underclass are keen to maintain their studies? After all, I'm sure most robbers could benefit from being able to speak a foreign language. It must be terribly frustrating for them trying to mug English or American tourists and not being able to get past the language barrier.:-

"¡Dame el dinero!"

"I'm sorry, I don't understand."

"¡Dame todo tu dinero ya! Y ese Rolex que tienes alli."

"Excuse me? Ah, you want to know the time? It's four O' clock--nearly tea-time."

"Joder, olvidalo hombre..."
